    I originally bought my iPad to work on writing stories easily and on the go. Although, I have been having trouble finding a good app for writing. Any ideas for a good writing app that's not very expensive? (For example, Pages) Thanks in advance! :D

    You might want to check out either iA Writer or Writings, both of which are simple word processing apps. I personally use Writings and love it. And both sell for $4.99 in the App Store. Good luck with the stories! :D
