Features are sufficient for my present needs but more are to come and the author is very responsive.

The trial will not open - crashes immediately and repeatedly (10.7.3, Mac Pro)
Be interesting to see what this does when it opens.

Not working on MBP 2011 with 10.7.2 too


I had no problem with my iMac running OS 10.7.4 and this is really a nice app. I ended to buy it even if it is slightly overpriced. I'm testing and will soon open a blog to post my experience.
