Grammarly | Instant Grammar Check - Plagiarism Checker - Online Proofreader - UPDATED

UPDATE (16.3.15): I have uninstalled Grammarly for a number of reasons. It's grasp of the English language (UK English) was even worse than mine! The WORD plug-in is NOT free and tooo expensive me thinks, particularly when there are free alternatives. There have also been some rather scathing reviews...

A useful one on the Grammarist blog rather supports my experience and identifies a few other short comings, the comments are also of interest...

And another critical review by no less than the Economist, they are less than impressed with Grammarly on a number of counts...

Just glad I did't fork out any cash...

Try Writers Diet its free and it does a similar job. I have an article here.

Grammarly makes you a better writer by finding and correcting  up to 10× more mistakes than your word processor.
