For those who want to keep track of their story submissions on their iPhone and iPod, Andrew Nicolle has just updated his Story Tracker app for writers.
I have the app on my iPhone but haven't had a chance to really check it out thoroughly because I'm not submitting short stories/articles right now. According to the Storytracker Web site, here's what you can do with the app:
- Check the status of your stories, markets, and submissions at a glance.
- Use the index to jump through long lists of stories and markets fast.
- Add or remove stories, markets and submissions with ease.
- Add details for each story, including title, word-count, genre, and notes.
- View total income earned for each story.
- 'Trunk' stories to hide them from the story list when creating submissions.
- View the submission history for each story, sorted by date.
- Add details for each market, including title, genre, editor and more.
- Use the embedded web-browser to quickly check on market websites.
- Launch email or phonecalls directly from market details.
- Log whether a particular market is open or closed to submissions.
- Closed markets are hidden from the market list when creating submissions.
- Quickly check whether you already have a submission at each market.
- View submission history for each market, sorted by date.
- View response times for each submission.
- Add details for each submission, including story, market, and sent/response dates.
- Log whether a market has rejected, bought, or published a story submission.
- Store income earned for each submission.
- Statistics show totals for: stories, markets, and submissions, stories that have never been submitted, or have been abandoned (ie trunked), submitted stories still out to market, rejections, sales, and publications.
- income earned.
- Always remembers what screen you were looking at last.
- Saves changes on exit, or when interrupted by a phonecall.
- Database backup, restore, import and export over WiFi to your computer's web browser.
