- It depends on what type of writing you're doing but what I found is that you need a tool that allows you to actually "write" and not have to worry about formatting. My personal favorite is Typora because you can write in Markdown and the app has features such as distraction free mode, remove spell-check, real-time markdown syntax formatting(so you don't see those ugly things such as ###, [blah blah](link here). Give it a try and enjoy 😊
When you use grammarly, they put some kind of advert for youtube, so when you watch youtube videos, it will stop and their advert will start. Note, this is not a youtube ad, this is an ad directly from them.
The browser extension is a must have, but I regularly pass my emails through this, or draft them in it just to catch dumb mistakes and make noticeable grammar improvements on the fly
