"The phenomenally popular I Write Like analyses your prose and matches its style with famous authors. Who's your literary doppelganger? ... So it might not be getting it right every time but I Write Like is an awful lot of fun."

— The Guardian

"Go ahead, try it."

— Entertainment Weekly

"[Margaret] Atwood, herself, tried the site only to discover she also apparently writes like King. "Who knew?" she tweeted. Obviously, I Write Like isn't an exact science. But simply the idea of an algorithm that can reveal traces of influence in writing has proven wildly popular."

Great for Asessing Style

I have long enjoyed their online site for analyzing text, since I run important writing through several tools, e.g., Grammarly and MS Word Editor, but also this tool. For myself, when it evaluates it as David Foster Wallace, I know I am writing the way that I like to write.

Fun if nothing else, and since I have long used the online tool, wanted to support the developers by buying their app.
