Too little, too late. This is pretty useless on the Mac, there are far better (and free) tools on Mac OS X after so many years. And for most purposes, the included Disk Utility is enough.

I've used the windows version of this, and it is a bloated dog of a thing. Thankfully, the Mac version is simple and does its task well. This is the only app I know of to easily mount cue/flac and cue/ape files. I have my CDs stored as lossless images so this app is great for mounting them.

A minor annoyance is the inability to mount anything with an ISRC field in the cue file, and inability to mount cue's with tracks in separate files.

A MAJOR annoyance, and the reason I'm contemplating not buying this and dumping it totally, is that it has some highly suspect privacy behaviour. Little Snitch has detected it attempting to open connections to resources.web-search-home.com - what the hell is this?

It mounts cues with ISRC and multiple tracks on OS X fine for me - maybe you need contact support and ask what is going on.

Also web-search-home.com is standard URL used by DAEMON Tools to check for updates. It is used on Windows too. So I think there is nothing to worry about.

This says it's "expired" on launch and won't run. There's a newer version on the company website.

DAEMON Tools Lite for Mac appears to install files in directories in /usr

This may being done in part by DAEMONToolsPrivilegedHelperLoader.app (DAEMONToolsVirtualSCSIBus.kext may also be a factor) and this may also bepart of source of "Helper tool" errors that prevent DAEMON Tools Lite for Mac from working as promised.

You are wrong - it installs nothing in /usr.

If the developer wants to make this useful for OS X users to mount things, perhaps consider disc images files that users have to boot into Mac OS 9 to mount as read/write images - like the ShrinkWrap disc image file format originally created by Chad Magendanz...

DAEMON Tool was as good disc image mounter on Windows, until it start to bundle WhenU AD-ware and force users to install the search bar tool. When the Windows 7 was released, the old version of DAEMON Tool was also the source of many crashes on my machine. So I switched to MagicDisk since 2010.

On the Mac platform, I don't see it necessary to install such tool. Mac users get no problem with ISO, and you can also handle APE and CUE will with Cog and XLD. Disc images created with other 3rd party clone tool are primarily used for personal backup; they're seldom "released" to public.

"Seldom" doesn't mean "never" ;)
My friend has a lot of old .nrg images with some useful for him data backups on external hdd. And after the day he bought MacBook Air he spend some hours to get data to his Air through the Windows-based computer.
Today I can recommend him more plain solution ))

When I first saw the comment by alekskiss, I thought it was the developer who gave his or her app 5 stars themselves. Apparently, my suspicion is correct if you see this guy's other comments talking like the developer. That's pretty cheesy.
