7 grammar checker apps analyzed

If you are considering using a grammar checking app but are not sure which one would work well for you or your student, you are in luck.  The blog, Daily Writing Tips, has done the analyzing for you.

To test the various apps, Daily Writing Tips submitted a sentence written with four errors:  a missing comma, a misspelled word, a verb problem and a capitalization error.

The apps reviewed, and the number of errors found by each one, include:

  • Google Docs (2)
  • Microsoft Word (4)
  • Grammarly (4)
  • ProWritingAid (4)
  • Hemingway Editor (1)
  • After the Deadline (2)
  • Ginger (3)

The review of the apps recommends certain apps for certain kinds of writing.  If you are a teacher or are looking for an app for a student, Grammarly has the added benefit of explaining in detail why errors are wrong.
