You need it to complete university applications, to communicate with your grandmother, and maybe even to earn a living. Clear, effective writing is an invaluable skill, one that can be improved upon with a little help from the Writing Tips iPhone app (99 cents).

The app includes helpful advice for multiple methods of writing, including how to establish a plot for a piece of fiction and how to surmount writer’s block (think of a blank page like an unexplored country, your imagination is the map).

The Writing Tips app gets a lot of things just right, such as advising users that one of the best ways to become a stronger writer is to read the work of great writers. It also suggests reading dialogue out loud to ensure an authentic feel, and it gives appropriate attention to the critical, but sometimes painful, process of editing.

But the app doesn’t stop there. It also includes a dozen timed writing exercises to help you perfect your verbiage. It also includes a list of inspirational notes, arranged by date, from accomplished writers that will keep you motivated.

Lastly, the app includes a collection of writer’s resources, websites, books, and literary magazines that will serve any writer well.
