I think it is excellent.

This s an excellent application. Very easy to use, pleasant type-face, easy page turn, good selection of free titles, remembers your place. Texts are downloaded, so you need no internet connection to read. Very heartily recommended.

This would have had 5 stars if the documentation had been better. It does all that it claims to do very well, but the silent video tutorial is not the easiest way to give instructions. I had to keep winding it back to get points that I had missed. But for quick access to the documents that it has found, it is wonderful. Much better than doing a PubMed search.

This looks potentially very useful to Scientific Editors as well as scientific authors, particularly for the abbreviations data. Note to developers: it would be nice to be able to change the default font.

I tried to convert a Flash video. I dragged it to the first box, set a name to save it as in the second box. I clicked Convert. A bar started to show activity. Two hours later it was still apparently converting. There is no progress indicator, no messages to tell you what, if anything, is going on, no Readme file, no help files. A worthless piece of software.

No review yet of This is now enabled for video using not just iSight cameras as in iChat, but cheap USB cameras. Moreover Skype users can now video conference not just with other Mac users as with iChat, but with PC users as well. It seems to work OK, recognizes my cheapo second-hand webcam and enables me to see my son who uses an iSight (he is a Mac user too). I've not yet tested it with a PC user. But this is the way to go.

These really are MUCH better than the Mac OS voices. If you use spoken text and spoken alerts much, you will find these natural voices well worth paying for. And they can be tried for free!

Yes, but that is only a problem with older Macs. They work well in iSpeakIt.

Nice simple little application. MUCH better than a widget even if it does take up a little real estate in the dock.
