    "Monospace is fine right up until they start charging you to access the only features that make it unique. You can get all these features with simple Google apps that also have the benefit of being easier to use across all your devices."

    "I don't actually like writing on a small device as opposed to my computer but I do like this for being able to edit/review my writing on the go. It syncs with the desktop version via Dropbox so I can do the main writing on my computer and still have an up-to-date draft on my phone all the time. It also automatically formats everything as I need it to so even when I am writing, I can focus on the writing instead of getting formatting details right on a small screen."
