Ratings and Reviews
Good, but no word count as in the old version
It's great to have this app back as Writeroom was my favorite distraction-free writing tools. While there are some strong features here, esp. the Dropbox support and wide choice of fonts, which most comparable apps don't have, I don't see a word count, which is a must-have in this space. Perhaps the developer could add this easily? (I can search for spaces in a document and get a close approximation of words in the returned number of matches, but that's a kludge, isn't it?) The old Writeroom just displayed the word count as you wrote -- so simple.
Anyway, keep up the good work.
Thanks for the response on the word count feature. The old Writeroom — most other similar apps just offer a word count feature live at the bottom (or top of the screen). Many NaNoWrMo and similar writers need word counts to manage their writing time. And of course journalists and bloggers need this feature.... On a 1,000 word document, I had to scroll all the way up, then swipe again. Perhaps there’s a way to just display the word count in the corner of the document like in the old version?
Developer Response ,
Thank You for supporting the app. Writemator support word count feature (open the file -> tap the name of file on top -> word count). Please let me know if you have any questions via email email@example.com
Writing a Book
This is my first experience writing a book with a stylus on a swipe keyboard, amd this is because I am increasingly unable to use a computer keyboard. This app has changed my writing proficiency tremendously. It is sophisticated yet simple. Easy to understand. Reliable. I tried other apps, and I experienced the loss of two chapters, over 25,000 words, and received no response from the developer. I'm aggression to mention the name. This app will make your writing experience so much more enjoyable for a small fee!
Sync and user experience issues
1. Dropbox sync no longer works reliably. The app sometimes syncs, sometimes not. It can require using the “Sync All Now” menu item, which I don’t recall ever needing to use with the original WriteRoom. It just worked.
2. The use of the native Files UI is a jarring user experience and redundant with respect to WriteRoom’s original, uncluttered file listing. I would rather turn it off or hide it entirely, but this doesn’t seem to be an option.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
