Designed by Liternauts for iOS, Android, Kindle, and Mac, the Writing Challenge allows students from ages 7 to 14 to enjoy writing in the guise of an engaging, interactive game. The app provides a prompt to get students started in writing a story. Then, every minute, the app supplies another prompt to add new ideas, words, characters, sentences, places, or actions to the plot. Students who have a difficult time getting started with creative writing assignments will be motivated by the fast-paced, game-like approach of this app—and in the end, they’ll have been inspired to write an entire story. Costs: $2.99, iOS; $1.89, Android; $1.99, Kindle; $3.99, Mac
