Just Loving it and I'm telling everyone.
Not Happy 2/5
By Alisha Workman
My husband and I found Grammarly a while ago and really liked how easy it was to use on the pc. I have done away with the pc and now do everything on and iPad Pro with keyboard. I haven’t had a problem transitioning over my more frequently used programs EXCEPT for this one.
1. The app creates a supplemental keyboard you can access in the same way you do emojis. Grammarly didn’t work on Google Docs on the PC, so I didn’t expect the app to be any different, however with the PC, you could copy to Grammarly, check for errors and then transfer it back. This app has no way of doing that. It is basically a useless app in itself. It just provides the code for the keyboard addition.
2. The keyboard tells you what errors there are and right above it references the sentence so you understand the context of the error. It does not, however, highlight where it is in the text. So if I don’t agree with it, I can’t read more of the sentence or make changes other than those highlighted.
3. Glitchy. I scanned a paper and it gave me a list of errors. As I accepted or skipped a few, the app would scroll to the front of the list and start over again. Sometimes it would remove spaces and punctuation as well.
I really do hope this gets fixed. I really like the program when it’s working.
Security concerns 1/5
By Ed Zar
This is the best way for you to give out your passwords, login info, PIN numbers, credit card numbers, or anything you type sent back to this company. I don’t recommend it for security purposes. Everything you type is captured and submitted back to them.
Love the full product, not the keyboard. 2/5
I’m a premium subscriber that loves the full app. The keyboard is a great idea with good functionality, but we need the full app on iPad. There’s no reason not to have it. Make it happen.
So close to a real keyboard replacement. 3/5
The Grammarly correction engine receives an A. The keyboard is a b-. Three changes overall.
Two improvements need to be made asap.
1) Landscape keyboard layout. (Use the screen real estate better.)
2) Swype texting.
A third is optional.
3) Optional keyboard color schemes. (Dark mode at least.)
The keyboard function Vs. Desktop function. 2/5
By BigHead Leibo
The keyboard function is not at the same level as the desktop app as it's lacking the diverse dictionary, personalized settings.
Josey86 describes this keyboard as worst than anything out there. Well, I don't understand it. Is there an extra star to put it? I want to give 6. Clearly exceeding expectations.
This keyboard is made for non-native English-speaking professionals. Which, this is me. I learned good English through my long life and can say my learned English is well above average.
After working two months using this keyboard, the quality of my reports is improving faster. My weakness is accuracy (I need a small paperback English handbook on my side all the time)
Saying that, this is the closest to a Magic act I've ever seen. Just an example: for non-English speakers, there is always confusion between disease and decease; device and device, advice and advice, etc. There are so many ”close calls” that your brain will never be able to catch. This corrector works in context.
If you are a native speaker, and you write above average advanced English, don't use it. For the bunch that must work in the USA and has no time to follow the additional training, Grammarly is the way to go.
By the way, I need this in French, Portuguese and Italian. For Spanish it will be an annoyance.
Grammar check? 2/5
I'm writing this while using Grammarly to show you the grammar correction or lack thair of it will does did have has not corrected my grammar only spelling.............hi........,,,,cupcake.
Not exactly what I was expecting from the app
Additionally: I started receiving bot calls shortly after. Not sure if it had anything to do with the app but BBB should conduct an investigation
Doesn't seem to work 1/5
I purposely would put punctuations in the wrong place and jumble up sentences to test it out and all it seems to catch are misspelled words.
Developers seem to listen 4/5
I mentioned a bug which was in the keyboard however small it may have been about a month ago. Now with the latest version, it has been fixed. Kudos to them for actually listening. One reason many people don't utilize iOS keyboard applications is because of the bugs, so seeing them fixed is awesome. The auto-correction is really awesome as well as the grammar suggestions are occasionally neat. Only real things which I believe would be nice to see would be true predictive typing for those who use it as well as a dynamic theme similar to the stock keyboard. Currently, the white theme looks very out of place while replying to messages from quick reply pull-down alerts.
