Crashes A LOT. Can we have the Libraries/Folders panel down the left side instead of across the top.

C'mon Karelia Software, not you too. Another App Store only app relegated to my dustbin.

I can't find what exactly is different in the new 2.0 AppStore only version compared to the previous version. Would be nice to know the differences, or if it's only an AppStore update with a 2.0 label.

One thing I did notice was the app from the AppStore crashed when I clicked on the Pictures folder. Not a good sign when the app crashes less than a minute after launching it.

I think they should be listed here to enable discussions.
But I agree, the constellation is unfortunate.

Btw, another bad sign they don't bother to explain their requirements. Shouldn't this be the other way round?

This latest invention of the App Store system is a giant nonsense:

using the link on MacUpdate, i was lead to the App Store and confronted with a page of software i didn't want to know anything about nor to see all that confusing collection of things i had no interest in.

i got annoyed because i was not directed to the item i had clicked on MacUpdate, rather i had to search manually through hundreds of apps in order to find iMedia Browser which finally and despite of all visual searching was not found (what's the use of a clickable link on MacUpdate then ??);

then, after using the site's search engine, App Store told me it be installed - besides all other apps that were detected installed on my PRIVATE computer.

so, i closed the App Store and verified the "installed" iMedia Browser:

turned out there were 3 versions on different partitions, all of which outdated and thus, after losing a quarter of an hour, i'm still without the application i was after.

Conclusion:
All investigation done by App Store is worthless since - despite of the intrusion - it does not recognize versions of installed apps.

The raid on my computer committed through App Store is a major impertinent violation of one's privacy !!!!

We must not tolerate such sneaky divestment of our personal rights just for the reason of commercial greediness and increasing Big Brother attitude !

i'll delete this spyware (App Store) on my Mac and ignore all further offers available through App Store exclusively.

I've noticed that accessing the AppStore using FireFox instead of Safari does not direct you to the app you are looking for.

I agree with every word! Some developers are even starting to drop their own site considering the app store is enough information...

Unfortunately yet another fine app which developer has decided to completely alienate those of us who either have not upgraded to 10.6.6 or who refuse to use the App Store.

Karelia, count me as completely over you. No more paid business from me...

Ooops, sorry. The third time I opened it, everything went smoothly. No "force quit", my Aperture 3 library is there, not exactly fast, but I have more than 20.000 photos. Let's hope... let's hope...

Did you try and use this thing with your Aperture Library?
Impossibile. It begings "loading" and then it stalls there until the end of the time.
Only one solution: "Force quit", and f***k away with your iMovie, FotoMagico, RapidWeaver and so on and so on...

Jay Teo had trouble on 11 Dec 2008
Repeatedly crashes on my Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.5. When it does run, it quickly gets into a state where the preview shows question marks instead of thumbnails. Select a different media type and I get the spinning beach ball followed by a crash. :-(

Karelia is a reputable company. I believe (and hope!) they will fix this soon.

Same here. 1.1.2 doesn't work on the Leopard 10.5.5. When it doesn't crash it doesn't show any pictures and the info page is all gibberish. Had to reinstall 1.1.1.

Guntis had trouble on 29 Oct 2008
When I launched it first time, it started to load Aperture library and immediately crashed. Then I launched it again, but now I can see no images in Aperture library - instead of images it shows only question marks on the blue rectangles. When I click on Prefernces in the application menu, they don't open. When I click Send Feedback... - also nothing happens. Is this a joke on users? Have they tested their app before making it publicly available?

MacBook Pro 17" 2.33GHz 2 GB RAM, 160 GB free on HDD, Mac OS X 10.5.5 with all the latest updates. Aperture library contains 40.000+ referenced images.

Agree, this update is corrupt. It doesn't show any pics or music, mostly question marks. I quickly picked up the previous version from the Trash and threw away the update.

Exact same experience - question marks for photos, prefs won't load, can't send feedback. Really bad build.
