[Version 0.0.6b]

I have been a long-time user of early versions of Vox, and even donated some money awhile back. I thought it was doomed to fade away unmaintained, so it's great to see the new look!

Things I like in 0.96b:

* New UI is polished
* Fade on pause reminds me of good 'ol Winamp days
* Artwork appears in dock and cmd+tab menu.
* Pause/play buttons on my keyboard work with it.


* Export/conversion tools in 0.3 are missing.
* Audio Scrobbling featre from 0.3 is missing.
* Takes up a little more screen real-estate. Wish I could hide artwork display.
* Menubar icon has color. I prefer black and white.
* The promotional video on their website tells me nothing about the product!

If future versions of Vox cost money, I would pay for it. It's a great alternative to iTunes.

EDIT: I forgot to mention Vox's ability to play from iTunes works marvelously, and SO MUCH FASTER. I wish I could drop folders into the Vox playlist to achieve a similar organizational structure.

Macbiff is awesome for checking Gmail Priority Inbox with multiple accounts. Just tell it to disable/ignore all your other IMAP folders, monitoring the unread count of only "Important" folder. Given the volume of noise coming through my email inbox, I find this to be pure bliss.

Macbiff lacks the gloss and polish of other paid e-mail notifiers, but its minimalism is a welcome part of my daily workflow.

Plus, it is the only e-mail notifier I could find that could be configured to monitor only my Priority Inbox with multiple Gmail accounts.

I love the simple bare-bones UI. Colloquy is certainly nice too, but LImeChat just comes with less fluff.

The interactive storm tracks are amazingly useful and accurate to the minute (thanks to NOAA). I use RadarScope to keep my family safe during severe weather season in the midwest, where storms can make a turn for the worst at a moment's notice. I bought the iPhone version too. Worth every penny.

I use this application every day, and really open iCal when I need to search back in the archives. Simple and to the point! Got it as part of an MuPromo awhile back, worth the money.

I use VirtualHostX almost every day and find it well worth the money. As a web developer frequently managing staging and production environments, this allows me to to set things up quickly and skipping over the repetitive tasks.

I also appreciate the convenient "share over network" feature, which I use for pulling up tests on my iPhone, virtual machines, or anything else. A little on the expensive side, sure, but VirtualHostX gets a lot of use in my development workflow.

I bought Versions several years ago, but am ready to abandon it for Cornerstone's fantastic merging capabilities. Versions worked great in the old days, even on huge repositories, but Cornerstone takes the cake when it comes to simplifying merging, a task I deal with several days a week.

Though I'm typically a Git fan, my company continues to use Subversion to manage many projects, and this fits the bill.
