Emailing and texting is a double-edged sword.
On the one hand we’re able to stay connected almost all of the time. On the other, the rapid-fire nature of email and SMS means tone and meaning can easily be misconstrued.
Keeping you on the straight and narrow with e-etiquette is FoxType.
FoxType works by analysing your email’s language and perceived tone, and offer suggestions for making it more digestible.
Simply cut and paste your missive into FoxType’s text box and it will spit out a number of cordial commentaries and group your text into Polite, Neutral and Impolite categories.
FoxType also give tips on negative words and phrases to avoid.
While not all of FoxType’s suggestions are spot on, it’s an easy (and free) way to test important emails before hitting send.
