Interesting that the price shown here is .99c while the AppStore shows $5.49 - quite some markup for a single click!

I downloaded this latest 'update' this morning - it said it would recover the database, but although it said it was successful it refused to open the database and will not even let me create a completely new database, and, of course, absolutely no response to my support request[s] now over 20 days old.

My patience with this company, their products and what they think passes for support for a long time and previously loyal customer is exhausted!

Perhaps even they don't know how to fix the problem[s]!!!!!

Totally agree with Harristype - completely broken under Mavericks. Current file will not open and backup will not restore. Support ticket lodged with Chrono 17 days ago - absolutely no response, not even an acknowledgement. Years of data now locked away. I doubt that I can trust this software, or the Company, again!

At AU$20.00 it's too expensive to just 'try'. Once again a lack of any sort of a demo restricts the market, works against the developer, and makes it extremely difficult to accurately rate the app.

Information on the developers site is somewhat sparse and does not allow a useful judgement to be made.

This I Like! Quick, easy, convenient.

As always a couple of wishes but mainly with the export file - would like to see dates in dd/mm/yyyy rather that yyyy/mm/dd - makes it easier for a lazy person, like me, to transfer the data to FileMaker.

Would also love an iPad version.

The copy here says it is ver 8.0.18305 and is listed for 31 Oct. The version I have installed is 8.0.18314 also date 31 Oct. Is somebody way behind or have I stumbled on a time warp?

Check for updates always tells me that I have the latest version when inspection tell me otherwise.

Having said that the software works fine and is certainly recommended although a little pricey especially the ver 8 update.

Have been using InstantShot for a long time but suddenly it fails in os 10.8.2 and I've had to look for an alternative. The beta simply freezes. I'm sorry to lose such a 'friend' but my urgent need for a simple screen capture program dictates that I must move on.

Both the download and the Developer's site seem to have disappeared - links from here return - '...can't connect to server...' and this has been the case for several days now.

MacOS 10.7.2 - downloaded the demo - when attempting to open I get a text file showing credits but no program - nothing in the dock - no window - exactly nothing. Closing the text file window doesn't do anything other than close the text file window.

The app site requires registration to add to a public forum in the hope that there is an answer to my problem - I declined to register.

The rating's below are only set because without them I cannot post this.

Peternew reviewed on 28 Oct 2011 demo no sale! ... been burnt too often in the past by overhyped and under performance - ratings only complete so as to add this comment - I have not downloaded or used this app
