"Grammarly Killer"

Pros: It works with a lot of languages. It has better visual helpers than Grammarly. And the free version is more than enough. AND you can use the Chrome extension WITHOUT creating an account. ­čśâ

Cons: There is nothing I don't like about this app.

"It is at least as good as any other grammar/spell checking software I know of"

Comments: I like to run the text pieces I review through a few softwares, just to be sure no mistakes go unnoticed, and also to become aware of issues that pass through my attention. Language Tool is one of the last softwares I use in this queue checks, and to my surprise it sometimes catches a few mistakes that go through both my own attention and also the checks of the similar softwares used before it. I believe no grammar checking tool will ever make a thorough multiple check obsolete, but Language Tool is certainly one of the steps I am sold on maintaining on my 'queue' for the foreseeable future

Pros: Very useful for grammar checking any pieces of text that are important or really need to be flawless. I believe that, for most users that do not need a strictly flawless proofreading, Language Tool alone is more than enough. I consider it to be at least as good as any other single similar tool, only being beaten by multiple independent checks through different softwares or readers

Cons: Although I have no specific issues with this tool, and I think it takes care of most evident needs users have when using it, I believe it is still not at the level of polishment of a few other classic softwares, where they predict and address issues that are not evident, but that are common to most users, but that become more evident to professionals on that specific topic. I believe the next step for this tool would be the inclusion of a type prediction feature/algorithm.

"A Grammar Tool Easy to Use"

Comments: I find LanguageTool a good tool for grammar and spelling checks.

Pros: I use the free version and love the multi-language option. LanguageTool recognizes grammar and spelling errors for documents written in UK & American English, Italian, Spanish, and more.

Cons: The yearly subscription must be paid all at once if you want to keep the cheap rate. If you choose the monthly payment, the price is approximately three times more expensive.

"I check everything with LanguageTool"

Comments: My native language is Croatian. I've been using LanguageTool since my college days and I don't know how would I be able to write a text in a foreign language without it anymore! I use it mostly for English and Russian and I would just copy-paste the whole documents and see a bunch of mistakes I wasn't aware of. I use it to check my business emails, translations, resume... I honestly recommend it, it's very helpful and easy to use.

Pros: LanguageTool not only points out your mistakes but categorizes them using colours and suggests several answers that are correct and seem to fit. And it works on the syntax level! Plus, I find it awesome that it differs American and British English. It's very user-friendly and visually appealing.

Cons: I really have to say I can't think of anything, it has been created very thoughtfully and thoroughly.
