Synergy Advance is a powerful iTunes accessory written from scratch to take advantage of the technologies behind Apple's new Tiger operating system (although it also runs on Panther). The core module provides a powerful hot key engine, Global Menu, and Growl integration, and works seamlessly alongside Synergy Classic. Future preview releases will provide some of the functionality already available in Synergy Classic as well as new features enabled by the new architecture.

Oh, here are the stars for the previous comment. Works pretty well, I bought it as a replacement for the (free) hotkey functionality of Quicksilver. I still use this instead, but only because I'm too lazy to look for alternatives. It works well enough, but every once in a while goes crazy and freezes. And has bare-bones functionality. And none of the "modules" that were promised long ago. Did someone say stagnant?

Ever since upgrading to Leopard it doesn't work at all! Hooray for crap software!

I paid faithfully for this app more than a year ago, and don't think I've seen a single release since then. Wow. One of the few pieces of software I'd ADVOCATE pirating. Just cause I don't think the money will go to any use. Prove me wrong?

Almost a year and we're waiting on the .5 beta release. This app is in development almost as long as vista/longhorn was. I hope the dev will have a final version out by this time next year or he'd get overrun by coverstura.

While I was critical of the app before since it was such a long time since it was last updated but it's finally moving and I congratulate the author on a fine job of the .4b3 version. I can't wait to see what they have in store for the final version. I just hope I don't have to wait for another year.

Now I've been using synergy for years, how long I can't remember but when synergy advance came out I thought it looked promising. But I think the development of it is stalled since there have been no updates since july of 05 and when his road map had said that it would have been completed in Nov of 05. I emailed the developer in the middle of Jan and he said a new release version was coming out soon after a maintence release of synergy but it hasn't come out yet over a month later.

I have paid for both synergy and synergy advance and I would buy another license for synergy advance if it would encourage the developer to continue developing but now I have serous doubts about it. Although menuet has come out and I like their product I would prefer to have synergy advance released to a 1.0 version and out of beta testing.

Here's to hoping

I give it one star since every link on the home page is broken and I can't even download it. And because I could have used it tonight at work.

Looks interesting. Now that I can hide the dock icon, I may have to shell out for the new version. Makes sense that he charges for something that requires recoding from the ground up, and, you know, it's a whole 10 bucks. That's what, maybe the cost of a terrible Britney Spears CD? Or lunch? Or a cheap paperback book. Or a quarter of a big SUV's gas tank. I could go on. For those of you complaining about the cost of the advance version, when was the last time you payed 10 bucks for something that you got this much use out of?

Besides, it's not like the guy is forcing you to upgrade; Synergy Classic works wonderfully, as I can attest to right now.

I just noticed he's pushing for users to buy Synergy Classic AND Advance with no upgrade path. Thanks for screwing your old customers Wincent! I'm gone.

There is a discount on Advance for Classic Synergy users.

Why should we pay for something twice? This isn't the pinnacle of market research, wincent, it's common sense to not ditch your previous customers if you get too greedy. Mac market not raking it in enough for you? Go work for MS, they'll enjoy your perspective towards your customers. Not worth the initial $10 hes asking for with a reputation like his.

I paid for Synergy Classic when it got good enough to deserve it. I'll follow the same routine for Advance.
