#4 Product of the DaySeptember 07, 2017

    Pros: 

    Does what suggested.

    Cons: 

    The bot is weak in it's suggestions in my opinion. Understanding context is hard to automate. Also prepare to reformat your entire post.

    It's handy but would rather prefer an actual human to do this task. Perhaps illiciting an emotional response could segway into this type of premium offering where an actual human was involved. When writing I'd also like to get feedback on revision, grammar and overall general advice when paying for this service. I dont see myself using it all that often while missing out on those other necessary revisions.

    Trell West has used this product for one day.
  • Pros: 

    Improves my writing at an affordable price

    Cons: 

    400 word limit

    Boost Editor is a handy tool to have for any writing. The editor has a fruitful amount of synonyms to help 'boost' your writing. Highly recommended to all content marketers.

Hello Product Hunt! Thanks for hunting us, Sujan! Two years ago, we were writing a daily email for students. The articles we wrote were designed to hit the right emotions. We’d spend hours sitting there, trying to choose the right words to make sure that it would. One night, we decided there was an easier way - use AI to tell us which words are better. So, we built the Boost Editor - as the intellectual Iron Man suit for writers - A tool to augment your already incredible writing ability - to make you faster, stronger, and more impactful. Here’s how it works - Copy and paste your text (less than 400 words) out of whatever writing tool you use - Analyze your text to see what emotions your writing is eliciting - Pick your target emotion (don’t know what emotion does what? We got you covered) - The Editor will highlight words that have synonyms to increase your target emotion’s rating - Review the suggestions - The Editor will never change anything without your say-so. - Words with a (+) sign will increase your target emotion, words with a (-) will decrease. - Re-analyze to see the impact of the word changes on your target emotion - One-click copy that masterpiece out of the editor and send it on it’s way. One more thing - since we built this for everyone we designed a pricing model that everyone can afford. Instead of a subscription model, the Boost Editor uses a utility model - you only pay for what you use. You can Boost a piece of content for just $1.50. For a limited time, we're offering extended free access to the Editor - just sign up today and the free credits will be waiting for you. We can’t wait for you to try it out and look forward to hearing what you think!

@Sujan Patel Thank you for hunting the Boost Editor! We love your content and it's been incredibly helpful in the early days of Boost Linguistics. Hoping everyone enjoys using our new tool.

I like the idea, but the price is a little too steep for people who do lots of writing. Why do these type of apps cost so much? Grammarly is also very expensive.

Hey @erickbarron86 - we tried to design the pricing model such that our success is tied to that of our users - that the more content you're creating, the more successful you are. If you do find that you're creating more content than the pricing model allows, we are working on a subscription model for users that spend $100 or more per month. Thanks for letting us know !

Is this a chrome plugin? Or do I need to copy / paste everything I write into your portal?

@swetzequity Hi Zach, we just released a Chrome plugin that will speed up the process of accessing the editor. No matter where you are, it will open the editor in a new tab. You can find it here: https://chrome.google.com/websto... Would you like an extension in which the editor follows you in every text box like Grammarly? We can certainly work on building this out.

@jefnwk I would very much prefer it to function more like Grammarly (i never use the tools that require me to leave my email or doc). Also, while I appreciate the effort for the 'pay as you go' pricing.. I would prefer a simple subscription... maybe you could offer one "emotion" for free, and pay a subscription to access them all? That would certainly give people the experience of the product and entice them for more.

@swetzequity Zach, that is certainly an interesting idea, this way we can lower the per action price a bit. We take all feedback very seriously and please know that it has been logged and will be brought up in our next dev meeting. We'll get right on the development of a full extension!

@jefnwk @swetzequity I agree Zach.

Have you built your own text analysis system or are you using a third party provider like Google, Amazon, IBM, etc?

@erionv We are using one of the big three for the analysis. The suggestions are provided by us. Hope that helps!
