[Version 5.6.2]

I have a Panasonic GH2 and have been looking for something like this! I looked at numerous converters, but most required knowing what I was doing. ;-)

ReWrapAVCHD does dead-simple conversions with no apparent loss of video quality and most importantly, NO HEADACHES!

It really couldn't be simpler to use. Drag & Drop conversion works great. A dialogue box open every time and shows only 2 options: Delete the original file and Open the converted file with QuickTIme Player. That's it!

Now I'll shoot more video!

BdCalendar has a lot going for it.

Access to addresses, calendar, notes, todos, etc. directly from the Menu Bar. It's actually quite powerful with an overly complex, cluttered and confusing interface, plus some downright ugly icons and buttons. There are some odd window and menu behaviors as well and a lack of consistency. Fonts cannot be changed. (a MAJOR negative)

The interface reminds me of DateBk on the Palm and iClock on Mac OS X. Apps that tried to do too much for their own good (I used both for years).

BdCalendar has A LOT of features and power, but it's hampered by a convoluted interface If the developer would seriously sit down, streamline and clean things up, he'd have one helluva utility. For now, it's worth looking at and some may like it. The price is good.

Try PTHVolume. Not only does it allow you to switch between connected audio sources and outputs, it also adds separate volume sliders for each one. I've used it for years and it's excellent.

I stumbled across TotalFinder the other day. It's flat-out excellent; simple, clean, unobtrusive and uncluttered.

This is the sort of interface enhancement that belongs in a long line of third-party enhancements that have become essential such as; SuperClock, WindowShade, FinderPop and Default Folder X.

As an Alpha release, it's even more impressive. With a few more tweaks and a few more keyboard commands, I'll gladly pay whatever price the author asks!
[Version 0.8]

Excellent upgrade!
The new app, preference pane, widget and plug-in browser is brilliant! The new UI is beautiful, too! They obviously worked hard to make it even better than before.

I've been using AppZapper for ages. Sure, I've tried all the other uninstall utilities, but AppZapper is thorough, quick and hitting the ZAP button is extremely satisfying!

AppZapper is actually an excellent troubleshooting tool, when hunting down and deleting preference files that would be a slog doing through the Finder.

It's nice that the upgrade is free!

Wow. That was brutal!

MenuCalendarClock iCal 4.1 completely choked my machine. It took a good while to be able to force quit 4.1, reload 4.0 from a disk image and reboot. I'm still running Mac OS X 10.5.8.

It took some real skill to write an application that will bring down Mac OS X!

This thing is better than I had hoped.

I use the Glims Safari plug-in to reload multiple browser windows, with multiple tabs open in each. After quitting Safari or logging out, it can take a minute or more to reload all my tabs (sometimes 20 or more). ClicktoFlash cut that time down to mere seconds. I was stunned at how quickly I was able to actually use Safari again after relaunching.

I have no idea about the stability of the thing at this point, but it feels like I got my browser back!

Great little Application!

It's not as feature laden as Google Earth, but it's extremely small and allows you to access Google Maps without a browser and view maps at nearly full screen, unlike the Google Maps browser page! It also adds topographical (Physical) maps, which is a fantastic addition!

An excellent start for a version 1.0 application!

I really like The Hit List. Better than Things and better than OmniFocus. However, without an iPhone/iPod touch version that syncs with Mac desktop software, it's virtually useless for me.

I was a LONG time Palm OS user and NEED a handheld organizational app that allows me to do the heavy lifting work on my Mac, sync, then add and tweak a bit on my iPod touch.

I really WANTED to be able to use THL, but since the Potion Factory refuses to commit to an iPhone/iPod touch OS version, I was forced to go with OmniFocus. Bummer.
