    Thank you for giving us these 3 options. I feel my best choice would be Pro Writing Aid. And as you suggested, I could also use the free version of Grammarly as back up. I was wondering if you have used an app called Hemingway Editor? Do you have an opinion about it? Thank you very much in advance.

      Hi Paolo,

      Thank you for your comments on this post. I actually like Pro Writing Aid. It just didn’t integrate with the variety of app that I use on my computer and mobile. As for Hemingway, I may be using this editor soon. I plan to publish an ebook on Amazon, and Hemingway would be perfect for that. 

      However, Grammarly is like the Netflix of writing apps. Granted, Hemingway and Grammarly are drastically different. Therefore, each has its own purpose. I may not rely on Grammarly as much, but I will keep it in my arsenal because it’s always been good to me.

      Best Wishes
