Wow! Thanks for all your warnings (review, I mean)!

I was going to buy this until I realized this developer is conning customers with overpriced fixgrades and so-called "free" upgrades.

Just as I suspected:

THIS update doesn't fix the "unsupported image," maroon colored box that many Aperture supporters have been getting.

In my case, this problem cost me a $5000 photography project. So, without any choice, I will discontinue to have this app on my drive and will fully utilize Lightroom 2beta. Aperture is no longer trustworthy for anyone's serious library of pics.

For anyone who values their photos and the time it took to process them, don't use Aperture.

How wonderful it is that a developer creates a new software and it tunes out to be a most confusing, uneasy and featureless app.

It's adverstised that you could sync WHATEVER you want. Well, I can't find ANYwhere to sync files/folders other than what the app restricts you to. And as for setting up the second Mac to sync with, it makes no sense.

Chronosync is much better, simple, to the point, non-restrictive AND could sync over wi-fi, network, etc.

Don't bother with SyncTogether and BOY am I glad I didn't buy it outright.

Some developers probably feel that the more complicated an app is (or in their minds "feature-rich") the better. Not so here...

Pure and unadulterated garbage!

by far the WORST app for this sort of thing. It hangs, there is NO way to determine which separate NAMED catalog you're dealing with at the moment, and there's not even an pictorial icon feature to show what file you're dealing with... Oh yeah, it crashes to no end.

DVDesktop is a GREAT idea, no doubt. But please let it be able to play VIDEO_TS files without a hitch. It only makes sense.

Also, the control panel disappeared at one point and had to delete the app support and plist file to get it back.

But overall, great job on this!

When using Toast to burn data onto DVDs using the UDF option, there's always a delay and drive grinding/spinning when trying to access the data on that DVD later on. With Burn, that problem is gone! Burn is WAY more reliable than bloated Toast - I probably never use Toast again.

Roxio should either hire Burn's developer or just consult him/her on how to code...

How wonderful. They fix the trash problem, but now the entire app quits when you empty the trash. What's more, now Notes won't lauch anymore.

Way to go, coders! Thanks for troubleshooting, should have left Notes as it was.

I love this developer. at version 1.05 it STILL keeps giving me movies I DON'T OWN when I import from DVDpedia. Then when I do add a new film manually, it just grinds, griNDS & GRINDS. Nothing comes up...

this app just doesn't work and DVDPEDIA LIVES!

Developer... GET WITH IT OR GIVE IT UP. Stop charging for garbage software!
[Version 1.0.5]
