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.

It seems good so far. Though I have noticed one problem. Not sure if its my phone or the app itself but one time I saved a character while doing notes so that I could make sure I spelt a name right and when I tried to continue doing the notes I was unable to go to another line and it all tried to stay on one line. Otherwise it seems good.

The app itself is a fantastic idea. Its one and only flaw is its poor management. The weekly writing challenge is what I downloaded the app for. I used to have it over a year ago, but I deleted the app due to the poor management. The challenge is never updated, and it leaves the app nearly dead. You can use the app for writing prompts, writing on mobile, and character sheets. The character sheets and prompt are good, but I would not recommend their writing features. Great app sorry management

It's a pretty promising, enjoyable app, but I believe there should be a few tweaks here and there. For one, the guides are always laggy when I scroll through them. Some sentences flow awkwardly in the character page due to the formatting, so I believe that there should be a better guide on how we fill in certain information. I'd like to suggest an option to delete characters/projects. It gets frustrating when I want to scrap something and have no clean way of doing it. EDIT: Problems are fixed!
