A decent tool to improve your writing

I have been using Ginger for many years to check, correct, and rephrase my writing to make my papers flawless.

PROS

Very simple and easy-to-use tool. Flexible. it works on PCs and mobile. I like that it can be easily integrated into Microsoft word and chrome. Ginger has many helpful features, like paraphrasing and read back, which is very appreciated by non-native English speakers.

CONS

I find it very annoying not to work with Google Docs. Also, the chrome extension does not work properly. It would be great if there is full offline proofreading. Other than that, I am very pleased with Ginger.

Vendor Response

Hello, Thank you for your feedback.. We currently don't fully support Google Docs but we are working to be fully compatible with Google docs. If you encounter with any technical issues, please contact our support staff - support@gingersoftware.com. Regards, The Ginger Team

Mastering English Grammar with Ginger

PROS

Ginger is a great tool to improve English grammar skills. Ginger provides easy-to-use features that help identify and correct grammar mistakes, such as misused words, spelling mistakes, plagiarism, incorrect verb tenses, and incorrect punctuation. The best feature I liked about Ginger is explanations for each mistake, so users can understand why it was made and how to avoid making the same mistake in the future. Ginger offers a wide range of writing and editing tools that can help users refine their writing.

CONS

I'm really satisfied with what Ginger offers. Ginger needs upgrade its add-in for MS office suite and Ginger Desktop application, it is a old school application needs to improve its UI.

Highly Reliable Software for Grammar and Spell checks

One of the best software to try that delivers high accuracy results. It helps you save your time and energy in fishing for the errors and rectifying the same.

PROS

Its ben three years now that I have been using Ginger Software and it has never let me down. As a writer I need to be quite particular about my grammar and spellings. Therefore, this software has everything to help me relieve for repetitive and the taxing process of checking for any grammatical or spelling errors, if any. Besides that it also provides various online drill sessions and tutorials to help one learn enhance his/her grammar.

CONS

The only thing that I do not like about Ginger is that it does not work in Google docs. Firstly you are supposed to write your text in the Ginger and then transfer the same from there to Google docs.

Vendor Response

Dear Diksha, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. You are correct, at the moment we are not compatible with Google Docs, we are looking for better solutions and hopefully a full integration into Google Docs. We wish you to keep enjoying Ginger.
