  • Easy, Great App for Writers!

    By TalesThatMustBeTold
    Hello Werdsmith team, Let me start by saying thank you for creating this app for writers. I have been trying many different apps to find the right fit and I always ended up deleting them. Writers, by nature, are fickle beings and I am no exception. It is hard as a writer to feel comfortable with and to trust an app that carries their precious world inside. Werdsmith was truly a god-sent! It really did not take me long to become a member. For all of the perks, I have only one complaint and I am sure you know of this issue already: the novel word count and the app shutting down to the home screen. It honestly does not bother me as much as I thought it would. But that could be the fact that I don’t have to worry about losing a significant amount of work that I had done. I only lose about six words. I will say that the app constantly shutting down and having to find my place again does disrupt the “flow.” Other than that, I would highly recommend this app to all with stories to tell. Thank you for your time!
  • The pages

    By music meldy
    Don’t get me wrong I love this app but why do I have to buy more pages it’s just not fair or cool . Please change this
  • I love it so much

    By Angel pumpkin
    Werdsmith really helps me make sure that my writing is spot on. I don’t have to pay anything, and I love that. Definitely download werdsmith if you like to write. You won’t regret it !!!
  • I want to love it

    By Recordface
    I enjoy so many of the options, unfortunately it is a moot point because I toggle between writing on an iPad and an iPhone, and sometimes it takes hours, if not multiple days for the writing to update or refresh on the other device. Is there a way to get the writing to refresh on my iPad or iPhone quickly when I switch from one to the other? Sometimes I will write on my iphone at the coffee shop and switch to my tablet at home and none of the iPhone writing shows up. I try rebooting my device, reloading the app, etc, and sometimes it takes actual days.
  • Great writing app

    By BlueCrystalRoses
    The app is so great. They have many formats you can use when you start writing something and the app is also really easy to use! I like using the reminder thing so when I need to write it tells me!
  • Amazing app

    By Jones.Author95
    I have used this app off and on since 2013. It is by far my favorite word processing app. It is easy to use and an excellent tool for National Novel Writing Month. I only wish it was also available on Android devices.
  • A game-changer, BUT

    By mattlom
    This app has increased my writing output exponentially! I like all the features and the simplicity. Now the but: there’s an error when I try to set-up an account, and the website certificate has expired. As of right now the only was I can export my writing is to email it to myself. Would love a developer to weigh on this...
  • Love it, but a minor issue

    By katysparty
    Dear Werdsmith, I just got this app, and I think it’s so, so great. It’s very easy to use, even without the paid version (which I will never get because it’s crazy expensive). I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in writing, or even anyone with a single idea. The only issue is, whenever I try to make an account, it says, ᴇʀʀᴏʀ. ᴛʜᴇʀᴇ ᴡᴀs ᴀ ᴘʀᴏʙʟᴇᴍ sɪɢɴɪɴɢ ʏᴏᴜ ᴜᴘ. ᴘʟᴇᴀsᴇ ᴛʀʏ ᴀɢᴀɪɴ ʟᴀᴛᴇʀ. This is pretty frustrating, as I want to be able to access everything I’ve written on multiple devices without copying and pasting a million times. Again, this is a great app. Just one problem. Thank you for reading.

    The best thing to type on! Unlike Word, you don’t have to sign in to write! So go and get this and write forever!
