use office software that is original and free

What’s the big deal about free office software,” you may ask. After all, most of the computers in India do equally well with pirated versions of MS Office that cost zilch. But the idea is to use original software, so that you will have free access to all upgrades and there will be fewer chances of virus or malware attacks. We, therefore, bring you some of the best alternatives to the popular MS Office suite. Here we go. Open office is a multi platform and multi lingual office suite which can be downloaded, used and distributed for free. It is as good as MS Office and performs the entire task that the latter is designed to do. If you want to download the software, go to www.openoffice.org. It is also available on the website of SunMicrosystems (www.sun.com/software/star/openoffice/index.xml). The best part about OpenOffice is that it is compatible with all other major Office suites. So you won’t be facing any problem if you want to open documents created in MS Office.

There is another option available which is sure to intrigue you. IBM is finally gearing up to mount a serious challenge to Microsoft’s dominance in the software arena. And the challenge comes in the form of the free software called Lotus Symphony that includes a word processor, spreadsheet and presentation software. While these two Goliaths of the IT industry battle it out, it is the consumer who is likely to have the last laugh with lots of freebies coming his/her way. So download Lotus Symphony for free from http://symphony.lotus.com/software/lotus/symphony/home.jspa.

Another good alternative is ThinkFree which can be accessed from http://www.thinkfree.com/common/main.tfo. It offers 1 GB free storage and all you need to do is to create an account. After that, you are free to access its online features just as you do in Google Docs. Also, the interface for each application is similar to MS Office including the toolbars, icon and functions.

There is no dearth of users claiming that Zoho offers the best online Office suites. To confirm how much credence lies in the claims, you can start by creating you own account at the website www.hoho.com. By patronizing Zoho, you can do all that you can with Google Docs – access, edit and share documents from anywhere in the world. You can also import these with other account holders and post your documents for public viewing. Also try Zoho Wiki, an intuitive, user-friendly application that allows you to build your personal apace on the Web.

Finally, you have the Google Docs which also offers free Office suites. In fact, many software analysts have proclaimed that Google Docs can well prove to be the biggest threat to Microsoft’s dominance in the field of Office software. If you are familiar with the working of Google Docs, you are probably already hooked to the concept. Once you log in to your Google Docs account, you can import documents, spreadsheets or presentations created using any PC based program me or you may choose to create fresh ones from scratch.

Use SEND SHIELD to Wipe off Private Data

Can you think of a digital existence without e-mail attachments? We send and receive countless mail attachments every day, but are you sure that every attachment that leaves your system is cleansed of all private data? For instance, Microsoft Word has the ‘Track Changes’ option which allows users to recommend, make changes and mark their comments in the same documents in the same document. However, the final version will contain all changes /recommendations marked in the document. If this file is to be sent as attachments, the recipient will gain access to the entire ‘change’ history. Now, that is something you would not like if your primary intention is to send an edited and clean version of the file. 

Enter SendShield – the most comprehensive solution to your problem. It is basically an Outlook plug-in that scans your attachments fro tack changes, comments, hidden worksheets and formulas, embedded Excel data and much more. It any of these elements is found, the system will furnish a warning message and enable you to strip the document of all private data, not meant for other eyes. You can download a month long trial version of SendShield from http://sendshield.com. Once the download is complete and you run the wizard, the programme’s plug in will be installed in your Outlook.

This nifty tool comes in handy when you want to clear all hidden data, built into an attachment. As soon as you attach the text to the e-mail, a red bar will appear over the body text, showing a list of hidden data. All personal details in your attachment will show up in yellow. If anything, this sort of colour coded alerts makes things easier for average users. To clean up the attachment, select the hyperlink on the left of the SendShield alert and choose you cleaning option. The alert will automatically turn green indication that all hidden data have been removed.

As of now, SendShield is only compatible with systems powered by Windows XP and Vista. You will also require Office 2003 or Office 2007 to run this wonder wizard. And once the trial period is over, you will have to purchase the official version to continue with these benefits. The standard version will cost you $49.95 while you will have to shell out $59.95 for a professional copy, which comes with additional features like creation of PDF documents right from your Outlook. Best of all, it allows you to tweak around with the software features, so that you can specify what kind of hidden data need to be blocked. If you are really too concerned about privacy issues, you really need this kind of application to clean up your attachments.

