Ginger Review 101: Best Features, Plans, Pros, Cons, Reviews [2023 Guide]

by Shahnawaz Alam

I was skeptical about trying out other proofreading or grammar-checking tools after using the Grammarly pro version for more than a year. Then I found Ginger. The experience I had with the tool is worth writing something about.

I am a writer and a PROUDLY NON-NATIVE one. I make mistakes while writing, and I know that it is ok to make some as long as you are trying to correct them. That is where tools like Ginger, Grammarly, or WhiteSmoke come in handy.

Thanks to AI-integrated tools, writing has become easier. If you are thinking of using Ginger, then I suggest you read this review first. I have reviewed the tool in this article so that you know what you are using before spending your money on it.

About Ginger Grammar 

Ginger Grammar

Ginger is a good writing tool for writers using digital devices like desktops, mobile and tablets. The tool has AI-based tools providing you with different features you find helpful while proofreading your written documents and blog posts. The tool is equipped with grammar-checking and correction features. 

Ginger also offers you a rephrasing tool allowing you to avoid redundancy in your writing. Also, the tool integrates a dictionary allowing you to check if the word you used is proper for the sentence. You can even improve your writing style after following the Ginger writing assistance.

Ginger Grammar Checker Features

Ginger has all the features you might ask for. Here are some worth mentioning features of the Ginger writing tool. 

Grammar Checking Tool

Grammar Checking Tool

Ginger has a grammar-checking tool allowing you to check and correct common errors. Here are some common mistakes you can fix using the tool –

  • subject-verb agreement
  • misused words
  • singular/plural nouns
  • consecutive nouns
  • contextual spelling correction

Correcting grammatical mistakes is a common feature of these tools. You can also use the synonyms provided by their AI-based tools.

Spelling Check 

Spelling Check

Having experience writing for different blogs, I can say that you will NEVER miss a TYPO. Typos are common when you are writing extensively. The spell-checking option of the Ginger tool is very helpful. You can easily find typos and spelling mistakes and correct them easily. 

Rephrase Sentences

Rephrase Sentences

Sometimes, we get used to writing sentences that are too complicated to understand. Some of them might also have syntactical errors. That’s when you rephrase and make it smaller and simple. Similar to Grammarly, you also have a rephrasing tool in Ginger. You can create the perfect sentence for the paragraph using the tool. 

Improves Writing With Training Assist

Improves Writing With Training Assist

If you are planning to improve your writing skills, then the ginger writing assistant tool might be able to help you. The tool gathers data from your past writing mistakes and uses them to help shape your writing style.

Text Reader

You can even enhance your pronunciation with the help of the Ginger writing tool. Aside from the grammar-checking tool, the software also has a text-to-speech engine allowing you to enhance your pronouncing skills. You can listen to the pronunciation of different words in different accents.

Ginger Translator

I really loved the translator tool of the Ginger Grammar checking tool. You can translate text /content into any language you want to translate it into. There is no need to always use google translate all the time. 

Ginger Dictionary

The dictionary tool of this writing assistant is another plus point for using it. You will learn new words and their meanings instantly and expand your vocabulary. Also, you can learn from the contextual synonyms of the words you are writing. This gives you different ways of writing something using different words in the vocabulary. 

Among all these features, I loved the text reading feature and the writing assists for better writing. But, most of the features packed in this writing tool are helpful and are worth paying for. But there are some negatives also, which I have discussed below. 

Ginger Software: Free Version vs. Premium Version

The Ginger Grammer checker and writing assistant tool can be used for free to check spelling errors, grammatical mistakes, and writing style. However, with the free version, you can only check up to 900 characters at a time. Furthermore, there is also a weekly limit to the number of times this tool can be used to make grammatical or spelling corrections. 

The tool can also be used to rephrase existing sentences to improve the overall writing quality for free. While there is no character limit, there is a limit to the number of times the ‘rephrase’ option can be used. Currently, up to 40 sentences can be rephrased using the free version of Ginger Grammar Checker.

Features like Translation and Essay Checker are not available in the free version of the Ginger Grammar Checker tool. 

On the other hand, the premium version of the Ginger Grammar Checker tool offers advanced features like translation in 40 plus languages, unlimited sentence rephrasing, grammar or spelling corrections for up to 5,000 characters at a time, and the option to check full sentences and paragraphs and correct multiple mistakes at once. The premium version also allows users to download Ginger Grammar Checker as an add-in to Microsoft Office. This feature is available on Windows for now. 

Ginger Grammar Checker Tool has three premium pricing plans. These are as follows – 

  • The 2-year plan: Users opting for this plan will have to complete a one-time payment of INR 4500 or 54.14 USD. 
  • The yearly or Annual plan: Users opting for this plan will have to complete a one-time payment of INR 2900 or 34.89 USD. 
  • The Quarterly plan: Users opting for this plan will have to complete a one-time payment of INR 990.

How to Use Ginger Grammar Checker

You can use the Ginger Grammar Checker in three different ways – by directly visiting Ginger Grammar Checker’s official website, by installing the Ginger Grammar Checker extensions on Chrome, Extension, or Safari, or by downloading the mobile application on your smartphone. 

In the case of the first method, type Ginger Grammar Checker in the search bar. You will be able to see the official website at the top of your search results. Click to open Ginger Grammar Checker’s official website. 

As soon as you open the official website, you will see a text box on top of the page. Paste a part of your writing in the text box and click on the ‘Correct’ button. As soon as you click the ‘correct’ button, the tool will highlight the errors in your text. If you place your cursor on the highlighted portion, you will be able to view the correction suggested by the AI tool.

Ginger Pros & Cons

Ginger Pros & Cons

I liked most of the things about the Ginger tool. However, some things did not completely sit well with me. Here are some pros and cons of the tool I thought you should know about. 

Pros Cons
➕ The tool offers you unlimited access to their different features for the premium package. You can use all the features as much as you want.  ➖ The tool works as a great proofreading software allowing you to rectify most Mistakes. The translation option is great. But it is not as good as Google Translate. 
➕ Ginger performs well when it comes to checking grammar and spelling. It works perfectly as a correction tool. You can easily solve spelling errors.  ➖ The reporting features of the tool could really use some touchups. Ginger fades in comparison in front of alternatives like Grammarly or ProWritingAid.
➕ You can use the tool on windows, mac, and in different browsers. The tool is widely browser friendly except for Firefox. You cannot use Ginger on Firefox.  ➖ You will find a web editor in many free writing assistant tools but not Ginger. I think it is a downer for a grammar-checking tool like Ginger. 
➕ When you are planning to add a second or third language to your CV, the translation tool Ginger comes in handy.  ➖ I know that this tool is not for checking plagiarism. But all the other alternatives, like Whitesmoke and Grammarly, offer plagiarism checking. So, not having this feature is also a minus point for Ginger. 
➕ Through the personal trainer feature of Ginger, you can really improve your writing skills. The tool knows what your general mistakes are (that is a little creepy, though) and can help you correct them without wasting too much of your time.  ➖ The worst drawback of the software is its customer service. There is no chatbox, and a poor knowledge base holds the customer service part back. This site really needs some improvement.

Bottom Line

The beginner plan of the Ginger software starts at $13.99/month, which is cheaper than the $30 per month price of the premium version of Grammarly. If you want an inexpensive tool, ginger leaves it up to your requirements. However, the tool could improve in several areas, like customer service, reporting, and better grammar check and spelling accuracy.
