Question: can I use this software without the visible keyboard? All I want is the sounds. The video implied "no."

Well reviewed by http://brettterpstra.com/2013/12/23/a-few-of-my-favorite-mac-apps-in-2013/

BUT, why can't I do 90% of this by creating my own folder of aliases to all these locations and programs, and sticking the folder in the dock (or finding a way to put it in the menu bar)? And, isn't this the whole idea of the Favorites folder?

For $15, seems steep to do a more elegant job of something I can do myself. I'm happy to be persuaded, but so for it does not make sense. Responses welcome.

Edit: I should have listed this as a comment, but did not see the menu in time. My * rating is based on the review by terpstra.

No longer works under Mac OS 10.7 or later (Lion, Mountain Lion).

Here's what the developer's web site says:
Eudora Mailbox Cleaner is a PowerPC application and requires Rosetta to run on Intel machines. This means that Eudora Mailbox Cleaner will not run under MacOS X 10.7 (Lion)

I've been a champion of PRH for years, but I can no longer recommend. It causes my machine to kernel panic or freeze, under OS 10.7.4. The price was right - free for 90% of the functionality - but I paid for the upgrade just because I liked it so much. Now I'm looking for a replacement. SOME program like this is essential.

I've been using EagleFiler for at least 2 years now, and it has gradually taken over almost everything that I used to do with files and folders. I have 3 libraries: One for my main research and reading documents, one for the courses I teach, and one for computers and hobbies. Total documents approximately 10,000. One key to its value is that all files stay in their original formats and can be accessed by any other program.
One reason it's faster to manage files than the Finder is ease and speed of searching; another is the automatic preview of almost any kind of document.
i'm trying to give 5 stars on "Features" but I'm running into a bug on Macupdate.

I need a replacement for PTH Pasteboard (which seems to have some problems under Lion), so I tried CopyPaste, which I last used 5 years ago.
Answer: CopyPaste runs under Lion, BUT CPU utilization went up drastically. At first it was 30% (of one processor; 15% overall). Then it went up to ~100%. Even when not in active use.
So I've dumped it. Fortunately I didn't pay yet.
Is this normal under other OS's, or is it just under Lion?

I love this app, and used it for years after trying others. But with my new Macbook Pro i7 (March 2010 model), it seems to dramatically reduce the battery life. Apparently it keeps the CPU active even though it uses only about .2% of CPU. Activity Monitor shows it constantly active.

Uninstalling it gave me about an additional hour of battery life - the difference between 4 and 5 hours. I am still experimenting, but it looks like I'll have to uninstall it except when I'm at a power source.

Update, early 2014. BATTERY PROBLEM SOLVED. I've been using it without visible battery hit, since Apple improved its energy-saving methods in OS 10.9. (The OS now "bunches" intermittent activities together, so that the CPU is turned to a higher state much less often when not much is happening.)
However, I have been unable to re-register the darned thing. I follow the instructions carefully, I corresponded with the author, and still no joy. So my trial period will run out in a few weeks = frustrating. It's worth another $8 to me, but the problem is not due to my particular code.
By the way, I am running version 1.3.4, and the update function says there is nothing newer. So I'm not sure why Macupdate says 1.3.1 is the latest!

TechTool conflicts with "Time Machine" (Mac's great backup program). It creates HUGE, multi-gigabyte, backup files for Time Machine every day. This slows down TM, and fills up your backup disk with junk.

The solution is to turn off TechTool's protection (in the preferences pane). Especially, turn off Directory Backup. After all, if you are running Time Machine every hour, as we all should be, we don't need TT's backup which sits on our regular hard drive and is therefore less reliable.

Once your turn off TT protection, what's left? The disk information and trouble shooting utilities. Ask me in 3 months if they are worth the price.

I cannot persuade the demo to open a PDF file. Acrobat, Preview, and PDFpen will open it, and 2 out of the 3 will OCR it.

Is the demo crippled, so that it won't open PDF files? Drag/drop do not work. Nor does opening from the menus - pdf files are grayed out.

The web site claims this software will process PDF files.
