Licensing is cumbersome. You have to download a licensing file instead of just entering a code. The process is very buggy. The licensing file works on one Mac but not on the other, I get an error saying I should re-download the file. I already did, still doesn't work and no reply from support.

Worst is that the application often crashes and always automatically scans as soon as you start it. There is a Cancel button but it only crashes the app instead of canceling the scanning so you can change settings.

I accidently hit the stars, please ignore my two star vote, I have never used this piece of software.

I tried the application after watching a demo video by the developer. The advantage over regular printing is, that it lets you select a specific area and only print that area. The advertising mentions lower printing costs due to not printing ads on websites and other unnecessary material.

But the fundamental difference between standard printing and this screenshot approach, is that
1. the background is printed, which might be grey or eveb black, causing unnecessary costs and
2. all crisp vector type is pixeled and way below print quality.

Both were not obvious from a demo video by the developer I had seen because the websites happened to have white background etc.

The question is, do you want to pay $30 for printing a screenshot or just take a screenshot and print it? The advise the application gives you, on what size (in %) you should print the image is sold as a feature but you can just use the auto fit function of OS X's print dialog. Maybe I'm missing something but it seems a bit expensive to me.

I bought this application on MUPromo and currently run OS 10.5.8 on a Mac Pro. The application offers three ways to back up:
Completely (a copy of your files), incrementally/regularly (updating only the changed files) and versions of your files (not overwriting the old versions).

I wanted to simply copy some files and later use the incremental backup to only update what has changed.

Unfortunately, it is quite slow. I think I will instead use Super Duper.

I tried it for sites like Ustream.tv and it doesn't find the video on the page. It probably works for Youtube, but so do all the free downloaders.

Very pratical as it does two things: 1. It gives you the option to open a window with sorted applications and documents right under your cursor, giving you a similar direct approach as Quicksilver's constellation menus. And 2. It allows you to open an pulldown from the menu bar with the same sorting. You basically don't need the Dock anymore.

Problems: Not enough customizability and very buggy behaviour when you change the color and the space between the items. Graphics and text will be partially hidden. The developer doesn't seem to care, and doesn't reply. Far below what I'm used from other Mac developers. Could be a great application if they changed their attitude and listened to the customers.

I don't understand what this application does. As far as I understood, it can't even do OCR, so it doesn't actually offer a digital form of your receipts, just stores jpgs. Why not just scan your jpgs and put them in a folder?

Not a review: I found this app at MacZot today in a bundle 40% off and checked here to see what people reported. There seem to be a bunch of fake reviews on the bundle plus on another software review of one of the bundle apps it was said that they hide their identity and can't be contacted. Has anyone tried to get support from them? They also seem to spam MU with tiny updates just to be on top.

Regarding my recent review, the developer has announced that both said problems (searching in German and searching for plural) will be fixed.

Jisho comes in very handy if you're a user of Quicksilver because it adds a Services entry, that you can call from QS (Period; enter Search Term, Tab, Jisho).

I also find it interesting that it (theoretically) understands various languages. Unfortunately it doesn't actually work unless you use the "broad" or "extra broad" settings, and everytime you close the app, it forgets the settings. But for English it's ok.

What I don't like at all, is that it doesn't allow searching for any plural forms, only for singular, as there is no plural form in Japanese (which doesn't mean you can't just translate it to the singular). This again makes it impossible to quickly search with Jisho if you select a plural in Text Edit or Safari and want to use Serives or Quicksilver to find the Japanese translation. I already mailed the creator about it but he doesn't want to change it.
