The tool not only helping me correct a lot of typos while I write but also help me learn English with proper grammar, with proper usage of "a/the", with "on/in/at" and many other things. It's also helping me sounds better. Also, I tried alternatives to Grammarly, and all of them much worst then Grammarly. If someone knows better alternative except ProWrittingAid - leave a comment below mine.

Cons:

  • price for premium - too high, really too high, I can't afford it.
  • Performance issues here and there
  • Do not work on many sites (1page sites like discord, youtube, etc).
  • Can really slow-down whole page loadings in different browsers (depends on the browser) on modern hardware.

If you have so many cons, why still 5 Stars?

Because there are no alternatives in the market at all which even close to Grammarly. And I do saying nothing about quality of corrections. I tried around 8-10 for sure. Grammarly best one in the market, far ahead of all other tools. But the price extremely expensive for such service.

Very helpful for certain kinds of grammar errors. Premium is very expensive, I heard it's not worth it and they don't have a test account so I am not getting it.

Grammarly is a proven keylogger. Its premiums are too expensive, and it's extremely English centered. There are several glitches as well, and it took forever to get Google Docs support, and it's not very good. Glitches include underlines in the wrong places when the text is long (it can't seem to keep track of any kind of deletion or the field moving), underlines for the wrong things (again, problems with deletion. Every single time it's a word that I deleted what feels like an hour ago), deleting entire blocks of text on some sites when correcting, duplicating entire blocks of text when correcting, duplicating the word without correcting, not correcting at all, moving my cursor, and not being able to handle various websites and circumstances that are common for long blocks of text. It hates google keep, Gmail, docs, school websites like canvas, and any social site that's not mainstream, and it REALLY hates when the message gets so long the text field gains a scroll bar.

It also just doesn't try on search bars regardless of if it's the browsers default field at the top of the screen, or on Google dot com in the middle of the actual website. One thing that also gets me is how it also doesn't know that "I'm" is a real word. Common spelling checker mistake that peeves me.

And then again, on top of all this, it steals your passwords and personal messages. Always use open source programs when you can. The way it asks for hundreds out of you for a spell checker disgusts me. Find a free one on here.

The most positive thing I can say is that it works well on Twitter and YouTube. Pretty much the only text fields where I don't find complications. So if you're the kind of miserable individual who only cycles between profitable social medias and that's your only internet experience, go for it… And stay far away from me!

The free version is a great tool for basic grammar and spelling checks. However, it often freezes my MS Office apps and I find that disabling the app resolves the issue. Oftentimes, it gets a little bit intrusive with other things that I have to shut it off. Other than that, I hope it wasn't laggy with apps where I need it most. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Grammarly log everything you type, better try LanguageTool, which is Open source and doesn't track you.

Over corrects, makes mistakes far too often, and the price is crazy high.

By far the best, and they know it. There is a reason the price is higher than anything else by a fair amount, but you will save that much time and effort easily if you go back and look at how much time you would have taken with other applications or more proofreading, etc.

That being said, for a few unique audiences other solutions may be better. For instance, for a serious writer like someone's job revolves around writing, ProWritingAid is likely better because it adds functionality to assist you to become the best writer you can be. For almost everyone else, though, Grammarly is it.

I would highly recommend looking at time spent versus other products and add on to that, Grammarly has the best security and privacy practices out there. No selling your data and they keep the minimum they need to keep your account in order. Some other companies get a little too vague for the amount of permissions they request.
