Word Counter Pro is a simple and powerful application for writers. With Word Counter Pro you can view statistics of your writing such as Word count, Character count, Sentence count, Line count, Paragraph count, and more.

Word Counter Pro allows you to view stats in six different ways:

1. Type or paste text in the window.
2. Drag and drop a supported text file to the window.
3. Have Word Counter Pro watch a supported text file as you edit it in another application. When Word Counter Pro is watching a text file, a popover will appear in the menubar displaying stats that will be updated as you write.
4. Use the Word Counter Pro Action Extension to get stats of selected text in any text editing app that supports Action Extensions (like TextEdit).
5. Select the "Get stats from Word Counter Pro" menu item from the Services menu for selected text in practically any text editing apps on macOS.
6. Select a rtf, rtfd, txt, or docx file in Finder and choose the "Watch in Word Counter Pro" menu item from the Services menu.

Word Counter Pro also allows you to apply custom settings. Some of the custom settings you can specify include:

-Setting a custom page size for measuring Line count. For accuracy, Word Counter Pro calculates the Line count by measuring against a particular page size.
-Changing the left and right margin of the custom page size, which also will impact the Line count.
-Enforcing a minimum number of sentences required for Paragraph count. Most word processing software will incorrectly count titles and lines of text in headers as paragraphs, even though they are not part of the body of your document. Requiring a certain number of sentences per paragraph can result in a more accurate paragraph count, since dangling words are not counted as paragraphs.
-Optionally have Word Counter Pro report the Word count to you verbally while it watches a document you are editing.

Word Counter Pro supports the following file types:

Additional Features:
-Get stats for multiple files in a single operation.
-Export stats for documents to a separate file on disk.

VERY responsive company!

Writes for All Inc. released Word Counter Pro 2.0 with a new feature that allows blind typing with verbal word count under the Watch File tab. This is a feature I requested not long ago and was ecstatic to learn that this company’s app now is available to me with this adaptation!

Thank you to the folks at Writes for All Inc.

Contrary to some reviews here, I find this app remarkably useful as a writer. Well-worth the investment!

this app does not show up under my subscriptions to cancel before the free trial ends like all my other apps. its proving difficult to unsubscribe and i still have not been able to cancel this;

Developer Response ,

The app does not show up under your subscriptions because it does not use subscriptions. When the free trial ends the app will notify you that your free trial period has expired and it will give you the opportunity to make a *one-time* in-app purchase to unlock the app but it *will not* automatically bill you.

Apologies for the confusion. If you choose not to unlock the full version of the app after the free trial has ended then no action is required by you to avoid being charged.

total rip-off

It counts the words. So what? Every word processor already does that. MUCH too expensive for what it does.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. In addition to counting words, Word Counter Pro allows you to get stats for supported document types from many different applications using the app's Action Extension and system Services. Word Counter Pro can also get stats for multiple documents in a single operation, while most word processing apps will show stats for the current document being edited only. Writers and translators find these features useful. Word Counter Pro supports other features as well. Please read the App Store description for more details.

Feel free to reach out via the support link to provide feedback.
