Story Tracker makes keeping track of your submitted stories, novels, and articles easy. Never wonder again where or when you submitted a story. The information is all right there on your iPhone or iPod touch!

Whether you’re a working freelance writer, a hobbyist, or something in-between, Story Tracker is a valuable addition to your writing toolbox. Many magazines, journals, or other markets for your work don’t allow simultaneous submissions. When you’re juggling dozens or even hundreds of stories, it’s easy to make an embarrassing mistake. Keeping track of it all can soon become a nightmare.

Can’t remember the maximum word-counts for a particular market, or whether they’re open or closed to submissions this week? Drop by their website from within Story Tracker to check submission guidelines. If it seems like an eternity since you’ve heard back about that novella you sent out, you may be right. Use Story Tracker to check how long submissions have been out to market, and send a quick query email off to the editor.

Here’s what you can do with Story Tracker:

•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.
