There are several great tools on the market for helping you improve your writing readability. One of the better ones I have found is the Hemingway App.

With the Hemingway App which is also available on your desktop/laptop, making sure your writing is easy to read and understand is a snap!

Let's look at the app through the Internet version for ease of use.

How to find the Hemingway App

Easy enough. Go to hemingwayapp.com.


When you get there, you are right on the home page of the desktop version and can begin checking your writing immediately!

In the example shown, you can see that some text is highlighted. These are "problem" areas which could make your writing harder to read and understand. Remember, if your readers have a hard time making it through your first paragraph, you will lose them!

So what does all this mean? Well, the Hemingway App, tells you exactly what is wrong with your writing.

Well, now that we know what the problem is, how do we fix it?

Hi Karin. Is this just a grammar app or does it include a spell check as well?

Good question. It appears to just check grammar because I have not seen it highlight any spelling errors...

Okay, so we would probably need to use Grammarly as well. Thanks Karin.

I write in Site Content and do their spell check, etc. and then copy to Hemingway for any other clean up. It can be a bit of a pain, but in the interest of being clear in my writing, it is well worth the extra step, in my humble opinion. :)

Best wishes,
Karin 😁

I purchased and have been using the desktop version of Hemingway Editor for a few years. The major difference between the desktop and online versions is the ability to save and export documents.

That sounds like a very good feature, Glen. I'm an old fashioned copy and paste kinda gal, so I do my "exporting" that way! :)

Could you give me the link to the site, or website address either would work.
Does it cost much to buy? Thanks Wayne

Interesting product, and the price is right.

I have a love/hate relationship with Grammarly, because I am a poor speller and Texas is where I learned to communicate. We have as do all regions, our own acceptable way of expressing ourselves.

This is an app that might help there. Also when you have lived as long as I have, writing in the past tense is reflective of my memories.

It would be helpful to have help with that as well.

Thanks for the information,
Sami

Hi Karin, this looks pretty easy to use. Yoast gives a similar experience but I think the Hemingway app maybe a little easier. Thank you for sharing.

You're welcome. I've never used Yoast, but I have enjoyed using the Hemingway app to fix up some of my writing. :)
