The 7 Best Wordtune Alternatives in 2022

Wordtune is a great AI writing tool, but it’s not for everyone.

Me? I love it because it’s simple and can be used everywhere with its Chrome extension.

I also love small tools to help me write better. Wordtune does that.

But you might need an upgrade. Or something cheaper. Or something better suited to your uniqu needs.

And lucky for you, forlorn wander of the MarTech landscape, there are great AI copywriting tools with literally anything, from:

  • Rewriting sentences, paragraphs, and even full articles
  • Generating content briefs and outlines from scratch
  • Generating full AI articles from scratch
  • Improving grammar, style, and tone
  • Checking for plagiarism

…and on and on.

The Wordtune alternatives I’ll list here will span all price ranges and use cases. I’m certain there will be at least one tool that will fulfill your needs.

So In this piece, I’ll cover the 7 best Wordtune alternatives. For each tool, I’ll do a description of what I like about each tool, who it’s best for, pros and cons, and pricing information.

Something for everyone here!

What is Wordtune (and why do people like it)?

Before we get into alternatives to Wordune, I need to first distill what it is that Wordtune uniquely does and why people like it. Then we can get into its downsides and find tools that fill those gaps.

Wordtune, an AI writing assistant focused on content revisions, was built in 2018 by AI21 Labs.

The team’s stated goal is to revolutionize the way we read and write.

It’s a copywriting tool built with AI and language models that understand the context and semantics of written text.

Wordtune, simply put, is an AI based rewriter that helps you improve the quality of your writing and rephrase your content.

They have a free Chrome extension as well as an in-app editor.

I love Wordtune because it’s simple and easy to use.

Just paste in your text, click a button, and it will give you a list of suggested rewrites. They have a free web based editor you can use without an account:

It’s perfect for when you need a quick copy edit or want to improve the quality of your writing without spending hours doing it yourself. And at $9.99 / month, it’s an affordable option for most people. They also have a free plan that allows up to 10 rewrites per day. The free plan lacks the following features, though:

  • Casual & Formal Tones
  • Shorten & Expand
  • Paragraph Rewrite
  • Premium support

It works with tons of platforms, too, including Google Docs, Gmail, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Slack, Whatsapp, Microsoft Word, and more.

I use Twitter a lot, so let’s illustrate. I write a Tweet filled with poor grammar and style:

Then I highlight the text and hit Command + D, and it gives me a bunch of writing suggestions:

Overall, the tool is great for ironing out stylistic issues like overuse of the passive voice, convoluted writing, and unclear copy.

But Wordtune is not without its limitations.

The biggest one is that it can only rewrite a limited number of words at a time, at least on the free plan. So if you have a large piece of content, it’s going to take a while to get through it all.

Another downside is that it doesn’t offer any content generation capabilities. So if you’re looking for help with coming up with ideas or writing high quality content from scratch, Wordtune is not the right tool for you.

Now that we’ve covered what Wordtune is and why people like it (and don’t like it), let’s move on to the alternatives to Wordtune.

Editor’s note: I’m going to use some affiliate links when possible to try to earn some revenue from my content. These don’t change the opinions espoused in the content nor the style in which they are written. If I think a product sucks, I’m not going to say otherwise. This is just a bonus and a way to fund the whole operation. Anyway, enjoy the article!

The 7 Best Wordtune Alternatives in 2022

  1. Quillbot
  2. Jasper AI
  3. Copy AI
  4. WordAI
  5. Speedwrite
  6. Grammarly
  7. Frase.io

1. Quillbot

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 4.51.53 pm

Best for: improving clarity and style in short bits of copy, correcting grammar and spelling

The first Wordtune alternative on my list is QuillBot.

It’s the most similar to Wordtune.

Quillbot is an AI based rewriter – a paraphrasing tool that uses artificial intelligence to improve your existing content.

It’s free to use without an account, though only their basic features are available on the free plan.

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 5.44.31 pm

If you upgrade, it’s only $8.33 per month, and you get access to more powerful paraphrasing tools.

You can choose, for instance, whether you want to make your content more or less formal, longer or shorter, more concise or clear, or how many synonyms you’d like to swap out.

They also have a plagiarism checker, grammar checker, a citation generator, and a co-writing assistant.

I really like Quillbot because it’s super easy to use. Just paste in your text, select the paraphrasing options you want, and hit “paraphrase.”

It’s perfect for when you need to quickly improve the quality of your writing or make small changes to existing content.

Quillbot is a really solid tool, but if you’re looking for others like it, check out my full guide on the best Quillbot alternatives.

Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Free to use (basic features)
  • Paid plans are super ffordable
  • Powerful paraphrasing capabilities
  • Also has a plagiarism checker, grammar checker, and citation generator

Cons:

  • Limited features on the free version

Pricing: $0/month (free plan with limited word count) or $8.33/month

2. Jasper AI

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 4.51.41 pm

Best for: everything! This one is powerful and highly customizable. Can tackle any digital marketing use case.

Jasper is an all-purpose AI writing software built on top of GPT-3. It’s incredibly powerful and  can do everything from content generation to copywriting to SEO optimization.

It’s easily my favorite AI writing tool. I use it to create content for social media (repurposed from my blog posts), to improve my long form content, and even to write love letters:

Here was the input for that poem, by the way:

In fact, I’m using Jasper to outline and write this article:

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 5.00.59 pm

You can even see on the left-hand side that I’m using the integration with Surfer to optimize the piece for SEO. Pretty neat workflow – saves me a ton of time since I don’t have to context switch and jump between tools.

Similar to Wordtune, it has paraphrasing features to help you rewrite existing content. However, I like it better for more advanced use cases.

It does take a bit of time to learn how to use this properly, mainly because it’s so feature rich.

For instance, if you’ve got Boss Mode, you have the ability to use their SEO mode (which integrates with Surfer to give you keyword suggestions), focus mode, or power mode (which lets you use custom recipes and commands).

Here’s an example – I fed Jasper my website’s “About page,” and asked it to roast me:

Then it used AI to write the following:

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 10.45.05 am

Really cutting me to the core.

Despite the fighting words, I’m a big fan of Jasper to get rid of writer’s block, but also to simply make your writing better.

They test out different language models, too, so the tool continues to get better and better over time. Also, they support 20+ languages and the Google docs style editor is super smooth and user friendly for content writing directly within the app.

They’re also in the process of launching a new AI powered image generator, which I’m stoked about.

Pros:

  • Incredibly powerful
  • Integrates with Surfer SEO (content optimization tool)
  • Tons of features
  • Ready-made templates and recipes to get you started no matter what your use case
  • Gets better over time
  • Platform built for teams with multiple users

Cons:

  • Not as easy to use as some of the other tools on this list (takes time to learn)
  • Other than that, no real cons. Love Jasper and the team over there.

Pricing: Starts at $29 per month with a 5 day money back guarantee. Includes up to 5 users. Boss Mode starts at $59 per month and is totally worth the price.

3. Copy AI

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 4.52.07 pm

Best for: short form copy, including Facebook ads, social media, and product descriptions.

Copy.ai is an AI-powered content generation tool that helps you create high quality, original content.

Like Jasper, it is a general purpose AI writer with tons of templates and use cases.

One of my favorites is their long form blog post workflow. You start out by giving the tool a topic. It uses machine learning to produce an outline for you, which you can edit and beef up to your liking. Then, you can literally create a ~1,000 word article with the click of a button. Takes a matter of minutes – pretty insane.

Transparently, I’ve found the quality of these articles to be…not great.

So you have to either be a great and judicious editor, or be morally okay with publishing bullshit content on the internet. My advice would be to be a judicious editor.

As an alternative to Wordtune, it does some basic sentence expansion and paraphrasing, but if that’s your only use case, this AI writer might be overkill.

It does everything, from product descriptions to SEO optimized blog posts to sales copy and more.

Overall, I find Copy AI…alright. I also wrote up a big guide on the best Copy AI alternatives you can check out.

Pros:

  • Automatically generates content outlines (based on topic)
  • Tons of templates and use cases
  • Generates ~1000 word articles with the click of a button
  • Original, plagiarism free content
  • Great at short form copy like product descriptions and social media content
  • Free plan is great. Can kick the tires and check it out w/o a credit card.

Cons:

  • Quality of AI content is not great (requires editing)
  • Not my favorite tool for long form content
  • Might be overkill if you’re only looking for sentence expansion/paraphrasing
  • Lacks integrations to support SEO optimized content

Pricing: Starts at $49 per month for 40K words and up to 5 user seats. They also have a limited free version with 2,000 words of AI content per month

4. WordAI

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 4.52.20 pm

Best for: high scale content repurposing and content improvement & larger teams. SEOs and link builders.

WordAI is a solid Wordtune alternative built for high scale content teams.

It’s an AI writing assistant with a twist. It uses machine learning to help you improve the quality of your writing and make sure that not only is your grammar on point, but your content is always SEO optimized.

I’ve found it to be particularly helpful for catching typos and small grammatical errors that I might otherwise miss. For instance, it will catch things like using “it’s” when you should be using “its” – that kind of thing.

It will also help you improve the quality of your writing by suggesting different word choices and giving you feedback on sentence structure. It’s not as comprehensive as something like Wordtune, but it’s a great tool to have in your arsenal, nonetheless.

