GrammarCheck Review

Daniel Midson-Short
November 27, 2019

GrammarCheck is a spelling and grammar checking website that seems to be powered by Grammarly software.

The site appears to be an external, alternate webpage from Grammarly where visitors can paste text into the text box to receive an analyzation completed via the Grammarly free version.

Users can choose to run a more comprehensive “Deep Check” instead, which redirects them to buy a paid Grammarly plan.

First off, let’s talk about what’s good about Grammar Check. Then, we’ll see where it fits against the best grammar checkers.

Our Verdict

his “tool” seems to be less of a tool and more of a personal site that someone has embedded Grammarly software on. We recommend using Grammarly , ProWritingAid , or WhiteSmoke instead.

GrammarCheck Pros

1. Easy to Use

GrammarCheck is fairly simple to use. Just paste or type your text and select the kind of check you want to run to get started.

Like most of the other tools on this list, GrammarCheck highlights grammatical errors and offers suggestions to correct each error.

2. Sophisticated Grammar Features

Since GrammarCheck runs off of Grammarly software, it offers sophisticated features such as a passive voice detector.

3. High Limitations and Transparent Grammar Rules

Since this tool is powered by Grammarly software, it has the same high word limits as the service.

Therefore, GrammarCheck also follows the same grammar rules and style guides as Grammarly.

Now it’s time to look at the cons of GrammarCheck.

GrammarCheck Cons

1. Accuracy is Off

GrammarCheck, like Grammarly, isn’t always consistent and accurate about finding grammatical errors.

For example, this tool (like some others) missed the wrong usage of the word “you’re.”

2. GrammarCheck Can’t Measure Conciseness or Plagiarism

GrammarCheck users can access conciseness measurements through the site when running a Deep Check that is completed through Grammarly Premium.

That being said, GrammarCheck itself can’t measure conciseness.

The same applies to plagiarism. GrammarCheck doesn’t offer a plagiarism checker, although Grammarly does.

3. No Reporting Option or Human Review Available

With GrammarCheck, there’s no current option to run grammar reports and export them, unless a user chose to run a Deep Check with Grammarly through the site.

The same can be said for human reviews. GrammarCheck itself doesn’t offer them, but Grammarly does.

4. Lacking Diverse Device Compatibility

GrammarCheck doesn’t offer any kind of extension, app, or plugin. The tool can only be accessed via mobile or web browser.

5. Not Multilingual

GrammarCheck does not seem to be multilingual, which may be another by-product of the tool piggybacking on Grammarly’s service.

6. No Customer Service Reply

No live chat, ticketing, or knowledge base options are available through GrammarCheck.

The site used to offer a contact form, which is currently closed.

The only point of contact listed appears to be a personal email of the website owner. We emailed her to ask a question about the tool and never received a response.

Now that you know the pros and cons of GrammarCheck, you might be wondering how much the tool will set you back.

GrammarCheck Cost

While a free check is available through GrammarCheck, The Deep Check button redirects users to Grammarly to sign up for a paid plan.

Do I Recommend GrammarCheck?

Not really. This “tool” seems to be less of a tool and more of a personal site that someone has embedded Grammarly software on.

Users are redirected to Grammarly from this site if they want to run more comprehensive checks. It’s more convenient to use Grammarly instead and skip the middleman, here.
