yWriter allows you to write and edit your novel on the go. Unlike a word processor, yWriter displays your novel in chapters and scenes, making it much easier to keep track of everything.

And it's not just for novels - yWriter is also handy for note-taking, using the chapters as categories and scenes for separate files.

yWriter is the official iOS port of the popular novel-writing software by Spacejock Software. Files created in yWriter for iOS are compatible with yw6 files from the PC version, so you can transfer your work between the two.

yWriter works with Dropbox for loading and saving your projects.

What's new in version 1.3
Works with the new yw7 project format
Includes 'save as...' so you can transfer projects between local and cloud storage

Our verdict: Ok
  • + yWriter is an ok, 3.5-star app.
