Phraseology – A Writing App that Offers Text Analysis Tools

Screen Shot 2014-04-03 at 2.39.38 PM Phraseology is an iPad app that doesn’t look like much more than a simple word processing app until you explore all of its handy little features. Phraseology provides a clean interface for creating documents. Once you’ve started creating a document you can take advantage of helpful editing and analysis tools built into the Phraseology app. Those tools include highlighting of the parts of speech in your document, a reading level indicator, and text arrangement tools.

When you have a document open in the Phraseology app you can tap a “target” icon to have nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, determiners, prepositions, and conjunctions highlighted throughout your document. You can choose to have one or all of those parts of speech highlighted in your document. Tap the “i” icon while viewing your document and you will see an analysis of the reading level of your document, a word count, and a break down of the frequency with which you used the various parts of speech in your document. Rearranging the text in your document is a simple matter of choosing a line and dragging it up or down (cut and paste is not required).

Documents completed in Phraseology can be sent to your Google Drive or Evernote account where you can then share them as you would share anything else in those accounts. You can also share Phraseology documents via email or Airdrop.
