Dabble Review

Dabble review is one of the newest betting apps on the market. Its social community, bet feed and banter chat service bring punters together to have fun.

On its homepage, Dabble claims to be 'like Scrivener without the learning curve.' It treats a novel not as a huge glob of text, but as a mosaic of chapters and scenes (and parts for plotters). Each is separate and can be moved around independently.

Auto-Focus Mode

Auto area AF mode chooses the focus point based on contrast differences and may not always be able to lock on your subject. When shooting groups of people for example, your camera could focus on a shirt or hand instead of their eyes. This is why it is always best to take control and use Single-Point or Dynamic AF-Area Mode for your focusing needs.

Both Dabble and Chapterly offer the same writing features including cloud syncing, auto-saving, split and join scenes, Plot section, and Story Notes section. However, dabble has additional resources like an online community, articles and forums, and grammar checker powered by ProWritingAid.

Both dabble and Chapterly have a free two week trial for you to try them out before you decide to buy. They also offer monthly and yearly subscriptions with the yearly one saving you 20% off.


Like most specialist fiction software Dabble treats a novel as a series of scenes (and chapters, and parts, if you're working with them) rather than one homogenous glob of text. This makes it easy to move around scenes and to see word counts for individual chapters and scenes.

As you write other interface elements fade away to leave a clean slate to concentrate on writing. You can also format text using a simple popup toolbar that can be accessed when you're not typing.

Dabble is still a relatively new bookie but has quickly built up a loyal following thanks to their unique app experience. They offer odds on a wide range of markets including Australian thoroughbred, greyhound and harness racing. They also have a social punting platform which allows punters to follow other punters bets and share their own.

Offline Mode

Dabble is a cloud-based software that can be accessed on multiple devices and platforms. It offers apps for Mac, iOS, and Windows, and your work is synchronized across each. It’s an excellent feature for writers who want to be able to recall and update their writing anywhere, no matter what device they’re using.

Its slogan is “Like Scrivener, without the learning curve,” and that’s exactly what it promises to be. Designed to be a simple writing app, it’s easy to pick up and use.

The betting market on Dabble is very impressive with a great range of international and domestic racing markets. There are also a good number of other betting markets and a next up ticker. This makes it one of the best betting apps in Australia.

Word Count Goals

Dabble offers a simple goal-setting feature that keeps writers on track to reach a daily word count quota. This is especially valuable for writers who participate in events such as NaNoWriMo. You can set a deadline and a word count goal for the entire project or a book, and it will calculate the number of words you need to write each day to meet your target.

You can also mark days you want to take off, and the system will automatically recalculate your goals for you. You can also use this feature to track event sections within your project, as well as individual chapters or events.

Dabble offers a 14-day free trial and does not ask for any payment information. This gives users plenty of time to test the software and decide if it is right for them.

Plot Points

Whether it’s the details of your character’s romantic entanglements or the fact that a witch can only be killed with water, Dabble lets you store clever notes about places in Plot Points. They function like index cards, and you can drag them into your Plot Grid at will.

A plot point is something that pushes your protagonist into conflict and changes the story’s direction. For example, in The Handmaid’s Tale, Offred meets the commander outside the Ceremony and breaks the status quo.

Both Dabble and LivingWriter offer research tools, but Dabble’s Plot Grid is more straightforward than that of its competitor. You can also use its Story Notes for research on characters, world building, or random notes and links. You can easily switch between these tools using the left-hand nav menu.
