  • Okay I guess

    by PugQueen1

    I just got this app and I already don’t like it. I installed this app because I saw the adds quite frequently and it said the app checked how much sense the sentence made. I don’t really need any help with grammar, but I would like the function of checking sentences for the most efficient way to write sentences and get your point across. But I found out that you have to pay money for the only function that I wanted. Some people would be okay with that, but on all of the adds, they said it was completely free. I guess I don't like apps or people that lie to me. Plus, it is not like you only have to pay 2 dollars and never pay again. You have to pay around 8 dollars a month! I also don't like having to give this app full access to whatever I m writing, but this was not a huge deal, because I don't really type very important personal information but it still makes me feel uneasy. I am writing a book on my iPad with a hardware keyboard (it is in my case that I bought for the iPad). though it refuses to work with that and personally, I don't enjoy typing with little letters when I could be using a keyboard that is easier to type on. If none of this bothers you, please get the app. The grammar advice always makes sense, but I'm going to delete this app immediately.

  • It’s a NO-brainer...get it! No, as in no for me, but brainer! Ha!

    by JoshieeeeP

    I got this app because my husband has it downloaded on his laptop and I love it. I am pretty bad at grammar, so this app was a life saver. However when I downloaded it for my iPad; which I have the Keyboard laptop case thing on it, well the app pretty much didn’t like the Keyboard case. It told me to turn it off and use the keyboard that the app provides. Which is the touchscreen option and that’s completely inconvenient when you have to type a long 24 page papers. I also hate the fact that after you switch on the Grammarly keyboard, you get another thing that pops up and says, “allow full access”. By the way, I’m so glad they gave the option instead of just taking full access. But anyways, I’m against full access because when you allow them full access, you basically sign your life and rights away. They tell you that all the information you type or previously typed, like credit card info and address, will be collected and stored in their personal database. And that’s not all, but I rather not sit here and spell it out for you (ba-da-ting). Not-happenin-over-here-captain. So I installed it and 5 minutes later deleted. You can try it for longer if you want, but do it at your own risk! I’m telling my husband on you Grammarly.

  • by Medusas Mermaid

    I downloaded this app thinking it would correct punctuation and grammar. but it's nothing more than a spell check and often gets word tense wrong. it'll tell me to make something past tense that shouldn't be. It isn't any better than the spell check and dictionary that comes stock on my phone. it's basically wasting space. I'm using it now and it's not even xapitalizing the first words of my sentences. & it's not correcting spelling now, in this very review. doesn't do what the commercial claims

  • by Ron Swarthout

    it's fine, does the job well unless you're offline. then, you get weird spelling corrections. also, it has a tendancy to finish words for you while you're typing, making new words like "minuminutetes." edit: I've been prompted to review the app while typing at least five times with no way to dismiss it. this is really annoying.

  • This app got me an 80 on a paragraph presentation...

    by A living breathing trashcan

    I’m what you might call an A student in 7th grade. English is a bit if-y from time to time but pretty consistent with an A-/B+ on most reports. I downloaded the app for the first time a few weeks ago and decided to try it out on an history paper and got the standard A. I then tried it out a few weeks later on my most recent English assignment and everything was good except the grammar which got me an 80. Grammar is meant to be exactly what you fix. Your standard autocorrect keyboard doesn’t go below the level of the 4th grade. Your “world class linguists” must still be sucking on pacifiers at this point. It couldn’t even get the capitalization right! It in fact messed it up. Your Tv ads show college level students getting an A on papers when using grammarly, when in actuality unless they’re willing to pay for premium they should’ve considered dropping out of middle school because they will be bombing every college english course in existence. Whoever designed the marketing for this app is a first class idiot. It’s not clever to charge for something that actually works. People like me will just uninstall.

  • by Clifton Smith

    It's just too slow. I have been using this on my phone, tablet and PC and paid for a year subscription in advance. I have tried to get to used to it but it's too slow. Especially on the PC. It literally takes about 2 minutes to spell and grammar check an email and the program just slows my PC down. On the phone it's not as slow but its is still just too slow. Very frustrating to use. It does spot error well but costs you time.

  • by sarah canton

    I don't know what they did in their last update, but if you feel like having to retype the same sentence 8 times in a row, this is the perfect keyboard for you. If you type more than 2-3 paragraphs, it starts randomly throwing you back into other sentences and refusing to move from that spot. Your sentences will end up looking like this: I haven't been this disappointedeyboard in an add-on k in a really long time.

