5 Amazing iPad Apps That Will Help You Write On The Go

Dec 07

Writers don’t need to worry about being away from their computer these days if they have an iPad. I’ve talked about a few apps they will want to check out to make everything so much easier.

If you plan on doing a lot of writing on your iPad you will probably want to know about some of the fantastic apps that makes everything so simple. Here are a list of the best ones which cover all of the features you’ll be interested in.

Writing Kit (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/writing-kit-research-write/id426208994)

Writing Kit is a great tool to use when you want to research information as you’re writing because it has a great built-in browser you can use. You will also be able to write things in markdown easily which means it can easily convert to simple HTML. For someone who publishes things on the web it ends up saving you so much time. It also syncs with Dropbox so you never lose anything by accident, plus it supports TextExpander which will speed up the writing process even more.

Byword (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/byword/id482063361)

Byword is the complete opposite of what we’ve just talked about because it’s one of the most basic writing apps you’ll come across. This is actually one of its main selling points and it’s aimed at people who don’t like distractions while they’re trying to work. You can also write in markdown and you can export everything to PDF or HTML documents. If you have the premium edition you can automatically publish new articles online to places like WordPress and Tumblr.

Scriviner (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scrivener/id418889511)

Once you start using Scrivener you know you’re serious about writing. Instead of using the app to write small blog posts and Facebook updates you would use it to write novels and screenplays. You can use it to write drafts, organize your book into chapters, restructure your book as you write it, plus a whole lot more. The only downside is the fact you’ll need to play with it for a while before you fully grasp its true power because it’s a little more complicated than other apps.

Blogsy (https://itunes.apple.com/app/blogsy/id428485324?mt=8)

If you’re a blogger you will love Blogsy because it allows you to post straight to your blog from the app. It’s also compatible with nearly every blogging platform including all the main ones you’ll probably use anyway. You have a full text editor where you can write all your posts and it’s also easy to upload pictures and videos. It’s the kind of app that will temp you to keep the computer switched off because you won’t need it unless you need to do more serious stuff.

Google Docs (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/good-docs-google-docs-html/id497126376?mt=8)

The text editor inside Google Docs maybe gets overlooked by a lot of people because it’s not a fancy new toy they can download to their iPad, but it’s still very popular and also powerful. One of the great things about it is the collaboration capabilities when you’re working within a team. Everyone can access the documents and update them whenever they want. You can also open up all the popular text documents like Microsoft Word files which almost everyone uses.

Evernote (https://itunes.apple.com/th/app/evernote/id281796108?mt=8)

I’m going to squeeze Evernote in at the end because I know millions of people love writing down notes. The last thing you need is to spend hours hunting through Word documents on your computer once you forget where something is. As well as being a great note taker Evernote also makes it easy to find everything again because of it’s navigation system. Another bonus is the ability to save almost anything inside it, so don’t think you’re limited to the written word.

Don’t be shy
