• About the "Vitamin-R" Screencast / Video / Tutorial:

Follow the "Visit Developer's Site" link above and then look for the caption: "The Vitamin-R Approach."

*Note: TubeSight, formerly "vlogsnapz.producer", was originally released 9.3.2007. The developer's name was also changed from Vlogsnapz to Mind Sprockets. This explains why I had difficulty (at first) finding reviews outside of

I had to search based on the original product name:

I am disappointed that there is *NO* detail about what this product does at the developer's site. I do not have time to download it to figure out what it does. A screencast video of some of the major "live effects" being applied to a video would be really helpful and time-saving.

Q: Can these effects be applied to prerecorded videos or only to live sessions? [that would be nice]
A: ???

If you're looking for a good product (that's easy to use) to create quick videos I recommend iShowu: (Version 1.0.2)

Last year I downloaded (vsn 2.6) and tried it for a month. Here's my Review:
( Note: Apple's built-in App-Switcher is: [apple]+[tab] )

(+) PROS:

* + Multiple Hot-Key Activation Choices
o + Right-Mousers can more easily activate it ( e.g., [control]+[tab] )
o + And Likewise for Left-Mousers ( e.g., [control]+[return] )
* + You can EASILY step-navigate through apps by releasing and pressing the 2nd Hot-Key key (to Reverse direction press the [shift] key as the 2nd key instead).
* + Right-Click an App's icon to see Contextual Menu Options (or use Keyboard Shortcuts INSTEAD)
* + Provides MANY Options you can set in System Preferences

(-) CONS:

* - Can NOT [esc] from it IF Hot-Key is set to: [apple]+[tab]
* - If you've just hidden an app and then quickly depress and release the Hot-Key, it re-activates the Hidden App. It should NOT do that. What it should do instead is Select the Next ACTIVE App below the one on top (which is standard OS X behavior).
* - Developer never responded to my Important Email Inquiry (and why I never bought it)
* - NOT updated since 7-06 (1.5 yr)
* - When Intel Macs were released it took 1-YEAR for an Intel-compatible update

Summary ( RATING: 3 / 5 ): A real Time-Saver. It makes app-switching easier & brings new useful features into this process.

IF the Developer was responsive to emails and updated this app more frequently I'd raise my rating to 4 / 5.

What would Help? Surely these Enhancements would be meaningful:

1. SEGREGATE Active and Hidden Apps into Distinct Groupings wherein Active ones are navigated first. Either:
a. Place Active on LHS and Hidden to the RHS, OR
b. Place Active on Top and Hidden below in a 2nd list
2. If you HIDE an App (with LSX) it should Behave just like Mac OS and auto-select the front most Active App.

CRUCIAL to any software purchase is the Developer's commitment to their customers needs and wants. If a Developer is not giving adequate consideration to customer needs; and is not planning ahead of the upcoming OS changes; then their product is not a worthy investment.

* Usage Tip: In order to confidently rely on the use of the [esc] key I recommend you NOT use [apple]+[tab] as the designated Hot-Key.

* How-to Use ADIUM instead of the Outdated
AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)

Why use ADIUM instead of AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)?

1) Because AIM hasn't been updated since 18 Feb 2004 (almost 4 yrs)!
2) Because you can use ADIUM to maintain your AIM presence online

ADIUM is not only Free (donations helpful), it is up-to-date and one of the top universal chat clients. Universal in that it interfaces with all chat accounts (AIM, ICQ, Jabber, MSN, Yahoo!, Google Talk, and more)

Get ADIUM right here on MacUpdate:

I've been using Overflow for 6 months. It is an indispensible tool for extending the dock; for organizing my projects, applications, folders and files; and for its Finder portals to my folders. It's a real time saver!
