Hooked on Grammarly
Last Update: Oct 14, 2016
Over the past few months, there has been several blogs on Grammarly. Being a Microsoft Word user, I relied on Word’s spelling check and Readability Index to analyze my writing. I have heard of Grammarly but have shied away from it because of the required subscription. At least that is what I thought.
Because of the blogs, I started looking into it, and glad that I did. I am not a premium subscriber, for now I am sticking to the free add-in for the Chrome browser. I am very pleasantly surprised. When running Facebook, WA, and other apps under Chrome, Grammarly is in the background checking spelling and punctuation. It is similar to the Auto-correct in Word. With the Chrome add-in, it works on all apps running under this browser.
With the Chrome add-in, Grammarly sits patiently as you type and warns you as errors show up (See below). Remember, it does the same if you are in WA when writing Messages.
I am not sure if I am ready to pay for a premium subscription for now. I see that it is available as a plug-in on Word, We will see.
I thank the members who wrote blogs about Grammarly and bringing it to my attention.