Forget MS Office, Lotus Symphony 3 is Here

Microsoft Going rigorous, it is no wonder that MS Office is so expensive. But we care costs, a wide range of applications such as Word and Excel to serve professionally as well? However, in our country, the vast majority of systems using pirated versions of Office that costs almost nothing. Indeed, pirated DVDs are on sale at R 50 / or in Delhi and other metros. According to the study, Microsoft Office is one of the world of pirates. But it is not clear why people prefer buying pirated software, even if you can get free legal version of Office.

Yes, we are talking of Lotus Symphony, which is as good as MS Office and comes without any legal hitch. The pirated MS Office suite may work well initially and suit your purpose; but it will not give you access to free updates. As a result, when your system is infected with malicious spyware and Office operations are disrupted, you cannot expect any help from Microsoft’s tech support. Because, you own a pirated version of the suite and not the original one. So, it is only wise to get a free but original office suite from a reputed company like IBM rather than stick to the pirated version of MS Office. All you need is a high speed broadband connection to download Lotus Symphony from IBM’s website for free. The latest version of the software, Lotus Symphony 1.3 , is available at http://symphony.lotus.com/software/lotus/symphony/home.nsf/home.

As Lotus Symphony is compatible with all versions of MS Office you can open MS Office files in Lotus Symphony, work on them and save them back in the MS doc format. The only glitch is the heavy download time. The programme  is really huge, as any Office suite is supposed to be, and judging by the way broadband speeds are in India, it may take you hours to download and install it.

But once you are through with the installation process, this programme will prove to be a real boon.

Will Foursquare Race Past Facebook, Twitter?

With so many denizens of the contemporary society showing marked preference for mobile Internet via smart phones, a tech phenomenon like the Foursquare was bound to happen someday. Popular networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter are easily accessible if you are using a notebook or a notebook. But it is foursquare that has turned out to be the proverbial belle of the ball, especially when it comes to networking via web connected smart phones. More precisely, foursquare is about location-based social networking, where you use your Smartphone to inform your friends where you are and what you are doing. Let us say, you are hanging out at the Café Coffee Day at Connaught Place. Just Post “@coffee day, sipping cappuccino” and your purpose will be served. There is no specific text format and the choice of words depends entirely on you. So, come out of your shell and speak. Tell your significant other hat you are “Stuck in a traffic jam. “Foursquare will vouch that you are speaking ‘nothing but the truth’.

Like any other social networking site on the block, Foursquare has become popular by playing up to our sense of narcissism. At the end of the day, we need to belong and must talk about our life, even when our activities are nothing but trivial. And those are precisely the needs that Foursquare manages to fulfill. The SNS allows us to be a part of a close knit community existing in the digital world and announce our presence in style. However, Facebook or Twitter does the same and many of us keep wondering whether Foursquare will soon become redundant.

Of course, foursquare can still be unique, useful or simply a waste of time. But none of us can predict that with confidence, as the twists and turns in digital space are as gloriously uncertain as the last few over’s of IPL matches. Do you remember that period when most tech analysts used to mock Twitter? “Ha, why should I tweet humdrum details about myself,” was the constant refrain of all and sundry. Today Twitter boasts millions of users and still counting. But with 18 million Twitter users proposed by the end of this year, are people ready for yet another social networking site?

The writing on the wall is, therefore, pretty obvious. The digital world changes faster than the sand dunes in the windswept Sahara desert. And no one can be absolutely sure about the future of Foursquare until it actually takes shape. These days, we have the buzz that Facebook has started generating more Web traffic than Google. No one could have expected that to happen, but business and social networking in the digital era has become such a big enterprise that is has led to a phenomenal rise in the popularity of Facebook. So, it is quite possible that Foursquare, too, can transmogrify into something much bigger than what it is today. But its success is closely linked to that of Smartphone. If more and more people decide to start using smart phones to access the Internet, Foursquare is bound to have a smooth rise to the top.  

There is no doubt that Foursquare has all the right ingredients to attract Gen Y who are deeply into networking. Thanks to the exciting game on offer, location based networking becomes all the more thrilling as users earn points and unlock badges. In one level, you are competing with your immediate circle of SNS friends. But soon enough, the challenge widens considerably as you are pitted against the rest of the city. It is you versus the wide world out there who can also visit the same locations and bag the coveted badges and points.

Once the ecosystem of the game takes off, it can develop in unexpected ways. It is possible that Foursquare may try to add further features to its gaming and networking scenario. If the younger generation latches on to this in a big way, Foursquare will become simply unstoppable.

