When online Help is mentioned twice in reviews ...

As many of you know, I am a technical writer. (nerd) Hush. So, when I came across an app that had its Help file mentioned not once, but twice in the first 15 reviews, I had to check it out. 

Yes, admittedly, my curiosity about the Help made my decision about which app to download. But, hey, it has a high rating, too!

Of course, I checked out the Help file first thing. What I found was well-written and in a very friendly voice. Concise, descriptive enough, and accurate - pretty much everything a Help file should be!

For the folks who often ask me how to "break in" to technical writing: Learn to write like this.
