Teachers, editors, and even writers are among the many users who need to check work for originality. Plagiarism Checker performs its basic function well but could benefit from additional instructions and guidance for users new to plagiarism checkers.
The download of Plagiarism Checker completed quickly and installation did not require any user interaction. The application did not have any instructions or tutorials, which would have been helpful. Users who have already used online plagiarism checkers will surely have no problem finding their way. However, users new to plagiarism checkers may find the interface a bit confusing. The application opens to a menu with a bar for URL entry and a large box to write the text the user would like checked. The interface does not explain clearly how to use these two options. The process to run the program was not obvious and required trial and error to figure out. Despite this, the application completed the check quickly and the returned result was easy to read. There are additional features to upload files by signing in, but this is not well explained by the program and so was not tested. When checking for originality, the user can select from multiple search engines for the comparison operations.
Plagiarism Checker performs well and could be useful to users who need to check text for originality via their mobile device.
