It solved some tricky problems for me. I like it!
1. googling without openning brower or dashboard
2. words matching and lookup in Dictionary is also handy for me! I was always using google to do this and now I have a real tool for this.

Tried to figure out some other features, looks like the Comands mode is powerful, but I expect more examples or a video demo for that. I recommend guys read the manual first before use, though I know it is boring... ;D

Suggest the developer to embed a textview something to make it easier to edit the multi-lines text. yep, overall a good one as "1.0" product.

They are different things, I think :-). Manual tells more.

Seems to me that with the dog-eat-dog competition of Quicksilver, Butler, and LaunchBar, that this app is going to have a tough time competing in its present form, especially considering the $16.95 price when Quicksilver and Butler are free. Quicksilver does it all for me.

Hooray, it's a $20 version of Quicksilver *and* the developer demands you give him your Mac's serial number before you can buy a copy. Paranoid much?

according to "file launch", kinda right what you mean.
but I am curious how much you dig into it? I don't like all of it but some of them are good enough for me. At least I don't think I am "paranoid" because I bought it... :)

I don't see what SpeedUp does that QuickSilver can't ?
And QS is free...
