Looks like the largest waste of money ever. I am not going to waste my time downloading this but all of the "toggles" can be accomplished with short applescripts. Matching icons from deviantart will be just as nice or nicer so I really do not see spending $10 on this. Google the applescripts. They are so basic that you will find 10 different ways to accomplish each action. Just my opinion but PLEASE google before buying and spend your money on software which the developer actually spent time making. Cheers.

Convenience is always a good reason to buy something. Not having the technical skill to perform a task is another. Lacking the technical skills to create a product that someone has already designed is a third. Being skilled and technically adept but too busy to take the time is a fourth reason people buy stuff. And supporting creativity and productivity, in general, in the hopes of encouraging greatness is a fifth.

You want more reasons why people spend money? Then ask them, rather than put the developer down for offering something that might be useful. Of course, any buyer of any product or service has to evaluate the price in relation to the convenience or utilitarian factors. That's only called being a good shopper.

If this particular product is priced too highly for the service it provides, then either don't buy it, or wait until its price comes down. The law of supply and will kick in, eventually.

In the case of this software (and several others in its class), it often gets included in "Pay What You Want" bundles from Paddle.com, where you can pick it up—along with others small, one-trick ponies—at a great bargain amounting to a small fraction of its original price. If any item in the bundle serves you, you're a winner! If none, then you cheaply eliminated minor utilities that you can live without.

Is this so hard to figure out?

Or must the nerdier, geekier, technical show-offs among us constantly write reviews and comments about products that they claim they can make themselves, but don't want to stoop so low as to actually take a chance in the free marketplace of ideas to see if their products will be more acceptable than their condescending put-downs.

Next time, before raking some poor independent software developer over the coals with one of your negative swipes for taking the chance that so many here lack the courage to take, imagine that it is you who spent your time and energy developing a product—almost any product—to see how it would get received in the marketplace. Would you like your baby trampled before it can walk? Most likely, your ego would barely recover.

If MacUpdate members would actually try writing a thoughtful review that focussed on features and benefits of a product, or if members offered an intelligent insight that was as valuable as some of the products they mercilessly trash without sufficient reason, the reviews features of this website would be a lot more useful than it has turned into over the years.

I want to see substantive reviews. I want to read intelligent comments. When I come here, I hope—usually in vain—to find reviews that address one thing and one thing only:

* Is this product worth buying and / or using?

In trying to determine that, I hope to learn from others who have actually used the product certain things, like:

* Does it perform the task for which it is designed?

* What other similar or competing products do the same thing—either better or worse?

* How is this product better, different, or more valuable than those products?

* Is the product priced appropriately for what it does, or is it outrageously over-priced?

As far as dealing with price, I wish everyone who thinks he/she is entitled to free software forever would hold their tongue for as long as they can go without eating, or at least as long until they learn once and for all that there is no free lunch. Ideally, when they start to squirm out of hunger, maybe they will realize that they are not so entitled to free software or free lunches after all.

Others have bills to pay, too. Give them the respect for actually having produced something and asking you to support their efforts in exchange for currency. That's how the world works.

If someone gives you something for free, they do so out of their own generosity, not because you deserve it. Usually you don't, because free advice from cheap bastards is about as useful as legacy PC software on a modern Mac. It's incompatible with an evolving marketplace of ideas and commerce.

Fast Toggle this lesson over. I'm tired of seeing things spin 'round in a circle here. Let's move ahead, yes?
