Description

Punctuation Matters!

PLEASE NOTE: this version has been superseded by PunctuateHD which is now (from version 14.010) a UNIVERSAL app so works on iPhone, iPad and iPod. You may still choose to download this older version but please be aware that it will not be updated. For the best in punctuation help, advice and guidance, please refer to PunctuateHD.

Why is punctuation important?

Simply because punctuation (or lack of it) can change the meaning of anything you write (letter, email, book, CV etc).

Punctuate! is a simple, straightforward guide to the what, how and when of punctuation. Simple enough to use in school, comprehensive enough to ensure business accuracy. And all in a simple to understand, real-world environment.

Optimized for the iPhone, Punctuate! will help you understand the uses of each of the punctuation marks available in English.

Not sure which punctuation mark to use? Just touch “Which mark to use”, select the guide you want and Punctuate! tells you which mark to use.

For each mark there is a clear description of each possible use together with a series of real-world examples of how to use that mark in each situation. And, further to help you understand correct usage, each mark features an “Errors to avoid” section showing common mistakes (and the correct punctuation).

With Punctuate! you are always able to verify that your written English is clear, correct and, above all, unambiguous. The “Expensive Mistakes” page illustrates how a Canadian company lost several million dollars because of an unnecessary comma…

Other examples of bad usage show you how poor or no punctuation can change the meaning of the written word, sometimes to dire effect.

Punctuate! is not a lengthy, reference tome on the arcane aspects of punctuation; nor is it designed to be the ultimate style guide. Punctuate! will simply help you understand the basic elements of punctuation, show you where to use and where not to use punctuation marks, and, above all, ensure that your written English is clear, easily understood and reflects exactly what you intended it to mean.

Nice app could use more examples

:
This is straight forward will help if you are unsure what puncuation to use. Could go more in depth. Should really be a free app as not much to it.
