- The program works flawlessly. I have yet to see it crash after years of continuous use. - Lightweight: no bloatware, no resource hogging, quick to boot up. - The best user interface of all clients. Feels tailored for Mac users. - Frequently updated. - Dedicated user base and forum. All in all, unless you are difficult to please and need as many tweaks and options as possible (and in that case you don't need my advice) there is no logical reason to choose another client than Transmission.

This client has a large number of options and tweaks that are not available in other software so picky users might consider giving it a go. However the vast majority will find Vuze to be clunky and irritating in comparison to Transmission. There is simply way too much bloatware and unneeded add-ons that are installed along with it without the downloader's knowledge or consent.

I am exasperated by this trend of labeling a lack of features as a feature. Sometimes less is more, but this does not apply here. Just stick with TextEdit, guys.

Excellent software from the unconstested master of iTunes plugins. Does what it says and does it well, and is reasonably priced.

While an excellent software on the iPad, the mac version is quite useless and a big ripoff. Lack of features does not constitute a feature in itself, except in Kafka's literary works. The interface is smooth and pleasurable to handle, which is why I've not given it a half star rating, but that's it. I regularly have to write papers in French and was furious that this app does not even support simple accented characters like é or à which happen to come in several. It is also a pity that considering the price, there is no support for asian languages or other scripts, but at least the app warned us of this beforehand, unlike with most of its faults.

@Vangocambo I think it is you who is confused by the meaning of the term" simple". This app lacked crucial features. In fact, the lack of something as essential as accents broke my concentration and I spent a frustrating 15 minutes trying to find a solution so I could actually write grammatically correct phrases. So much for "distraction free". Simple DOES NOT mean unusable. I also find it supremely ironic that in one of your previous reviews for Bean (which I might add, an excellent program that does everything ia writer was supposed to and does it for FREE) you wrote the following: "What i don't understand is that all u people keep saying the software great. Why is there a need for this software, if u don't like MS Word, then don't use it. It markets for other users who need it. U can use Textedit if you want unclutter wordprocessor, why bother clutter your system with new software." Uh-huh. Funny that this could also have been a review for ia writer. If you want an uncluttered experience, use Textedit! So either you don't know what you are talking about or you are a very effective troll, because I totally fell for you bait.

I don't see the point of paying $8 for something AppCleaner can do for free with a cleaner interface. Even if AppCleaner did not exist, the price would still be unjustifiably high. The fact that it runs in the background and does its task automatically is irrelevant since uninstalling apps is not an action that has to be done regularly. In fact, I'd rather have a app that launches only when needed than one that consumes even tiny amounts of resources all the time. The less programs running at once the better. That said, I gave it a one star instead of a half star rating because its icon is easy on the eyes.

App does exactly what it says, is reasonably priced, and the developer responded to my queries. Highly recommended if you spend a lot of time at the screen. For example, I toggled F6 to be my browser shortcut and it saves me so much time.

It does what it says but is needlessly expensive. I feel like they are preying on gullible mac users, so I cannot give it a high score.

Wow, a lot of haters here! Flip, I don't know how clearer I could have made my review : app in theory good, but too expensive for what it is! Are you an alternate account of the developer or something? Anyway the price of $9.99 is perfectly reasonable, if I had seen it at the time I would have written a much more positive review. Thanks to Stoneman and sjk for pointing this out, I wish Macupdate staff woul update this page.
