If you want to write properly on your iPhone, you can simply take advantage of the various custom writing apps that are designed to improve your writing skills. Nowadays, you can find plenty of apps online that will help you correct grammar and spelling mistakes, find new words to use, and improve your vocabulary.

In today’s post, I’m presenting the best iPhone writing apps that any student or professional can leverage in order to skyrocket his academic writing skills.


Grammarly is the #1 grammar police app that any iPhone user can use to “stay out of trouble”. Back when grammar apps weren’t available, every college assignment I wasn’t able to complete was “solved” using a professional writing service. To be more exact, I was getting help from an essay writing company that was taking care of my grammar and spelling mistakes, as well as of the structure of my homework.

Grammarly is now the perfect solution for any student who needs additional proofreading. You don’t have to use an essay service to be good at grammar. Use Grammarly!
