VLC is indispensable - not only on the Mac but on any platform. The only thing that never worked - at least for me (on Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks) - was the auto-update feature. If I select the check-for-updates menu I always get notified that there is no new version of VLC available even if there actually was a new version just released. Thus I always ended up downloading the new version from here and hope for that version to automatically notify me of an update. Would be great if that will get fixed any time soon. I admit thought that this is quite a minor annoyance compared to the many many benefits this app has.

@pedropanza : Thanks for your hint ... I have this issue on two machines - a MBP with 10.6.8 (C2D) and an iMac (i7) with Mavericks and Lion/Mountain Lion earlier.

I always wondered why ABBYY didn't offer a normal version of it's fantastic Finereader software for Mac. Now that it is out I immediately bought it on the App Store. It is pretty cool to not have to fire up Windows anymore to get a decent OCR job done. The downside is that this version is missing a major feature of the Windows version, the text correction window. So you have to export the document to see if the text was recognized fine or not and you can't do individual corrections. Another downside: There is a major bug. Changing text frames on a page inadvertedly stops working on a more than regular base. One has to zoom in more than 300% and then the frame tool starts working again. A real deal breaker if you have to work with hundreds of pages efficiently. I really do hope the guys at ABBYY get this fixed soon and include a feature upgrade that allows to edit the recognized text before exporting!
