What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Grammarly Keyboard is a free productivity app that assists users with proofreading and editing any written content for any spelling, punctuation, or grammar errors within texts, documents, messages, and social media posts. Teens might use it when texting and creating social posts, but kids could also use it when writing sentences and paragraphs as they create stories and reports in a word processing app. Users will need to have a basic understanding of grammar, punctuation, and editing in order to know if the suggestion Grammarly provides is appropriate, because sometimes it may not be the best option. Read the app's privacy policy to find out more about the information collected and shared.

Helps grammar

I'm not the best when it comes to grammar. Grammarly changed that.

What's it about?

GRAMMARLY KEYBOARD is an app that offers users a way to edit their written messages, documents, and social posts. For those who have challenges with spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, and other editing and proofreading challenges, this app is a helpful way to check work for accuracy before sending it. After installing the app and the on-screen keyboard, activate it by holding down the globe icon and then selecting it for use. The green Grammarly symbol will appear within text boxes when typing so you know it's activated. Settings users can turn on and off include auto-capitalization, auto-correction, Caps Lock, keyboard clicks, "." shortcuts, and showing lowercase keys. Though English is the only available language, users can choose between American English, Australian English, British English, and Canadian English. A personal dictionary allows names and other information to be inserted. 


Is it any good?

This productivity app definitely offers a solution for kids and adults who want a safety net in place to check work for errors before they send it to others. The integration of Grammarly Keyboard into so many apps that are used for messaging, social media posts, and word processing documents is helpful to catch errors and fix them quickly. With the simple tap of the suggestion, it can be easy to improve the clarity and conciseness of messages, documents, and posts. However, this app should never be used as a replacement editor for anyone who does not have a basic understanding of grammar. It's easy to insert the suggestions offered. However, for those who are not aware of what these edits mean in the final work product, know that these suggestions may not always be the best choices.
