What people are saying.

These are a few of the things said about Dabble in support, forums, and social media.

You are so the best! I wish could find the words to express how much I have loved using your program and what it has meant to me to write again after a very long absence. That alone is such a wonderful thing to me but your fast answers and cheerful support have been an extra bonus I couldn't have asked for. To top that off I didn’t think you would get back to me on this until after the holiday. I really admire your drive! Thank you!

I am absolutely in love with Dabble. I've used it every day since downloading it, and it'd hands-down the best software I've ever found for writing. I love that I can use both the app and the website, and the program looks the same and has my work in both places. You've found a lifelong customer!
—Ashton
I really love using Dabble, by the way. I used to use Scrivner, but Dabble has a kind of simplicity and ease of use that I find soothing and more conducive to me actually writing. Thanks for creating it! :)
—Renee
I'm really loving Dabble. It's great for jotting down notes during my lunch break, or working hard during my writing blocks. I really do love the program, desktop and browser based is exactly what I was looking for.
—Eryn
Dabble is stellar! So simple and easy to use. The customer support is outstanding! I lost a bunch of material from the cloud but I got in touch with customer support and they rescued my lost files! Support always responds promptly and is super helpful and friendly. Absolutely recommend to all writers out there who are looking for a refreshing new platform to write with!
—Ellie
I really like the site.
—Marie
I sincerely hope you will be able to make Dabble into everything you'd like it to be. Thank you for putting so much time into this and for continuing to improve it.
—Sarah
I fell in love with it right away, and started adding content like crazy.
—Roger
I originally was just going to try the trial and leave it at that, because I couldn’t justify the 9.99 a month for the program. After using it for the last few days I’m extreme happy with the ease of keeping my current novel on there. I’ve been able to work on it in a number of different places without losing any work and I love the word count feature. So I’m all in now! Thanks for developing this!
—Sevi
I absolutely love dabble. It's amazing, thank you.
—Tuja
I have to say I am loving Dabble! Wow, you have made this an easy process for me. Thanks so much. I appreciate it. I have a lot of stories that are stuck in my head and have been for a long time. This seems to be the time for them to finally find their way into real words. Word is just too hard to start from scratch. At least for me, maybe I am easily intimidated by it, lol. So again, thanks.
—Denise
So far it has been wonderful! It motivates me to take things one step at a time with creating my first novel!
—Mariah
I really like Dabble so far and have recommended it to a number of writer friends. I have enjoyed the interface and the easy access from different computers through the cloud storage system.
—Teeth
I have been totally loving the software.
—Dean
I like the simplicity. And it just looks pretty... lol
—Julie
I would like to say that I love this product so much! Thank you for making it. It has made my life as a writer so much easier!
—Maria
OMG, this is so much better than Scrivener. The formatting! Oh my god. Sooooo gooood! Wow. This is SO elegant.
—Chet
Your help and understanding has been simply top-notch through this entire process and I'm truly grateful!
—Christine
You are wonderful! Thank you. I am excited to be along to use Dabble & watch it grow!
—April
I just want to let you guys know that I am in love with my experience with dabble. I look forward to writing just to see my stuff laid out in front of me. I have tried my hand at scriviner before, but found there to be a distracting number of functions, which is all fine if you're a certain type of person, but it's not for me! I am absolutely loving my experience with dabble, especially as a simplistic, chromebook, gdoc girl, it fits my needs perfectly, giving me what google docs can't to precision, while not bombarding me with excessive features. That on top of its usability within a browser! It's the best, and I am grateful to have access to this product!
—Anna
I'm enjoying it very much. It's great to be able to skip easily to my story notes and scenes before I begin writing each chapter. I'm so glad I found this tool!
—Lori
Thanks for the great writing app, I find it reliable and easy to use.
—CJ
I Love LOVE LOVE this program. I tried autocrit and iliys and this one just works for me. For the first time I finished a book and I am soooo soooo happy!
—Ottilia
Love this service so far
—Jarett
Dabble is the best novel software I've experienced. Thanks so much - I loved it,and it helped me focus on my novel.
—Sono
I just want you to know how awesome I think Dabble is. This is a really worthwhile app for any writer and while it is geared towards the novel would be useful for any long form writing. This is a fantastic product.
—Jessica
I love what you are doing and have already signed up to continue past the free trial. This product gives me so much flexibility and peace of mind. Just knowing if my computer goes belly up that my work is safe is an enormous thing. So thank you and I can't wait for the goal tracker!
—Terri
I've been really pleased with Dabble so far! I love the design… and the distraction free fade in is fantastic. I didn't even notice it at first.

Dabble is great! :) Very easy to use even for a not good with tech person like me, haha.
—Becky
I wanted to thank you again for providing the interface and functionality I wanted. Scrivener was too complex and syncing was fraught with peril. Novlr lost my stories, but even after they recovered them for me, I still prefer your site. Thank you.
—Lorene
What an elegant solution, Jacob! ...haha...I was referring to the Prologue implementation...but the numbering as well. :) hell...just everything you've done on this so far. :)

Dabble is a very smooth interface. It is one of easiest that I have ever used. I thoroughly enjoy it.
—Latara
I have to say, I was skeptical that there would be any real benefit over simply using Word to do this project, but I have been very pleased. The interface is nice. I appreciate the lack of clutter. The "fade out" of everything but the writing space is great.
—Phillip
I find the lack of controls a good thing! I'm a rusted on Scrivener user but I've really enjoyed using Dabble. I've whacked it on the laptop and I'll be using it on the road. Thank you so much for the software! I'll be signing up at the end of NaNoWriMo - because you just can't have too much writing software 👍
—Sue
I think you're onto something.

—Forest
I'm loving the site so far :)

Rather an intuitive site.

Using Dabble for my Nano, thanks for the awesome app :")
—Fuicchi

I'm loving Dabble! It's a lot more intuitive and easier on the eyes than some of the other programs I've used.
—AJ
I am absolutely adoring Dabble at the moment. The set up is very neat and clean cut, and the organisation of notes feels easy and accessible, feels very moveable and customisable, and being able to have folders and subfolders and notes however you want makes organising my thoughts just that little bit easier.
—Amorentia
Loving the app so far!
—Renee
That's what I tell other people. I say, "If you really like Scrivener, you'll L-O-V-E Dabble!" And it's true.
—Robin
I am actually really enjoying this software. I've been using Scrivener for a while now, but I am loving the plot tool you have. There is a very good chance I will stop using Scrivener and switch entirely to Dabble.
—Ariel
The [NaNoWriMo] word count integration was a stroke of genius on your part.
—Joe
I've been looking for the right app to do my writing in--I've tried several and none have been quite right. However, Dabble has really impressed me!
—Benjamin
Absolutely love that it updates my nano site count!
—AJ
I'm loving Dabble so far!
—Cheyenne
I absolutely love the plot grid. <3
—Leia
Another suggestion (I feel like I'm complaining too much but i like Dabble much more than Scrivener.) ... sorry for complaining so much its honestly just because I love the application.
—Jordyn
I love the simplicity your aiming for, looks great so far
—Stacks
I really like the simplicity of the structure of this programme. And I'm clearly not a programme person. I've taught Writing and it just matches how my brain works.
—Christine
I can honestly say dabble has been very useful so far, and has helped me get over a block with my novel by planning smoother and easier.
—Ginny
This looks awesome.
—Nate
I am super excited about this software.
