Five stars because despite its improvable interface, this product is much more than the huge sum of dictionaries you can download into it.
Very unexpectedly and amazingly for a professional translator like me, TranslateIt allows you to add dictionary search sites interrogation into its base by copying query urls + a variable -- and that is not even mentioned above ! This system can and should still be improved, but this is, by far, the best solution for vocabulary search i found after Camino + the "Multi-Site Search" applescript by L. Thompson. (Alas, Camino is slowly dying away, and L. Thompson's scripts have disappeared from the web with the Mac homepages debacle, so even though i have both, i direly needed to have a replacement ready.)

BTW Have been testing the product less than a week and not even bought it already, but after I had problems making the "Office Support" applescript installer for MSWord work, the developers were very helpful and compiled a special "French" version of the installer. That looks like good customer service to me.

Terrific, discreet interface, and very fast & efficient piece of software, my dream of an app come true. It strikes me as a utility Apple should have provided as soon as MacOS X came out.

BTW the site is down (certificate problem and i won't take the risk) I would be grateful if someone could point me to where Notify stores its prefs? I would like to use it on several machines.

Very Sad Update: now that the trial period is over, i can't use notify anymore as the page it takes you to to register is 404.
Same for the "trick" the developer refers to above, stored on a 404 page :((

Just perfect to save resources and avoid heavyweight apps like Itunes (except may be the fact you can't enlarge the app's "window")

This is a very nice app for small note-taking, much less heavy in RAM than DevonThink or Evernote. I rely on the latter for serious document copying and indexing, but for everyday notes you can then discard easily, Shovebox is the best app i have tested.
Three regrets (by descending order of importance):
The proprietary format of the database means entries don't show up in Spotlight and you can actually "lose" data by forgetting it was in SB.
The weird "update" behavior (I had to figure out where to locate my "old" database before deleting it myself -- otherwise the updated software could not read the new database.
The lack of export format options.

Great app. Just one regret: the lack of an "add new contact" button.

BTW, may be this could be implemented with code from the ContactCreator.service

Great app, a must. But for some reason, it doesn't show if you search for it in the MacUpdate search box. I found this page because i had saved it on Evernote.

UDPATE almost year later, after downloading the latest version, SC still doesn't work on my MacMini Core Duo under 10.5.8. :(

I still get the same message: "error -208. Could not copy Selfcontrol's helper binary to PriviledgedHelperTools directory".
