Best Free Grammar Checker Apps for Android
The role that English language is playing in all our lives, in offices, schools, colleges, etc. needs no introduction and definition. As a matter of fact, our country has more number of English speakers than the state of England has itself. Quite evidently, one simply cannot afford not to learn the basics and elementary rules for this one language. Whether grammatical errors or spelling mistakes, it kind of ruins your impression on the listener or reader if you do not say or write it the correct way. Here is where, any of these free grammar checker apps can come in handy. Of course, to err is human and you cannot just by heart all the laws of the language and remember them at all the times. But you sure can carry a guide, a grammar checker app for all those times in your handset.

However, all the apps are anytime the best to deal with any problems with the English language. But the app that best suited my requirements was – Ginger Keyboard + Page. This little code of android software is such a power-house. With all the built in features like Dictionary, Translator, Synonyms Finder and Smart keyboard that literally knows what you want to type, it surely, cancels out the need for many other android apps to deal with these needs separately. I mean I’ll install Ginger Keyboard + Page and won’t have to install a Thesaurus app individually; not to mention it would make me give the use of any other free grammar checker a skip.
