When I tested AppDelete some time ago along with some others of like kind, none of them were 100% reliable; all did leave some files behind.
But I finally decided to give AppDelete a trial run.
And whaddya know, so far AppDelete does delete all relevant files.
After using AppDelete I run Find Any File or EasyFind to check if all pertinent files were in fact deleted. So far, two thumbs up for AppDelete!
If AppDelete does fall down on the job, the developer will be one of the first to know.
I purchased AppDelete at 30% off but even at the regular low price of $7.99 it's a definite keeper.

While SU offers some handy and useful info and renders it quite well, $25 IS too high,IMO; $10-$12, OK,OK,maybe as much as $15 would be an appropriate price point.
I just won't buy it for $25.

Having played the previous version for some time, I knew after my first game in v 2.1 that the developer did make Boom more difficult to master; I've never advanced very far through the levels but now, my scores are lower than before. The game will kick yourass with the greatest of ease.
Anyway, a rather pleasant diversion, albeit quite a frustrating one.
As a previous commenter pointed out, getting trounced and then starting from the beginning over and over again does get to be a big drag.
Still, Boom is a keeper.
V2.1 has got some bugs but the developer has been alerted.
Hope the developer has the balls to remain totally independent and keep everything "in house" including marketing and sales.
I'd much rather deal directly with the developer rather than slosh around in the MacCrap Store cesspool.

I swear, Big Fish pits out some of the lamest, most insipid games.
Their website states "a billion games downloaded".
The market for mediocrity is enormous, no?

AirRadar shows my wireless signal strength at 13% while iStumbler shows it at 35%.
Which is most accurate???

A well put together pinball game for Mac...fun to play, however the license is NOT free as stated but $35 which is rather expensive for a downloaded computer game.
I'd go for it at a fair price (say about $15) but not at $35.

Safari Cookies touts itself(on the developer's website) as being the 'Ultimate' cookie manager for Safari but I'd say at this point that's pure hyperbole; SC is OK as far as it goes but it certainly has not gone far enough to reach Ultimate status.
What it lacks and sorely needs is, as one commenter here mentioned, the ability to block cookies of one's choice i.e. tracking cookies(doubleclick, Google Analytics, ad.yieldmanager).
I'd expect, indeed hope, that as SC evolves it's developer will incorporate the sbovementioned functionality.

While I've experienced absolutely no problems with S5 since installing it a couple of weeks ago, I really feel that that it badly needs a choice of UI (toolbar) themes....skins,
something that Firefox offers in abundance.
Safari's only theme is pathetically drab, lackluster and uninspiring.
Otherwise, S5, for me, has been pretty fast and stable.
It really needs the wide choice of add-ons (extensions) that Firefox offers.
Other than its sprightliness, my feeling about S5 is "meh", I'm not impressed.

This is very nicely put together but at $60 it's horribly overpriced.
$20 would be about right for it.
For $20 you can purchase the excellent EarthBrowser, which, due to an Adobe Air problem, was out of commission for many months but is now back in operation.
But $60 for Earth Explorer? Truly, the mind boggles.

I'd like to try this puppy out but can't activate it to get it going.
After launching DTP it requires one to enter user name and serial # or to purchase it; there's no option for a trial use.
Dunno, but maybe I should stay away from this app after Maluisa's report of experiencing major problems with it.

Yep, this thing IS a sickeroo alright. Images of both barnyard animals as well as bear, deer, and what appear to be racoons, none of them threatening anyone or each other. All just blasted away. And this is supposed to be fun???
The developer says that he doesn't promote animal abuse. Ok, then. So what is the game all about , if not killing them in a horrible, sadistic manner. And why? Because the animals are escaping, crossing the environment. So, lets kill them.
If nothing else, Barnyard Blaster desensitizes its players to the suffering of all sentient beings.
The developer is a case in point; he obviously doesn't have a clue.
he says that the game is only meant for "mature audiences". The game's description says "the replay value will keep you occupied for countless hours".
I can't imagine that a person with a mature state of mind would even "get off" on playing this abomination, let alone play it for hours. Yes, this thing is twisted all right.

Stated requirements are an Intel Mac and OS 10.5, along with Growl.
I've got them all yet the Capster DMG has got a circle with a diagonal line through it and a message upon launch attempt which says, "You cannot use this version of Capster with this version of Mac OS X", I've got OS 10.5.8.
Maybe Capster requires OS 10.6?
What sayest thou, developer?
I could find no email contact address on the developer's website.

While this version worked fine for me initially, before long when I moved my cursor to Cocowifi's menu bar icon I got an endless beachball, making Cocowifi's UI unavailable.
I restarted my machine but the menu bar icon no longer appeared.
Clearly, some bugs need to be worked out.
I'm running OS 10.5.8 on an Intel core 2 duo MacBook Pro.
