    "All of the aspects that can be customized are really great. The live corrections are so much better than the ones in Microsoft Office programs. It's also really cool that you can type something on your PC, then continue it on your phone. This has really changed the way that I write."

    "GrammarCheck works as a simple Word substitute. It's actually easier to just use the Microsoft suite if it's available to you as it doesn't require an additional step."

    "This is an ok grammar checker but I prefer the built in tools of Google docs for papers and Grammarly for online comments. If you want a no-fuss grammar checker it would work and looks simple to use."

    "As someone that types in a few different languages, grammar and spell checkers can be inconsistent at best in foreign languages. I like this tool so much because it is more robust than the built-in spell checkers of Windows machines. It is nice to see errors that are commonly missed. I like that it is frequently updated so I'm sure I am getting the most current grammar and spellings of languages I am not 100% fluent in."

    "I had to write an essay for one of my classes, but I procrastinated as long as I could until the deadline was the next day. I worked hours on the paper, but I was not satisfied, however, I was extremely tired. I used Paperrater to check my spelling/grammar and provide some writing suggestions; the paper turned out to be pretty well written after many changes that Paperrated suggested."
