When blogging on a regular basis, or even as a full-time job, you may find yourself feeling a little overwhelmed and wishing there could be a way to make things slightly easier.
Thankfully, there are many apps that can do just that! These apps are ideal for bloggers who are hoping to save time, keep you calm and improve your writing process.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary is the most popular dictionary in the United States, so it’s no wonder there’s now an app for it!
It’s always helpful to be able to look up difficult words in a hurry from your iPhone or Android device, but what sets this dictionary apart from others is its ability to look up a word using voice-search, helping you discover the correct spelling of words you know how to pronounce but have no idea how to spell!
Help Me Write
If you’re suffering from writers' block and are feeling unsure of what to post next, try letting your followers decide for you!
Help me Write allows you to post general ideas for topics so that your readers and followers can vote on the content they’d like to see. When you’ve finished writing your post on their requested topic, you’ll be able to share it with your followers via the app.
This method is significantly more effective than looking at blog trends or statistics, as you’re getting direct information and feedback from your demographic.
Any great blogger will be aware of what’s happening within their industry. By using LinkedIn’s Pulse, you’ll be able to read news stories that are relevant to the topics you write about, helping you stay ahead of the game and allowing you to create content that’s fresh and exciting as soon as it’s discovered.
Pulse is able to be synced across all devices and will even save relevant articles for you to view without internet connectivity. You'll also be able to publish content easily to your social media accounts, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.
No matter how much you love writing, any job can be stressful from time to time. Omm Writer is a writing centre available for Mac, PC and iPad. It focuses on creating a calming, personalised environment while you work, based on your carefully chosen aesthetics.
Additionally, you’ll be able to listen to soothing music, make the most of personalized fonts and enjoy the app’s unique sound effects, such as keyboard strokes.
