WriteTrack lets writers track their submissions on multiple writing projects from submission all the way through to project acceptance and publication and every point in between. It doesn’t matter whether you submit to an agent, publisher, magazine, or any other market. WriteTrack can keep track of any type of market you deal with as a writer. Now, with WriteTrack, you can carry all your writing project submission information right in your iPhone or iPad so that you can view or update the information any time you want.

Main

But that’s not all! WriteTrack even allows you to keep track of the income from each submission and the app automatically tallies up the income from each submission to give you income totals based on project or market. That way, you can figure out which of your projects does better financially, and make decisions as to which projects to market/submit more. The income figures also allow you to figure out which markets are most lucrative for you personally so you can concentrate on those markets.

WriteTrack also lets you see all the submissions for a given project and the response for each submission. Since some agents, publishers, magazines etc. don’t allow simultaneous submissions, this allows you to easily see which projects are currently submitted to a market so you can avoid simultaneous submissions.

Finally, the app organises your workflow via several different tabs/screens. You have separate screens to enter information about projects, markets, and submissions and this allows you to quickly get an overall view of each of these sections. If you are interested in a particular project or market or submission, it’s just a couple of taps to drill down to the information you are interested in.
