If only there was a real, seriously competent grammar checker available for Mac. IMHO there isn't. To have Grammarly among the (IMHO) incompetents, bombarding the Internet with ads for its software as well as charging (IMHO) exorbitant subscription fees is (IMHO) very upsetting. And supposedly we've entered the era of 'artificial intelligence'. Nope! Not in the field of grammar checking! Is English really so chaotic that no one can create a decent grammar checking program? *annoyed*

This is a cloud based service which requires registration. Not suitable for confidential texts.

The free version is constrained. The full version is subscription based and costs a minimum of $140/yr if paid annually and around 3x as much is purchased for shorter intervals.

Personally, I can't stand their commercials with the smug, pushy actors that insist if you don't use this stinking product then you're primordial ooze unworthy of written language. The whole smarmy feel of it regurgitates memories of the ads for "Blue Hippo Computers". Recall their ads: "Are you stupid? Uh huh. Are you poor and just unable to manifest any sort of financial responsibility? Uh huh. Do you want, no, DESERVE a new computer? UH HUH! Are you really stupid enough to send money to us with our annoying, insistently overly chummy cartoon mascot? Uh huh." I was amazed how many idiots fell for that. If you're not familiar with it, do a google search and laugh at the blatant rip off it was and how the company shipped, like, only a dozen computers for the years it ran the ad.

I was considering the upgrade to premium because I've been writing a lot more, but I write in Google Docs and it is not functional. Does anybody know of a way around that or if Grammarly is planning on adding this soon?

I found this alternative to Grammarly that work in Google Docs as an add-on. It is called GradeProof and it looks and works almost exactly like Grammarly: https://gradeproof.com/

GradeProof looks fairly useful, with the usual oblique grammar suggestions. It's not for learning English and it's not for those who don't understand grammar already. Also, it FORCES first time users to IMMEDIATELY start the 7 day Pro version trial. I could find no way to stop it. $10/mth after trial for Pro. Meh. I do like that it can import from DropBox!

This is app is so 1980's. Why would anybody want to check the file by dragging it to the app icon? Reload your document over, and over, and over in order to edit? Grammarly IS NOT free. The company offers a free crippled demo to get your email address. Then the company continually sends you emails. This is phishing. The Grammarly service uses fake news and web partners for its web presence. Grammarly is evil. Ten thumbs DOWN.

Grammarly would become a 'must have' IF: 1) the price would be fair (say 10 times lower) 2) it would work on Mail, Skype and any other program which uses text, not just text editors 3) if the suggested corrections would be less stubbornly presumptuouse, near imposing to lower the language AND PUNCTUATION level to a cheap one, good just for the crowd!

I suggest you beware this product. Not only the Company activates automatic renewals without consulting the user and without reminding that the expiration date is getting close, but the service rendered is fairly modest and is not worth the yearly 139.95 USD that they will surreptitiously charge you. Those charging policies are discouraged in the EU, but it appears that you may adopt predatory behaviours towards users in the US.
Also, there is no trace of actual development in Grammarly. Contrarily to Windows, there is no way to make it work on any word processor for the Mac although the release of a plug-in for Word has been promised for a long time now. I believe it is fair to claim that Grammarly is merely a beautifully marketed package that overcharges you for a service with little R&D.

It may be useful to know that while they automatically charge you full price, they litter your inbox with offer discounts.

i have received a prompt response by Grammarly Support which guarantees a quick refund for the unsolicited renewal. Their representative has replied back to me in a matter of hours at 6:20am local time on a Sunday. This deserves a praise and my sincere thanks. Of course, this can't change my mind on the state of the R&D of Grammarly.

The free version is more of a trial version that performs 150 checks. For a full featured product, with significantly more capability, the price of the subscription can range from $140-$360 a year, depending on the plan length.

Additional Comment: My impression of subscription is that you pay for it forever for as long as you use it and if the company goes under you lose your entire investment in the product and have to shortly buy another one.
