What has happened here? A great piece of software that was extremely useful, quick and easy to use, especially for currency conversions seems to have bitten the dust (my currency conversions no longer work!).

As the last reviewer points out, the web site seems to have completely vanished off the planet. SHAME!

Whoa! What have Black Pixel gone and done here!

With the imminent demise of Google Synching and so many user presumably still using Snow Leopard, why have they gone and dropped support for us.

It really seems they don't care about their users, unlike Brent Simmons, who when you had an issue pulled out all the stops to fix things.

This is what happens when a company purchases something just to have it in their portfolio, with no intention of improving the product.

Impressive but lacks certain parameters it says it can do in the description!

I bought this via the Mac App Store for the main reason that it stated it can import photos from both iPhoto and Aperture which would save me quite a bit of time. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be able to do this, at least not the way I would have expected.

Outlined below is the only way I could achieve this. Hope this helps anyone who is trying to import images from iPhoto (haven't tried Aperture yet, but would think it's the same workaround).

First you have to launch iPhoto, select the image you want and click'n'drag it into the 'Drag'n'drop' window of Snapheal. After doing what you need to to your photograph you can export it back to iPhoto.

It's not the way the description states it, which seems much simpler, but at the moment until I hear back from the developer, it's the only solution I have found.

Overall, the results are very good, as long as you try to be as accurate as possible in outlining the objects you want to remove. Some image scarring can be left behind but by doing another edit on the same area seems to clean things up perfectly with no noticeable before-image residue.

Glad to see the BBC feed finally sorted out!

It's such a shame that Black Pixel still after all this time cannot get it to sync properly with Google Reader. I'm continuously having to quit and relaunch just so I can have updated articles, even though an earlier update said that this had been sorted out. Obviously Not!

Come on Black Pixel, please get this fixed once and for all.

I've been using NetNewsWire since 2005 (version 2.0) and overall it has been a pleasure to use, clean UI, easy to navigate between the many feeds that I have and the window panes are clearly laid out so I can visibly see what I am searching for or reading.

My biggest bugbear with this program in its present state is the lack of support that the relatively new owners 'Black Pixel' seem to put into it and how with this new update all that they have done is window dress it for the new Apple operating system 'Mountain Lion', when there are still various serious issues outstanding such as, continuous spinning synch wheel that only works after repeated quits and relaunches; the BBC feed issue has still not been corrected and how I can only view flash video by having to right-click on flash settings every time I want to view a video within a feed.

Unfortunately, ever since the original developer sold it, I cannot remember what version it was then all the new owners seem to have done is to sit back and have their users talk a lot in their discussion forum about inherent problems and from what I can see from the emails that I read no real progress is made to fixing these issues, more is said about workarounds to the problem.

In my humble opinion (not being a developer), this is not the way that a company should go about this. They should look into these issues and get them fixed as the previous owner used to do.

Looked useful, so I downloaded it and all I get is constant crashing upon launching.

Running OS X v10.6.8 on a 24inch Intel iMac, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.16 GHz, with 2.5 GB of memory.

I have placed this in the Applications folder. Nothing seems to work!

Ever since I purchased this program, when it was v2.2.1, I've had no problems with it (thought it was great!) but on downloading and installing v2.5, it no longer seems to work. It cannot access anything on my iPhone 3G!

Sent an email asking for support to this problem. Hope they reply soon, as I am stuck at the moment.

Purchased this plug-in hoping to use it's functions within Apple Mail v5.3 OS X Lion, but unfortunately it does not work!

After installing and launching mail SendLater is placed in Mail Bundles (Disabled) folder.

Hope someone has suggestions as to hoe I can fix this.
