Phynchronicity for Mac4.2.0

03 October 2011

GUI for Fink Unix-software package management system.

What is Phynchronicity for Mac

Phynchronicity is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the Fink Unix-software package management system on Mac OS X (http://www.finkproject.org). Fink is a powerful command-line tool for installing and updating thousands of Unix-based applications for the Mac. But Fink's sheer power and scale make it hard to use, even with a GUI.

Phynchronicity aims to make Fink easy to use. Unlike other GUI tools for Fink, it does not overwhelm you with options. Instead, with a simple three-pane interface, it lets you get started doing what you want to do--finding, installing, and removing software.

What's new in Phynchronicity

Version 4.2.0:
  • Numerous bugfixes for improved compatibility with OS X 10.7 Lion

From the developer: This release adds some nice UI polish to the app with a native Cocoa toolbar, and also fixes some bugs in the print engine. It's worth a look.

These new features significantly improve Phyncronicity's integration with OS X, and make the application more pleasant to use. They also offer more ease-of-use than other Fink GUI's. I highly recommend this update, and if you use other tools to manage your Fink software packages, it's a good time to give Phynchronicity a try. You won't be disappointed.

$25 for something that manages, if similarly priced by greedy developers, constitutes tens of thousands of dollars worth of software. Except, the packages in fink are generally free (and all free, as far as money goes.) You want people to pay you $25 for a simple wrapper to all of this? Are you really that desperate and greedy? I do hope anyone who has, for whatever reason, paid for this, returns it and tries to file a dispute with PayPal and/or their credit card company. This is an ABSOLUTE scam.

This finally feels much more usable now that categories are cached. This release definitely makes it more pleasant to use and a little faster. The only thing missing now is an interactive mode.

Still really slow at updating the table information. It updates one category at a time. I hope this gets addressed soon.

While we do need something to replace the stagnant FinkCommander, at least it's free. But this? $20 for an admittedly simple GUI for a free package manager? Doesn't sound remotely worth it to me.