Another great feature is that it can do bulk article rewriting, generating up to 1,000 versions of a single piece of content, all plagiarism free. Great for link builders looking to generate tons of content for guest posts.

Pros:

  • Helps you improve the quality of your writing
  • Catches typos and small grammatical errors
  • Suggests different word choices
  • Bulk article rewriting. This is their big differentiator
  • Solid paraphrasing tool

Cons:

  • Just does rewriting — no net new content generation
  • Bit expensive for what you get TBH

Pricing: Plans start at $57/month, and they include a 3 day free trial (and money back guarantee)

5. Speedwrite

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 4.52.38 pm

Best for: students and essay writers looking to save time and money

Speedwrite is an interesting combination of paraphrasing and content generation.

Essentially, it takes your existing content and will generate “predictions” based on your inputs.  So, if you’re stuck on what to say next, you can simply type in a word or phrase and Speedwrite will give you a list of predictions to choose from.

It’s not perfect, but it can be helpful in a pinch. I’ve found that the quality of the predictions tends to degrade the more unique your input is.

So, if you’re writing about something fairly generic, Speedwrite will do a decent job. But, if you’re writing about something specific or niche, the predictions won’t be as accurate. Side note: I also wrote up a full guide on the best Speedwrite alternatives.

Pros:

  • Quick and easy to use
  • Can help you generate ideas for what to say next
  • Killer for removing writer’s block
  • Free plan is solid, but you’ll need to upgrade (quite affordable) if you use it frequently

Cons:

  • Quality of predictions degrades with more unique inputs
  • Doesn’t quite paraphrase content like Wordtune, rather, it generates new content based on previous inputs

Pricing: This one is free! Paid plans begin at $19.99 per month for up to 6,000 predictions

6. Grammarly

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 4.52.54 pm

Best for: correcting grammar and spelling, improving style and tone, and crafting better writing across all platforms

I think everyone knows Grammarly by now. It’s is an incredibly popular grammar checking tool.

Main thing to know is it’s a Chrome extension that helps you write better content anywhere you are – email, social media, articles in Google Docs, etc.

I’ve found it to be helpful for catching typos and small grammatical errors, much like WordAI. However, it’s got a ton more features than just grammar checking, including:

  • Grammar Checker
  • Plagiarism Checker
  • Essay Checker
  • Tone Detector
  • Style Guide
  • Snippets
  • Analytics
  • Brand Tones

It doesn’t do AI content writing, nor does it provide frameworks for high converting sales copy. But it is a user-friendly, all-purpose tool to help you write high quality content anywhere you’re writing.

Grammarly is one of the most powerful tools out there, but there are other alternatives very similar to it (Hemingway App being one). The market is pretty large for tools like this now.

Pros:

  • Easily the most popular grammar checking tool
  • Helps you catch typos and small grammatical errors (cant u tell by my riting?)
  • Easy AF to use
  • Love their plagiarism checker and use it with all my freelance writers

Cons:

  • If you’re just looking for a Wordtune alternative / grammar and style corrections, honestly not many cons
  • Doesn’t have the full AI content writing feature set of something like Copy AI or Jasper

Pricing: The free plan is super generous, and then paid plans start at $12.00 per month

7. Frase.io

Screen shot 2022-08-21 at 4.53.10 pm

Best for: SEO teams and content writers looking to speed up the entire content creation process

Frase is an AI-powered writing assistant that helps you improve the quality of your writing, optimize your content for SEO, and generate full content outlines complete with research and suggested topics and keywords to cover.

I’ve found it to be particularly helpful for optimizing my content for SEO. It’s easy to use and it provides detailed feedback on what I can do to improve my ranking in Google search .

Pros:

  • Absolute powerhouse for AI generated content briefs, especially for long form content
  • Includes powerful tool for artificial intelligence written content
  • Optimizes your content for SEO

Cons:

  • Quite a bit more expensive than other Wordtune alternatives
  • Bit of a learning curve to figure out all the various features
  • Not the best at paraphrasing and rewriting

Pricing: $44.99/mo (SEO Add-On is an additional $35/mo)

Wrap up on the best Wordtune alternatives

Right on – you made it to the end. The conclusion. Did you read every word? Like 30% of it was written with one of the Wordtune alternatives I mentioned (Jasper). Pretty neat, huh?

So obviously, that’s the one I recommend if you want to write long form content. But it’s also good for rewriting and repurposing.

Honestly, though, for making your content better — Grammarly, Quillbot, and Wordtune are the best there.

The cool thing is almost all of these tools either have free plans or free trials, so you can try them out. Don’t even need to take my word for it!
