Does exactly what it says, and runs without problems. I wish it incorporated the "Music Folder Files Not Added" script that searches the Music > iTunes folder on a hard drive for files that aren't in the in the corresponding iTubes library.

Works properly, ignoring songs that already have lyrics and not writing anything to songs for which lyrics aren't found. It doesn't find lyrics for a few songs, sometimes because of copyright (R.E.M.), sometimes because they're only available on an obscure website (and therefore have to be entered manually into iTunes), and sometimes because they simply don't exist anywhere (James Maddock). All in all, an excellent app.

Indispensable. I can't live without Bartender. Why this isn't part of OS X I don't understand, but I'm thankful it's available and works so well.

Provides quick access to information that I need, is stable, uses few resources and looks good. For me, the $10 upgrade is a reasonable price, but as always, YMMV.

This is a handy app for quickly previewing GPX files. I like that it includes a QuickLook plugin, but the plugin only lists key data for the GPX file, it doesn't actually show the route on a map (which I suspect is a limitation of QuickLook), so I still end up opening the file in GPX Reader.

I like it! Clean and simple interface, yet plenty of features. I'm knocking off half a star because if you set Entropy as the default app for zip files (and other archives), it assigns an eyeball-burning orange icon to them, which really looks out of place among all the other OS X icons. The dev says that redesigning the file icon is on his to do list, so I'm hoping my eyes get a break soon.

LynLynReview

Lyn is a fast, clean image viewer with some nice features. I particularly like the ability to connect multiple iPhoto libraries, which means that I can use Lyn instead of iPhoto as much as possible. I also like the folder tree on the left side of the window, which is an essential feature that is unfortunately missing from many other image viewers. The developer has responded quickly to my few questions and bug reports, and it's reassuring to know that Lyn continues to be actively supported, unlike a couple of other image viewing apps I have purchased in the past that are now abandoned.

OneNoteOneNoteReview

I've been looking for an Evernote alternative, and although OneNote is the best I've found so far (for my needs, at least), it still doesn't match Evernote. The showstopper for me is the inability to edit the list of tags, creating new tags and removing the ones I don't want. The additional organizational options in OneNote are nice, but I rely heavily on tags in Evernote and if I can't organize my notes in a similar manner then OneNote isn't going to work for me. I like the additional formatting options, especially being able to place text, images, tables and other items anywhere on the page, but was disappointed to find that I can't cut and paste a mix of text and images (such as from a web page) and instead have to paste the text and add each image one-by-one. I also can't drag stuff into OneNote like I can with Evernote. And surprisingly, I can't move sections from one notebook to another. The Mac version is definitely missing features that are in the Windows version. For example, I wanted to rename a notebook and change its colour. I found instructions on Microsoft's website indicating that i could make these changes in the notebook properties dialog, which doesn't exist on the Mac version (or the iPad version for that matter). My only option was to delete the notebook and re-create it with the name and colour I wanted. Maybe in a few more versions Microsoft will add enough features to OneNote to make it a viable alternative to Evernote.

These are not retina images. I saved an image to the desktop on my retina MBP and instead of being 2880x1800 (the native resolution of the retina screen), the image is a non-retina 1440x900. Other than that, it's a good source of wallpapers.

TresoritTresoritReview

I recently began using Tresorit, and so far I like it. In addition to Tresorit's security features like client-side encryption and servers based in the EU, things I like about the software include being able to sync any folder I want, so I'm not constrained to having to put everything into a single folder like Dropbox, and being able to not sync some folders (called "Tresors") on some computers, which is similar to Dropbox's selective sync feature. The only thing I don't like is that Tresorit doesn't handle Mac OS X metadata properly (or at all). Most annoying is that Mavericks tags aren't synced. Almost as annoying is Tresorit doesn't like "invalid characters" like question marks, which may be invalid on some other operating system (Windoze), but are perfectly valid in OS X. Another annoyance is that file extensions that are hidden on the source Mac appear visible when synced to another Mac. Similarly, files that are invisible on the source computer show up as visible when synced to another computer.

I forgot to note that files with "invalid characters" like question marks are not synced, so be careful when using these "special" characters.

I heard back from the dev, who says that "we are working on enhancing our Mac app and in the close future it will recognize and sync all the tags and metadata" and "we are working on a solution for these characters, currently we do not sync those files that contain these special characters."
