Still the best for the price range, I use it exclusively for conversions. And after all these many many years the developer (Thorsten Lemke) is still the most responsive developer I've ever witnessed (especially if you join the GC Yahoo group).

Just to balance out that ridiculous review from Bluestar which has nothing to do with the app itself. This app has been a great mainstay throughout the years on nearly all the computers I've ever owned and I use it every single day without fail ... sure theres been bugs after the version 7 overhaul and implementation but Lemke has been super responsive in fixing everything that comes his way, especially when it comes to his GC Yahoo group.

one odd thing I discovered yesterday is that changing the icon of this program (simple copy/paste via Get Info) renders this program as damaged and won't run. weird

this is a nice little slice of awesome, it really is ... I really only use my ol' G5 PPC primarily as a seedbox but its nice to have a modern FF browser on it when I need it .... pleasantly surprised on this accidental find

this has become ridiculous already with the version numbers ... I know I know, they're in someway trying to duplicate Google's update versions for whatever odd reason, but this seems too ridiculously obvious and glaringly stupid at this point ... I'm wondering why Mozilla is even bothering with a chronological numbering system at this point ... why not name the next release/bug fix Firefox 22VQa31=334&DEFTONEjam ? It would make about as much sense as what they've been doing recently

still runs like a charm now under Lion ... not too shabby for a program that hasn't been updated in nearly 3 years and has all but been relegated to abandonware status

This program was something I've been looking for, too bad it turned out to be somewhat of a nightmare. I set up only one rule which was simply to move one specific filename to the trash from my Downloads folder to my trash ... what it did instead though was move the entire contents of my Downloads folder to my Utilities folder which was obviously not even close to the rule that I set up, not just that but I was also unable to edit the rule once it was set up, and not just that (once again) it would continue to apply that rule even AFTER I deleted it ... the only way I was able to discontinue the rule from running was to delete the program from my system ... thats just rather scary in my eyes. And to top it all off this is something that the dev wants to be paid $10 to do? No thanks, I will gladly move my files around at random on my own for free.

One of the coolest enhancement programs I've stumbled onto to in quite a while. Unfortunately it took too much of a hit on my system and I decided to uninstall it ... with the amount of image conversions I do per day it was causing my system to pretty much come to a halt while I was doing image conversions in the background (GraphicConverter) ... if it wasnt for that one matter I would easily have kept it around ... so its sort of a bittersweet review/comment here. Solid effort by the dev though!

the new interface is quite slick, especially comparatively speaking. the preferences, which were always a bit of a mess, have been set up in a much tidier fashion than ever. a few features that I would always use don't seem to work though. the rename function, in particular, in the convert and modify section doesn't work for me at all selecting a folder or file and then pressing Go always brought up the Rename window that had all the parameters to choose from ... in this version clicking on the Go menu doesn't do anything.

But the thing thats most bothersome is the fact that I'm not able to use my serial number from GC6 which I just purchased on Aug 25 this year (just a wee bit over a month ago) it was said in the GC support forums, by Thorsten himself, that this would be a free upgrade for anyone that purchased GC6 after April 1 2010 but this doesnt appear to be the case, at least for me, as my Register button remains greyed out after typing in my serial#.

oddly enough I just read about this POS program this morning in MacLife mag, they said basically the same thing as everyone else here, why would you pay for this when theres so many free alternatives ... obviously they didnt know about the unscrupulous nature and history about this developer ... I was more or less surprised that this wasnt a product from the infamous rip-off kings, AlphaOmega

With the 1.1 update I'm now experiencing songs skipping ... that is when a song goes to play it plays the first 5 seconds then suddenly skips to the next song. The odd part is that it happens on every other track. Example: Track 1 plays normally Track 2 plays 5 seconds then skips to Track 3, Track 3 plays normal then Track 4 plays 5 seconds then skips to Track 5 ... repeat etc etc etc. This may be related to the new gapless feature (but thats my own speculation).

I was just going to record (screen cap) what I was talking about with the skipping and the auto updater updated to 1.1.1 which said it addressed the skipping problem ... and that did the trick ...THANKS!
