20 Apps For Writing On The iPad


flickeringbrad-2-write-ipad20 Apps For Writing On The iPad

Though the tablet, in form, tends towards consumption, the iPad can also serve as a capable word processor.

How capable depends on how demanding you are about your word processing. Whether or not you have a physical keyboard (Logitech makes a very functional–and very thin–bluetooth keyboard) also matters, as does simply what you’re used to, how flexible you are, and how mobile you need to be.

In short, the iPad is more than adequate for all but the most demanding writer, even more so when using apps that are designed to be used on the iPad. Below, listly user Rabab Khan offers 20 apps for writing on the iPad.

We tend towards Microsoft Word and Apple’s Pages here for our tablet-based word processing, but each have their own perks. A few of these apps aren’t merely word processing apps, but apps that literally support writing–as in fiction. Bonus.

What are your preferences for writing on the iPad? Let us know in the comments.

    I prefer Textkraft, which is not listed here. It’s a plain text editor, which let’s me focus on my work. Plus: I don’t own a special keyboard for iPad, which is why textkraft is my choice. The cursor navigation is just fab!
