After a few days using Coda 2 I like many of the changes. The new tools are great (if a little buggy) and it feels fresh and useful again BUT I REALLY dislike the new tab bar. I don't like any of the 3 variations and I especially dislike the lack of a title bar. The design of this part of the app seems rough and unfinished and makes it more difficult for me to use it. Otherwise, it's great!

This antique software should be $10, not $70. It has barely been updated since it's heyday 15 years ago in the mid-90's. The mac is sorely in need of a mid-range database and this COULD be it but not at this rate of development. Sad.

This software is overkill. It's intrusive, unattractive and does nothing a good excel spreadsheet or even bento doesn't do. It works well enough but before you blow $40 on this try to figure out a more elegant solution already on your computer; Safari password autofill, user account authorization, and your brain.

I REALLY don't mean to be antagonistic, but most of those things you mentioned can easily be accomplished with software you already have on your computer with much less effort and much more elegance than 1password. For example, Safari already has autofill of passwords, it simply needs to be turned on. If you want to autolock your keychain upon leaving your computer then you can do that with your user account settings. My opinion is that most people have an overactive imagination of their importance and an irrational fear of people wanting their stuff. If you simply used the tools in the OS which are just as good you get a simpler solution, more security, more money saved and less time arguing with me on this. Don't be a slave to irrational and imaginary "need" for things you really don't.

This seems to be broken under Lion. The utility starts but all the screenshots it takes are solid black. I'm tried to adjust settings and still black. Too bad since the feature set is perfect for my needs.

I have to agree that iCal Lion is a step in the wrong direction for Apple. It seems Apple is intent on consumerizing their applications and leaving the "pro" category to others like Microsoft. Unfortunately the middle range really is lacking.

Busycal is a great start and I hope the developers DON'T follow Apple in consumerizing their application. What the Mac needs is a mid range PIM app. I don't think BusyCal is there yet partly because there is no contact or notes module and partly because features such as alarms, linking and other integration is absent.

The $50 price tag is reasonable to me but we need more development and features!!!

I've got to echo glinner's comments. Together is a very nicely designed piece of software, updated regular and has a nearly perfect feature set. There are a few issues I could go into but mostly ones of personal preference, not technical.

I would recommend Together for anyone looking for a freeform notes database.

Bug fixes? I don't want bug fixes I want v2.0!!!! I'm tired of waiting. Coda is great but it was very lacking features years ago when it was first introduced and very little progress since then.

The developers have teased us with a v2 but nothing so far. The long development cycle of this company is infuriating. I use their Coda as my primary development software but, nice as it is, I"m really ready to move on to some more features.

I like the features of devonthink and but the display of text is a deal breaker for me. With the vast array of prefs it's maddening that there is no option for default margin control in notes. Text is always jammed up against the top and sides of the text area. It looks sloppy and difficult to read and is a scar on an otherwise refined interface. Fix this and I'll buy it.

Upgrade pricing....perhaps it's a misprint? Or perhaps an error in logic...but either way, I'm not going to bite on this one...
