I have been using Movist since it was in early beta and I have to say it is my favorite and most useful video player. I also use VLC and MPlayerX (in addition to Apple's Quicktime), but Movist is the movie player I always start with and probably use for over 80% of my movie viewing. I have to admit that I don't muck around in code so perhaps I am not aware of some other people's limitations, but for general movie viewing this app plays almost any file I throw at it. This app is definitely worth purchasing and I highly recommend it for people who need a reliable movie player that loads quickly and has many advanced features. Aloha.

@developer: Sure this app does different things that iTrash, but why "trash" the name of a great uninstaller.
Next time you create a new app you should call it "Excel by Circus Ponies" and see how long till a boatload of lawyers contacts you.

Like the next commentator, I too don't have the latest version of TrashMe, but the older (free) version works just fine on SL.

Years ago I compared all the free or trial ware uninstaller apps at that time and found TrashMe and iTrash to find the greatest number of associated files with the least amount of error.

I already purchased iTrash and it works fine. I assume the newest version of TrashMe also works fine, and if I didn't already have a great uninstaller app, I would probably buy this one.

As far as all the whiners complaining about developers wanting to earn a few dollars, "Get a life." If you don't want to pay for anything besides free, then don't, but please stop whining and downgrading ratings just because you're a cheapskate.

Seems to me that most small developer app prices have dropped dramatically within the past few years, and I can remember when the best rated uninstaller app cost about $20, and gas was about $2 a gallon.

@ Wildfox: How is this malware ? I have not actually tried it yet but I cannot find any other reviews of it on the internet. Can you please explain how this is malware? you gave it a 1/2 star review... why?

Like it or not this IS the future. I personally want someone else to keep track of all my downloads and licenses so I can set up a new computer profile with one password and no saved files.

There will be a day soon when you will only be able to update your software (Lion?) through the App Store. Isn't that what the memory farm in North Carolina is all, about: saving everyone's profiles and downloads and the ability to stream all purchased audio/ video to any device?

Some people complain that Apple doesn't search your computer to find and update all prior purchases- but do you really want someone else searching your computer? That sounds MicroSucky to me and I would rather have them just remember what I have purchased/ downloaded than have big brother picking through my private property.

If you don't like the App Store I guess you could switch to Linux which seems to be the platform of the current rebels, but I am personally glad that Apple has forced the world to go wireless and digitized music and video.

And yes, MacUpdate will continue to exist because there will continue to be non-App Store apps, and the user reviews on this site are so valuable.

Unsanity ignored their customers while failing to fix their haxie to work with Snow Leopard for so long that I just got used to living without them. Unsanity's insistence to charge an upgrade fee for a previous lifetime purchase after being AWOL for nearly a year was the final slap in the face. I deleted all remnants of their old System 7 app and my computer runs just fine. Who do they think they are… Micro$oft?

I have been using this software since it was Red Snapper, and I find it to be indispensable. I do a lot of online financial transactions and this allows me to keep exact records of purchases/transfers.

The developer has been very good in responding to questions and finding old licenses.

The only downsides are that 1) it only works in Safari and 2) Apple no longer supports input managers in Snow Leopard, so you will need to reset Safari to 32 bit.

Am currently using 2.3.5 on Tiger, but planning to upgrade to S.L. soon.

This is for Onyx 2.4.7 on Lion 10.7.4
re: scripts hanging. Took over an hour to run Automation scripts. Partial solution is to keep clicking (periodically) in progress bar while waiting for script executions to finish. It seems to help "unstick" the scripts. More permanent solution is to delete Onyx and install YASU, at least until developer fixes this glitch.
