word on android has both grammar checking and spell checking


I find it interesting that android tablets and phones got grammar checking while Apple iPad only support spell checking. Is this because of limitation in IOS and iPad OS? Or just another Apple restriction or is Microsoft moving to make Android its mobile OS?

    This is pretty common with Microsoft's mobile apps, where certain features hit one platform first and then make their way to the other later ... on whatever schedule. It doesn't seem like a plan or for any good reason.

    I think Android has grammar checking as part of its keyboard engine. It’s not part of iOS, otherwise it would notice the pitiful grammar that it creates when it mutilates sentences with its shitty autocorrect.
