Analyze and Improve Your Writing Skills Online With Slick Write

Analyze and Improve Your Writing Skills Online With Slick Write | iPad Digital Sandbox | Scoop.it

"Even the best writers from among us are prone to the odd mistake. Slick Write is an online tool which helps to correct and even improve your writing on a number of levels.

"Slick Write enables you to evaluate the stylistic features and potential flaws of your work, as well as giving you the ability to identify spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. Interestingly, the tool gives you an insight into the structure of your content, breaking up paragraphs and sentences in a unique, informative way.

"You can analyse the flow of your work, and assess some of the statistics which Slick Write provides for you. When using all the features in unison, it becomes relatively easy to turn an average piece of text, and turn it into a literary masterpiece.

Augmented reality allows someone to add another layer to an existing image.  For example, imagine holding your phone over a poster on the wall as if you were going to take a photo of that poster, and then instantly a video starts playing to offer you additional information about that particular poster.  Pretty cool, right?  The first time it happens, it seems like magic.

You build your slides by adding pictures, shapes and text, then customize background and slide transition. 3D text and special apparition effects are new features that help to make your slides really spectacular.

Free trial is available but even a paid version of $39 is not big money if you like the amazing software.
