Pros

The integration in the browser and many applications is great, the ease of use and innovative user interface, the suggestions also the impressions about the whole paragraph is appreciated and helpful.
What I like the most about this software is that it corrects your grammar on the internet better than when you're using software to write your assignments haha.
Grammarly is perfect for anyone looking to improve their writing. It’s even better for businesses to make sure every ad copy is perfectly put in public.

Pros

It's software like this that helps our articles stand out from the rest of the junk. The finished content after a quick run through with ProWritingAid is exactly what Google and people love.
This company also has excellent customer service and continues to improve and add to the software. They also have an option for an extremely affordable lifetime purchase.
I like that it helps make my writing come across better. I am not the best writer and ProWritingAid is better than gram... in usability and the information it provides.

Cons

It tries to correct a few correct sentences and ends up making them wrong. This is annoying somtimes.
None so far as i am concerned so i really have no negative comments to say about this product.
Errors or poor word choices are highlighted for me, and I have the option of choosing their correction, making my own correction, or ignoring it.

Cons

There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this software. It might irritate to have the errors exposed so often.
Missed too many mistakes. It always suggests very simple things that need to be corrected.
It didn't have sentence re-phraser, which is required a lot specially for bloggers. Also, there is no Android app available.

I am very amazed with this Program, GRAB IT! it is worth SPENDING

Reviewed 2 years ago

Esteem The way to esteem is utilization, yet it is essential to take note that Grammarly contains a free arrangement level, better than that of ProWritingAid. Be that as it may, with regards to yearly memberships, ProWritingAid costs are altogether lower contrasted with Grammarly Premium. Convenience Both Grammarly and ProWritingAid are truly usable. The Grammarly interface on all applications appears...

Pros

For my purposes, Grammarly Premium is worth the effort. The free form is a valuable apparatus, and better than not having a second arrangement of eyes investigate your composing. It will distinguish definitely more spelling and language structure botches than your commonplace free checker. In the event that you're an author on a tight spending plan, have a go at introducing Grammarly and test it for yourself.

Cons

Gigantic slacks when altering bigger pieces of text. Acclimatization can set aside time. It doesn't generally work impeccably. Grammarly just works in English.

Vendor response

Hi Robert, Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. We especially love hearing that you are finding value in Grammarly Premium! As for your comment about delays in checking your text, we've shared it with our development team. However, if Grammarly takes more than a few seconds to check your text, please contact us at https://gram.ly/3wSqY0D. We'll be happy to take a closer look into this issue for you. Thanks again, Grammarly support team

University Recommended

Reviewed 3 years ago

We use this in University, and it's amazing. It makes student life easier, especially for non-native English speakers. I'm a non-native English speaker at university and I use it every day with my assignments. This is because it's the one recommended.

Pros

I love the friendly design, it's childish and inviting. I love the font. I love the color. THE NAMING IS WITTY. I love the extension of the web. It helps in a lot of the text boxes found on the web. I love the emoji icon that lets you know if your spellings are correct or if you don't have any grama issues.

Cons

I don't like the logo. It's a cliche. And most of the features that are good are on the paid plan, unlike ProWritingAid.

If you're a student or an educator, please feel free to submit a support ticket at https://gram.ly/3wSqY0D using your school email address, and we'll see how we can help make Grammarly more affordable for you.

Unmatchable Grammar Tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

I used ProWritingAid previously and must say that Grammarly can be best choice if you are just looking for a simple grammar assistant. It is clean and easy to use.

Pros

Grammarly is amazing, easy-to-use and powerful writing assistant. I love the synonyms suggestions, punctuation error detections, and writing style guide. Also, the support for different version of English language is appreciable.Furthermore, it comes with an offline tool, chrome extension, and mobile keyword that never leaves you alone to make mistakes.

Cons

The punctuation suggestions are sometimes wrong and can be annoying.

Vendor response

Hi Komal, Thanks for your kind words! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. We strive to provide an excellent experience for all users, and comments like this mean a lot to us! Please know that you can send us an example at https://gram.ly/3wSqY0D when you disagree with Grammarly's suggestion, so we can have a team member take a closer look.