One must not overlook the unique business model either. Services like Foursquare and Gowalla actually add a serious value to local businesses, local business aggregators like Yelp and marketers. As their membership grow with crowd sourced real time information, they will have comprehensive information to show business owners the deeper demographics about their customer base.

However, other networking sites are keeping a close tab on current developments. Facebook has already announced that it will soon add location based antics to its plethora of services. So, there will be no dearth of competition and Foursuare may have a tough time ahead. But the guys at the helm of the new venture are those who had once promoted another location based networking site called Dogeball. It stopped operation, though, shortly after Google acquired it. However, people like Dennis Crowley and Naveen Selvadurai, the two main honchos at the helm of Foursquare, certainly don’t lack the expertise or the experience. So, one thing is for sure the networking space is going to see a lot of action in the time to come. 

Gear up as a Game Developer

Do you love coding challenges, possess an innovative mind and got loads of creative ideas up our sleeve? It is quite likely that you want to shine as a software wizard. But in case the drab backend work of business applications deters you from taking up the job, here is an exciting offer. Train as a game developer and explore the world of creative technology. Of course, the developers ruling the IT arena walk off with the Oscars ever time because they are the guys who make it all happen, who are the unsung heroes of the backstage and who seem to speak a different language altogether that mere mortals do not know. However, application development for computer, video or mobile games has a relatively low entry level across the country. Sure, your interest and enthusiasm are crucial, but you will also require skills and qualifications. The gaming industry is as competitive as any other field and it is not easy to get that first job. But if you have set your sights on the games business. We are here to help you make informed decisions. Here is an insight into the nitty-gritty of game development, the skill sets required and the possible subtypes that you may focus on as a career option.

Making games: Then and now

There was a time when individuals had just stepped into this uncharted territory. Shigeru Miyamoto, who had developed Donkey Kong, and Jordan Mechner, the creator of Prince of Perisa (the original one of 1989) are well known among avid gamers. The computing power available at that time was much less and what they created can be defined as nothing less than extraordinary. However, with today’s exponential growth in the domain of personal computers gaming is nothing short of a team effort. All that one hears today is not the name of a developer but the names of those big corporations that are into game development. Zynga, EA Games and Activision Valve are some of the key players currently ruling this market.

Skills that you need to weave the magic

There are various facets when it comes to game development and you must have a fair knowledge of the sub-domains. While a team of artists create 3D graphics and animation, programmers write complex codes that activate the action and integrate the entire interface with the gaming platform – be it a PC, Xbox or PlayStation. A set of people also work on the audio creation that includes dialogues, music and other sound effects. Then there is a unit dedicated to developing the storyline which will keep the player hooked to the game. Since playing a game only requires tapping the keyboard and moving/ clicking the mouse, it is very important to make sure that the gamer finds these activities sufficiently entertaining and pursues them for hours. What’s more, games have to be sufficiently complex to retain a user’s interest for months, if not for years. Multiplayer games are far more addictive as gamers encounter other human opponents in real time (via LAN or the Internet). And this requires another team of networking professionals who will write a code for the game to be integrated over the network.

As is evident from our discussion, if you are not a team player, professional level game development may not be the right choice for you. One must be accustomed to function in a highly collaborative atmosphere where bits and pieces of graphics or codes are put together by a team to make it a complete whole. So, if you are keen to get into game development, find out what aspect of the process suits your personality and skill sets best and put your efforts into getting better at that. 

Moreover, the old saying that academic qualification will get you nowhere is nothing but a myth. Contrary to popular belief, Bill Gates was not a high school dropout. In fact, he scored a whopping 1590 out of 1600in SAT and was pursuing studies at Harvard. He left after some time, though, as he got more involved in software development at Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems (MITS).  So, making a career choice is not easy and entails a lot of hard work.

Opportunities available in India

Game developers in India are yet to make their mark in the international domain. We are a nation of good programmers, of course. In fact, you will find many Indian developers working for gaming giants like EA Games. However, the business has not flourished much within the country and we hardly come across indigenous games developed at the local level.

The first major game from an Indian studio was AGNI, launched by FXLabs, Zapak and Sify. This was way back in 2008 but unfortunately, the market did not give three cheers to this one. The response was pretty cold, to say the least. In December, 2009 the first Nintendo DS game was developed in India at Ubisoft Studio in Pune. This took about 14 months, even though it was meant for the DS system and was small enough to fit on a 32 MB cartridge. So the amount of work required to develop something like Need for Speed is obvious.  

