A great way to start writing practice

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Well, it is an outstanding tool, but only at some point of English learning. But for ESL/EFL Intermediate and Pre-Intermediate students it can become a powerful, motivating, encouraging and educative tool which will increase their passion for perfection. It helps as well to understand that all the mistakes, errors, typos, slips of tongue and slips of finger, blunders, gaffes and bloopers are valuable and any human being must learn from them and keep moving forward.

Pros:

The software is based on Natural Language Processing and is probably derived from Generative Grammar by Noam Chomsky. This software is a powerful tool for those who have just started to learn English writing. It can be a great helping hand which will teach you how to paraphrase and what's more, it will demonstrate you the incorrect spelling. It will give you hints on adequate word meanings, can translate your wordings in more than 50 different languages. It is capable to read your texts out loud, can train you and motivate you. You will be able to easily use the program wherever you like: there are versions of Ginger for Desktop, Chrome, Safari, iOS or Android and even Microsoft Office. It can be your proofreader, coach and motivator. Such a great step for your writing progress. It is a great tool for Pre-Intermediate and Intermediate ESL/EFL Students.

Cons:

I am not sure that there are versions for Linux (Ubuntu/Debian users).

Works Well

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: While the tool works well and improves my grammar by providing re-phrased sentence it doesn't always catch the punctuation.

Pros:

Works well and give you some good suggestions on how to improve grammar.

Cons:

Chrome extension causes delays in the text appearing when typing. The desk top app pop-up a lot. Doesn't always play nicely with other tools.

Hi Teresa, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! Glad to hear that Ginger is helping you improve your grammar and you're enjoying Rephrase. Regarding the desktop app pop-up - if you're referring to the Control+C+C shortcut, you have 3 options in your settings if you don't prefer this one! For the Chrome extension issues, I have shared this feedback with the team. If you have any compatibility issues on certain websites, you can email me directly at [email protected]. All the best, The Ginger Team

Customer service

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: Very bad experience once I am encountering a problem with the software. This is because there is no real person to help as customer support.

Pros:

It is user friendly. Automated correction through word, made it easier to use.

Cons:

Customer service. There is no real customer service. It has been one week, ginger software is not working. There is no direct person to help. Only after few days someone responding via email with different version of changes and nothing works. This is a gross violation of quality control of any industry. It should notified to all customers.

Adding spice to copywriting

5.0 2 years ago

Pros:

Ginger is a good, cost effective grammar software add on that works with both Widows and Mac. It integrates into a number of programs and is also available for iPad. As a native U.K. English speaker it offers that as a spell check and grammar as well as US English

Cons:

The pop up can be intrusive in some web apps. In particular it has caused issues in Miro, browser based, when trying to add text

Ginger review

4.0 2 years ago

Pros:

I appreciate the grammar-correction and vocabulary-enrichment capabilities of the software, as well as its integration with external applications such as Microsoft Word. Additionally, I am impressed by the software's ease of use and user-friendliness.

Cons:

The cost is higher than that of its rivals. Additionally, the reworded sentences can occasionally have a different connotation than the original.
