Story Planner for Writers Reviews


Can I share and edit over the could?  JFinnemanArt  5 star

I LOVE THIS APP. I’m working with a partner who would like to edit what we have from her iPad. Can I share over the cloud and can she edit from her side as well, or is it not possible to open a sent file within the app?


Super efficient!  Algrid🧩  5 star

This app is amazing. It is very helpful for me to organize my stories in an easy way. It allows me to organize my places, characters and plots. I only wish that we can add multiple plots to a scene. Other than that, I recommend this app to all writers!


This app is pretty good! But some thoughts for improvement...  KiwiKamikaze  4 star

So, I have found the app to be very useful. I like a lot of the features it has, particularly with creating plots with different colors and the statistics. I also love the drag and drop feature for rearranging scenes. In general, this app has a lot of good ideas. However, I think there are a few features that would really make this app a five for me. -When I am adding a scene card, I notice that unless I click the down arrow at the bottom left corner of the interface, I can’t scroll. I’ve found that exceedingly frustrating. -It would be really nice if the “Acts” were collapsable. I have a lot of scenes per act, since I’m using this for story outlining. So, it’d making the interface easier to use if this was a feature. -Along the same lines as the above, I think it’d be nice if I could choose different layouts for the scene cards. For instance, if there was a compact view where you only see the scene titles. Or a view where you could see the scene cards as cards in along a timeline. I’ve just found myself scrolling and scrolling to find what I’m looking for. When you have a lot of scene cards, it gets cumbersome to rearrange them when you are scrolling and scrolling just to find them. I hope your team will consider some improvements!


The app keeps crashing  bridgec123  1 star

I can’t even open the app on my iPhone or on my laptop and it’s already sent a report that detailed what happened. However, they have not taken any steps to fix it. Until it starts working again, this app is a waste of money.


Jury’s still out...  SpOoNMaN LIVE  2 star

I started using the app and found it helpful. Unfortunately I’ve run into a very buggy problem. When selecting characters to add into a scene, selecting one will also select another not in the scene. When I deselect the character not in the scene, it deselects the character I wanted to add to the scene.


Great tool  Project1717  5 star

Great for keeping track of ideas and for adding to current projects when you don’t have time to whip out your laptop. Sync feature really helpful!

Abeee Froman

Lost Hours of Work  Abeee Froman  2 star

I had hours worth of work on my project that was randomly lost during a back up. I opened the project and everything was set back to the “Master Cat” default story. I was able to save over a previous back up, but I lost an entire days work. I might continue using the app and send it to myself daily, but this is unacceptable with an app that costs money. It’s a shame because this app initially felt like a blessing. Unfortunately it was too good to be true.


Come on...  Prisc8lla  2 star

I got this app believing that it would be even more detailed than A Novel Idea. That was a very good app, and it was free. Nope. Not even close. I’m disappointed.


Great app for writers  SeoulLight  5 star

Great app! Easy to use and practical for quick writing and planning. Some suggestions: Would love a time line option, where you could just have dates and important events that could be in linear form and moved around easily. Maybe a character relationship map? Also for fantasy writers out there, a 'definition' tab for roles or words made up to reference back to. Look forward to using this app in the future!


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.

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.

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.

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.


A worthwhile product for any storyteller.  GsidesFinest  4 star

The only review I feel can appropriately describe my opinion on Story Planner would be to say that, as a screenwriter by trade, I’ve now had two screenplays optioned that were outlined completely using this app.


10/10  ScarletNight13  5 star

Must use!

Charlotte Dequina

Waste of $3.99  Charlotte Dequina  2 star

I want a a refund on "Story Planner" because you can't use another tab besides "Project"


It works  noodlebot27  5 star

Simple, easy to use and intuitive enough for someone like me who simply wishes to organize his thoughts. Thank you dev, love this app.


Great for Starting Ideas  savagebeast10  5 star

Writing screenplays it is nice to have simple way to layout elements. Use it on my phone and iPad then bring the ideas and elements together on my desktop Mac. Very useful. Recommended.


Excellent, with room for improvement  RaeRae912  4 star

Love all it has, just wish I could Customize fields!


A great little story planner.  123AppleSucks  5 star

Handy. Reliable. Works as advertised. Could it use a few more tabs for terms, or a name generator? Could. But honestly, this does all I need. I'm currently outlining my new play and a sci-fi thriller using this fine app. Well done.


Absolutely Love It!  Super.darkflower.101  5 star

I love this app, it's wonderful for when I'm on the bus or on a long car ride. The fact that I'm able to assign pictures to my characters is very useful. I usually write on my laptop so this is perfect because I don't have to switch between tabs constantly. This is the best novel planning app I've ever used.


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.
