An Editor for Every Inbox

The Wordzen app promises to help you be a better communicator.

January 20, 2016

Wordzen is a Gmail app that functions as your correspondence assistant. Once you enable the plugin on your Gmail account, all you have to do is toss a couple of key phrases into an e-mail and press the “Smart Send” button. A real, live person will turn your scribbles into an emotionally intelligent, grammatically correct note in 10 minutes or less.

en we tried it, we threw down misspellings, sentence fragments, real estate jargon, and abbreviations, and within five minutes got back something much more sendable. Since it is a service provided by human editors, you may not want to send them anything sensitive or personal, though Wordzen pledges to adhere to a strict confidentiality policy. They’re also unable to see anything you transmit through the normal “send” button.

The best part? Wordzen is absolutely free—for now. Since the company does plan to start charging eventually, check it out sooner rather than later. Free. Wordzen Inc., Chicago. []
