Top Smartphone Apps for Copywriters

There’s a scene in one of my favourite books, Dance, Dance, Dance by Haruki Murakami, in which the protagonist refers to his job as a commercial writer as little more than shovelling snow. a euphemism for something someone has to do. to counter that feeling, I’ve put together a list of labour-saving smartphone writing apps that are sure to put the joy back into writing, or at the very least, make the process pain-free.

Evernote when I first started out as a copywriter, I used to keep a little book just for collecting ideas. Evernote allows you to collect your thoughts and musings while on-the-go. You can also save pictures and voice recordings to it too. and for free.

Swype and SwiftKey X We all know the keypad on a smartphone can never replace a full-sized keyboard. But download Swype or SwiftKey and you’ll be the swiftest typist in the south, or north or wherever you live. Here’s how. Swype works by letting you swipe your fingers across the keyboard to get the letters you want. it then turns those letters into the desired word. SwiftKey works on the same principle, and even suggests entire sentences based on your writing style.

Dropbox As the tagline suggests, its aim is to Simplify Your Life, which is no bad thing when you’ve a hundred pressing things to do. Dropbox lets you share large files easily and synchronise them for access on your smartphone, laptop or computer. You can also invite people to your Dropbox folder so they can access your work at every stage of the process.

Manuscript this is a great little project management tool with an in-built thesaurus and dictionary. it also has access to Wikipedia and Google. Aimed more at novel writers (no excuses for not writing that book now), it enables you to select, move, and export your work and export existing work to the app via Google docs. a raft of other features for aspiring novelists is also included.

Awesome Note this is a nice little personal organisation app that visually ticks the box. it enables the user to choose the colours, background images, fonts, and icons and annotate them with pictures or self-made drawings. Notes can appear in graphic calendar format to make your working day look as though it’s going to be a whole load of fun.
