Can I use Grammarly for iPad with a hardware keyboard?

Grammarly for iPad is compatible with hardware keyboards. 

If you use the Grammarly Keyboard on your iPad, you will see the Grammarly tab at the bottom of your screen. However, please note that Grammarly won’t check your text dynamically as you write. When you finish writing your text using your hardware keyboard, tap Check My Text to activate Grammarly:

Grammarly will take a moment to check the text and provide suggestions on your screen. You will then be able to go through Grammarly’s suggestions one by one:  

To accept a suggestion, simply tap the suggestion card. If you’d like to dismiss the suggestion, press the trash bin icon in the lower right corner of the card. 

If you are unable to switch to the Grammarly Keyboard while using an external keyboard, tap the keyboard icon and select Show Keyboard. Then, press and hold the globe icon and choose Grammarly from the list:


Note: Currently, the Grammarly Keyboard for iOS does not support hardware keyboards. If you are using Grammarly on your iPhone and wish to utilize a hardware keyboard, you can copy and paste your text into the Grammarly iPhone Editor in order to check it there. If you would like to see Grammarly for iPhone support hardware keyboards in the future, please see our Feature Request section to record your feedback.
