Dabble FAQ

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. Since Dabble is so easy to use, it’s a great program for young children or anyone less comfortable with technology. Dabble also has all the integrations and features to help published authors keep multiple book projects on track, share manuscripts with editors, and more. Poetry, screenplays, or notes for college also work well with Dabble, we support all forms of writing!

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.
