    iPhone writing apps

    Discussion in 'Software' started by 123456789, Nov 30, 2014.

    Hey,

    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.

    :O
    @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

    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.

    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.
