    Forget about article writing software. That's all you need to do, just forget you ever heard of it.

    Yup...there are good ones but you can't expect them to do everything, you have to put in some work as well.

    I agree. You can really forget about them. The articles generated by them are not even readable and absolutely doesn't make any sense. Human writers are more expensive but it's definitely worth it!

    The members above have given good advice.Article softwares cannot replace human writing.By writing yourself initially there might be difficulties but as time goes by you will get the hang of it.

    whats worse is amateur writers. they sometimes talk about something else other than the topic. outsource it, its really very readable and it will make sense. you can get writers off DP or GAF.

    I hate the idea of article writing software - I've tried a few and they're all terrible. I've heard good things about Instant Article Wizard but I don't think I'll be trying it - I'd prefer to write myself or outsource.

    yes... yes... just write!! the more you write the better your get... one method i use it a text-2-speech program with a good voice file to read back your work, this will REALLY help you along the way. This is really good at finding typos and stuff that dose not make sense in your wording. I also help people start sites by pulling in a few rss feeds that match there target market. That with your content being posted daily or weekly can build your site quickly. See link below...

    I bought an article writing software on DP but the script didn't run properly on my site and after a few efforts to get the guy fix it, I let it go. I have tried some online sites that claim to rewrite articles for you and results were hilarious.

    I suggest you do not waste your time in searching for such softwares as it is not possible for a tool to rewrite a article or write a new article. Only humans can do it

    You just outline a writer what you want to be in the article and ask him to write.... you will NOT write your mind!! So, how can you expect it to by a software?

    Wait wait, so someone actually thought to themselves "I know! ... I'll write a program that can generate an article on a given topic automatically!" THEN, independently some other people said "Hey, great idea!"

    ?

    It's no wonder most websites fail, lol.

    Writing software is for search engine - it write weird sentences that amazingly considered as unique by Google! :P

    Writing is complicated and should be handled by human-only

    Even when writing in Word, there are plenty of times that it wants me to change my grammar when I know that the suggested fill it wants to do is completely wrong. Software goes by algorithms. While sometimes it is right, you should never doubt what you have become use to knowing is proper. Its a tool, nothing more. Don't make it a crutch. Just like translation software from your native language to another is viewed as incorrect to those in the translated language, software isn't correct a lot of the time.

    What separates a pro from a Joe?
    Using stupid ideas like "Article writing software".

    Most of you guys have English as your first language; I learned English 8 years ago!! I am not perfect in English and I have my fair share of mistakes (both grammatical and spelling); but I learn from my mistakes.

    People who uses Article writing software are the same kind of people who thinks they can make money by lying on their couch all day.

    You are an idiot if you think article writing software works. There you go - I have said it first. Blow me.

    grrrrrrr...

    English is not my first language and I had to try with two different ones:
    - Website Content Wizard
    - Instant Article Wizard
    The only good part of them is that help you with the research that anybody should make before writing...but actually you have to write all

    Exactly. What happened to people actually enjoying their accomplishment? It's just like using a cheat code in a video game. It's great to play with it for 5 minutes, then there is no point left after you no longer worked for what you gained.
