    Hello Werdsmith team, I would like to start this off to say, how this app has encouraged my love of writing into a passion. I am very glad I downloaded this app when I had the chance. Even though, I’ve had Werdsmith for less than a year, I still adore it. I used to not even know how to properly use a comma, semi colon, nor have a A in my English class. My favorite part of the whole set up would have to be, how you distinguish ideas and projects into separate categories. Love it! It’s to die for, therefore I am that type of person. 😂 Anyways, even though I did give you guys a five-star rating, I hope you wouldn’t mind if I made a suggestion. I know a heap load of apps have this nowadays, and was wondering if you could add an (a free) nighttime theme. That would help out a lot. I normally write later in afternoon when I have the chance and it’s almost blinding to look at a full out white screen. Now, I know you have different themes, but I don’t want to spend that type of money. I simply have the free version. I hope you guys take my commentary to consideration. Thank you, have a good day and or night. -Summer Werdsmith

    It’s my favorite app to write on but I wish you didn’t have to pay monthly to be able to have the additional features.
  • Fantastic!

    By Dr.Dremur
    I've had this app for a few years and spent hours and more to come just creating. But, Is there a way that can be added to drag and order your projects/ideas the way you want them. Sometimes when I go into one of them I accidentally type something and when I fix and go out of it, it moves to the top. I like them to be in a certain order so it causes me to update all of the ones after it so it can be in the right order again. Edit: I don't know if it's in the works or not but fixing the jump button. When I press it now it only jumps a bit down, it's not the size of my project because it happens with my smaller ones too.
  • Great App but comes with a bug

    By *Carrie*
    I’ve been using this app for months now and it has motivated me to start two writing projects, both are at about 35,000 words. I think it’s well worth $5 a month. I have noticed the larger my novels get the slower they are to load, but I suppose that’s to be expected. App occasionally crashes but it always saves what I have written and I’ve never lost any data. Here’s the bug I have: the arrow to “scroll to bottom” only takes me about 1/3 of the way down my novel, so I either have to scroll down manually, or jump to my most recent chapter to continue writing. I would like this to be fixed.
  • Ritual

    Is there a way to deactivate the ritual? Because I don’t have a writing ritual.

    I have used and been loyal to this app for years. It is far and away the best writing application I’ve found, and I am very grateful to have access to such a wonderful tool, whether I use it for drafting a novel or simply jotting quick ideas. However, I would like to suggest one edit to the app that would be extremely helpful. Currently, I have a 60,000-word draft in progress, and I’m working on edits. I would greatly appreciate a way to bookmark a spot in the text, so that after the app is closed, I can return to my place and not have to search and scroll in order to find it. Thank you very much!
