3.0 out of 5 starsMy 3 star it's OK could be your 5 star WOW.

For a "pay for it" app, this one is ok. I've had a few 'writing' apps that are worse than garbage and cost as much. I do like lists though. Just my OCD I suppose. Character names, Here's a thought... Non-human characters... "acid rain" is the top of the list. Doesn't pop to mind as a character but if you're writing a certain kind of story, this could be your villain, and it IS non-human. Body Type list, Archaic Occupations... My point is, it does have quite a few lists. Your story might need a dance style for your romantic encounter. There's a dance style list. (I've never heard of most of them.). An angstom is a unit of one ten-billionth of a meter. There's a unit of measurement list...
I would probably like it more if I thought to use it more. I did go to it for names at one point, but it really doesn't compare to easily available web sites or writing software for names, where I ultimately went. But, hey... help me 60 trillion angstroms more and I'll raise the rating to 5 stars! It is just ok for me.
For the right writer, this could be a godsend. I don't know many writers who are using their phones or tablets to do any serious writing... where the app happens to be handy, but they're charging for it. Makers must believe there is a demand for it. I just had to spend expiring points or lose them and this was much better than a dictionary for my money.
3.0 out of 5 starsCould be better but still really awesome

Useful for writers, quick info, I wish if gave more info on the stuff listed i.e. in the fantasy/myths list I wish it would explain the mythical creatures like where the myth originates, what the creature is, etc. It only gives the name of the creature. It's like that for all the lists. Still really cool but....missing a lot.