Wow, Horrible App! 1/5
I have a TBI and with it Memory Loss and I forget words, so I pause a lot when talking and prefer texting and email, which gives me more time to pull the words.
Usually I can get the word close enough that google or a spell App will recognize and fix, and for the most part this App did do that.
But I would hit enter to post or send, and then realize it changed little words while I was typing “had” to “has”, “on” to “in”, etc. and even some bigger words making my sentences sound incoherent and making me seem Retarded!
I hate that word, but with my Brain Injury that’s how people look at me when I can’t talk normal, I DON’T need your App making my Typing look like that also!
Hate it 1/5
I absolutely hate this keyboard. I would give it a negative 10if possible. Deleting the app.
The best 5/5
By far it's a life savior
It doesn't tell me when to use a comma or a period most of the time. I write sentences by mistake to see if it would tell me if I need to put a comma or a period when needed. Most of the time it doesn't not
Has a lot of potential 4/5
By Bek hold
Grammarly Keyboard is great, but it can use some improvements.
I think that an option for a better sentence should be there. For example, the Sentence Fragments are shown in the app on a computer, but not on a mobile device.
I think that the premium should be shown. I want the best of my writing, this also includes a casual text.
I really do think that this app has a lot of potential. Just needs some improvements
By Vivacious Libra
I love the desktop verson! And I am SO Happy they FINALLY made a companion app
Perfect - several additions needed 5/5
By Mavin Stemsy
Please include a dark theme and a swipe feature.
Love it! 5/5
I love this application because I’m very OCD about writing and spelling, and Grammarly helps me feel sure that I’m doing a good job.
I have papers for school that I need to write and it is awesome. I get A’s on almost every paper. It helped me write this Review!
Not Good 2/5
I got suckered into an annual membership and I’m regretting in more by the minute. The keyboard only works about 1/4 of the time. The only reason it is getting two stars is not for the iOS app but the Mac app, which works okay.
Kept it simple yet powerful. 5/5
This keyboard has saved my grammar life on numerous occasions. It makes staying grammatically correct even when typing with the limitations of a digital, phone keyboard a breeze. I also like that it will check your spelling and for some words ask you if it's a new word or a real word just spelled incorrectly. The ability to add words to the dictionary quickly is a lovely feature.
“Grammarly needs an internet connection to check your writing”
(Meanwhile LTE is shown on the top right hand side)
Not bad 3/5
It's getting better. This is my current keyboard at the moment. Love the concept. Looking forward to the updates.
By RAVENPOTTER aka a memelord
It’s nice to use for writing stuff, it picks up on random mistakes I make while writing (I’m really bad and I misspell things and can’t grammar XD) I’m using it to help me write in school
It’s pretty good and helpful, thx for reading :)
Text error 5/5
By Drew breton
This is a wonderful app and have been recommending it to everyone i know, however, there's a slight error when using it to text, you see it likes to carry over the last word from the previous message, i have not noticed it jump from more than one conversation, but its the only problem i have and is to small to cause any damage. 9.9/10
The best 5/5
It is my secret weapon for essays.
By We sin nombre
Is a very good app. 💕
Not worth it 3/5
The app wouldn't even make the corrections displayed in their App Store Video. Unknown if one needs a premium account to unlock more grammar catches.
Not good enough 3/5
I give it three stars because it does not catch “my” mistakes. Example: your and you’re. It also encourages me to make grammar errors example changing were to was. I kind of feel like giving it two stars but if it and when it is doing its job I notice how my sentence structure changes.
By Miraculous idiot
I love this and writing on wattpad so yay
Has really improved my grammar. 5/5
Would recommend to anyone.
Good for essays 4/5
Helped me fix many mistakes in my essays such us spelling, comma placement, etc.
Gave me 10+ things wrong on essay 1/5
This is not a good gamer checking app I do not recommend this
This app is an Aid 5/5
By Fhety rigged
If you think this app is going to make you an eloquent speaker or a grammar god overnight than I’m sorry to disappoint you but that’s not happening lol This app is strictly an aid, a second pair of eyes that catches mistakes even a seasoned writer wouldn’t usually catch the first time around. 5 Stars, 10/10 Highly Recommend.
