When an APP changes your life

So, I like to think I am always up-to-date with the latest apps.

Any social apps, photography apps, creative apps or even productive apps I am usually the first to be all over it.

Recently I found a new app that has changed my life. – (Yep. I said it.)

I am actually using it right now.

It is called Grammarly.

Now, before I go into why I am obsessed, I do want to point out that it was actually released in 2009.. however, it has only just taken off in the past few months!

Grammarly is an app that you install into your web browser that AUTOMATICALLY EDITS GRAMMATICAL ERRORS AS YOU TYPE.

It works by improving communication techniques by helping users find and correct writing mistakes. The best part is, it’s so easy to use:

  • STEP 1:
  • Copy and paste any English text into Grammarly’s online text editor or install Grammarly’s free browser extension for Chrome and Safari.
  • STEP 2:
  • Grammarly’s algorithms flag potential issues in the text and suggest context-specific corrections for grammar, spelling, and vocabulary. Grammarly explains the reasoning behind each correction, so you can make an informed decision about whether, and how, to correct an issue.
  • STEP 3:
  • Cry and wonder WHERE HAS THIS APP BEEN ALL MY LIFE!

Currently, I have the free version of this app. But, don’t worry there is a premium version available too

The free version offers the online text editor and a free browser extension for Chrome and Safari, which corrects over 150 types of errors.
Grammarly for Chrome and Grammarly for Safari bring Grammarly’s powerful algorithms straight to you wherever you are writing online, including Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Tumblr. You can correct mistakes in your text with a single click. You will never ever make an embarrassing grammatical error again.

For users who want to supercharge their writing performance and leave no errors unchecked, Grammarly Premium is a paid upgrade that checks for over 250 types of grammatical errors, provides vocabulary enhancement suggestions, detects plagiarism, and provides citation suggestions. Grammarly Premium also includes Grammarly for Microsoft® Office, which allows you to use the world’s most accurate grammar and spelling checker without leaving your Microsoft® Word™ document or Outlook® email.
For all my fellow PR Pros out there, try it for your next media pitch, important email or campaign brief.
