In the last week, I moved to a new mac running multiple displays, which i do not use all of 100% of the time.

Gave the trial a go and soon purchased, very happy!!

The ability to turn off a display via software is gold. Works great, THANKYOU! I also appreciate the great depth of monitor/config features available for if i ever need them.

I've been waiting for this to go on promo for years!!!

BUT!! Since then, i've used a little fridge magnet to achieve the same monitor control i was after.. and that doesn't cost 10 bucks.

Does it still use that ape api? I can't think of a reason to get this finally after the fridge magnet trick :(

Thanks for this. There are some other good free video conversion apps out there (mp4tools im thinking of), but subler makes me simply happy.

Im a bit of a video noob, and all i know is i want to change the wrapper around my videos so that they will play well on apple hardware. Subler just does this. I don't feel ever threatened that its going to reincode anything or do anything fancy (save the audio), which would require me to learn the meaning of some arcane preset. It just re wraps it, which is exactly what i want.

Would be great if it could work with other file extensions as the source.

Just got this on sale. Its awesome.

While i absolutely agree and believe in the approach of keeping the server as light on resources as possible, perhaps the only reason to offer transcoding in some fashion is due to the fact that idevices have a really bad time at 1080p streamed.

PS3 handles 1080p just fine (network permitting) so would be a shame to duplicate/downconvert all my media.

Brilliant, thank you! Just like Apple forgot people using multiple monitors in lion, they also sadly forgot people using external mice and their scroll wheels.

The new natural settings makes sense for a track pad but are plain stupid for a mouse wheel.

This lets me use the trackpad with my left hand for swiping between spaces etc in the natural way, but use my mouse as it should be.

Thankyou so much for this utility. I've been looking for something like this ever since i switched to OSX.

While Voila is very well featured, i think its more for the very casual/itunes crowd.

If you take a number of related screengrabs, actually use the annotation features, and want to switch between the images, the ui is frustratingly inefficient. For some reason, the list of images gets hidden while editing the image, and there's no way to get back to your screengrabs without clicking on the 'Organizer' tab, which of course prevents access to the editing tools, until you click the 'tools' tab again, which looses the organizer.

There are no keyboard shortcuts or toolbar customizations to cut down on this really painful tab switching also.

Voila has really powerful capturing tools, and should be commended on that, but definitely try before buying if you have a heavy workflow using annotations.

Just got my money. Quite glad i didn't purchase the more expensive bundle by another vendor recently that included Pathfinder.

I've tried Pathfinder and Forklift, there's one feature that TotalFinder uniquely has that makes your life significantly easier.. when you're in dual tab view, there's a sidebar visible for both sides. Quality of experience from this increased greatly.

Being on promo (and being better value than the other two), and free lion compatibility sealed the deal. Awesome!

Just a quick 5 star review and thankyou for this brilliant program.

It does exactly what i need, to set an alarm and have a dialog box displayed with a message, and also periodically make a beep as with digital watches.

The only improvement i could suggest is to consolidate the ui for the different alarms.. but hey, its free and works great.

Since there isn't a demo, just wondering if the slideshow feature has different transition effects? Specifically, a pan/zoom or Ken Burns like effect.

I'll buy a copy happily if it does! Thanks!
