After a reader asks me to focus on mobile writing setups, I review my favourite writing apps for iPad.
Comments by two readers prompt me to revisit iA Writer. In this review of iA Writer 5.6, I explore the amazing new style checker and conclude it's finally my time to buy the app.
My two years using Ulysses coincides with the release of Ulysses 20, so I review the update and reflect on my time with the app.
On day 9 of my 30 days of world-building, I review Campfire, a desktop world-building app for macOS and Windows
On day 3 of my 30 days of world-building, I review four tools writers and Dungeon Masters can use to create and manager their world-building projects, namely Scrivener, OneNote, World Anvil and MkDocs.
I review Affinity Photo as an Adobe Photoshop replacement, by putting the app through its pace using Ascension's Atlas Style fantasy map tutorial.
A review of four alternative apps for creating paperbacks for print-on-demand services. I look at Apple Pages, Vellum, Affinity Publisher and PrinceXML.
I review Grammarly, a popular grammar checking service, and asks if the premium subscription is worth the expense for writers and editors.
Sick of poorly made drawing tablets, I upgrade to an iPad mini 5 and draw my first map using Procreate with the Apple Pencil.
I review World Anvil, a very promising and comprehensive app for world-builders, table-top gamers and novelists.
With the release of Ulysses 15, I review its new features, and ponder my future with the app in the wake of growing competition and a few niggles.
I return to iA Writer to review version 5, having previously set it aside in favour of Ulysses. I'm very impressed, and I make a surprising admission along the way.
