  • Undeniable to my progression

    By jean salvatore
    No longer am I cast in painful procrastinating agony. I’m making headway’s on my books, and no longer fear that they’ll never be finished. I’m not in a position where I can just write non-stop all day like I wish. But the daily dose I get in between workouts or laying around helps me realize I don’t need to give all my time to make progress. Excited to see where this takes me. Def recommend it.
  • Great, but could be better!

    By MLP_Lover23
    Hello, Werdsmith team. I would have to say overall this app is great for inspiring authors/writers that want something to do in the literature world. This app has helped me gain my confidence in writing better, more detailed, stories. The thing that stands out from the rest, is the organization that it gives to the user. What I mean by this is, the fact that they divide your “Ideas/Thoughts” from your “Projects/ Stories.” I just love that! I also like how you can exchange a project into the “Ideas” category and vise versa. But, there is one thing that is holding me back from giving this app an five star rating. It’s the payment that comes along with it. Not, that adore writing short and sweet stories, I’m also a person who loves to write novels. But, the only way that could be possible is if I pay $4.17 for one year or $4.99 every month. Almost, like one of those annoying monthly fees that pop up in your mail box. I honestly, don’t like that. Now, I completely understand why the app has done this. To simply make money off of what they have done. To have access to such an app, is actually quite a privilege. So, I understand why they would have this as an option. Therefore, is beneficial towards the creators. But, may I ask? Is this option more beneficial towards the Werdsmith Team or towards the users who use this app? In my personal opinion, it’s more for the Team. Now, the price is decent and is actually quite cheap than some other apps that you have to pay for. But, I wish they would have more “free” options. Than, you-have-to-pay-to-get-this, sorta thing. Overall, I give this app a 4 star rating. I hope that more people see my opinion has my own. You don’t have to agree with it or disagree. Now, I know that this review may possibly hold you back in any way, but I would like for you to know, that this app is my favorite out of all 60+ apps I have on my iPhone. Yes, 60+ 😂 I hope that you readers take this into consideration. Also, if you’re a parent and our reading this, please oh please let your child have experience with this. Werdsmith is a wonderful and clever way to learn your writing skills and to build confidence up from that. I hope all of your readers have a great day/night! Thank you again, Werdsmith team!! -Love, Summer.
  • Excellent

    This app is by far my favorite writing app. I love how it keeps my random thoughts and ramblings separate from my actual works. It’s very convenient and simply arranged, and I use it all the time. I do have one complaint; whenever I hit the arrow at the top right of the screen to take me to the bottom, it doesn’t go all the way to the bottom of the page, and I end up having to scroll for a while (because I’ve written so much...). If this could be fixed, I’d love this app even more! Thanks.
  • Subscription stinks

    By Anna Hatake
    I love this app so much! It’s so great and creative. Only complaint: I wish that they would have a longer time limit for the other backgrounds. I love the night one!

    I just wrote a story about a girl named Liliana Marie Heart. It was an amazing story and I am so glad I got to spend the opportunity to get to do it on WerdSmith. This is an amazing app! I love writing stories! Now I am going to go make another story! Bye! Thanks for making the app!
  • Perfect outlet for writing.

    By Super awesome 🙌🏽
    I wouldn't say that I'm an aspiring writer, but I do love making stories about stupid things, and just getting out ideas that are crammed in my head. Its very easy to use. If your like me and just use it for fun every now and again, you wont even need any of the add on's. No subscription, no expanses for standard use. Its wonderful honestly. Get it! Its pretty good!
