At A Glance

If you find OS X's built-in spell-checker and thesaurus good enough, you have no need for Spell Catcher X. But if you spend the majority of your computer time typing words, Spell Catcher X is a great addition to your toolkit. Be forewarned, though: it will take some time to master its interface. If you're willing to put in the effort, Spell Catcher X has much to offer.
