The link downloads a BETA version of this software. The developer is in Nigeria. I have nothing against Nigeria but I have a lot of something against over a decade of non-stop Nigerian Internet scams. This software has NOT (yet) been approved by Apple for the Mac App Store, despite links at the developer's sites to the contrary. There's a line between FUD and being wisely paranoid. Hopefully, this will simply be a great addition to DropBox. But be aware and wary. I personally am going to wait until such time as Apple actually approves this software for the Mac App Store.
$60 upgrade price for "Previous owners of Roxio Toast, Popcorn, and Easy VHS to DVD for Mac". But I'm trying to find a reason to bother. Not much of an upgrade so far.
Very responsive, dedicated, crafty developer. Remarkably kewl interface. If only Google didn't make it such an ever changing PITA to grab videos from YouTube. Thanks to Soneé. Send the guy money as iTubeDownloader is better than most of the pay-for-it YouTube grabbers!
Oh dear: Reading their 'About Us' page, linked below, it's evident that 'they' are NOT masters of English grammar. Ahem! So, much as their grammar is superior to the average Chinese English speaker, it's NOT professional quality. Therefore, I cannot recommend this application. If 'they' can't use it to provide them with perfect grammar, you aren't going to either. That's a shame as I was very enthusiastic to try this out. Examples of bad grammar on their 'About Us' web page: - "We are a University of Cambridge spin-out, specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies. [Remove the comma. Also, the developers may have an association with the University of Cambridge, UK, but they are NOT native speakers of English. That is clear.] - "We are not a big team, at least not yet, but we want to deliver automated proofreading service differently:" [The correct word would be 'services'. The sentence is also incoherent with no connecting cause and effect.] - "Frankly speaking, no grammar checker on the market previously is worth your money." [This sentence has bad syntax. This is less confusing syntax: "no grammar checker previously on the market is worth your money"] - "It is beyond our imagination that some grammar checkers only update once or twice a year." [This sentence approaches incoherence. Replace 'that' with 'why'.] And so forth. Their grammar is better than 'ChingLish' but it's not proper English. Oh well. http://www.1checker.com/About/Companyinfo
OOPS: AudioMate 2.0.0 does NOT work on 10.7.5. It crashes when run. The Console crash notice is below. I'll try to send the full crash report to the developer. "7/26/14 11:43:17.876 AM ReportCrash: com.apple.message.domain: com.apple.crashreporter.writereport.crash com.apple.message.signature: AudioMate com.apple.message.signature2: com.troikalabs.AudioMate ||| 2.0 (1) com.apple.message.signature3: 78CB6B915C4E690797E361E21FE28C32 com.apple.message.result: NO com.apple.message.summarize: YES
AudioMate 2.0.2 is now available at the developer's website. It's running fine on OS X 10.7.5 Lion!
Regarding system notifications, the developer points out: "Note: This functionality requires Growl when using Mac OS X 10.7." I don't know why the demo video isn't playing here at MU. You can watch it on the developer's home page.
I reloaded this page and tried again: Now the video plays fine! No doubt the Internet is haunted. ;-)
Objective Development (the developer) quickly pushed out v3.3.4 of Little Snitch today. Therefore, the link to v3.3.3 is dead. Use this link for the latest version: http://www.obdev.at/products/littlesnitch/download.html
The current version of WebCode is 1.1.2, released July 11, 2014.
REQUIREMENTS: "Intaglio requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 (i.e., Panther) or later. Some features require 10.4." - Purgatory Design (developers of Intaglio). IOW: NOT OS X 10.8. This page is wrong. I personally have it working perfectly on 10.7.5.
Please Note! Version 1.2.2 is for OS X 10.8 onwards ONLY. It will bomb on older versions of OS X. If you have 10.6 or 10.7, you want version 1.1 which is available at the developer's downloads page: http://www.clementine-player.org/downloads
