Methodology of Testing These Apps

I downloaded one application at a time to perform the spell check. Almost every application allows you to either type your content or copy-paste it on the editor. I introduced capitalization, typographical, contextual, and other spelling errors in my text.

Additionally, my sentences had missing punctuations, omitted words, and stylistic errors. Some of the auto-correction apps flagged errors in real-time and the others detected spelling errors after the completion of the text.

Initially, I tested more than 8 spell-checking apps, however, only 6 made it to the final list due to their effectiveness and accuracy. Here are the best spelling correction apps available in the market.
