No swipe no love!! 1/5
In this day and age swiping is number one and you don't do that yet..sorry
No swipe type 4/5
The instant spell check's good, but the dev team can't be bothered to integrate swipe type capability. If this had swipe type, this would be the go-to keyboard. Competitors skulls rest easy knowing that Grammarly doesn't care about its end users' preferences.
Major Privacy Concern 2/5
Giving a company access to everything you type on your phone is insane to me personally. If you don’t care about your privacy, go for it I guess.
I’ve been using the website for creative writing though and it is useful but extremely rudimentary. It’s impossible to organize your docs as you can’t create folders. That’s baffling to me. It’s 2020. It also seems impossible to write without the “assistant” wanting to interrupt you constantly and then losing connection, needing to reload the page. I stopped using it for the most part because of this and I kind of regret my premium sub. It’s just not worth the money in my opinion.
Needs more languages 3/5
By Matt GD
It needs more languages than just English languages
Not the same as the ad 1/5
In the advertisement, it shows way more efficiency, the actual thing takes forever to load and it doesn’t correct me on clear mistakes, wouldn’t recommend downloading. But hell, it is a mobile ad, what am I to expect?
The keyboard pops up covering the areas I need to see 1/5
By Stars in my eyes 2
I’d love to disable the keyboard on my iPad. It’s a nuisance.
In Regards to Full Access Request... 1/5
By The real Mr. Monopoly
Attempt #2, after noticing that my first posting of this review had mysteriously disappeared.
To be clear, I have not even used this app due to its full access request. It is a shame that this review becomes necessary to write without even giving the app itself a chance. So here goes...
I read a few reviews before downloading the app for myself just to get an idea of what the most pertinent benefits and downsides were. One of the top reviews in protest of the full access request became the most noticeable to me. I read it along with the developer response and with the latter is where the problem lies.
The developer’s response attempted to quell the complaint by stating, “Grammerly is blocked from accessing any field marked sensitive (such as passwords and credit card fields), so in fact, the keyboard cannot transmit that information to Grammerly.”
Now, allow me to quote Apple’s statement, found just under the option to grant full access, on what third party keyboards really do have access to, “These keyboards can access all of the data you type, including bank accounts and credit card numbers, street addresses, as well as other personal and sensitive information.” If you read on in this statement, you’ll also find, “... the keyboard can also collect and transmit that information to the keyboard developer’s servers.” You may then say to simply turn off full access when dealing with private information and turn it back on when you’re done, but I would respond with one final quote from Apple’s statement, “If you disable Full Access for a third party keyboard, and then re-enable it, the keyboard’s developer may be able to access, collect and transmit what was typed while the network access was disabled.”
So, in essence, it seems Grammerly not only requests access to your information under the guise of necessity, but is also willing to lie about what they have access to for the purpose of saving face.
In conclusion, I advise against the use of this app.
Needs glide/swipe typing 3/5
By K. Carroll
Grammarly on Android has swipe typing, so why isn't it in the iOS version? Grammarly is wonderful, and I would love to see more people use it. It occasionally makes mistakes, but so does MS Word. The one major feature this keyboard lacks is glide/swipe typing. I find swiping extremely more efficient, and I had to uninstall Grammarly because I can't go back to key-by-key mobile typing.
Like tf💁🏾♀️, Change It 4/5
We should be able to access our documents from our iPhone also instead of just the keyboard. Not just on a laptop or desktop. Because their are documents on Grammerly that we want to access but can’t because their is only a Grammerly keyboard.
I paid an annual membership and I can’t access 1/5
Why? Says I have to Pay for Advance features
Destroys Texts 1/5
It replaces properly spelled common words with other words. Will do this with as little as a single word entry. Removed and confirmed it was the cause of the problem.
Keyboard option not available is settings 1/5
Using iPhone 11. Installed app but no options to allow keyboard control.
Deserves 0 out of 5 stars!!! 1/5
Listen Grammarly representatives I never agreed to pay for the $59.99 in fact I said no and then deleted the app later on the day you charged me as soon as you did I disputed it then sent you a message requesting my money back and I got an email saying someone would get in touch with me but never has. give me my refund because I did not say I wanted your product.
Security breach 1/5
By Demand Pivacy Jane
This app wants access to your pictures as all information typed onto your phone. I am uncomfortable with this agreement and will not use it!
