I've been using PL for years and have been very pleased with it. I like the integration with Firefox--haven't been able to get it to work with Safari. However, the most recent release (1.4) keeps giving me an error message that the PL file in Library>Application Support is read only and so the app can't launch. I tried opening the permissions but that didn't solve the problem and I've had to revert to an earlier version.

I recently reset Firefox and have lost the integration between Firefox and PD. I tried to reinstall it but got taken to a site that installs Flashgot and it doesn't seem to work. So I went through the steps of installing the add-in for Safari and while I get notifications that a site wants to use the PD integration I cannot for the life of me figure how to actually use it. There are no icons in any of the task bars. Anyone help?

I've been using iBiz for close to two years. I chose it following a lot of research and having tested a number of other Mac offerings. While I think it's the best of the lot, sadly the bar is pretty low. I like the synchronization with iCal (Calendar) and some of the basic functions (time entry, reports, etc.) are adequate, the fact that you still can't create invoices that easily break out expenses as a separate subtotal is just frustrating. They've been promising a fix forever! Lastly, it doesn't have a companion app for the iPhone. They have created one for iBank, their sister app, so they have the talent to so. I'm jumping ship yet, but I'm constantly on the look out for a better tool.

I bought and used OT about two years and worked with it for about six months. I switched over to iBiz for two reasons: the iCal synchronization was more flexible but the real deal breaker was the crude way OT chose to deal with clients and projects. The such a fundamental structure wasn't there at the start astounds me. I see in the FAQ that a client-based structure is coming, but I think I've seen that promise over a year ago. Sadly, iBiz doesn't have an iPhone app and it has a crude way of dealing with expenses. If these two companies could get together, maybe we'd finally get a complete time and billing package for the Mac!

Logan--You, too, should choose your words more wisely. I did not "claim" to dump OT. I did, in fact, switch to another program and clearly explained why. I found shortcomings, much as you did, and am willing to reconsider the product when those are addressed. I shared my experiences for the benefit of others having spent hard-earned cash on several apps.

I no longer see iTunes integration with this version. Has it been dropped or am I missing a configuration issue?

I'm suffering from buyer's regret. I didn't find out until after I bought the product that it does not properly integrate with Exchange calendar accounts - of which I have four. Not being able to create events directly in BusyCal (I know the workaround of doing it in iCal and seeing in BusyCal) is a showstopper to me and nowhere on their website did I see an explicit mention of this. The other features are OK and return some of the capabilities of the previous version of iCal (I don't know what the hell the Lion developers were thinking), but not to the tune of $50.
So, those of you with Exchange accounts, carpe diem!

LOL! Absolutely right--I've strayed away from my Latin for too long. I meant "Caveat emptor"!!!!!

Maybe it's just me, but I've working with MailHub in trial mode for the last two weeks and I'm stumped as to how it determines what the default filing folders should be for messages. There doesn't appear to be a "Forget your suggestion, start over". Or better yet, have a way to force a recommended folder. I did get responses from the author but they didn't address my problem. Is there a user forum somewhere?

Turns out there is a bit of a learning curve with how to use the product. I bought it primarily for the way it manages tasks. The developer has been working hard to address my earlier issues and I look forward to exercising the other features.

Perhaps it's my setup or the way I'm using applications (I have quite a few open at any given time), but while I appreciate what AppTamer does in terms of saving me battery time, I find that it affects the way applications work. I frequently have the need to unplug from a power source and move my laptop to another room for a meeting. In the transition, many applications go into a hibernation station that sometimes takes many seconds to awaken from. While I see the option to designate a priority to an application, I would like to have the option to NOT have AppTamer put the app to sleep. Maybe I'm missing a setting. Bottom line-I would like to be able to use this app, but the problems are currently outweighing the benefits.

Wonderful! With this release I'm not able to connect at all! Keep getting a message that the service is not available or I'm not connected to the Internet. I am, of course, and am able to access the service using either Adium or, ironically, Messenger version 7.
What a PITA!

Since running the latest version (1.3.8), all of the downloads in my queue stop at 99% and refuse to complete no matter how long I leave the app running. Restarting a download has no effect--same problem at the end.
