I really could have used this a couple months ago (our season just ended). Next year!

I'm rating Cookie Stumbler 5 stars to cancel out my previous negative review. The problem I had still hasn't been resolved, but I'm so impressed with the developer's attitude and willingness to find out what the problem is, it's apparent to me they're a solid company. Going the extra mile like that is rare, and I think it should be rewarded with good reviews. Well done, WriteIt! Studios.

Cookie Stumbler is a colossal piece of crap. I ran the 14-day demo, but I'm not sure 14 days is enough time for it to scan 3000+ cookies. I had to force quit it several times. When I ran its "repair/uninstall" utility, it informed me that my browsers' databases (Chrome and Safari are the only ones installed on my MacBook Pro) were most likely corrupt, and that I should delete them, so I did. When next I ran the Cookie Stumbler app, it said I had 5 cookies, but after an hour of scanning, it still couldn't quite get past the "Analyzing Cookies..." dialog, even though there were now only 5 cookies. Force Quit agin. You might as well just use your browser's "Clear Browsing Data" function and save $20 bucks. This software is ultimate TurkeyWare, a total waste of time, and now I have to re-log in to all my sites, configure my site preferences, etc., because its "repair" app deleted everything, not just adware and tracking cookies. C'mon, WriteIt!

I did contact support. I visited the support section of your website, read FAQs and searched for solutions. I also used your Repair/Uninstall app to delete my browsers' databases, which again, didn't solve the problem. When I ran Cookie Stumbler again, the databases were just a few minutes old, but after an hour of analyzing (3 tracking cookies and 5 harmless cookies), and the "Cancel" button not working, I had to force quit.

Please provide a preference to distinguish between regular releases and beta releases. It's annoying to be notified by MacUpdate Desktop that Google, for instance, has released yet another beta of Chrome, but I don't want to mark it with "Don't check for updates" because that would ignore any non-beta releases. Like many, if not most people, I rarely install beta software, and when I do, it's a special situation and I rely on the developer to keep me updated.

dp8, I'm not sure that preference does anything. I just noticed that a beta version of OnyX is listed, and the current release version is listed as out of date whether that preference is on or off.

So it's a downgrade, not an upgrade. Too bad version numbers don't include negative, i.e., 4.1.-1
[Version 4.1.1]

The upgrade price isn't $29, but rather €29 (which is something in the neighborhood of $40-45 bucks). So I'll assume the purchase price probably isn't $79 either....

I did check the website, and it says, "Purchase a license for only EUR 79 incl. VAT!" and, "you can now upgrade to version 3.0 for only EUR 29 incl. VAT!" (I'm quoting from their website, by the way.) Now it's possible they're only going to charge my credit card $29, but I'm not going to purchase it until they make that more clear.

Thanks, DB, for confirming Linotype converts it to the prices listed here on MacUpdate. I purchased the upgrade this morning and can confirm I was only charged $29 (not €29).

My low rating is for the new app version of SmartSleep. I bought the app and used it for a couple of weeks, but recently uninstalled it and switched back to the free prefpane version. I really liked the new menubar item, but the actual "smart" sleep feature only works if the app is running all the time, which is an annoyance. I don't have a problem with the developer going commercial -- the price is very reasonable -- I just wish he'd kept it a prefpane instead of an app. I'm guessing he only made it an app so he could sell it via the AppStore.....

HoudahSpot is everything Spotlight is and isn't. It's the interface to Spotlight I've always wanted, and it's worth every penny (by the way, the upgrade to 3.0 is only $5 bucks).

This is an astonishingly useful app for anyone who regularly works with fonts and typography in design, documentation, multi-lingual publishing, etc. The glyph and character info it provides is exceptionally helpful and well-thought out. I especially like the ability to copy a glyph's outline data to the clipboard and paste it into Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. (and of course, it's great for inserting characters into text as well). Viewing copied text on the clipboard in various fonts is another cool feature.

I'm not sure yet about how much I like automatically loading the app into the menu bar (when you quit, it's unloaded), but other than that, this is a perfect utility for me.

I love its speed, uncluttered interface, and bookmark syncing, but without the ability to view PDFs directly (it currently downloads them rather than viewing them), I won't be switching to it as my default browser.

I'm hesitant to review it yet because so far all it's done is repeatedly crash the Finder (10.7.3). Twenty Finder crash logs in 15 minutes. It kills XtraFinder when you run it, but even with XtraFinder disabled, it crashes the Finder over and over. The only other possible culprits involved would be iStat Menus and Little Snitch. Anyone else experiencing similar behavior?
