cut-ups helps creative writers find inspiration through the well-known analog method, the cut-up technique. Used by writers and artists for centuries, the cut-up technique involves physically cutting up or rearranging text from oneself or other sources to create new material.

Now in a faster, digital format, the cut-ups app allows users to swipe and tap through random text fragments, creating endless possibilities of writing prompts and ideas.

  • Think outside the box and boost your creativity by cutting up your text to create something brand new.
  • Import your own texts and writing directly into the app or import text from news articles, websites, or uploaded files.
  • Take inspiration from the physical world around you. Scan text from handwritten writings, books, newspapers, magazines, and more with your camera.
  • Organize your texts into collections and efficiently keep track of all your work.