  • I’d give it a six out of five if it weren’t for these problems

    by Amethystshouldbeimpressed

    Hi! I just love your Desktop application, it is so useful and it works pretty well, except for the fact I can't make it work on Google. However, your app for mobile is very disappointing. It doesn't let me automatically look things up, the little green button on the corner of my screen only checks my spelling errors, which I don't make many of those anyway, and it doesn't check any of my grammatical errors. I made some very obvious ones to test it out but it didn't do a thing, and grammar is my biggest problem and the reason I downloaded it. I might have just used autocorrect with a normal keyboard. Also, I thought this would be a tiny feature I could put on my customized keyboard, but instead it gives me a whole new keyboard. This honestly is not a big deal, but there is a feature most third-party keyboards have called ”swipe input” that I highly recommend. All in all, make it more like the desktop application but include the swipe input. Sincerely, Unsatisfied P.S. Wrote this with your keyboard ^~^

  • by Madeleine C

    Grammarly on the computer is definitely much better than this keyboard. Grammarly Keyboard tries to correct words with parts of words in them, messing them up even more than they originally were. I tried to write "document", and it tried to correct it to " docuMEANT". I highly suggest that this should be fixed.

  • by Christi -Jan Hendriks

    This stupid keyboard has the worst predictive text and auto correct I have ever used. it can't even save my bloody name, I'm Christi-Jan not @$#%& Christian. stop changing it dammit. just to add to it, all the other keyboards I have used know to start a damn sentence with a capital letter and also knows that when someone types "i" they mean I. fix it!!!!!! (notice i didn't correct anything here I decided to let Grammarly just do it's thing.)

  • by Lee Yoh

    From smart app to dumb app. They completely ruined it with the update. it will no longer correct your grammar. seems the app losing ability to check grammar, so there is no point of the name "grammarly", as there is no grammar check and correction. it can only fix typo, just like other keyboard, so why bother installing?

  • by K . D

    keyboard is not working. It was in the beginning. But now its not predecting text nor correcting. My settings are fine. dissapointed. Edit: Ok , out of no where it is working sometimes. But it's not working as i am typing this now. Why is it reluctant to predict at some places ?

  • The worst thing that happened to me!!!

    by powdu

    I love this app, It’s so awesome. It doesn’t make you frustrated when writing the wrong words, but fixes it for you. But, sometimes it’s wrong about the words you are trying to say. I get “there” and “their” confused sometimes, which is all the times and it always corrects for me all the time in the right way. But, then one day, when I did it the whole “there” and “their” thing again. That time I really tried my best to not make that mistake, cause it was a really important day for me. I was getting hired for a job I’ve working and wanting my whole life. When I was writing I didn’t bother to look back at my writing because I’ve been using grammarly for about a year, so I didn’t, but guess I really thought wrong because everybody always tells me to check over my work before sending it. I got a letter that said that I wasn’t qualified to write and I was so sad and mad at grammarly!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Grammarly App not compatible with voiceover

    by AnnieInAcworth

    I am a blind user of Grammarly and when using it on a computer I get to enjoy all its benefits. But on the iPhone, it will not work for me. I reported this to Grammarly ages ago and they gave me the runaround. Today I tried it again with a new release. It is still useless to me. When I reported it they suggested I uninstall/reinstall the app. I went through that exercise only to learn tech support was wasting my time. When I complained more loudly, I was told making Grammarly accessible is difficult and they don't know when they can do it. Really??? This company brags about using sophisticated AI to analyze sentences, yet they can't get their app to do what tens of thousands of other applications already have figured out? Voiceover is built into every iPhone for a reason. It provides Blind people equal access, but only if companies care enough to build their applications with us in mind.

  • Pretty mediocre

    by Lowyna

    This app is great but there are a few major issues: •the whole overview editing -when I use it many times I’ll get a whole bunch of things but when I click it it immediately closes all the other issues and only shows the one you clicked that hasn’t been changed. -a couple of times it hasn't even fixed the problem or it just adds the corrected word without getting rid of the original one -sometimes it won't catch phrases to add commas around. -it will try to attach two words together just because they can be a compound word when they aren't supposed to. •the keyboard itself -the main, and frankly only, the problem is the quotation marks. When it you try to use the punctuation it is programmed on the end quotation. So now my quotes look like [”•”] instead of [“•”] and while it doesn't show much difference here other sites with different fonts it's much clearer. •the App -kinda useless. All it does is show you how to get the keyboard I, personally, would like an option to alter the keyboard or customize it. Just a suggestion •overall -It's good in small doses -there are glitches -problems with catching fairly simple punctation issued. -quotation marks are an issue!!!!! -Vamp up the app itself please!

  • Incredibly distracting when composing a message

    by gabzbsn

    It's very distracting trying to compose a message with all the flashing of the three boxes below as they produce the words the program thinks are trying to be spelled as well as the large G that opens and closes while typing. Extremely distracting to the point where id rather not use the App. Please address this as everyone I spoke to that has used this App says the same thing. Love the concept of this App and it could prove to be amazing! Is there a way to turn off the three boxes below and just have the functionality of the app highlight the words where it could recommend a different spelling or grammar allowing me to choose to correct them or not? I'm so close to deleting this App it's so annoying trying to type with all the flashing and opening and closing of boxes while I type going on below.

