Tools I haven't tried

  • After the Deadline promises to be a better spellchecker and grammar checker. I haven't tried it but it does have a demo section on the site.
  • Hemingway App is a much-loved product for looking at your writing style, detecting things like weak verbs, complex words, and other things that make your writing harder to read. It includes a reading level calculator.
  • Readable is another product I haven't tried, but it appears to do roughly the same things as After the Deadline and Hemingway.
  • Wonderdraft is a fictional map creator.
