I use ProWritingAid to edit my articles and keep everything I write error-free.

Pros
I love how ubiquitous ProWritingAid is. With the Chrome, Microsoft Word and Google Docs extensions, I am protected nearly everywhere I write. It is so easy to set up and use. ProWritingAid catches all my grammar and punctuation mistakes. It is an integral part of my editing process.

Cons
The pricing is a bit steep, but it's still cheaper than most other grammar checking software on the market.

Good application. It has a flat price for the year.

Pros
I like this program more than the others I have used. The explanations to why an error has appeared are more clear, and it gives easy fixes for them. Also, the recommendations on word choice and style are good. It can pick up the purpose of the writing and change the language from the perspective of your goals.

Cons
The plagiarism feature is not included in the yearly package, the cost is extra.

Review Source: Capterra

I'm a self-published author running a small press and I couldn't afford to be in business without the help of ProWritingAid's excellent software. I depend on it to deliver clean, readable drafts each and every time I publish a new novel.

Pros
I absolutely love the flexibility and platform support that ProWritingAid offers. No matter which platform or software you use to get your writing done, ProWritingAid supports it — and does it well! When taken feature for feature, comparatively Grammarly and other similar writing software can't compete. And did I mention the price? A lifetime subscription is worth its weight in gold for anyone who considers themselves a professional writer, no matter the medium.

Cons
There are some bugs in the software, and they vary depending on which platform you're using, but they're easy to overlook given the overall value proposition that ProWritingAid offers. I wouldn't use anything else.

Great Site To Help Edit

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

I will continue to recommend this site/software to other people who love to write. Overall, this program can be downloaded to your computer. You can use it for Google Chrome and even Microsoft Office. It downloads super fast with no problem. Love it so much.

Pros
This site is one of my favorite sites and software programs. It is advanced just how I like it. There is also an option to upgrade to premium if needed. I love how I can work on so many elements of my writing with this site/software. I like to analyze, so this site helps me think about every part of my writing. I also like the grammar edit area and how ProWritingAid helps with issues with my sentences. I will write out loads of sentences I need help with and it picks out the sentences with no problem. I love how if I want to look at the overall progress of my work there is an option for it. It breaks it down in the toolbar area and explains what is going on with my work. I need this, so I can learn and work on becoming better.

Cons
Honestly, I dislike only one thing. I wish the price for the premium was lower. It isn't overly expensive, but the price could have a monthly price option. This would help so many people. The price could be like 10.99 a month for the premium option or something close to this price.

Pros
The features are nearly the same as Grammarly and some are even better. The pricing is far more affordable as compared to Grammarly Premium.

Cons
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.

Great Editing tool

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
ProwritingAid is one of the best editing tools I've found to catch missed and incorrect punctuation. 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. It's only a minor inconvenience, but unlike some other editing software, you can't start making corrections until it's entirely done the checking.

I liked the idea behind it and the pricing, but I'm sincerely disappointed.

It caused more problems than it solved. I spent hours trying to untangle all of the weird extra letters and duplicated paragraphs it created out of a weird glitch or lag. I'm not sure what happened but it often adds strange spacing, deletes entire paragraphs or duplicates a paragraph 3 or 4 times over. It was supposed to reduce my work not increase it.

My experience with PWA has been excellent from the beginning, and the price makes it a no-brainer!

Pros
I love PWA, it works seamlessly with word, google and, crucially for me, Scrivener. Scrivener is what I use to write my novels and being able to write/edit a Scrivener document in PWA has been a lifesaver. I love too that it works with Wordpress, which is what I use for my website. I always recommend PWA to my community.

Cons
The thing I like least is that the suggestion box is very big and sometimes gets in the way of reading the document.

A Great Alternative to Other Grammar Checkers

Prowritingaid is a decent alternative to other grammar checker programs out there, and I feel they have attractive pricing.

Pros
1) They offer a lifetime pricing option which I prefer over a monthly recurring bill. 2) I am a heavy user of Scrivener, and Prowritingaid works with Scrivener projects. 3) The seamless thesaurus feature helps me to craft stronger points and sentences.

Cons
1) I feel they should offer a monthly plan, their smallest package is an annual plan. 2) Using Prowritingaid, I'm always receiving suggestions to add commas in places where it's not needed, and there is no way to tell the software to ignore this.

