I just loved this app and think it had great potential but Radical Breeze bought it and now it's in the wind which makes me sad and angry that they would not continue to develop such a great app that had even greater potential. Where did it go? I really wish someone would pick it up and continue development on it, even if they started charging more for it, I would sick with it. I really miss it :(. I can't find anything else close to it that I really like. It just sucks!! Radical Breeze sucks as well!

I guess Formation is dead. Hopefully Radical Breeze returns the rights to the program to the original developer or some other more active shareware developer buys it. It has potential, but since RB bought it, it's gone nowhere. *sigh*

The original Formation showed great potential. Radical Breeze used to be a respected company, so when they acquired Formation it seemed to be a positive move.
Unfortunately Radical Breeze did not deliver on their frequent promises, and so far I have not seen a decent version of Formation which includes what was promised. About a year ago they said it would take 2 more weeks, if I remember correctly. Time sure flies.
Their only program that I use occasionally is Disc Blaze, and still I ended purchasing Toast. I would not waste my money on Formation as long as it's developed by Radical Breeze. Too many promises but no improvements.

So in trying to decide which program will become my personal information manager I've downloaded Yojimbo, SOHO Notes, Mori, Circus Ponies Notebook, and Formation. Formation seems to be the most full featured application I tested, however it also has the steepest learning curve. It can do whatever you need it to do, be it orginize your contacts, calender, passwords, serial numbers, etc, etc. But to me, where my needs are modest, the program seems a bit overkill. Plus if it's true that the developer is no longer writting programs for the Mac, then support may become spotty, which is unfortunate. Yojimbo is on the other hand VERY simple to use (almost to a fault) and syncs with dot Mac which is nice. SOHO notes is another alternative, but support for it is also spotty.

well, don't bother buying this software. or any other radical breeze software. the author has decided to abandon the mac platform and switch to linux.
unfortunate, as they made decent software. but don't waste your money, since they probably won't update anymore.

This program seems amazing. The functionability is great. I've encountered a few bugs and crashes though after 10 minute with the demo. If they can be fixed, I fully plan to use this program more than my email.

glad to hear v2 will be free to registered users. Nice app, but needs improvement.

As a registered user, I'm pleased to see Radical Breeze take over, as it's a great app, but has been slow to evolve. RB will probably be a bit more aggressive with updates.

Call me a snob. Call me picky. But there are waaaaaaaaaay too many icons in this interface.