  • Could Be WAY Better

    by Catherinejones

    Using the keyboard as I'm typing this review, and there is major lag. First impression: I used the keyboard to review some business emails, and it did not catch some easy typos. Once I've clicked the refresh-like button, I am not directed to the beginning of my email’s corrections, I'm led to the very end of recommended revisions. Recommendations: * A user should be able to select a section that they want to be proofread only. Otherwise, a user could be required to go through corrections of the entire email thread. * Offer the same type of app that we use online through a typical laptop or desktop. Offer a keyboard assistant as well as the ’normal’ Grammarly assistant where you can copy and paste into it. *(I’m an iPhone user) Build your IOS keyboard assistant to be the same size as the Iphone keyboard. I've noticed that I am constantly correcting my spelling as I use the keyboard because of the minor differences with Grammarly's versus the Iphone’s actual keyboards. An iPhone user is comfortable with the keyboard that they use on a daily basis, and the slightest difference in keyboard size can really screw things up. It has made it difficult to type and is the main reason why I will be deleting the app.

  • GRAMMARLY STEALING MY PERSONAL INFO???

    by mudpie12345678

    I got this app because a friend recently recommended it to me and thought I should try it out. However, after I sign up it makes me turn on the Grammarly Keyboard. ( I do not like adding keyboards because every time you go to type an emoji, the keyboard switches. ) But I enabled the keyboard anyway. Then it asks me to Allow Full Access. An icon pops up saying “Full access allows the developer of this keyboard to transmit anything you type, including things you have previously typed with this keyboard. This could include sensitive information such as your credit card number or street address.” I was not comfortable with this. STEALING MY INFO??? Due to this issue, a result in deleting this app has occurred. Even though this is a great tool, it is not worth exposing your personal info. I definitely WOULD NOT recommend this app to ANYONE. Save yourself and don’t download this app. PLEASE.

  • Clunky, slow autocorrects, and subpar predictive text

    by neal21

    I really like other Grammarly products and wanted to like this keyboard. However, the keyboard suggestions and corrections are MUCH slower than the normal Apple keyboard. Autocorrects that are close enough that I know the Apple keyboard would have changed them in time before shooting off a quick text do not get changed in time so I’m sending nonsense. Predictive text is nearly useless and doesn’t seem to be learning like Apple’s does. If you’re used to sending quick texts this WILL slow you down. I’ve found I’ve made more mistakes while texting since trying this keyboard. It’s likely most useful if you do a lot of emailing or other longer-form writing on your device. For my typical uses, I found it clunky enough that I deleted it off my phone.

  • most features dont even work (using iPad Pro 2018)

    by Yara!!! 1290

    I was using the app and when using it iv noticed that most of the features don’t even work when like when using Google docks or etc.. auto capitalization and when it scans for mistakes it shows them to me, then I click on it so it can correct it but it just disappears and also when it shows the grammar mistakes it shoes the same mistake literally 20 times in a row and doesn’t even correct it. There is no support for physical keyboards which I don't get because the iPad Pro line had non-Bluetooth physical keyboard support for over 3 years. I mean Grammarly need to catch up, it is falling way behind. (While writing this review it was working well for the most part but when using it in a word processor it is terrible) IM JUST ASKING SUPPORT FOR THE 2018 IPAD PRO!!!! Plz

  • Shady developer, spyware company

    by LarryMcdonald

    A previous person listed there subject field as difficult to rate. They didn’t like how Grammarly record EVERYTHING Grammarly replies 9 months later and says we do not record your credit card info, passwords, urls, etc... So, I downloaded it. Before I could use it, I had to select Grammarly keyboard. Ok, no problem. Then I had to select “full access” and it says we can see sensitive things you type and HAVE typed previously, things like CREDIT CARD information, home address, etc... Some people already worry that the Government or phone companies already track everything they do online and can see what they say to others. I do not over think that part. However, I will not ever believe this company can not see my credit card information after what it says to have to give full access. Also, to be able to see previous things I have typed, I’ll pass! I do not need an app that is actually malware/spyware on my phone and will be taken off my computer now. I do not need any “app” recording my key strokes and able to read what I type and save it. It should be correct what you type, and when you hit enter to send the text or email that there is no recorded information kept from what I typed!!

  • I was obsessed with this app. Not it is unusable.

    by LynK8258

    Used this app for months in my college English course. It was helpful when finding errors after I had been staring at a paper for 2 solid days. Up until today, I have used this app with no problem, now it is unusable. I reinstalled that app and shut down a restarted my brand new iPad multiple times. When I select my first or second error that I would like to correct, all of a sudden, the errors start swiping a way a rapid speed like it is possessed. I can’t make it stop, I can’t do anything and then it says there aren’t any errors. I did this 15 times, over and over again trying to see if it would work. Now I am freaking out because my final paper is do soon and this app isn’t working anymore. It is hard to proof your own paper and I have nobody else who can do it. Very upset right now.

