There's no need for this to be a package installer - because of this, I haven't installed this application.

BTW, what the heck does Friday being the 24th have to do with a software review? Today is Sunday, the 26th, and that's not affecting my use of any software...

I like the interface, especially the simplification. More importantly, though, this is the first IRC client I've used that feels like it's a real Mac OS X application.

Keep up the good work!

I'm not (nor was ever) a heavy MUDder, but I love the games. I think I'm about to get addicted to one again (I found The Prophecy at

Incredible interface, under active development, fast, and very easy to use.

Nice app. Easy to use, decent array of features. A bit on the slow side, though. I agree with previous posters that a full Cocoa interface would be killer.

Don't let the stars that'd be in this rating fool you: terrible graphics, crappy interface, but great game!

Nice little app, a bit on the slow side, but has all the features that I'd (as a fledgling developer) want. I like the interface, but was a bit confused at first by the lack of controls for creating a new project/task/feature/bug. Sure, there's both the menu and the context-menu for those tasks, but not having something in the UI itself isn't very intuitive.

Also, I put a fair bit of effort into creating my first project, complete with a few tasks, bugs, and features. There is no "save" button when editing a project, so went to close the window, expecting the typical "Do you wish to save..." type of dialog. To my dismay, the window simply closed, and the work was lost.

Easy to install, set up, and use. Works flawlessly, so far. Very nice preferences interface, the auto-decryption is slick, and it seems as if it's a part of Mail, not a third-party bundle.

I like the drop-down interface above the header (similar to that used for junk messages) to show validity, signing date, and associated user ID's.

I absolutely love the additional header display on signed and encrypted messages.

If you don't already have GPG or PGP installed, it's not as easy of a task as installing most Mac software. If you're not already familiar with public-key encryption, it can be a hard thing to wrap your head around. If you're familiar with PK, though, and understand (and use) GPG or PGP, then this is an excellent add-on to Mail. Sorry for the long review, folks!

I absolutely love this game! The colors and layout is beautiful, the play is just different enough from Tetris to be interesting and compelling. I'ts a game that I would love to play for hours.

Unfortunately, I really can't play this game at all, because I can't tell the difference between many of the colors! This isn't the fault of the developer, however.

I have not and will not use this application. I understand that many applications need administrative access in order to run properly, and I have several running (including Little Snitch, which has installs its own kernel module.)

However, I refuse to use a program that does not explain WHY it needs that level of permission and what it will do to my system once that authentication's been given.

This appears on the surface to be a normal, user-level application. Other mail notification programs do not need this level of permission and I find it hard to understand how the developer could justify this.

Excellent! I have dozens of SSH keys on my keychain and managing them has become a *real* pain. This program makes key management easy, has never crashed, and has never corrupted any of my keys. I love this program, and would *gladly* pay for it. Please, keep up the excellent work!
