Pros

I love the user interface--it is perfect and I love easy-to-use software. Moreover, it is extremely intuitive with figuring out how to use the app and pull information from it.
And again, the UI is very nice and makes using the software very enjoyable.
I used Guru to gain new clients after my children were born. It was a great way to make money remotely and provided me a larger scope to reach clients.

Pros

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.
It's so comprehensive and I can't wait until I can save up the money to buy the program. I recommended it to my girls to help them with school papers because I found it so helpful for my own writing.
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.

Cons

I never used it it was so hard to search for information and I wasnt always sure that the information was up to date. Do not have these problems with Guru.
It's really a pain when you need to edit already existing cards.
What I like least, there hasn't been much that I've found with Guru that is bad. Only thing that has caused some trouble is the plug-in makes Chrome crash every so often.

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.

ProWritingAid

Help for budding writters

Reviewed a year ago

I am using it for creative writing.

Pros

All reports are helpful. I am using Style, Grammar and Thesaurus. They are truly helpful and easy to use.

Cons

It crashes some times. This could be my problem though; I am not a tech guru...
