While Mashable had mentioned the iA Writer among 8 apps every writer should know about, we got an idea about establishing an alternative list of applications that can help any writer to perform the assignments staying mobile. And since many of them prefer Apple gadgets we chose to focus on apps for iPad and iPhone. So now you can find out which apps can make your mobile device a real wheelhorse.
Letâ€™s start from the abovementioned iA Writer that is a popular text editor and cheaper alternative to Pages by Apple. Being compatible both with iPhone and iPad this app allows to use desktop and on-screen keyboards for iPad while only on-screen keyboard for iPhone. The application is especially useful for fast typing: due to a special focus only three lines of text are displayed while the rest of it is obscured and distracting tools like underlining errors and navigation are turned off. Itâ€™s very comfortable for any writer who often has to type as he goes. Files are saved in .txt.
Bamboo Paper developed by Wacom is a digital notebook which is brought more in line with our favorite paper notebooks. Using Bamboo Paper you can make drafts and notes as fast and easy as you do this on a sheet of paper. The app features tools for writing, drawing, coloring and marking. Wacom vector graphics available in this application allows scaling while maintaining the image quality. Electronic notes can be shared through the cloud services (Dropbox, Evernote) or social networking services (Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook). This digital notebook will be helpful for a writer whoâ€™d like to have an effective tool for sharing documents in a digital form via the Internet.DjVu Book Reader developed by DevelSoftware is our choice among other readers working with DjVu format. For the Academic-writing.org itâ€™s not a secret that some of educational materials, especially of a technical nature as well as in natural sciences, exists only in DjVu format. And, unfortunately, there is no free applications for iOS allowing to read such documents. We believe that among all existing DjVu readers this app is the best according to quality-to-price ratio. The application allows dividing books into collections, and it is optimized for dual-core processors.
