    Nice app

    This is a great app and just what i was looking for. Its easy to figure out, and while theres obviously not as many options as a program like microsoft office word, its good if what you really want to do is write. People should not give apps a low rating just because they havent used it yet but still want to write a review because that gives the wrong impression.

    Awesome App!

    This is a great app! I love to write, and it is perfect for me. It is a simple writing pad and you do not have to be connected to the internet to use it. You can also email the chapters you write to yourself, so you can then save you stories to your main computer. I write for fun and it was just the app I was looking for. Any person who likes to write on the go shpuld have this app.

    Great App

    I love this app. Its perfect for writing all my stories and I can jot down some notes in another "chapter" document. Haven't tried the web sync app b/c I don't have the web account, but I will definitely try the option out, despite what I've heard about the troubleshooting. The app is wonderful, an I love how you can go back and edit chapter titles just by holding down on the bullet point in front of the chapter on the menu page. You can even sort them into different categories by assigning each chapter a certain color. A great app for all writers!

    My Writing Spot

    I'm a writer, and this app was PERFECT. There was nothing else this app could do, only my writing all in one place. I love emailing it to myself, however, it is not a document. If you love to write, this app is perfect. It also has a dictionary- no mistakes here!

    Awesome!!!

    I luv this app!!! Im a fanfiction story writer and this is exactly what i need! I dont need the laptop now unless im modifying the documents in microsoft word. Now i dont need to bring notebooks in loong vacations. I could use this! However, i wish they have a microsoft office app thats cheap. Well, anyway, this is perfect for all writers!!! Especially if u need to write an essay for english or history class. Although i dont think the word count is accurate and how do u change the title? I wish they could put a spell check too. Everythings perfect except those...!

    Attention avid writers! Your dream has come true!

    This app is my favorite. As an 11 year old writer who is working towards her goal as becoming a perfessional author, this app is very helpful. You can type up your manuscript, look up words on demand and email the document to any email. I take my nook almost everywhere. And if I get an idea fir my next novel, I can count on this app. :)

    Question

    Does anyone know how to change the title of a document on here?

    Other than that I have to say, I really love this app. It gives me a chance to write wherever I go and when an idea pops into my head. The controls are simple and easy to use, and the dictionary and thesarus are very useful. I'd say this is money well spent.

    Best app ever

    You CAN delete your files. I've been reading through all the coments and al the negitive ones are fake. The stuff they complain about like not deleting your files its all fake some people just dont want other people to buy the app. Dont listen to the haters. This is an awsome app. Writing is my passion. And this is the best app that relates to word by microscoft. And all you haters out there if you dont hve something nice bout the app or a recomendation dont say it.

    An Excellent Writing app

    Are you the type to be struck by inspiration at any given moment? If so, then this is the app for you. It is easy to use, and the options to write in landscape as well as color code your documents are extremely useful. Another great feature is the word count for any nanowrimos out there. My personal favorite part, though, is the option to e mail your writing so it cam be worked on at an actual computer. I m so peased with it, I am having a hard time finding anything wrong with it.

    Its great!

    This is a great app for writers. Its nice to be able to write your stories and then email them off to yourself. Like most things it could use an upgrade of options. But in this day and age, its your new pen and paper!

    Love it!

    This app is AMAZING! This allows me to write wherever I want, without wasting paper or ink, and without fear of losing my work. I have been working on my novel for a long time, and now its finally coming to life. Its also great for poetry, character development, and even keeping a diary. One thing I'd love, however, is spell check. Otherwhise, five stars!

    Great! Very great!

    I have had this app for about a week and I have already logged 7 chapters, but not of one story. This app is great if you always forget your writing notebook somewhere and you have ro log that awesome idea. I use this in school when I can and I don't get told to put it away. The one thing I see that doesn't do anything is the button at the gottom with the three lines on it. Other than that, it is very user-friendly and will provide fantastic results.

    Love this app

    I use this app everyday and it's so useful to me and easy for me to write stories.

    As for the e-mail button, I hate its guts but I found a way out of it. If you're logged into your e-mail using the nook e-mail app, then all you have to do is send the document to an e-mail address and once it sends, it takes you back to the My Writing Spot app.

    Bad App

    This bad app ruined my writing. When I pressed my email icon, it went to my email and I couldn't get back to my writing. I had a fellow writing spot member look at it, and they couldnt figure it out. We tried everything. My writing is ruined, I wasted money and my only option is to delete this app and my writing and rebuy it.
