I need to say right up front that I don't use this app but when I see a company just today touting POSTNET barcoding as a "new" feature, I can confidently tell you that you're dealing with a developer who places no priority whatsoever on keeping the software updated. I mean, get real, mail barcoding and pre-sorting by Zip Code has been required for years and years to receive the USPS reduced-mailing rates; yet, this app is marketed, in part, as a "Small Office" application. NOT And if it takes this long to implement barcoding, what do you think will happen when an OS update "breaks" this software? Will you be dead in the water for an extended period? Or forced to delay the OS upgrade to accommodate Chronos while they take their own sweet time providing a fix? I'd say run, don't walk, away from this software. There are plenty of alternatives by developers who are on the ball. BTW, now that Chronos has finally implemented the ancient POSTNET barcoding, I should also mention that starting in 2009 the USPS standard is Intelligent Mail® Barcoding. It's required for small offices receiving the maximum USPS discounts on their mailings. Wonder how long it'll be before SOHO Labels gets around to incorporating that requirement? The Intelligent Mail® specs were published in 2006...2½ years ago! http://ribbs.usps.gov/OneCodeSolution/

Chronos has virtually zero tech support. I've had a question outstanding for 2 years, yes 2 years. Chronos also allows their code signatures to expire, which causes the application to not open. Beware.

Not listed in MacUpdate is Avery's Free Design & Print that is available to use on-line and as a downloaded App. While limited to their labels, it is quite comprehensive and might be a respectable alternative to the other overpriced and poorly supported products. Libreoffice, the open source free alternative to Microsoft Office will also do labels and merge printing but it can be initially a bit tricky to setup for this use.

The Avery online label creator converts graphics to bitmaps. Thus print quality is poor.

FYI * As of 2019 January 21, version 10.0.2 is available. I'm trying out the demo now, after disappointment with BeLight & their dropping of support for Labels & Addresses, and the lackluster labels module in their Printworks 2. This demo (10.0.2) is running and printing fine under High Sierra. FWIW, the Mac App Store version is $24.99; the Chronos site is $39.99 -- but the Mac App Store still shows 10.0.1 as the latest version. (As is par for the course, the Mac App Store may be many months behind the developer in getting the update published.)

As others have noted in these comments, this company, Chronos, has a virtually NON-EXISTENT service/support program. There is NO FORUM, NO E-MAIL , NO LISTED STREET ADDRESS, NO PHONE NUMBER anywhere on their website. The only form of contact is a fill-in "Support Ticket". Filling out that form results in you receiving a boilerplate email reply "We received your inquiry"..

That's the last you'll hear from them.

I have several pending problems with their software that have been languishing for over 6 months. Then, when they don't fix the problems with an existing version of the software, they have the gall to introduce a new version and charge a ridiculous amount for an "Upgrade".

Stay away from this company and their software. This is a NO STAR RATING.

Beware purchasing anything from Chonosnet. Even though their products show promise and most of the time work well, their customer service is none existent. I have placed multiple "tickets" in customer support and have got no response ever! I upgraded from 9.0 only to find I could not create a new label/file. After much frustration I deleted all upgrades and went back to 9.0. Running 10.10.5 Yosemite on my Mac. I really don't know how a company plans to stay in business with such sorry customer service.

In spite of my previous caveat, I've returned to Labelist (9.0.1) since Labels & Addresses refuses to acknowledge that their current version (1.7) has problems when used with OS X 10.11. So far no problems with Labelist.

I don't do business with companies that have a reputation for poor customer support, which judging from previous customers comments, this company has. That is why I will probably purchase a competing product. from a company that does not seem to have this baggage. By the way, the Chronos' phone number is (435) 615-7335 for those who want to try and get support by that means.

