Thank you ! It was amazing to get this back after being without it for over a year. It truly makes finding side bar items much easier and faster... the monochrome icons may look clean and crisp, but that totally interfered with usability and productivity. I am amazed at home much the loss of this stupid feature meant to me. But good job in bringing it back!

Useless but shame on me for paying for it before e2e testing.

DOES NOT export srubbed list.
DOES NOT enable to even COPY scrubbed list.
SUCKS! Total rip off that will piss you off too.

Very frustrating that I can't purchase the application. I've been trying to buy for a couple months but keep getting the 404 errors when I either connect from the UI nag screen or try connecting to their e-commerce site from their own website.

Especially annoying since I finally spent time evaluating the options so that I could make the *right* choice. Just like I thought, it's not worth the time.

So I will buy one of the others. The rating is strictly because of the problem downloading. My experience with the actual application has been flawless with no issues.

This is a great concept...a long time ago, there were a few aps like this...maybe back in the early OSX days and def OS9.

Suggestion: Since this is a "mini" unobstrusive concept, why does it take up so much space on screen? Really, just a small search screen (see QuickSilver, Launchbar, etc) is all I need. The clock and all that is pointless since I have a clock in my menubar.

The full screen should be available via preferences, or if you choose results. Just my 5 cents.

This is a great premise for an ap, that addresses a key use case I have because I don't have time to learn how to do it another way (suggestions?).

What I want is the ability to schedule launch and quit of an ap at specified time. Task3 has got the launch nailed, but the scheduled quit application doesn't work (tried on Macbook Pro/OS 10.6.2, Mac Mini Core Duo 10.5.8, and Macbook 10.4.?). Following instructions (and the documentation needs work, tho the developer admits his English is not so good) did not help. No other ap promises to do this that I am aware of without some scripting--which I have forgot everything I once knew.

Specifically, I am interested in running a torrent client at night, quiting and starting other aps in the morning, etc...). Can't get Transmission to quit, or any other ap.

So, dropped an email to dev last week...a new update came this week, but only addressed one of the two bugs (thanks for that, tho that didn't fix this issue:-)
