Sherlock AI Detector is a lightweight writing assistant that can analyze texts of all sizes and determine if the entirety or parts of them were written by the AI text services. This easy-to-use app was built from the ground up to provide users of all ages a simple way to determine the authenticity of written text and give them assurances that AI-generated content will not end up in their project before they are published online or submitted at school, work, and other destinations that value authenticity and originality.

The value of this app can especially be extracted in the fields of education and academia, where both students and educators can make sure that the written text, they are handling is free from AI influences and is in line with the rules of honesty and fairness.  The same can also be said in various business fields that value authenticity, trust, and human-led project management.

This lightweight PC app is distributed as a standalone client that can be easily deployed on any modern Windows OS, and it requires a bare minimum of hardware resources to scan and deliver results even on large text projects.

Key Features
  • Streamlined AI Detection – Start detecting the authenticity of texts with a single button click.
  • Percentage-based Scores – Isolate the specific paragraphs that are AI-influenced.
  • Fast Text Analysis – Gain instant feedback without prolonged text processing times.
  • Wide File Format Compatibility – Copy/Paste texts or load them directly.
  • Easy to Use Interface – Streamline AI analysis operations with a simple dashboard.
  • No limitations on text size – Analyze everything from short social media posts to large PDF documents.
How to Use

This app does not require the creation of a user account, therefore enabling users of all ages and technical levels to simply download and install it on their home, school, or work PC. The app is distributed as an automated installer that only asks users to follow a few simple on-screen instructions. Once fully installed in a procedure that lasts less than a minute, users will be able to start the app for the first time.

The entirety of the app’s functions is located in a single dashboard that features a very traditional Windows app style, with no stylish elements that will catch your eye. To start the AI text analysis tool, users simply must load the text they wish to check in a large text field. This can be done either with a Copy/Past function or by activating the “Open” tool located in the “File” dropdown menu in the top-left corner of the app. This tool supports the automatic loading of text files created in popular file formats such as TXT, PDF, and DOCX.

User Interface

The user interface of this app is incredibly lightweight and streamlined. It consists of a single dashboard window that features just a few on-screen elements. The majority of the app footprint is taken by the large text field where users can load essays and documents for analysis. To start the analysis users simply need to click on the green “Start” button located in the bottom-right corner. An active analysis can be terminated by clicking on the nearby “Stop” button.

The rest of the UI elements are located in the three dropdown menu options located at the top-left corner. The file menu hosts the “Open” and “Save As” tools, the Text menu manages Copy and Paste functions, and the final Help menu can be used to find out basic app information written by the developers at
