Media Indexer is a simple and easy to use catalog app with a small footprint and a clean interface. Price and feature fit my needs perfectly.

Version 2.4 indexes fine on Leopard (10.5.1) but every time an index is selected, the name is highlighted automatically and the app crashes instantly.

Also, Media Indexer won't remember window size and position, at each launch it reverse back to default. It would also be nice if we could change the size of the icons and text in the sidebar.

works for me, I like that it's "Universal", created Index-file is searched by Spotlight (so you find files on unmounted Volumes, which I find very important), it's fast, takes little space to store Information (could maybe get an option to collect preview of media files)

The developer site says "Try Media Indexer for free now! Click here to download Media Indexer PR2." Is this a beta of a commercial product? If so, I don't consider that the same as "free."

It means TRY for FREE. It's opposite of buy-before-you-try. Typical shareware marketing...


I could have sworn it said "License: Free" on the MacUpdate page. That is not an accurate description of shareware, even if what you are downloading is a free try-before-you-buy. I see the MacUpdate page now says "License: Shareware", so either it was changed or I misread it the first time, in which case I apologize.

Even so, at this moment, I can't find anything on the developer site about buying, only about trying. I don't like that kind of omission. Why wouldn't a shareware author say something about pricing? If the price is still being decided, why not say so? Why would I download an app if I don't know whether I'll want to pay the price for it?

At least the developer's other product pages do mention price, but even so they seem to want to skirt the issue. They say "Register Now" instead of "Buy", and the price is mentioned way down in the corner. Charging money for software is nothing to be ashamed of, certainly not when the prices seem reasonable.


P.S. I found an earlier entry in my NetNewsWire history, and it did say "Free" originally. I am glad the MacUpdate page was updated to accurately describe the software.

About the price of this software.

This is a pre-release version. It is free, really. You are NOT going to be asked for money, because, well, it is not 100% finished yet, and selling pre-release sofware is a bad habit :)

If the users input is encouraging, the development will probably lead to the release of a shareware product, but don't worry, you will be warned by the time :)

Hoping this clears the issues with this software... And don't forget to fill the survey - it's always important to get user input !



I can understand being in the kind of limbo state -- I've been there myself. I would have called it "Beta" on the MacUpdate page rather than "Shareware," but that's just me.
