A confusing pricing model. You can buy it on the Mac App store for $29.99 (the iPad version is currently free) but there's also a subscription model for $6 a month. If you want something that you can use on a Mac, an iPad, and a Windows machine, you seem to be stuck with the subscription model, which at $72 a year is very expensive. There doesn't seem to be an option of purchasing the Mac, iPad, and Windows versions as stand-alone software.

This software is on a prolonged slide into obscurity. It's been ignoring the hotkey for a long time, requiring me to launch it (although it's supposed to auto-launch). With the latest version it won't allow me to even set the hotkey, which renders it essentially useless. Fortunately, I have Snagit, which works well and is being actively developed.

Was thinking about upgrading from iWork '08, but from reading the reviews on the App Store, this "upgrade" sounds like a real dog. I'll stick to Word and Scrivener.

It's possible to export files in Word/PowerPoint/Excel format from iWork'08 and then open them using the latest version of Pages/Keynote/Numbers, a workaround that is loaded with irony, and one that reduces the resulting files to a very low common denominator,i.e., one that removes much that was unique about Pages and Keynote in particular.

It costs $9.99 on the App Store, not $4.99.

Ran for a while on Mountain Lion, albeit without the music and requiring a force quit to get out of it. However, now it no longer even launches.

Apple appears to have removed the "preview all" setting which allowed you to listen to snippets of a whole album without having to click on each song.

File this under Apple customer disservice.

You'd think that after 14 versions of this software that Microsoft would be able to make an updater that actually updates something. I run it and it says I need to have Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later. Given that I have 10.8.2 installed, it shouldn't be a problem.

Last time they updated Office, I had to create a special user account to use just for updating Office, but this time even that didn't work.

If you're getting this because you want to use it with the iPad app, you should know that the synchronization doesn't use Dropbox or iCloud (two of the more logical solutions), but uses a very clunky iTunes sync.

Not that I know of. I think it's a "feature" of the program.

This program is a one trick pony, but it does its one trick very well. If you have the full version of Photoshop, you probably don't need it. However, if you don't Snapheal will allow you to remove annoying blemishes or objects in your photos for a fraction of the cost of Photoshop ($9.99 vs $699).

Version 2 is much faster than version 1 and the contextual fill is much better. Absolutely no complaints.

Downloaded the demo to try it out. Tried to add a client several times, but each time all of the information disappeared. It's hard to make further comments because all the other features require a client in order to work.

Anyone else getting the "update failed" message with version 1.5?
