Wordly is the easiest way to manage your writing projects.
Simply start the timer when you begin writing, and stop the timer when you finish writing. Type in the number of words you have written during the session, and Wordly takes care of the rest.
Writing Journal will then save the data and take all the hassle out of keeping track of what you're writing.
There are loads of amazing stats to look at... For example:
- Your words per hour
- Words written today
- Words written this week
- Words written this month
- Hours logged today
- Hours logged this week
- Hours logged this month
Plus, you can visually see your writing trends by view the graphs.
Need to see your writing logs in Excel? In just two taps you can export all of your data in a .CSV file so that it can be viewed in Excel.

Change the way words are counted, please!
Needs a better way to count words; the new word total may not match your actual word total if you deleted some lines, since this app only adds your session totals to the base word count. This makes it a bit useless as a word count/progress tracker. Otherwise, the app looks good and has potential.
Update (July 13, 2016): Still doesn't work. Broke down and finally deleted it. The reinstall did no good. Still won't open. If I could give it a zero star I would.
Update (January 30, 2016): Still cannot use the app after 4 months. There have been no updates since November. Used to love this app and paid for full version. Would not recommend anymore. Emails have been ignored and no efforts seemed to have been made to fix the crashing problem many users are having.
Update (November 23, 2015) there has been another update. Now the app shows the title screen for a second and then crashes. My previous review still applies....
Previous review: Since the most recent update (in October 2015), the app no longer works. Bought the full version a long time ago and had about 5 novels' worth of data on there. Also missed out on tracking my NaNoWriMo progress. I have not tried to remove the app and download it again for fear of losing the data I have on there. I am hoping this will get fixed. However, I have already sent two emails to support and have received no response as of yet.
Great little app
This is easy to use, and with the one time “premium” fee, I can keep track of multiple writing projects. Definitely keeps me motivated!
Only thing I’m not a huge fan of (and this is literally picking at details), is the requirement of adding time when manually adding words. Sometimes I am doing a combination of researching and writing, so I don’t time myself. It’s more me being neurotic than anything wrong with the app.
Either way, I am so glad I came across this!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
