I use it to rapidly free-up space on my USB keys without being forced to commit to emptying all of the trash accumulated on my main disk at same time.

In the past I've used the Super EmptyTrash applescript. This App is more convenient & elegant. The App icon lives permanently in my finder toolbar. When I want to selectively do a permanent delete of a file I drag it to the icon.

• Excellent value for money.

Its a good single task app. Here are some suggestions for taking it to the next level of refinement:
• Would benefit from having a progress bar during deletion
• Also be nice to be able to right-click a file and select option to do a "trash without"
• Won't operate on items already sitting in OS X's trash
• The app throws up an awkwardly worded dialogue. I propose developer uses the following wording "Permanently delete the 5 selected items? Important: Once deleted items can not be recovered."

I'm really chuffed with this software. I needed to burn a DVD from QuickTime format. Most of my searches pointed to paid software or iDVD which is no longer bundled with Macs.

I need to not only burn the movie to DVD but also to have it loop. I found the loop option in preferences. It all went flawlessly. Good interface plus helpful how-to on developers site made the task a doodle. Thanks very much.

Excellent concept. The killer feature is the speed and convenience of setting timer. It's one click in the menu bar.

The big bug I've noticed is that the "exact" timer is not exact. It rounds-off minutes to nearest whole minute. So, if you start timing "1 minute exactly" from 11h59:59, the timer rounds off the starting time to 11h59:00. Timer goes off a second later at 12h00:00 instead of 12h00:59!

• Timer starts from the moment you select the duration. After you select the duration a dialogue box pops up to allow you to name the timer. Clicking OK on this dialogue does not start the timer; its already started. Solution to this could be that the clock could animate for 2seconds after the time has been set to make it clear that timer is running.

Takes a bit of getting used to the quirks of the app, but still nice to use.

I've just installed it on Snow Leopard (10.6) and have done some test calls to voicemail/talking clock/echo test. It works.

This is a relief as I've had no success with:
a) X-Lite as it's not compatible with 10.6
b)Telephone - Interface looks better and got good reviews. It tried to register with my sip provider and returned this error “403 Forbidden”, so was not able to use. My domain is ""

I was using Synk Standard and recently updated to Synk Pro. The interface on both products is clear and has extensive options. I use it on my clients' servers and over the years I have built up confidence in the reliability of it's operations.

Recently I had a need to contact technical support. I got an email reply within a few hours. Problem solved.

Thanks for a great product and excellent support.
