Slow. I never upgrade to a .0 release, or .1 either, but I installed Mavericks so I could run OmniWeb 6a and now Hulu & Netflix stutter, simple things in apps take much longer than they did in ML. Also I get a crash alert every time I do something in Finder. Nice features but poor implementation.
So Coppertino wants a comment from you, the user, BEFORE you use the radio feature, I guess they are screening potential buyers for worthiness or something. Bad idea. Uhm, I just wanted to preview the radio player but now I’m having second thoughts because of having to jump through hoops to see it, or maybe to hear it, or maybe both I don’t know but this seems a little excessive just to preview a paid feature most developers let the feature do the talking and then ask for input afterwards so I’m not sure how I’m supposed to have a comment on a feature that I have not seen yet, or heard yet so that makes it kind of difficult and then I wonder if previewing a feature is this involved what sort of things will I have to do in the future if I use this app, because I’m used to launching an app, using said app, and then closing the very same app, will I have to check in every time I use the radio feature or will it be seamless, I can’t say but I’m leaning toward the former so I hope you find this comment to your liking and let me preview the radio feature because I just don’t know what I will do if you do not find me worthy of your app’s features and then my life would be over so I would have to find a very tall mountain peak to climb up so that I could then fall down it to ease the pain of not being worthy, but is there Vox radio in heaven I don’t know if there is but the bigger question is will I even go to Heaven or will I go to Hell, and is Vox in Hell set to listen to Englebert Humperdink exclusively because that would surely fit the definition of eternal damnation, but what if there is no Heaven or Hell and I am reincarnated as a Hindu will I be able to listen to Vox radio in India if you are Indian but you are not in India do you become an Outdian, these are the questions my mind asks in the middle of the night when I cannot sleep because the couch cushions move beneath me, but not in a good way like a lover would do, no the cushions move as if they are trying to get away from me which hurts my feelings and makes me cry and now I have to share my shame with the world in the hope that the Vox developers will find me worthy of their radio service, I can only wait and see but I don’t think I can hold my breath that long so I just might die in my quest for Vox radio so if I do die will you please say something nice about me on Vox radio and maybe I’ll hear it in Heaven, or better yet have Englebert Humperdink sing something nice about me so that if I happen to be in Hell I will hear it and know that someone cared enough to go to the trouble of contacting Englebert Humperdink and talking him into singing something nice about me, that is if Englebert Humperdink is still alive because I really don’t know I haven’t heard his name mentioned in a really long time and that is very sad how we forget those who have passed on and their legacy fades with time, just think how many wonderful people have died that we know nothing of because their memory died with their family, friends, and loved ones never to be sung again it is truly a tragedy but maybe if Vox lets everyone use their radio then people can sing the praises of souls gone by for eternity and no one will ever have to be forgotten again wouldn’t that be swell? k thx, bye
Well this is strange. In 10.8 iCalViewer ran, but did not ‘see’ my calendars so nothing showed up on the desktop. Now I’ve installed 10.9 and it works just like it used to in 10.6. I hope a future update doesn’t break it, it sure is nice to have it back. Good thing I didn’t uninstall it!
This is my new favorite Mahjong solitaire game having banished Ivory to the trash along with my other Java apps. Lots of layouts, tile sets, beautiful graphics, level editor, etc… all at a reasonable price.
I made a concerted effort to use Quicksilver but it just doesn't work for the way I think, and I don't care to change to suit it. In my mind the shortcut for Address Book would be "ab" but Quicksilver wants "ad" and it took a LOT of repetition to get it to understand my shortcuts and some of them it would not learn no matter how many times I repeated it. Probably a great app if it works the way you think, but if you're like me you might want to try something else.
I don't know if it was the upgrade from 10.6 to 10.8, or going from 1.0.17 to 1.0.19 but I no longer have to wiggle my mouse or change the screen/energy saver to keep my system awake while MPlayerX is playing. Better picture than even the shareware Movist, great file format support, great options.
So, I downloaded and installed Pando Calendar. It put up a small calendar showing the current month in the lower-left part of my screen without any indication of the current day or future events. Not terribly helpful for me as I am looking for something that will show upcoming events on the desktop so I don't miss them, because I will forget to check Calendar every day. Pando does not help me out in this regard.
The only request I have would be the ability to set more than one alarm for any event like Apple's Calendar does. I like an alarm 1-3 days ahead AND an alarm an hour or two before the event. Other than that it is very convenient.
I loved, and lived by, iCalViewer. It still 'runs' in 10.8.5, but it doesn't see any of my Apple calendars, it only sees my Google calendar which is blank anyway. Sadly that is still better than what TimeWorks does, which is nothing. Unless crashing counts as something. TW doesn't stay running long enough to even see the UI, that's assuming it has a UI because I wouldn't know. As is I wouldn't keep it on my Mac if it were free, which it isn't. DateLine seems to be the next best thing but I miss iCalViewer's "finish line" approach to showing appointments, meetings, etc…
PS: The above download link yields v1.2.7, not v1.2.6. Perhaps v1.2.6 works great but I will never know.
Sigh, another dead download link with a dead developer link to boot. I miss iCal Viewer, it was my bread & butter for tracking obligations.
