Chrome's inbuilt spellchecker is good, but sometimes it doesn't cut the mustard. This Chrome extension also checks for context, grammar and punctuation issues, and has a thesaurus and dictionary to boot.

JFYI that the main link being used is legacy and there's a newer flow here: https://free.grammarly.com/ (in case you all want to check that out). The older page will be sunset soon. Thanks, Ria, for the post!

I love Grammarly. The Pro version is a tad pricey, but it works. It's one big, big drawback is that it doesn't work in Google Docs (at least last time I checked).

This is a brilliant way to get people into their funnel. On the free text checker on their website Grammarly uses the format developed by SEO firms to inform you of errors without telling you exactly what they are—unless you sign up! Getting the benefit directly in the browser provides better UX. This way, you just get the upsell when you click on "open grammarly," which probably provides better conversion rates.

@riaface Thanks for mentioning Grammarly! The better link to use to get the Chrome extension is https://www.grammarly.com/ Could you update the link in the original post? @everyone - I'm a co-founder and head of growth at Grammarly and will be happy to answer questions or provide comments.

@riaface @everyone @akosner Thanks! We are working hard on improving performance, accuracy and compatibility. API is in the works as well. Stay tuned.

@riaface @everyone @max_lytvyn Do you provide an extension settings page, to allow the user to control which extensions Grammarly js-injects into? FWIW, it can break other extensions.

@osakasaul Yes, this is on a ToDo list. We currently provide a way to disable it for certain sites and automatically disable it for certain conflicting extensions, but will allow more control in the future.

@max_lytvyn RiteTag. Kindly stop injecting into this: https://chrome.google.com/websto... Thanks much, and feel most welcome to say hi - saul@ritetag.com

@max_lytvyn @riaface @everyone I've been using Grammarly for a few months now and I like it a lot. Some feedback: I'm a pretty good writer but Grammarly does catch some things occasionally that I miss. I'm inclined to purchase a subscription, but $20/month seems high for a tool I don't use that often, but when used it's great. I don't know - thoughts about your pricing structure?

@max_lytvyn @riaface @everyone Greetings max, this looks great.. i installed it but now says i need to sign up for a free account. Is this a necessary step ?

@mbritt Our pricing takes into account that the premium product is not necessary for most users because the free product is good enough for the needs of most users. Users who need the premium product are less numerous, but they also extract much higher value from the product. That makes the optimal price rather high. Also, the annual plan available at about $145/year is a better deal for anyone using Grammarly on a regular basis.

@mitch_menghi Mitch, yes, signing up is essential for many advanced features to work, such as personal dictionary, storage of your documents, personal progress dashboards and many more things that would not be possible without software being able to recognize a user. We do allow some use of the product in a completely anonymous way, without an account, but the functionality is limited because of inability to recognize the user and connect sessions together.

@max_lytvyn Hey Max, been trialing it and I must say its one of the best plugins I've seen in a long time.... very useful, so well done. I want to upgrade in fact I clicked UPGRADE, however, i was a bit shocked at the price... ok $12 does not cost much, however, when I put it into perspective with other plugins it's quite a bit of money. Google Apps itself cost much less than this, some full-scale CRM solutions charge $12 or thereabouts. I'm sorry to say I may have to hold off on the upgrade unless some sort of special comes around and it's more affordable.
Michael Britt@mbritt · The Psych Files podcast host
@max_lytvyn Thanks Max. Makes sense. And again - great tool. I wish you much success with it.

@riaface @everyone @max_lytvyn How do you handle PCI or PII data?

Maker
@max_lytvyn · Co-founder, Grammarly
@phillpafford We are fully PCI compliant at the level required for what we do. PII is a broader question, but in short, we view any PII as a liability, so we get rid of it as soon as practically possible and use industry standard security practices (encryption, anonymization, access controls, purging, etc.) to ensure safety of any PII we need to maintain to provide the services.
