I like all of the options for writing . All of the fonts and background images that are available make it quite fun . Though the ads feel pretty evasive . There's got to be a better way to advertise . Having a full commercial pop up while you might be in the middle of your thoughts is very distracting , and counter productive if you like writing stories .

Trash Can Problem

I’ve been using this app for years and I’ve been trying to open up the trash can recently to retrieve some files but it keeps crashing. And it doesn’t let me delete the “emergency” file that pops up every time I open it. Please, please fix this. I want to back up all my work! Otherwise, this app is pretty goodZ

Great for aspiring writers and poets

(This review was written off of the trial version.)

This app caught my eye after I realized that it was a free "note-taking" app. With different fonts, font sizes, backgrounds, and paper "types" this app can not only give you a quick and easy way to write, but can give you the opportunity to write in a space that is all your own. With an interesting and unique auto-save feature (that seems to activate when an author goes quiet for a few minutes), it makes it easier to not fret about documents being lost. Not only can one create new files, but they can create folders to keep up with all their work as well. This is a great feature for those who plan on using this app for more than the average grocery list. Do you need the documents that you typed up in a different location and fast? Easy! Send that document as an e-mail or a PDF file with a few simple taps of the screen. Although I have yet to purchase the full version yet, I am highly planning on it. I don't plan to let such an amazingly useful app go to waste.
