I love Evernote. In fact, after years of using this wonderful app, I became a Premium user. However, the inability to customize some of the keyboard shortcuts set by Evernote's team is inconsiderate and counterproductive. For instance, I don't need Evernote's "note sharing" shortcut 'CMD-FORWARD SLASH'. I use that specific shortcut to show and hide my clipboard manager. I emailed Evernote's support about the problem, and was surprised to receive a laconic response stating that some keyboard shortcuts cannot be edited. Evernote staff, please allow your users the freedom of choice to set their own keyboard shortcuts.
Great little app (I'm on 10.8.2). You can switch your default browser either using the menu bar icon (which conveniently displays the icon of your current browser), or by setting a global hotkey via the app's preferences. When you press that hotkey, an overlay window pops up, displaying icons of all your browsers - to make the overlay window disappear, you need to either select one of the browsers or click outside the window. There's also a thoughtful option to hide browsers identified incorrectly by the app (click the menu bar icon to display the browsers, then press ALT. Minus signs will appear beside the browsers; click the one you want to hide). Suggestion: it would be nice if the same global hotkey used to display the overlay window, could also be used to make that window disappear.
Hi MacUpdate team, the current Wineskin Winery version is 1.7. Here's the download page: http://wineskin.urgesoftware.com/tiki-index.php?page=Downloads
I (finally...) upgraded my late-2009 Mac Mini. I went straight from Snow Leopard (10.6.8) to Mountain Lion (10.8), and as far as I can tell, I'm not experiencing any problems with TotalFinder. I enjoy using it on ML just as I have on SL. What worked for me was: 1. First, I uninstalled TotalFinder on Snow Leopard BEFORE upgrading to Mountain Lion (I used TotalFinder's built-in uninstaller - it's in the dropdown menu of TotalFinder's menu bar icon); 2. I upgraded to Mountain Lion (while nervously crossing my fingers, biting my fingernails, and praying to a variety of obscure deities) ; 3. On Mountain Lion, I installed TotalFinder's newest version (which I previously downloaded from the developer's website). TotalFinder even remembered my license details, so I didn't have to reenter them. ***** P.S. And, no, I don't recall the *exact* obscure deities I was praying to while upgrading to ML.
Darn it. No Snow Leopard support? Too bad. Heard great things about Tweetbot and was eager to try it. Oh well, back to Echofon I guess. But I wish you good luck nonetheless, Tweetbot team.
This review is for PandaBar 1.2.5 (NOT 1.2.4), from the MAS. I saw PandaBar was back at the MAS, screamed with pure joy and bought the thing right away. Unlike other manubar Pandora apps, it supports Snow Leopard. THANK YOU, developer. The interface is amazing - elegant and minimal: the cute tiny Panda sits in my menubar, wearing cute tiny headphones that turn green when the radio's playing ;) When I click the panda, pops a small window with volume, pause/play, skip, thumbs up/down, cover pic, song/artist name... And lower right, I can click Stations (the window then changes to a compact Stations window; I click Player, lower left, to get back to the Player window). There's also a tiny preferences cogwheel, where you can enable/disable Growl notifications, choose to auto-play on start, or select a high-quality audio stream for Pandora One subscribers (I use free Pandora for now). I didn't encounter any problems playing Pandora, it played smoothly for me despite my slow Internet connection. In three words: VERY, VERY COOL.
Ahhhhh! I meant menubar of course that first time I typed the word, not manubar! "Menu bar", even. I wish we could edit our posts. Despite screening a post for typos, they do occur now and then.
Update, following 4-5 days of constant use: I love PandaBar even more. Especially after discovering the keyboard shortcuts (can't believe I missed them earlier!) - they're amazing.
You either love Dashboard or you hate it. I hate it. Passionately. I just *hate* to see it pop up whenever I press F12 by mistake. With Dashboardkiller, it's so easy to enable/disable the thing (I'm running Dashboardkiller on Snow Leopard). So, thanks!
There's a message at the Ayluro website thanking you for the good times. Too bad. I liked Corkboard.
Hey, cool. It's the same developer who created TotalFinder (which I absolutely love - can't imagine my Mac without it). I'm still on 10.6.8, and one of the reasons I'm refusing to switch is the absence of grid-spaces in Lion. I'll keep watching this thread. Great idea, and good luck! ;-)
It's a cute little app. And it can hide the Spotlight icon (at least on Snow Leopard; I don't know about Lion)! I wish it could hide a few more menu bar icons, though. Sent a request to the developer (you can send a request through the app), who very kindly offers this for free. ;)
Okay. And thank *you* for this wonderful app!
