Grammarly Debuts iOS Keyboard App to Help Improve Your Grammar in Messages, Twitter, and More

Grammarly this week announced the launch of the Grammarly Keyboard app for iOS devices, which is available on the iOS App Store right now. Once added as a new keyboard in Settings, the app will then use Grammarly's grammar-checking software to proofread text you send in essentially any app that uses a keyboard.

Grammarly Keyboard will catch context-specific mistakes related to grammar, spelling, and punctuation, and Grammarly Premium users will be able to choose from various style improvements as well as gain more advanced word choice options. Above each correction is a short and clear explanation as to why Grammarly chose to fix the error, which the company says will help you "understand your mistakes and avoid them in the future."


In the company's blog post, examples are given of using Grammarly Keyboard in apps like Facebook, Twitter, Messages, Mail, Tinder, and more. The app can even warn you of when an auto-correct message has been typed and fix it before you send the message.
The keyboard integrates seamlessly with all your mobile apps and your mobile browser, so you’ll always look polished and professional, even on your phone.

Developed by some of the world’s leading authorities on linguistic technology, Grammarly’s algorithms not only catch context-specific grammar and spelling mistakes, but also the kind of confusing sentences that leave your colleagues (or worse, your boss) wondering what you’re talking about. For Grammarly Premium users, the keyboard will also improve word choice and suggest style improvements so the need for “Sent from my iPhone” can become a relic of the past.
After downloading Grammarly Keyboard for free [Direct Link], you'll have to allow the app to have full access to your keyboard in the iOS Settings app. Then, just tap the globe icon to cycle through your keyboards until you see Grammarly.

I've read that some linguists actually consider "text speak" its own dialect. Correcting to standard english grammar in these situations could actually be perceived as jarring or even cause confusion in your message. Just as an example, it would likely put a period at the end of every statement and that would convey anger/seriousness to most text recipients when that wasn't the intended tone. As a fan of formal grammar I like the spirit but I think the practical implementation won't be successful.

It will know everything I type, right? The concern is, whether one can trust their servers. I would like to know from someone.

I use this on my Mac. Legit! I just think they charge too much for their subscriptions.

I'm typing with Grammarly right now. I stopped using it. It needs a 3D Touch cursor. Not some dumb one either, one just like the native keyboard.

Periods mean anger? So I guess that means "Good night. I love you." would be interpreted as "GOOD FREAKIN' NIGHT WHORE! I HATE YOUR GUTS AND I WISH YOU WERE DEAD!!!" Darn it, and I've been texting my wife "I love you." for years.

Honestly, I think people would simply get used to it. I too am a fan of formal grammar and appreciate when fellow texters use proper grammar when they text me as I do when I text them. One of my most jarring texting experiences was when my mom finally got a cell phone and suddenly I'm getting texts from her like "R u comin over 2day?" And I'm like "WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH MY MOM... PERIOD!"

i'd probably use this if apple didn't require there be an app icon for every keyboard installed, turns me off of using anything different.

Yea. Putting them in a folder would be quite hindrance
