What writing software/app do you use for writing on your pc/phone?
Would never write on a phone. Scrivener for PC all the way.
Google docs. I switch frequently between my phone, laptop, and desktop and find it the best for that.
Yeah, writing on a phone is not ideal but I do like reading over the document on my phone the best. It helps for removing myself from the writing a bit and see mistakes.
Google docs. It does lag once your document gets to a certain size, but it's the only writing app that works well on my phone. Also, I can't seem to find a simple way of saving and later finding regular docs on my phone - I can find them but it requires so many clicks lol, whereas on Google doc, it's all synced, and I can find everything easily through one app.
On my laptop, I'm torn between Google docs and Word. Truth is, I prefer Word because it doesn't lag and it doesn't take an age to load. But I like how hassle-free it is to switch between devices on Google docs.
Not me. I read everything on my tablet, but my phone is just too small and annoying to view any real text on.
I use Word on my laptop. I don't write on my phone at all.
Another 'don't use the phone to write' here, and I use Scrivener for my laptop.
I don't use a phone or tablet for writing. Mostly Scrivener on my Macbook. Sometimes a bit in Ulysses if I feel like a change.
For those using Google Docs, Zoho Writer looks pretty good as well--not sure if it has the same lag issues with large documents.
I use Typora on my desktop.
I use Nebo on my phone. Though I have a Samsung, not an iphone. It seems to be the same. The trick is having a stylus.
What is it with motivational muzak? I always feel uncomfortable hearing it. I recognize its purpose, its soul-stealing desires. Mute the volume on the first video. Use the second for an aggressive writing mood.
Google docs if possible.
Alternatively, Gmail, and I send myself an email.
Writer from Open Office 4. Free, no nag screens or fancy bollocks. Does everything I need it to do and gives a huge two-finger salute to Microsoft every time I open it.
I don't do any creative writing on a mobile device - the very thought sickens my soul.
I like Scrivener's folder and document layering system because it reminds me of Photoshop. Very useful for compiling lore notes.
