Crashes immediately on startup. Just a non-stop bouncing icon. This is on Mavericks.

Very cool - why did Apple do away with this?

OK, so I gave in & purchased this aquarium. There isn't much in the way of aquarium software/screensavers out there. The screensaver parameters are set within the screensaver itself, and not in System Preferences. But, unlike the free version, there are no issues with changing any of them.

It does look absolutely stunning on my 27" iMac!

Took a look at this, and it does look better than most aquarium screen savers I've seen. Unfortunately, all settings are done within the screensaver & not in System Pref's. Whenever I try to change the settings, the screen saver stops. It would be nice to have the settings where they should be, where you can alter to your liking.

I noticed their forum has an awful lot of questions and problems with add-on's. Screensavers really should be simple. If you need a forum for a screensaver, it is too complicated, or it isn't working right.

I'll pass on this one...

I saw this on the MacHeist bundle, and thought it would be a good app. Didn't buy the bundle, but I did buy this.

I love it. I liked the ability to order the menubar the way I want it. Now I can again. Plus all the extra bits I don't really need, are there just a click away.

I have a 27-inch iMac, but am thinking of buying a new lappie. This would be fantastic on a lappie. It's fantastic on my iMac!

This is a great app for finding all those difficult to find characters. I love the addition of the font sheets. Now you can view, in various sizes, what each the font looks like.

I don't use it much, but it is great to have when I do need it. It beats hunting and pecking for those key-combo's that you can never remember!

I wasn't sure about buying this app. I had known about it for some time, but I downloaded it today to give it a try. Hmmm, on first sight, I bought it.

I have been using MenuCalendarforiCal, but Fantastical is so much better! Although I have to admit, MCforiCal is still there for the clock!

The links have changed. They are now:


Great widget - better iOS apps. I use AeroWx Pro.

Thanks for giving me the choice to stop auto-save!

I whined earlier about this only being free for one page.

But it does a great job on one page. I ended up with a number of single page jpg's of text I wanted to scan. It was spot-on.

I'd have to say it is well worth it to buy - but they provide it free for one page files. They should have a time or run limit on this, as it is quite good.

Why does the HP Shortcut Manager Starter & HP Shortcut manager take up 100% of my CPU on wake-up?

Terrible. Every time I re-start the computer I have to quit these useless apps. I need to write it into my shell script so I never see them.

Better yet - why doesn't HP ever fix this. It has been an ongoing problem for years!

Buy from Epson or Canon instead.

Decided to give this a shot - activated most of the options. Place computer to sleep with hand covering mouse, and crash. Took me 5 minutes to get my new 27-inch iMac back to life!

Thought it would be better than MousePrefs, but it isn't.
