I can't say enough how grateful I am to have OnyX. It has always been a fully competent system utilities app. It also has a beautiful look and feel, a real thoroughbred! I recommend it to any Mac user who wants to keep h(er)is Mac running smoothly and pleasurably. A real gem!

Is this update compatible with OS 10.9 Mavericks? I sincerely hope so, because having happily used Grammarian PRO and PRO2 for many years, I want to continue.

I love Grammarian PRO2X and I love Mavericks. They deserve each other!

1.7 MailMate update fails. System Alert says the update has an "internal inconsistency" therefore update can't be completed. Downloading from developer's site similarly fails when 1.7 updated app launches.

No problem since I updated to Mavericks! Whatever it may have been no longer is a problem. Thanks again for your (I think) help! Love this app!

How does Amarra differ from a good DAC (which is what I have now)?

Would Amarra work satisfactorily with a good DAC?

your sarcasm doesn't address my question. unfortunately i can't help you with your attitude problem. i wonder why you bothered yourself to reply at all. it certainly didn't help me. if you know so much about high definition audio, perhaps you would do the courtesy of pointing me to some sources and/or resources where I good obtain a proper education in high definition music, whatever it is you imagine "high definition music" is or should be. try again, i'm sure you'll do better next time.

Now I've tried and bought Amarra, I acknowledge the salient point in @UniqueNickName's reply. The difference with Amarra is subtle but for a classical music lover capable of perceiving hypercritical distinctions of timbre and other aspects of instrumental, choral, and vocal sounds, it is definitely a boon paired with a good DAC.

I agree, it does take a fair amount of work by the developer to insure h(er)is app will be fully compatible with OS 10.9 Mavericks. But does that fact alone justify demanding I buy Numi again when only recently bought and paid for Numi 1.x?! Especially since I also bought and paid for Numeric Notes recently.

Will Numi 1.7.1 not work in OS 10.9? If so, I don't see the what added value there is to upgrade, from 1.7.1 to 2.0. "Introductory price" of 4.99 is actually $4.99 X 2 = $9.98" i.e. there is no introductory price, really, is there?

This is a flagrant example of what Consumer Reports magazine calls "Selling It" i.e. promising you a discount but in fact selling you full price.
Numi's developer owes his customers better value and better customer service!

I'm not an Opera user but I keep it updated to use when Plan A ,B, C etc. have failed to clear up a html issue etc.

So, not having visited this page for awhile, I want to know when Opera decided to switch from Webkit to a Chromium fork. (is 'fork' the correct term here, btw- i'm trying to forkward my computer literacy).

Sandvox, anyone?

I've been tracking along with the beta version. Thus far the app looks quite promising. But, in my case, a bug (or was it a feature?) trashed an email I had taken +20 minutes to write, the moment I clicked 'send' - it was just gone and unrecoverable. grrrrrr

So I'll wait a while longer before trusting my emailing to Airmail. (It may not have been Airmail's fault what happened to me, still...). I like the UI fairly well. Meanwhile Postbox still satisfies me. Postbox, then, it will be, but I hope Airmail succeeds!

I love Maintenance, as well as Onyx. But I'm surprised to find that neither works with Lion. I also don't find either app listed in the App Store. Could there be an oversight here. Please keep developing, I would gladly pay something for Maintenance.

Ever since MacSword turned 2.0 I have been unable to get it to launch successfully on my 2008 iMac. I have commented on this a number of times before in this column, been told by the developer that it must be something about my specific system setup, that I should describe precisely what the problem is (which I do as best as I can), and the problem will be discovered and solved.

I am trying once more to get a better result, namely a *solution* so I can use the app.

My setup is: late 2008 iMac 24", 2.8 GHz Intel, 4 GB ram, OS 10.6.3 (the newest iteration). I have a modest number of apps I use regularly, most of which are in wide use by Mac Users.

Hopefully this time will prove the charm.
