There are tons and tons of apps out there for Smartphone users: apps for organizing things, apps for distracting yourself, apps for learning things, and so much more. Sure, some are worthless. That’s definitely true. But time and again you will run across some really useful applications available for our phones and gadgets. These three applications are extremely helpful for writers of any genre:
This application helps individuals keep track of their writing output. It stores word counts for each writing session and logs the total number of words written each session. While it can be fun and addicting to keep track of the amount of words you write in one session, Writechain has more useful applications to the writing process as well. This app also acts as a motivator. It will create a “writing chain” for you by counting the consecutive daily writing sessions you do. If you miss a day, you will break the chain and the app will notify you. This encourages writers to produce something every day. We all know that the key to successful writing is practice.
This application is a “mind-mapping” tool. It provides a platform for you to organize ideas, images, and notes and then will create a visual map for it. The Mindjet app allows individuals to jot down their thoughts whenever and wherever they arise. It is great for writers because it acts as a virtual notepad for concepts, but it organizes itself. Fabulous. With this app you can access your task list, goals, and schedules at anytime from any location.
3. Creative Whack Pack:
Available for the iPhone, this application is a great tool for writers and the creative-minded. Whack Pack is a brainstorming tool, developed to help individuals come up with creative ideas. This application provides individuals with numerous strategies that will provoke and inspire creative thinking. It may sound a little out there, but it can truly be helpful for a writer in a rut.
While I have described how these applications can benefit writers, they may also be helpful for other individuals. Promoting creativity, organization, and productivity is necessary in almost any realm of work. With thousands of tools at our fingertips, it can be overwhelming to dig through and find the ones that are truly useful. Don’t let good tools go to waste.
