Honestly, I never go anywhere without this app in my phone. I used to write my ideas on the phone built-in apps but then it so happened that a few times my phone’s system went down randomly and I lost all my notes. Evernote gives me the option to connect my email and I can open all my notes on my laptop so I never lose them again. You can even add pictures from the camera, any attachment, audio, you can set up a reminder or use a hand written note, aside from text ones.
The notes seem super organized, and you can always upgrade your account to use more options, but I’ve found that free version is enough for me.

GrammarlyThe World’s Best Grammar Checker
Many people use this app to review their semantics and edit their novels, emails, social media posts and other online conversations.
Free version gives you the following options:
- Check correctness – spelling, grammar and punctuation
- Clarity – helps make your writing easier to understand and
- Engagement – tells you how interesting and effective your writing is.
Once you fix up the errors in your document, Grammarly will show you the overall score of your text. This score represents the quality of writing in this document. You can increase it by addressing Grammarly’s suggestions. By clicking on overall score, you’ll see your word count, readability and vocabulary.
You can also download the report for further use!
Paid version gives you way more options and I would actually recommend an upgrade for this app in order to unlock its full potential. Some of the options are:
- Fixing the consistency in spelling and punctuation
- Addressing the fluency
- Allowing you to enhance your engagement with compelling vocabulary
- Helping you with delivery and
- Checking for plagiarism
With premium option you can even hire a professional proofreader to check your documents.
You can upload documents, install it as a Chrome, Mozilla or extension, or download it as a desktop app. In the Account section you’ll see the option to check your writing using either American, British, Canadian, or Australian.
What you should pay attention to is that sometimes it might suggest a correction while semantically a word should stay in the sentence. So always pay attention when you’re using it.

TOBEE Mindfulness coach
I used this one whenever my mind was overwhelmed. You can add your own affirmations, since theirs can become repetitive.
This one is actually a game app, but I found it really relaxing, and we all know relaxation is important for quality writing. In Viridi you grow tiny succulents. I don’t know about you, but I adore succulents.
Similar to Viridi – My Oasis. Check out both of them, they can help you relax and become inspired.
You can use Quora app to quickly ask questions and get answers from real people. As writers, we often need real experiences that people had, so just googling something might not be enough. With Quora you are almost always guaranteed that you will get the answer to whatever bugs you during thinking about or writing a specific scene, or even a blog post.
Similar to Quora – Reddit.
