Grammarly is a fantastic online tool for those who pride themselves in their online communication (sometimes referred to as “grammar-nazis”). While there are quite a few grammar checking apps available on Android, most of them require uploading pasting text into the app or uploading documents for analyzing. That’s where the new Grammarly Keyboard comes in.
A month after launching on iOS, Grammarly for Android works much the same way as the incredibly popular Chrome extension. By making a keyboard app, Grammarly can read text you’ve typed inside other apps, suggesting corrections as you go. Whether you’re shooting off an email, creating a post on Twitter, or just texting a loved one, Grammarly Keyboard makes sure your messages are mistake-free. Well, for the most part.
I deliberately typed out a few pretty awful sentences and Grammarly gave them the okay, so it still needs a little fine tuning. As it turns out, most of the enhanced grammar correction — style and vocabulary enhancements — is only available to premium users which means the app is more-or-less grammar correction “lite.” There’s also no glide-to-type feature quite yet, but Grammarly did say they’re already working on it.
The app is completely free to download, so there’s no reason to not give it a shot. Just keep in mind that it’s still very early and offers only a basic keyboard experience for now. Premium pricing starts at $29 a month or $11 if you pay for a year in advanced. You can download the app using the button below.
