If you need only to open ZIP files, then the built-in ZIP capabilities of OS X will suffice. WinZIP lets you view the contents of a ZIP archive, delete individual items (like the invisibles that drive Windows users crazy) and quickview items (oddly with a button, rather than using the spacebar). There are newer ZIP formats that OS X can't open that WinZIP handles flawlessly. The only thing I found that it can't do is let you rename files within an archive.

So, is the upgrade to version 3 worth it?

I just tried BetterZip and, wow! Image preview is automatic, and you CAN rename the contents. So far it looks like a much better program than WinZip.

I used Starry Night years ago and liked it, but after a while it appeared that they abandoned the consumer market to concentrate on schools. Based on Pettifogger's changelog, it hasn't been updated since 2011. Also, there are so many different versions of Starry Night that it's hard to know which version to get. I just received an offer from MacHeist that includes Starry Night in a bundle with some other apps for only $19.95, that sounds like a pretty good deal.

The latest version (3.2) doesn't work at all for me. I reinstalled 3.11 and it works fine. Not sure what the problem is with the newer version but movies don't show up in the list, and when I added movies manually they didn't convert.

Sometimes ArtView works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it's really slow or there are question marks all over the preview pane. I didn't have problems like this with SneakPeek Pro. I don't know if this is because of changes with the way Adobe CC files are rendered, or because of some obscure OS X 10.9 change. Or maybe you need both installed?

I've noticed some subtle UI improvements with InDesign CC, like scrollbar arrows (a la Illustrator). But every time I quit, I get an error message that InDesign has 'quit unexpecedly'. Same problem with separate installs on two computers (latest gen iMacs). I tried deleting the program (using the Adobe program deleter) and reinstalling it, and I get the same crash window.

There may be no viable alternatives to Acrobat Pro, but come on, Adobe, this is version 11 and you still don't have tabs and palettes like the rest of the CS6 apps? And why can I still not page down after zooming in, then back out, on a page? Or save a Word doc as a PDF and retain hyperlinks, as I can in Windows? Adobe charged something like $299 to upgrade from Pro 9 to Pro X, and they want another $299 to upgrade from Pro X to Pro XI, and for what?

So far, so good. BlueCrab used to be my favorite site downloader, but it's overly complicated and lately it hasn't worked very well for me. Also, I hate that you can't download again without closing your window and opening a new one. SiteSucker works, but it's too simplistic and looks ugly. SiteCrawler is simple to use, has a clean interface and just works.

This ePub reader is a joke, right? I mean, this has to be one of the worst programs I've ever used in OS X. Why can't Apple make an OS X version of the iBook app?

It works fine with Lion, but the UI is clunkier than WeatherPop. I'm wondering if the icon resources from WeatherPop can be pasted into Meteorologist.

This is more of an off-the-cuff snap review since I only used it for five minutes. But right off the bat I didn't like WebStorm because it is too Windows-like. It's quite ugly, with a lot of unattractive little icons, and closing a window quits the program. If I were a PC user and I had been using this for a while on a PC I might like it since it looks like it has a lot of features. But I'm sticking with BBEdit 9.6 for now (BBEdit 10 sucks).
