I like simple things, and this app is perfect for me. I don't like things that are too fussy and colorful, so this app is a perfect choice. The premium price is also very cheap so there is no problem, and I have not been blocked by any ads with free version so the experience is quite good. But I also hope you have new improvements with fonts and small tools to help with writing.

Love it! By far the easiest to use, no clutter or complicated settings. I'd like to see a better way to sort articles though. You can only do it by title or date, which sucks unless you only use numerics. If you name your chapters and edit them at different times, they're gonna get jumbled. Also, when previewing longer chapters, sometimes parts of sentences go missing. When you go into editing it reappears, so it's not actually gone, but it really throws you off when you're trying to proofread.

Hi, thank you for loving this app! :) And, sorry for the lacking sort functions and the bug. We will definitely add the function to sort articles manually. Recently, the bug you said where sentences go missing was reported. We will try to fix it as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you!

I like the simple concept. Like the one button brackets and double quotes. Don't need all the fancy formatting bells and whistles. If you add all of that stuff you end up with just another text editor. But without being able to search through what I've written, well... When they get its search functionality working I'll give it another shot. Right now I would call it a good idea that is incomplete. The good idea about it is keep it simple.
