WhiteSmoke just released a new app that aims to change the sloppiness of BlackBerry emails. Their goal is for you to never have to put something like “apologies for the typos” in your BlackBerry email signature. Their app, WhiteSmoke for BlackBerry, claims to do just that with “the first solution that corrects grammar, style and spelling mistakes from your BlackBerry.”
This app even is built on WhiteSmoke’s fancy “Natural Language Processing” technology to do grammar checking. It also includes a style checker that offers alternative words and phrases for common stylistic errors as well as a contextual spell checker which distinguishes between thousands of commonly-confused words, like then~than, were~we’re and lets~let’s. WhiteSmoke claims to differentiate from the competition which are based on a pre-dictated list of grammar and spelling rules. They base that claim due to their “patented artificial intelligence algorithms that perform both rule and statistical based analysis of real mistakes users actually make in real life.”
You can pick up WhiteSmoke for $9.99 in App World at this link. I am going to give WhiteSmoke a spin and report back if I like it.
