Charlottesville, Virginia – Students frustrated with writing find Niles Technology writing apps as the answer writing better. Mentally organizing ideas is a key to writing well and Niles apps make that task easy. They guide students through the tough thinking process of writing by asking the relevant questions necessary to prepare well-structured arguments. Selling in the App Store for over three years, Niles apps is the solution for students to reduce writing angst and to develop confidence in the written word.
“It is discouraging that this year’s SAT writing scores fell again to their lowest averages ever,” states Michael A. Niles, president of Niles Technology Group. “Students just do not seem to have the skills to approach writing tests with confidence. Part of this problem is students try to write sentences instead of ideas. They analyze the amount of words and paragraphs written instead of the strength of their arguments. And worse, many students think an opinion is a factual statement. Niles writing apps help correct these weaknesses and place students on a more grounded writing track.”
Leading the way for schools and students to improve writing skills, Niles Technology apps work seamlessly with any BYOD or in-house iPad and iPhone programs. For BYOD, students can store their work on the device until finished. In shared device programs, students can conveniently email their work off the device when finished for the day and then re-import to resume later. Students benefit from step-by-step instructions on how to develop a reasoned, convincing essay, as well as becoming confident in the power of their ideas.