Do not lose heart, though. Here is some good news that will cheer you up. The Indian gaming industry was valued at $200 million in 2008. So, imagine where we will stand if we have a really good product up our sleeves. The returns from a slice of this cake can be simply huge. If a few professionals who have honed their skills abroad, can return and train a team here, things can get a jumpstart.
Additional options for developers

India still has a long way to go before receiving international acclaim for game development. However, there are some softer options available for those who want to shine in this arena. Till we come out with our own version of Halo 3 or something similar to it, we may consider the following:

Attractive games for mobile phones:

The need of the hour is to develop games which can be easily played using a small keypad and which have the potential to retain a mobile user’s interest. A classic example is the basic game Snake which come preinstalled on all Nokia handsets. Think of the design or the game play everything is so elementary that I may not have taken a great deal of programming to write this game. Yet, it has the masses looked and its popularity is escalating. Think of a concept that is simple yet intriguing and that can make your day.

Develop add-ons for games: We may not be in a position to develop a Warcraft 3 Killer. But we can write add-ons or modules for such games. The DOTA add-ons or Warcraft 3 is extremely popular and thousands of avid gamers paly it. So, the add-on market is quite huge and you can tap it strategically to get ahead.

Develop Flash games: Flash games are hot favourites among the Internet users. Although most games can be downloaded for free, players are often asked to shell out extra bucks for playing full versions. A Flash game is easier to develop than other conventional games. And they are easier to play too, so the market is not restricte4d among hardcore gamers. A lot of websites let visitors play games for free and earn revenue from the advertisements displayed.

Game development as a career is a potentially strong option in our country and there is a very huge market for it. Therefore, one who is innovative and can deliver quality products is sure to walk away with the rewards. Put on you thinking cap for great ideation and work on your technical skills. There is a fair chance that you will sprint to the number one slot among game developers in India. 

Record Computer Keystrokes Secretly with Keylogger

Before we get into the nitty gritty of what the keylogger can do, it is important to understand what exactly it does. Simply put, a keylogger is a specialized hardware that is fitted to a software programme, a keyboard cable or a keyboard. This application is used to record every keystroke made via the keyboard. It can be extremely handy for parents who want to track their children’s online activities or an employer who wished to keep a tab on an office worker.  Keylogger is also widely used by spy agencies and law enforcement organizations to access sensitive data and collect evidence.

However, like all good things in life, this programme, too, is susceptible to misuse. For instance, a hacker can use the keylogger and illegally retrieve crucial data such as personal identity information, credit card numbers, bank account details, login names and passwords. So, on the flip side, keylogging can pose a serious threat to computer users by leading to invasion of privacy, data theft and fraud. Malicious keylogging software can also infect computers via malware, spyware, viruses and the Trojan horse.

If you suspect that someone is using keylogger to retrieve vital information, opt for a good anti-spyware and anti-virus programme and also activate the firewall. Be careful when you open e-mail attachments, surf mainstream websites or download anything from the Internet. You can also get your personal computer checked by a professional to avoid such surreptitious attacks.

Key features
– Logs keystrokes and is case sensitive
– Works both in hidden and standard modes
– Registers disk changes, Internet connections, websites visited and starup/shutdown
– Watches clipboard content
– Record all print activities
– Creates screenshots quickly
– Generally stores all information in encrypted log file
– Logs can be password protected
– Can create the report in html and text format and then send it via e-mail
– Resistant to antivirus software
– Quick installation, easy usage and flexible configuration system

Who will benefit

– System administrators who keep a tab on all office computers.
– CEOs/managers who want to monitor office work.
– Parents who want to supervise their children’s online/offline activities
– Cyber café owners who want to scan what customers are doing.
– Anyone else who wants to check what’s happening in his/her absence.

How Steel Keylogger Works

This software application cannot be recognized by most of the common antivirus programmes available today and, therefore, works efficiently. Actually, this version does not connect to the Internet. So, all your data will be quite safe from malicious attacks. In order to download and use Steel Keylogger, do the following: 

– Steel Keylogger is available on several Torrent websites and the programme will contain two files – both below 40 KB in size. So, you can download it quickly and it will never weight too much on the system.

– Go through the Readme.txt file carefully to understand how the programme and its features work.

– To use the application, right-click on the Steel.exe file and select the option ‘Run as administrator’

– The process will task a while to install the programme.