  • Brutal getting used to.

    by Donato34

    Let's try this. I'm going to type kit this review to show uoj just how difficult it is to use this product. I've been using this keyboard for about a month. It's been frustrating to use, and I had hoped it would learn and improve. Unfortunately, I've been left with the conclusion that this makes typing on an iPhone more difficult than the default iPhone keyboard. That should say a lot. The most straightforward corrections such as uoj > you should not be something I have to manually correct. Even when j do manually correct a name or place, the keyboard doesn't seem to understand that I've edited that word 50 times to make it spelled that particular way. I know that this type of product is severe, but at this time I can't a say that this product helps in any way shape or form.

  • PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCESS - REALLY⁉️

    by A&Bo

    I believe with today’s technology, until someone can come up with, and I’m sure that someday in the very near future there will be, that this App is NOT really worth risking to anyone who has any concerns of allowing access of their iPhone personal information. I don’t care what anyone says, none of us do NOT have any kind of verification or guarantee that our personal information is going elsewhere!!! Until this App says that it has been rectified and it no longer has to be utilized to gain access of your personal information with the help of today’s updated technology, then I say this APP would be great. In my opinion now, there are too many privacy concerns and a risk to take at this time. Nothing is impossible to be resolved somehow!

  • Amazing on an actual computer, not so great on an iPad Pro 12.9 3rd Gen

    by macko121

    I love Grammarly, it has become an indispensable tool for my work. That said, when I decided to switch to only working on the latest gen iPAD Pro, i have to say the experience is a little lack lustre. I’ve downloaded the app, and as I go about my writing i fail to see the grammarly screen where all the recommendations and insights are being displayed, nothing I do is making this glitch go away. I see a glimpse of where it is supposed to be, but unfortunately it does not present itself, i cannot perform any corrections and don’t know what the errors are. I hope that work is being done to rectify this as it is really a great tool. It’s just not there yet on my current setup.

  • Adequate at most(CELL) great (LAPTOPS)

    by KBlondie8

    Love the app on the computer for essays and only places it on my phone for emails. However, it regularly switches between keyboards when I don’t want it to in favor of Grammarly. Also in text form, Grammarly messes up a plethora of word choice and syntax often making sentences confusing or the opposite of what I want to say. While I have been able to turn the app off and denied it full access, I have also found it difficult to determine how to delete the app from my phone all together for peace of mind and more storage. Again. It is perfect and would recommended the full version FOR A LAPTOP, but is woefully inadequate for the regular social vocabulary of common text message over a cellular device.

  • BEWARE. MAJOR PRIVACY INVASION!

    by Barry10or2

    I downloaded this thinking it was a good tool. It came up as an advert in a game I was using. Once I’d downloaded it, a user agreement came up. As I’d never seen one of these for an app I was using, I read it. By agreeing to use the app, you agree to the developers having total access to any program that you use it in, including your entire email, notes, and messages files. Basically EVERYTHING! DO NOT download this app if you want to keep your personal files personal. Also, I’ve tried to purge this from all my machines, but once you have downloaded an app, you can never get rid of it from your purchase history. It stays in your iCloud, and I now get the ad, as before, but it now asks me to open the app. VERY annoying! I truly wish I’d never downloaded this!

  • Sluggish and Slow to Learn, Poor Autocorrect

    by Tuffsubject

    I’ve tried it for about a week, just now removed it. Sluggish I assume due to the latency of traversing the network with keyboard activity and awaiting responses. Built-in keyboard is much more responsive as it does the autocorrect logic locally I guess. Very poor with autocorrect, I was hoping it would assess context more accurately. A few instances of correcting grammar but mostly the suggestions were irrelevant to what I was typing. Even the touching of keys or word suggestions seemed sluggish. The look of the keyboard differed from the built-in one, I seemed to make a lot more typos (not sure if is the physical keyboard layout or the lack of autocorrect compared to the built-in keyboard). Great idea, but not the magic bullet that I expected.

  • Not good for many people

    by Jordang_geiger

    Now, every day more and more people are using tablets instead of standard computers. The one feature that is missing from a tablet is a keyboard, so most buy a keyboard instead on the on screen one. Since the Grammarly keyboard only works on the digital keyboard,it won’t work if you will buy a real keyboard. Because of this, this review is probably full of Grammar mistakes witch could have been avoided if in this app, the had the desktop version. If they don’t do this, users have to go to grammarly, sign in, request desktop site and continue to use the non-optimized for Mobile websites. This could all be avoided if they restructure this app. This would be extremely helpful for many people.

