Excellent, easy to use app, makes subtitling of videos a fun task.

Great new application that brings you all your social sites updates into a simple and very mac-like interface. It's still in beta, but it's very stable and has never crashed. I wish future updates will bring FriendFeed support, but the app is still young and its future is bright. I love it.

This is the Media Center software to use on Mac OSX. While it might seem daunting at first to set up, it's actually easy to use and offers a great deal of customizations. You can download skins to change the way it looks (I'm very fond of xTV, a Front Row clone). OSXBMC plays most of the known media file format with better results than VLC. High Definition MKVs look great and software upconversion do wonders on SD content. The developers are friendly and open to suggestions and this thing is free - what more could you wish?
My favorite feature of the newest betas is smart folders support! Too cool!

An indispensable utility for any serious Mac user. It has almost replaced my favorite launcher utility (Launchbar). Fast, efficient, problem-free and very easy to setup and free! Highly Recommended. Please support the developer by donating.

Absolutely brilliant! Nice and simple, although the developer stopped the development a great addition would be to just drag the new urls to the Urly dock icon and forego the need for drawers.

After years of using VLC as my video player of choice I came upon Chroma Player. This is how a video player for the mac platform should look and act like. Used it for the full 15-day trial period and never had a crash. Much more stable than VLC but the best part is how it renders subtitles using the native resolution of the monitor instead of that of the video file (like VLC). The result is crisp text that doesn't strain yor eyes. Also try using the transparent background subtitle style (the animation of the text box is wonderful). I love Chroma and use it a lot so I wrote a Sofa Control script for that (it's in the new version of Sofa Control).
I only hope the next versions will add playlist support. If you like me are anal about type (and if you're using a mac you should be) and view a lot of movies with subtitles then Chroma is the player for you.

Although I was a heavy user of Newsfire and later Vienna, NetNewsWire 3.0 made me switch in a heartbeat, as soon as I downloaded the first beta. The reasons are many: The new UI came leaps and bound in aesthetics, compared to the clunky view of NNW 2.x - full screen mode -combined view - OS integration - snappy Spotlight search - vertical tabs with nice previews & the fact that I have it installed on my 5 macs with a single licence. NetNewsWire 3.0 has everything a modern and advanced RSS reader have and more. It has even become my browser of choice!

Very addictive card game and now that 2-player works via Bonjour, MacBornes rocks. You can even create your own set of cards or themes (I did) for a more personal touch. I'd like to see more card games like this on the Mac platform. Kudos to the developers for making this a freeware!

This is a great puzzle game from the developer of Solavant. The game interface is very elegant and simple (avoiding flashy and cartoony set pieces and backgrounds), making Tangrams solving on your mac as fun as it can be. The mechanics of the game are nicely done with a snap-to-grid function that allows for easy placement of the pieces. There is no timer, you play as many puzzles as you like at the time (amongst the impressive number of 1000 puzzles!) making it a great game to kill your time between tasks or when you need to take a small break from work. When you're stuck on a puzzle there is a progressive hint system that makes your life a bit easier but ruins your stats! ;-) Finally each puzzle is numbered, so you can mark your favorites and share with friends.

Excellent widget with great usability for us TV-Shows junkies. One stop at my Dashboard and I can see what to expect to see tonight. Kudos to the developer for a great and beautiful widget. I used to use thefutoncritic.com for tv listings but now TV Forecast it is. Easier and quicker [F12]. Perharps a next version will allow for resizing.