I hate to be negative; I simply want to know whether Libelist version 8 is compatible with Yosemite. I paid good money for this software and cannot get them to reply with an answer… emails, tickets, follow ups. Nothing will induce them to offer anything like decent support. Shall not use Chronos again :-(

BEWARE: DO NOT purchase any product from Chronosnet.com if you expect a response to purchase/serial number problems or bug resolution requests. Too bad, since many of their products are pretty good: I own SOHO Business Card, SOHO Labels and, now, Labelist, an upgrade to SOHO Labels. I purchased the upgrade May 5, 2012. When the purchase receipt email arrived it had the serial number and so forth. But the serial number did not work. And their only response, elicited via their clumsy ticket system on their website was: "Well, it worked for us." I couldn't respond to their email since they won't accept emails. So back to the ticket system..And since their ticket system does not, apparently, allow for attachments, like a screen shot of the input serial number box and the failure message that came up next, I included a Dropbox link of a zip file of the screen captures. And I never received any response even though I filled a a new ticket several times. Dead silence.

It's incredible that new full point versions of this product continue to roll out every year, yet Chronos continually fails to include new features that are truly useful and worthy of the upgrade price. I am particularly referring to basic Applescript support. SOHO Labels is without a doubt the best labeling software on the Mac, but the complete lack of attention to automation features like Applescript support completely baffles me, and is the only reason why I am still using SOHO Labels version 4 (and in retrospect, there was nothing in the v4 update that I find myself using that justified upgrading from v3.0).

Same thing here. Version 7.0 looks exactly like version 4.0 i have bought. I see no reason why i should upgrade. It is probably the best Label software for mac, but it also is ridiculously expensive. 40 dollar for the full version and 25 for each upgrade. If i had followed that upgrade path i had payed 115 dollars in total for that software while not getting much back for it. The shouldn't artificially bump the version numbers if there are no real features. Oh and cut the price in half, then i guess they would sell a lot more versions. In times where we have the app store this program is way too expensive.

Unless I fail to understand your premise, I believe you have misinterpreted the December 10, 2008 announcement from Soho Labels 4.0. Could it be that you inadvertently combined the software's new ability to print a varied range of Facing Identification Marks mentioned under the "What's New" heading with the phrase "Supports 15 barcode formats" in the opening paragraph, resutingin belief that the software was only just now capable of supporting U.S. Postal POSTNET printing? In any event, visitors to this page should be aware that from the very beginning, which was Version 1 of Labels & Envelopes, Chronos's SOHO products have been capable of printing POSTNET barcodes. (Not to mention PLANET, U.K. Royal Mail, Japan Post, UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN13, EAN8, Industrial 2 of 5, Interleaved 2 of 5, Modified Plessey, Code 39, Code 39 Extended, Code 128, and Codabar barcodes.) No, i don't work for them.

@A. B. CARRACHO Before you wrote your comment two weeks later, the developer removed POSTNET barcoding as a "new" feature in the MacUpdate "What's New" (in the version) area. That's why my post didn't make sense to you. :-)

Oh, great. Just because I replied to your comment without taking the time to first ask you about the underlying detail, I get modded down a point. How dare you make a fool of me by pointing out the truth! Only my wife and kids are supposed to do that. Also, now that I read it again, I perceive a hint of snarkiness -- and a lot of know-it-all -- in my words. I apologize for that. You could have been righteously indignant in your reply, yet you weren't. I thank you for that as well.

This is a great program. I was previously using Synex MacEnvelope (which apparently is not going to upgrade to OS X) and DYMO's DLS (which is a piece of junk). SOHO is easy to use and far outdoes both of the aforementioned programs. Apparently there's no tech support during the 30-day free trial (at least for the past 48 hours); hopefully that improves once you purchase.

I agree that "company" sorting is needed for the professional user, but I am sure that knowing Chronos that they'll get to it shortly. This app is nothing short of stunning in its execution, GUI, depth, and professionalism. Truly what Mac apps need to aspire to being. I had another labels app that I loved, but now I smitten with this one.

Great app overall - fills a much needed gap for envelope printing from Apple's Address Book, however, be aware that the current version (1.2) only sorts for First Name or Last Name. There is no way to sort on Company. Those doing labels for bulk mailings cannot sort on the postal code to take advantage of USPS requirements for bulk mail rates.
