Choosy has good features and works well, but there is a problem.

on startup, it tries to dial out using sparkle. if you have this blocked it hangs the computer for 15 to 30 seconds.
no where to uncheck the check for updates.
not good programming.

looks like it is abandoned just like mulitbrowser.

After activating this software I forgot about it.
Then I started gettting dialogs that the backup was not available when the drive was not connected. Searching for the solution to the problem I found suggestions to repair the drive or sparsebundle. After trying many things I tried one method that damaged my backup. So I turned off time machine, but kept getting the dialog.
Finally figured out it was TimeMachineEditor.
Their scheduler does not look to see if the drive is on or if time machine is on like TIme Machines built in scheduler does, it just keeps trying to backup. Thanks for wasting my time!

developer has a poll on their product page to vote for snow leopard version. i voted, if you have snow leopard, you should vote too.

works great and has a lot of features for working with music files. developer was very responsive to fixing some minor bugs quickly.

interface is not the easiest. sometimes I have to search for the correct function even though I have already used it before. but that can be forgiven for the fact it has so many features.

no way to cancel. if you have stepped away and have a video playing this takes control of the screen so you cannot see the video and you have to wait for the count down to finish.
there should be a way to cancel.

it will not allow you to skip the long intro story every time launched.
screen resolution will not change.

you have to go to the DEVs site to DL the Safari 3 version.

what is Keywurl running a backup of the keyword.plist every 2 minutes?
way overkill. maybe backup only on quit?
check your console log to see backup activity.

fission causes MDS process to use extremely high cpu (145%) when opening any file.
the only way to stop the high cpu is to close fission.

i have tried aiff and mp3 files with 1.52, 1.61 and 1.62.
i have an C2D 2.4Ghz processor with 4GB ram.

it would be nice if they would fix this problem.

great program. only one problem with v0.6.1
if you create AAC or ALAC files, they will not run on certain ipods and you can NOT share through iTunes over the network.

they play fine in iTunes, just no sharing.
it it not the fault of the developer, just the way iTunes handles the files. hopefully a fix will come soon.
