Buggy Update 9-12-16th: Still buggy, worse than before after update. App crashes when I try to open any file. Please fix ASAP, I paid for this. Original Review: Nice, clean app that I was looking forward to using but it's too buggy to be functionable. I can't even see what I'm typing and the app adds unwanted punctuation. Also, randomly switches to spanish language and save files disappear. Contacted the developer and was told there will be an update. Still waiting. Please fix!
Okay, really useful app, but going crazy due to some shortfalls. 1) drag to resequence scene 2) Chronology 3) after edit don't always go to start - a serious pain 4) version sync to cloud / multi device capability 5) in line add of new locations and characters from scene edit. 6) summary scene view without description. Fix that lot and she's a winner MF
Like but wouldn't reccomend I like this app and it's super helpful for planning and organization or my novel/comic ideas but... there isn't a view only option... if I want to read through what I've already written I have to go about as if I was editing. I can't just swipe through and read everything properly, which should be a big part of a planner app. That is a big annoyance to me, but for the price I stil like it.
Great app but an outdated icon and interface keeps it from being truly eye catching among all of the modern material design apps. Would love to see it revamped with a fresher style.
So far so good, but Any chance a dev can make it possible to rearrange cards? Unless I'm missing how to, I can't organize card order for anything once they're created. I have a system, and sometimes things change or don't flow in order- would be great if I could move things around during development. :)
As far as it goes this app is nicely done and certainly a reasonable price. The element that strikes me as strange is the lack of anywhere to actually write your story. From my perspective it would be better to be able to plan and write your story within the same app, rather than switch back and forth between two pieces of software. Improved support for syncing would be helpful and it'd be great to be able to fire this up in Windows too so that you could write on your mobile, sync and then open it up in Windows or a Chromebook to get into the meatier parts. As of 1st Sept 2016 I also lost a substantial amount of text I'd written in the Notes field of a scene after an error popped up saying Story Planner was not responding. I'm not sure if I'd hit the limit of text for that field and it just crashed or if it was coincidental. However it's a vulnerability as there's no clear way to save your work on a regular basis or control over it - you just exit the are you're writing in and it's saved. That doesn't have a great user feel (it should save automatically but make it clear it's done so). I do hope they continue to develop the app and create further apps as well.
Minor bug fixes.