Turn Grammarly off to tag social posts 1/5
After setting 30 social media tags on a post, when Grammarly is active on mobile, adding a hashtag ”untags” all of the social media tags! It also takes the past tense word ”were” and constantly changes it to the wrong context ”we’re”
Love my GRAMMARLY!! 5/5
I have had GRAMMARLY for years already and have never had a problem! I LOVE knowing that I look intelligent when writing as opposed to the silly mistakes that may make you look Dumb!
It WOULD NOT let me log in! 1/5
By panda lover 56
I tried and tried. I had this app earlier but accidentally deleted it. I decided to get it again and it went horribly! I made a new account with the same email and a different password. It said I already had an account, I had forgotten I got this app until that moment. So, I went and clicked the sign in tab. Put in my email and new password I’d updated about 2 months ago. And guess what! It didn’t work! I tried a couple more times with the same result, I don’t know why I thought it would make a difference, it didn’t. So, I make a new password and try again! It didnt work! At this point I was losing my patience. I deleted the app and found a different writing app I can use. All I wanted was to make a short story to pass the time in quarantine. I found an app, but it wasn’t this one. If there’s anything I can do to use this app again please let me know!
Thank you for reading this if you did,
Sincerely, Nikayla V
Be careful what you download 1/5
Very easy to be charged a monthly fee without you even knowing it. Grammarly... when you say free let us choose to upgrade or not 🤬
Very laggy! 1/5
This Grammarly keyboard lags so much I cannot use it. The stock keyboard doesn’t do this. I have to go back continually and correct words that’s not complete because of it skipping letters.
By Maddison .L.
I love Grammarly do much it helps me right stuff correctly
Still need to improve for iPad 3/5
By This name can't be reached
App will crash if I type Caps Lock.
Usually I can use this to switch my keyboards.
I have been used to typing Caps Lock to switch my kayboards and using Shift to capitalize letters when on my iPad.
It’s okay if I can’t switch keyboards by tying Caps lock when using Grammarly. At least the should not crash, that’s very annoying.
very helpful but could improve 4/5
next school i will be going into 7th grade and i've been using grammarly since i was in 3rd grade. it is so helpful and i definitely recommend it!! i am currently writing a novel that i wish i could turn into a movie!! it is about 2020 and how insane it has been, grammarly has helped me so much!! Sometimes when i'm using it for school it will correct me but then my ela teacher marks it wrong, it is probably a user error but i'm not sure. that is the only thing that needs to improve in my opinion!!! i love grammarly so much and i wish i had premium.
This app requires full access by the developer, meaning anything you type is accessible including passwords, banking info, etc.
I’m not that trusting, are you?
Horrible don’t get 1/5
I purposely wrote in bad grammar, and it did not to a thing.
Too bad keyboard allows data collection 1/5
Great utility but have a privacy concern 5/5
By usa one
I just started using this on a different platform (other than iOS) and so far I am impressed.
I do have one big concern here: When enabling the grammarly keyboard, it feels very disconcerting that this app has access to credentials typed in the past as well as future and also obviously it has to send all the information captured out of the device via internet, and that could include anything typed using the keyboard.
Until Apple adds restrictions on the iOS apps to block access to identity details typed via the keyboard, I can’t give full access to Grammarly. Sorry.
Full access? 1/5
It needs full access on the keyboard to work
Advertising made it look better 2/5
By Sleep Deprived Artist
i got this app to hell me with my writing because in the ads it showed fixing wordy paragraphs which was the main reason why i wanted to get this app! so i downloaded it and made an account and whatever and went to writing and i did the review thing and it said that the only thing wrong with it was it was wordy which of course is my problem but it said it was premium which i was like what because that aspect of the app was what mostly shown in the ad and i was kinda pinged about that since there was nothing else it was helping with that autocorrect couldn’t do so i deleted it so if youre looking to get this app for that be prepared to pay money 🙄
Better but still loses connection too often 3/5
By Very Hungry Guy
It is great that the iPad app now allow for a similar experience as the desktop app, but it seems to lose the connection often and just sit there after saying "Text checking is temporarily unavailable". Since I am on a iPad Pro I guess I could just use the website, but a dedicated app that actually works would be nice. The keyboard is pretty useless.
I would like to Cancel this app please. 2/5
By Fuzzy Butts 44
I thought it was free! I can’t afford it at this time!
Thank you, Mick
By Falsely Advertised to!
I made the mistake of downloading this app. It absolutely did not do what it claims. Also, auto corrected my words into TYPOS- NON SENSE AND TYPOS!