  • Can't even tell when to turn your into you’re.

    by ElisabettaAngelos

    For an app based on grammar, it's pretty sad when you try to test it out and the first thing you notice is that it doesn't input the correct usage of you’re vs your. Even as I type this it's trying to tell me to change ”your” into ”yours”. I'd also expect it to change U into You and Ur into the correct form of your/you’re, but it doesn't. This is NOT a grammar app. A spelling and punctuation app, maybe. But I also tried typing some very long run on sentences and it never suggested any form of punctuation, so even in that category it fails. It's a good idea, but ultimately it's going to give people a false sense of confidence and teach them the wrong thing. I will be deleting the app, it's virtually useless to me.

  • Does it really help with grammar?

    by CoolAwesome101Girl

    I am beyond annoying with this app. The only reason I downloaded this app was for good measure. I’ve only used it for a day and it’s annoying me like crazy. First of all, it would try and correct me on things that didn’t need to be corrected. Second of all, I would make a grammar mistake and it wouldn’t correct me, I’d have to correct myself. Third of all, every time I would try to type something, it would delete spaces. It did that over and over again. I got so frustrated that I didn’t even want to give it another chance. I really don’t want to waste another second using this app. I might have used it wrong, but i don’t understand what I could have done to make it work.

  • Lots of room for improvement

    by Jonnysalder

    The problem I have with this app version of grammarly is that the main feature doesn’t even work. It’s like a beta version that was released too early. When you click on the green grammarly arrow, a new menu pops up with possible suggestions. I edit documents on my iPad that are 1-3 thousand words. The grammarly keyboard presents a list of suggested edits. When I click on one, the editor locks up. All the suggestions disappear. I don’t mean to be rude, but I’m paying 30 bucks a month for a premiums service that doesn’t even work. You claim to be an app for writers, but you have no convenient tools outside of google chrome.

  • Needs full access

    by jj101022

    While I’m a family proficient writer, I often make dumb typos while rushing though projects. I love how Grammarly catches those obvious mistakes. However, I don’t like the fact that they force you to agree to allow full access (giving them the right to collect ANY information you type, as well as retain the information). Obviously, I don’t like the idea of some company having access to my bank accounts, debit/credit card, and other personal information I type. Additionally, I use my phone for work, so I’m unable to allow that kind of access because it would be a HIPPA violation. I’ve disappointed because it’s a great product, but not at all safe or secure the way it’s currently set up.

  • ⚠️HORRID (PLEASE READ)⚠️

    by Eggs are cool

    I got the app and everything readied to use. I turn the keyboard on, I wanted to check my writing so I clicked the 'G' and it just said Checking. I waited and waited and nothing happened. So I got out of the keyboard and opened it back up, then it says there was like 15 grammar mistakes. So it checked it again, this time it worked. But, it showed a mistake, and I wanted to keep it for something so I hit 'dismiss' It didn't do anything. I clicked it again..still nothing. So I got out of the key board and opened it AGAIN. My mistakes popped up again and I came to one I wanted to change. buut NOO. It wouldn't change and it just disappeared (the keyboard) I had to find the mistake and change it myself, but I wasn't going to find 15 mistakes and change it myself. So I Tried AGAAIN. OF COURSE THE THING WOULNT WORK!! It never showed my mistakes and and just kept loading and loading. BUT WAIT THERES MORE it turned my whole darn IPAD FRENCH. So I turned grammarly off and everything was fine. So I tried to use it again but it turned everything french again! JUST SAYIN IT DOESNT WORK

  • Completely Copied from Gboard

    by Joseph T. Briscod

    This app is so bad because the whole keyboard is copied from the app made by Google called Gboard. If you go look at the emoji icon for Gboard and then go look at the emoji button icon for Grammarly its the exact same icon. And then if you see the shape of the Gboard keys and then go to the Grammarly keys they are the exact same shape. Then if you see the google icon on the top left corner and then you see where the grammarly icon is on the keyboard you will realize that the grammar icon on the keyboard is at the same position as the Gboard icon. Plus Grammarly has the same design for the word suggestions at the top of the keyboard as Gboard. I highly suggest not using the grammarly keyboard because it is completely copied off of Gboard!

  • I got this to ”write with confidence” not get made fun of fun of.

    by Joe mobolo ko fo lo ho krinko finkoe the 3rd

    I tried this for three months and the success of it is; limited I'm typing this with Grammarly and to say the least, it's not working. It knows commas capitalization and; has no Idea how to use periods not much else Run on sentences it's Fine with I don't Technically have to put a period if I don't want too and can; place a semicolon Anywhere I want so don't bother getting this it's no: better than the Default auto-correct see how many mistakes You can find post-Grammarly in this Review. I left out the grammar that I do know just to prove a point. If you have any ideas as to how else I could try and mess up grammar as a test let me know if you can.

