      It doesn't work very well. For example, it shows all is good if I type in the following: "Can you do plan by yourself? Yoda I speak like and check grammar I do. "

      Typely vs Grammarly
      pros, cons and recent comments
      While it does everything Grammarly does for free, it's slow and a bit bulky. Some of the features it has are just for show and not functionality. It's a bit odd but with enough time can get the job done.
