Nice first release but still a ways to go. There are two things that are really missing from this application that if added would really put it above it's competators: 1. A more graphical graphic interface. This is kinda the biggy. Right now the UI is mostly a window that opens up and runs the command, displaying progress much like it would in Terminal. This could be bettered by the use of progress bars and some decent layout and typography. Possibly more like Transmission or XLD, which use basic OS X elements. 2. Post-processing. A few competitor apps like Mac Par Deluxe will either process the files for you or open a program that will do it. This isn't necessary but it's a nice little bonus, even if it was just the default app. This can be augmented by the ability to define rules about how certain files are to be treated. — Over all I'd say this was a pretty good first release, just some minor improvements. One thing this really has going for it is it's a much smaller resource footprint than something like Mac Par Deluxe and it's faster. If they can just fix up that UI...

I actually quite enjoy the lack of a user interface. It has an extremely specific job with no real options that you could set. I would like to be able to drag and drop to an already open window and option to automatically open the file upon a successful repair would be nice, but these are in no way serious complaints. Excellent little piece of software - really gets the job done.
