Become a better author in just 15 minutes a day. We use writing prompts to help you:

- Start a writing habit and progress as an author
- Challenge yourself to try out new styles and genres
- Get feedback on your writing
- Find inspiration when writer's block strikes
- And even outline your novel.


Imagine prompts as workouts for your creative muscle. Just like physical exercise, prompts help you to get into shape as an author. They can be used for fun, for practice, or as inspiration for your novel.


Writing regularly helps you hone your voice and practice your writing style. And it adds up quickly. Just 50 words a day is almost 20,000 a year!

Highly recommend

This app has a LOT of convenient features. It’s very simple to use and understand. The prompts are a lot of fun and you can customize the genre and type of prompts you see. After a week of using the app I found that I was exploring other forms of writing because the prompts would be so interesting. You connect with other writers, which I find to be particularly helpful. You can download your writings very easily. I transfer all of my writings into my files so I have backup. Overall, after using the app consistently, I highly recommend it. It’s not just great for writers, its a great place for readers. There are plenty of short stories from every genre and you can leave feedback and encouragement for the writers. When I’m tired of writing I will spend a while reading work from other writers and leave words of encouragement. The writing competitions push me to try writing in new genres. I find myself on this app for hours some days, writing and browsing. The customer service is great too. I did have issues where it kept asking me to subscribe even-though I was already subscribed. I emailed the developer and they responded quickly and fixed the bug. Now the app runs flawlessly. There are no ads or anything annoying. Once you subscribe you enjoy every feature of the app without any added nuisance or pressure to purchase anything else.

Thank you so much for this review! Super appreciate the insight into how you use the app and I'm glad we got the issue fixed quick for you! If you have a moment to let me know how you backup your writings I'd love to hear it as we're looking to improve the export functionality in the app!
Have a great week!

Best Writing App Ever

Browsing around the App Store for great writing apps has been a long mission for me. There are those really expensive apps that you can never afford, those cheap apps that doesn't do anything but take your money, and free apps that doesn't even solve the problems, or fit the needs, that you're looking for. However, Daily Prompt has been meeting those every needs.

• It has a small, but helpful community

• It has contest writings to improve your weaknesses in your stories

• people are always looking to see what you write

• There are thousands of prompts to choose from

• You are able to get critical feedback from others when needed/wanted

What more can you ask for? Daily Prompt has been super helpful with getting my stories out there. And now, I can set a goal for myself to write a little something every day. I'm so looking forward in seeing how amazing this app will improve, and you should too. It is not like any app that I've seen in either a long time, or ever. Daily Prompt is the writing app you need.

If I can suggest anything for help the app along, I would like to have a setting where you can set your own writing goals, and the app will be able to accommodate you based on how specific the goal is. So instead of trying to write everyday, you can set a goal to write three days a week, or write twenty stories per month. I think that would be really awesome. <3

Thank you so much for updating your review with this new information, it's really appreciated! That last point about setting your own writing goals is a great one and something we're looking to add soon. I can't see your username so sorry if I'm talking to you already about this by email but if I'm not, drop me an email to ryan.lindsey@dailyprompt.co.uk as I'd love to create the writing goals section to exactly fit your needs!

Great feature. A few suggestions

To start, I’ve only rated it four stars because I’ve only just started using it. First of all, I’m not sure if you’re able to see when someone posted a story, but if that’s not a thing, I’d love to see it! Second of all, I’d like to see at least one more daily prompt without it being premium. I get that being able to see more is premium, but even have just one more could help so many other authors spark more creativity, like me, as I am quite picky with my prompts. I also don’t see a way to edit your prompt interests?? I wanna be able to take away or add to my interests as they change, so I don’t have to be stuck with a daily prompt I don’t like. Again, I’ve only just started using it, so I might not have seen all of the features.
I must say, I do love the ability to write your own prompts, as it can spark even more creativity and make the app appealing to others! I also love how the discussion and and feedback feature is not premium, I think it’s really useful!
I really like this app so far, these are simply friendly suggestions to make it even better!

Thank you so much for the honest review and the breakdown of what you liked/disliked - it's super useful to know and I will take it into consideration in future releases. Getting the balance of the free to paid tier is definitely a struggle but we're getting there!
