The Brainstormer – Spin a Wheel of Story Starters

Screen Shot 2013-01-03 at 8.18.47 AMBrainstormer is an app that started out as a website in 2009. The web version has been replaced the the iPad app that quickly generates story starters for you. The basic Brainstormer app has three wheels of words and themes that you can spin. You can spin each wheel separately until you have a combination of words that you think you can use. When you have selected a story starter you can share it with others through email, Twitter, or Facebook.  That’s all there is to the basic Brainstormer app. You can add more words and themes to the app through in-app purchases of “character creator” and “world builder.”

Brainstormer is currently free although I don’t know how long that will last as it previously cost $1.99 USD. Brainstormer could be a handy app to have when you’re trying to come up with creative writing prompts for your language arts students.