  • I wanted this to be a great app. It failed miserably.

    by JGammack

    Simply horrible performance in the accuracy and functionality of this app; it’s just awful. The word selection/suggestion lags and doesn’t align with your writing - it stops with your first “error” and doesn’t advance unless you address it. I also found the keyboard to very (!) frequently select the wrong key - “n” for the space bar is common. This provides a huge challenge as your words will run together and the autocorrect is still three sentences behind your typing of the erred mega-word (due to the poorly responsive keyboard). I’ve deleted this app from my phone.

  • Woah!!!!

    by Stonervibe1

    Ok .... never wrote a review honestly for any app that I use because I’m pretty careful with what I download, but this was suggested to me by a friend so I said “hey why not “! IMMEDIATELY AFTER SIGNING UP THERE WAS AN INSTANT RED FLAG!!!!!!!! In order to use the app you have to allow full access, meaning YOU CAN TRACK WHAT I WRITE MY CREDIT CARD INFO ADDRESSES NAMES DATES AND HEY IF YOU DONT GIVE ACCESS YOU CANT USE IT OHHHH GOSH!!! Oh no no no immediately had to delete this app after (for safety reasons) but hmm here’s a suggestion maybe try giving use customers who you basically profit off of , a CHOICE!!!!! Give us a choice to allow/or not to allow you guys to have access to sensitive information like that , I believe you will get a better rating and more customers .

  • Wow, Horrible App!

    by pythonmma

    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!

  • Not always correct

    by Mickey Mouse Club 2004

    I use grammarly whenever I text someone or anything along the lines of typing on my iPhone. It works sometimes, but tends to make a lot of mistakes. For example, I was texting my mom, “Where are (sisters name) and I going after dad goes to work?” It wanted to change “are” to “is”, which is the wrong verb since there are two subjects. I also accidentally wrote “there” instead of “there” and it didn’t change the sentence, even though the there I used didn’t make grammatical sense. I don’t recommend it as much as I could because of the bad experiences I have had so far.

  • Just an auto correct app

    by 12Nate34

    I got this app because my grammar could use some work but this app doesn't help the way I thought it was going to. It just auto corrects words that you've misspelled and doesn't fix my sentences like it leads you to believe. it's a good app but iOS devices come with a default auto correct already and that one works faster and a little better all round so there wouldn't be a reason to get this. I guess theres desktop version that does the things that this app advertises to be. So don't blow off the whole company. They do seem to be trying to do something great

  • Worried.

    by m.sweetwyne

    I downloaded and started to use this app. But then I read this."If you enable Full Access, developers are permitted to access, collect and transmit the data you type. In addition, if the third party application containing the keyboard has your permission to access location, photos, or other personal data, the keyboard can also collect and transmit that information to the keyboard developer’s servers. 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."That got me worried so I decided not to use the app.

  • It’s not all that

    by Khan Hannan

    Good looking keyboard - no doubt. But looks go only so far if there are no functionality to support it well. So, the keyboard doesn’t allow for me to have access to mic so I can talk to write something, anything. Secondly, as I type words, it doesn’t show me little emojis that regular keyboard does and I’m NOT talking about selecting the world icon and then going to Emoji section. Thirdly, it changes words that are correct in my mind but not in its “mind”. So, I have to always either keep adding dictionary words myself or become really annoyed. So, I chose to get rid of this keyboard 5 mins after I installed it.

    They need to update it so that you can swipe as you type instead of punching every single thing out, which is time consuming.

  • by NS04

    it's not as good as it seems. do whatever you want to do, in the end you will uninstall it

  • Horrible, Just Horrible

    by Lupita19

    Grammarly is complete trash and annoying. Every once and a while on almost every app I use I get an ad for this and it annoys me so much. Also, when I got Grammarly and used it on my touch screen keyboard, I couldn’t type as fast, I typed about 5x slower than I usually type. Back to the ads, they’re bad, just bad. Every time I get a Grammarly ad, I just get off the app I’m on and then go back in. I can’t stand your ads, they are so annoying, and just useless. Why make your ads pop up every few minutes, give space for some other ads from other apps. I barely even used Grammarly when I got it. I didn’t even use it for a whole day, that’s how bad this is. As I said before, Grammarly is absolute trash and annoying. It’s like it’s begging me to download it again, which I’ll never do. Goodbye trash app.

  • Giant security breach waiting to happen.

    by Sly-1028

    You don't need absolutely full access to check spelling and grammar. its absurd risk and just a giant security breach waiting to happen.

