More about Character Counting

Character counts are important in a variety of industries; various types of projects, contests, documents and data types have specific requirements for the total number of characters rather than a total word count. Of course business related memos, headlines in newspapers, titles for assignments, tweets, SMS text messages, etc can all require a strict character limit and would find this character counter useful and essential.

This online character counter app is also an alternative to character count features that may be difficult to find, not as feature rich, or absent from other software such as Microsoft Word, student versions of Word, Notepad, Wordpad, etc. Often features are disabled in software and a free online alternative is needed.
