Automatic prose analysis tool

This morning I tried using an online prose analysis tool. Most of them you have to pay for, but I tested a free one called ProwritingAid. My only previous experience with this kind of thing was the so-called grammar corrections in Microsoft Word, which are pretty much 100% wrong. This online tool turned out to be a bit more advanced!

The tool wasn't perfect, but it was useful. You paste in some text and it runs an analysis. Unfortunately you have to sign up for a free account to see the results. Here's a screenshot of what the output looks like (click for bigger image).
