If you're looking for a way to improve your writing and you wish to analyze your text and word frequencies, Word List is an application that may come in handy in this regard.
It all comes down to five different steps and the main window is the one that makes the whole task a breeze, mostly because it organizes each step on a separate tab for instant access.
First of all, you are required to choose a file to be analyzed, while step number two presents the first set of options. You're thus allowed to sort words by frequency or alphabetically, with separate entries to include index, frequency and percentage.
Next, you have nothing else to do than to press the “Start” button which gives the green light to the word list creation process.
The next tab is the one that provides access to the results, showing each word appearing in the document you selected, along with frequency and using percentage. You can of course save results as a text document file, with dedicated options to see the data on tabs or with fixed width.
As you can see, Word List is far from being a very complex piece of software, so beginners should not encounter any problem, despite the fact that no help file is included in the package.
Word List relies on a simple interface and a quick word processing engine, so it's not at all a resource hog, while running just fine on all Windows iterations.
Overall, Word List does what it says with a very simple approach and just a few configuration options, being addressed to all types of users.
