Introducing Grammarly for iPad

Grammarly for iPad allows you to access the Grammarly Editor and use the Grammarly Keyboard on your iPad through one app. 

Before you download and install Grammarly for iPad, you’ll need to make sure that the app is compatible with your tablet. We support iPads running iOS 11.2 or newer, except for iPad Mini models. 

Switching between the keyboard and the editor

To start using Grammarly on your iPad, open the Grammarly application you installed on your device. 

To access the Grammarly Editor, tap My Grammarly. Here you can create new documents and edit existing ones. 

If you’d like to set up your keyboard, tap Keyboard at the bottom of the screen. Then, open any other app on your iPad and tap a text field to start typing with the Grammarly Keyboard.

Afterward, you can start typing or paste your text to the Grammarly Editor.

Note: Currently, you can check up to 100,000 characters (including spaces) at a time using Grammarly for iPad. 

Checking text

Once you create a document and start typing, Grammarly will automatically check your text. While your document is being checked, the Overall score icon spins in a circle to indicate that checking is in progress. You can keep typing, and Grammarly will continue checking.

When Grammarly detects a writing issue in your text, you’ll see a red, blue, green, or purple underline. Tap on any underlined word or phrase to see Grammarly’s suggestion. These suggestions will also be available in the sidebar on the right:

To see a detailed explanation about a suggestion, tap Learn more at the bottom of the suggestion card.

If a suggestion is incorrect or you’d like to report it for any reason, tap the three dots and choose your preferred option to proceed.