Terrible app 1/5
Don’t download it unless you just want a super annoying autocorrect that misspells words you’re spelling correctly. It will tell you if your grammar is incorrect but won’t correct it unless you buy premium. I typed in the word, “worked,” and it kept autocorrecting it to, “workked,” which is obviously wrong. Then when I finally gave up and accepted the correction it told me it was wrong. I usually never give apps bad reviews but I hate this app. They just want your money
Not the best 3/5
Grammarly is efficient when checking language errors. However, the plagiarism check is sub-standard. It catches a minimal amount of plagiarized text. For example, in a 300 word paper, grammarly returned 6% plagiarized - from the references -while Turnitin returned 20% on the same paper. Please improve the service plagiarism checker.
FRAUD ALERT 1/5
By poppa posey
This does not work g for me at all. I just paid for one year an hour ago and decided to cancel
Everytime I put in my password ( five times ) it changed the first lower case letter to an upper case letter
It is a login password l have had to an account for five years with no problems
Now I have to take time to call Paypal and American express to have them csncel

Not Reliable 2/5
By 🥺 hï 🥺
I used to like Grammerly. But now, whenever I’m typing words like for example, “instead,” it automatically corrects to “instea.” I don’t care if this was some typing of glitch, but GET. IT. TOGETHER. I was typing an essay, and a bunch of words were wrong after I used grammerly. FIX THIS!!
I love grammarly 5/5
I love grammalry soooooo much. It is really helpful.
delete option unsecure 2/5
By mistake, I hit the delete option as I was wrapping my corrections. The app did not ask me to confirm and deleted two hours of work. How is that even possible nowadays that deletion does not require confirmation or that a deleted file cannot be recovered?
Rip off 1/5
When I tried to sign up for a free 3 day trial but needed to commit to a package that would start after the 3 day trial. To my shock the payment was processed that same day! Then to find out when loading the keyboard app the developer can have access to everything I type or have typed on my keyboard! Disgusting!
A few flaws 2/5
Grammarly isn’t always correct. In fact most of the time for me it is wrong. And also it make you pay five dollars a week. It may not sound like a lot of money but if you do pay it eventually you won’t have a lot of money. But besides it’s flaws Grammarly is sort of helpful.
By anna 🐶🐶
Amazing that is all I can say
Excellent customer service and App is very useful 5/5
The grammarly team helped me out with my refund very professionally and smoothly and they understand your circumstances as students and will make accommodations for you in terms of the service. Overall, very useful app and excellent team.
Emoji search 3/5
By Dance Daniel
Very nice && neat but i hate having to search for an emoji — why not just show it when certain words are typed just like Apples's generic keyboard
Great but have to keep an eye on it 4/5
I have dyslexia so I find it very useful for fixing the small mistakes I never learned about in school. (where to place the comma, the proper word usage). However frequently it will insist on a change that affects the entire meaning of a sentence. To be something else, or even not make sense. I would like to see the sentence in context as written as well as the proposed changes. I'm not sure given space limitations if it's possible. Perhaps highlight the mistake so it can be viewed. Then I can easily read it and see if it really needs to be fixed. And give ignore this correction this once button. I use the free version because I'm on a fixed income and I'm very grateful for that option. Even if advanced mistakes are not shown.
By DINO DE DINESOUR
I’ve used this app for 1 year it's awesomely good I'm using it right now 😂I’m 11 so this helps ALOT you won't regret it
Update took away KEY FEATURE 1/5
This update is why I don’t ever update my app’s unless I NEED TO. This most recent update took away the ability to use my caps lock button. I tried everything to get the functionality of the caps lock back. Now every time I wanna use grammarly’s spell check I need to enable that keyboard again cause I cannot live without using cap’s lock on my psychical keyboard. What a shame. I hope this is fixed soon.
My best English corrector 5/5
I am so delighted that I have this corrector for my texts in English! Super functional!
Swipe gesture 4/5
By Ashwell G
Grammarly is amazing. Please add swipe gestures or glide typing to your app.
By Editor +
Why won't Grammarly let me type what I want to type on an” I am not a robot site?!?!” It keeps wiping out my typing! So infuriating!!
Thank you for the Ipad Support! 5/5
With IOS 13, The Ipad is my main computer. Grammarly is my best friend for all the writing that I do. I no longer have to open the browser to write with the new update. Thank you Very Much!
