The download link is incorrect. The link from the developer's page is http://www.paisible.fr/downloads/BOF.dmg. Speaking of which, the link for the developer's site should probably go to http://www.paisible.fr/le-breviaire-dorthographe-francaise.php. Both of the current links go to 404 error pages.

Super programme! Un dictionnaire manque cruellement cependant (J'ai la version en anglais de Apple Dictionary mais pas la version francaise).

Great app! It lacks a dictionary though, for anyone whose installed Apple Dictionary is the English version one.

Merveilleux outil pour ceux qui aiment la langue française. Les développeurs naviguent à contrecourant dans une mer anglophone, là où il y a si peu de règles à respecter, et où, en apposant, tel un lego, les mots les uns après les autres, on pense construire du sens...

This is more of a grammer reference than a teaching tool for French - i.e. it assumes you know French already but need to check something.

Whereas I genuinely appreciate the time and trouble a developer does for this, it seems odd that one would already have to be fluent in French in order to understand a program that is supposed to assist with becoming fluent in French.

Well, I think you miss the point. Nobody in the world speaks French perfectly, especially not the French! It is a language that has so many difficulties and pitfalls, that even most French people don't speak it perfectly and sometimes cannot be sure of which gender a rarely used word belongs to. This program is aimed at French people, yes, maybe! And that's why it's extremely useful. You would rather have to question, why are 99 percent of the WWW's websites in English, while we still live in a world where English isn't everybody's mother tongue. There are tons of websites online that can help you with learning the basics of any language, but as usual with internet knowledge it is either limited, or remains on the surface of things. For once a programs addresses unknown issues and difficulties that most people don't care or don't know about.

Or, again, why is the Apple Dictionary, full of English words, in English? It is common for a reference work to be written in the language it references.

Réponse: à force de consulter BOF bien sûr! NB: Ce logiciel est basé sur la version originale du BOF pour Windows de Marc Goldstein.
