Reading Time: 3 minutes

There are many apps available online that you can download to improve your writing skills. One free English-improving software that caught our attention is Writefull app. Relatively new in the market, Writefull is a lightweight, feature-rich app with an intuitive user interface. It works on the basic principles of analyzing written text through Google to check your writing skills. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to use Writefull application.


  • Based upon your operating system, download either the MAC OS X or Windows compatible app


  • When the application is downloaded, launch Writefull app and follow the onscreen instructions to install it.


  • Upon first launching the Writefull app, you would need to register yourself for free. Enter your email address, and new password, and click Register.


  • You should receive an email with the activation link after you read the following message. Make sure to open your email from Writefull and click the link inside it to activate your membership.


  • Writefull application takes a Google approach to search for no more than 5 selected words at a time and see how many queries for the exact same words are generated on Google. Usually, the higher the number of queries, the better the writing. To check the number of results, select text in your browser or Word application and press CTRL + SPACE. Here, we have selected “number of queries” as an example phrase to search. Now click the top left icon to see the frequency of your selection. Please note that the Google Books mode is turned on by default and in order to turn on the Web mode, you would have to purchase credits from the app’s website.


  • It shows 10,142 results.


  • Now let us reword our search phrase to “number of results” and again run the analysis for the frequency. Now it shows 18,379 results. This number is higher than the previous phrase, and hence is more likely to be acceptable.


  • If you click the middle icon, you would see how the application has searched and brought up sentences to use the same phrase that we have highlighted. This gives us an idea of how the phrase can be used up in sentences to compare them of how we are currently using it.


  • You can also check the frequency of two or more ways of writing something by entering two phrases and comparing their number of results. This can help you determine which one is better to use.