  • Can’t use on my IPad Pro. Conflicts with Physical Keyboard.

    by cberg777

    I am thinking of switching to another grammar check software subscription because of Grammerly’s terrible integration with the iPad Pro. The software conflicts with Apple’s physical keyboard. And you also can’t use the online Grammerly editor in a web browser on the iPad because it wants you to install the keyboard extension. Lose - Lose. Geez.

  • Missed the obvious

    by Mandy1102

    FAIL Grammarly. You are a glorified auto correct. You missed an obvious misuse of your (should have been you’re). I tried to set up grammarly to catch the same mistake in another text. It did not. In my opinion, it's no more effective than using a standard spell check feature. Who uses commas these days anyway? Fix yo SH*T.

  • The Grammarly keyboard phone app (iOS) does NOT check grammar.

    by Dnev1551

    I entered a sentence: ”After that, John said he tried to get away by drove further ahead.” It did NOT suggest a change to ”driving.” It should have also changed ’further’ to ’farther’ because farther refers to a physical distance whereas further relates to a metaphorical or symbolic distance. The iOS Grammarly keyboard app most certainly does NOT check grammar and needs to be fixed! However, the computer (Mac OS) application and using Grammarly online is AMAZING! It would have caught that error in a second!!!! They must fix the iOS app. Many people use their phones to type professional email responses.

  • Requires permissions I’m not going to give.

    by P|$$3|) 0££

    I use grammarly on both Windows 10 and Ubuntu and love it; but on iOS it requires full 24/7 access. I’m not going to entrust my personal information such as passwords and credit card information to a company who’s servers could be hacked. I barely trust Apple. Fix this and I’ll love it. You do NOT need a 24/7 connection, don’t give me that BS. Recode it to work offline. It’s not that hard.

  • Problem

    by lisade kaide

    I got the app so I could work on my book on my phone but I can't get my document.

  • The worst thing that happened to me!!!

    by powdu

    I love this app, It’s so awesome. It doesn’t make you frustrated when writing the wrong words, but fixes it for you. But, sometimes it’s wrong about the words you are trying to say. I get “there” and “their” confused sometimes, which is all the times and it always corrects for me all the time in the right way. But, then one day, when I did it the whole “there” and “their” thing again. That time I really tried my best to not make that mistake, cause it was a really important day for me. I was getting hired for a job I’ve working and wanting my whole life. When I was writing I didn’t bother to look back at my writing because I’ve been using grammarly for about a year, so I didn’t, but guess I really thought wrong because everybody always tells me to check over my work before sending it. I got a letter that said that I wasn’t qualified to write and I was so sad and mad at grammarly!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Absolutely insane privacy permissions

    by shanchambers

    This keyboard requires access to everything you type and everything YOU HAVE EVER typed. Crazy.

  • Just leave it online

    by texhess1

    Please, just leave access to iOS online. I know this is a total first world problem, but I don’t want to download another app, grammarly functions best online.

  • Delete

    Some how I got this on my keyboard list and don’t know how to delete since there’s no I con I don’t want it

  • Grammarly

    by man with a soul

    Grammarly is a good app I deleted it because I couldn’t have the Speaker and I am younger than 18 so it might not use the words I want to say because I don’t like this I rate it a 1

  • App doesn't work without ‘Full Access’ granted.

    by this is a nickname under 30

    Hmmm can't workout why this app needs full access to work. Some access to the internet is all that should be required. I’m sure this will be fixed soon, I’ll re-install the app then. I love the desktop and browser versions. But my data is worth more than my need to correct grammar and spelling.

  • Why you need Full access

    by My Gujarat

    I would have gave 4 star if this information was on before downloading this app so no thanks

  • Privacy issues.

    by Brett-32

    Utilizing this app. Will give unadulterated access to developers to all of your personal information as well as possible banking information. There is no for anyone to have that type of information!

  • Not working 😡

  • Not a proficient tool

    by Lincoln Mitchell

    One of the worst pieces of advise I received all year from a teacher was to put my essays into grammarly before turning them in. This was a horrible idea as the ai algorithm they use to catch mistakes caught maybe one or two mistakes while creating tons of grammar mistakes in my paper. This tool should not be used by anyone looking for more advanced mark ups than a synonym or spelling change. This tool can not be used as when applying to any piece of writing it doesn’t catch basic mistakes and causes errors in your work.

  • Do not recommend at all

    by Sidrel

    So if understand, I’m obligated to share my data, my number of credit cards and all my passwords etc.? Wait whaaaaat !?!? Even if you tell me you will not do that, I’ll be sorry for being able to believe you.

  • PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCESS - REALLY⁉️

    by A&Bo

    I believe with today’s technology, until someone can come up with, and I’m sure that someday in the very near future there will be, that this App is NOT really worth risking to anyone who has any concerns of allowing access of their iPhone personal information. I don’t care what anyone says, none of us do NOT have any kind of verification or guarantee that our personal information is going elsewhere!!! Until this App says that it has been rectified and it no longer has to be utilized to gain access of your personal information with the help of today’s updated technology, then I say this APP would be great. In my opinion now, there are too many privacy concerns and a risk to take at this time. Nothing is impossible to be resolved somehow!

