Been hoping for this application to finally stabilize and become useful, but it constantly insists on hanging while updating applications with no rhyme or reason. I've emailed support and hear nothing back so I've given up for now.

If they can fix the stability issues this might be worthy, but with the constant hanging it's easier to just manually upgrade applications.

Hasn't been updated in years, but still works fine under 10.8.

Man, I really, really want to like this app. I know this is superficial, I can't get past the design of the UI, especially the fake HUD-style windows. Feature-wise and quality-wise this is a 5-star application, but the HUD window design really needs to be updated to be more in line with the rest of the operating system.

I hate criticizing this app, especially when the developer has been such a long-time force for good in the Mac software community. He seems to recognize the UI issues (as per the release notes), though, so I hope he takes this a constructive criticism.

@lvdoc - Oh, I've tried. I think I've downloaded and demoed this app at least half a dozen times over the course of its existence. The problem is it looks so dramatically different than the rest of the OS that it breaks my flow -- the design is so unappealing it's actually disruptive to my concentration.

I'm sure Peter's support is superb - he hasn't managed as a mac developer for so long by being a jerk - but ultimately I choose apps based on well it improves my productivity, and for me the UI is bad enough it doesn't balance out the learning curve & set up.

Completely essential. There's a reason Default Folder has been around for so long: the developer rocks, the software is stable and well-maintained, and it fills a huge hole in OS X's feature set.

This is great when it works, but it doesn't work at all on the new Macbook Airs, sadly, and support is completely unresponsive. Pity, as this has a lot of little features that BetterTouchTool doesn't support (like app-specific actions).

If you're using a 2010 MBA, I'd recommend you look elsewhere.

Out of all of the recent "new" Mac email clients, this looks the most promising. The developer is very responsive and even though the application isn't complete, it seems to work quite well. I'm keeping an eye on this one.

Just great. Developer is *incredibly* responsive and this product works very, very well. I used to use ShareTool but switched to this recently and haven't looked back.
