Autocrit vs. ProWritingAid: How They Stack Up

ProWritingAid vs. Autocrit

How does ProWritingAid stack up against online editing tool AutoCrit? We’ve carried out direct comparisons below according to a number of criteria.


ProWritingAid Premium

ProWritingAid Premium can be purchased as a one-year, two-year, three-year, or lifetime license. If you purchase a one-year license, ProWritingAid costs just $5.83 a month! It gets even cheaper if you purchase longer plans.


Autocrit only offers a month-to-month subscription plan. The professional plan is $30 a month, while the elite plan is $80!

That’s a big difference. But don’t let ProWritingAid’s low cost fool you into thinking it’s not as comprehensive! Keep reading to find out more.

Free Version

Both ProWritingAid and AutoCrit offer some analysis for free, but ProWritingAid offers its free users many more features.


Input your text into their free version and you will get an analysis of your adverb usage, including a list of those that you are using too frequently. There are no word limits, but you don’t get access to as many reports.


You get access to every ProWritingAid report, including the Grammar Report, Style Report, Repetition Report, Sticky Sentence Report, Overused Words Report, Sentence Length Report, Readability Report and many more. We have 25 reports! The free version does, however, have a 500 word limit.



AutoCrit is an online editing tool and must be used within your internet browser. If you’re writing in Scrivener or MS Word, you have to copy and paste your document into AutoCrit, edit, then copy and paste back into your writing program. It can’t be used offline.


ProWritingAid Premium users can use ProWritingAid in several ways.

Number of Writing Reports


ProWritingAid offers the following reports as standard in both the free and paid versions:


AutoCrit offers the following reports as part of their paid subscription:

  • Dialogue
  • Strong Writing
  • Word Choice
  • Repetition
  • Compare to Fiction
  • Pacing and Momentum

There are other reports, and many do the same thing as ProWritingAid. AutoCrit’s unique feature is comparing your work to famous authors and making sure you book fits your genre.


We think it’s pretty clear that ProWritingAid offers a lot more value for money: twice as many writing reports at a fraction of the cost. We haven’t even mentioned some of the other free features such as the Word Explorer, Summary Report and Contextual Thesaurus. Just give it a try and see for yourself.
