Online writing tools to make life easier

Occasionally, we might find it complicated to spot a misspelled word, or we just happen to type slower than usual, but with the apps I’m going to show you today — it’s no longer a problem!

James Daily, the head of a content department at FlashEssay, adds, “It`s essential to keep trying and doing your best to stay productive. We all know that the water doesn’t flow until the faucet is turned on.” So, even if you’re facing an issue that’s stopping you from writing, check out the web, who knows, there may be an app for that.

Years ago, if you had to write an essay or any other kind of text, all you could use was a typewriter and your imagination. Right now we have computers that give us access to thousands of tools and services that make our lives considerably easier. And the good news is that many of them are absolutely free to use.

I’ve created a list of 6 online writing tools that you ’ll find helpful for writing emails, formal documents, or just staying in touch with loved ones.

1. Evernote

We all forget things once in a while. While most people use a pen and paper to write quick notes or ideas down — it’s easy to lose or misplace them. Evernote is a great app that will let you write down notes. Once a note is saved, you’re going to have it available on all of your devices, whether it’s a computer, a tablet, or phone. It is very simple and convenient to use and is available for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. It is much faster to and easier to use for a quick note than Microsoft Word, for example.
