Overall I found my demo version to work just fine (Panorama Maker 5.0 running on Mac OS 10.6.8). Generally the results I obtained were better than PFactory, for example.

Pano Maker has better success with images that have defined edged, such as landscapes. I did take a nice panorama of storm clouds but could not get these stitched together properly. It was as if Pano Maker could not blend clouds. Other software has better results with clouds.

The worst part of the software is that a tiny red "ArcSoft" box was installed in the upper left corner of my Mac under the "File" menu. It appears that the sole purpose of this little app is to call home and eat up my computer's resources. I found that the parasite app spooled up my resources and bogged down my computer. I used Activity Monitor to track down the culprit app and had to manually delete it.

What a complete waste of my time and energy, not to mention my productivity too. I cannot give Pano Maker a very high rating because of the parasite app.

I use version of iGTD. I've use this program for at least a year and love it. To those that were having problems, go try again. I just check at the developers Web site is up and running fine.

I have not tried TM Manager, but wanted to give a warning to those that enable TM for use over a network.

First off, here's how to turn a networked disk on using the Terminal:
defaults write TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1

Now that you know how, go read this post from someone who lost some data / backup while using TM. Makes me want to go out an buy an external hard drive and not use my NAS.

Thought you might want the heads up.

This app was not on my radar for the promo, but wanted to give it a fair shake. I have to say, it smells like a Windows port, in a Mac Microsoft Office '98 sort of way.

As others have stated, this is a non-standard application that isn't logical to use. There is little that is Mac-like.

I will say that the drill-down feature was nice and worked well. The templates and eye-candy weren't too bad either.

One feature that is missing, and a deal breaker for me, is export to HTML. I tend to use a mind map program to lay out my clients Web sites and site maps. If XMIND cannot handle this very basic function, it is of little use to me.

I'll stick to the free OpenSource program, FreeMind.
