Okay... This developer recently took part in the MacUpdate Promo deal and offered his Security Bundle for $19.99 instead of $69.99. That is where things started to head south. It was discovered that Thomas Geza of Apimac (the developer) was using several sockpuppet accounts and shilling for his own software, by pretending to be users. One such account is Thomas76 below, renamed from having previously been called Thomasgeza, and it wouldn't surprise me if he renames it again later.

He's shilling for his own overpriced garbage, and was downvoting every comment that exposed him. I was going to let it slip, but his continued disgusting actions have forced me to take this outside the promo and warn future prospective users about who he is, and expose the kind of software he sells.

Okay... So let's look at his Mac Security Bundle's components:

Secret Folder: Hides folders, can be done for FREE with multiple freeware alternatives like altomac.com/hide_folders/

Protect Files: Creates a password-protected DMG file, can be done for FREE from Disk Utility which comes with all Macs (press New Image and select a value for Encryption and you will be given an encrypted DMG that you can lock/unlock and store files in).

Compress Files: Creates a password-protected zip archive. Can be done with the FREE Zipeg which can compress/decompress password-protected archives, at zipeg.com.

Encrypt Email: All it does is send a password-protected DMG or Zip as an email attachment. Seriously? You could do that on your own for FREE. Plus, if you wanted real email encryption, there's yet another FREE solution called GPG which is a cross-platform (Mac, Linux, Windows) solution for encrypting/decrypting emails and signing them with digital signatures to guarantee authorship etc. Can be downloaded for FREE from gpgtools.org.

So, total value of this bundle: FREE.

Anyone paying for his software is getting thoroughly ripped off by a scumbag.

His shill account(s) have been removed by MacUpdate and the fraudulent reviews below are gone. Good riddance.

Hello johnny_bravo , you learn more from criticism than from praise so we thank you for your comments. We asked all our employees not to comment ever our products and to remove from any resource online any comment if any.

@Apimac: "We asked all our employees not to comment on our products".

That SOUNDS good, EXCEPT you may want to explain something. The shill account was named "Thomasgeza", and if you look up Apimac, it says:

Company Name : Apimac.com
Contact Person : Thomas Geza
Contact Address : Via Roma 53
City : Milano
State : Milano
Country : Italy
Zipcode : 20100
Phone : 9022-74842412
Company Website : http://www.apimac.com
Email : thomas@apimac.com

How do you explain that it appears that the company OWNER was the person doing this, NOT an employee?

A person who takes care of press releases enthusiastic about the product. He used his personal account to express his opinion. It is he who has asked that his account and his comments were deleted.

If that is true then it is good that it has been dealt with.

Tested this yesterday. Very nice interface and fast engine. Shows promise. Enjoyed it quite a bit. Only that for serious and demanding work with small databases EagleData http://www.eaglesoft.de/eagle/eagledata.html still has much better features and is freeware. Would like to see EagleData registered in the MacUpdate database, by the way.

Better.
At least I can now finally import some files, the version 1 was absolutely unsuccessful in that.
(Tech support: "your file is wrong" though all other applications like Excel or Numbers could read it fine. And now can Version 2...).

Still basic, but now I can finally explore its usability.

Got this from a bundle as well and was disappointed, too. This app is WAY too basic. To me it appears more some kind of school project than some serious thing.

I know it sounds harsh, but I simply cannot see how this app might be useful. There is not even a way to see all your entries in a consolidated view, just one at a time.

For what it does, you have more options even in Numbers. Sorry, but this one has a long way to go.

I bought this from a bundle yesterday and gave it a try.....it turned out that i really do not need this one.
It just can not compare to bento in every aspect, even the iphone version...
the only good point is that it is much cheaper than bento...
anyway, i discard it since i already bought bento both for mac and iphone
