  • Disappointment

    By EarlDopler
    I paid money for this. And now I can't even paste in text from a different app. Ripoff.
  • It has a word limit!

    By chantyth
    At first, I loved it. I’ve wrote a ton of stuff with it. But it has a word limit which I didn’t know until I got a good chapter or two into my story and it wants me to pay for more word space. Not happening. That’s stupid.
  • Not great. Not at all.

    By that weird crazy artist
    So...I’m an aspiring writer with a obsessive passion for writing. When I saw the app for the first time I nearly shrieked in joy because of how it looked great, sounded awesome, then, I read the reviews. They were extremely critical, (I read (almost)every single one), and I thought, “it can’t be that bad.” I installed the app, and with slight hope, it asked me if I wanted to write a novel, I clicked it, and it said I have to pay for it, and then I immediately uninstalled it because of pay. Not all people can pay for apps, me for example, so you’re losing people that way. We already spend too much on rent and what not so, don’t make us pay for a stupid application.
  • I love it, but it is slightly hard to use

    By zzz97
    I have a large project saved in Werdsmith on my broken phone. I want to retrieve that project which is trapped in my phone. Please please, find a way to save the data out through your app.
  • I love writing story’s!!!

    By CrazyCatGirl85
    I like this app a lot! I can write lots of cool story’s! Some story’s I wrote are, The Golden Kitten, It’s All Okay, and other poems! This is a great way to start writing books! Their is nothing I don’t like about this because it’s so awesome! You NEED to get it!
  • Love this app a lot

    By kamillelikestoast
    Great app since no other mobile apps work properly. I do however miss the like arrow down feature to throw you to the end of the doc since the last update. Bring it baaaaack.
  • 5 stars without the subscription

    By Aughto Neurotic
    This app is hands down the best writing app out there. The ease of creating new ideas or projects is great! I’ve had the app for several years now and find it my go to for notes, short story’s, and novel chapters. But. I’ve run into the word limit now, bringing the five stars to three. I get it, great apps need to make money in order to continue support, but $50 a year subscription is pretty steep for my purposes; which don’t include sharing with the community or writing in a fancier script. I wouldn’t mind paying $10.99 a year (one-time payment per year) or even .99 per month, but over $4.00 per month is a bit much.
  • My favorite writing app!

    By Wattpadgirl05
    I use a lot of apps for my writing, and this is my all time favorite. Without even subscribing to premium, you can add a title, bold, italic, etc. You can set writing goals, and you can see how long it takes to read your writing. Thank you, Werdsmith, for creating my favorite writing app of all time
  • Great organizational help

    By Lenebeany
    I love Werdsmith for the easy way I can organize my lists, thoughts, outlines, schedules, and rough draft writing. It’s not fancy but really functional for my way of organizing.
  • Great for writing on mobile!

    By MuchMajesticDoge
    I personally write in my free time and this app allows me to organize my writing. The formatting is odd, however. In order to italicize, for example, you must put stars around the words you wish to italicize, which doesn’t benefit you if you are going to transfer this writing into other apps or into a word document. Also, I miss the button with the arrow pointing downwards that would take the writer to the last word they typed. Other than that, I love writing on this app because it is built for mobile use. In comparison, typing on Microsoft Word is much less convenient. The formatting can improve and I’d like the little arrow back!
