Over the last several years, the market for writing software has seen an increase of apps for aspiring and seasoned writers alike. No longer are they constrained to using Microsoft Word or other bulky word processing apps to write their story; instead, they have the ability to try out low-cost programs designed specifically to fit their needs.
A lot of times, an app arrives on the market because the developer wasn’t happy with what was available, and in turn, decided to create their own in hopes of solving problems they faced from existing apps. That’s exactly what happened in 2003, which led to the creation of Mac-only Storyist.
