Helpful Apps for Writing

Good morning angels!

As the semester is coming to a close, there are more deadlines for papers that are due. I understand the struggle of improper grammar, spelling, and no structure. Luckily for you, we have done research on apps on mobile devices to help with your writing problems.  And yes, by mobile devices we mean iOS, Android, and online programs.


  1. Evernote

We have mentioned this app and website before in a previous blog post, but it’s still our top recommended for educational use. It allows you to organize your paper by making lists that can be shared with other people (group members) . Not only can you share lists, but notes in general. Another upgraded option is scanning that can be done very simple.
