After searching in Mail.app for an email I knew existed, I finally looked for a better solution. What good timing, as InfoClick just came out. It took around 10 hours to index my 600k+ emails, but once it was done, I was quickly able to find the stray email that eluded Mail.app's search. So far, I'm very pleased. InfoClick is a nice, clean app that does one thing well and is priced perfectly which is exactly what I look for in an app.
I'm a big fan of Clarify. It's all about finding the right workflow. Clarify is not designed to maintain entire manuals, just one-off documents. I rarely save Clarify documents, instead, I create instructions quickly and upload them to clarify-it.com to share. The tool can seem limited at times (e.g. no hierarchy for steps), but after I learned about the companies methodology behind Clarify (http://www.bluemangolearning.com/customer_support/), I've found a new way to approach my instructions which both fits the style of Clarify and is usually quicker/easier to make. Before, it was like swinging a hammer with the head sideways. You can probably get the job done, but it won't be easy. Now I know how to use the tool right and I'm much happier with the results.
I'm a bit embarrassed by my first reply, I just didn't do my background reading before attempting to dive in. Apple's own Code Signing Guide is required reading before getting started: http://bit.ly/YazXao Once you get your footing, the app is much easier to use. Still, this is a very complex area and I would like to see more comprehensive documentation in the app. There is a short manual and a nice tutorial, but a lot of knowledge is assumed.
I can't function on a new system until I get FastScripts installed and setup. It's invaluable to my workflow.
Wonderful tool. I use this to help design AB Tests for my website. Just snap your current page, rearrange in Photoshop, then slice out the layers you need for the new test layout. Great time saver.
I love this app, use it all the time, but it needs an update for Lion. The masks generated for windows are off (as the shadows have changed in Lion) and the windows in the resulting PSD aren't positioned exactly like they are on screen.
Ah.... love it. Really helps optimize my support workflow. Maintaining a huge list of stock replies is a pain, and this app takes that pain away. Great work!
I've been using Snapz since I got my first Mac. It has been rock solid all along and is one of the first apps I install on a fresh system. I know there's a lot of competition in this market, and infact I have a few other apps just for doing little things here and there, but Snapz is the only one I consistently use on a DAILY basis. And if you have an older PPC based Mac (PowerBook, iMac, etc), this is the ONLY app that can capture video at a decent frame rate.
There is a 4.3 version of the app for Snow Leopard from the developer's website.
It took me a long time to figure this app out, so here's my analysis: The real value this app provides is in the many modules which contain hundreds of domain specific questions to help direct a brain storming session. My favorite module is the Naming module, which helps you name companies, products, etc. Being a developer, naming is one of the hardest parts and biggest obstacles to getting a project moving the right direction. Apart from the questions, the tools that aid the brainstorming session are helpful, but a little simplistic. You feed a word into the IdeaBrowser and it shows you images, quotes, lyrics, rhyming words, synonyms, etc. Helpful, but nothing you couldn't do with some Google searches.
