Please Keep This In Mind!!
These keyboards can access all of the data you type, including bank account and credit card numbers, street addresses, as well as other personal and sensitive information. These keyboards may also access nearby text or data, which is useful for improving autocorrect functionality.
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.
If you do not enable Full Access, developers are not permitted to collect and transmit the data you type. Any unauthorized collection or transmission of this data without your permission would be a violation of their developer agreement. Furthermore, there are also technical limitations in effect to prevent unauthorized access. Any attempt to defeat these limitations would also be a violation of their developer agreement.
It’s a NO-brainer...get it! No, as in no for me, but brainer! Ha!
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.
Grammarly is great but please make some developments •PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING•
I'm my experience with Grammarly, I have been using it to type messages and sometimes when I type names, it changes it to a different one. My friends would get confused so I just wouldn't use Grammarly for texting. Another thing I have issues with in Grammarly is that it tries to put my separate words into ones together. I was typing my review and it put the words ”with and in” together. When I put commas in between my sentences sometimes it says I'm wrong and I'm not. It is not like my reading class which actually gives way more information than Grammarly. I'm sorry if you feel offended but I just think you need to make some improvements. Otherwise, of my issues, I give this app/keyboard a 👍🏽. It is a great app and I hope you make some developments to help me with my problems. I don't want you to get mad so please don't. I'm just telling you what you can make improvements on so you can make your app better. Please respond to this and thank you for making this great app.
I’d give it a six out of five if it weren’t for these problems
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.
P.S. Wrote this with your keyboard ^~^
Decent grammar correction, but sometimes inconvenient
As someone who judges people for poor grammar, I judge myself even harder when I make stupid grammar mistakes. Grammarly keyboard goes a long way to preventing those so that my self-righteousness remains intact. For this, if rate the app 4-4.5 stars.
However, there are some features missing that make using the keyboard inconvenient compared to iOS’s default keyboard.
For example, I would like to set the default quote and apostrophe characters to be those found on a normal computer keyboard (" and '), rather than the stylized/slanted characters that you would use when writing something by hand (“, ”, ‘, and ’).
Another missing feature is the prevent-autocorrect-from-occuring checkmark button in the predictive text buttons that iOS’s keyboard has. This requires you to press spacebar, allow the autocorrect to occur, and press backspace to undo it before going on. If you want to change the word rather than undoing the autocorrect, pressing backspace does not remove the space when the autocorrect is undone, so the cursor is not where you would expect it to be.
The missing features’ added inconvenience isn't enough (yet) to dissuade me from using it, but it is frustrating, so I'm rating the app 3 stars. I've added both of the approve issues as feature requests, so it is possible (or likely) these inconveniences will disappear shortly.
Good for some, not for others
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.
Not Even Close. Pass.
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.
By shame shMe shame jahdhdhgrudh
I’m so disappointed pointed in the grammarly app and the developer needing full access to what I type to use the full functionality of the app. I know this is common practice but I’m also starting to realize apple supports this type of piracy and is a witting accomplice in this unnecessary trend. If apple truly cared about my privacy they would ensure developers didn’t place you in a compromising position for using apps that would truly help improve certain aspects of your life without the need the need to know what I’m typing, bank account numbers and all manner of critical information that doesn’t make the app perform better. I’m ashamed of both the developer of grammarly and apple for supporting this type of behavior.
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.
Awesome On Computer, Needs One Thing on App
By Mina Bobina
So as a college sophomore, I’ve used Grammarly for my papers, and I’ve also used it to store my creative writing. It’s awesome for helping you write, especially on the Premium version. And I have the iPhone app for Grammarly Keyboard, but I want to see one thing on the app: transfer of my documents from PC/Mac to Android/Apple products. As I’m on the go, I don’t always want to carry around my laptop to work on documents, and don’t want to invest in a tablet when I could edit my documents on my phone the same way I could with Microsoft Word or Google Docs. If Grammarly can offer a Drive or Docs app feature in the near future to edit documents on my phone or a tablet for other people, I would 100% recommend Grammarly to everyone.