Good general grammar improvement, nothing stellar

Reviewed 5 years ago

Grammarly is useful to improve your email messages no matter what you use to write your mails. Compatibility over lots of platforms including the web (through Chrome) and the desktop app makes it a pretty powerful tool for general use. I'm a fiction writer and I use a combination of Grammarly and ProWritingAid as they both catch different grammar mistakes/offer different suggestions

Pros

- Integrates with chrome - Improves general grammar, although not perfect. - Double click words to show synonyms (useful feature)

Cons

- Doesn't always catch incorrect grammar - Synonym database isn't huge

Data loss and integration woes

Reviewed 5 years ago

In editing, a good piece of software makes the work very smooth. In writing, a good piece of software makes the editing process less onerous and extensive. It seemed that Grammarly was going to replace ProWritingAid as my go-to software. But as the shine wore thin, the deficiencies became obvious pretty quickly. And the Data Loss was the last straw.

Pros

1. It integrated with the browser 2. It also had a stand-alone client 3. The interface was intuitive 4. The results and statistics were great.

Cons

1. The statistics were based on the number of errors shown, not the number of errors corrected 2. The browser interface interfered with typing at times 3. Loss of Data and support was unhelpful

Not a lot of trust that it works

Reviewed 3 years ago

I was very happy with the trial and bought the yearly subscription. The cost vs Grammarly is significantly less and appeared to work close enough to as well. After I started working in it I noticed it didn't catch nearly as much as Grammarly. It will still be helpful for emails and its not even in the league of Grammarly. Yes Grammarly is the big player but their cost is hard to swallow for my simple business email corrections.

Pros

-Yearly Cost vs main competitor -Easy to install -Works with web browsers & Microsoft outlook -Customer support

Cons

-Missed too many mistakes -It always suggests very simple things that need to be corrected. The AI isn't smart enough, yet, to see it's a closing and not an incomplete sentence. It gives you the ability to ignore the rule, but will it miss a true error then?

ProWritingAid Experience (Limited Review)

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have only been using ProWritingAid for 1-day now, and hope my experience improves over time. A install file for Mac users would be highly appreciated as well.

Pros

The LinkedIn feature is great, but still not as efficient as Grammarly. However, I appreciate the low CPU consumption by ProWritingAid complared to Grammarly.

Cons

The LinkedIn feature is not always accurate and ProWritingAid does not seem to be fully optimised with Gmail. There are many instances where ProWritingAid does not pick up sentence errors and spelling mistakes in Gmail.

When using it with Google Docs, the changes aren't applied in real-time but after making all the suggested changes you have to "approve" them and they're implemented after that, which may sometimes be time-consuming.

I love ProWritingAid's flexibility; it gives you the option to add unfamiliar words to your dictionary, and it can ignore expressions you want to keep.

Cons

More intelligence, so that the word options it displays are closer to the writer's intended meaning. Curious why I need to sign into a premium to see more editorial options?

Wish I had it sooner...but there are some glaring issues.

Reviewed 3 years ago

All that being said, I still feel the plugin is worth it and plan to get the lifetime subscription as soon as my trial is over. Until PRA can sort out its glaring issues above, I have a workaround where I copy the text before saving it — just in case I run into the same issue. However, I can't do anything about the quotation problem; that's on PRA.

Pros

This has improved my manuscript significantly—it works right alongside my Grammarly plugin.

Cons

Three major issues: 1: When editing a manuscript, if you make any changes at all to any dialogue, ProWritingAid thinks you don't have closing quotation marks. So, you have to delete the quotations and re-do them. Every.single.time. 2. Using ProWritingAid with Fictionary is great, unless you spend three hours editing and polishing the most important scenes in your entire book (over 2,000 words worth), and when you exit the ProWritingAid plugin, and get an error message from Fictionary saying you've been signed out because of inactivity (despite being active for three hours). All of that work — GONE. Nothing saved. This is an issue with the plugin speaking to the site. 3. When I reached out to customer support, I still have not heard back yet (over 48 hours ago).

ProWritingAid Indivitual Lifetime Buyer review

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, it is helpful but not the best, and I purchased it assuming it would unlock some exceptional hidden features that are not available in the free version. However, I don't think I noticed any surprising features. But as I have a lifetime membership, I am excited to see upcoming features, which I believe will be available as a lifetime buyer, so I am hoping for the best in the future.

Pros

It gives several rephrases and synonyms for each selected world, if possible. It has a different reporting mechanism that helps determine the problems in long sentences, and it is more inexpensive than other grammar-checking platforms like Grammarly.

