What Is Grammarly?

Grammarly is a spelling and grammar checker, with both free and premium versions.

What Can I Use Grammarly For?

You can download the software which runs in the background of just about anything you write (Facebook posts, WordPress blog updates etc) and tells you when you have spelled a word wrong (and gives you options for what it thinks you meant) as well as grammar mistakes and corrections.

How Do You Use Grammarly?

You can download the free version on to your laptop or phone. You will then notice it when you start to write a post, it is running in the background and highlighting the mistakes as you make them. You can upgrade to premium if you want a net that catches more mistakes.


I started with the free version and that made me realize how much I really should have been using it before!  I have since purchased the upgraded version, which includes grammar related errors and that is very good as well. It is not 100% accurate so you still do need to do a final read through but it is a core part of my writing apps.
