Do NOT install this. Disabling it didn't work. Couldn't find an uninstall feature. I tried to remove it with AppZapper now i get gobbledy gook on my screen. The developer has abandoned it and there is no support, advice, not even an email link on the amendment site anymore. AVOID THIS APP.

I uninstalled this most ridiculous concept in software minutes after installing, months ago. I don't even want to review this thing now, the only way I can understand it is if it were a joke.

Now, several weeks (months?) after the fact, a dialog began popping up with every new app I launch...

It had left behind an input manager...go to /Library/InputManagers/ and remove the Amendment folder there. If anyone knows of other droppings it leaves, please add.

You must have had a weird issue. Remember this is still Beta. I use Amendment every day and absolutely love it.


Nah. It just leaves nagging parts behind.

As for the app when it's installed, my review in June on another site was as follows:


I tried it.

The key-combo selection wasn't a problem, it's customizable and it seems to make a reasonable choice to begin with, depending on whether you're on 10.3 or 10.4, etc.

While the app is attractive and stylish in the Cocoa fashion, and smartly introduced as a preference pane, I found it to be almost hilariously intrusive. Really, you have to try it, it's much worse than you would imagine by reading the description.

You know how you'd be typing along and you make a typo and you FEEL it before you even see it, and you automatically backup a space and correct it? You can't do that anymore. Even if the error happens at the beginning of a word, even if you decided to use a different word. The grey pop-up appears, it's insisting, and it's modal. You must deal with it and its interface NOW, but it doesn't know what you want, and won't get out of your way.

I uninstalled it in record time.


Or so I thought, lol.

Installing Amendment creates problems with other programs... so far Onyx and Visualhub generate AppleScript errors... Onyx errors are on startup and Visualhub errors occur on just about any selection made after startup. I traced it back to remembering that I installed Amendment which is pretty useless to me since I would want such a program for use with Mail and Applework (word processing) among other programs Amendment didn't work with. Anyway when I removed Amendment Applescript errors stopped in the useful programs I was pulling my hair out for!!!

I have been using Amendment for over a month now and I have to say I absolutely love it. Despite it's short comings (the fact that it doesn't work in Pages or Mail) it has increased my productivity by 12%!

Seriously though, it's great. I strong reccomend it.

Nice idea but it doesn't support most writing programs available for the Mac. I know that this is an initial release, but come on, it doesn't work with Apple's Mail, Pages or Safari, nor does it work with Microsoft Word, BBEdit, Yojimbo, Mori and many other applications.

Amendment also doesn't let you add words to the dictionary while you're typing.

Actually it does, hit control-delete and you can modify/learn a new word.