Cons

It does not correct the sentence by suggesting grammar fixes; when I recheck the sentence with Grammarly after fixing it via ProWritingAid, Grammarly sometimes still gives grammar errors. Sometimes both ProWritingAid and Grammarly contradict each other. I used the paid version of Grammarly for a few months. I believe that saves time when you have to work quickly during the working day, and quick auto-suggestion works well in Grammarly.Sometimes, when I have to reply quickly to someone with a grammatically correct sentence, when responses are slow, even on a 300 KBPS fiber optic connection, I can't respond quickly, thus feeling messed up.

Great Program, but Grammarly and Wordtune are Better

Reviewed 2 years ago

I had a great experience with the program, even though I switched to Grammarly and Wordtune. I would still recommend it to someone who is looking for an affordable text processor.

Pros

You can try it for free to see if it's a good fit for your needs. Google Chrome and Microsoft Word integrate well with the software. It helps me appear more professional in my writing. With this software, you can write fiction, business, academic, or even blog and create content for any purpose. The reporting feature can also help you see your writing habits, so you can adjust them if necessary. I use the readability, pace, and other reports when working on a large article piece.

Cons

Apart from the fact that Grammarly and Wordtune are better than it, I don't have anything negative to say about it. While it's great, I could easily replace it with Grammarly and Wordtune. The other tools are just better, so I had to switch from ProWritingAid to them.

ProWritingAid

Makes you and your writing better!

Reviewed 5 years ago

It's the real deal. Makes me a better writer. That's enough for the subscription for me.

Pros

It covers many different writing angles at one time. Much better that free options out there and on a level with grammarly etc

Cons

Less integrations and would like it to work on more free web-based text than it currently does

ProWritingAid

A fine aid to polish your writing

Reviewed 4 years ago

I'm new to it but so far it is helpful.

Pros

Unobtrusive help flashes up to provide that extra polish you need when writing.

Cons

As it is with other software (Grammarly), the algorithm sometimes doesn't understand that some words are idiomatic and not held to the usual grammar standard.

Powerful but complicated to use

Reviewed 2 years ago

I had to jump to grammarly for my day to day tasks. The tool is powerful but complex to use for me.

Pros

The tool is really helpful and recommended for the writers with its varied functionalities for spell check, grammar check, style check, and more. There is a lot of features in the tool.

Cons

A lot of features make the tool very complex and confusing to use for general users.

Best integrations

Reviewed a month ago

I used Grammarly for 10 years but recently they keep threatening to discontinue support of integrations. Thier Microsoft Office Integration was official discontinued over a year ago although it is still available and functional but not promoted. Grammarly integrations are not that great and their where no improvements, things just got worse. The integrations in ProWritingAid all work and are easy to install.

Pros

ProWritingAid has the best integrations into Microsoft Office Suite, Windows Applications, and Web Browsers. Its standalone editor although based on Chrome, is very function and works well and imports a wide range of file formats. Rephrase sentence is a key functionality of ProWritingAid. If it determines something is not correct in your sentence, it will offer two alternatives. Often it will combine sentences when that makes sense to do so. It is quite uncanny how it can understand the meaning in your sentence and say the same thing in less words. Sometimes it gets the meaning of the sentence all wrong but I have learned ProWritingAid can't understand my grammar, neither will my readers and I best start again.

Cons

ProWriting Aid works differently than other products, such as Grammarly. Corrections in Grammarly are series of changes to each sentence till is "right" it is interactive, and each correction takes several edits. ProWritingAid offers to rephrase your sentences. The approach is different, and it takes some getting use too, but now that I've been using ProWritingAid for a while I prefer its approach.

ProWriting Aid is a Pro Writers tool!

Reviewed a year ago

I've used ProWriting Aid for years now and I love it. It's so handy to have the browser extension so I can use it wherever I'm writing anything. Overall I really love this tool

Pros

I love that it helps improve my writing in no time at all. The suggestions can help me become a better writer too as I see myself improving over time as I use the tool. I like how it can find over used words and sentences that don't flow correctly and help me to fix them. Generally just helps to improve my writing.

Cons

Some of the spelling and grammar suggestions aren't right so I use it with Grammarly free and take suggestions on board but don't accept every one of them.

I had Grammarly so what would ProWriting Aid Do for Me?

Reviewed 5 years ago

I highly recommend and use it daily!

Pros

I love this program! I use it every single day. The Echoes feature is amazing. I'm always shocked at how many duplicates I have in my books and resumes. I don't give a client a product or release a book without using this program!

Cons

Although I love ProWritingAid I also have to have Grammarly because each program catches different errors. It would be nice to have one program the did the work of both.
