I find this app very useful with many options.
However it constantly takes 15-17% of CPU.
Why so much when it's not checking Webpages?
It takes about 50% when checking.
Thats way too much.
I know my iBook G3 800 with OSX 10.4.6 is old but other apps don't take that much CPU.
So why?

It would be useful if Subscriber supported Growl as a notification method.

Supporting standard keystrokes like Cmd-Left in the text entry field would be nice, too :)

More worryingly, what is amber.x-dns.com? Subscriber tries to connect to this at startup - probably just a version check (but there's no option to disable this, and there should be). If you deny connections to this address, email notifications don't work. In fact, Subscriber doesn't even try to connect to my mail server. Is it trying to send email via x-dns.com, and if so: why, and what guarantee do we have that our email addresses aren't being harvested? It doesn't inspire confidence :(

I use this daily. I have found it to be accurate, very reliable, and trouble free.

Saw this application I thought I'd give it a try. However, the app tends to crash when I go to a internal ASP page repeatedly.

ok new review, due to the newer version... it works well, if a little less than intuitive to use in some aspects such as setting the time interval... but not a bad app at all and does work well once you get the hang of it.

The time interval needs to be adjustable, currently there is only one time interval which only allows for checking every hour...

We think we've reproduced the problem: it now appears to affect only URLs Pasted into Subscriber from the Clipboard - drag and drop from the address bar of a browser works correctly on our systems.

We'd be grateful if you could contact us at support@charcoaldesign.co.uk so that we can make sure we're seeing the same problem you are.

yes, that is the issue: copy and paste does not work but drag 'n drop does... something of a shortcoming there.

and it is, to my mind, necessary to have an option so that the user can set the time interval to, say, check a site every minute. sounds like overkill, checking a site every minute? well, no, that is what i need.

thanks!
