No desktop sync unless you pay for their service. I don't care how many free GB they offer. If I can't sync between desktop and iOS devices, it's worthless to me. I'll happily stick with DropBox for now.

This version appears to be permanently DOA on Mountain Lion. The Dymo site lists a more recent version -- 8.4.2, from 01-Nov-2012 -- which might work under Mountain Lion 10.8.2 with models more recent than the LabelWriter 400. Good luck.

Appears to work just fine -- eerily fine. If it's so easy to enable this, why the heck did Apple take it away? It's the one thing I miss from MobileMe.

... and two years, to the day, after the last review...

Looks nice, and works fine an older machine under Snow Leopard... but is it just me, or does this not launch at all under Mountain Lion 10.8.1?

Tiny and lightweight. Not configurable, but what it does, it does well. Not sure that I'd want to use it in a short or cramped menu bar, but @1680 pixels wide, even long song titles aren't a problem.

Installed it about a week ago. Everything worked on the first try, and continues to work perfectly now under 10.8.1. Nice return of color throughout, not just in Finder sidebars! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for restoring the visual cues that a hyper-visual guy like me needs.

It's unworking. A nice idea to save a bit of menu bar space, but as of version 1.0, it seems to remain only an idea.

This isn't optimization. This is deleting some hidden files. Optimization usually refers to rearranging the bits to cluster and defragment files and to cluster and defragment free space -- though how much of a real-world impact that would have on USB memory stick performance anyway (which, remember, this utility doesn't do), is debatable.

Moreover, these tiny files are just going to be recreated the next time one mounts the USB memory device. It's ultimately a futile exercise, since the reclaimed space is only "there" when the device is NOT mounted, and therefore unavailable anyway.

Simple, functional, and free. I was afraid this was dead with the advent of Lion, but here we are with a update only one day later. Thank you!

It usually worked pretty well for me. Generally better than ChickenOfTheVNC... but $40 better? No. That price is utterly ridiculous.

For my own simple needs, Leopard and Snow Leopard's screen sharing between my systems is perfectly adequate, so I won't miss JollysFast. For anyone who depended on a more robust client, I can sympathize with both the need to charge and the outrage over the price. $40 is simply obscene. $10 would probably sell more than 4x as many licenses AND not incur the public backlash.

Great little app, extremely poor pricing decision.