An acceptable helper for your personal editing.

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

I personally find editing a boring, not-so-fun time. I like re-writing, drafting, but editing is just blech. ProWritingAid helps that process go faster (even if not at human level). I previously used desktop applications to get my editing done. And while those worked maybe slightly better than ProWritingAid, it was less up-to-date, and didn't work at all online. Considering I write almost exclusively on a light device (chromebook), a desktop app really isn't a regular option for me. Editing was painful enough, I didn't want to switch to my desktop, or big 'topper if I was out and about. So, ProWritingAid does work well for me.

Pros
ProWritingAid simply drops in my browser. That's a plus. It offers a lot of the types of editing I need in my types of writing. Many others are just glorified spell and grammar checkers. I need more than that. I need an editor. But for the most part, I'm to cheap to get a human, so ProWritingAid helps me get some of the way there!

Cons
Like many electronic editing tools, ProWritingAid isn't perfect. It can get confused. I find that the "drop in" browser extension is a little annoying at times. The web front end provides me with more features that I regularly need. Which is ultimately what I was looking for. Some of the pop-up helps actually get annoying (But not my primary use-case).

Review Source: Capterra

Not a bad thing to say about ProWritingAid thus far. It's inexpensive, and has helped tune my writing style so I'm faster and more confident about it. With all the tweaking options available (and plug-ability), you're almost never without it. That said, Grammarly has its purpose, and I'd perhaps consider keeping free Grammarly around for its browser-based tool. While I'd advocate using both, if only choosing one I'd opt for ProWritingAid.

Pros
I love how ProWritingAid plugs into MS Word and Scrivener, so both authors and other professionals can utilize the power of this service. The price is very affordable, and the features aren't matched by any competitors to my knowledge. It's great to also 'tune' PWA to your writing style, so it doesn't offer irrelevant suggestions. Another cool feature is Plagiarism checks, so if you hire blog content writers, you can check to see if their content is unique. The same is useful for students who want to check their work against internet sources.

Cons
While ProWritingAid is great, for some platforms that requires short snippets of content like e-commerce product pages, you may be better off with Grammarly. This is because PWA has more of a 'style' focus rather than 'grammar' focus. Perhaps the ultimate approach is to start with PWA to get your writing style mastered offline, then use Grammarly for browser-based usage when writing emails and short snippets of online content (to not get style suggestions where its superfluous).

It helped me a great deal to improve my style. I initially used Grammarly and just of curiosity, I tried ProWritingAid -- only to learn that software can go beyond grammar and spelling. I feel like I grew as a writer by using ProWritingAid. However, it is a bit of pricey and perhaps some different grades/options can be introduced to satisfy variety of users.

Pros
ProWritingAid contains a number of features that will not only instantly correct and suggest alternative wording but that will gradually improve your overall writing skills. Unlike the popular competition, ProwritingAid has a more comprehensively take on writing, it goes beyond just correcting grammar and spelling but help you enhance your style as well. It provides a number of reports that can help you track the improvement of your writing skills. And of top of that, it works in Google Docs -- where all of my writing takes place. :)

Cons
It would be nice to have extensions for a variety of browsers, including Safari. But honestly, what I like the least about it is a price!

Overall I view it as a critical tool for myself as a writer. I've used it on professional letters for my day job as well as every self-published novel. For the price it's more than worth it.

Pros
It covers so many aspects of writing and editing that I can't imagine publishing without it. I use it even after I've run my book past the editor because it catches some things that humans don't.

There are definitely some things it doesn't catch well. However, customer support is receptive to suggestions.

I signed up for a ProWritingAid trial after reading a review about it. I'd been a paying client with Grammarly for years, but my experience with PWA during the trial period alone made me a convert, and I haven't looked back since. Fantastical product!

Pros
ProWritingAid is an incredibly comprehensive editing software. How many of its editing categories you look at and implement is up to you and how much time you have available, but they're always there. The software stands head and shoulders above competitors in this regard. It's also, for the budget-conscious, a lot more affordable. True value for money - the best investment anyone who works with words in any capacity can make!

Cons
Not sure if it's a glitch, but sometimes when I accept an edit, then undo, it's unable to. Also, it doesn't catch every single grammar mistake (9 times out of 10 it does, though), so I'd advise to have the free version of Grammarly installed as a backup.
