Helping authors finish their novel

A feature packed online writing environment

Apollo Pad

All online, no software to install or update. Work on any machine with a web browser.

Packed with tools

Manage project timelines, outlines, characters, locations and objects, upload photos and reorganise it all as much as you need to.

Your data, your way

Import projects from PDF, Word or other formats. Export your work to PDF, ebook, Markdown, doc and more. Plus automated backups to your own personal Dropbox.

Manage your thoughts

Contextual inline notes (including to-do items, photos and videos) to help you keep your thoughts where they belong - with the writing they apply to.

Secure and private

Your work is backed up automatically to multiple locations, and we take your privacy extremely seriously. Nobody can read your work without your permission.

What authors are saying about Apollo Pad

I like this tool. It has a lot of little particles of delight.

More reasons to love ApolloPad

Auto saving

ApolloPad saves your work as you type. No more danger of losing work you've spent hours on due to a power cut.

Work everywhere

ApolloPad is entirely online. It works on your desktop, laptop, your tablet and phone.

Offline mode

Want to work on the train? Or having connection trouble? No problem. ApolloPad detects when your connection is spotty, and will save your work in your browser. As soon as the connection is back, it will save to our servers again. And it will tell you when it does all of this.

Multiple projects

You can have as many projects on the go as you need in ApolloPad. You can share characters, locations and assets between them, if you like, but otherwise they are completely independent.

Super search

We're really proud of our search engine. Rather than just show you which documents match your search terms, we show you the context of each match - you can see which paragraph matches your search.

Readability scoring

Readability is a tricky thing to get right, but ApolloPad has just the thing - readability scoring, built in to the app.


Prefer a light-coloured editor to dark? Want a nice carbon-fibre sidebar instead of the cork? Want a super-simplified interface with everything hidden until you need it? No problem, we put you in control of your editing environment.
