Foldpass is an interesting poetry app that lets you pass haiku from one friend to the other. It plays fast and loose with the genre's rules, though.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

SparkNotes have saved many a student in need of help as they study various pieces of literature. Figuring out the subtext behind some classic pieces of work isn't always immediately obvious, and these notes can make all the difference.

That useful helping hand is now available through the SparkNotes iOS app. 50 pre-installed study guides are already available with the option of viewing hundreds of others online. These guides can then be downloaded for offline use if the user so wishes.

Numerous different works worthy of studying are included here, like Shakespeare and Orwell. Poetry and Philosophy is similarly covered along with short stories to appeal to all arts students.

Search functionality is extensive, making it easy to browse through different sections of the guides from thematic analysis to scene by scene breakdown.

There's a social element, too, with users able to share their location and what they're currently studying, thus encouraging friends to gather round for a study group session.

SparkNotes is out now and it's free to download.

Poet's Pad for iPhone Provides Mobile Muse.

Posted by Chantelle Joy Duxbury on October 4th, 2010
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

For all the would be Shakespeares out there, great news. A developer by the name of Dante Varnado Moore has got a mind to help you write all the sonnets your heart could desire with the release of Poet's Pad for the iPhone.

Poet's Pad for the iPhone is the baby brother to the iPad version released at the start of September. It includes a digital audio recorder for writers who express their art via Spoken Word or Def Poetry. It also offers idea generating tools that are designed to inspire creative expression and eliminate writers block on the go; sort of like your own digital muse in your pocket.

The App boasts of features such as a Rhyming Dictionary with more than 70,000 words, including thesaurus and dictionary functionality for finding just the right word. The major feature that they offer, however, is the 'emotion based' word and phrase generator. Using a base emotion such as Love, Hate, or Anger, for example, you can then search for and find phrases and words that fit the bill for whatever you're trying to express. You can use these phrases and words immediately for writing your poetry, or save them for later inspiration. Therefore, you can use this tool both for inspiration and organization.

Maybe you prefer dictating your poems? Poet's Pad also states that it offers a built in voice-recorder so you can make verbal notes, or practice your poetry performance.

Poet's Pad is a professional poetry writing app that allows poets to create, arrange and store all of their writings and poems in one app. Visit the Developers website for more information, or check it out on the App Store. You can also see the video below for an explanation of most of what this App offers.

For a limited time Poet's Pad for iPhone 1.0.1 is being offered at an introductory price of $1.99. That's over 65% off the regular price of $5.99 USD. The iPad version is currently on sale for $6.99, 30% off the regular price of $9.99 USD. They are available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category.
