This program is one of the best commercial utilities on the market. I have used it for many years on multiple sites with absolutely no problems.

I am upgrading my former rating of Disklens, which was based on incorrect information.

The app will not launch for me (OS 10.8.2). It does not show up in the doc, and must be force quit by hunting it down in Activity Monitor. Not fun.

Sorry,I did not see that information in the documentation.

I reviewed this app sometime in 2010, and have since revisited the app and revised my appraisal from in the pits to 4.5 stars.

The problems were mostly that I did not want to take the time to read the directions. Although complex, the app now makes really good sense and works as claimed.

The way I use it is to set Firefox as the primary source browser, add all my new book marks to it, and simply let BookMacster keep the others in synch with agents. I never import from the others, only from FF.

At any rate, this is now an excellent application which I heartily recommend to others. I also wish it were on the App store.

The one very important thing that GT will not do is allow me to display a fractional unit price (). If I set the prefs to display ALL money values as 0.00x, the all the totals display 3 decimal digits. For example on a postal rate of 14.5 cents (0.145) with a quantity of 803, the line item total shows 116.435. This is hard to explain to a client: "just write me a check for $116.44." There should be a way to specify a format for any numeric field on the invoice, not just a general format for all currency. Other than that, GT is an amazingly flexible and well-thought-out program.

Bugs. Bugs. I went to delete an icon from the LaunchPad database, but got an SQL syntax error. Program is largely untested. Furthermore, the minute I launched the program, I was bombarded with marketing dialogs to upgrade for $4.99 to the Pro version. So I did, but am disappointed because the OS (Lion) needs an app like this. LaunchPad, as it comes from Apple, is tantalizing but extremely basic in functionality.

Mikensmith needs to find something else to do. The constant attacks on this developer are tedious and useless. He should go develop something himself and set it out there for malcontents like himself to throw tomatos at. Flaming is for 4th graders.

Cute. Useless, but cute. No prefs, so full screen mode cannot be initial mode (must toggle). Needs to be a screen saver, not a looping QuickTime movie. I have to admit that it give my wife a start when she saw my monitor on fire.

I am a web devel and this app looked interesting. So I downloaded and fired it up, but the 5-minute demo kept me from ever completely figuring it out. What on earth were the developers thinking? I could not find any prefs to allow a different color besides the billious green as the new default. Maybe if there were more time... Somewhat useful features for the price. Disappointing customer interface. The 'Green' license is absurd.
