PatchWords App Color Codes Your Words

Want to know what colors your novel has in it? There’s an app for that. PatchWords Universal has a new iPad app that will create color-coded blocks out of words you type in to reveal patterns of word usage. For example, the word “become” is black, the word “to” is pink and the word “you” is blue.

You can get really creative with your text and sort words alphabetically, by color, or simply in the order that you wrote them. The above video shows how it works in more detail.

When you are done, you can export your PatchWords masterpiece as a photo and share it with friends.
