Story Planner for Writers Reviews


Simple Outliner also Teaches Writing  StCorbiniansBear  5 star

This is not a full-fledged novel-writing tool like Scrivener. What it is is a handy, easy-to-use tool for scenes, chapters, settings, and characters. Not only that, but don’t miss the definitions that form a nice bag of writing instruction. The other apps are okay for exercising your writing muscles if your creativity needs a jog.


My fave app  sven8996  5 star

Helps organize But its starting to foreclose automatically after tapping the app to open on iPad.

Good but limited  3 star

I like how I can see the order of the scenes according to acts. I wish the statistics page was more complete. Statistics may not be the name for what I want. Maybe I want a table seeing where each scene and character appear.

First Enchanter

Useful and efficient  First Enchanter  4 star

I’m always writing and storyboarding but I don’t really have a place to keep it all. This app was perfect for organizing and maintaining all my characters and plot lines. Only criticisms are that it randomly closes- which isn’t too bad because it keeps everything saved constantly and that sometimes it’s hard to back out of an area I’m typing in to go to another area. Even so, I highly recommend this app to writers.

NorCal Doug

Good!  NorCal Doug  3 star

Good starter to get organized.


A must-have for writers!  devinitlee  5 star

I adore this app; it’s one of the best mobile tools for writers that I’ve ever used. The only drawback is there’s no customizing fields, so you’re limited to the standard format. Maybe in a future update, customization will be an option? Overall, still a wonderful creation.


Afraid to trust it  Crisses  1 star

When I purchased this app, I added a new different-named project on each device (iPad pro and iPhone), and I turned on sync, and lost the tutorial project and one of the other projects and they never came back. Though there have been updates since, I'm afraid that sync errors will delete my projects. I don’t know how to get the sample project back either. This is a deal-breaker and there should be protections in the sync facilities to stop this from happening.


Great App  A_Jenskee  5 star

I’ve been looking like an app like this for a long time since A Novel Idea was taken down. While the app is great, one suggestion I have would be the ability to organize character functions better. As an example, every character under “protagonist” would all be grouped together. You should also be able to just type in the character function rather than choosing. It could help organizing groups, like having all people of team “A” and people of team “B” all under one file or headliner. Beyond hat, great app and definitely would recommend it to others.


Great App, Faulty iCloud  Bondrewd623  3 star

I love this app, it gets me organized really well for my story but the main problem here is the iCloud sync. For some reason the app doesn’t transfer the contents of the story correctly (for example, only the plot, location, characters would be transferred while the scenes are not). Is there a way to fix this? I’ll change the review to 5 stars if it is fixed as this problem is glaring.


Great app  Monk3yhead  5 star

I use bought this when my wife brought it to my attention. So far, I love it. I do think it would be better if there was a place to have maps and/or other pics. Also, if there was a way to have it sync iPhone/iPad so I can continue with writing no matter what device I have with me.

Lord Lightning

But it will not import text  Lord Lightning  4 star

Excellent app for all its limitations in the real world of story telling. Until it imports text it will never be properly or fully functional for real writing.


Please fix  ReviewBurger  4 star

Hi, I’m loving it a lot s far. Can we please fix the pictures being squashed please? For pictures pod characters; it captures a stranding rectangle of the picture and squashes it into a square.

Ian Derek Bee

When is the Mac version out?  Ian Derek Bee  5 star

Your website says this is now for Mac, yet it isn't... when will it be ready? I have changed this to five stars. It is actually surprisingly good! Not much documentation, but if you actually have a story, and load it in, and learn to observe and fiddle a little bit, it all becomes quite clear. Seamless across my IOS devices, now I want it on my Macs (hurry up guys!). I'm also hoping we get a print function on the desktop version, with tailored fields, then you can pin up your road map. Oh... did I mention I am agog for the Mac version...?


Surprisingly a very useful writing tool.  Hakuto579  4 star

Though I am not usually a long term planner of my works, I have found that this is really good for on the go. Simple platform but with enough to make you think more about hat your writing. Very happy! 😄


My Saver!  hudsonrowley  5 star

This App has helped me so much in planning my story! I will DEFINITELY use it in the future! It’s a 5/5 rating for me! What are you waiting for? Stop looking at the reviews and get this yourself!


Problematic, needs work on layout.  DarkScribe  3 star

I use my phone and iPad in landscape mode when writing but this seems to have little thought applied to anything but portrait orientation. My biggest problem is that my network monitor informs me that both my iPhone & iPad are "phoning home" & sending data when I open the app on our network. Why? Synching via iCloud or similar I can understand and accept, but having private data passing through an unknown and undeclared "secret" third party is not something I am prepared to accept. I will not be trusting or using the app until this is explained. So, please explain? Happy to rate five stars and edit the review once the security concerns are addressed.

Sharni Cain

Great tool  Sharni Cain  5 star

I stumbled across this app. Love it. It is so easy when I'm on the go and have a story idea. Helps me break it down and send through to scrivener.

All about apps

Ok, but...  All about apps  2 star

I like the format, but the functionality leaves a lot to be desired. When tapping on a section, bringing the notepad up, it shifts the section to where you can't write in it. It takes several goes to get there. Frustrating. But again, I do like the format.


Great for on-the-go writing  Chinnup  5 star

I prefer a laptop or desktop for substantive writing, but this app is fantastic for getting fundamental ideas logged quickly! This app keeps characters and plot arcs organized and is very simple to use. Great job! I really enjoy it.


Love It  RevelationPark  5 star

Very useful, would not be without it.


Does what I needed  ripship  5 star

I appreciate having all my stories and notes in one place, and exportable. Just what I wanted.

Rachael Claire

Love it!  Rachael Claire  5 star

I'm revising a novel based on John Truby's techniques in "The Anatomy Of Story" and this app is the perfect tool for this kind of structural analysis. My only comment would be to make it possible to customize the various field names. Thanks!!


Cool  comicbookchris1979  5 star



Story Planner ROX!!  Stuntmanjae  5 star

Such a convenient app. It really help me connect the dots in my writing.


It's ok  Notenoughinfo  3 star

So it functions as a way to keep your thoughts in order. I also wish that there was an additional section where you can put 'terms' (ex. other races, made up words, etc) I find it a bit cumbersome to write out scenes with this format; I'm probably just too lazy I dislike that you can't just scroll down when you are finished with the current info box to the next Overall, it could be smoother but it functions


Excellent to plan a story  Mikemarinovic  3 star

Really good to order and plan a story, but it doesn't work well the synchronization.


Excellent  Leifutler  5 star

Great organizational tools, easy interface, and being able to work on my iPad and switch to my phone without losing anything. On top of great performance, great potential for more! Thank you!!


Hmmmm  auxarcs  2 star

Loved this when i first got it. Very useful. But it has wiped out everything i had in it, every story on the list, TWICE! I re-did it all plus new stuff after the first loss but i couldnt get the back up to work and when it updated everything was lost. Again! Make sure to have SEPARATE back up files not linked to this app.
