Top 10 Best Poetry Writing Apps to Learn Poetry Writing on Android
Want to learn poetry writing? Learn to read first! But where will you find amazing poetry for reading? Below is a list of top 10 best poetry apps for the cause. But this doesn’t end on reading poetry only. You can also learn to write poetry with these 10 best poetry writing apps for Android.
1. Poetry from Poetry Foundation
The Poetry from Poetry Foundation has a fun way for you to search for poems. Once you’re on the app’s main page, shake your phone and the poem wheel will spin showing you the random topic it’s chosen for you. You can either do that or you can just tap on the spin button at the top right.
In the Find Poetry tab at the bottom, you can also search for poems by mood, subject, poet, or audio. The poetry app also has a favorite folder where you can save all your favorite poems for quicker access later on.
Each search result gives you over 20 results for you to choose from, so you won’t be able to complain about lack of options.
2. Daily English Poems – Poets and Poetries
Just as the name states, with Daily English Poems you have the chance to read poems every day. You don’t even have to worry about remembering since the app includes a daily poetry notifications feature. This feature will make sure that you always get your daily dose of poetry.
It also consists of the poem of the day, but if it’s not what you’re looking for, the app can also offer you other random poems. The app has a sharing feature alongside every poem so you can quickly send it to family and friends.
If you see a poem you like, you can also put it in your favorites folder as well. The poem app has a black and white design to it that gives it a look you usually don’t find.
This Poetry app may not have a long list of poems like the previous apps, but I think you’ll like the ones it does have. You can choose from poems such as Memories, The Cafe, Writing Destiny, Faith, The Broken Wings, First Flight, The Dying Soul and more. When you first open the app, you can either read the poems or have the poetry app create one for you.
When the app creates one for you, you’ll need to choose whether it’s for a girl or boy and some keywords. These keywords will describe the other person’s personality, and that will help the app create a personalized poem. Once the poetry app makes the poem, you can send it through an app you already have installed on your phone.
4. Poems for All Occasions – Love. Family and Friends
With Poems for All occasions, you get just that, poems for the special occasions that come up every once in a while. You can find poems for events such as graduation, birthdays, new year, good luck, new baby, sorry, sympathy mother’s day, father’s day, Easter, Halloween, and many more.
You can choose from over 20 categories, and when you find the perfect poem, you can share it on social network apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, and more. There is also a copy button beside each poem and then paste on elsewhere, on your WhatsApp status for example.
To access all the poem categories, tap on the hamburger icon on the top left and choose the one you want. The poetry app is straightforward to use and great for beginners.
5. Urdu Nursery Poems
Urdu Nursery Rhymes is a different kind of poem app than the rest. Since kids like to watch cartoon videos that read, this poem app teaches kids poems but with entertaining videos.
It features some of the most popular nursery rhymes such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Five Little Monkeys, Nani Teri Morni, Chuk Chuk, and Humpty Dumpty. The Urdu poetry app doesn’t have any extra features to confuse you with, just pick a video and tap on the play button.
6. Wings – Poems
Wings is a poetry app with an immaculate design that makes the app work even faster. At least with this poetry app, you won’t have to deal with lagging. You can read poems from poets such as E.E. Cummings, Edgar Ellen Poe, John Keats, Langston Hughes, Robert Browning William Blake, William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, and more!
Get quick access to your favorite poems thanks to the Favorites folder so that you can have time for the more important things. So far the poetry app only lets you share the poem on Twitter, but hopefully, it will add more options soon. To add a poem to your favorite folder, just tap on the heart icon at the bottom right of each poem.
7. Kids Poems
Kids Poems is another excellent poems app for kids. Unlike the first poems app for kids, this one not only shows kids an entertaining video but it also shows them the lyrics so they can sing along. When you first launch the poem app, it will automatically start playing a video, the Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round to be exact.
The buttons to either go back, pause or move forward are at the bottom of your display. If you want to look for a particular poem, tap on the three vertical dots at the top right. You can choose poems such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Hey Diddle Diddle, Incy Wincy Spider, Head Shoulder, and more!
8. Shakespeare Complete Works
Shakespeare is one, if not, the most famous poet out there. So, if you’re a big fan of Shakespeare then the Shakespeare Complete Works is a poetry app you must have. This app includes all 37 plays, 34 poems, 154 sonnets, quotes, and quotations written by Shakespeare.
The poetry app has a user-friendly interface and the content is very easy to find. You can read famous plays such as Hamlet, King Lear, Antony, and Cleopatra, Coriolanus, Macbeth and many more. The app may not have the nicest design but it’s the content that matters.
9. Poetry Book
With Poetry Book, you don’t waste time finding poetry since the second you open the app it shows you all the authors the app has to offer. For example, you read poetry from authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Dylan Thomas, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Henry Lawson, Emily Dickinson, John Keats, Maya Angelou, Langston Huges, Philip Larkin, and many more.
You won’t have any trouble finding your favorite author since they are all in alphabetical order. It would have been nice if the app has a search bar so you wouldn’t have to swipe to find an author, but the list isn’t endless, so you don’t have to swipe too much.
The poetry app also has the option to increase or decrease the size of the text, so it’s easier to read, and you can also save any poem to your favorites folder.
10. Poet’s Assistant
The last app on the list of best poetry writing apps is called Poets Assistant. This app has more tools to assist the poet than actual poems. For example, it features a rhyming dictionary, pronunciation dictionary, a thesaurus, a dictionary, and a read out loud feature.
This last features read out loud anything you add to your notebook so you can see if it needs any changes or not. With this poetry writing app, you’ll have all the tools you’ll need to make a good poem that everyone will like.
You know what they say, “There’s an app for everything” and that includes poetry. These are the best poetry reading and poetry writing apps that I considered to be the best but you might have a different opinion.
