NatalaHe, 5 stars:
Definitely the go to app for a lot of little details and sometimes just for fun. I would recommend for every type of writer out there.
Never thought I'd rate five stars for a group of lists, but this is so well done that its one of my new favorite apps. This thing is so useful, easy to use, helpful, and practical that it has become my new go to writing app. Well done on this one!
