QuickCounter 1.3

This application helps you count the words and characters of any text.

QuickCounter is a Mac application capable of counting the characters and words of any selected text. This program might come in handy to copywriters, news editors or students writing their dissertations as it offers a very simple yet effective way to analyze and determine the number of words used in their text files.

All you need to do in order to get the answers you need from this program is to paste a text within the panel from the left side of the screen and let the app get the counting job done. I like the fact that you can also load a TXT file and check how many characters or words it contains.

Besides counting the characters and words written within a text, this application also lets you add specific filtering options before analyzing the input data. For instance, you can configure the app to reveal the number of paragraphs, to show the word or symbol frequency, and much more.

The only aspect I don't like about this application is the fact that it supports only TXT files. The app fails to provide you with accurate results when loading PDF, RTF or DOC files.

All in all, QuickCounter is a helpful program for Mac users who wish to learn how many words or characters they used on their text files. The application brings a user-friendly interface, provides you with numerous counter settings, and offers you the results you need almost instantly. What's more, the app comes without a price tag.
