iPhone apps have become quite famous after this wonder gadget has hit the market. There is an app for everything.

This is possible because there are several apps in the market now that helps writers to express their thoughts with ease without having to sit in front of a computer or laptop.
My Writing Nook
This one is a simple application that brings together all the basic features of a word processor. Basic features required for writing like web sync, word count, protection though password, auto save and document organization are all available with this application. If you do not have a need for any advanced features, then this could be a good option.
Derek Lyons’ Notably
Just like My Writing Nook, Notably is a good word processing application as well. It has a splendid combination of interface and layout. If you have to write down notes or even stories, Notably is an ideal application for your purpose. This application however lacks in back up options and hence the overall experience might suffer. However, there are options like mail, subfolder organization and password protect.
Misoft’s Writer’s Studio

Bubblesort Laboratories’ iJournaler

Floreat Books’ AuthorJotter
If you want to quickly jot down ideas, notes and anything else, this application would help you greatly. It serves the purpose of a note taking device.
