Can anybody please confirm this app is Mavericks compatible?

Or is DomainBrain abandoned already? (last update was in Dezember 2010)

Still waiting for a reply of the developer and can't find any information on the developers/application website.

In case the developer is reading the comments/reviews here on MU: You might want to check your "Tips & Tricks" section in your forums – it's getting out of control: over 2k comments in polish with links to pirated files and file sharing/torrent sites! X-D

just a quick heads up:

I received a reply from the developer just a minute ago – DomainBrain seems to work well in Mavericks and updates & additional features are planned too! :-)

Cheers,
Dan

I'm using mine with Mavericks just fine. I'm glad that the dev hasn't completely given up on it.

nearly perfect but don't expect any bugs to get fixed under less than 18 months. Have asked several times to get it fixed. hopeless and empty promises is all you'll get.

Works exactly as advertised. Stable, rather nice interface. Custom data fields are very helpful to customize to your needs.
Lacks 1 feature to get 5 stars :Smart folders !

does it allow syncing via drop box or has a iPhone iPad app which it syncs with?

I have just bought this on offer through Maczot. It does exactly what it needs to as far as I am concerned, keeps all my clients web info in one place, the ability to add custom fields and tables makes it very versatile. the time saved hunting for data is well worth the price. for the amount of times I use the whois, and lets face it how often do you use the whois when you have already registered a domain anyway.

Well laid out, now an iphone version that syncs with the main app would be icing on top.

A very basic three-pane app, and with no search function. All it does is scrape the whois. Pretty steep price for that.

It's clear you didn't do any more than read the description, if that. I agree it needs a search function, but the app does a great job of helping you organize all of the information regarding your domains. Pulling in WHOIS information is just one feature (which, IMO, needs improvement).

By default, you can store FTP/WebDAV, Database, CMS, Hosting, Billing and Registrar information; the app offers customer categories (data types) to enable you to store much more information. And it syncs domain expiration dates with iCal.

I have a business in website development and run the servers that host them. This app has proven to be invaluable to me. I have it open all the time. The iCal syncing keeps me updated on when domains will be expiring so that I can remind my clients to renew. It's well worth the $30 for what it does and it's very customizable.

Nice little app. $30 is a bit step though.

I like the app, because it allows me to keep track of *all* of the information related to my sites (unlike other similar apps that fail to track it all). The interface is clean and easy to use. I like the live URLs for each of the entries and the fields for username and password for each service.

However, I have one major problem with it:

There's no sync to iCal for expiring domains.

Sync to iCal and/or a smart folder for expiring domains is essential for an app that tracks that data. (Smart folders is a good idea in any case.)

A couple minor nits:

- The scrolling list of domains could be made larger, or at least have a preference for small/large icons and text
- Databases: it's not unusual to have multiple databases for a site, but Domain Brain only tracks one. Would like to see some facility for multiple entries here
- Passwords are visible once the app is open. Should have password hiding at the field level (perhaps integration with the Keychain)
- Tracked WHOIS info is sparse. Would like to see additional data pulled in, like Registrar and Creation Date, perhaps Registrant info

The nits wouldn't keep me from buying the app, but without some facility for identifying expiring domains, well, that's a deal-breaker.

for some odd reason this app does not include domain creation date?!!! not sure if it captures all the whois info and types of domains either.

I still prefer to use Domain Tracker but I have a major problem w/ the older DomainTracker cuz I can't reach the develope so please: Can anyone please help me with HOW to DECODE or DECRYPT the domain tracker notes? i.e. How to turn off the database notes encryption feature cuz even tho I don't have a password and as far as I know I never told it to encrypt.....

I don't know how it happened but now all the notes are now in some form of a string of mainly numbers and letters, like this but longer: c8864886984846c666468618284668448482048666c

Is there a way to figure out how to do that? please?

I really like(d) this little app -- it's got some great features needed by mac domain owners/webmasters something in domaintracker somehow causes the notes to encrypt or encode as noted above (it's a long string of numbers and a little text) but I can't figure out how to undo that feature and now we also can't get any kind of response from the developer -- mark[a]colovo.com even tho we bought it several yrs back.

Any suggestions from any who know what the encoding/encrypting feature of domain tracker does and how to unencode/decode/unencrypt/decrypt would be GREATLY APPRECIATED for sure. anyone who has previously figured out how to do it with success?

thank you for taking the time to read; hope someone can help.

As I noted in my review, the domain creation date is not one of the registrar fields that is tracked. Not sure what your comments add to it.

And any support for Domain Tracker won't be found by posting comments here. That product, and indeed the developer's site, appears to be defunct. Probably time to move on.

This does keep me from buying. :(

@reledev: Please note that my original review is -- at this moment -- over two years old and is relevant only to the version I reviewed. Version 2 does indeed allow tracking multiple databases; in fact, the Category Manager allows multiple instances of any category.
