The original Popcorn Time was (Open Source) a service/app which shared his code to the developers community. It ended last March. But the code was free to use to continue do develop Popcorn Time. There are, at this time, at least (that I know of), two groups of developers doing that job in a more complete way: > http://get-popcorn.com: They are Opensource from the beginning. They share there code openly in Github (https://github.com/popcorn-official). And anyone is free to contribute or to propose and discuss new features, etc (http://discuss.get-popcorn.com). > http://time4popcorn.eu They're keeping their code closed, although in their site they say that the'll be publishing the code on Github.
Well, there seems to be some explanation of this situation here: http://popcorntimewar.com (just read the links at the end of this link) As a summary: It seems that http://get-popcorn.com is the real team of developers working on this great app. Just download the app from http://get-popcorn.com It seems the PopcornTime app from http://time4popcorn.eu, the one on this page of Macupdate, is NOT what I would call a trusted source.
I'm confused. There are already developers that make the "official" version of Popcorn Time: http://get-popcorn.com Is this the same one? Why don't join forces and resources? Or change the name (slightly) and change the site. This is to confusing for the user.
That's fine. But "Binge Time alpha" at least has a different name. What I'm trying to say is that this (http://time4popcorn.eu) and this one (http://get-popcorn.com) have exactly the same website appearance (almost), and If you download both apps, you'll end up with two apps with the same exact name and icon on your Mac. I could choose to download only one of them, but both are in different stages of development, different features, UI design, etc. Why not join forces and resources? Or, if that's not possible at all due to some reason (?), get to an agreement to differentiate between the two apps/names/websites? For the sake of the end user. The way it is now is so confusing for the user. And it hurts the community and the app credibility . It looks like a "War of Popcorn Time" HBO latest series (you can already stream it in Popcorn Time, but which PopcornTime do you choose? ;-)
There's no secret in these. They are doing nothing ilegal. The original code was Open. It's sad to see this kind of competition with 2 websites, names and icons exactly the same. I don't know what's going on.
I notice that this has not been updated since July 2012. Does it run without issues on OS X Mavericks (10.9.2)? Thanks
Ok, the developer answered me by email. This works great on OS X Mavericks.
Beamer 2 is coming soon :-) http://beamer-app.com/2
Version 3 of this extension has abandoned Safari: https://dnt.abine.com/#/stats
I'm changing to Ghostery.
There is a iFlicks 2.0 beta available to try out: http://support.iflicksapp.com/entries/26079868-iFlicks-2-0-beta :-)
No trial? Please. I have to try before I buy this. Reviews? Anyone? I'm interested in replacing Timelog (Timings, the successor is not on par). From the snapshots this looks really good and with some features of Timelog. Thanks.
I would like to ear actual feedback on the Adobe Muse application. How it works, if it is useful, if generate good code from the actual designs for website developers, etc. I'm very interested in that. Please, stop the moaning. I don't agree with all this new Adobe "rent model" to, but go moaning somewhere else. this is not the place. Thanks.
For some years now I'm a user of the fast and free "Clipmenu". I cannot use my Mac without it anymore. Copyless is more beautiful and has the same functionality, but with more options. And is $6.99. Hmmmm, I'll have to decide. :-) Thanks for the great app.
I forgot to mention one advantage of ClipMenu: I can put much more than 30 limit Pastboard capacity/history. I have mine with a limit of 200 items. But you can put more if you want. :-)
It changes the way you surf the web (in a more convenient way). I think that's the best compliment to this useful extension.
