The Enneagram for Writers provides a handy, easy-to-use reference and introduction to the Enneagram for story creators.
By breaking characters down into one of nine character types, you will have a shortcut to your characters' typical behaviour patterns that will make them grounded in real-world personalities and easily distinguished from each other.
The Enneagram for Writers holds information on the nine types, their major characteristics such as their Vices, Virtues, Basic Fears and Desires and their Holy Ideas and Ego Fixations, as well as a Project Space for storing your own characters and their Enneagram types.
Projects can now also be exported for printing or editing so characters can live beyond the confines of the app!

Cool concept, big issues
While this app is definitely a neat idea (approaching the enneagram from a writer’s perspective), it needs fine-tuning. In terms of content, for a paid app it’s pretty bare-bones. However, the major issue is with the app itself; there are obstacles to just using it that make me almost regret getting it.
The most egregious example of a UI failure is the pages that describe each type as a hero and as a villain. Some pages have paragraphs that continue down the page, but you can’t scroll. This cuts off only about a sentence or two on the worse pages, but considering this was a paid app, I expect a basic function like that would be in working order.
More of a nitpick, but the app also doesn’t properly support dark mode on phone, so while the list of key traits have a dark background, the words are unreadable because the text stays the same color. It’s readable once you click into the page, but again, paid app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
