Ridiculous price.

Version 1.0 was released more than 3 years ago but it hasn't been updated even once since then?

It's not made by a Mac developer who has recently expanded into Windows apps. Rather, he's a Windows developer who has recently dabbled in a Mac app.

Did I mention the dev's delusional pricing?

Do not buy this. Hell, I wouldn't even use this if it were freeware!

Does this work on Lion?

Never mind, it’s useless. Borrowed a friend’s licensed 3.9 and ran it on 3 Lion Macs, and it couldn’t download a single vid out of over 30 attempts. It’s sucked for several versions now, and evidently the dev just can’t bring it anywhere near to its former glory.

Just when I thought Keka couldn’t get any better, the addition of a progress bar has made it even more gratifying to use. Never thought about it before, but now I can’t do without it.

Version 1.0 also seems a hair faster than before, but just a hair.

I only have 2 things on my wish list. I’d love it if a preference could somehow be fashioned to keep Keka’s Dock icon from sliding up/down when I drag a file to it. If I pull the file smack-dab into the middle of the Dock icon there’s no problem, but I’m usually too rushed to hit it just right and have to fish up or down to get the icon to sit still long enough to nail it. Obviously, this is a design fault of the Dock rather than Keka, but a fix from either quarter would be welcome.

My other wish is for a new Keka icon — though it’s definitely creative and unique, it still grosses me out. I must have had an incident with a similar critter as a child that I’ve conveniently blocked from memory, but I nevertheless have a visceral reaction every time I need to compress a file!

But in every other way, Keka is a truly great app, and I thank the dev for his/her gift.

Every "new" feature and fix listed above in the "What's New - Version 10.0.2" section is a lie — they are the exact same ones listed for both 10.0 and 10.0.1. I am sick of these clowns and all the hideous decisions they've made and frustrations they've caused in the past 18 months, so I don't mind finally giving them a half-star review for it.

Don't be an idiot. Thousands of people are sick of this group's crap. Free or not, it's a burden, and there are MANY other options. So quit being a Boy Scout.

The "What's New - Version 10.0.2" listing above is pure bullsh1t, just like every other organizational, public relations and informational decision these clowns have made in the past 18 months. Every one of the "new" features and fixes listed are the exact same ones that have been listed for versions 10.0 and 10.0.1. I'm sick of these a-holes, and I don't mind giving them a half-star review for all their retardedness and the frustration they constantly create.

Didn't mean to post this twice, Safari 5.1.3 is behaving weirdly and not reflecting changes on MacUpdate for several minutes, even after reloading the page repeatedly after submitting a comment.

For me, after fixing permissions before and after using the Combo Updater (the newer one), rebuilding/replacing the root directory and fixing all files with DiskWarrior 4.4, and restarting several times, 10.7.3 is a smidge SLOWER than 10.7.2 on both my new BTO 3.4 GHz Quad-Core i7 27" iMac with 16 GB of RAM and Late 2008 2.4 GHz Unibody Intel 13" MacBook with 4 GB of RAM (both using the 64-bit kernel).

10.7.3 fixed nearly none of Lion's inexcusable shortcomings and bugs, like QuickTime X's extraordinary halfassedness, the Finder windows that suddenly can't find any files until after a restart, the retarded CPU-suck of QTKitServer QuickLook Helper as it constantly indexes and reindexes any folder containing video files when its Finder window is opened or negligibly altered, the UI's boneheadedly ubiquitous and amorphous greyness, etc.

I see so much potential in Lion, but it's really a neglected piece of sh1t overall. After nearly worshipping Apple products for 17 years, I think OS X has gone straight down the crapper just as Apple's devices-driven star has risen. Those listed above and many other Lion weaknesses (especially when running on an otherwise amazing $3,000 BTO iMac), plus the paucity of resources they seem to be throwing at Mountain Lion and the obvious indication that it too will be worth little more than $39 — all this makes me seriously consider moving to some flavor of Unix for my business machines and eventually dumping Apple altogether.

I too would love to see the ability to convert full-sized and even larger VIDEO_TS files to DVD, other formats, change PAL to NTSC, etc.

My brother has GrowlVoice, and I like it. But the one thing keeping me from buying it is that the menu bar icon is not positionable. I use XMenu and iStat Menus on my 13" Unibody MacBook, and along with the wi-fi status icon, they use up 2/3 of the menu bar (starting from the right side), leaving only 1/3 free on the left side. But, of course, any open app uses up that left-most 1/3 (and sometimes more), so GrowlVoice's menu bar icon disappears any time an app is open, meaning that I have to click the desktop whenever I want to access GV's icon — very annoying. If we could place the GV icon wherever we want along the menu bar then I could place it somewhere on the right, ensuring that it will always be visible. Until that's possible, I can't consider buying GrowlVoice, despite that I'd really like to.

Stupid question: Will Dialectic work with Google Voice? I assume that it will not, but am eager to be proven wrong.

Using "Special Characters" in Lion or "Character Viewer" in Snow Leopard (instead of the greedily overpriced PopChar) does NOT require any prior setup, and neither needs to be enabled in the Language & Text System Preferences. Both features are automatically accessible right out of the box in most text-capable applications — except Microsoft Word (the dicks) and a few others — RIGHT FROM THEIR MENU BAR: JUST CLICK THE LAST SELECTION (usually) IN THE EDIT MENU. It's that simple.

Even simpler, just enter COMMAND-OPTION-T, but only in programs that allow access to Special Character/Character Viewer from the Edit menu (so not in M$ Word), and only when you have a text-enterable window open (so it'll work in Safari when a text box is open, but not when viewing a normal webpage — you must be in text input mode). Cool, huh?

However, if you want to have the "Keyboard & Character Viewer" icon (which, bizarrely, does not reflect the Lion name change to "Special Characters") in the menu bar at all times — even though it does not affect any easier or faster access than simply using the Edit ➔ Special Characters/Character Viewer method (though it does give you a way of using Special Characters/Character Viewer with M$ Word!) — then use Bosskev's excellent instructions below.
