You said you'd never compromise with the Mystery Tramp, but now you realize he's not selling any alibis as you stare into the vacuum of his eyes and ask him, "Do you want to make a deal?"

So you hit "Download Now" and you're sent to a page that insists on a $10 donation before you can download now. Is that really a donation?

Worst. Screen. Shot. Ever.

Camino has been my number one browser for years now. It has the features I need and none of the ones I wouldn't use anyway. It zips through web pages. It has a clear, concise interface. And it seems to be far more responsive to basic menu commands than Safari and Firefox.

Although this app says it's "free," there appears to be a 15-document limit, which is lifted once the user pays $9.95. I wrote the author about the confusion, but there's been no reply.

Really nice app, even with the limitation.

This does a great job at what it says it does: It syncs two folders. Great for simple backups. Well worth a donation. My only quibble is that some of the options could be better explained. It lacks its own help file and the online FAQ could be clearer. Even so, it does a great job.

Ummm ... This was added to MacUpdate on 11/25/09 but the version expired on 11/24/09. Unplayable.

Third time's the charm. Bejeweled knockoff. Pleasant.

Shrook has become my default RSS reader. Part of that, I'll admit, is by default. Vienna isn't quite there yet and I'm not ready to pay for a reader, so that lets out a dozen other candidates.

I like the way Shrook lets you cursor around the screen. I like it's four-paned interface, but I use a 21-inch monitor; it might stink on a much narrower monitor.

And I like how it doesn't try to display Web pages and leaves that to a browser.

I had some issues trying to set up my preferences. It crashed several times as I made changes, but once they were set up, Shrook has been solid.

This app offers great promise, but it needs lots of polish.

1) We "save" data, we don't "write" it. Technically, the programmer might be right, but a lot of users will be confused at first (like me).

2) Font, font size, color and opacity settings take up prominent screen space and should be behind a menu. Most people will set these things once and forget them.

3) The startup routine is confusing. The software wants a database right up front, but it's slow to respond to the command to find one.

4) As a "digital filing system," it would be great if it could store external files, like scans and PDFs.

Looking forward to future versions.

One of the few positive things I remember about a job I had where I was moving files around a pre-networked office was that Norton Commander made the job a lot easier. muCommander does a good job of presenting a Norton Commander style presentation of your hard disk, and a lot more besides. You'll see lots of things in this app that you'll wish the Finder included.

BTW, this needs X11.
