I am searching for a new calendar app and I like many of the features on your app and have included it in the final handful of what seems like hundreds of calendar apps that are available. I have checked the pages on your website and the itunes store, and maybe the answer is there but I don't see it - I want to see a week at a glance. Is this feature available?
The link to the dev site says the app is discontinued and is replaced by "MedCoach" from "GreatCall". The link leads to a page where one can purchase a jitterbug phone and then an app from the jitterbug app store called "Medication Reminder" for the mere sum of $10.00 per month. Under the what's new section above it should say discontinued.
I am not usually a cynical or suspicious person by nature. However, when I see that the positive comments/reviews for the entire year of 2010 are from people who apparently signed up just to leave this single review, never to be heard from again, nor ever downloading anything, I do become suspicious. I think MacUpdate should have feature for posts (or apps) to be tagged as suspicious or potentially fraudule. Even if this feature could only be used by paying members, I would be willing to pay for a membership for such a use. Part of the reason I use MacUpdate is to save myself time and money by relying on the research and judgment of others. It doesn't do me much good if the "others" are insincere or fraudulent posters. How many times have you looked at the same page or posts more than once and thought, "oh yeah, I remember now, this one is bogus"? If you're like me, plenty. Think of the time savings if it were somehow flagged so you wouldn't have to give this a second look. Am I the only one who thinks like this?
Admittly I am viewing this page on the tiny screen of an iPod but no matter how much I zoom in or out I do not see a "details" button as referenced in the last paragraph - "Click the details button below for more information and screenshots." On the Dev website there are 4 very nice screenshots. I see that they have a second app "Dossier". Both of these appear to have been recently upgraded after a period of inactivity, and have a new blog in place. Both also seem reasonably priced, but seem so similar that it is not clear (to me at least) what the primary differences are in the usage of these two apps, and if they are designed to serve the same purpose from different perspectives; or is one intended to serve a different function .
You are really on the ball Warren, that was fast!
Even though only PPC is specified, this does work on Intel Macs. However it is quite dated and the dev appears to only be active on his German blog. There are so many alternatives this likely is not worth the time it takes to download (and subsequently detele) it.
This is a good aid for practicing the art of relaxation & meditation, or just giving yourself a timeout from the kids, or the boss. The website has about 25 or so environments that can be purchased in addition to the 26 in this package. You can see previews of these on their website. As a chronic pain sufferer I find that this is good for practicing relaxation, self hypnosis, meditation, etc. The visuals are beautiful and the corresponding sounds are realistic. There are evenings when I would much rather have this in the background than the TV (or maybe even play this on the TV). It is also a good tool for those who need to control breathing (ie emphysema). The program leaves a small icon on the menu bar, which gives the option of: Turn on/off, Preferences, Open Scene Store, & Hide Desktop Icons. When off it uses 3% of system resources, and when on uses 16%, which I suppose is ok because theoretically you would not be using this simultaneously with other programs. There is also an "Automatic Serenity" feature when can be set up to remind you to take a break; it can turn on the program at a specific time for a specific period. For anyone who needs to add serenity to their life, this is a worthwhile program. Feature Suggestion: Although in preferences you can choose the cycling period for the various scenes, I would like to see a choice in the menu bar to advance to the next scene, if for some reason, I'm not in the mood for the one that is playing.
This application does exactly what it says. Every time I hit "Command N" when the finder is open, I've had to move the window. Now I can have every new window open not only in the exact location, but also at the exact size that I want. There are probably lots of other ways to do this, but this is what I found first. It doesn't get any easier than this.
