Oh, even more awesomeness from this developer: he posts fake 5-star reviews for this and all his other "apps" on the Mac App Store. Check out the user "MasterTechImp"…

This looks like someone trying to make a quick buck with no work. It's basically what you'd expect after someone followed some sort of tutorial in "Cocoa Programming 101" and decided to charge money for it. It has virtually no features, and virtually no user interface.

As a bonus, the developer's "website" is just a weebly template with the template graphics still in place, and a generic contact form. No information about the product whatsoever.

This looks to be the best Growl-to-notification center bridge yet. They're using code injection to get around the limitation where all forwarded notifications show up under Growl and with the growl icon. This is a bit of a hack, but it likely goes above and beyond what even the official Growl 2.0 client will be able to do with regards to Notification Center forwarding (being distributed in the App Store, code injection is out of the question for Growl.)

Very cool.

For the curious, this and Hiss work very differently to accomplish the same goal:

Hiss essentially impersonates Growl, receiving all Growl notifications and forwarding them to Notification Center.

MountainGrowl is simply a style plugin for Growl that forwards notifications to Notification Center when active.

The MountainGrowl approach is arguably elegant.

Ridiculously simple, but functional. Does exactly what it's supposed to.

Not sure how Notification Center support got on the feature list for this beta. It is not listed on list provided by Dropbox at https://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=65893, which makes sense since it's not present in this version.

This app is fantastic. I'd be holding off because I needed reminders support, but now it's perfect. Pretty much packs all the power of iCal into a menubar item, with extremely smart natural-language event and reminder creation.

What impresses me is that I keep assuming I'll need to switch over to iCal to perform some obscure calendar-related task - yet every time, I find that Fantastical has it. These guys seemingly thought of everything.

In additional to being an expensive ripoff of tons of existing software, the claims the developer makes are patently false. The only thing any of the "features" of this app do is free hard drive space. This will have no impact on performance whatsoever unless you are already critically low on space. Classic false advertising.

Dropbox rocks. The more I use it, the more uses I find for it. It pretty much makes your files available everywhere and platform-agnostic, and it does a really, really good job.

Simply put, Chrome rocks. Lightning fast in terms of page loading, launch time, interface responsiveness. Attractive and simple Mac-native UI, uncrashable, and tons of extensions. I love the combined address bar and search field, especially the way it saves site searches and lets you hit tab after entering an address to search that site - this feature alone would make it very hard for me to go back to any other browser (I know Firefox has address bar keywords, but they aren't generated automatically, and you have to set specific shortcuts for each search - you can't just enter the address).

The incredibly rapid pace of development is also very welcome.
