Wow! The speed is pretty incredible -- all this time, I thought the slowness of VNC in CotV was due to network bandwidth issue. JFVNC proves this completely wrong. -- That the client is the bottleneck and not the network is a revelation.

I bought the app and I think it is great but I REALLY HATE the preferences interface -- can't find things-- a preference panel should be functional and easy to use, not "pretty" -- I don't want to play hide and seek with my settings.

I wish the developer would provide the option of having a straight forward interface here.

The problem with High priority is that it is mucking about in an ical datafile which could cause problems, especially when high priority updates when ical is running. For example, if you set a Todo in high priority while ical is running, ical won't see it. if you change ical items, it may overwrite the high priority items. I plan to work on a way to do what high priority does when ical is not running but to use appleevents (as it does now) when ical is running.

An excellent app for teaching basic programming concepts to beginners. I used in my Grade 8 class room and found it much better for sequencing statements and explaining branching and loops than other environments such as microworlds.

However, the app is plagued by minor bugs (unexpected quits, can't select objects after placing them, thinks flowcharts are incomplete when they are) Fortunately, a save and relaunch of the app takes care of the bugs. Also the app has several feature deficiencies. Could use:
* a print function,
* the ability to TRULY copy and paste (often parts get left out, hard to paste and place where you want thing),
* the ability to clean up the flow links
* the ability to save individual subroutines and import them into other flowcharts
* the ability to select multiple blocks and group and move them.
* the ability to closely tie grounds with programs (ie when loadin a program, it loads a concordant ground)
* the ability to set(program) new purposes for the robot and tie these with grounds or programs.

The developer is open to helping people out.
