Good potential, frustrating UI. I use it on mobile with a bluetooth keyboard, and every time the keyboard connects or disconnects, I get booted all the way back to the app's launch screen and have to navigate to where I was working before. The latest update put my project's multiple books out of order, and no amount of long-pressing or dragging is letting me reorder them. Incredibly aggravating. I also cannot find a way to download a backup of an entire book or project.

This app is absolutely amazing! Not only is it easy to plan out your story, but the sheer amount of features is absolutely shocking! From the timeline maker to the ability to make your characters IN THE APP, I love this app to death. However, for the character maker, I suggest making more hair options, as I have a male character with long hair , and most of the long hair options are more feminine than I'd like 😅. Other than that, this app gets a 10/5! 👍❤️❤️

This app has a lot of potential and I really like it. My only complaints thus far are the glitchiness when using the Notes function and some basic UI stuff. Other than that, it really is (or has the potential to be) one of the best free writing apps there is. I would definitely recommend, just be wary of glitches and not being able to use the Notes function.
