If you’re an aspiring writer or already a published one, we know how hard it is to get your writing groove on. We can sit in our chair and stare at our screens until the inspiration kicks in. However, that leaves us with nothing else to do with our lives.
So for the on-the-go writers who like to get their creativity running by going out and experiencing the world, we have compiled this list of iOS apps that would help you fend off writer’s block. Even when you’re on the subway or walking in a park.
A text editor that helps your focus by minimizing the distractions you see on your screen.

5. A Novel Idea
From the name alone, you pretty much could guess what this app is good for. Available at the Apple store, this app helps you jot down your plots and inspirations as you build your way to your own novel. One quirky feature of this application is that it allows you to drag and drop scenes you have previously written to put it in the sequence you would want it to appear in your story.
