Reading instructions is always a good idea.  Click on "Ask Question" and read what is written there.

Also, read the instructions on how to use the Grammarly service.


If you had, you would know that Grammarly is a web-based service. All you need to use the service -- besides the subscription -- is a web browser. Safari, Chrome, Opera, Firefox, or Internet Explorer all work with the service. And, of course, these and other browsers run on Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and other operating systems.


Grammarly does have a plug-in for MS Word (Windows) -- but you do not need this plug-in to use Grammarly. The plug-in -- written in Visual Basic for Applications -- automates the process of opening your browswer, logging into the service, and cutting/pasting your text into the browser window. You can, of course, do these "complicated" steps all by yourself.


To continue the theme of reading, you would know why add a plug-in for Pages and Keynote is not provided if you read the business pages. Combined, Pages and Keynote represent less than 10% of the Mac marketshare -- Office still commands 90% of the Mac market. And Windows commands about 88-90% of the total market. There is insufficient demand for a business to justify developing a script for such a small market. Of course, if you are good at Apple Script or Java, you can write your own.

So, I should copy and paste a million times between web-based portals and OS Mail because I am not the most popular?

Seriously, it's not easy to make an OS plug-in, and maybe Apple won't even allow it, but this kind of crappy attitude is really very negative and casts the Grammarly brand in an elitist, unhelpful light when you give answers like this.
