Worked fine for me. I didn't have the Weather app issue but downloaded the fix anyway.

Whole process took about 10 minutes for my 4S.

Just got this today through Macgasm. I had tried a demo before and was impressed, but went with QuickCal at the time. This new update is awesome! I can see my schedule and calendar with a keystroke. I can add items using plain language. It also works with iCloud! I couldn't ask for more!

It will permanently live on any of my macs moving forward.

In my unofficial comparison of system resources using Activity Monitor, Firefox 7 seems to come out ahead. While loading the same two tabs and the same flash video I got the following on my mac mini 2,1 core2duo 2GHz with 2GB of RAM:

FF7b1 - 360ish MB of RAM, 85-90% of 1 core
Safari 5.1 - 477ish MB of RAM, 100% of 1 core and 20-25% of the 2nd core
Chrome 13.0.782.215 - 435ish MB of RAM and same core usage as Safari
Chromium 12.0.742.122 - 445ish MB of RAM and same Core usage as Safari

All had similar tab and video playback performance.

Might have to switch back to Firefox as a primary browser when v7 stable is released. I like it when a browser can do more with less overhead.

Latest update moves this to the best all around video conversion tool for mac.

Downloaded and installed after reading others comments. The improvement is noticeable. I have received a few fatal errors and reinstalled. Seems to cause permissions repair hangs and there are some issues with multiple accounts on the same machine that throws a fatal error. I will keep it installed and running while the bugs are worked out.

When I downloaded the latest update it informed me that it requires Rosetta. Strange as it is the only software that I own that requires it. Even though it appears to work, I choose to uninstall.

A complete uninstall and reinstall of the new version did the trick.

Fo those that are a bit confused as to why the update doesn't show in "Software Update" go here,, and read the additional information at the bottom.

No Problems so far. I bought this app when it was a MU Promotion. I have used through a machine upgrade (older quicksilver G4/733 to late 2008 Intel Mac Mini) and three OS updates (10.4.11, 10.5.x then 10.6.x) and had no problems. At this time, this is the best app for the value - bar none! And it is receiving active updates.

Downloaded and tried on My Mac Mini yesterday. Works fine. The Mini is a previous generation 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo model. Considering the form factor of the Mini, this little app will come in handy when doing some mild video converting and editing as well as just keep the Mini cooler in general.

The app does what it says and is easy to use.
