Our amazing Perfect Tense integration is just days away…

Our internal tests of the brand-new Perfect Tense integration right inside your Spin Rewriter control panel are incredibly promising — which leads me to believe we’re just days away from enabling the Perfect Tense integration for all our users on our production servers.

We’ll definitely roll out full support for Perfect Tense before the end of February, along with some demo videos that will truly demonstrate its full power, and what the combination of Spin Rewriter and Perfect Tense will do for your content creation needs. It’s going to be truly mind-boggling! 😀

Stay tuned! #exciting

New icons for a sleeker user interface

We’ve just rolled out a design update of some of the most commonly used Spin Rewriter user interface elements.

This also means that some elements just received brand-new, shiny icons to make your experience even more intuitive and satisfying. In addition to that, based on multiple internal split-tests we’ve also streamlined some workflows to work even better for our customers.

We think you’re gonna love these updates! 😀

Handling of the “Title Case”

As a content creator, you might’ve already heard of “Title Case” — so, what is it?

It’s also known as “headline style” or “capital case” and it’s mostly used in, well, titles. I’m talking about the capitalization of almost every individual word in titles, with some minor exceptions, described here:

http://grammar.yourdictionary.com/capitalization/rules-for-capitalization-in-titles.html

So, what does this have to do with Spin Rewriter? Actually, quite a bit.

Let me give you an example. Let’s look at an article with the following hypothetical title:

Guitar Lessons for Beginners

Now, if you use an automated article spinner, the software might replace the word “Guitar” with “Electric guitar”. Because the original word started with an uppercase letter, the suggest synonym does as well: “Electric guitar”.

But once you actually use the suggested synonym, you get this:

Electric guitar Lessons for Beginners

This is pretty good, but it’s not quite perfect. Obviously the word “guitar” should also start with an uppercase letter, giving us:

Electric Guitar Lessons for Beginners

Well, with the latest update to Spin Rewriter, our core algorithm now recognizes the context of Title Case in virtually every case, and makes sure the capitalization of suggested synonyms makes perfect sense.

I’m sure you’re going to love this new feature. 😀

Parentheses: Tricky stuff!

Just last week we were tipped off about a minor issue that some of our users were seeing when working with numeric strings such as phone numbers inside Spin Rewriter…

With just the right mix of parentheses and numbers, Spin Rewriter sometimes tripped a bit over its own cleverness and jumbled some of the resulting spun text. Here’s an example that used to give it a bit of a headache:

This sample (462718) 555-1212 phone number can
also be written as (462) 718 5551212.

This particular combination of ( and ) in combination with numbers (462…) and dashes (555-1212) lead to a slighly unexpected result – but no more. 😀 We’ve just fixed this minor glitch, and made Spin Rewriter even more powerful. Enjoy! 😀

Even better handling of plural forms

Spin Rewriter has always been famous for not simply treating words as groups of letters, but for being able to actually extract the precise meaning of each individual word and treat each word exactly like a human writer would. This includes correct handling of plural forms of certain nouns that don’t behave quite like most other nouns out there.

We’ve just rolled out an update that makes Spin Rewriter even better when it comes to pluralizing some words — and knowing which ones NOT to pluralize at all. Here’s just some examples of what we mean:

Furniture
Information
Knowledge
Jewelry
Homework
Marketing
Livestock
Education
Courage
Bravery
Luck
Cowardice
Greed
Clarity
Honesty
Evidence
Insurance
Butter
Love
News
Curiosity
Satisfaction
Work
Mud
Weather
Racism
Sexism
Patriotism
Chaos
Scenery
Help
Advice
Water
Fun
Wisdom
Silence
Sugar
Coal
Spelling
Money

None of these words should ever get pluralized — and especially not by simply slapping an “s” or “es” to the end of them. It takes nuance to get these things right — and that’s exactly what Spin Rewriter is famous for. 😀

Updated exports and dowloads

We’ve just rolled out yet another quality-of-life improvement when it comes to using Spin Rewriter.

If you’re looking to download multiple articles from your Archive of spun articles inside Spin Rewriter, you no longer need to download each individual article separately. With this most recent update, you can now simply select multiple articles inside your Archive and click the “Download Articles …” button that appears automatically — and all of your selected spun articles will be instantly downloaded to your computer.

Go ahead & give it a try, it’s pretty cool! 😀

Setting category for multiple articles…

We’ve just rolled out another feature that makes Spin Rewriter just that tiny little bit more powerful, and tiny little bit more delightful to use — and as we all know, over time these little quality-of-life improvements add up to a genuinely amazing product.

Inside your Archive of spun articles, you’re no longer limited to clicking each individual article in order to set its category. Setting the category of individual articles is fine if you always set the category of an article as soon as you’re done spinning it — but sometimes we can all be a bit lazy, and then we’re suddenly left with 20 uncategorized freshly spun articles, 16 of which we might want to assign to the same category.

With this most recent update, you no longer have to click 16 different articles in your Archive and select the exact same category 16 times in a row. You can now simply select all 16 articles and then use the “Change Category of Articles…” button that shows up automatically — this way you’ll be able to assign a category to all 16 articles in a single move.

I hope you like this update. 😉

A visual update to our Quick Buttons…

Most users of Spin Rewriter are already familiar with our Quick Buttons… which are the 3 almost-magic buttons that make the spinning process so much easier and so much faster.

While they’re absolutely great once you start using them, we discovered that a significant number of our users never got around to discovering them and putting them to good use… and we can’t really blame them:

Quick Buttons - before

These are the buttons we mean. The “T”, “A” and “R” buttons next to the input field for new synonyms. They’re used to instantly and automatically select “Top” synonyms of the current word… or to select “All” synonyms of the current word… or to “Replace All” occurrences of the current word in the entire article with the synonyms we’ve just selected.

So yeah — while they’re powerful, they’re not what you would call prominent. And we simply had to change that. Voilá:

Quick Buttons - after

I’m just going to say it — this is much better now! Not only are the buttons more prominent… and not only they actually tell you what they do, in full words. There’s also a little blue question mark that you can click, and that tells you (in detail!) exactly what clicking each of the powerful Quick Buttons does.

There’s even an example to make things clearer — so let me paste it right here:

When selecting the word »book« in your text, you’ll see a list of available synonyms. Clicking Top will automatically select the best synonyms, for example »novel« and »magazine«. Clicking Replace All will then automatically add these 2 top synonyms to every single occurrence of the word »book« in your entire article. It will also capitalize or pluralize those synonyms as required (e.g. it will use »Novels« as a synonym of »Books« instead of »novel«).

I hope you guys will love this update! 😀 And we’re actually already working on three other similar updates to the user interface, where we can significantly improve the user experience by slightly tweaking the location and the wording of different buttons and inputs. Stay tuned! 😀
