I don't know how well the torrenting function of this works, because the first thing it does is, go to two different sites I did not give it permission to do, and then try to install software that ISN'T µTorrent, and then it started messing with my computer… again, without permission. This behavior rates it a ZERO, no matter how it performs otherwise! If you stop it from doing any of this, it won't install the app… No matter how you obtain this, it's apparently not available as a real install package. WOW! (obtained both from MU and the µTorrent website)
For those familiar with this... An older Windows version of this phoned home, sending info it shouldn't, and was designed to not work if an internet connection was not present (it was obtained from their website). Does the current Mac version do this as well?
Can this work in such a way as to modify only the keys on an external numeric keypad, without altering the numeric keypad on the main keyboard? If so, that should probably be part of the main description, as that could have hundreds of uses (including the ability to have a boardroom table with a dozen keypads, each programmed differently, to use as a feedback method, for gaming, etc.).
With Mountain Lion, this needs an update to 64bit. Hope to see it.
We have been using 2 for the longest time, but now as we have a few new machines, we went to get the new version for the new architecture. Found the sale, and thought great! However, their odd German payment site keeps refusing to clear our payment. It's not a problem on our end and there is thousands of dollars more than needed in the account... And no quick and simple method to contact or pay by phone. This is just like being in a store to buy a TV, only to be told to just "get out" for no reason... "and you can't talk to the manager!" Oh, well. That's how you lose customers.
This could be handy. However, the link at macupdate currently goes to an empty white page... the developer's site does have a download link, but the site is in German... To get this to work, you need to install a bin, and though there is a working one for 10.6, you must be able to compile one for your version of OSX, and there is some issues with incompatible libs for some versions. --Good luck ^_^
I don't know how well the app works, but I've been on the receiving end of about 40 documents, recently, being sent from the UK, and have had no end of problems from yousendit, itself. Most of them server side errors, unexpected disconnections (that are consistent and repetitive), and "file does not exist" errors. I don't trust this service, and suggest you test the service (not the app) extensively before going for this.
Just wondering, because it gave me a bit of a start, when I saw the new icon coming up in the similar titles area... Why is the 4.0 capture and icon being used here? It certainly misrepresents the 2.6.6 version. Are we being teased, or is this a hint that maybe the newer version will soon be available by normal means?
Sadly this hasn't been updated in a long time, and there appears to be an issue between versions of itunes/os. For me and many others this widget does nothing. It says "iTunes not playing" even when it is. It does absolutely nothing even when clicking the buttons. It looks to be a nice little dashboard app, and has a very good selection of sources. Hopefully the author will fix the breaks, and add the ability to search additional sources if the initial source fails.
Is there something special this does? Basically, since the Mac was invented, such files I have always read by dragging them to TextEdit (or before that, TeachText). I even do this on Windows with WordPad. And if you really want to make it easier, just associate ".nfo" with TextEdit (Get Info | Open With | Change All) If it does anything fantastic, you need to mention that in the description.
