Some comments to version 2.0:
Actually 2 profiles (e.g. home & work); 1 or 2 more would be nice;
profiles can’t be renamed but developer promissed to look into
After your Mac has started, you can start all the apps in one of the
profiles and (in the end) they are shown in the order you preset;
when MenuBar ReArranger is started at login, this is all done
automatically according to the profile chosen last time.
When you change your mind about the way apps are sorted, you can
change it in the app and after pushing 'Apply’ it’s done. Magic!
At next login everything is there again as you wished.
Used LoginControl (profiles) and Exhaust (sort) before;
MenuBarReArranger replaced the both of them.
Developer very responsive to questions and suggestions. 'Try before
you Buy' (can't be bought in the App Store).
The flexibility this app gives you is amazing and although it isn’t
100% perfect (yet), it offers great options for those who need or
appreciate them. Certainly worth investigating!

In spite of my earlier comment about the price, i bought the app in the App Store. Wether the price is right or not, the app works like a charm, even better then Notify. While installing i was in the Netherlands and the app found a German IMAP server for my French Email-account. (Address German server identical to the one in France, except .de instead of .fr) For all my 4 accounts the app found and used IMAP- and SMTP-servers, gates, SSL-settings... the works. All accounts worked fine for detecting and sending new mail. The one (?) advantage of Notify is the use of tabs which makes it very simple to see in which account there is new mail and to switch between accounts. I'm happy with MailCall although Notify behaved rather well since i installed Mountain Lion. As Apple already has the next OS X on the stove, i thought better to replace an app which is not supported any longer.

Price in App Store is twice as high ($ 9.99)!

Monotony gives the opportunity to have a closer look at (only) those news items which really draw your attention while passing by. Lightweight efficiency or 'Simple is beautiful'.

Seems i was a bit to enthousiast to early. Compared to Google Reader with the same feeds as in Monotony, the app doesn't show all items visible in Google Reader were e.g. Reader Notifier does.

Nice design, not obstructive, modest system-requirements and all the info you want. Could be(come) a challenger for apps like MenuMeters or iStat Menus. Quick response from designer. Well done!

Works like a charm. As the Notification Centre comes with the OS anyhow, no new window - which could hinder or interfere with your work - is used. Once setup, including 'Open at Login', you can forget is; it simply works. As soon as the notification appears you can decide to give the subject a closer look... or not. Since available, the only RSS newsreader i use.

Ever since I discovered fruux, I habe been using it on my 2 MacBooks and my iMac. Initially i experienced some troubles, but they were always solved by the fruux-guys, consistently and speedy. Now, the software is as reliable as the fruux-team itself!
Have been trying MobileMe several times, but in the end the Apple-feature is no match for the combined efforts of fruux and Dropbox.
Wherever i go in Europe and abroad, my MacBook(s) are up-to-date and i have all my appointments, addresses and files at hand.
Looking forward to include my iPhone in the sync-process; a feature which is - as I understood- under development.

Works as advertised. I use the service (OS X 10.6.4) to sync folders which are outside my DropBox-folder (that's how i discovered the use of simlinks); works great.

Look at Wallet and be your own judge...

Great program; huge flexibility, clean interface, easy to use although help could use some more detail.
Have been using KeePass, KeePassX - and to some extent iKeePass - for a long time, but now switched to Wallet after checking lots of similar programs.
Syncing with the iPhone-app works like a charm; highly recommendable.
Had one glitch when importing KeePass-data and mailed author; had a reply within hours!
