    "Stay Away, They Will Rip You Off"

    October 15, 2014   |   By clay590

    Version: WhiteSmoke 2012 1.0.6034.13143

    Pros

    Nothing positive to say about the product or company

    Cons

    Doesn't always work when needing to perform a spell check. They will sell you a product, it will stop working and they will offer you a discount rather than repairing the problem

    Summary

    I paid for a life time subscription. They said they were upgrading but I would receive a link to upgrade for free since I was a lifetime subscriber. They upgraded and shut off my account. When contacted they wanted to sell me another subscription at a discounted rate rather then upholding their end of the contract. POOR COMPANY.

    "WARNING DO NOT BE FOOLED"

    September 30, 2014   |   By mbodey

    Version: WhiteSmoke 2012 1.0.6034.13143

    Pros

    VERY LITTLE

    Cons

    It worked for a while. I bought the premium, so it was a lifetime deal with all the upgrades etc. Then the license expired so I "attempted" to contact the company. Received confirmation they received my complaint. Never heard from them again. Good times after spending 2-300 bucks. Thanks WhiteSmoke, I think I just got SmokeScreened.

    Summary

    DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM

    "Beware, unresponsive and unreachable."

    September 12, 2014   |   By 3aguilar

    Version: WhiteSmoke 2012 1.0.6034.13143

    Pros

    Can use it anywhere, as long as they don't deactivate your key code.

    Cons

    Paid $269 for the Premium, Lifetime package, and just over a year later, I keep getting annoying pop-ups asking me to renew. They have deactivated my key code, I sent them an email 2 days ago, no response, I've called several times, no one answers, I even received a message stating that the voice message box is full. I tried "Live Chat" several times, and of course, no one is on the other end of that either. I even have a copy of my purchase. The owners of WhiteSmoke need to learn how to spell the words "service" and "honoring a purchase".

    Summary

    Highly annoying and disconcerting when you purchase a product, you can no longer use the product you paid for, and they are not responsive. Buyer beware, and if you are considering purchasing, try calling their number, emailing them, and using the live chat before you buy. If they do, you have no guarantee that they will, after you make your purchase.

    "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
