What a pain!!! I upgraded from the previous version and it would not take my Reg Code saying it was invalid.It instead displayed my old Reg Code and stated REGISTRATION SUCCESSFUL! Then after quitting the app and relaunching it the app again asks if I want to upgrade and I say no and it displays the window asking for the reg Code I put in the new reg Code it says it is invalid and displays the old one and say reg is successful and on and on!!!!

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.

This has got to be the most annoying thing ever! Every time I close the app and relaunch it, a handful of my icons disappear and are either default icons or are loaded with the last icon I customized.

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!!

Ok, here's the problem: REQUIREMENTS PPC / Intel, Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later Huh? No one sees there's something wrong with this statement? If an PPC machine cannot install Intel ONLY Snow Leopard OS X 10.6, how can this product claim to be UB? Either make an UB app and make Mac OS X 10.5.8 as the minimum requirement, OR have an Intel ONLY version and require Mac OS X 10.6 and later... Sometimes I am not sure if these software developers REALLY understood what "Universal Binary" means. I just can't believe they claim this version is UB compatible on their website!

As an owner of Version 1, I was pleased with its efficiency . It was lacking some of the features from competitors, but it worked very well. Then, Version 2 is out, so I decided to take another look at the competitors before upgrading AppShelf. After testing, I chose to stay AppShelf and upgrade to Version 2. Here's why: It is fast and efficient, never crashes, never gets corrupted. It now allows you to make separate folders. It does a pretty good job of scanning for serials, and allows for attachments (linked or copied). It allows you to import other databases. Mostly these features are in the other apps too, but I like the way AppShelf handles it. It only uses 2 windows (info and attachment) instead of multiple tabs, and I really like that. I t never feels like it is bogging down the CPU on my older Mac. I think it's a great value for a great price. Reminds me of the stability and usefulness of SafePlace, which I still use to this day for my login info. (I could use SP for my licenses too, but prefer to have AppShelf for that - this way, it keeps both apps leaner without so much data to juggle / bog down. Plus, because the information is of a different nature, I like to keep it separated and not all in one app). To me, it's one of those rare apps that's coded so well and just always works beautifully. Recommend it highly.

AppShelf is an essential tool for storing and managing licenses and serial number of purchased applications. The database has all the fields you need, such as purchase date, version and Website, price paid, links to developer's home-page. There is also the possibility to add notes and attach files - useful for example to store the .license file required by some programs. Version 2 introduces the ability to scan the e-mail to find licenses, the ability to have multiple databases - such as in a Dropbox folder, as a backup - and a breakdown by categories and folders. In recent years it has been very useful for me, especially for the many Bundles purchased with multiple licenses to manage and remember. Websites (such as MacUpdate) provide a file .appshelf for purchased applications so they can be immediately recorded in AppShelf.
