It is a pity that Quickeys is not being further developed anymore. I guess most people here know the reason: the programmer died and Startly did not find a replacement.
I am using Quickeys since many years, it is still running without problems under OS X 10.8.5, and I think it is a terrific piece of software. I cannot count how often a day I am using one of its shortcuts.
I tried other programs (like Keyboard Maestro) but so far I cannot see why I should abandon Quickeys.

Do I understand this right?
Because Blink might not work with my SIP provider I should first spend $20 on Blink Lite to check it out and then $50 on Blink Pro ...
That is a strange approach in my opinion, especially since Blink Lite used to be free.
Isn't it possible to have a trial version instead?

The latest version of "Zoiper Community" (as the free version is called now) is 3.2 from 12/19/2013.

A great all-in-one tool for Whois, Trace, Ping, Query, Finger, Address Scan, and Port Scan tasks.
One request: It would be great if the map could be made bigger and would also show some information for Whois queries.
Still, clearly a 5 star application. Thanks to the developer!

Version 5 is at least not crashing anymore but after trying it I can now say with certainty that this application is nothing but a joke.
In my opinion it is bordering a scam to ask $30 for an application that does nothing but displaying (incomplete) Whois information about domains that can be found for free in numerous places is bordering a scam. It is simply not true that this application provides any kind of "rich" information that "surpasses other ... tools".
I highly recommend WhatRoute instead. That is an excellent free tool that not only shows (complete) Whois information about domains but can also be used for Trace, Ping, Query, Finger, Address Scan, and Port Scan tasks. That is what I call rich!

... after two times uninstalling Teamviewer and searching for all remaining Teamviewer files (incl. invisible files and folders), restarting the computer and reinstalling Teamviewer again it now "behaves" again normally, meaning that I can put it wherever I want on my hard drive and it still works.
Therefore, back to 5 stars for Teamviewer!
(PS: It would be so good if Macupdate FINALLY would create a possibility to change one's own postings. This is years overdue in my opinion.)

It appears that the Teamviewer 9 application file has to be located directly in the Applications folder. I consider this to be a big downer. I have literally hundreds of applications on my Mac and have them nicely sorted in folders and subfolders and subsubfolders within my Applications folder. Not to be able to do that with Teamviewer 9 makes this for my from a 5 star application to a 2 star application (and certainly not an application that I would spend $750 on).

I'm using Skype since many years and never, ever had a problem with it. It's free and it works on all operation systems - this has not changed since Microsoft owns it.
Remember: It's free and it works on all operating systems.
To all those who are ranting about Microsoft: How about ranting about Apple instead? Why is there no Facetime for Windows and for Linux?

There are two things that I find very annoying in Vuescan:
1. If the application is in a sub-folder of the Applications folder (as it is on my computer - I have so many applications that I have them sorted in many sub- and even sub-sub-folders) it copies itself again and again into the root of the Applications folder whenever it gets opened.
2. In the process of copying itself into the root of the Applications folder Vuescan also puts a permanent icon of itself into the Dock.
I find both of these things pretty "arrogant" for a small utility that is not being used all the time. It would be good it the developer would change this.

I am trying to work with iDocument 2 and noticed that the application wants to connect to checkip.dyndns.org when it gets started.
What is this about, and why is it nowhere mentioned in the documentation?
on 22 Oct 2013
I posted a video on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Av5Uen-36M) that shows that iDocument does not only want to connect to icyblaze.com and checkup.dyndns.org but also to amazonaws.com and google-analytics.com.
I do understand that the applications connects to icyblaze.com and I kind of understand (but don't like) that it connects to amazonaws.com and google-analytics.com.
What I find weird is that it wants to connect to checkup.dyndns.org. Why and what for?
Even weirder is that Icyblaze claims not to know about it and denies that this would be happening.

... what I forgot to add is that I downloaded iDocument right here from MacUpdate today just before making the screen cast.

I just installen OpenOffice on a friend's Mac with OS X 10.8.2 - and cannot use it because it is "from an unidentified devleoper". How the heck can that be? Why is OpenOffice not getting the necessary certificates from Apple? Is the application not good enough or are the developers too arrogant?
Of course I know that I can disable Gatekeeper in OS X 18.8. But that is not the point here. The point is that the developers of this application should make it work without that - or give a warning to everybody who wants to download it that it will not work on a "normal" OS X 10.8.