  • Very disappointed

    I asked someone to proofread my email after using this app. The mention that my punctuations were in the wrong places. Having refund issues don’t recommend the app

  • Worse than autocorrect

    by Photo biz owner

    I hate that autocorrect will change your words to something that makes no sense. Unless I triple check what I’ve written, the phone keyboard makes me sounds like an idiot, even when I have no problems with grammar or sentence construction. I just tried this app and it was just as bad, which basically makes it useless. I’m also creeped out by the permissions required. It’s already been deleted.

  • I must wonder...

    by AaahsLiving

    When your reviewer’s comments are filled with so many grammar mistakes I must wonder about the quality of this app!

  • Security/Privacy Concerns

    by SsnowSnake

    One of the first things that came up when I opened this app was a request for me to install their keyboard on my iPad. This will give the developer complete access to everything I write, perhaps more. No explanation as to why. No option to skip this. As I refuse to give that kind of access to anyone other than myself, I never got to see how the app works or how it could help my writing. Deleting it as soon as I finish this. I’ll keep looking for another app to write with. If you value privacy and security, look elsewhere.

  • After Sign-up on computer the app is impossible to use.

    by ThisGuyThatEats

    Got Grammarly on my computer and decided to get the app as well. Unfortunately I can’t use the app because I can’t get logged in. I used the Facebook option to create my account on the computer so I don’t have a password but the app keeps asking for a password. Tried my fb password and it didn’t work... tried to redo stuff on my computer and it said I don’t have a password because I opted for Facebook login??? I tried reset password but it doesn’t send anything to any of my emails. So broken.

  • I can't stand this keyboard!

    by Leyona Solo

    The app on desktop works really well and helps me a lot. I was hoping that when I got this keyboard it would be the same. It constantly glitches out and will think words that are spelt right are wrong and then when I have it fix it it will add another first letter. So if I write ”you” and the keyboard thinks it's spelt wrong and it tells me and I click it, it will change it so it says. ”yyou”

  • Pricing unclear

    by Clarity, please

    It’s super unclear if downloading the editor results in monthly charges. I downloaded thinking “what a cool idea!” not noticing anything about charges and am now trying to figure out if I’m going to get charged, or if that’s a separate sign up process. I’m currently trying to undo this just in case, but the steps are not intuitive at all.

  • Okay I guess

    by PugQueen1

    I just got this app and I already don’t like it. I installed this app because I saw the adds quite frequently and it said the app checked how much sense the sentence made. I don’t really need any help with grammar, but I would like the function of checking sentences for the most efficient way to write sentences and get your point across. But I found out that you have to pay money for the only function that I wanted. Some people would be okay with that, but on all of the adds, they said it was completely free. I guess I don't like apps or people that lie to me. Plus, it is not like you only have to pay 2 dollars and never pay again. You have to pay around 8 dollars a month! I also don't like having to give this app full access to whatever I m writing, but this was not a huge deal, because I don't really type very important personal information but it still makes me feel uneasy. I am writing a book on my iPad with a hardware keyboard (it is in my case that I bought for the iPad). though it refuses to work with that and personally, I don't enjoy typing with little letters when I could be using a keyboard that is easier to type on. If none of this bothers you, please get the app. The grammar advice always makes sense, but I'm going to delete this app immediately.

  • So stupid

    by vdorbandt

    I paid for it the free trial and and it was supposed to fix your grammar and spelling and punctuation mistakes but all it did was take my money and fix your spelling and pluuuusss it didn’t even correct my spelling most of the time. So don’t get the free trial or even this app

  • Very expensive monthly fee

    by SHEAFMom

    It is just another spell checker, unless you pay their monthly fee. The “discounted” annual fee is $140. I don’t do reoccurring fees. I would be happy to spend a one time purchase fee of $50 on an app that helped me correct grammar, but not monthly forever.

  • Pay and Security

    by Drstilly

    You have to pay for premium if you want more than spellcheck. Your phone already does that and the word suggestions and spell check are worse than what iPhone already has. You also have to agree to some startling terms and conditions giving EVERYTHING you type to their servers and apple. If you sincerely need the features promised in this app either pay for the subscription or don’t even bother with it. The security risk isn’t worth the reward either way. Bad grammar never got hacked.

  • Are you kidding me?

    by Tftfrffyyug

    Grammarly does not work! It works amazingly on computers but on an iPhone wow! Does not work at all. It starts off with all the possible corrections, but then they start disappearing before you can correct them! It's very strange. I will continue using it on a computer but I'm not gonna use it on my iPhone.
