Grammarly: Free Grammar and Spelling Editor

I recently had the opportunity to try a premium account with Grammarly and was quite impressed with this grammar and spelling editor.

This web-based software is gaining popularity rapidly and offers users a freemium style account format.  The free account will give you the ability to upload your own Doc or create a new one from scratch.  Once created or uploaded your Doc is checked for five common issues: spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and style.  Users have the option to download the final edited version as a text file and can bring that back into any text editing software such as MS Office or Google Drive.

For a monthly, quarterly, or annual fee a user can go premium and access additional features such as, but not limited to, a plagiarism checker, vocabulary enhancement, and even professional proofreading services.  Enterprise solutions are also available for volume or whole campus purchasing.

For those who like other integrations they also offer users a Chrome extension that works seamlessly with other popular sites such as Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and LinkedIn.  You can even download/install their Microsoft Office Add-in for Windows or desktop application for OSX.

Sign-up for a free account today!  Both students and teachers will appreciate the helpful tools that Grammarly has to offer.
