  • Great writing app.

    By egreusch
    This is a good app that I have been using since I first heard about it. I only wish it had a search feature to search on individual lists or books put on it. Other than that it is a very good book writing app.
  • Crashes incessantly.

    By bat-daddy
    It's good, but it crashes a lot. Needs some optimization. I haven't been able to figure out the source of the crashes, but I do know that it possibly happens more often on documents that are formatted (using werdsmith's bold / italics functions) or exceed a 40,000 word count. The crashes sometimes erase large sections of work I had done. Tedious but it is a good app otherwise. EDIT 2/16/17: I’ve been a fan of this app for several months now. But just recently it has begun crashing so much, and randomly deleting huge chunks of process (2,000 words and counting!) that I simply just can’t use it anymore. It was good while it lasted, but few if any updates have solved or addressed this major problem, and it is no longer useful to keep using this app.
  • Awful.

    By Adgjtvhybt
    It's no better than writing in your notes app. $5 a month just to use this app to it's full extent is just ridiculous. I'd rather carry around my old 20lb type writer than spend $60 a year just to do something that's always been free. You can use bold/italics/underlines in your notes. I've been doing that for years and sadly, I've yet to find a good writing app. Besides, even if you do decide to use it without "upgrading", it will lag. Don't even bother.
  • Favorite writing app!

    By Boowolf21
    I've had this app for about two years now and absolutely love it. Being able to put down ideas easily without having to bring out the notebook and pen is great. I think I will decide to pay the $4.99 a month because it's worth it, Microsoft word is now making you pay for your work and that is just not fair to me personally and it's cheaper for this route. Love the app and will sure keep using it for more years to come! Update: I still stand by my review and love this app so much! The only criticism I would give is the error of writing on a laptop and app, it doesn’t update as quickly as I’d like. I wish somehow it would update and save every word written as I go on laptop and app together. But other then that, it’s the best app for writing out there.

    A lot of imagination comes from this, it is helpful for planning out essays and stories,though you need to pay to have unlimited space.KEEP WRITING WRITERS!👍🏻

    By AmazingDanosuar

  • The Best Writing App

    By Art❤️er
    Before I found Werdsmith, I had downloaded many, many writing apps for my phone and they all too complicated, you had to pay for it, or it just didn’t work I’m general. However, this app is amazing! I love how you can set a reminder to write, and also make it so you have to put in your Touch ID or Password to get in so no one else can see your books. Great app, definitely would recommend to all age writers, or just people who feel like typing random things, not in the notes app.
  • Great App

    By Jr luis
    I started writing a fiction book and found this app great for writing on the go. Needs some updating but works good.
  • Great app however...

    By Lexii26
    I really love this app. I’m able to see which stories are which because of the title option. But I do not like the 10 story limit. It’s inconvenient. I understand you want to make a profit but at the same time, I’m not paying $5.99 a month for this (especially when I’m paying for data and applied music already). Please review and come up with a different approach. Maybe take the limit away with .99 a month. And since I hit my limit, I will be saving my work and uninstalling this app.
