☑️  Hemingway App


This app does a few fancier tricks than other apps, and I’ll tell you why. Hemingway corrects sentence structure and syntax. It highlights sentences in different colours, for example: 


🟡 Yellow highlighted sentences show lengthy, complex sentences. 

🔴 Red highlight shows dense and complicated sentences. 

🟣 Purple highlights words that can be changed to a simpler choice. 

🔵 Blue shows weakening phrases. 

🟢 Green shows passive voice.  


☑️  Ginger Software


Here is another grammar checker ✅ — because let’s be honest, who doesn't want another grammar checker? Ginger works in the same way that Grammarly does but it offers different features like choosing your dialect — 🇬🇧UK, 🇺🇸US, or UK/US. A sidebar reveals common grammar rules such as “What is a verb?” This tool is also available in a free version and a paid premium version. Try it out and see what you think!


☑️  OneLook Reverse Dictionary


Now this right here is a great tool to use. OneLook is a powerhouse of resources all in one 📚 This tool gives you definitions, usage examples, related words, separates words by nouns, adjectives, adverbs and verbs. OneLook can even answer basic questions such as, “what is the capital of Canada?” 🇨🇦 This tool is an incredible timesaver.  


☑️  Wordtune


Now this is an amazing tool for writing! Wordtune can rephrase and rewrite your sentences! 🤯 With the free version you have a synonym tool, and it can translate different language text into English 📖 This is a gamechanger if you are struggling with some of your writing and you can’t think come up with a different way to word something. Sometimes your writing starts to get monotone and looks the same, but this helpful app sparks some new life into your boring old sentences.
