I use Hemingway Editor as a gut check for all my creative copy. It's never going to replace real eyeballs on your work, but it's a wonderful first-pass tool. Go ahead. Give your words a spin!
I even used it on the sentences above:
Grade level: 2 (Good)
Reading Time: 00:00:08
Simple, smart, user interface. Great gut-check app.
Not always accurate. Won't replace a true copy editor.
As I was used to academic writing, it was difficult for me to change my writing to more casual and simple. I did like long sentences and complex constructions but this service helped me to switch to semi-formal style needed for blog posts.
Helps to edit a final version of an essay to make it 'reader-friendly'
It doesn't work--nothing else to say.
It is not user friendly--doesn't work at all.
