This has been a most frustrating experience. It is as though somebody was laughing at me. I paid for the license, then received the receipt. Then read the instructions. Downloaded the link with the license first. Then istalled the software. Then it told me that my license expired. So I went to unlock. When I clicked it led me to "application folder" but the icon of primefiles was not lit so it could not be clicked. Great. So I dont understand. I download a lot of stuff but this beats all of my experiences.

To open your license file, please select in the menu 'Purchase' and then 'Unlock…'. Use the dialog to navigate to the location where you saved your license file (named YOUR_NAME.pflicense) , select it and click open.

This was being was on promo today at MacUpdate Promo. I only downloaded the trial, but felt that I saw enough to make the following comments on the MU Promo "discussion: page.

Looks interesting and the concept is sound, but the following items are issues for me.

The zoom control only seems to work by clicking on either side of the slider. You cannot "grab" and drag the slider. Annoying. I"m using OSX 10.6.8, if that matters.

Second limitation, and most important to me, is that the only view of the items in your collections is a space-wasting icon view. Also, in order to be able to fully read even short file names for the icons, they have to be zoomed quite large. Zooming to a large size is even more of a requirement if you expect to read secondary (subtitle) information, such as a date/time stamp. I really wish this program had a "list" view, similar to Finder.

I'm passing on this one for now, but perhaps future updates will address the issues of concern to me. I'll keep an eye on it.

Sorry, but I can not reproduce the slider issue here (works fine on 10.6.8 and 10.7.2). BTW, you can also use CMD +/- to zoom.

Thanks for looking into it and posting. It does now seem to work for me as well. Perhaps it is an intermittent problem, but it was an issue even after several launches and shutdowns of the program.

I like some of the capability, especially the tagging.

The down-side for me is double-clicking an app to run it. I can understand the logic which, I assume, is so people can tag and add Spotlight comments. However, I run apps more than I tag, so it would make more sense to Cmd+click an app to add tags and comments.

Even though it's a tie between Overflow and PrimeFiles for me, Tags+Overflow gets me to where I need quicker.

Very useful, well implemented, almost exactly what I've been looking for. A few tweaks would make it nearly perfect...