Keyboard does not show up 1/5
I tried to activate the keyboard but after downloading the app and following the directions, the keyboard does not show up in my available list of keyboard additions.
Not working as planned 2/5
I've noticed that no commas and etc to any of my sentences. That was the main reason I downloaded this app for those types of corrections. To test it out I inserted the same sentenced that is demonstrated in the demo that is corrected and no correction for me.
Bad... Free, see for yourself 1/5
By TonyP, Bloomington IN
You may as well get it and give it a chance but it's a very noticeable step down from Apple's auto correct, and probably from Android too.
The app is super buggy! 1/5
I love Grammarly, however, the iPhone app is quite buggy. I implore you guys to do some quality testing before the next release. So far, I’m not having a great experience. Today, it was changing “I’m” to “Im.” FROM: IOS11 and IPHONE 7 PLUS USER
Great product. 4/5
Very useful when sending quick text and brain and fingers are on different speeds.
Eh sadly 3/5
Had to remove, causes my phone to glitch and be slow. Doesn’t always see my mistakes. But cool
I used this app for English and I trusted it. It got a d in Grammar
Premium is a waste of money 1/5
By Vulgar demos
This app isn't anything like the web service. It is simply an autocorrect keyboard that functions much less well than the native iOS keyboard. It claims to be able to scan entire text fields, yet it only shows you a single correction at a time and you have no idea where it is in your paper. This is okay for a few sentences, but not for proofing anything longer than that. I Recommend using their free web service since premium doesn’t offer any useful functionality yet.
Needs work 2/5
By A random fat black guy
I love the app and it's features... But it is very glitchy. I always have to wait on the keyboard to load up before it will start working.
Not Even Close. Pass. 1/5
I really wanted to love this keyboard, because I love Grammarly’s other products. This just isn’t even close to the typical Grammarly standard. The built in autocorrect is horrible - it doesn’t catch the majority of typical phone typos and there is a delay on deciding if a word is right or not. It just takes forever to type anything, because you have to type every word perfectly every time, which totally defeats the purpose. This keyboard just isn’t even close to the ability of the built in key keyboard. It doesn’t actually do anything with the grammar of what you type, so it’s a bit misleading. This keyboard just fell so far short.
I, too, have no idea how this keyboard has such a high rating. I have the latest iPhone (as of writing this review) so I know the lag isn’t my phone. I have had no problems with any other third party keyboards or any other apps, so all evidence points to the issue being this keyboard. Sorry Grammarly, but I’m going to pass on this keyboard.
Very Misleading. 1/5
By YouTuber Beast
The app doesn’t feature what it actually portrays. It works like any other grammar keyboard. Doesn’t fix add any grammars, just looks for spelling mistakes.
This is the best app I ever downloaded. I am a writer but I'm failing in English and this is helping with spelling and improving my writing.
Good, some glitches 3/5
It's a great app. But, I've experienced the same glitches. It will just only type "q" and I have to reset the app
No Option to Turn on Keyboard 3/5
Under Settings -> Grammarly, there is no Keyboard option. There is only Siri and Search.
Cannot even turn it on so it’s useless.
So I turned my phone off and on and like magic, the keyboard appeared. Must be an iOS11 glitch. No surprise there.
Grammarly should suggest restarting a device on their set-up screen.
Good for some, not for others 3/5
Overall, Grammarly is a nice app for typos, word placement, and sentence correction. It works best with small emails and projects with little information to process. However, it has some kinks that can be worked out.
For Ipad/Iphone use, when I check my whole 5 page book chapters, Grammarly doesn't fix anything, and will tend to crash. I have tried re-downloading. It doesn't work.
If you're looking for spelling, this app is an option. If you're looking to help odd sentence structure and writing in general, I suggest look for another app. Grammarly suggests a few ways to edit sentences like adding a word or comma, but doesn't offer alternative sentences, word replacement, etc.
I do love the keyboard layout, I just wish this was easier to use. I had a lengthy process just to install a keyboard that doesn't work. My computer wouldn't accept the application.
