It's easy to use and very well designed. After wrestling with Interarchy's theoretical Amazon S3 connectivity for over an hour, I happened on ExpanDrive and was connected in less than a minute.

It's my new favourite SFTP and DropBox client, too! (Why have DropBox use up your local storage when you can just take it from the cloud on an as-needed basis?)

A while back I wrote a review for v9 that mentioned it was buggy, so I thought I should follow-up to say that I have found v10 to be rock solid. HUGE improvement in reliability in this release.

Since I didn't mention it before I should point out one of Navicat's features that if you use it once will make the app worth the price: If you open a connection to two databases at the same time, you can migrate your tables (and views, procedures, etc) just by drag & dropping them from one db to the other. Boom. Done. No exporting & import. It's barely more difficult that moving a file across a network. Amazing.

The other parts of the app continue to be refined, making editing tables, and stored procedures just a *little* bit nicer.

And I know it's been there for a while, but the SSH tunnelling feature is enormously handy when trying to access a database behind a firewall.

Thanks Navicat devs!

Fantastic Upgrade! I decided to try this app out a few months ago and its since earned its place as my go-to ripping utility.

The latest release makes significant improvements to the user interface over v3 (which wasn't bad to begin with). I love the new multi-step option for ripping. (It will be a lot easier to convert my TV series DVDs this way!)

I actually paid for the upgrade as soon as it was released, not realizing my old code seems to work just fine (I must have bought it at a time when the upgrade to 4 was bundled in to the serial number or something). But these guys did a such a great job with this version I don't mind paying (the VERY reasonable upgrade price) twice.

Beautiful work, DVDSuki!

This has been a HUGE time saver for me (I need to file all correspondence with many different clients).

It makes great guesses about where things should be filed so I'm only having to change its guess about 5% of the time.

The (correct) labelling of messages with 'to/from' based on whether it was sent or received is another feature that I now find indispensable.

Just as it is, it's worth every penny and I look forward to the future releases!

Feature-wise this is a moderately 'lite' version of OmniGraffle, but price-wise it's bargain basement. An excellent value for a very nice, polished app.

It does everything I need it to when it comes to sketching out my ideas.

Thanks for the great app!

There are a number of decent and *free* database management programs out there but I found Navicat to be well worth the money. (You might think it seems like a lot but if you're spending even a few hours/week managing a DB I think Navicat is good value.)

Unfortunately I'm stuck on version 8 because while the interface on 9 is much nicer, I find it crashes pretty much every time I use it. Sometimes it's because of a timeout on the server, sometimes it's just seems random.

There seem to be a few buggy interface elements that pop up from time to time as well (the enum default-value menu comes to mind -- it often chooses the values of the previously selected enum field).

So I'll stick with 8 for now. Hopefully 9.2 brings some stability.

I've been using WhatSizes for years. While it's not an every-day utility, when it comes time to do a little drive cleanup I'd be lost (or rather: wasting a lot of time) without it.

It has a great, easy to use, well thought out interface. It's stable and fast. Good support from the developer and continuously updated.

Thanks for the great product, Clyde!
