More powerful than the limited Timline 3D by BeeDocs and much easier to use than Tinderbox. Able to export to a variety of formats so data isn't locked in. Especially, like the Similie timeline export for sharing timelines on the web.

Still has some bugs to iron out as well as some quirky behavior (for instance cmd-M brings up Manage Entities instead of minimizing the app. Not good to hijack default OS X shortcuts), but hopefully these things will be worked out in subsequent releases.

This app is good, but it has the potential to be great if the community and developer takes nurtures it to improve workflow, the user interface, and the features.

ProVoc has a great quiz and card editing interface. It also allows a 3rd side to its cards (which is great for Chinese because you need the English, Chinese character, and the pronunciation). It has very useful features BUT and this is a big but, the study algorithm does not work. Supposedly the program can quiz you based on difficulty and the last time studies. But in my month long experience with this program it did not seem to work. I kept getting quizzed on the same words over and over instead of introducing the words that hadn't been studied in a while or have a high difficulty. And this even after I moved the difficulty slider during the quiz.

If you're looking for a good study algorithm and a free program, try Genius. It works much better for me even though it only allows two sides to your flashcards.

ProVoc would be the program of choice if not for the algorithm issue.

I wanted GUI scripting so I compared Keyboard Maestro (KM) and Quickeys. KM's interface is much easier to use, but I found Quickeys more powerful for GUI scripting. Quickeys is also much better documented. I had a hard time finding real info on how to do things in KM. For my purposes, Quickeys FTW.
