Grammarly is one of the best editors in the market; it doesn’t just detect spelling errors. It helps with sentence structure and punctuation errors and helps rephrase sentences for better readability.
You can use Grammarly as an app on your PC, install the web extension, or use the web version. The most flexible of the options is the chrome extension. Microsoft Word comes with its in-built spell-check, but it’s no match for Grammarly grammar check and clarity suggestions.
Grammarly has a regular version and a premium version; see pricing here. The standard version points out punctuation errors and spelling errors and gives clarity suggestions, but you can’t access the clarity suggestions except you’re on the premium version.
The premium version helps you rephrase sentences for clarity, and it also identifies sentence fragments, wordy sentences, passive sentences, etc.
