How can anyone evaluate creative writing software without completing a work, that has succeeded in some way? TopTenReviews (TTR) can't possibly have enough staff, with sufficient success and in depth knowledge, to evaluate any software packages. TTR has the infamous Tom's Hardware (and related Tom's offshoots) brand in their stable. That was, once upon a time, a brutal and helpful computer hardware review website. Millions of views, then, and possibly even now. But I wonder how many of the original hardcore staff are still around? When's the last time you went to a Tom's website?
Someone, whom I respected, told me that it takes a minimum of 2000 hours of training and experience to learn and use every function/option of the full blown Photoshop software. Only then can you fully understand that one product. OK, now another 2000 hours with Corel, or GIMP, etc. Finally, you're ready to compare and contrast the two competitors. Folks, with this level of competency, are few and far between. Sometimes, review websites contract with a writer(s) who claims to have a fully qualified opinion. But how does TTR know that person can function at that level. They don't. So, do you think anyone spent 2000, or even 20, hours learning NF or, likewise, any of the other competitors mentioned? Conclusion: TTR is a barely disguised sales website with nearly useless reviews on almost everything. For example, the "Visit Site" button for Novel Factory goes to the NF website front page. The same button for WIN (#1 on the TTR review summary page) goes straight to Amazon where you can BIN (Buy It Now) WIN. It has been said "there is no such thing as bad publicity." Only in that case is the appearance of NF in the list, good. The opinions of successful writers who use NF, are the only thing I accept. Of course, wordlings, this is just my opinion. Wyatt
