Apps for Writers

Story Tracker

This is a submission tool for writers, that allows you to keep track of what you submitted and where. If you’re a freelancer, this is a great tool when you’re juggling several stories and articles. It also stores details and guidelines for markets accepting submissions, including magazines, journals, book publishers, and websites. With Story Tracker, you can also view the total income earned for each story, add details for each submission, and even highlight upcoming deadlines. There is a FREE version that allows you to store up to five stories, and the full version is $7.99.


Evernote is an easy, free app that helps you organize and remember your ideas across all your devices. You can take notes, create to-do lists, and record voice reminders. As a TechCrunch award winner, Evernote also allows you to save, sync, and share files and keep your finances in order by saving receipts, bills, and contracts.

Chapters—Notebooks for Writing

Chapters lets you create and manage multiple notebooks such as personal journals, travel logs, and brainstorming chapters. It also has a password-protection option, and lets you create PDFs. It’s pretty much a note-taking program that keeps several documents organized…and it only costs $3.99.

iA Writer

Designed for both iPhones and iPads, iA Writer allows you to put your thoughts into text without distractions…no spelling checkers, no auto-correction, no toolbars. These features are only revealed when you need them. This app also has iCloud and Dropbox integration…all for $0.99.
