Grammarly Vs Hemingway is the post where you could get to see the similarities and the differences between the two grammar checker tools.
So, let’s check it out the comparisons.
Grammarly Vs Hemingway
To show Grammarly Vs Hemingway App comparisons, I’m gonna discuss them separately so that you can learn about them well.
First of all, have some brief information about Grammarly. Grammarly was developed by Grammarly Inc. with the sole purpose of improving the English language. The tool was developed by Alex Shevchenko and Max Lytvyn back in 2009. Currently, Brad Hoover is the CEO of the company. Grammarly Inc. is headquartered in San Francisco and it has another office in Kiev.
Now, I’ll bring some of the notable features of the tool here in this part.
#Over 250 rules are checked
This is Grammarly’s claim, not mine. Yes, Grammarly claims that it can detect more than 250 kinds of grammatical flaws in your writing. I believe that this bold claim isn’t possible by any other grammar checker.
#Usable on varieties of platforms
You’ve already known that Grammarly is usable on different platforms. You can use it with your WordPress blog and MS Word. In addition, when you write emails or social media posts, you can get the help of the tool just by enabling its browser extension.
#Plagiarism can be detected
Google along with other search engines hates plagiarism very much. In fact, nobody loves to see that a piece of content has been plagiarized by others. Here, Grammarly can help you detect whether your writing is plagiarized or not because Grammarly is a plagiarism checker too.
#File uploading and copy-pasting options
To check a piece of content, the copy-pasting method is the most common option for most of the tools. Grammarly comes with both the copy-pasting and the uploading options so that you use any of the methods to check your content.
You can use Grammarly for free, but the free version has some limitations in it. The ultimate proofreading can be expected with the premium version of the tool which will cost you a little in comparison to the benefits that you’ll get with it.
Currently, Grammarly’s price for its premium version is as follows –
$11.66 per month for the annual subscription ($139.95).
$19.98 per month for the quarterly subscription ($59.95).
$29.95 per month for the monthly subscription.
The first option, the annual subscription, will give you a huge discount. So, you should go for that.

Till now, I’ve been talking all the positive sides of Grammarly. This doesn’t mean that there are no negative sides of the tool. In this part, I’ll tell you the pros and the cons of Grammarly so that you can decide whether it’s a good idea to use the tool or not.

Hemingway App was, in fact, a little-known tool to me and for this reason, I couldn’t include this nice tool in the initial some of the reviews of this kind of tool.
But after learning about the fabulous features of this tool, I’m not missing to include the tool this time. This is a very straightforward tool that can check for, detect, and correct almost any type of grammatical error in your text.
You can also use the tool as a desktop and you can download it directly from the site’s left side menu. The latest version 3.0 is available now.
Now, let’s come to the grammar checking part of this tool. After landing the homepage of this site, you’ll see that there’s a long sample text there.
Seeing this will help you understand the greatness of this nice tool. The error marking method of this tool is quite similar to other tools. Yes, this tool shows all the flaws in different colors so that you can figure out them easily.
The best part of this tool lies with the readability grading. Hemmingway App shows the readability of a text in grades. Seeing the grade, you can determine whether it’s easy to read or not.
The sample text shows a grading score of 6 which is considered to be good readability score. It also shows the total word count of the given text. Not only is that there’s the option for getting more information which will show you the reading time, characters, sentences and paragraphs of the text.
All these things will surely give you an in-depth idea regarding the text that you have placed in the box. The first problem that the tool showed is the adverb usage. Note that using more and more adverbs harms the readability of any text.
So, you should write a fewer number of adverbs in your writing.
The next issue was with the use of passive sentences. Passive sentences are hard to read most of the times, so you should prefer writing more and more actives sentences.
Then, the tool shows you the suggestion of using simpler words. It’s not good to write long and hard words. So, always try to write short and simple words that will be easy to read.
Finally, the tool shows the ease of reading different sentences. Long and complex sentences are hard to read which will surely reduce the readability score of your text.
So, practice writing short sentences which will be much easier to read. You’ll also see the same thing in two of the instances of the tool’s sample text.
On the top-right corner of the site, there are two options for Write and Edit. To write text in the box, you’ll have to tap the “Write” button. Similarly, to check the text, you’ll have to hit the “Edit” button. This way, you can either write or edit your text.
Above all, the tool is a great companion to make your text easy to read.
So, who’s the winner? From the in-depth discussions of both the grammar and punctuation checker tools, we can consider Grammarly as the winner because it has more functions and ability to detect flaws in writing than Hemingway app.
