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.

Simple and effective
I like this app. I wanted something to keep me accountable as I strive for a daily minimum word count. As far as that purpose, it’s a simple and effective way to keep tracking of my writing process. If the timer could be set to count down for a set amount of time with an alarm at the end, I’d have given it 5 stars. As it stands now, I start the timer on the app then switch over to the timer on my phone so I can time out twenty minute sprints.
I don't care that my manuscript word counts may change from what’s recorded in this app as I edit because my word processing program tracks words for me. I quickly ran through the twenty entries available in the free version so I decided to go ahead and upgrade to premium.
A note: the button I clicked in the app said the upgrade was $4.99 but it was actually processed at $2.99. For $3 this app is well worth it.
Very good, though not perfect
The bad news: The app crashes when I'm online. Since I use it offline, this isn't an issue for me.
This app has a number of nice features, such as a timer, which helps you track how many words per hour each session of writing is. The graphs and statistics summaries - which show you how you're doing over time - are also very useful, and the app's design is simple and attractive. You can export your stats as a CSV file.
The app hasn't been updated for a long time, but I've used it for several years now and am pleased with it. It's a shame that the app isn't updated regularly, because this is one of the better writing apps I've encountered.
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!
