Grammarly's iPhone Keyboard Corrects Your Texts And Tinder Messages

iOS: For the past few years, I've been using Grammarly. The service corrects your spelling and grammar on the fly, and the Chrome extension is great for helping me catch tiny typos and misplaced commas in emails, or even posts on Lifehacker I'm adding to our CMS. Now Grammarly has extended to one more place: Your iPhone.

This week the service announced a new iPhone keyboard that brings its grammar-checking software to your texts, emails and the like you send from your phone.

The software was developed by "some of the world's leading authorities on linguistic technology", and is capable of picking spelling and grammar mistakes as well as point out sentences that others might find confusing and hard to understand.

Yes, your phone's built-in spell checker can already do some of that, but as we all know the iPhone's built-in autocorrect isn't exactly the pinnacle of accuracy. The keyboard works with everything from Tinder to Twitter. If you opt for Grammarly's Premium version, the keyboard will also make suggestions for different words you should use or style improvements in your writing.

I really enjoy using the Chrome extension (and recommend giving it a download if you haven't already). Even after running something I've written through the spelling and grammar checker in Word, it still catches mistakes I don't realise I've made. If you aren't already super attached to your iPhone keyboard, then downloading this one is a no-brainer.

    I've been using it to save myself from looking like a dill when commenting on Lifehacker and Gizmodo for years. Best Grammar checker available for Firefox and Chrome afaic.

    IOS honestly seems to handle aftermarket keyboards really really poorly. Constantly crashing into the next keyboard in the list, and even the Apple keyboard crashes out into the next keyboard frequently. Disabled all non standard keyboards, no longer an issue. Shame, because I really like swiping for one handed typing.
