Win Codes for Chapters – Notebooks for Writing!

iPad App for Writers

Chapters - Notebooks for Writing

What is your most important writing tool?

Many years ago, the most common answers would probably have been “notebook” or “notepad” and “pen” or “pencil”. I wouldn’t be surprised if majority of modern answers include laptop, desktop computer, and iPad (or any other tablet for that matter). This is especially true for those of us who use the Internet as the main means of carrying out our work, isn’t it?

If you own an iPad, and you would like to have a handy app that will help you write down your thoughts in a more organized way, we have something for you this week: Chapters – Notebooks for Writing.

This is an app which basically gives you an electronic version of the good old notebook. As with many things electronic, you get a lot of advantages. With Chapters, you can create many notebooks, each designated for a specific task. You can create a personal journal, a travel diary, a notebook for a specific client, and so on. More than that, each specific notebook is also searchable! If you want to look for a particular entry, you can easily do so without having to flip through the pages of a traditional notebook.

I don’t need to emphasize how convenient a tool this can be for writers, do I?

There is an added feature, which is perfect for those concerned with privacy. If other people use your iPad, you can always lock notebooks so that no one but you can view their content. This is great for personal journals and other sensitive material. Other features include:

  • Autosave
  • Write comfortably in any orientation
  • Protect private notebooks with a passcode
  • Simple bullet list support
  • Turn on word count if you need to know how much you’ve written
  • Adjust your text per notebook (shade, font, size)
  • Pick a background color to color code your notebooks
  • Pick from a few paper colors
  • Fast search with contextual snippets
  • Rename each notebook by tapping its title
  • Add photos from your photo library, float them on the page
  • Resize and rotate photos, slide them around
  • Export any notebook entry via email with a single tap
  • Create a PDF version of a single entry (or all of them)
  • Optionally show timestamps on each entry
  • You can export the text of an entire notebook easily for safekeeping
  • Use the calendar to look for entries, tap to read
  • Create backups that will let you restore in case you lose your data
  • Mark entries with timestamps
