Using it for my work and personal projects, I've been impressed not only with the use of ScreenFlow but also with the timeliness of updates and how open the developers are to suggestions. By using the Telestream Community Forums I can find answers to questions either from other users and often from people on the ScreenFlow team. They are good about fixing bugs and enhancing/adding new or features.

Before deciding on ScreenFlow I tried a couple other screen capture applications, and chose ScreenFlow because of the intuitive user interface (such as the timeline) and ease of screen-capture settings. That was back in v1, and v2 further assures me I made the right choice. The addition of transitions and mild video adjustments (saturation, brightness, etc.) make the app even more fun to use.

While there aren't always specific features made to do what I want, I can always use the flexible Video Properties, Callouts, and/or cropping features to make it work. The limit is my own creativity.

The export features are pretty powerful, especially now that they offer flash. The only area with a real weakness currently is the audio; the effects are limited to volume, ducking, and ‘presence'. However, it's easy to record audio with ScreenFlow, and easy to import audio.

There are plenty of keyboard shortcuts to use in the timeline that make it easy to trim media, move the scrubber, add markers, and add effects.

ScreenFlow is constantly being improved and it's a breeze to work with.

I got Radio Gaga as a gift, part of a MU Promo bundle, so I can't say much about the price. I'm not sure if I would pay $40 for the application, but I would be tempted. Really tempted.

I tend to like foreign music, a lot of which is hard to get from here in the U.S.A. Radio Gaga has a large selection of radio stations from around the world, including Japan, Korea, and Hungary (the ones I've listened to so far).

I've used the radio option in iTunes before, but the problem with iTunes is that half the time (or more) it doesn't give you the title of the song (radio stations on the radio and elsewhere online often give me this problem). And there's no way to get the music from iTunes radio (or other radios). I'm happy to pay for music if 1) I know what the music is so I can find it, and 2) I can find it.

Radio Gaga not only tells you the song title and artist, it has the option to record what you are listening to and send that recording straight to iTunes. I find it easiest to leave it recording then edit the selection later. In this one program I can find out about a great variety of new music, learn the song titles and artist so I can find CDs, record the music so I can figure out if I really like the music or not, and if the song just doesn't exist anywhere I can find to purchase it, I have the song.

I've come across a couple stations where it takes a while to buffer, and 1 where even after it finished buffering there was no music, but mostly it's worked great.
The interface of the application is really simple to figure out, and I like the inverted look it has.

All in all, it's an excellent program. I'm excited to find more great music!

Hi y'all, it's official, Radio Gaga is down. The developer has gone 'poof' without a howdy-do or anything. I contacted MacUpdate asking if there was anything we could do as buyers of now mostly-useless software (because yes, you can still get SOME things to work in it), but there's really nothing.
I am so disappointed, because I used this application a lot, it led me to a bunch of great artists and songs I love. It led me to buy CDs from Serbia, which gosh I really never would have done, because until Radio Gaga I wasn't aware Serbia HAD music. (If I'd thought about it, of course, but I never did. I never really thought of Serbia, honestly.)

If we were given a reason for the discontinuation, that would be OK.
If the developer brought this back, it would be awesome :(

Ignolopi had trouble on 23 Aug 2012
I need an application that allows me to control volume of applications independently. 'Hear' is the only one I can find, so I tried the demo, and was sadly disappointed. This is what I found, and I want somebody to tell me I'm wrong and that this app will do what I need it to!

Notes: I downloaded the demo from the developer's website. I'm on Mac OS 10.7.4, MacBook Pro 15-inch 2012.

Biggest problem: Volume doesn't go louder. The volume slider for the applications (in Hear) is already to the maximum, so I can only make things quieter.

Next: It doesn't pull up volume options for Safari or Screenflow... is there a way to get those to work with it?

Also: It somehow caused iTunes to mute. I didn't select any of the options in Hear, but when I opened Garageband, iTunes went mute. Had to restart. ?

And: When it installed, the music coming from iTunes (through the macbook speakers) sounded horrible. I had to turn everything off. I don't really care about the other features right now, but does anyone have recommendations for Hear settings on the MacBook Pro?

What I need is to be able to a) make Garageband louder, because it's super quiet, and b) make browsers quiet (e.g. for noisy ads). Bonus would being able to make Screenflow louder and Mail quieter.
Can I accomplish these things with Hear?

Thank you, much obliged,
~Myra (Ignolopi)
