I am sure that ScreenFloat is an excellent App, but why is MU not listing SnappyApp as a very good free alternative?

Dev link on this page seems dead, though finds the site. System requirements seem to be 10.7+, not 10.6+ as shown on MU. In any case, does not work for me on 10.6.8. Shame, looks interesting.

I can see why Digital Science might feel sore about the degree to which iElements might seem to copy their Elements, and making the name so similar acknowledge this in a way that is either cheeky or ingenuous according to taste, but from a user's perspective iElements is actually rather good: it does not have quite the same depth of info as Elements, but it improves on the interface to my eye, contains some informal info (history and images) that elements lacks, has a better search (by name as well as symbol) and costs very little. It is also more up to date: Elements has not been updated in two years, and lacks a few new element names.

I like this app a lot. With the default settings I find the interface quite ugly, but it provides a lot of flexibility for fine-tuning the appearance and the behaviour, so that you end up with simple lists of to-dos that look just as you like, that can be directly created/edited/deleted without any redundant dialogue boxes, and that synch simply and automatically over WiFi with the equivalent iPhone app. I like it as much for what it doesn’t have as for what it does.

The only irritant to me is that the global hotkey is not fully global: it has to be hit twice when TDL is not in focus and once when it is, which seems illogical. Otherwise, good value and top marks for usability.

OfficeTime was my time-tracker of choice some years ago, and then I switched to myMacTime (which I also recommend: it has a different approach that might suit your workflow better), but once I started relying on an iPhone, a return to OT was inevitable: the iPhone app is sublimely well thought out, and syncs perfectly with the Mac app and with iCal. There are aspects of the interface which I think could be improved —and which probably will be in future updates— but generally I find that OT does exactly what I need, and does it reliably, and far better than any comparable app I have tried.

SnapMeasure (together with BetterHandles) is being redeveloped as part of VectorScribe Designer by Astute Graphics, who acquired Nineblock last year. So far so good: there are some enhancements and at least one removed feature (scaling), but it does look as though Astute are committed to future development.
