Writing well takes a lot of time and energy for most people. Today, the pace and speed at which one is required to write can be daunting. So the question you might be thinking about is what apps out there can help me write better?

The truth is there are no shortcuts to good writing. No app can substitute the fundamentals of readable writing.

If you don’t have an editor or a second pair of eyes to proofread your writing it can get tedious to reread the same document over and over.

Fortunately, writing apps can help give you a fresh perspective on your writing and editing. Writing apps can act as a filter. Each time you process your writing using a different app you notice different things.

Proofreading and editing your writing with these different apps can get you a fresh perspective since the user interface provides a new experience of looking at the same document and different app algorithms may point out different areas of your writing to be improved.

Editing and Proofreading Writing Apps

A great place to start with the Hemingway Editor. This free app will help point out long sentences and the use of passive voice. It also gives you a readability score.

After a scan with the Hemingway editor head over to ProWritingAid (which is similar to Grammarly) to scan grammar and style.

You can also use Grammarly within the browser to catch typos while working in WordPress, Gmail, Word docs, and more.

Writing App for Outline and Structure

Organize your writing with a proper outline and structure is one of the most important steps in the writing process. If you’re on a Mac Omni Outliner by Omni Group can help you organize the perfect outline across all your Apple devices.
