Writer's Companion is an app created by author Caleb A. Robinson to aid writers in planning novels, organizing content, and achieving 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've added a search bar to make it easier to find and update world-building items !
Ratings and Reviews
PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE!
I love this app a lot so far and it has been extremely helpful in my world building process… However, I really hate that everything automatically sorts alphabetically. Specifically for my custom notes I make for places and characters. Sometimes the note that I want first is not the note that is highest up in the alphabet. If there’s a way to turn this off, please let me know! But in general, most writing apps that have categories like this allow you to move notes around on the interface, so you can sort them how you want. Please, as someone who is paying for this app because I really genuinely enjoy it, please add this feature or get rid of the automatic alphabetical sorting 😭
I’ve only just started using this app in the last 5 days and I’ve already planned out 15 chapters and multiple characters! This has really changed my approach to planning out my stories and it’s a game changer! I love the ability to put an overview about the character’s roles and that I can add character traits like love interests and plot twists! I also love that you can include a picture of your character as well, which works to my advantage as an aspiring comic book artist! I also enjoy the ability to organize multiple stories as I often have several story ideas in the works, this app is really well formatted!
I do like this app. It is very nice, since I can’t get anything straight in my stories, and is horrible at organizing. Just one thing: please make it so you can edit things. Like after you save it. You don’t know how many times I forget to add things, or need to check other things in the app, and I don’t want to do it all over again, because you can’t delete anything either. Please fix this, because I am very forgetful and just want to correct minor mistakes to help make organizing better.
EDIT: Oh yeah just swipe to the right

You can edit! All you have to do is swipe on an item and click "edit"!
