Since the latest review for this application is from 2010 I thought I chime in here real quick. I have been using GPSPhotoLinker for over a year and it has always performed flawlessly for me (OS X 10.8.5). The interface is not particularly pretty or shiny, but functional and easy to figure out. I had no experience with geotagging before I got GPSPhotoLinker, but the process is really straightforward (even for beginners) - load the GPS data, load the photos and press a button. Most folks will probably only ever use the "Auto" mode, but I have found the "Manual" mode to be a great addition. I built a little database of the places I visit the most inside GPSPhotoLinker and now I can apply my tags manually to photos I didn't record data for, that's really convenient. GPSPhotoLinker is a great little app that does exactly what it is supposed to do (and it's free!). PS: I use my iPhone to record the GPS data when I'm out and about with my camera. The app I settled for is called "Geotag Photos Pro" and it automatically sends the data to Dropbox from where I load it into GPSPhotoLinker - I'm very happy with this setup :))
I have been using Delibar for more than two years and I never had a single issue with it. Since I am a Pinboard user I cannot comment on how the app performs with Delicious accounts, but Delibar in combination with Pinboard is just a joy to use - the app is fast, stable and pretty and the keyboard shortcuts are a godsend. Never having to use the mouse to interact with Delibar is worth the price alone for me ;)) The search is also remarkably fast and smart enough that I can find the item I'm looking for instantly. I wonder if the problems with speed and chrashes, that the reviewer before me mentioned, have to do with the amount of bookmarks (I have around 2000), the multiple accounts or maybe with Delicious itself? Maybe there are differences between the Appstore and Non-Appstore versions (I use the Non-Appstore version)? Whatever it is, it's a shame - because Delibar really is an awesome application and has always performed flawlessly for me. Also, the auto-completion of tags is instant in my case, like absolutely and totally instant. I can highly recommend Delibar (at least for Pinboard users), but you might want to do some testing with the free version before you buy - it seems that there are some performance differences depending on your setup.
I started using DesktopLyrics way back when it was still free and I am glad that the developer made the jump to the Mac Appstore. First of all, I think it's important to support the apps you love and use a lot to ensure future development. Also it's very clear that a ton of new features have been added to DesktopLyrics since version 2 - every customizability option under the sun is present by now and the app is much more polished. If you are looking for a lightweight iTunes companion to display lyrics for the tracks you're listening to, you can't go wrong with DesktopLyrics. You can tweak the display of the lyrics in every way imaginable and the app uses very little system resources. Also, I like the fact that you don't have to have a dedicated window open to see your lyrics - DesktopLyrics stays out of your way and doesn't clutter your dock and menubar. Features like global shortcuts and automatic page turning are icing on the cake and the new post-processing stuff with Python scripts sounds very powerful (I haven't tried it yet, though). All in all I can highly recommend DesktopLyrics - it does exactly what it says it does and it does it extremely well (for fetching lyrics I can recommend "Get Lyrical", which has already been mentioned by some of the other users here). Also, I contacted the developer because of an issue with my preferences and a feature request - the problem was taken care of immediately and the feature I asked for will be in the next update. Simply amazing!
