AppShelf overview

AppShelf is for you if you've bought apps in the last several months - or even years ago - and now have no idea where the serial number is. Have you ever found yourself digging through archived emails in search of registration info?

With AppShelf you can bundle all the "stuff" related to a software purchase into one place. It's easy, just drag and drop!

I relied on this abandonware to store serials ever since Macheist started using them to distribute serials. Macheist stopped doing that. They stopped updating. I have had my database corrupted and serials lost. Really, all this had to do was be a database and it has failed at that.

I am getting somewhat annoyed. For the umpteenth time AppShelf is loosing most of the app icons and either just shows a generic icon or the wrong icon (this time it's RapidWeaver icons). I'm seriously considering writing my own replacement. User-friendliness could be better. You can make category folders (e.g. Adobe apps), but you can't drag&drop an entry on the new folder - you have to create the entry from scratch. You can't duplicate an entry to make repeat entries easier (e.g. you got 12 apps from AppBuzzer but they don't provide an AppShelf file). You can't have a template for multiple entries. It's a nice start, but data corruption and missing features mean I can only give 2.5 stars.

I just got this app as free MacHeist 4 loot that was sitting in my account. I didn't even have to solve a puzzle or anything.

I have used App Shelf for over a year. It is an easy to use, helpful app. I have purchased many Mac Bundles and this is the best app I have found to track all the serial numbers. I have presented this to my Macintosh User group, (MacTechnics.org) and the app was very, very well received. I copy the description of the various apps and post each in the appropriate comments section. Then, those apps I don't use very often allow me to get a general overview of what the app does immediately. It has saved me many times when contacting the developers, URLs are right there. I love the launcher feature! Very Handy!! SUPER APP!!
