Don't buy this software, the PTH PasteBoard works fine, but support is none existent.I contacted the developer twice, never heard anything. According to the EULA one can use 1 license on more machines. I had one license and could not install the license on the second machine, contacted the dev and heard nothing.
Now after a clean install of Mavericks I cannot activate my license again, contacted the dev again and again received no reply.
The pasteboard is fine, but don't spend your time (and many) in PTH, there are alternatives ..
With this level of support I cannot rate PTH higher than 2.

Update: Paul (the developer) contacted me and did reset my password. Rainer101 pasted below that setting Anywhere" in Security & Privacy / General and restarting System Preferences or System restart, solved his problem with registration. Guess what it solved mine too.. Thanks Rainer101
I did suspect Little Snitch as well, but I stopped the network filter during the registration.

I have been using Vox for a long time time now, I hardly use iTunes anymore because flac in not supported. This beta (.96b) works fine on 10.8.3 with me. It is IMHO the best player that works for me. The new interface probably takes some getting used to, but it looks nice and intelligent. I am very glad Vox is not abandoned ..
The crashes I sometimes had with Vox were solved by trashing the prefs file.

Fetching .... 2 minutes
Grouping ...... 3 minutes

Beachballs, this is getting totally useless ..
But at least it looks nice.

I am looking for something like this, but seeing all the complaints about the not responsive dev makes me not even want to try this software. Obviously rolling out a V2 of the app with possiblibily for paid upgrades instead of listening to customers says it all.
That's what I like about MacUpdate, we should unveil the "Hit and Run" companies ..
Posting poor support issues is a good thing.

That's good Ferhat, support questions can be very personal and sometimes can't be taken seriously, as some comments cannot be taken seriously. I agree with that.
Information on Macupdate is usually helpful in determining wether a program is worth being evaluated. I have paid some upgrade fees that were effectively bug-fixes. I am not saying you or your company do that, but for me the best reason for buying a program is besides functionality of course support. The comments were not too enthousiastic, but let me make clear I did not have a problem with your support and I respect and value your comment.

Don't buy! It seemed like a nice idea a little snow whilst working. CPU: 14% and WindowServer soares up to 65%.
Does not work on my multiple display setup and crashed on setting the prefs within 1 minute.

Did I already said how I hate this App Store ?
Never buy software without a testdrive ...

After installing version 4.02 the time in my menubar stopped updating. The 4.03 update fixed this, but after updating I have had 3 frozen iMacs within 24 hours. I repaired permission, cleared caches, ran DiskWarrior and had again a frozen iMac. Yesterday I have installed this 4.03 update and the Typinator 4.3 update. Typinator isn't digging in the system so deep, so I am interested if anyone else is having the same issues.
There is a froozen screen issue after the 10.8.2 update, but this freeze was very rare on this mac.

I have tried the 1.4.4 beta.
Lost my library the next startup.
The UI had some quirks, like not updating the the rightpane while clicking the left pane.
Another bug was the ''delete snippet", it did not work.

I have reported all the bugs, and well there it is, the final version 1.4.4 : the delete button still doesn't work.

Ever since I have updated to 8.5 I have to enter my FTP password over and over again
for :
1. connecting to the FTP server
2. saving each individual file back to the server.

This of course is a very bad thing ....
Has anyone else encountered this issue ?
