About this app

Develop strong writing habits!

Auctor it's your daily companion for writing stories or creating and developing characters and their arc of change.

This app is ideal for both, profesional writers that are looking for a place to rest their ideas and organise themselves, or new writers that are looking for a place to get started (We've develop tons of guidelines to understand the type of characters, arcs, and the way to develop them).

The strong social component of the app will give you the chance to have your stories read & shared by friends and members of the community, while the character generator side of Auctor will help you to develop and fine tune your characters chronology and personality.

Continue developing the story and growing its characters to the point where your story becomes a fully immersive book.

I'm not a worm

It's fine for organizing your thoughts. But a lot of the wording doesn't quite flow so well which can make it slightly confusing to read. There are also a few glitches in the app such as the pictures disappearing after a while, which isn't the end of the world but still a little sad. I'd say it's pretty good other that though, and it's been fun thinking of different scenarios to help build up my characters. :)

It's a good app! I love the fact it offers up challenges and the like for you to really get into the mindset of the character. Though when I get alerts for new challenges they never seem to have shown up. The add photo feature in and of itself could use some work because when I go to choose the 'select from gallery' option it does nothing. Hopefully it's a work in progress. A few easily overlooked grammar issues as wellb but overall a wonderful app!

The app all together is entertaining. However it is much more of something to do rather than a story plotter. The app is useful when creating characters, scenarios, and giving ideas. A fault would be that there really is no area to write down the ideas. Not to mention that despite some of the pictures of the app, when actually looking at the challenges it doesn't allow me to participate them. The app is useful but just needs a little fixing. Great job so far.

You're the real great user, not just giving stars but sending useful feedback. Thanks Kylie! Quick comments: I will change pics for solid colors, it's more trendy and more compatible. I will add the idea's corner, it's a good idea! Challenges, make sure you have internet, since I use online services for that.
