8. JotterPad (Free)

JotterPad sounds like the kind of app that you could use to note down small things, right? Well, you could use it for that but it’s actually more of a basic text editor. Think of the old Notepad app on Windows computers and you will have more of an idea of what to expect from JotterPad if you download it for free on your Android device. It’s the perfect app for those who like their text editors simple, allowing you to write drafts and revise them when on the go. You can save your files in the portable .txt format, which can be opened on just about any platform out there! There is also a nice built in dictionary for those that appreciate such convenient additions. – Download from Google Play

7. Dictionary.com (Free)

From built in dictionaries to dedicated dictionary apps, perhaps the best one out there for Android and iOS devices is the one developed by Dictionary.com – of course, right? And this app does exactly what you might expect it to do. There are over 2 million definitions and synonyms, which is great for writers who are constantly using their thesaurus. Perhaps the best thing about this app however is that it works entirely offline – which is great for when you wish to conserve battery, or are using the app on an airplane for example. – Download from Google Play

6. Writing Prompts (Free)

I thought about mentioning both the apps developed by ARC Apps that I’ve used: Writing Prompts and Story Plot Generator. But yes, I think just mentioning this one will suffice! The apps are both designed with writers in mind. building on the idea that even the best writers out there can suffer from writer’s block at one point. This app helps get things started by providing you with a range of interesting scenarios that can be a great starting point for a story. It’s also great for those who take creative writing classes! – Download from Google Play

5. Draft (Free)

Draft is another plain text editor in the vein of the one mentioned above (JotterPad) though has a much more robust and detailed set of features. There are widgets included that allow you to interact with the app from your homescreen. The app also allows you to share your writing quickly and easily in a variety of different ways. Be it on social media or through email or whatever! It’s also a great note taking app, and can help a lot if you are using an app to do research. What’s more, there’s even Dropbox integration that allows you store your files on the go! – Download from Google Play

4. Write ($3.99)

For those writers out there who use their tablet as the primary platform for churning out pages of text, the Write app could interest you! Unlike the other apps on the list, it is exclusive to Android tablets so you know it has been developed in terms of layout with the larger screen in mind. Also, unlike the other apps on the list, it’s not free but will set you back $3.99 from the Play Store! The layout is of a minimalist ilk, with an emphasis on removing the distractions to provide a clean writing interface and experience. The app can be used to take notes, edit text files, manage some kind of journal; there’s a bunch of great things that the app does, so it’s definitely worth the price! – Download from Google Play

3. Evernote (Free)

We’ve mentioned Evernote enough times by now for you to know how fond we are of it. It’s really the kind of app that grows on you: the interface is inviting enough that you may begin using it to simply note down mobile numbers and such. Then, ideas for stories and quick memos; then all of a sudden you find yourself using the voice recording option to remind yourself of things, and much more! The app has an endless array of features and is one of the most useful you can find. Really it defines the idea of productivity apps in that it makes your life much more organized and easy to manage. So yes, as a writing app it works when it comes to jotting down notes and the like, but I wouldn’t really use it for word processing or editing long text documents. Still, it’s an app that every writer must own – you never know when the ideas will hit you, and it’s nice to have a reliable note taking app like this one by your side to make sure you never forget! – Download from Google Play

2. Google Drive (Free)

Google Drive is another app that we’re very fond of here at Top 8. Mainly because we use it for just about anything! There was always the issues of compatibility in the past, but these days Drive will deal with just about anything you throw at it. Whether importing Word files or PDFs or just about anything, the software has been designed to deal with it. We typically use the desktop version of Drive, syncing this with the mobile version – it’s a great storage space to put all your important files, and represents and excellent way to maintain writing across different platforms. You can start writing a document in a shared folder on the Drive while at work, for example, and then whip out your Android tablet on the way home from work and finish off the file by adding the details before sharing it with someone else. The Google Docs package is great and deserves a mention, but Google Drive is a Swiss army knife in comparison! – Download from Google Play

1. Microsoft Word (Free)

I’ve never been a fan of the Microsoft Office Mobile app, believing that it removed the power of the likes of Word and Excel and never did them justice. Fortunately, Microsoft has hit one (or three) out of the park with their recent dedicated Office apps, available for your Android tablet. Finally, they seem to harness the power of this great suite and transfer some of the excellent features for use with mobile. What’s more, the apps are available for free – which helps to explain why they have broken all kinds of records for amount of times downloaded in recent months. If you’ve not downloaded the Word app just yet, give it a try now! – Download from Google Play
