Try my other apps:
Poe - distraction free writing for Windows | Listage - a smart, auto-sorting todo list app for Windows Phone

Wordcount is just a word counting app, nothing more. It uses the free open-source library Countable, by Sacha Schmid

Why even make this?

At time of writing there are three other wordcount apps on the windows store. I won't name names, but one is full of horrific full page ads, one doesn't work (on wp10 at least), and one is a paid app.

It seemed to me that there was a gap in the market there for something that worked, didn't cost anything and didn't try to sell you some random crap

It takes some balls to charge someone for an app that counts words. As for the ads guy, don't get me started. I don't like ads. I never intend to put ads in any of my apps, and if you see any there, then something has gone horribly wrong with my code or morals. But I won't rant about them here.
