This is a continuation of last Wednesday’s post “The Ultimate List of Mobile Apps for Writers on iTunes”. Except today I want to focus on apps that the Google Play Store offers Android users.
You can get an app for almost anything you want these days. They can help you stay organized, sharpen your knowledge, keep you up to date in the news, social media and more, or be a huge time waster that brings you joy. However you choose to use them know that they can also help in your current career or hobby. That’s where this list comes in. It’s a list of handy apps that are very useful to writers and authors alike. I hope you enjoy them and find some new ones you didn’t know about.
