NetNewsWire 4 is a very capable news reader and well worth the $10 price. I'd rate it a full 5 stars if it were not for one very annoying drawback relative to version 3: The only way you can print with NetNewsWire is to launch a page in a separate web browser. This is extremely inconvenient. I really hope that they will fix this shortcoming quickly.

Crashed and burned on 2 Macs, both running Mavericks. Startupizer launched but could not import my startup items then, after asking it to delete the current preferences file, would crash. This repeated every time I relaunched it.

This a wonderful program. Yes, the price is a bit high, but it's worth it. Let's face it: would you rather create your controls in code and modify the code over and over again until the control looks good, or instead get it to look right easily with a graphics program then generate code for it? The time saved is worth the price.

I've developed 70 educational programs in Real Studio for use in the classroom. Many of these programs would not have been possible at all without the MBS plugins. Even though the plugins are amazingly comprehensive in adding core Cocoa and Carbon API access, the developer somehow has done a superhuman job of continuously adding even more functionality with each release. If you want to develop complex professional software with Real Studio, you must purchase these plugins.

By the way, before the typical troll on MacUpdate accuses me of being an amateur for using Real Studio, for 30 years I've developed neurophysiology research software in assembly, C++, LabVIEW, Prograph CPX and Java, to name a few programming languages, on laboratory minicomputers and several types of personal computers. I currently program in Objective-C as well.

I use the appropriate tool for the particular job, and for my educational software, Real Studio and the MBS plugins allowed me to quickly create professional applications that are used at colleges around the world.

On my Mac with OS X 10.7.3, Media Center's contextual menu items don't show up at all. Any hints?

BTW, why does MacUpdate force me to complete a rating on this program before I can submit a troubleshooting question? That's just wrong!

I downloaded KoalaCalc out of curiosity to see the fractions feature. It installed itself as root! All of my attempts to change its owner and group (via the Finder, Path Finder and the terminal) have failed since it immediately switches back to root, so I can't even move it to the trash. There is absolutely no reason why a calculator program should be installing itself this way.

I finally managed to change the permissions (by changing theACL), and deleting KoalaCalc. I hope that the author corrects this.

This is an excellent product with superb support. The developer has answered my questions almost instantaneously. For those with 27" iMac, MenuEverywhere is indispensable. It's saved me a lot of time and trouble by avoiding the huge mouse movements to the menu bar when I have multiple windows open. I heartily recommend it.

Excellent programming aid that's well-written. I can't imagine programming without it. The developer is really helpful, open to suggestions, and is a nice guy too! I've recommended Accessorizer to other programmers, both novices and experts.

CoolBook crashes on my Mac (Mac OS 10.6.3). I tried contacting the author on April 4 and again on April 7. I received no reply.
