Where's the Macintosh version? The download link is dead, and the "more information" developers link contains a download link to a list of manufacturers mobile devices, none of which are Macintosh.

This app has potential! Well, only 12 modules now, however, the developer says more modules are on the way. Let's see how it goes.
It's a beta version, so I give it only 4 star ratings.

Rixstep is different. With Rixstep you still need to search through websites for your information. Sinbad shows information directly.

It is not lightning fast, but pretty fast in getting results. Nice way to browse all Amazon categories, although searching Amazon is disabled (beta?).
I like Lonely Planet browsing, especially.

Looks cool!

Am I wrong to suppose that it's gonna be shareware soon? Just curious ...

In the meantime, fellow Mac users may want to compare Sinbad with these free appz:

And no, I'm not affiliated to, paid by or anyhow related to Rixstep.
