Can I please point out that for Mac apps the "OK" button goes on the far right. This isn't Windows. Plus, it would be more normal to label it "Suspend."

Reasonable enough idea for a program I guess, but lacking in polish:

* The "Comments" box keeps the arrow-style cursor when you hover over it.
* The date pickers do not use my local, British layout. Every other date on my system is displayed correctly - why not this one?
* You can't view a file by dragging it to File Sleuth's dock icon. You can drag a file onto the main window, but visual feedback is ever given that this is going to work.

Oh, and with the MP3 rename facility, it feels rather like this feature has been chucked in to add value to the program. It would be better in a separate app.

This sounds a lovely idea, but it just crashes constantly for me!

I log into my account and the little donations window pops up. However, before I can actually do anything with the donations thing, the app crashes!

I downloaded this and rather like it. However, one thing is that it seems to have issues with sending Applications. When you do the app shows up all the indivdual components of the application on the recieving person's computer.

I do understand that this is becase you are actually sending a folder, but it is quite annoying for the person recieving the app since they have to wait for Schick to put up its notice for each of these files.

So far for me, this is a really nice little app. Dead simple to user, just tell it the torrent and away it goes.

One request to the developer though, (I can't find his email address!). When I first tried a torrent with this app, it wouldn't work. It just sat there trying to connect to the torrent. I realised that I had my firewall on and that was what was causing the problem. So I turned it off. However, Tomato Torrent still didn't work. I had to close and then re-start the feed. So, would it be possible for a future version of the app to check if the computer's firewall is blocking a particular port when trying a torrent? iTunes does so.

Why does this app use an installer? It only installs the application into the folder of your choice. Nothing else is installed.

Apple say you should only use an installer if your app needs to install components in seperate locations.

This is a nice little widget. Very polished.

Couple of suggestions - can you add an option that keeps the rating overlap thing visible permantly? And also, write the version of the widget on the back of it - this makes it easier to tell when updates are available.

Brilliant, an app that refuses to do anything unless Quicksilver is installed.

I do not use Quicksilver, yet the app refuses to let me do anything unless I select where Quicksilver is. I can't select it because I don't have it - load of junk!
