I don’t consider myself a techie by any stretch of the imagination, but I do have a smartphone, and, to my surprise, I’ve found that it’s a pretty useful little tool for the aspiring author. You know that annoying catchphrase, “There’s an app for that?” Well, it applies to the writing process, too. There are several writing apps that are not only helpful, but downright indispensable. Good news if you’re a perpetually procrastinating, chronically disorganized creative type. (Hey, when you’ve got your sights set on writing the next great American novel, sometimes organization seems overrated.)

That’s why I’ve compiled this list of apps for writers that are actually useful. The last thing you need is one more app that you never use clogging up your home screen. (I’m looking at you, Game Center.) It may seem counterintuitive to put your writing aids on your phone when chances are it’s your biggest distraction, but actually, the writing apps will act as social media deterrents. You’re going to feel pretty guilty tapping on that Facebook app when Pomodoro is right next to it.

Read on for a list of writing apps that will help with everything from the dreaded writer’s block to synonym searches.
