Too much expensive, it has unique implementations and a very complete list of codecs, but it's full of bugs, cluster encoding very rarely works, windows version crashes all the time, some times don't even start up. And the lack of support is amazing, The company sold Episode 6 as Snow Leopard compatible, then on the updates changed the system requirements of the installer for OS X 10.7 but it can be installed correctly on Mac OS X if you change the minimum requirements plist of the installer. At least they should support the Snow Leopard until version 6 bugs were fixed!

Cloud services don't exist to protect our privacy, there's a reason why they are free, we are a product to sell, to NSA or to the Ice Cream Company, doesn't matter. We can use Encryption, and is pretty easy to do so, we can use TrueCrypt or even Mac OS X Disk Utility to create encrypted disk, we even can use both, one inside of the other if we are that "paranoid"...

Well, NSA seems to get their first, at least to the latest 7.2 version of TrueCrypt...

Not Snow Leopard compatible any more, a small version number update and compatibility is lost.

Well, I don't understand why the developer makes an app that is most useful on old macs incompatible with older OS version, like Snow Leopard. Oh well.

Biggest advantage, it doesn't destroy OCR data from Clear Scan PDF Documents, biggest disadvantage it does not save comments and annotation to the PDF file making it very limited. On the other hand OS X Preview saves the annotations to the PDF but destroys the Clear Scan OCR Data, so the only good choice is the heavy bloated Adobe Acrobat Pro, that to be fair is getting lighter.

Yes, but still is not compatible with Adobe PDF ClearScan, saving any comment on a ClearScan pdf file makes the OCR corrupted.

1Password is/was an amazing app, that really make our multi browser life easier as helped a lot with all those passwords and log ins, But in my opinion there are getting greedy, for long time that users ask for Opera browser plugin, and now it's seems it just comes in a new 4.0 version, for 50$ that is only compatible with the latest 10.8 OS 64 bits only computer, so much for costumer support. Can you give a good reason for such lack of support?

Once a very promise app, but lacks updates for long time, it stop working correctly with the Snow Leopard 20013-004 Security Update, it seems to have a serious memory leak, starting with 50 Mb, and in a few seconds it gets more than a gigabyte! Making all the OS sluggish. An update needed or an alternative app.!
