I've used this software for years, and been very pleased. Simple, flexible, adaptable. Then I installed v 4.


1) Maybe making space for a picture of each dish is appealing to some, I dunno. But I don't want it, I want the list view of my recipes back, the picture view takes up way too much space. Also, it reminds me too much of the new idiot-proof cash registers designed for high school dropouts and non-English speakers.

2) I have customized the categories list over the years, and had an organization I was perfectly satisfied with. While my old recipes still show the categories I had marked, and the category lists displays my custom categories, the new Yum does not allow me to assign a new recipe to any of my custom categories, but only the default categories written into the software.

3) Each time I open my recipe file, my custom categories list clones itself. The third time I opened the recipe file, I saw four iterations of my custom categories list. Well sure, I can delete the three extra lists, but guess what happened the fourth time I opened my recipe file? Yup, there were now five iterations of my custom categories.

4) No response from the developer after the email I sent.

Don't bother with v 4. You could download the latest version of v 3, but why would you want to pay money for a piece of software that is de-evolving? Find another vendor, or bite the bullet and buy a database to build your own recipe file.

I downloaded this software, paid the fee, and used it happily for about a month. Then I downloaded the update.

BIG MISTAKE. My MacBook, running the latest version of Leopard, started acting like a WIndoze machine inflicted with an overload of spyware. I had to restart in safe mode to uninstall the software. Wondering whether the file had become corrupted, I removed iDeskCal and downloaded anew. No fluke, my MacBook is unusable with this software installed.

The company has not responded to my request for assistance. Even if your computer handles this software OK, you should think twice about people who do not respond to their paid-up customers.
