Dabble FAQ

Our pricing model reflects our commitment to improving our product. By using a subscription model, we can continue to improve Dabble with a focus on what’s best for you as an author, instead of what will convince you to upgrade (adding features for the sake of adding features). Dabble offers Cloud Backup and Sync across all your devices, a huge value to protect the precious words you write.


You also get continued updates and improvements as part of your subscription.

Dabble is designed for everyone writing a novel. Whether it’s your first time writing for fun or you’re a professional author, Dabble has features you’ll enjoy.
