Excellent, Excellent, Excellent Program! I've needed something like this for ages! Before this, I would open up TextEdit every time I needed a word checked, but no more!

The Good:
1. Unobtrusive(used it for this word :D); small window that doesn't get in the way.
2. Fast; Just type the word then a space and you have a result!
3. Dictionary; I like the idea of loading the online dictionary.
4. Window Levels; The fact that you can set the window level is very cool.
5. The Price; it's free! Free is good!

The Bad:
1. Not quite perfect; The Apple Spellchecker isn't perfect, but that's in the system, not the fault of this application.

I hope to see even more of this little app!

It could also need a quick dropdown menu to change the language it checks.

(looks good!)

In my opinion, this release represents the beginning of a useful utility, but it needs more work.

1) The Apple online spellchecker may not be the best. I ran a test on the utility, "helo." It gave two possible definitions, but did not suggest a misspelling for "hello" or "halo."

2) Also, it would be cleaner if it rode in the background and could be brought to the front by a user-definable key-stroke combination.
