Both apps are available for download on all iOS and Android devices. Both keyboard apps have similar basic functionality.
Grammarly’s major forte is eliminating grammatical errors in writing. It also suggests corrections as you type.
It supports several varieties of English language including American, British, and Australian English. It also has the ability to recognize slang and jargon.
1. Spell Checking
Grammarly is a downloadable keyboard app that eliminates spelling mistakes and grammatical errors from text. It helps you write flawless emails, word documents, social media posts, and LinkedIn messages.
It has basic typing features like in-app translation and voice typing but also has advanced tools such as a vocabulary builder and sentence correction functionality. However, it is important to note that Grammarly’s functionality is internet-dependent and will not work if your smartphone is disconnected from the internet.
Both apps have a number row and support many languages, but Gboard has an extensive emoji collection and several other extras such as diverse themes, floating mode, and built-in search engine. Additionally, Gboard offers more advanced and specialized keyboard layouts than Grammarly such as QWERTY, AZERTY, Dvorak, and Colemak.
2. Grammar Checking
Grammarly Keyboard is one of the more robust grammar checkers on the market. It will catch spelling errors, grammatical mistakes, style gaffs, and even contextually-inappropriate words. It also provides feedback on your writing and will suggest corrections. It’s available as a web app, browser extension, desktop software, and Google Docs add-on. You can also get it as a keyboard for your mobile devices.
The only downside is that it only checks English (American, British, and Australian). But if you write a lot of emails or social media posts in these languages, this feature might be worth it for you. Especially since it’s free to use. And it looks native on both iOS and Android, which is a bonus.
3. Vocabulary Builder
The Kindle Paperwhite has an interesting feature for English learners called Vocabulary Builder. It lets you look up words and memorize their definitions while reading. It also keeps track of your vocabulary and creates flashcards. You can access Vocabulary Builder from within any book. It shows you a list of the words you looked up along with their definition and original context. You can even mark them as Mastered when you’re done practicing them.
Grammarly’s keyboard app offers similar spelling and grammatical checks for any text you type, from outreach emails to Facebook posts. It can also correct vocabulary mistakes and suggest more eloquent alternatives. However, it doesn’t have a lot of the other keyboard features you might be used to like bigger emoji selections, diverse themes, floating mode, etc.
Themes are the underlying ideas or lessons explored in a piece of literature. They’re what make stories meaningful and create an emotional impact on readers. Themes can be universal or specific to the characters and events in a story. For example, the themes of The Grapes of Wrath might include injustice and inhumanity.
Scholars often talk about theme like it’s some highbrow feat of narrative engineering hiding beneath the surface of a book or poem. They’ll describe it as the intentional and philosophical confluence of story archetypes that convey a groundbreaking, socially or politically relevant ideal.
Gboard and Grammarly both offer sophisticated grammar review and a wide variety of language features including spell check, vocabulary building, glide typing and home screen widgets. They both also support emoji, multiple languages and have a built-in search engine.
Grammarly has been around since 2009, and its software helps users avoid grammatical errors in their writing. The app has various features that are designed to improve your writing, such as contextual spelling correction, advanced punctuation correction, and vocabulary enhancement.
It also offers a comprehensive set of tools for professional writing. Businesses can use the app to ensure that their employees’ emails and documents are free of grammatical errors.
Its AutoCorrect feature automatically corrects commonly misspelled words and expands abbreviations into full phrases. This can save time and prevent awkward text substitutions. You can also customize the list of words that are auto-corrected by tapping the settings button. Lastly, it offers a clipboard manager that stores copied texts for an hour before they expire.
