ProWritingAid Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about ProWritingAid's features:

Lucy J.

ProwritingAid is the best when it comes to correct grammar

2019-08-11

Pro writing aid is recommended primarily to small departments, as it does not provide enough features to carry the documentation and grammar of huge amounts of documents (such as a large company).

Pros

The biggest advantage of pro writing aid is that it is very easily integrated into document creation services, such as those included in the Microsoft office suite.

Cons

This does not have team chat management tools, since it does not have a section oriented towards group collaboration. Likewise, it does not facilitate the sharing of documents with which one works.

Best

2020-11-11

I now run everything through it including web content.

Pros

It's the best thing I've happened on in some time.

Cons

Sometimes I have issues with it working, but that has more to do with my browser management than the product

Feedback - Manuscripts

2020-05-08

ProWriting can be a very helpful tool if it can work faster on huge documents. It freezes when I work on Manuscripts.

Pros

Reporting is a nice feature, and I enjoy the product.

Cons

It can't handle huge documents. It freezes and wastes time.

A useful tool for serious writers!

2020-06-01

I use the ProWriting Aid in drafting requirement documents, meeting notes, and other miscellaneous copy for blog posts and social media.

Pros

I enjoy the readability score, helpful suggestions, and weekly report provided by the ProWritingAid.

Cons

Some of the suggestions seem out of context and almost "one-size fits all". they are not always applicable to the message I'm trying to convey.

UX, UI could be better.

ProWritingAid review. Notes from a small island (in the south pacific)

2019-09-11

I've used the premium version for 18 months and have based my comments on my experience in that time.

Pros

But the real value is in the deeper reports. Don't be put off by the number of them - my advice is to have find out which ones you find most useful.

Cons

My main criticisms over the last 18 months have been: 1. No integration with Google Docs - this has now been released and works well. 2.

Great Editing tool

2019-11-24

Although I send my work to an editor, ProWritingAid helps me to clean up my work so my editor can do a better job. The price point is extremely affordable and well worth it.

Pros

From the wrong spaces between ellipses to dropped quotations marks, this is where ProWritingAid excels and sets itself apart from other editing software.

Cons

ProwritingAid works quickly when editing a short document, but if you want to do a lengthy document (More than several pages) at once, there will be a lag while it works.

The Best Writing Aid

2020-08-09

It is embarrassing having the reader focused on spelling or grammatical errors, rather than getting your point across in communication. ProWritingAid prevents these mishaps with its add-ons for essential applications like Chrome or Google Docs.

Pros

ProWritingAid lets me choose and be in control.

Cons

No add-ons for MS Word alternatives like WPS Office or Open Office.

Way better than Grammarly

2019-07-30

ProWritingAid has helped reduce the time it takes to get from first to final draft by half. Our content and copy is written by many people, with all kinds of writing backgrounds.

Pros

I love ProWritingAid because there are so many helpful reports that allow you to get as detailed as you want when editing.

Cons

I wish there was a way to use this on a mobile device.

Perfect for Fiction and Non-Fiction

2020-10-03

Saves money by creating a well edited document if other professional editing us required.

Pros

Excellent and wide-ranging editing and document analysis features.

Cons

While using one feature of the editing software on a large segment of copy, the software will jump among the sub-features.

Ease of academic editing

2019-07-31

I routinely submit academic papers to peer review so it has been a very useful and cost effective tool to ensure errors do not proceed to the referees.

Pros

The merits of this software are seamless integration into Word, google docs, and online whenever I need to edit no matter the place.

Cons

The only aspect I like least about the software is sometimes lengthy times to run different functions in long documents. This is easily remedied by selecting smaller portions of text.

ProWritingAid has literally helped me to become a better writer

2018-07-12

I plug every single piece of writing that I do into ProWritingAid, and as a full time writer that means I use it often! I am writing a book write now and after the first draft is done I plan to plug each chapter into the program so I will have a cleaner copy for my editor to go through. I hope this will make the final product a higher quality. I recommend prowritingaid often to friends and colleagues and I plan to keep using it for the foreseeable future.

Pros

It's easy to load up a document and have it analyze several layers of content. I love that it can 1) Spit out a summary of your documents grade and show you why it received a certain grade for each layer of analysis 2) Shows you how can improve the style of your writing and where you need to check again 3) Analyze your grammar and show you what you might need to correct I plug every single piece of sales copy I write into the program and it has helped me to pump out some great finished content.

Cons

It doesn't auto save as I am used to from using google docs, and you need to be careful not to close out of the document until you either save it or copy and paste the content into its final destination.

Create Error free writings with ProWriting Aid

2019-04-08

User-friendly software that makes document editing and correction a less tedious task. The suggestions are quite accurate to an extent and are helpful to give an error-free end product.

Pros

Moreover, one can also filter various types of errors, which is like so amazing.

Cons

The software is a bit high-priced. And at times it suggests for the changes which deem to be incorrect. Although that does not account for that big a concern, but it would be really great if we could sort for the specific types of suggestions and not ponder over the ones that are unnecessary.

Accelerate your time to Edit with precision and accuracy

2021-05-28

The depth of the reports, the speed of using the software, and the integrations sold it from that point.

Pros

ProWritingAid integrates easily with our workflow and software in order to speed up the editing process and introduce diversity in the copy, pointing out weaknesses that other software misses.

Cons

We were used to being able to import lists of common terms, but there was not an obvious way to do the same, and research into this did not prove fruitful in changing that.

Great Choice for Secure and Smart Grammar Checking

2019-02-19

It literally takes a couple of minutes to figure out the user-friendly tools and setting up reports to review your areas for improvement.

Pros

It is a friendly editing, style, and grammar checker software that contains most of the useful features you could want as a professional, newbie writer, or editor. Once you have begun to use it, it takes less than ten minutes to figure it out. The software is intuitive and the toolbar is quick to understand and informative about your errors. It can easily locate repetitiveness in sentences, which I really like. Additionally, writers will be happy to know that Google Docs and Scrivener can be combined with ProWritingAid, which makes it a very convenient-to-use checker. I love that it is inexpensive and costs less than a hundred dollars for an annual subscription compared to other types of grammar software.

Cons

LaTex, a popular document preparation system, is also unfriendly with the software.

It's a great option for proofreading long documents

2019-01-30

It will catch mistakes in your documents and give you the solution or suggestion for a correct fix.

Pros

I like the visual look to it; it makes correcting documents easy on the eyes and less confusing.

Cons

There isn't many customer service options if you run into errors and issues. It may not have some of the features you are used to with other similar programs.
