Doesn't appear to integrate the contacts with Address Book, or the Calendar with iCal. Couldn't see any way to import/export contacts and calendar. Also no apparent support for repeating actions, and no iPhone app to sync with. I didn't give a rating in case I'm wrong on these points, but I downloaded and tried it, and couldn't see how to do any of the above.

I know it's got the whole vision and goals thing going for it, but without these basic functions it's hard to see it making any headway against OmniFocus, Things, THL, etc. Also they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but to this beholder this is one fugly application. Looks like a port from Windows and kind of like Oracle, with some funky icons.

This is still in beta with a few features still to be implemented (like recurring actions), so no official rating given, but I would give it a 5 star rating based on its potential given the way it's working now. The Hit List strikes a great balance between elegance, ease of use, and power. It supports the usual GTD actions, projects and contexts, and also supports tags, tabbed views and smart folders.

OmniFocus is the big dog in this category, and has plenty of depth, but is a bit austere in its appearance and lacks tags. THL has the elegance of a Mac application and hits all of the features most people would want. I'm running OF and THL in parallel at the moment and am finding I much prefer the experience of using THL.

Dropbox is a great application. Once set up it just sits there and automatically keeps your dropbox folder synchronized between all the systems you have connected to your dropbox account. Dropbox works equally well with Mac, Windows, and Linux systems, or any mix of the three. Just launched to the public, dropbox has been in a closed beta for quite a while, and has been stable and remarkably trouble-free. The actual data which is copied to their server is held on Amazon S3, so it's pretty secure and well backed-up. The only ding I give it, is that (currently) the only options seem to be a limited size free account or a 50GB account for $9.99 per month, with nothing in between. A couple more options would be nice.

Overall though, I've been really impressed with it

Punakea is looking very good. Up until now I've been using TagBot, which I like a lot, and have around 1500 files already tagged. One feature that TagBot has is to import existing file tags. This is a big time saver if you have an existing tag scheme so a suggestion would be to add this feature. Also the ability to change the tag prefix from a '@' to a '&' would be great.

Looks really good. Any chance there could be an option or a toggle to hide actions with due dates in the future? I prefer not to see future actions unless I want to take a quick look and depress myself :-(

I'm still waiting for a registration code. I'm assuming they've been tied up with CeBit, but that's ended now.

1000gb! You have some serious networking bandwidth going there :-)

Great software. I just embarked on converting nearly 600 albums that I had previously saved in WMA format, 5621 songs in all. I batch processed around 50-60 albums at a time over several days and EasyWMA completed the job without a hitch including correct tagging all files. Does one thing and does it well. Recommended.

I am a Toast 7 user and ordered the Popcorn 2 upgrade. In the email from Digitalriver the space where the CD Key should be was blank and no follow up emails (checked my spam folder too).

Navigating the support site was a joke. Calling the support line numbers ended up with 2 groups directing me to call each other. Nobody had the ability to help me with a key so I've requested a refund. My conclusion is that if you buy a Roxio product you are on your own as far as support is concerned. If it doesn't work out of the box, forget it.

Finally got a CD Key after posting on the Popcorn 2 forum on the Roxio site

I downloaded the trial, opened up the application and created a note. I then closed the application and re-opened it. The note list came up blank, in other words the note I created previously had not been saved.

So I tried creating a new note repository in my Dropbox folder. This created 4 identical repository entries in the preference pane and resulted in many popup messages telling me there were duplicate entries.

My conclusion: This is not ready for release

As a follow up to my previous post, the developer has been very responsive to my bug reports and suggestions. The latest version V1.10 has a number of improvements and fixes, and is good enough to check out.

Downloaded OK. The installation failed right at the end after entering my serial number with a postflight script failure. My VM runs but ethernet is disabled.

There's a thread on VMWare Communities started covering this issue
