Useful, But Too Far Behind For Me

The organization on this app is very nice, it helps to see everything that I've written laid out in front of me. I write novels and while it helps with the organization it lacks some of the basic functions like Tab, Fonts, a lot of spellcheck functions, etc. It's really better for organizing homework, articles, etc. Not so much for fiction writers. I switched to Novel Writer and it suites my needs much more.

Improvements needed

The formatting of the text has far too little control. Tab does not work, so paragraphs are hard to separate. Fonts are not changeable and I much prefer working in Courier. On the plus side the groups and sections make outlining fairly easy. My suggestion is to make cards in one project available in another. I would like to have character notes as a project and accessible while constructing the story.

Great App, Missing some basic behaviors

Great app but Tab button support is a must for writers, at least those who are serious about writhing. It isn't a deal breaker but would be nice in an update.

Great writing App

Best writing app I've found so far. I like the export features and enjoy the way it organizes your writing into projects, groups, and sections. Not a 5 because I would like a little bit more in the area of customizable themes etc... but that's all purely cosmetic. Perfect for all the writing I need to do. Give it a try- it's totally worth it.

If I paid for an app, I would expect it to have more functionality than this. It's hardly better than Notepad - in some ways worse. I began writing my stories using Word and am looking for a means to manage the different stories and collect the different chapters, but there is no import functionality in this app. I can't even copy and paste!

Better, but big flaw

I just tried Novel Studio and was shocked at how much basic functionality is missing. This seemed to be an excellent replacement with more features and an even better and simpler design. Problem is, besides the export, I could not find a way to save a project outside the app (Novel Studio can save right to SkyDrive for added mental security). What if the app crashes? I would loose everything unless I constantly export my project. Almost a 4 out of 5.

Don't waste your money.

I cannot use this app. I looked for settings to begin writing and it doesn't exist. I should have read the reviews first. Micro soft you continue to amaze me with your lack of oversight. Time to buy an Apple.
