With 1.2.0, nice colourful toolbar icons have changed to ugly Grey ones :(

I don't know how you did it, but this latest build has eliminated the temporary (15 - 20 sec) freeze I used to get when touching three fingers to the surface of my MagicMouse. THANK YOU!!! :)

Looks like SpeeDownload can no longer handle RapidShare downloads. :(

With a couple of added features, this would be one great app.

It could use a few options though, such as the ability to have it increase your timer in increments of minutes instead of seconds when dragging away from icon. Also being able to run scripts or even some custom events instead of just the system notification sounds (yes I realize you could just drag a script to do this, but it would be nice).

A few minor interface tweeks would add to the app also, such as being able to select a colour icon. Have a "TODAY" button to bring one back to the current date. add "preferences" to the command-click menu.

All minor items, but would useful.

I really like this app, has everything I want in a note organizer, except maybe the ability to annotate images within the app. However after reading their TOS, I have decided not to use it.

I believe anyone else who uses this program in a business environment, especially a highly competitive or security conscious one should take note of the following exert from their TOS, and don't forget that Evernote extracts all text info from any image as well:

"you grant Evernote a license to display, perform and distribute your Content, and to modify and reproduce such Content to enable Evernote to operate and promote the Service. (You also agree that Evernote has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Content in our sole discretion.) You agree that these rights and licenses are royalty free, irrevocable and worldwide, and include a right for Evernote to make such Content available to, and pass these rights along to, others with whom Evernote has contractual relationships related to the provision of the Evernote Service, solely for the purpose of providing such services, and to otherwise permit access to your Content to third parties if Evernote determines such access is necessary to comply with its legal obligations."

I've been using Stand for a couple of years now, and have always found it a great PlugIn for Safari. But with introduction of Extensions, I find that I'm only using the Webpage thumbnail preview (QuickLook) feature these days. Because of this, it seems like a waste of resources to have all of Stand installed now.

So what I'd like to know is if it is possible to just use the Hetima quicklook plugins, and remove Stand. Or is there an alternative to getting webloc previews?

Not sure what you mean by "History Flow", except perhaps that Hatima/Stand uses Safari's History to retrieve the thumbnails. And that works fine with Safari 5.0.2 - just want to know if there is a separate extension that provides this feature.

Been playing with this for the past couple of hours, but although it initially seemed to be a great app, it soon became apparent that it still has some shortcomings.

First an iPhone/Touch/etc app counterpart is needed, maybe I just missed it.

Next, Styles need some major rethinking. Although you can add styles in Preferences, they don't seem to show up in the style picker on the Info screen.

Did I mention an iPhone app is needed?

I also think there should be an option to tread tasks without due dates, as due within x amount of time in Smart projects.

An iPhone app would be nice.

Finally, an important oversight on the developers part, which I came across. When first assigning a Pword to a project there should be a 'verify password' box. Or at least allow the user to override the PW by entering the master PW.

Keep up the good work, and provide an iPhone app :)

I was really impressed with this app, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to have a countdown timer, or at least I couldn't find any mention of one anywhere. I'm also disappointed that the company doesn't even seem to provide an email address for support - I spent about five minutes of my time just trying to locate one, before giving up.

Because of the above issues, I'm still looking for an alternative but will probably ending up purchasing this one ...

Mail 4.3 (part of the 10.6.4 update), disables Flagit! So unfunctional until until an update is posted :(

BetterZip is a wonderful and essential file compression manager. I have not come across any compression types that it cannot handle, and love its flexibility.

If I was pressed to make a suggestion on how to improve it, I'd ask the developer to add the work progress percentage bar to the dock icon, so you can tell at a glance an operation's progress. Also it would be nice if there where more control-click menu options (customizable in preferences).

I was referring to the Finder's control-click menus. If you could add commands like "Create Zip from selected", "Unzip here", "Verify", etc.
