Sometimes the moment just strikes you and you are feeling creative when it comes to words.

Don't Let Anything Curb Your Creativity

Just because you may not be at home in front of your computer screen doesn't mean you can't be creative. The Storyist app makes it possible to write, review, and revise no matter where you are. You could be commuting to work on the train, enjoying a picnic at the park, or even on vacation and write when the moment strikes you to. This app works as a rich text editor that allows you to choose your footer, header, images, colors, fonts, add comments, and choose a style sheet. Input couldn't be easier since the app supports Bluetooth keyboards. The app allows you to put together in-depth stories such as screenplays and manuscripts and will leave them submission-ready for you.

A Seamless Tool

The Storyist app offers users a seamless tool that can make writing a breeze no matter where you are. Some of the included features are wireless printing made possible with AirPrint, color-coded index cards to help organize the story, shortcut keys, story sheets that you can customize, and you can easily export your text files as a PDF document. Importing is also simple using email, Dropbox, and iTunes. The user interface is very basic and really keeps things clean and uncluttered, which can help with the story writing. All of the features and tools are neatly tucked out of the way so they aren't messing up the screen.

I really like the idea that you can first layout your story using the story sheets and index cards. It gives you a chance to collect your thoughts and ideas before you go or even as you go.
