I will remove the app 2 days after installing it. I think the idea behind the app is good and useful, but I think it needs more work from the developer. If I set myself a goal, say 40k words, I need to know when I will reach it at my writing pace. The app does the opposite: it forces me to set an end date and then tells me how many words I need to write each day. This approach may be useful for a minority, but I do not see the value behind it. The app needs to be triggered every day. It does not just record and run the stats. I have to start it every time.

I honestly love this completely. I like to write through NaNoWriMo for the most part and this helps so much with daily goals and keeping word count accurate. It just sits next to my document and records my progress. It helps that I can set my own goal and it gives so many stats and such. Honestly it works wonderfully. The only thing I don't like is when I write on a document and open it, close it after seeing how much needs to be done and going ahead to writing. When I'm finished I open it back up, it still records important things like my word count and progress and such but it doesn't record things like how many words in what hour and things like that when it was closed opposed to what it would collect when open. So I wouldn't mind a background feature where it does just that. Of course I can't really get mad because I still love the application.

This is the best writing tracker I've ever used. Every other tracker requires you to use a whole new program and takes extra steps to understand it. This one is built right into Google Docs, so I don't have to change anything I do! I set my goal for the day and my overall goal, and it visually lets me know how I'm doing with a progress bar. It gives me cool stats like average word count and details across multiple documents. When I complete a goal, it gives me an emoji and a little green check mark for that instant boost of serotonin. And then, it encourages me to write a little bit more! It's pinned to the side of the doc so it's not intrusive at all. AND it has a dark mode?? For someone with ADHD, this is amazing. I've written every day for 2 weeks now and I don't see myself stopping. I'm already at 14,000 words. Thank you so much! You changed everything for me!

this has been the force behind me writing several 30k+ works in the past two years. a huge loft goal of mine that has now been achieved. while the app sometimes works a little funny, issues are always fixed quickly and it's a reliable way of tracking your work. i would love the option to set up separate goals for deparate docs so if i'm writing more than one thing i can track them all.

This is a really useful app that incorporates well into Google Docs. If you're looking to start writing and want something easy to use, but very effective, this is the way to go! Great user interface which makes it easy to track your goals and word count. Have recommended it to other friends who write and they love it too.

I can now leave Dabble behind and work entirely in Google Docs because of this tracker. It's helping me meet my daily word goals, push harder to exceed them, and adjust them as needed. Thank you so much for making it! Well done.

good stuff! but for some reason even though I've written way more then 112 words every time it updates it just keeps showing 112 words. i have to fully close down the program and reopen it for it to actually update. whats going on?
