This is exactly why a trial version of software is so important - so you can see if the software works for you before splashing out $9.99.

I have really wanted a way to integrate the Mac with phone capabilities and (foolishly?) took a punt on this. Setting it up is pretty straightforward, just install it and pair it with your phone. Then the problems started... took a couple of calls using HandsFree and in both cases the caller said sound quality was really poor - strange because I've had no such issues using Skype. Second issue is that the 'Dial Pad' refuses to display which seriously limits the usefulness of this software. Maybe it's a compatibility issue with my multi-monitor setup, who knows.

Will follow up with developers, but it would have been nice to discover these issues with say a 7-day trial before making a purchase.

Would be nice to see more frequent updates. The current version of NetShred supports Firefox up to v24 but now we are on v27.

Thought I would give this a try to see what all the fuss about, and the fact that there's a trial version is a positive.

Would say that it's OK, but not a 5-star for me because it didn't really seem any easier than other masking tools I've used. To get good results you really have to work at it, so that's zooming in, reducing the masking 'pen' size to one or two pixels and getting into the fine detail of the subject. Yes it does what it says, but it took me a good 20 minutes plus to get good results when trying to extract a subject in a fairly simple image. To be fair, that's what I expect from this sort of tool - results will depend on how much effort you put in, so take the author's claims of not having to hunt for pixels you want to remove with a pinch of salt, as that's exactly what I had to do.

Just had an email from the company saying...

"It is with a heavy heart we have to announce that “doo – the document app” will be shutting down on Monday, March 17, 2014."

Very handy tool. My only wish is that for apps that are available both from the Mac App Store and elsewhere, it would check the correct place for the latest version. Often it tells me there's a later version of a MAS app when in reality I'm already using the latest version of the MAS app and it's only the non-MAS version that's been updated.

Apart from that, it's a really useful piece of software.

Version of the app on the about page is 1.4.15 (not 0.9.0 as listed here).

There's an issue with v1.4.15 under Mavericks that needs a workaround which is listed here -

Seems it will be fixed in the next release? (1.4.16?)

Great little app, been using it for a while now. Unfortunately, since the 10.6.3 update it has stopped working for me. Icon just shows 'N/a' and there's a message saying "Couldn't connect to", even though my internet connection is fine, and I can browse without any problems.

Have tried using this with iPhoto '09 running on Leopard 10.5.8. Everything is fine up to the point where you click the Export button to start the export, then the following message pops up... The application iPhoto quit unexpectedly. The problem may have been caused by the iPhotoBurnToDisc plug-in.

Have tried uninstalling/reinstalling as well as rebooting but no joy. Shame as it looks like a useful app.
