5.0 out of 5 stars great for on the go writers. 11 Jun 2012

I love this app. The character prompts are fun and outside of the box. The User can prompt by physical appearance, role, income, worst habit, questions, and many more.
It is great to use on my kindle while I am out and about or just trying to come up with a new character for my stories. I would recommend to novices, students, and professional creatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great app for authors! 4 April 2013

This app has really helped with character development and once you create a character you can email it to yourself from your kindle. It generates random information such as name, age, description, occupation, special trait, role in the story, etc. It also randomly generates questions to help give the character personality. You can edit any part if there are certain aspects you know you want and let it do the rest randomly. It's also great for generating quick random background people helping to make your fictional world seem more real. I love this app and you should get it if you are a writer.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 5 Jan 2014
By me - Published on

I am writing a comic, and thought this would a great way to make characters. More or less it's a game, you don't make a character, you keep clicking the button until something comes up, but there is always something wrong. It's a waste of money, I thought i was making characters, not choosing. It's not worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, functional, entertaining 5 Aug 2013
By Brian K. Miller - Published on

This is a fascinating little app. It generates a random character profile and offers several different ways to think about a character including physical characteristics, personality twist, and social characteristics. Tapping the screen changes everything, giving you an entirely new character to think about. Creating complex characters is one of the cornerstones of good writing, and it is also one of the most demanding. This little app simplifies the process immeasurably. Naturally it does not generate a complete character portrait, that would be impossible. It does however provide an almost endless supply of starting points and more often than not, a starting point is the only prompt a writer needs.
