I want to thank the developer for making this great software available for free.

It's very useful for avoiding the pain of repetitive stress and screen staring; but also just as useful for avoiding the frustration of wasting time browsing around.

Use the breaks to "wake up"!

This is the software that I've been looking for for the last 3 years.

It's difficult to describe how pleased I am to include Skim in the workflow for my research notes.

Already at 0.3 it does an amazing number of things, that I thought I was going to have to break down and write my own program to do. They just saved me weeks of work, and for that I am truly grateful.

I'd really like to use this app, but all of the pdfs I use have two columns, so until it can do rectangular text selections (like Preview or TextEdit or most other cocoa apps) it's useless to me.
Here's hoping for the future.

This has to be one of the coolest programs I've seen in a while for monitoring what's going on in the background while you're working.

Great utility. Helped me decide between two LCD monitors--I could quickly and easy find the one with dead and stuck pixels. There was one stuck RED pixel, that I wouldn't have noticed during browser and word processor use, but that stuck out like a sore thumb when I tried a DVD. Without this utility I might not have found it.
Additionally, it has a test pattern to help you set the phase shift--something I wouldn't have know to calibrate on my new monitor.

This is one of the most used pieces of software on my machine. If you only use it as an application launcher, it's worth it. (but to be honest I've never tried Butler or Lauchbar, both of which seem to have very loyal user bases.)
However, it can really be so much more, if you're trying it out (or even using it regularly as just a laucher) try out these functions:

clipboard history
shelf module
append to file...
open URL
process text with your own Applescript
move files around on your system
[Version 1.0b47]
