properVOLUME ... Sometimes you find a little app that does one thing so well that it makes doing the simplest things a pleasure instead of a chore. properVOLUME is one of those.

Functionally, it's exactly what Apple should have included with OS X from the start. I won't even try to catalog my various frustrations with the stock Sound preference pane. The number of clicks and screens that you have to go back and forth between in there just to set up both input and output volumes is ridiculous. And worse than that, you can't do anything to a given audio device without first making that device the default system input or more...

What's New

Version 1.1.3:
  • Improved start at login compatibility with OS X 10.8.2

FOR FREE, PTHvolume (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/26071/pthvolume) does all of this (and more, including individual hotkeys for each device, excluding devices you don't use from the list, etc.) This should probably see what the market actually needs before creating redundant apps and then asking people to pay for them. I'm sure the talent is there, but there's no point wasting it.

Typo: I meant "This developer should" not "This should".

I agree that Apple's continuing destruction of the Mac interface makes an app like this very handy, but it has two deal-killing FAILS:

1. Minimum 10.7 requirement: Lion trashes even more of OS X's user friendly features, so it's ironic that properVOLUME supports that decline by excluding 10.6.

2. Available only through the App Store: The App Store is part of the problem, so here again, it's ironic that an app whose avowed purpose is to restore some of the ever-diminishing user control would participate in App Store folly.

Maybe I'll try this app when I'm forced to "upgrade" to Lion, but until then, it's useless for me.
