Ratings and Reviews
Amazing, highly recommended.
Hello Werdsmith team,
I would like to start this off to say, how this app has encouraged my love of writing into a passion. I am very glad I downloaded this app when I had the chance. Even though, I’ve had Werdsmith for less than a year, I still adore it. I used to not even know how to properly use a comma, semi colon, nor have a A in my English class. My favorite part of the whole set up would have to be, how you distinguish ideas and projects into separate categories. Love it! It’s to die for, therefore I am that type of person. 😂 Anyways, even though I did give you guys a five-star rating, I hope you wouldn’t mind if I made a suggestion. I know a heap load of apps have this nowadays, and was wondering if you could add an (a free) nighttime theme. That would help out a lot. I normally write later in afternoon when I have the chance and it’s almost blinding to look at a full out white screen. Now, I know you have different themes, but I don’t want to spend that type of money. I simply have the free version. I hope you guys take my commentary to consideration. Thank you, have a good day and or night.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to write your review and we're glad you're liking the app! To answer your question about who the membership is benefiting, we personally believe that both parties benefit. The membership allows us to continue working on the app so that the user has a product that is constantly evolving and improving. Without our subscribers, we wouldn't be able to spend as much time improving it, updating it with suggestions made by our users and providing customer support. Thanks - Nicole.
I have now bought this app twice and they still want more money
I am going to leave what I originally wrote just so people can see why you responded but I would like to follow it up. The restore purchases thing did work. The app is now working correctly with all of my features restored. Sorry for the knee jerk reaction. I love the app and would highly recommend it. Also thank you for the speedy reply. I really do love your app and use it for everything from list making to novel writing and everything in between.
I thought Wordsmith was a fantastic app. I even bought and paid for it. Originally I paid the 2.99 to own the app and all its features. Awhile later when things changed I paid 4.99 to own the app and all its features. Today when I went to use the app I discovered I have had a limit set on how many items I can save and that if I want to use all the features of the app that I have now paid for twice that I will need to pay a monthly subscription. I am very disappointed and will be looking for a new writing app

Hi, thanks for letting us know about this. This can occasionally happen in the app where it doesn't recognise that your membership has been renewed. All you need to do is restore purchases and the button to do this can be found in the "Help" section of the app. This should fix the problem but if you're having any more issues please let us know or feel free to get in touch with us on email via the app. Thanks - Nicole
I use it all the time now!
I’ve gone through quite a few different writing apps, and this is by far my favorite one. Something about it makes it very easy and calming to write; it’s very no-nonsense and yet has an attractive interface, which makes it easier to buckle down and just focus on writing. Since I’ve started using the app, my productivity has skyrocketed. I’m writing much more than I have in years, and I’m having a blast. I ended up getting the subscription after seeing how much the app has benefitted me. I do think the free version should be able to have more documents/projects, though. The free version caps at a measly six documents, which is very low. Even ten would go a long way in making it a bit more useful for those who can’t afford to pay. Of course, I know you guys do need money, so maybe there’s no helping it, but I just wanted to put that out there.
Still, fantastic app and I’m very happy I found it. Thank you for making this!
