Due to the larger screen sizes of phones, typing on them is now slowly becoming a pleasant experience for most users. People now primarily use their smartphones to type emails, social media posts, texts, chat messages, etc.
But sometimes, it becomes a little embarrassing if you ignorantly post an update or send an email to your boss with some easily avoidable grammar mistakes in your text.
Life is relatively easy on desktops as you can integrate any useful grammar check browser plugin or use any proofreading software to get the job done.
Similar apps for Android and iOS are also available, but using them to proofread your every single status update, email, and social media post would be so old school.
What if some app could automatically correct all the wrong spellings and grammar, so you have to write the text and worry less about being grammatically correct.
Most Android keyboards offer spellchecks, but not all can auto-correct your grammar while typing. The brand new keyboard app from Grammarly is designed to correct you while you are busing typing some text on your phone.
How to use the Grammarly Keyboard app:
If you are from the blogosphere, you don’t need any introduction to Grammarly – an online grammar check tool. The tool is available as a plugin and software app for major browsers and operating systems.
Now, as the app is also available on mobile platforms – Android and iOS – users can now leverage the tool to write error-free writing quickly from anywhere.
The Grammarly keyboard app works smoothly with all your apps. You need to install it, enable it from settings, and then you are good to go.
Do note that the app requires an active internet connection to work. So if you are offline, the app will not check grammar and show suggestions.
While typing, the Grammarly keyboard app will continuously monitor your text and flag several errors on its icon, as shown above. Not just errors, it will also suggest the corrections and type of grammatical errors. Tap on the suggestion to auto-correct mistakes in your text.
The keyboard app is not as advanced as Gboard. There is no option to customize the keyboard height and one-handed mode. However, there is enough spacing between the letters on the keyboard, making typing more comfortable.
As the app is entirely new, it also has some unexpected bugs, which we hope the Grammarly team will fix soon.
You won’t face any issues while using the app, but the app fails to detect any error in some contexts. But, that’s a common issue with most grammar checking tools available in the market right now.

Other features of the Grammarly Keyboard app:
- Double-space full stop
- Vibrate, sound, and pop-up on keypress.
- Choose between American and British English preferences.
Grammarly Keyboard is highly recommended for professionals and students who want to watch their grammar and improve their writing skills. The only con is that the app size is 70 MB, which means if you still use a device with low internal storage, you will have to free up some space for it. Also, the app requires an active internet connection to work and will take some time to fix early spotted minor bugs.
