Do any of you write with your smart phones. If so, what apps do you suggest?
I write with my Kindle Fire tablet whenever I'm doing walks on the treadmill. I use this app, which I found to be quite useful, as it can pull and automatically save things to my Google Drive account. So I found that to be quite good. Microsoft also offers its Office software for iPhones, too, so maybe have a look at that. I never used it myself, as I don't like Apple's stuff, but it might be what you're looking for.
Thanks. I may resort to something like this.
I use scrivener on my desktop, and was hoping for something transferable.
For a while, I was using Daedalus on the iPhone, automatically syncing to another copy of Daedalus on the iPad, and to Ulysses on my Mac.
I say "for a while"--I'm not sure why I broke the habit, but I did. They're all still installed. I'm going to try it again, and also see if Daedalus can talk to Scrivener.
I use Notebooks on my iPhone and iPad. It syncs across Dropbox to Scrivener.
@Wreybies, thank you.
Does it have a "binder" like in Scrivener? You know where I can look at my chapters on a list and select.
OK, I'm reading about it. That's what it sounds like. Am I correct in thinking this?
Yes, I was originally thinking Daedalus, but now I'm thinking Notebook, maybe. Thanks!
Yeah, it does. They both handle the binder a little differently, so you'll see some files in Notebooks that aren't "pages" from your Scrivener binder, but you'll get it quickly. It's pretty intuitive. The sync set-up for the two is something I haven't had to do in literally years, so I'll be of no help there. Sorry.
Pages Is great for Apple products. You can export your writings in an ebook format as well
I also use "Notebooks" on my ipad and sometimes "Daily Notes" for short notes
Among paid app I can suggest you "Contour". I know many professional writers use it for their iOS devices, however, I didn't try it myself so far.
Notebooks is aight. Thanks Emily.
Crawl I'm looking up Contour now
This looks like it might be the ticket I need for my new iPad Mini ...but I need to know, does this allow writing in RTF, with italics and all that? It'll be next to useless if it doesn't, as I need to keep my basic formatting intact, but it will be just the thing if it does. Plain text is too plain, and PDF doesn't allow editing.
Separate names with a comma.
