Sad to see that this is AppStore only now. So without the AppStore existing customers are left behind.

As this company tries to force me into the MacAppStore I just deleted this application. It was never that good that I really used it but MAS only is a NoGo. Sorry, you just lost a customer

I really love MailSmith and hope that it stay what it is: A tool for the pros. There are enough tool/apps with blinking elements and funny popups but without all the features needed by the pros.
Mailsmith is the ONLY mail program I know (and I have tested a lot if not all for Mac) that can handle my 420 SMTP accounts combined with just 1 POP3 account. It can pass all my mails through my own scripts using the shell. It's one of really few clients that displays raw content without all these stupid HTML-Elements. If you request HTML you also want to have a build security hole. I don't want my mail in HTML.
And Mailsmith is really fast. I have over 5000 mails in my archives and can search in < 30sec in all these mails for any term.

Summed up: Mailsmith is for the pros. If you search an 'app' don't use this as this program provides features not fun. Without some knowledge in POP3,SMTP,Shell,RegEx.. you possibly even don't know what to do with all these features.

Bought this years ago for a lot of money and although it's free now I don't regret that I payed for it.

As a long time user of ForeverSave I was surprised that the update to version 2 is free. The last version saved me hours (not to say weeks) of work. Was working on a manual for over a week and the through an error the whole manual including the backup file was destroyed. After a few minutes crying and beating my monitor I remembered that I had installed ForeverSave (you never really notive that it's working in the background). Took me just seconds to get the latest working version back and thus saved me lots of rewriting all the text. I also love that it's possible to config each application with different settings.

As a longtime LittleSnitch user I also tried (and now use) this great tool. I'm now using Hands Off! for some month and never had any problems with it. Worked as expected and never causes any stability problems. The best thing is that you can install Hands Off and LS and both work together. If I someday have to deceide if I keep LS or Hands Off on it's for 100% Hands Off I will keep as it offers much better control over what an application can access.
Great is also that the developer answered my mails (with new features suggested) on the same day. So 5 starts for customer service too :-)

I don't like to give less than 3 stars but the current iLife '11 is a 0 star product.

There may be many cool features hiding in all those apps but I tried everything for about a week now and iMove is just crashing or brings the whole system to a fatal hold. Can't access my Aperture library - copied everything into a fresh iPhoto 11 library (this took about 9h!)
Now the new iPhoto library is displayed in iMovie but if i try to open it just a spinning wheel ending with a crash after a few minutes.

iLife '11 is simply unusable for me so I cant test any of those new features as in first place I can't access any of my movies without crashing. And while playing around with another movie directly imported iMovie just freezed the whole system while crashing. I just tried to change the duration of that clip.

I'm not sure if anyone at Apple ever tested any of these apps?

This application may work just fine but where is the difference to encrypted dmg? There is no need to use filefault to encrypt the whole home folder. You can add as many encrypted dmg files as you like. Just open Apple's disk utility and create a new 500mb dmg file for whatever you like. This dmg than even work from an USB device on any Mac as this is a BUILD IN OS X FEATURE...
