8 Best Grammarly Alternative

Computer-aided spelling check is a game changer for content creators. Here are the 8 best Grammarly alternative software.

Hemingway App

Hemingway is a cloud-based app to use for rewriting concise sentences. This is one of the best free alternative to Grammarly. The Hemingway editor’s best feature is the ability to score the readability of the text. The writer can use this tool to paraphrase sentences and create easy-to-read content for free.

The tool also provides recommended grammar fixes on the right side of the interface such as: adding more adverbs, sentence # is hard to read, # of phrases that can be rewritten…etc.


  • Online version: Free
  • Desktop app: $19.99


Readable mainly checks the readability of your writing based on the Flesch Kincaid and Gunning Fog algorithms. This paid tool can do much more than Hemingway editor because it can detect excessive passive voice, incorrect use of adverbs, and awkward sentences.

On top of all, Readable can also analyze existing web pages via URL checker to see the quality of the writing. Preimum users can see a full history of every URL they have checked.

For SEO professionals, this tool can also provide ranking insight based on how fixing grammar can improve things.

WordTune focuses more on full sentence rewrites. The user can simply hover over a part of sentence, and the editor will suggest multiple edits to rephrase it. This is much faster process than using something like the Hemingway editor or Grammarly.

For main paraphrasing use, this is the best option.

ProWritingAid is a top Grammarly competitor with many of the same features.

Grammarly is great for editing your document, but if you want to make sure it’s perfect from start-to-finish then ProWritingAid may be the tool of choice. It has some interesting reports like an alliteration analysis and dialogue tag check that Grammer just doesn’t offer in their free product!
