Better writing with Grammarly
What to do

It is free to download, and you can start using it without having to pay for an upgrade straight away. I began to use it this way, but I soon went on to using the premium service because it just wasn’t enough for me. The free app is a taster of what you can expect to be available in the app.

7 Great things about Grammarly
#1 Once you have signed up, logged in and sorted out your password for your account, it is best that you sort out your settings as well in the profile section. I am from the UK, so I set my writing preference to British English.
#2 According to document type it will check contextual spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and style. You can control whether or not you want these to be on or off.
#3 Each piece of writing that you choose to upload from your word processing app like pages or google docs you can choose what style of writing you are doing as not everything will be the same. Below are the settings you can readjust each time you write a new piece of work.
– Academic – General academic, essay, report, case study, book/literature review, research proposal, research results, dissertation, Admission letter.
– Business – general business, business letter, business email, report, memo, proposal, article/blog post, ad/website copy.
– Technical – General technical, end-user assistance document, technical documentation, marketing document.
– Medical – General medical, regulatory writing, educational writing.
– Creative – General creative, creative nonfiction, novel, script, short story.
– Casual setting – general casual, personal email, personal blog post.
#4 You can download the Grammarly app for Chrome and also for OS X. I have done both as I find it more useful that way. Grammarly does check a lot of your work, but it does not do everything. So when I have completed my article, I upload it to Grammarly then when I uploaded the same piece of work to my blog it also does another check there also.
#5 You can check your work for plagiarism, just in case you forgot to mention who it was who wrote that quote that you referred to in your article.
#6 Grammarly is so easy to use, it becomes second nature, and you are left wondering how on earth did I manage all these years without it?
#7 Grammarly is FREE to use, and it stores all of your documents you have downloaded in one place, so you have a backup of your work, no more misplaced documents.
There is only one fault I would say about Grammarly, well two if I am honest.
1 – You cannot access it on your tablet or mobile phone yet, it is only for laptops or desktops.
2 – It does not check all of your work!
***There is now an app for grammarly, which is fantastic!!!
