Sorry to be so harsh, but in my opinion, the powers that be at FileMaker can go play in traffic or something (I was going to say much worse, but thought better of it at the last moment).

I'm *another* user who was bitten by the v2 upgrade fiasco, and now to see v3 come out, with the same approach... My god, who are these people, and how can they possibly be so despicable??

Just so it's clear: If you're considering actually PAYING for this piece of *&%# program, PLEASE reconsider. You will get treated like dirt, and nothing you say or do will keep them from doing the same thing to the next poor slob.

Sheesh, unbelievable!

I gotta agree with the previous reviewer... This program worked really well, and had great promise, as ReceiptWallet. Then Mariner comes along and snatches it up, throws an ugly icon on it, and basically sets it back a year or more...

Now, they're making claims about working on it, making it compatible with Snow Leopard, but they still haven't fixed one of the most basic bugs [it has a nasty habit of jumping back into the foreground when it saves it's database at regular intervals; bad form!]!!

I sure hope they can start to see and hear the disappointment among the users, and get off their a$$ and make the program what it could be!!

Come on Logan, we know you can do it, so just get on it already, okay??

Looks like their site is under maintenance… Here's an email to try contacting them:

Wow, the tension is thick here... I can't wait to hear how this gets reviewed. Could be a game changer, and will certainly give ScreenFlow a run for its money... Competition is *always* good, for the consumer anyway!

Unfortunately, you just can't trust FileMaker anymore. This update should more rightly have been a 1.1, or even a 1.5 release. Even then, I would have paid a reasonable fee to upgrade. But to expect me to pay the full $50, SIX WEEKS after buying v. 1.x, is absolutely absurd.

Sorry, FM, I won't be sending any more money your way, ever.

Finally! A Universal Crossword app that doesn't suck!! Seriously, this is the reincarnation of MacXword (I believe that's what it was called), whick was bought by a new developer (Daniel Jaikut of Red Sweater Software), and he is being incredibly responsive to feature requests and bug reports. If you're a crossword junkie and have an Intel Mac, this is the app for you. Period.
