Someone called "MACUPDATE-USER" is telling us:
"DevonThink is too complicated and cluttered. It is good for what it does... but for instant ease of use, simplicity, yet jam-packed with features... SCRIVENER IS THE WAY TO GO. There is just no questions about it. I have used many word programs, and I LOVE SCRIVENER THE BEST!!!"
What a complete farce.

Shouting out loud: "I don't understand Devonthink" is a good recommendation for Scrivener?

Why don't you bash "Photoshop CS 4" for being more difficult than "Picturetwirl 1.0b24"?

Devonthink goes far beyound this little app.
It's a complete solution for information managment, if you ever work on bigger, comprehensive projects you maybe understand its superiority.
Till than stop bashing quality to promote inferior things.

Your term "instant ease of use, simplicity, jam-packed with features" is the exact description for: Devonthink.

You individually may prefer for example Pixelmator or GraphicConverter for your minor tasks but that's no reason for bashing the original Photoshop.

Your adulation for Scrivener in combination with bashing the better competitor is very transparent.

I have no other relationship to Devonthink than using it for years for my professional writing projects, what about you and Scrivener?!!!

See this as my review, I think my recommendation is clear.
I don't use the star rating, think of it as fairness.

Wrong place for bashing

Stuffit Expander 13.0.1 is free and works well.

Stuffit Expander can expand sit, sitx, zip, rar and many others as well and is absolutely free.
Whats the problem?

No reason to moan here.

The only thing I would wish is the ability to remember a password for a session of extracting.
Its a bit stupid to type or paste always the same password in again and again for twenty files which use all the same password.
A clever password managment would be fine.

I type in a password, make a mistake and the app quits, thud, no second chance like in StuffIt Expander.
That could be better, as you have only "bullets as visual feedback" while you type (How stupid is that? Typing a long passphrase without any real visual feedback and if you make a mistake the app immediately quits?)
I don't want to see bullets, I'm not James Bond, no security risk sittin on my shoulder while I type the 28 chars long passphrase.

I stay with Expander, very bloated and also stupid but free, for my zip archives I use the contextual menu already integrated in the OS.

Thank you
