iOS Writing Apps

I’ve been thinking about and setting up iOS apps for writing. (I’m still pretty sure that I’m going to get an iPad Pro this fall.)

iOS Writing Apps

  • Firefox: I’ve been doing all my writing stuff in FF on my desktop and have it synced so it knows all the stuff about me.
  • Pintrest: Pintrest keeps telling me I should use the iPad app. I’m trying to be better about using social media, including this one. (Check out my Smoke Jumper Wedding thing, I’m planning a murder at a wedding. Mysteries are fun but I want to have all my ducks in a row.)
  • Facebook: The social media thing, plus easy sharing.
  • Scrivener: YAY!!!
  • Google
    • Drive
    • Sheets
    • Docs
    • Keep: I’ve been using Keep to stash my ideas, links, and a lot of other stuff, I’ve been quite liking it.
    • Inbox
  • WordPress
  • iBooks
  • Overcast: Have I ranted about how much I love this? I love Overcast.
  • Overdrive: Did you know Overdrive does audiobooks too? Overdrive is likely the tool your library uses to let you borrow books. Super handy.
  • Goodreads
  • Dictionary
  • Dropbox
  • Pages
  • Wolfram Words: I think I like this tool in use more than I actually use it.
  • iCloud drive
  • Kindle
  • Wattpad
  • Nook
  • Audible
  • Canva
  • iAnnotate: This is more of an audio tool, but I may use it in the future when critiquing things. We’ll see?
  • LastPass

Anything I’m missing? Anything I should have? Anything you have questions about? Anyone have a great audio editing app?

    Do you do most of your writing on your iPad?

      Not most. I’d guess about 25% is mobile, phone or iPad. Scrivener on iOS has already increased how much I write on the iPad. I think the pro will increase that even more. Three years ago I wrote my entire nano novel on the iPad though, so part of it is other factors.
