Well, what a swizz. Sometimes you see stuff on the internet that leaves you totally perplexed. No writer in the world - I mean published writer - works this way. We have so many of these write by numbers offerings and they nearly all fall over. $30 for an app that records a charater's name and a bit of vague stuff about chapters - really! However, I love the way this sneaks up on Scrivener and steals part of its shadow with the icon 'S'. Cheeky! Will it ever touch Scrivener, ha ha ha. What a joke. If you pass up on some real writng apps for this gabonza then you will forever regret it. At best, it might be the front end of some other app. Look at the recommendations other writers have put up for consideration and spend your money on one of them. This just silly.

Oh, and there is nothing about subplot in this app - wonder if the developer even knows what subplot is.


Perhaps the closes to this rubbish are Persona and Character Writer. Character writer is not on Macupdate but you can see it here - http://www.characterwriter.com/characterwriter/index.html
