Cool Android Apps to Help Writers

Whether you’re a freelance writer who loves to whip up a great 500 word article or you’re working on writing what you hope will be the next great American novel, your Android phone can help you do your best work.  While the idea of writing on your cellphone may seem strange at first, did you know that some of the most popular books in Japan are written entirely on cellphones?  Although you still may never write an entire book on your phone, you never know when you are going to be hit with a spark of inspiration.  When this happens, you can ensure that you get down what’s in your mind by grabbing your phone.  If you want to use your Android phone to help with your writing, here are the apps that will be the most beneficial to you:

Notepad Notes Scribe

When you need to get something down quickly, this app can be a lifesaver.  Notepad Notes Scribe is designed to allow you to easily get down text notes.  Once you get a note down, you can choose where you want it to be saved.  This app also allows you to effortlessly email any of your notes.

GDocs for Android

Because it’s an easy and reliable tool to use, you may already be using Google Docs to handle much of your writing needs.  Many writers like Google Docs not only for its easy to use word processor, but also because they can use the spreadsheets to track information about their writing business or progress.  If you want to access your Google Docs account while you’re away from your computer, you can take advantage of GDocs for Android.  In addition to viewing your documents, this app allows you to edit them.  You can also use this app to create new documents.


If you want a powerful word processor on your phone but prefer to use something other than GDocs, Androffice is probably the perfect choice.  If you have ever used Open Office then you already know the level of quality you can expect from this app.  Androffice makes it very easy to write new documents or edit existing ones.

The Advanced English Dictionary & Thesaurus

This app can come in quite handy when you have an idea in mind but can’t pinpoint the exact word that you want to use.  The Advanced English Dictionary & Thesaurus can also be very helpful if you’re proofreading a piece of your work and realize that you unintentionally used the same word over and over.

Shakespeare Quotes

As a writer, words normally flow from your fingers or pen onto a screen or paper.  However, there are times when regardless of how hard you try, you can’t seem to get the words flowing.  When you hit this point, you need a source of inspiration.  And what better inspiration than one of the greatest writers of all time?  By reading some of the quotes that this app supplies, you will be able to overcome your block and resume doing what you love.
