Could not open. Waste of money and time. Very frustrating to have high hopes for an app and then realize that it is useless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst writing app ever!!!!! February 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
I recently bought this app thinking that it might be a useful reference guide. Wrong!! This app is only useful as an example of how NOT to write. The examples used contradict each other, there are run-on sentences and misspelled words. Please do not buy this app, especially if you are a student! The person who wrote the articles has no idea how to write properly, no understanding of the proper use of the English language, and no obvious experience with editing. Only one star because I could not give zero stars. You do not have to be an English major to know that punctuation is important, and that you should not use the word "stuff" to explain your ideas. I want my money back!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars crap May 4, 2013

I hate it. Doesn't help you at all. Don't want to write fiction. Need an app that can help you organize your thoughts like catch.com.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it August 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is little more than a collection of notes that anyone with even basic writing would know or imagine. Don't waste your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible August 1, 2013
By Erin
Verified Purchase
This app is absolutely horrible and not worth paying for. I thought this would be helpful but it's not. If this app was free(which it should be) then I wouldn't be nearly as mad as I am now.

This app is crap. It wouldn't even load, all it did was freeze up. Don't waise your money. Its a buck you could be spending on an app that works.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I'd hoped it would be.
This app was okay, but it wasn't what I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong, it's helpful but I could have easily looked up the same advice this app offers up on the interent.
