"Greatest pice of junk at download.com"

July 11, 2008  |  By annajohansson

 |  Version: WhiteSmoke 2008

Pros

Nothing.

Cons

The software cannot correct spelling and grammar better than built in checkers in ms word or any other decent word processor. Worst of all, if you leave them your e-mail address, which is required to try the software, they will spam you everyday forever. Stay away. You have been warned.

"Annoying and wrong most of the time"

January 04, 2008  |  By jackdanem

 |  Version: WhiteSmoke 2008

Cons

Sounded good, but the window kept popping up when I didn't need it giving me suggestions that were just wrong. There are many better solutions. I also tried Correct English and have decided it's much better and the one I'm going to buy.

"Do not buy"

November 30, 2007  |  By treboryarb

 |  Version: WhiteSmoke 2008

Pros

Only the misleading marketing

Cons

This product is a con and that is now very obvious from the small size of the download package which is only 8MG. If it achieved everything promised in the marketing, it would have been significantly higher. Do not buy as it is inferior to the free Word grammer check.

"Total waste of money"

October 30, 2007  |  By wackyturtle

 |  Version: WhiteSmoke 2008

Cons

My writing is full of grammatical errors & I was told by my tutors that I had to watch out in my essays. I double checked using this software & it did nothing but highlighted incorrect spellings & few alternative words to replace mine. Seriously, Word already does the same job. Do not buy this product. I can tell they have invested heavily on their marketing strategies. I'm so unhappy.

"WhiteSmoke gives me a simple solution that helps me write with confidence"

October 21, 2007  |  By Clarence.Toone

 |  Version: WhiteSmoke 2008

Pros

Lots of features just a click away. WhiteSmoke not only gives me a spell checker but also solves some of my common grammar problems. For me, the big bonus is the "text enrichment" that suggests different words and helps me write more varied sentences.

Cons

Works pretty well for me, not really anything I don't like.
