OK, it looks very fancy at first sight. I watched the intro video and bought it immediately.
I spent a few hours organizing historical events in my study with the help of this app, and at first it looked good.
Then, here is the huge problem. After you add a lot of items on a timeline, it becomes very very long. And the only way you can move and view the time line is scroll, scroll, scroll, stroll, scroll...
Why? Because you are using the "Easy" Timeline. Wanna move your timeline by simply dragging? I'm sorry. It's an exclusive and deluxe function of Timeline 3D, which costs you "only" $65.
Wanna contact BEEDOCS? Don't waste your time. They don't give a damn about customer feedback.

A correction of my early comment. Today I suddenly found that dragging the horizontal bar works.
But another problem discovered. If I add a new item, the timeline will automatically jump to the end of the line, pretty frustrating.

Very elegant text editor.
But really hope it could support dropbox sync and blog export.
It's been a year since the last update.

Two problems:
1. When adding blocked websites, you can't add "google.com/reader", because the program changes it into "google.com"
2. If you are using Firefox, you will find that the blacklisted websites will be kept blocked even when you finish the concentrate activity. And you have to restart FF to be able to visit those websites.

In fact, when I first opened the program and tried the example activity. It displayed the remaining time as some millions of minutes, and I couldn't stop the activity. I clicked on "Done" and it did not respond. Although I could click on Quit to terminate the program, the first impression was really bad, making me feel that it was not a reliable program.

In addition, $29 is way too high. Websites like twitter and Facebook are the main distraction to me, and I can install some free addon/extension on my Firefox, Safari, and Chrome do block them (Leechblock on FF, WasteNoTime on Safari, and StayFocused on Chrome). Isolator can help me block distracting applications, though not so completely.
The real value is that it can open the applications or documents that related to your work by just one click, which sometimes makes a big difference, when you are too lazy to open them.

Messenger on Mac is totally disaster.

It does not support offline messages.
Sometimes I login to my account, click on a friend and then it logs me out.
It's the worst program on my Mac.
