As an Englishman living in France it's invaluable and I couldn't live without it to help with grammar corrections when writing.

I use it in French, it is a wonderful, very efficient tool. I use it most of the time for reviewing thoroughly an article or book after writing it: it does its job and helps me greatly, if only for spotting those small remaining mistakes that I overlooked — it saves time. I am really glad to discover it exists in English too, and from my very positive experience of using the French version for more than five years, I can recommend it without any hesitation. If there was the equivalent for French speakers writing in Engish, I would buy it without any hesitation.

Great new version. The previous vresion was already rpetty good with the corrections, but the new one seems even better with expressions and checking consistency throughout a document. Well worth the update as far as I am concerned :-)

I haven't yet had the new version in my hands for long, but so far it looks like a nice upgrade on the previous version. I especially like the integration in Mail.

How do you get Antidote to work from the website download? I click download, but when I get to the installation screen I get an error.

It looks like you tried to run the updater without having the application installed on your Mac before.
You need to have the full version to install the update…

Excellent spelling and grammar cehcker. Really good!!! I used to be a Correcteru 101 user. The 101 is more or less a thing of the past now and not only did Antidote surpass it's performances as a spelling and grammar checker, but it has an exceptional integration in most major software - and now even Office 2008.
Really good app!

This is clearly a mistake. Current version of Antidote HD is 5.1.

The latest update is in fact v.7.5.1. If you have Antidote HD installed on a Mac, look in your Applications: you'll see the version shown is 7.5.1. But you are right that when we open the app itself, it shows only the last update increment number (5.1).
