Editors' Review

Grammarian Pro2 X is a powerful tool to help you ensure all writing you do is polished, no matter what type of program you create it in. There are quite a few options for how to use the multiple features included in this program, so once you learn the interface, you can make the app work to suit your purposes.

Pros

Versatile tools: You can customize the tools in this program so the software checks for just the errors you're concerned with and ignores others. Generally, you can choose to scan for Spelling, Grammar or both together, but you can also be a bit more precise. There are many different writing styles and types included in the program, including Academic, Formal, Legal, Casual, Chat, Common, Technical, and more, and you can adjust these based on what it is you're checking at the moment. You can also go deeper and check off the specific types of errors you'd like the program to point out and uncheck others to suit your purposes.

Quick access: This tool sits right in your top Menu Bar, so you can bring it up quickly just by clicking the icon and selecting the process you'd like it to perform. When you've made your selection, a new window will open with the selected text on the left and a review section on the right where you can see the errors detected, suggestions for how to fix them and an explanation of the error.

Cons

Complicated installation: There are multiple steps involved in installing this program, but nowhere in the installer does it alert you to this. The instructions don't come up automatically, so you have to go looking for them, but you may not even know that you need to do that. The Help that does exist is not terribly clear either, but you can eventually figure it out with some experimenting.

Bottom Line

Grammarian Pro2 X for Mac is a good option for providing universal spelling and grammar guidance and corrections. It's nice to be able to use these tools in any application and on any text, even if the program you're using to write doesn't come with the tools. The many customization options mean you can use this app on all types of writing. You can try it out for free for 6 days, after which you'll have to pay $39.95 for the full version.

"Worked for a while and stopped"

October 03, 2014  |  By drlake_blcs

 |  Version: Grammarian Pro2 X 2.09b10

Pros

Provides good insight into grammar and usage.

Cons

My registered copy stopped working in Word. Emailed tech support only to have the email returned as undeliverable. (I used the online form to ask for help)

Summary

When it works, it is good. If you need tech support, forget it! I consider the price I paid for the program as wasted since it not longer works and I finally uninstalled the program.
