This has been a great app since its beginnings. The ability to sync saved bookmarks across different devices is priceless. The latest version ads several nice features that make the $4 totally worth it. It is stable and responsive under both 10.6.8 and 10.7. Customer service from the developer himself is very good and blazing fast, something to value with Mac AppStore purchases. A minor (temporary) drawback (hence the 4stars) from version 0.5 is that sorting has to be done from the app's preferences, rather that form the pop-down menubar window. I contacted the developer, who clarified this will be included in the near future, along with other nice additions on the next major version. I'm totally happy with it.

Perhaps it's still a bit soon to fully rate this app - specially not knowing if it has any undesired effects on other audio functions - for example, it confused my Skype settings a bit. But I'll give it the benefit of the doubt with a nice one, trusting that it'll get better with new releases. So far (15 minutes) it hasn't crashed or visibly messed anything up... ant it does seems useful.

NEVERTHELESS, I did find something VERY INTERESTING: when active, BoomDevice shows both as an output source as well as an INPUT source of audio, in sound preferences.

This means that, apart from the nice features of extra volume boosting and equalizing - the audio of the computer and the apps running can be recorded very easily via Garageband or Quicktime X without any other additional hw/sw (e.g. Ambrosia's WireTap Anywhere or SoundFlower), sometimes expensive or complicated to use. This becomes specially useful for those who wanted to use Quicktime X's screen recording feature, which allows audio from every other source except the computer's audio.

Of course it's not as nice as using a dedicated/professional screencasting software (such as ScreenFlow, which is great), but with this hidden extra feature, Boom opens up a simple and inexpensive possibility to record internal audio and simple screencasts to those who need to do so.

IMO, this extra feature ALONE is well worth the $5. I'll keep trying it for the coming days, specially with other specialized audio SW, such as Logic, to see if it behaves ok.
