#26Tech | A-Z POST INDEX: Apps for Writers and Creatives

Here is the index to the full 26 post series of A-Z technology – tools and apps for writers and other creatives. You can also find these posts under the #26Tech tag.

An additional index post today will publish a full A-Z Listing of all the apps mentioned throughout the series.


#26Tech was a series of A-Z themed technology posts published in April 2014, through the 2014 Blogging from A to Z Challenge. On this website you will find these posts by searching for the tag: #26Tech.


If these posts also fell on at the end of the post week, they also were included as a #52Tech post – this is a weekly series of posts on technology begun January 2014.

Some posts have supplementary posts on the same topic, showing how I use Evernote. These posts fall into the series of #E4W or #Evernote4Writers book to blog semi-weekly posts.

Some of the longer posts profiling more than one app also have an associated Listly list. Feel free to browse that list, vote on your favourites or add your own apps to the list.

  1. Great List ! I’m on the android system and a must have is the free Word Doc app and Drop Box. They’ve both helped me when I had to leave town and finish a quick assignment.

  2. Had no idea there were those kind of apps. I must let me SIL know. She’s a published children’s author. The word count app…do you use that on the computer or only on a phone or ipad?

    Wrapping up by visits/comments for a-z, as I missed a few days being able to visit the 5 per letter. Am also continuing with a-z in May

    1. Hello Sandy.

      The word count apps have their systems in the title – most are mobile – either Android or iOS. For wordcounting on the desktop I personally use the good project stats functions in my writing software of choice – Scrivener. For big marathons of writing I track via spreadsheets, because I like to see graphs also. Hope this helped.
