About this app

Writer's Companion is an app created by author Caleb A. Robinson to aid writers in planning their novels, organizing their content, and achieving their goals.

Projects are at the center of the Writer's Companion App. Every goal you set, outline you create, and world-building item you add will be related to a Project to help you stay organized. The word "Project" can be replaced with "Novel", "Screenplay", or "Dungeons and Dragons Campaign"; it just depends on what you use the app for!

The world-building tool can be used to organize information about the world in which your story takes place. Adding a world-building item will create a new category into which you can organize your ideas (for example "Characters" or "Kingdoms"). Once you have created a category, you can add individual items (for example "Percy Jackson" or "Gondor").

Goals help writers stay on target to achieve their dreams. Use this part of the app to create and edit goals and to view your progress. Goals are tied to your Projects so you can keep your progress organized. Goals don't have to be measured in word counts. You can use chapters, hours, pages, scenes edited—anything you can think of!

The planning tool allows you to create chapter outlines for your Project. Each Project can have one chapter outline. You can add world-building items to each chapter so you can keep track of which characters are present in the scene, where it takes place, or really anything you might need to track! You can easily view your writing progress by checking the box next to a chapter when it is complete.

There are a handful of other tools to use such as note taking, backing up your data, a Tip of the Day, user statistics, and more!

I was LOVING it! Great idea, pretty user friendly. About 1,000 words into a chapter my work suddenly disappeared. I hadn't so much as pressed the back key (hadn't backed up because it was a new chapter). Fortunately I remembered almost word for word what I'd had down before (so I'm not too pressed about it), but I don't know what happened?? Also, the ability to UPLOAD a picture rather than only being able to take one for character profiles would be really useful. Keep up the great work!

This app seems great... at first. Then it's clear how unusable it is. You can sort but not filter items by project. You can't create multiple layers, — for example, you can't put a culture in a country's layer if the country's already in a layer/folder. That's doubly a problem since you only get 30 free "items" and then you have to pay for the premium subscription. This clunky app isn't worth $10 outright, let alone for only a year at a time. What a waste of energy.

It's a good start to a productive writing app, but easy configurations could make it so much better! One example, characters are not within a project. They are listed all together instead of inside each project. That is a deal breaker. I don't want to search down a big list for all my characters. Like I said earlier, this has potential, just needs some tweaks.

That's a good suggestion! I've actually noticed the same thing when using it. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review :)
