Writing Dynamo is a web-based text editing tool for students and writers. The webpage helps users store, organize, and draft new written work, all in one place. The interface is simple, allowing users to type in the website’s own basic word processing window, or upload their work from another program like Microsoft Word or Apple’s Pages. Once uploaded, Writing Dynamo scans the document for errors in spelling, grammar, and style. Users receive basic summations of areas in which their writing needs improvement, as well as feedback on which parts of the writing were well executed. Feedback is also provided directly on the document, showing users where and how errors occurred, offering suggestions for a variety of word choices, and underlining spelling mistakes. Users may also click on correction marks to receive more information about what type of error was made and how to avoid making it again. Writing Dynamo is a great first line of defense for proofreading papers, essays, or creative work for any user, but due to the moderate reading and writing requirements, the app is recommended for users 8 an up.
