Grammarly Grammar and Plagiarism Checker Online Review
If you’re someone who writes, you probably know how frustrating it is to miss a grammatical error after proofreading for hours. You’ve probably heard of many editing software, and you might be confused about which one’s right for you.
If you’re someone who… well, writes, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Grammarly. If you haven’t, no sweat—we’ve got you covered. We reviewed Grammarly and tested its features so we could help you quickly understand what’s good vs. what’s not so good about Grammarly.
Grammarly is a popular writing assistant that helps fix grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, and detect plagiarism. I’ve used the free version of Grammarly for years and recently made the switch to its premium version. So far, things have been nothing but smooth sailing.
How to Use Grammarly?
Grammarly is available as a web app, desktop client, browser add-on, and integration. You can also download Grammarly on your phone, which essentially integrates Grammarly to your keyboard.
All Grammarly tools—web app, add-on, desktop client, and integration—are available for all users. You don’t need a premium account for any of these.
Grammarly as a Web App
You can use Grammarly’s web app by visiting the website. On the top-right corner of the website, click Log in to access your Grammarly account. If you don’t have an account, click Log in and select I don’t have an account. Once you’ve logged into your account, you can upload or click New and type your text in.
Grammarly As A Desktop Application
If you’d like to download Grammarly onto your computer, go to the Grammarly website and click on the green Download Grammarly button.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed the app, launch and start typing. You’ll see Grammarly start making suggestions as you type.
If you click on the widget, you’ll see Grammarly’s suggestion.
You can either accept or dismiss the suggestion. If you’d like to turn it off, click on the Settings icon and turn off suggestions for that particular website or app.
Grammarly as a mobile keyboard
Go to your app store and search for Grammarly to download the mobile app.
Once you’ve downloaded Grammarly, the app will integrate Grammarly into your keyboard. As you start typing, Grammarly will offer suggestions just like you’d see when you turn on Android’s suggestions. Of course, Grammarly’s suggestions are far more refined.
If you click on the suggestion, you’ll see the suggestions as well as the explanation for it.
Grammarly as a Chrome Extension
Grammarly has a Chrome extension that works for all Chromium-based browsers, including Microsoft Edge. Download the extension by clicking on the blue Add to Chrome button.
