Very good but not great.
on 15 June 2005
For designing and plotting it's great. It feels like it has been designed by a writer. I particularly like the ability to add icons to text that hot link - eg a note on a character name takes you to the character page.
But - occasionally it loses unsaved text as you move between tabs. Save often. And most annoyingly the time line function calendar isn't customisable, rendering it pretty much useless for fantasy and science fiction where calendars will have different structures.
Also there seems to be no way of giving feedback to the programmer or ask for support, just a link to the publishers who claim to have no contact with them. One can only assume they found it abandoned on their doorstep one day. Either that or they couldn't be arsed to help once they had my money.
If it combined its good features with the timeline/scene planning structure of Writer's Cafe and was more customisable it would be perfect.
Would-be writers should check out both but for £20-£30 you can't go wrong with either. I use both for different things.
