Making a spelling mistake doesn’t matter when you’re messaging a friend. But when you’re composing a cover letter or drafting an important email, the smallest error can have serious consequences. WhiteSmoke Writing Assistant helps you avoid the potential embarrassment by checking your spelling, grammar, style, and punctuation as you type. Right now, you can get lifetime access for $79 at the PopSci Shop.

Making mistakes is a natural part of writing. However, recruiters and potential clients don’t see it that way. If you want to impress, it’s important to pick up errors.

You can think of WhiteSmoke as your personal proofreader. This app uses artificial intelligence algorithms to understand the meaning of your words and to spot the mistakes. In addition to spelling, grammar, and punctuation, WhiteSmoke will comment on your style and look for plagiarism. It’s way more powerful than the spell-checking tools in Word, and it works in 50 languages.

WhiteSmoke works on Windows and Mac, with plugins available for Word and Outlook. There’s also a Chrome extension, which works with any web-based text editor — useful for Gmail users.
