Terrifying. Necessary. It’s probably easier than you think. Getting out of flow state is my problem, weirdly enough. Once I start writing, I get in such a compulsive state of flow, I can’t make myself stop typing even when I want to. I use this to train myself by letting the writing fade. It’s a backwards way to use it, but it took that problem I had and neutralized it down to ...what is now, in terms of writing ... not my issue, but my edge. But if you want to be in flow-state, just do this until you’re no longer monitoring yourself, let anything come out, and don’t feel the need to read it again. It’s a good way to purge mental clutter, to learn things you didn’t know you thought about, to get some weird poetic dream-like writing (if you’re into that) or just to see what happens. Sometimes I like to write the best thing I’ve ever written, and let it almost disappear. Don’t do that though....it’s probably not healthy lol. 😏 To do this without this app (sorry developers) use a pad and pen and try not to let the pen leave the page... or stop moving, even if you are just scribbling for a minute, it’s the same effect minus the panic attacks from the documents disappearing. This app is genius ... I wish more developers did these cool little niche interest apps. 👍🏻🙏🏻

I absolutely love this app. I have been using it consistently since it was released, and I am still using it. Its simple, intuitive, and accomplishes its sole purpose: to keep you writing. To the reviews that gave the app a low rating and complained about it deleting the writing, I say this: Why are you giving a bad rating to an app for doing the very thing it’s designed to do? If you don’t like the idea/philosophy behind it, that’s fine; but you should give it 5 stars for doing what it was made to do. End of my rant on that. In summary, I think this app is a wonderful tool to aid the writing process, especially in the beginning stages or for quick thoughts. Highly recommended to any serious writers, whether hobbyists or professionals. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have been using Flowstate for over a year and it has helped my writing a lot. The new update destroyed it for me though, for two reasons. First, I lost all the files I had created before the update. I tried to follow the procedures they recommended for recovering them from the cloud, but got nothing. Second, on the earlier version I was able to adjust the time it took before it deleted everything. I was able to find a time short enough to spur my creativity but long enough to let the words flow naturally, rather than feeling frantic about getting them out in time. On the new version, I can't find any setting that allows me to adjust the delete time, and the default setting is too quick for me. Others have written about great support from the developers. That has not been my experience. I have emailed them and have never received a response.

I fell in love with this app on the Mac, and was nervously hoping it would appear on my iPad's App Store too. Thank you developers of this fantastic app. Okay, so for those who don't get the usefulness of this app: It makes you write. Period. If you don't keep writing, you lose everything. But don't fear! You get plenty of advance warning. Your text actually starts to fade out, but once you start typing again it all comes back. So just keep at it. Easy. The point is you aren't supposed to worry about what you're writing, just do it. Your thoughts will come out, and you'll remember ideas you had throughout the day that you desperately wanted to get into text but could only remember when you were literally forced to keep those fingers moving and building the muscle memory necessary to type an entire novel out. Question to the devs: Any idea how many novels have been published using Flow State to create the first draft? I'd be curious to know. Cheers guys, fantastic app. You may have solved my decades long crippling self-consciousness and compulsion to edit as I go. I LOVE this app.

Some ratings here insinuate that there is a bug that deletes your data. They are referring to this app's fundamental feature. When you need to kickstart your creativity, you're forced to write intensely for five (or whatever) minutes for fear of losing your data. This is a FANTASTIC feature. Not a bug. Far from it and it has moved me to write several stories I otherwise would not have. Feature request: first time users aren't given a clear explanation as to what's happening. An up front video or tutorial would help mitigate against these errant and poor reviews.
