We're in the age of the smartphone and tablet. Everywhere you go, you see people tapping away at their screens and it's not going to stop anytime soon. I have one. In fact, I have one of each and one of the great features with both is the invention of the app stores, something that's great for the writer on the go. The problem is there are so many apps out there, it's hard to know where to start. Here are a list of my top 5 recommended apps that I have either personally used or researched. I do want to note that I am an android user, so I'm more familiar with that app store. However, I have broken the list into Android/Apple as not to leave anyone out. There are some apps that can be found on both, such as Evernote and Google Drive. These are just located in one or the other. Also, all these apps are free. If you're like me then you're a writer on a budget. Here we go.
