Open Office is not a slam-dunk on compatibility with MS office, but for the price, it is a fantastic solution. Open Office sometimes changes the formatting when opening Excel documents, and the macro language is slightly different - which means that if you have macros written in Excel, they might not work when you open them with OO. Other than that, I like the compatibility with so many types of documents! If OO can't open it, I do not know what will! Also, it saved me from having to buy the latest version of MS office when I switched to Lion. OO is fully Lion compatibile, whereas my previous version of MS office is not.
Just an FYI, PDF merge is fully compatible with Lion (we have a free trial on our website so you can test). I was in contact with monteurtv, and unfortunately, she did not append her comment.
Thank you for OnyX - it is nice that you make this app free.
Chrome is one of my two favorite browsers (it competes well with Safari). It certainly faster than Safari, but the only thing it lacks (as far as I can tell) is good RSS support. Safari has these clean, parenthetical notifications that appear in your book marks bar. Chrome does not have this, nor does Chrome have an RSS reader. If Chrome had those two features, I'd give it a full 5 star rating. Obviously, there are Chrome extensions which allow some semblance of RSS reading - but upon installing those extensions, you need to consent to the fact that your private data could be shared with the developer...
I use Safari as my primary browser, on all of my computers, and I have been satisfied in every way (except I have one feature request). Websites just look better in Safari. Pages load quickly, and the application loads WAY faster than Firefox, and a tad faster than Chrome. I almost never have to use a different browser to view certain web content. Also, I find that Safari's development tools are really easy to use and understand - especially when I'm trying to debug a web page. One thing I like about Chrome (but I don't use this feature) is the bookmark sync feature. Yes, you can do this via (paid) .Mac subscription + Safari - but I really want to be able to do this via my own server (to keep bookmarks private). Otherwise, very pleased with this application.
Hey guys, why the negative smileys? My comment was poignant, helpful, and positive. Hundreds of other people have reviewed Safari with 5 star or 1 star ratings - and none get unhappy faces. What gives?
I tried to download this, and was redirected to some advertising site. Same thing for the Visit Developers Website Link. Too bad, because the screen-shot made this application look VERY promising...
Hey, guys... why the negative smileys? When you click the links, do you go to some website other than "Squeakyzipper.com?" To me, this doesn't seem like a legitimate post. Why "sad face" my comment?
I cannot seem to download this - it appears that the link is dead.
Ha, this app is great. The funny thing is that I just wrote the same kind of app (free) for PERL testing. I was getting tired of typing into terminal, and more importantly, I was tired of trying to format multi-line code in the terminal (it's just so hard to read). I went ahead and got it; it's only a buck, and it does just what it says it does. I had been relying on dreamweaver to edit my code - which works, but you have to keep uploading it to a server to test your code, which is time consuming.
First off: I have only used the demo version. The reason for that is the price seemed a little too high for me. BUT, having said that, Dragon Stop motion has a really clean interface, and I found the interface preferable to other stop motion software I have tried. The two big holdups for me on this app are: 1) The price (though I'd be willing to pay if it could overcome #2 below): 2) It does not work with my camera (which is NOT Dragon Stop Motions Fault); none of the stop motion programs I have tried will work with my camera because I don't have the proper connection - you need a camera that supports live view. It turns out that my camera comes with it's own live view software, which is nice, but it doesn't have any of the fantastic features of Dragon Stop motion. You find yourself doing onion skins manually, which works, but is really time consuming compared to this software. Dragon stop motion works great with the iSight, and other (lower resolution) cameras that I have. The app is great, and my main goal was to see if I could use my HD camera in a stop motion application.
This application is great! I previously used an application called Topofusion to more-or-less do the same thing. I really really like Topofusion: but it is a PC only program. I could certainly boot into Parallels and run topofusion no problem, but it turned out that this was the only program I was still reaching for an equivalent in the PC / Mac world. In other words: I no longer need to use Parallels. This actually saves a lot of time because having to boot two programs is rather time consuming, and a drag on RAM. This app is also a great value. Topofusion is $60, and indeed, it has more features than this program...but the ones I use the most are on myTracks - so that is really important. At $14, this app can't be beat. I'm very pleased. Thanks.