– Once installed, the programme will display an interface with four partitions: A ‘Log Window’ that shows the keystrokes for the last 30 seconds, option to ‘Stop or Hide’ the programme, a checkbox to enable\disable logging the clipboard content and a status window.

– To use the programme, click on ‘Options’ and check both the boxes against ‘Hide on Startup’ and ‘Auto Startup’. You can also specify the location where you want to save the logs. Click on ‘Save Location’.

– Now, every time you computer is booted, the application will be activated, but it will be hidden from view.

– You can see detailed log report by using Notepad. To active the interface again, use the combination CTRL+SHIFT+F8.

Master Your World with RSS Feeds

If you frequent web logs, you may have come across tiny XML icons that invite you to ‘syndicate’ a particular website. Many of us ignore the message for the simple reason that we don’t know what exactly ‘syndication’ means.

The print media had long recognized the money they could make by incorporating stories from several other news sites into their own. Subsequently, it had driven more traffic to their websites and resulted into more business. But that’s not all. They could also cover a wider area a wider area than their staff reporters could. Thus began the concept and business of syndication.

When you enter the World Wide Web, you are greeted by a bulk of authors who write on a wide range of topics food, fashion, people, ideas, books, gizmos and technology trends, to name a few. But those who go online for the pleasure of reading find it extremely difficult to keep track of all their favourite blogs, unless there is an automated system to do that. This is where RSS steps in. Short for Really Simple Syndication, RSS is a quick and easy way for the Web to share stories, articles, essays and headlines from other sites. You can use news readers to scan the headlines using RSS aggregators.  

History of RSS

Netscape, the inventor of RSS, was trying to make headway into the portal business and wanted an XML format so that it can simplify the process of information sourcing and feature news stories from other websites on its own. So, the company came up with RSS .91, but dropped it when they decided to exit the portal business. UserLand Software grabbed this opportunity and decided to develop this particular version of RSS. The result was RSS .92, .93 and .94. At the same time, a non-commercial group picked up RSS and developed RSS 1.0, based on its interpretation of the original principles. UserLand eventually launched RSS 2.0.

How to read RSS feeds

RSS feeds will automatically bring updated information to your system, so that you can keep a tab on news, blogs, job listings classifieds and much more. Many websites and blogs offer RSS feeds and you can easily identify this feature by a small button that either says XML or RSS. A click on one of these buttons will lead you to a page full of codes. But in order to read the updates properly, you will require an RSS reader. Here is a step by step guide to help you.

Get a reader: Go to www.download.com and choose an RSS reader from the list featured there. Generally, the paid reads cost about $20 to $30. When you purchase the application, you have access to several other features and tools within the reader. There are two main types of RSS feed readers. Once is a standalone application for processing the RSS feeds. Simply put, it will be a totally new application that you can populate as you like. Another type of RSS feed reader is the plug-in. This application works within a programme that already exists, such as the Internet Explorer or the Microsoft Outlook.

Installation and setting up: When you launch a standalone reader, you will see a toolbar, as well as three window panes, arranged like the preview mode in Microsoft Outlook. The pane on the left displays channels or RSS feeds that you have subscribed to. You can also organize these into folders or categories. The upper right panel will show up the list of articles within the channel that you have selected. The content of the article is displayed in the lower right panel. To change the channel groups, click the drop down box located just below the menu. You will get a brief description in the lower right side. Click on the link given there to load the complete text. You can also configure the application so as to get an e-mail message whenever an interesting article is published. Most will display a pop-up window over the taskbar that will show the channel name, article URL and article title. You can also plug in a standalone reader within existing applications like the Internet Explorer or the Outlook.

Add channels and channel groups: Many RSS readers come preloaded with channels. However, you may like to add your own channel to this list. There are several programmes that allow you to create a new channel group for organizing your channels better. To add a channel, visit the ‘CNET RSS’ page and click the ‘All Review’ link. Right click or use CTRL+C to copy the URL from the address bar of your browser, which will show a page full of XML code. Now, go back to your news reader, choose the category where you want to place the new subscription and select ‘New’ or ‘New Channel’ from the ‘File’ menu. In most cases, the URL you copy should automatically be pasted into the URL field in the ‘New Channel’ wizard. Or else, you can cut and paste the URL yourself.

