End of life...
Acrylic sold out to Facebook and has abandoned Wallet & Pulp.
I feel ripped off as the Wallet export function doesn't allow for an easy migration to a similar product from another developer.

This is a great program and it is well worth giving it a trial run. I encourage anyone who is interested to also check out the beta version of Deliver Express which adds the feature of multiple destination hot folders that automate the sending of files in a way that many will find very useful.

As an owner of Deliver I was anxious to try out Deliver Express.
I am pleased to report that it adds the ability to have a dedicated hot folder for sending a file wherever one needs to have it sent with e-mail notification and compression if desired. The simplicity of use is perhaps the greatest feature but many people will appreciate the detailed history, custom e-mail templates and automatic reporting or encryption. In terms of speed I found it very quick while not affecting the performance of my MacBook Pro in any way.

I had some questions for the developer and I found Leo to be very prompt and thorough in his assistance. I deducted a half-star from Ease of Use due to the lack of an integrated User Guide in the Help menu. There are Tool Tips displayed however and there is a manual for Deliver available online which should answer most questions one might have.

This program is a gem and I look forward to the final release.
I encourage people to give Deliver Express a try and see if it might perfectly meet their needs.

I bought Raskin and hoped to use it on my MacPro at home and on my MacBook Pro when I am traveling. I just read the comment by ME2 and was very disappointed in the Raskin developers. Reading their reply was no consolation. This is a very expensive application for what it does. I would guess that most purchases have included some kind of discount as mine did. Even then I consider it expensive however.

Now I have no desire to incorporate Raskin into my work flow as I can only use it on one Mac, period. If the developers were aware of the unusual licensing restriction and the reaction among the buyers who were surprised when they discovered it then it is a mystery why the developers don't have a cheap second Mac upgrade license available.

At this point I would personally prefer a refund than a second license for more money. This is a clever little app and arguably at times it can be useful but there are alternatives that are much more feature rich that cost less. They also do not have the multi Mac restrictions that Raskin does.

I actually bought a second license which was discounted so that I could have peace of mind using the application on both Macs.

I would not call this an endorsement of Raskin by any means but if it helps the developer improve the program then it will have been worth it.

Re-download the app from the author's Web site.
