Default Folder remains the most obvious system implementation/augmentation Apple hasn't usurped. There is no way I could ever go back to Open And Save dialogs without all of this functionality.

Even if this is the holy grail of fantasy football, $45 is a ludicrous price to pay for the opportunity to find out. C'mon, dev, you can do better than this.

Lovely fonts at the perfect price. No problems downloading or installing. 5 stars all around.

The app is free. Sending and receiving are both charged to your Mac account.

Default Folder X has absolutely everything going for it that you could possibly want for any software.

• Default Folder X fills a desperate need for flexibility and deep utility in Open and Save dialogs.

• Default Folder X is updated promptly with every tweak Apple does to this pseudo-UNIX system.

• The developer is present and very attentive, often responding within minutes of queries on their site, and pursuing solutions to glitches even when it can't be DFX causing the problem.

Chronicle has changed my life for the better. Cashflow is, increasingly, an unpredictable thing, resulting in fees and/or frantic trips to the bank. Chronicle has changed all that.

The interface is completely intuitive. Input obligations and Chronicle tracks them, flags them, waves them at you from the Menu Bar and/or the Dock. You can assign bills to categories/types and indicate how they're paid. Don't want to be bothered by bills that are paid automatically? There's a choice for that.

Similarly, inputting income sources is a snap. Once done, your entire flowing economic picture is right there for you, and surprises are a thing of the past.

As an added bonus, even bonehead queries to support have been answered virtually instantly - in the middle of a business day.

There is nothing not to love about Chronicle and LittleFin. Great product. Great people.

I've spent years, and many OS iterations finding alternatives to TextEdit which didn't try to be everything to everyone and weren't meant specifically for coding. Been using Bean now for too long to just be rating it. This app is the best thing I've used since System 8, at least. Clean, stable, does what I want and, most importantly, in ways I expect. Bravo!

This is the slickest, most complete contact software for Macintosh I've ever encountered. Installs, gathers contacts and their scattered info from varieties of places, bundles them together seamlessly and works intuitively. This is what software should always be.

Add to that support which is same-day timely, persistent, patient and wants their FREE software to work. 6 stars if I had 'em.

Everything about Sophos has been a pleasure to discover. Free personal anti-virus protection. Timely updates. Engaging commentary online and on Facebook. This software is on all the Macs at home - Lion and Snow Leopard - all the various Macs in the family and on the Macs of many, many friends. Bravo!

Beautiful. Works exactly as advertised. Lion Tweaks dismissed the atrocious skins in iCal and Address Book, cleanly and easily. The interface is straight forward, the developer is clearly attentive and responsive, and the software is free. Bravo!

Macolyte had trouble on 20 Jul 2011
MacBook Pro 2.53 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4 GB

Problems I've encountered:

The install restart got into a loop trying to load which I had failed to find pre upgrade. Force quitting Software Update was no relief, it just came back immediately. Booting into Root caused the box to hang. Twice. Being very patient dismissing no-load complaints I found and deleted the offending software and restarted successfully.

In Mail, Spam Sieve is gone. It's ugly already, as mail generated by Calendar is turning up as Spam. Ugh.

In Safari, my bookmarks are all intact, but none actually work. I mean, I can copy and paste them successfully, but clicking them, or pulling down to one elicits no response whatsoever. Ditto cookies. 1Password is a no-show which I have, admittedly, not checked out for an update yet.

I'm not jumping for Time Machine yet, but I'm glad to know I've got it.

On launch, this game drags my Mac to its knees. MacBook Pro/2.53ghz/4gb/core2/10.6.4. I turned off best graphics. I've launched it with nothing else running. I've trashed it (using game manager) and reinstalled. Can't get past the opening animation because I can't get real-time control of the cursor. Everything else - including all the games I've gotten through Big Fish - everything else runs fine.
