Outstanding app overall. Blows away JiTouch, which I previously used and appears to no longer be in development. Also includes features found in other paid apps, such as cycling through any brower's tabs (NexTab) and window switching (Witch). In particular, I find the window switching window to be a much more elegant and simple implementation than Witch. And these features are simply scratching the service of what this free app can do. I also greatly appreciate the ability to save a PDF that lists all my programmed gestures. Gives me great peace of mind that if anything happens I will be able to set my gestures up without hassle. Thanks for this outstanding app.

The one issue that I have submitted a help request for on the BTT website is that whenever I startup or wake my computer from sleep the BTT preference pane appears. I have it set to hidden in my login items, but I don't know what else I may do to keep it from appearing at these times. If anyone in the community has a thought, please let me know. Thanks.

I just checked the developer's site and on his blog he has already released a fix for the preference pane pop-up issue I described above. Very responsive developer. Great product. Thank you!

This application found instances of duplication, created a "backup" calendar to fix the duplications, and apparently did so. However within seconds all the duplications returned (via iCloud sync). In the end, I had to go back and individually delete each duplication.

I'm not sure whether this is the result of a limitation/bug in this application or in iCloud's syncing arrangement. Thus, I don't feel correct in giving any rating.

Hi John, Thanks very much for the suggestion. If this situation happens again, I have saved your suggestion so that I can refer to it when I use iCal Dupe Deleter to fix it. Best, M.

Among all the tagging applications that have I tried (i.e., Leap, iDocument, HoudahSpot, Punakea, and Tags), I prefer Tags the most.

Unfortunately, after three emails requesting support over the last month, I have yet to receive a single (even boilerplate) response from Caseapps. Since this application hasn't been updated since August, I'm left to wonder whether this application is still being supported at all. The lack of response I've received has also been the only reason I've held off on purchasing Tags.

With me, Tags has encountered problems when I have asked it to delete and rename tags (e.g. the file shows that the tag has been removed from it yet the file still appears under that tag category, etc.) and Tag Window has a scrolling bug that forces me to repeatedly resize the Tag Window as opposed to much more simply use the scrolling feature on my trackpad to go the the appropriate tag(s). There is also much room for new features, especially a Smart Folder in which I can define which tags are included (including non-overlapping tags) to accommodate special research projects.

On the note of non-response from developers, I am a license holder of Punakea, and they have never responded to any support emails, either, over a much longer period of time. So, while Punakea is by far the most similar to Tags in terms of feature set and UI, its developers are no more responsive to customer issues.

Finally, Path Finder 6, which has been talked about for two years now but has not appeared, is supposed to feature tagging. I am hoping this is released soon and that the tagging function is well-integrated into the finder.

Update:

Path Finder 6 was released yesterday. After a brief review of its tagging features, both Tags and Punakea remain far superior in terms of ease of use and functionality than Path Finder 6, which as far as I can tell, offers neither a Tag List (Tags) or Tag Cloud (Punakea) to easily view, assign, and sort through tags. I had been hoping for a Tag Cloud in Path Finder 6, however it doesn't appear like that functionality is there.

Update 2:

Within hours of posting this review, I finally received responses from CASEapps to each of my emails. They acknowledged the issues and told me they are addressing them in the next release. So, it looks like Tags is still alive and in development.
