About the only thing I can find wrong with this is the fact that the developer seems to think that OS X still comes with Front Row on a "Brand New Mac" lol

Oh My God! Thank you, thank you for updating this most essential app. I've had ok results with the old version on 10.8 but this is just awesome. I know you have a pro product and I thought maintenance of this lite version was dead. I'm so happy to find out otherwise.

Hmm review, what can I say, it does exactly what it says and does it well and you can't beat the price. 5 stars all the way!

Despite I managed to use it for a while, I won't choose it in for the longterm using because it's raw: it crashes and seems to be made in a rush.

Version 1.0.1 sounds controversial. I am sure it's still the 'beta' under 1.

It does exactly what it says on the tin - and for free. Great stuff!
