I think this software is abandoned. I have used it throughout the Mavericks update but it has recently started to crash on startup. No update in a year and a half and nothing on the blog since 2012...
Developer, if I am wrong, do you intend on updating this app in 2014?

Beautiful software design; the interface is extremely intuitive, and it has room for everything you need for your licenses, such as file attachments, vendor information (site and contact information), your license information (naturally), purchase date and price, as well as a "notes" area for each license where you can type anything you want.

It's absolutely brilliant, and I selected it after comparing it to ALL other license managers out there. This is the one to get! Feature-complete, beautiful and stable.

I've suggested some improvements to backup frequency and icon handling which should lead to databases that are a fraction of the current size, and much more granular updates. When that comes out, this already near-perfect application will be even better.

If you have a lot of licenses to manage, then you need this application! It's as simple as that!

with the 1.8 update, the application launches MUCH faster, making an already useful app more enjoyable.

I bought this one to help me remember the reg info and help me remember what tools I have already.

the important thing here is that it should be able to import directly from Mac-update so that wouldn't have to write everything inn myself every time !

well...
! IT DOES NOT WORK ! simple as that
i accept the loss of 20 bucks and are back to my 1password where i have all my important stuff, i do have to write everything inn by hand but then its there reliable and safe

Is this a real review? Because it looks fishy.

Support answers quickly, as other people here will attest to as well.

As for one-click import of purchase information from MacUpdate, I've never used the feature, but you claim that it does not work.

Well, I went into my purchase history at MacUpdate, selected a program, and clicked the "Add to LicenseKeeper" button. Voila, it was added to LicenseKeeper.

None of your criticisms are true. Period.

Well look in the trouble shooting section for this soft
and you will see that there is still no answer in there !!

next off it will still do nothing on my IMAC / or any of the MBP we use here !!

1.Password has become my choice. Thats It

Oh now I see what you've done. You've posted the problem in the "Troubleshooting" tab here on MacUpdate.com. That's not right. You want to reach the developer? Then email them. They are a 2 man operation with busy, regular lives, but they respond to me within one day.

As for your import issues, I still don't believe that. Go into any of your receipts here on MacUpdate, and click the "Add to LicenseKeeper" button. MacUpdate will send you a file into your downloads folder. Click this file one time and all the purchase information will be added to LicenseKeeper automatically. This includes the price, date, email used, vendor, and things like that.

What exactly is not working? Maybe you clicked the link but never clicked the file it downloaded to your computer? That's required in order to import the data. The file that MacUpdate sends you is an information bundle that you must open to store it in LicenseKeeper.

i've only used LicenseKeeper to grab the information for one piece of software so far (TotalFinder), and i like the concept a lot. LicenseKeeper got the licensed name wrong - it appears to have drawn my name from the To: field of the email rather than actually scanning the body of the email for the name associated with the license, which was not my name, but "MacUpdatePromo Somethingorother," so i was confused for a while as to why TotalFinder wasn't accepting my new license information, and i had to go look at the email in order to enter the license information that TotalFinder expected...so in this case LicenseKeeper saved me less time and effort than it should have. but in the end i got the information entered into TotalFinder correctly, and corrected it in LicenseKeeper, and the whole process was still pretty quick. when the LicenseKeeper people get the quirks worked out this will be an extremely handy piece of software.

hmm. well, actually, i'm starting to think LicenseKeeper is kinda weak now. it doesn't do nearly as much as i thought. i thought i could select a product in LicenseKeeper and click "Attach Email" and LK would scan all my emails and find any related to that product and suck the license information into itself...but it doesn't. i have to do a search for the email message myself, and then drag and drop that email into LicenseKeeper, which saves me considerably less time and effort than i thought LicenseKeeper was supposed to. between the mistakes it makes and the work i'm required to do to get information into LicenseKeeper, i'm beginning to wonder whether this app really makes anything that much easier.

You're using it incorrectly. Its purpose is to allow you safe, permanent storage for all your license information, in one central place. No need to keep old emails. No need to store information in some archaic folder structure. Just dump all license files and emails into LicenseKeeper and it's saved forever and allows you to clear up your mailbox. It's a fantastic program. Next time you need to look up your license information? Simply start LicenseKeeper and there it is, right at your fingertips.

Doesn't 1Password already do this, or not? Just asking.

not quite - 1Password, like SafePlace and a bunch of other info-keeping software, will hang onto this information for you, but it requires you to enter the data into it manually, while LicenseKeeper gathers the information itself from LicenseKeeper files and emails. it basically makes the process of getting the information *into* LicenseKeeper far easier than getting it into 1Password or SafePlace or whatever. and Dear Whomever Gave Jah's Question a -1: you're an idiot. it was a QUESTION. jeez.
