I make no qualms about it. I have never felt like I was a strong writer. Working with the written word was never my strong suit in school and don’t get me started on my lack of spelling skills. Had it not been for spell check and Google being invented, I would be sunk! Therefore, I am constantly searching for any application that can help me overcome my writing deficiencies. Without further adieu, here are five writing assistant apps or websites to help you write better.

1) Grammarly

Grammarly is one of two on this list that I can highly recommend. Personally, I have a Premium subscription, and I don’t know what I would do without it. I also know several others here at Cube Creative use it as well.

A bit about Grammarly

Grammarly touts itself as a cloud-based software application for grammar checking, spell checking, and plagiarism detection.

With Grammarly, your writing becomes faultless and simple by eliminating minor errors such as including a hyphen, comma, capital letter, and so on. It also features an AI-powered writing assistant that assists you in writing properly, without errors and using succinct words at the appropriate times.

Not only that, but it also allows you to work on any platform without interruption and corrects you every time you compose emails, send a tweet, and so on. Grammarly's Chrome plugin is just excellent and lightweight for all of your writing requirements.

2) Hemingway App

If you want to increase the readability of your writing, Hemingwayapp is arguably the best software for the job currently available on the market. It is also one that I have personally used and still use and highly recommend to clients and friends.

The beauty of the site is that it assigns a readability rating to your content. Phrases marked in red are incredibly thick and overly complicated for the reader to comprehend; when a term is highlighted in purple, a shorter and much easier sentence may likely be used in its stead; and phrases highlighted green demonstrate a passive voice.

3) GrammarLookup

GrammarLookup uses artificial intelligence to check for spelling, grammar, and style errors; its user-friendly interface and an extensive library of grammar and punctuation checking capabilities make it a good proofreader.

The best feature of this tool is that it can be utilized online without any registration. Simply copy and paste the text, then click the Lookup button, and you're done!! You found the mistakes (grammar, spelling, and style flaws), so go through each one and repair them.

2) ProWritingAid

ProWritingAid is similar to Grammarly in that it offers a variety of writing styles. You may select from various writing styles, such as blog posting, academic writing, business writing, or a basic general writing style.

Although the extension is free, the desktop version is not. However, this should suffice for Blogs, Email, and Facebook.

3) WhiteSmoke

WhiteSmoke is a completely integrated program that is the cutting-edge English writing tool for identifying errors through enhancing user experience and knowledge advancement. It also employs Natural Language Processing with AI (Artificial Intelligence) and different algorithms to evaluate documents, find mistakes, and make the best suggestions possible.

WhiteSmoke is accessible on a number of different platforms. Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, Opera, Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS are all supported. If you commit a grammar mistake, WhiteSmoke's grammar checker will provide you with an easy-to-understand explanation. The grammar checker also checks for a wide range of grammatical rules.

The spelling checker ensures that you are using correctly spelled words in the relevant context, as well as any homophones. The punctuation checker works by comparing your sentences to its vast database of errors, words, and sentences; an algorithm compares this to what is in the database, and an AI is used to repair the punctuation and writing style.

4) Ginger

Ginger allows you to write original content and embellish it using the Sentence Rewriter tool. The software employs Natural Language Processing to increase written communication and writing efficiency. It also has a grammar checker and punctuation tools discover and repair grammar errors automatically. This allows you to write quicker and better. Furthermore, it is available on various platforms, including a mobile app, a desktop app, a web application, etc.

5) PaperRater

PaperRater is a free web-based grammar and spelling checker designed specifically for students to use while reviewing their papers.

Features:

  • It is driven by artificial intelligence and offers cutting-edge grammatical checking for content
  • Plagiarism detection using an originality score that indicates the amount of text or percentage of your content that is unique
  • While writing, the vocabulary builder gives different words, phrases, explanations, and examples to help you enhance your English abilities
  • An automated scoring system that provides an approximate estimate of what you may score in your work
  • Grammar and spelling checker, feedback and writing guidance, real-time and straightforward results with an automatic proofreader

Conclusion

To produce professional and error-free material, everyone needs a good grammar checker, proofreader, or plagiarism checker tool. These tools can assist you in increasing your efficiency, saving you time, and helping you to become a better writer.
