    Pros: 

    Get out of your head and freely write as thoughts come Simple yet beautiful design

    Cons: 

    Zero.

    In the past month, I've been taking 5 minutes out of my morning to write using The Most Dangerous Writing App. It's been an incredibly freeing experience. Previously, I'd get stuck on one word or thought that interrupted my entire writing flow. Now, I push through because otherwise I lose it all. This app has become a bit of an addiction for me. My only suggestion to the makers is to add an option to be given a writing prompt to reflect upon. Often, I search for my own before but it'd be amazing to have that within the app.

    Pros: 

    Straight to the point. Does what it says it does.

    Cons: 

    None. Really.

    I mainly write technical articles. I'll never use this to write a technical article and I don't recommend it to anyone writing anything serious.

    I use this app whenever I'm replying to hate comments on Youtube. I never manage to finish writing my comments. And this is good. Great product.

Best URL ever. This like a web-based version of the heartless Flowstate.

@rrhoover Which in turn is a heartless app-based version of the questionably designed but beautifully named "Write or Die" :)

@rrhoover both this and Flowstate are awesome! I just need something like this. These can be especially useful while writing morning pages (http://juliacameronlive.com/basi...) where you should not stop and think, just write.

Pretty good way to start your day. This is good for 'morning pages', without the pressure of writing something that can be 'saved for later'. Just write, and use the ideas you get to write later in the day. Cool!

@rohan_barman @eonpilot I just tried it and what I really liked about it is the visible countdown. I would love to just have the countdown that really forces me to finish my writing – without losing my work after a few seconds, since I need to do quite a bit of research between writing the paragraphs.

@rohan_barman it shouldn't be possible if you ask me. Or at least replace it with something risky like: up up down down left right left right b a. Only millennials will understand this ;)
