'FoxType' is a new app that helps users avoid sending messages that may offend the recipient. Many people have struggled with the consequences of sending a strongly worded message. This app is specially designed to prevent rude messages from being sent in the first place.

FoxType is available as a browser-based tool or as a Gmail plug-in. Once installed, the user simply copies and pastes their potentially offensive message into a designated text box. The app then rates the message in terms of its politeness. The app will also highlight the offending text in order to show the user what part of their message may often the recipient. The app thus helps users cut down on editing time by showing them how to send a more polite message.

While FoxType is ideal for office correspondence, the app may also be useful for job seekers emailing potential employers.
