I've been using 1Password since its initial launch. It's matured into an amazing app. The new interface overhaul is clutch, and there's lots of new functionality. Easy to use app with really good functionality... Sweet!

Features seem good but it runs so so slow on my G5 running 10.5... the interface is painfully sluggish... :-(

I really enjoy using Together. The feature set is best in its class. I consider Together my 'digital hub'; It's where everything comes together on my mac. It is one of my most used 3rd party apps. My favorite things about Together are the tag implementation, the intuitive interface, and the import process.

My biggest gripe with the program is that the interface can get sluggish on my ppc and require restarts to speed things up. I notice interface sluggishness in Together more than other apps, but it's not to bad. On Intel I'm sure it's much quicker.

Good developer. Handles support pretty well and is excellent at fixing bugs and implementing feedback.

peace

I'm enjoying the beta. Really like where Safari is going. I love how searching history has massively improved.I think the Top Sites feature is a bit shallow. I wish I could just easily choose which site I want in which space. If you want a site to appear in Top Sites you have to wait for it to show up after you visit it enough. And if you have all your site areas 'pinned down' it will never appear at all. I wish I could enter whatever URL I want to whatever Top Site I want. I think bookmarks should have more metadata to make it easier to organize and find. Labels, descriptions, and maybe even keywords (tags). Tabs on top is still weird now but i'll catch on. It is a better way of doing things for sure.

I know about the edit button. I just wanted to be able to customize the spaces which works via drag n drop from another window.

There seems to be a lot of people with something to say about the UI changes. Especially regarding the re-haul of the 'Today' area. After thinking about it for a couple days I agree that they took a step backwards in this regard. It's not that I think the new implementation doesn't have some usefulness. It does, it's just that it took away critical functionality and makes the application less usable for a lot of people. I think they should find a way to incorporate the best of both worlds. Some people are suggesting that be done by offering 2 separate 'Today' views and enabling one or the other in preferences but I think it would be much more elegant and practical to re-haul it again with both views incorporated into one.

Sweet! It's here. Well... I didn't get everything I wanted in the first release but I can say flat out this is my new task manager. I'm not even really sure they'll incorporate the features I want, but for now this is the most intuitive gtd software out there imo. I wish it had a little more depth as a project manager and you can make hierarchies of tasks and projects, but if I have a project that needs that kind of depth I'll stick with making on outline with OmniOutliner. But yeah, this is really cool. Elegant. Apple like yet unique in it's own right. Can't wait to check out the iphone app. Happy New Year!

Just tried it out for the first time. It looks interesting. It would be cool if it had more advanced searching features like Devonagent. I liked using it for image searches and facebook but I don't like using it for shopping. Maybe if it had really good pricegrabber support I would check it out again for shopping. Anyway... it's a cool gooey but needs a lot more functionality for me to actually keep using it and remember it's there.

Anyone know when 5.0 is gona' drop? I've been using Launchbar for awhile. I chose it over Butler long ago because of its intuitive nature, good documentation, and good support. This kind of app is essential to me so I never wanted to risk using freeware because it's sometimes not dependable when it comes to updates and support (understandably). But now that Butler is going shareware and there's gona' be a big overhaul, I'm definitely interested in checking it out. I don't really like Launchbar's UI. Not flexible enough. It tries to hard to be unobtrusive and ends up being to... I don't know... tiny. I have to refer to the documentation too much to figure out how to do stuff. Features are a bit too buried in my opinion. These apps are all about speed, unobtrusiveness, slickness, intuitive usability, and as I'm finding more need to use Launchbar as I become a more advanced computer user I find it's becoming harder and harder to use the app. Don't get me wrong. The app is still really sick and in my opinion at least as good as the current version of Butler. But I want more.

Can't use the app. When I start typing it hangs and I get a popup saying it can't contact the Spell Checker. Not sure what's up. I have the latest build running on 10.5 on my PPC. I disable my firewall and little snitch but to no avail. Any ideas what's causing this behavior. Thanks. :-)

Removing the BZ2 extension did the trick! Thank you!

I tried contacting Objectpark Software 3 times in the past 2 weeks for support. Twice to the support address for MCC, and once to their main email address. No response. I'm having a couple issues. One is that despite the fact the I have selected it to not check for updates, it still phones home upon launch (I'm a Little Snitch user). I am not subscribed to any calendars, so I am sure it is making the network connection for reasons unrelated to ical. Second is that when I have 'copy birthdays to this calendar' selected, every-time I add a birthday to Address Book, ical crashed. It also crashes when doing the initial copy, but that's no big deal. I could go back to having ical create the birthday calendar, but that isn't as nice because I'm forced to have it create its own calendar instead of copying it into an existing calendar. Anyway, the most troublesome of all this is that they won't respond to my support requests. 2 weeks should be plenty. Especially when I'm shelling out $20 for this app. If anybody could confirm my issues, and let me know if they've ever gotten through to support, I'd appreciate it. :-)

Finally got a response. It seems they did not get my first 2 emails. Oh well! ;)

I have the "Type ","or"." to switch tabs option selected but I've run into a bit of a problem. Lets say I have the google search selected (command>option>F) and I want to start using the feature. I press tab to get out of the seach bar and it takes my to a text field in the web page (no good), so I press tab again and end up in the url field (no good) so I press tab again and I'm back where I started. So then I grab my mouse and click on the page for the feature to work. Anyone know how I can get around this without having to touch the mouse. I tried switching to "Full keyboard access" (control F7) but this only works on some pages, and I have to hit tab way to many times as every field/link/whatever gets selected in the page. Anyone? Thanks!
