Most functions don't work at all. A waste of money, and they want more!
on 1 January 2015
At first spell check didn't work, but after an upgrade, instead of not working when I click the buttons some say 'you need to pay for this feature. It costs £6+ (these vary but all seem around the £6 mark). This was not stated when we bought this, (it was on offer when we purchased) and the spell check function was clearly visible - that is the main reason we choose it!
Yet they advertise the Pro as being different to the free version because it has fonts and more!
Here is a list of the ones it now says I have to pay for to use;
1. spell check
2. fonts - the list is there, but choosing one, it does not change. we only have 1 font to use
other features that don't work;
3. page colour
4. page number
5. highlighting is only yellow, (this may be correct for this programme, but one colour only seems very unusual, to say nothing of pretty useless)
7. font colour
11. section breaks
13. one, two page views etc - if you choose two page view this does NOT return to one page. I tried for about 1 hour, but had to throw the document away
14. language - the list is there, but choosing one, it does not change and we write in 2 languages
also while working many pages or parts or pages disappear. they return later, but we can't figure out what makes them come back. Sometimes they are missing for minutes, others for hours.
my partner and I bought this app at the same time and we both have the same problems.
There may be more features that do not work, but because we stopped using this we haven't found them yet.
I have contacted Amazon about this as the supplier does not seem to bother about fixing these or replying. I am still waiting for an answer.
Update 20th Feb 2015
They have just issued an update and now fonts, italics, bullets and numbering now work, symbols has disappeared unless I spend £6.99 to buy them back!
Also no longer working on both my partner's and my tablet:
At first I only checked the things that hadn't worked before, but I have now discovered that things that did work, now don't!!!!
The freehand drawing no longer works! It was one of the few things that worked fine before the update
Font colour is also missing now
underline colour - doesn't work
highlight colour in 2 places doesn't work. there is a choice of colour, but it only works with yellow
strike through- doesn't work
double strike through - doesn't work
outline - doesn't work
emboss - doesn't work
engrave - doesn't work
text colour - doesn't work
text background - doesn't work
line thickness - doesn't work
line style - doesn't work
shape fill - doesn't work
text wrap - doesn't work
position - doesn't work
table - doesn't work
orientation - doesn't work
format painter - doesn't work
and more I am sure. I haven't used this much, but I give up.
Really, this is worse than before the upgrade
Update April 2015
After waiting nearly 6 months from the time I bought this, they have finally admitted this app has problems and are 'going to work on it'. When this will happen and what the results will be is yet to be seen!
Update August 2015
I give up! I worked with Amazon and the makers for months and months to try and get this working, but when I paid for the symbols extra, which I needed and Amazon asked me to buy - they provided the funds (this was supposed to be free with my version!!!!!!!!!!), there IS NO SUCH ITEM. I can't believe this is allowed!
