It's about time. My MacBook was waiting.

My first experience with DiscLabel was with version 5.1. I purchased it shortly after purchasing a LightScribe writer, because as far as I know it is the only non-brand-specific means of creating a full-face graphical label on a LightScribe disc.

It performs that function well, burning the label to a disc in my Pioneer external drive with no significant problems.

I appreciate the effort to link into the iLife suite.

I do not like the program's interface. Several parts of it look visually broken in Leopard, with random rectangles and shading scattered around the window. After using many beautiful Mac apps over the past several years, this feels like a return to Windows shareware in terms of UI appeal.

Other apps perform similar on-screen layout functions with a much better "feel" ... perhaps the devs should take a look at what others are doing for a little inspiration. Mac users like standard toolbars, palettes, HUDs, etc.

Also, I do not like being bugged to consider purchasing their Business Pack of graphics every time I start my PAID, REGISTERED app as of v5.1.2. Clicking "Later" results in me seeing the offer every time I start the app.

Basically while this works well for what it advertises, it feels like a Panther app that's not quite at home on Leopard in many senses. There are no functionality problems, though ... if you want to burn LightScribe discs with plenty of control over your label, you probably need DiscLabel.