Customise: When you subscribe to several articles from various feeds, it becomes difficult to find specific  information. RSS feed readers include tools just for this purpose – to filter such articles. The ‘Filter’ tool looks for articles that contain specific keywords. This can also be done in labeled search. Type a keyword in the ‘Search’ or ‘Filter’ bar to use this feature. Some RSS readers can set a watch, a way of automatically searching through all your incoming feeds for specific keyword. Here is a step by step to set up a watch:

– Open the ‘File’ menu, select ‘New’ and choose the option ‘new Watch’.

– Now, give it a title in the dialog box and enter a search term in the keyword field.

– Click on ‘Add’ to put the search term into the keyword list.

– Click on ‘OK’ to activate your watch. It will appear in the ‘Watch list’ located in the left panel. The ‘Watch’ panel will show the number of articles that come up with each keyword.

– Click any ‘Watch’ to see the articles it has managed to capture.

Purne you feed: If you do not want to be overwhelmed with articles and content, it is important to prune your feeds. In order to delete a feed, just delete the title and you RSS reader will stop looking for similar information. 

Analyse and improve you writing with PaperRater

Before we get down to using PaperRater, we will tell you more about the magic that this tool can help you weave. Well, it is nothing short of magic, especially if grammar and error-free writing are not your forte, and drafting college papers or professional documents give you nightmares. PaperRater is a plagiarism detection and proofreading tool that checks your write up for grammatical errors and offers suggestions to improve the style, word choice and readability of your document.

For instance, you are a budding publisher and a young writer approaches you with a manuscript that he/she wants to print. But before taking the plunge, you would definitely like to ensure that the script is original and will not land you in copyright issues. Enter PaperRater, a free tool that scans the documents for any potential plagiarism, although those who have used it extensively will tell you that language and grammar checking happens to be its strong point.

PaperRater has been developed by a bunch of college grads and linguistics professionals. Used by universities and schools in more than 46 countries, this tool has helped several students improve their writing style. But before the developers could introduce PaperRater on the Internet, they had to overcome huge challenges connected with computational linguistic design and development, entity resolution and automatic entity extraction, clustering, prioritization, plagiarism detection, duplicate document recognition, name parsing and regularization, among others.

That definitely is a long list of tasks to be accomplished within a short time. Therefore, a team of subject matter experts and computational linguistics worked together and created a core Natural Language Processing (NLP) engine to extract language evidence from term papers and essays, and then translate these into accurate codes, the creators of PaperRater have also included the ‘Vocabulary Builder’ tool to help students improve their vocabulary.

PaperRater comes loaded with an exciting range of features that make this application a favorite among all. When you submit a paper, the tool will analyse it pronto, 24/7and I real time. You will get in depth analysis that will help improve writing skills, grammar power and word choice thus enhancing the document’s overall readability. You will also find additional comments and analyses to clean up the paper adequately. Here is a step by step to get you initiated.  

Open the document that you want to analyse. Just copy and paste the text (including the works cited if it is a research paper) into the text box. You will also see a notification which states that the tool is created to evaluate high school level writing and above.

Now, choose the kind of paper that you want to evaluate. If it is a write up for the World Wide Web, you may like to use the essay analysis feature. You can also choose from several options that cover almost any type of writing.

Click on the ‘Get Report’ tab.

The tool will immediately check the paper for grammar, vocabulary, word choice, style and plagiarism. Each category is underlined with a different colour and this makes editing extremely easy. Phrases, words and grammatical issues are underlined in green. When you click on the underlined words, options will be there to help you fix the problem.

Similar options are available for spelling and word choice. While spelling issues are available for spelling and word choice. While spelling issues are underlined in red, word choice problems are highlighted in blue. Plus, the problems pointed out in the document will be clarified, so that one can learn more.

Writing style is also analysed by PaperRater, although it is not underlined like other spelling and grammar suggestions. Do remember that the use of passive voice is highly condemned in the literary world. paperRater acknowledges this fact and makes suggestions to fix this error.

Another interesting feature of PaperRater is the vocabulary rating. If one has used interesting words in the document, the toll is generous enough to shower words of praise.

Finally, the tool will analyse your document for plagiarism. However, those who have used this feature feel that this is not as thorough as some of the other plagiarism detection tools available online. You can try it or tally it with other apps. Ideally, you can get the paper checked at Paper Rater and then try another plagiarism detection tool for through result.

And before we sign off, here is more. A look at the PaperRater website will give you a lot more information on the additional features that the developers are planning to offer in the near future. Some of these features include grammar and writing tutorials, webinars, a method to create online personal database and a way to search through online databases automatically. In other words, PaperRater will not only help you work upon writing and language skills, but also enable you take it to another level.
