Apps that can supercharge your daily writing

Whatever your genre, you’re sure to benefit from writing apps. The trick to supercharging your daily writing is to find a mix of apps that works for you. We recommend the following:

For enhanced typing


Compatible with: Android & iOS

“Better emails, clearer texts, mistake-free tweets. Write confidently in every app.”

Grammarly is a writing assistant that suggests corrections and detects your tone. The developers also allow integration with your phone’s keyboard for polished writing on the go.


Compatible with: Android & iOS

“Gboard has everything you love about Google Keyboard—speed and reliability, Glide Typing, voice typing, and more.”

This keyboard app lets you multitask with its voice typing feature. No need to put off that idea that came to you while you were washing the dishes.

For planning and focusing


Compatible with: iPhone, Android, Mac, Windows, & more

“Ranked as ‘the best to-do list right now’ by The Verge, Todoist is used by 20 million people to organize, plan and collaborate on projects, both big and small.”

Todoist is a task manager that can contain all your outlines and daily writing reminders.


Compatible with: iOS & Mac

“Bear is a focused, flexible notes app used by writers, lawyers, chefs, teachers, engineers, students, parents and more! Bear has quick organisation, editing tools, and export options to help you write quickly and share anywhere and preserve your privacy with encryption.”

This app has such an uncluttered design that writing on it feels like inscribing your story on premium paper with a fountain pen.


Compatible with: Android & iOS

“The #1 Motivational Journal App”

More than a journal, this app gives you an inspirational writing prompt every day to keep you centered as well as creative.


Compatible with: Android & iOS

“Forest is an app that helps you stay focused on the important things in life.”

This app asks you to plant and nurture a virtual tree. As long as you keep working on your manuscript, you keep your tree alive. The developers also partnered with a tree-planting organization to plant trees whenever users spend virtual coins in the app.

For mixing things up

The Brainstormer

Compatible with: Android & iOS

“The Brainstormer is kindling for creative minds. A tactile tool to randomly combine a plot, a subject and a setting or style, the Brainstormer provides a moment of inspiration for writers, painters, or any creative mind. Combat creative block, spark new ideas and summon up quick subjects for doodling, sketching or journaling.”

This app lets you generate writing prompts when you spin three wheels for plot/conflict, theme/setting, and subject/location.

Character Story Planner 2

Compatible with: Android

“Every character has stories and every world has histories.”

Geared towards players of table-top role-playing games, this app can also be used by writers like you to plan out characters, scenes, locations, and more.

For fine-tuning


Compatible with: Mac & Windows (mobile version coming soon)

“Ludwig is the first sentence search engine that helps you write better English by giving you contextualized examples taken from reliable sources.”

If you think your sentences sound awkward or you’re not sure how to use a certain verb, you can take your cue from established media sites, scientific journals, and official documents through Ludwig.


Compatible with: Mac & Windows

“Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear. It’s like a spellchecker, but for style. It makes sure that your reader will focus on your message, not your prose.”

Despite his adult audience, Ernest Hemingway wrote stories that are actually readable to fifth graders. The Hemingway app judges which U.S. grade level is required to understand your text. The lower the level, the clearer—and more effective—your text.

We hope you can find the time to explore our recommended apps. A good combination of these will surely optimize your daily output and help you reach your goals.
