More plot lines than you can shake a stick at!
This amazing app mashes up random elements into a single-sentence plot line that can help creative writers overcome writer’s block. There are trillions of possible combinations. Not all of them are guaranteed to make perfect sense, but the creative parts of your brain will heat up as you try to make sense of the plot lines. It’s a cognitive dissonance thing. Save plots that interest you and rate them using a five-star touch-bar.
Use it as a cure for writer’s block, or just some good random diversion. You might find a good creative writing prompt. Who knows, maybe you will stumble on an idea that will be your own Next Big Thing.
DICE BUTTON – generates random story line for your review.
SPEAK BUTTON – sends the story line to the voice synthesizer.

STACK UP BUTTON – cursors up the storage stack to display stored story line.

NOTE: This application is not pre-configured with a set number of stories. The Verdoofd Story-Line Amalgamator takes ten random components for each sentence and configures them into randomly selected syntactic patterns. Every seed is different. The mathematical possibilities are in the trillions.
This LIGHT version contains elements from a broad sampling of many genres, including science fiction, suspense, drama, action and romance. Because of this, although most of the story lines are syntactically plausible, their logical plausibility is subject to random chance. Depending on your sense of humor or appetite for nonsense, the least plausible are often at least entertaining.

English Teachers: Have an NBT competition to see who can develop the best story line from an NBT seed within a certain time limit.
Clinical Psychologists: Have an experimental group read NBT prompts for 10 minutes before executing certain measured tasks to see what statistical difference the cognitive dissonance exercise may have on performance related to a control group who did not read NBT prompts.

Great idea, poor quality app The concept is wonderful and the random components do have the ability to stir up the creative juices if you've been stuck. But, the only thing that really seems to work in the app is the dice button. Tapping any other button results in a strange error message and immediate force close. Clean up the UI and fix the technical issues to make this a powerhouse app.
Composition saver This is a perfect cure for writer's block! I owe NBT for a lot of "creative" comments from my teachers:)
Pretty good! Works great on my Asus tablet. If only there was a way to save the prompts and come back to them later, or even share them with another app, or email them.
Pretty cool And funny as well. Useful.
Very entertaining and activates my brain.
Makes no sense The writing prompts are put together randomly and they make no sense.
Crashes Just like all the others I've downloaded from this company. It crashes everytime
