This productivity app uses a clean easy and simple to use interface and lets you load or type text into the main area. Then you can simply select the appropriate text modding actions from the menu and the app will do the rest. There is a spread of actions that are categorized under 'Remove', 'Replace', 'Insert' or 'Sort' text and any selected action is performed instantaneously across all lines of text - potentially thousands if it's a long piece. This tool is web based and does not require any software to be installed. All text processing is done locally and stored on the user's web browser device or PC. Additional features include real time line, word or character count, a display of top 10 most used words as well as an undo or redo function. TextEVO provides a number of text box modes ranging from full to minimum screen text editing.
