What it does

This app has a 3-wheel system that combines general elements of narrative, character development, and a world builder/ science fiction style wheels. You simply spin the wheels to create a mixture of these bits, creating instant writer’s block relief!

 

Our Opinion

This app is awesome. When you’re starting a story, it helps to know what exactly you want to say, but you may be stuck on where to begin. Give the wheel a spin, and you receive “Lost along the way, Forest, Best Friend.” This can easily become a story, and you’re to the keyboard before you even start thinking. Simple to use, this app gives you everything you need to create the perfect story worthy of publication.

What it does

This app has so much to offer. Have you ever sat down, thinking of a great character, and tried to work out the details? This can be fun, right? Well, Johnny Simons is a brilliant physicist who recently quit his job at the university to pursue…. What? Thanks to this app, you can have 100 different careers at your fingertips. Hundreds of categories to choose from, this app is the perfect way to round out your characters and fill in the details that are so important.

 

Our Opinion

We all know what a black hole Google can be. Imagine looking up Particles and finding yourself reading about “Ultraterrestrials”– a fascinating, but completely improbable theory dealing with the inner workings of an atom. You have now wasted 2 hours on something you can’t even use, and you haven’t anything written. This app allows you to skip the internet and pull up the exact information you need without all the fluff. So useful for eliminating wasted time!

What it does

Not to be confused with Goodreads (the reading tracker app), this app is for the editing process. You save your work in .pdf format and you download it to the app. Once there, you can edit, highlight, smudge, remove and destroy your writing. This saves on paper, ink, and time.

 

Our Opinion

This app is a great way to edit. Its unique functions help authors to write themselves notes on the go. If you’re like us, you know that time is money, and this app saves. The best part about it is the transfer from app to computer. Very simple to use and save your novel. We highly recommend for anyone from the novice editor to old pros.
