I really wish I could find this more useful. However, I'm a professional photographer and I use a pretty involved backup scheme (a combination of SuperDuper! and CarbonCopyCloner, along with limited Time Machine), and this seems to create issues with file/folder exclusions in Blast.

Specifically, no matter how many times I exclude certain types of files or specific folders, my backups keep producing "new" or "modified" files that keep popping up in Blast, so I spend more time right-clicking to exclude things than getting to the files I want.

Also, there seems to be a bug when right-clicking on items in the list, as after removing a file/folder/file type, the next right-click will still bring up information related to the item I just excluded. For example, if I right-click on folder "Backups" and exclude it, then right click on the item that has moved into "Backups" position in the list, the context menu will offer to exclude "Backups" rather than the current item.

Still, a good idea with potential, and it probably works very well for people with less convoluted disk and backup setups than I have.

Just a short mea culpa for my earlier comments about this offering more than you used to be able to get as a non-developer. Several sources that I read were acting surprised that Apple was offering the full Xcode 4 package to non-developers, and I took that and ran with it.

It has since become clear that I was mistaken in my assumptions. While I don't think asking for $5 is out of line, and may keep people from casually downloading the 4.5GB package and never doing anything with it, it's clear that Apple is now charging for something that used to be free. Perhaps there is some Sarbanes-Oxley involvement in the decision, or perhaps they wanted to test the App Store's ability to increase the downloads of the developer tools while also bringing in a little bit of money for the tools.

Whatever the case, it is clearly a change, and I'm sorry that I assumed otherwise in my earlier comments.

Great that you can now get the latest version of the developer tools without being a member of the developer program. Yes, it will cost all of $4.99, but it's still free if you are in the developer program, and releasing the tools for a small price should encourage more people to learn to use them (vs. requiring a $99 membership).

The first reviewer has clearly never played the game - on the iPad, it's a very good pinball simulation. Giving the game a poor rating to make some sort of lame political point about the App Store doesn't seem fair to the developers.

Hmmm, is it just my machine where beta 2 doesn't actually do anything it's supposed to, but instead starts TextEdit whenever it's activated and won't let it close, to the point where the only way to restart the machine is to deactivate MondoMouse so that TextEdit won't stop the machine from restarting? Weird............
