I have to admit I was put off at first when I saw the price tag. But after reading their blog entry I understand. Due to Twitter's new API rules there is a very real limit to the number of copies they'll be able to sell, so it has to be worth their while. In an ideal world without Twitter API limits it would have been more like $10, but it's still a top-notch app and I am happy to support Tapbots by buying it.

As for the app itself, I was already trying out the betas and have been using Tweetbot on my iPhone and iPad. Definitely a fan. It's easy to use but very functional. Supports the latest bells and whistles such as iCloud sync and Notification Center alerts.

I certainly sympathize with those who say they want a trial version first. That said, I went ahead and bought it a couple months ago. Have been very happy so far. I use Osfoora on Mac, and Tweetbot on my iOS devices.

It seems stable and easy to use. Convenient to navigate using arrow keys. The latest version adds streaming which means new tweets appear almost immediately.

I've been using Cyberduck as my primary FTP client for a year or two now and have been very happy with it so far. I ended up donating, making it the first FTP client I've ever bothered to pay for. :)

I sympathize with some of the other reviewers, but I really don't mind the frequent updates. Better to be updated too often than to let security holes sit unpatched.

Others may disagree but I like the "set it and forget it" auto-update mechanism. I always have the newest version and don't have to think about it. I'm perfectly capable of updating myself, but the less I have to think about it the better.

Plus in my opinion this is a very good thing for basic users who aren't checking MacUpdate every day and might otherwise never run software updates. For most users, Google is doing them a favor by offering frequent updates that are installed transparently in the background.

I absolutely love Sparrow. Primarily I like that it gives me the threaded "conversation" view similar to Gmail, but for all my accounts and without having to use a web client.

Initially I thought Lion's new version of Mail might become my default email client again thanks to its new conversation view.

However I realized that Lion Mail's conversation view only shows messages from the current mailbox, while Sparrow includes all messages from the thread no matter where they are stored. To me this makes a huge difference in its usefulness.

Ooh, thanks for that tip Gannet. I'm still sticking with Sparrow for now but that is really helpful to know.

Thanks for sharing your work with everyone. You might want to consider different branding, though. Your use of "Mac OS X" and "iTunes" in the name, as well as Apple's own remote icon, make this appear to be an official Apple product at first glance. :)

Great, the new name of iControlTunes makes it clear what this does, but without directly using Apple's trademarks.

As someone who's perfectly capable of setting up my own server software on Mac or Linux, I still find this valuable. I like how portable the whole package is. It's nice to be able to grab a copy of the MAMP folder and know that I have everything I need to redeploy an identical config on any stock Mac OS X system.

By far my favorite editor. Bare Bones Software has always done great work -- BBEdit Lite in the past, and TextWrangler in the present. Thanks!

By far my favorite BitTorrent client. Very Mac-like, easy to use and has all the important features.
