Hemmingway Editor is an app that can be used online for free or downloaded to a computer for a fee. Its goal is to help writers strengthen their writing skills by identifying sentences that are hard to read, phrases and words that could have a simpler alternative, adverbs, and passive voice. It lights up potential problem areas in different colors so that they can be identified at a glance. It also shows the grade level that is required to understand the content based on the vocabulary and writing style. It includes basic text formatting and a writing mode so that users can both write and edit in the app.
