MUMenu stopped working for me within the past 24 hours. I am now getting the following in the MUMenu menu:

Error: Couldn't parse list

Is an update in the works?
[Version 2.1.4]

This app is incredibly useful, especially now that it recognizes drags from Dock stacks. I use it multiple times every day when I am moving files around on my retina MacBook Pro. It is even more useful when you only use a single screen/monitor.

Not only can I not recommend this app highly enough, the developer has been very response to inquiries and requests.

This is an essential utility for Apple's Mail since it eliminates one of the most annoying features of Mail. You can have different settings for different accounts and it just works perfectly. This, along with MailHub, is the the perfect combination for Mail.

I am liking wunderlist. It is free, syncs nicely with my iPhone, and isn't a complete eyesore. Sure, there is room for improvement, but I have been waiting what seems like an eternity for Cultured Code to add cloud syncing to Things and I am still waiting. I have spent some non-trivial cash on things for my Mac, iPhone, and iPad, and I hate having to be on the same local network to sync.

This little app is simple, easy to use, does what it claims to do, and is free. I highly recommend it for renaming files in the Finder.

I have been using iStat Menus for years and it has always proved to be invaluable for quickly diagnosing runaway processes, memory hogs, and for monitoring my network connection. iStat Menus 3 continues this tradition of being one of the most useful apps on my machine by adding a battery menu extra, adding moon phases to the Date & Time menu extra, fan speed control, and more. See:

The new battery menu extra alone was worth the price of admission.

I was one of the people who told Bjango that I would gladly pay for the next version of iStat Menus as long as they continued to develop and support it. For me, it was a choice between losing one of the most valuable apps on my Mac and its continued development. There was no question that I would choose to pay to continue have it. I have been using Macs since 1986 and more and more users are expecting software that takes thousands of hours to develop to be free -- that is simply not reasonable.

Because I want to be able to quickly see my schedule without having to fire up iCal. iDeskCal launches when I log in and it is always there. It also allows me to quickly add an appointment or meeting without launching iCal. I use it for much the same reasons I use GeekTool. With GeekTool, I like seeing my local radar at a quick glance and I like seeing how Time Machine is doing at a quick glance. Sure, I could fire up Safari and go to a web page that displays my local radar, but GeekTool allows me to see that MUCH faster. Sure, I could run the Console and filter out backupd process entries, but GeekTool allows me to view that information much more quickly.

This is a very nice little app. It is wonderful to be able to be able to use Expose to reveal the desktop and have a quick glance at my schedule. iDeskCal is easy to install and configure and has been stable in the few days I have been running it (though I wish the position of the calendar on the desktop was a little more intuitive). It will display any calendar, even those to which I only subscribe. I highly recommend this app if you want to have your calendar conveniently displayed on your desktop.

I've tried them all and CoverSutra is the best iTunes controller there is. I love it!

I am seeing the same thing with 3.5a3 -- it crashes immediately upon running under 10.5.1. I even tried deleting all prefs files and it still crashes.
[Version 3.5a3]
