    "Corrects my grammar and I am a native english speaker!"

    May 02, 2014   |   By Graduates2016

    Version: WhiteSmoke 2012 1.0.6034.13143

    Pros

    I purchased WhiteSmoke software to help me write papers for school and send more professional emails at work. I was surprised by how many mistakes I made in my grammar, but it was able to detect most of the mistakes I believe and it even showed me words to use in place of low vocab words I had originally used. It is super user friendly.

    Cons

    I was hoping that there would be more languages in the translation feature because I work and study in international relations, but for now the 70 languages that they offer will do.

    Summary

    I would definatley suggest this software for any student, professional or anyone that needs help improving their writing. It makes everything look so much more professional and catches a lot more mistake than my regular windows checker.

    "*** SCAM ALERT ***"

    February 26, 2014   |   By Aionion

    Version: WhiteSmoke 2012 1.0.6034.13143

    Pros

    It does check spelling and grammar. However, it doesn't do so any more than any other writing checker out there.

    I purchased this product over 3 years ago, not much has changed.

    Cons

    VERY bloated. Will slow down most operating systems (I have a high end gaming rig).

    False advertising. The company does in fact, make a living by LYING to customers (as others have said). They advertise on their website and in the emails I get, that the latest version (v8) is out, it's live. But it isn't! I've been waiting for v8 for over 5 months now.

    But the biggest con for me...is that this company does business by conning customers.

    Summary

    I paid for a new license, a pre-order for v8 back in Sept 2013 as a pre-release for the new v3 of the product. I was told it would be released in Oct 2013. Oct came and went, no update. I contacted Whitesmoke, they said it would be released in Nov. Nov came, no release, they said it would be released in Dec. December came and went, no updated. I contacted them once more, they said it would be released in Jan 2014. No update...so again, I contacted. And once again, I got the same standard, form response: "Sorry for the delay, it will be released next month." This has happened every single month.

    I've kept every email correspondence and email advertisement from them as well as all chat transcripts. I plan on posting them on scam alert sights to prevent others from being duped by this horrible company
