The 9 Best Apps And Tools To Help Writers Boost Productivity


Guest Post

Reaching the ultimate
point of productivity is a concern of every writer. Regardless of the
efficiency you have at a certain point of your career, you inevitably notice a
decline in your motivation and ability to write at one point or another. Among
all apps and tools available today, these can help you the most:

Apps That Facilitate A Writer’s Work

  1. Evernote is a tool you’ve probably heard of. If you learn how to use it, it will help you do your work at any time. Consider this app as your
    idea book, where you jot down ideas and thoughts anywhere. The main
    difference is in the ease of usage. In addition, the app synchronises the data
    with your account in the cloud, so you can access it at any time. Waiting in
    line won’t make you nervous anymore; simply get your phone and note what
    inspires you.
  2. As a writer, you must care about grammar and vocabulary. Don’t stop working on
    your progress. Grammarly is a great tool that will save you from embarrassment. It identifies and
    corrects up to 10 times more errors than the grammar and spelling feature of
    your usual word processor.

Tools That Boost A Writer’s Focus

  1. When you have an
    important project to work on, social media platforms are more alluring than
    ever. Don’t fall into that trap; use a tool that will block the distracting
    pages. Anti-Social is an awesome tool that helps Mac users work in a
    safe online environment, without access to social media like Twitter and
    Facebook, as well as all other websites they specify.

  2. Now let’s get to the real
    writing tool: use OmmWriter if you want to be able to ignore every possible
    distraction you could think of. As soon as you launch OmmWriter, you will be
    teleported into a focused environment that will make you a more productive
    writer.
  3. Here is another app that
    will enable you to focus on the task at hand: TeamViz – a timer that works in
    accordance with the Pomodoro technique. There is a free app that you can use called Pomodone. This method is based on the principle
    that you’ll work better if you make short, frequent breaks in between writing
    sessions.

Ultimate Efficiency Boosters for Writers

  1. When you are limited with
    deadlines, it is extremely important how you manage your time. Try Write or Die 2 – an app that creates a
    stressful situation for writers. Yes, stress can be a positive thing,
    especially when it pushes you to write more content in less time. If you don’t
    meet the goal you set when using this platform, you’ll face some consequences,
    depending on the mode you choose.

  2. Of course, you also need
    to type like a maniac if you want to follow the fast progress of your thoughts.
    10FastFingers is a tool that will improve your typing skills with awesome games.
    You can try different typing tests that will show you how accurately and
    quickly you type.
  3. How about another test
    for your ego? A little criticism will help you improve serious flaws in your
    work. AutoCrit is an automated
    manuscript editing tool that will warn you about excessive use of passive voice
    and adverbs, as well as repetitive diction.

Now that you are aware of
the most efficient apps and tools you need, start experimenting with them and
you’ll boost your productivity in no time.

    You missed out prowritingaid.com (related to Grammarly). The free version allows you to check 1000 words at a time and will show up:
    overused words
    repeated sentence starts
    long sentences
    passive and sticky text
    and a host of other faults.
    The paid version removes the word limit and provides even more functionality.
