I have an iPhone, but prior to my switch I was a hardcore Android nut who loved to talk poorly about Apple products to my sister, a Steve Jobs worshiper. That said, there are plenty of writing apps for iPhone and Android that allow me to compile ideas, brainstorm, prepare for novel writing, limit distractions, crush writer’s anxiety and fuel the adventure of writing.
A writer’s path is more than just writing–from marketing to networking and design. Since I’m a bit of a tech nerd, and most of my freelance work revolves around mobile apps and other technology I want to share my favorite writing apps for iPhone and Android with you. Obviously the key to becoming a writer who finishes work is to sit down at a computer and write, but these writing apps for iPhone and Android help to fill in the gaps for the additional requirements.
Many of these apps are accessible on both iPhone and Android phones, but some are exclusive to one or the other. I’ll update this post in case any of the apps come out with versions for different operating systems.
