Absolutely brilliant and beautiful app. I use Mou for planning almost all my projects. Great for prepping notes for TeamworkPM, our project management tool. You can trust Mou not to crash (very important in a note taker/planner). Mou makes my life better. I too am using the Snow Leopard version.

Netfixer still works great and is ultralight. Long webpages, even password protected ones, can be shot with shared Safari cookies.

More info here with testing against Layers, Paparazzi and Screengrab for Firefox:

I'm not buying exclusively because of the painful registration system. I personally own and use 5 Macs of which I would want DSP-Quattro on three. What a horrible licensing system (single machine and each machine requires custom generated files). Even Adobe (devils in developers clothing) are not so onerous.

Hi Wydrune,

Thanks for your detailed feedback. While it is a relief to know it is not a single machine license, this kind of license hassle is simply not possible. I own a couple of hundred software programs and actively use intensively dozens. If each program took the approach of DSP-Quattro, I'd spend all my time managing licenses and not doing work.

I'm happy to throw a hundred dollars at open source fairly regularly just to the licensing hassle they save me. Paid software better be low hassle.

I'd buy Markdown Pro in a minute if I could buy it directly from the developer and if they offered a 10.6.8 version. I'm sure Radsense are costing themselves a fortune, as people like me who prefer Snow Leopard and don't like the app store are exactly the sort of people who would like a Markdown editor with custom preview.

Horrid company with sharp practices. Do yourself a favour and use SnapNDrag for basics (windows, selections) and Layers or Acorn for fancy stuff. SnapNDrag gives you an interface for quick saving (kind of a front end for the built-in screenshot commands). Ondesoft doesn't offer much value and you will find yourself scrabbling to keep a running version, despite owning software with nominal lifetime upgrades.

Thank goodness for a high quality Twitter application which is not on the App Store only highway to hell.

Also supports Snow Leopard. Good job Icon Factory. You made your sale today for those two reasons. Snow Leopard is Apple's XP. It just works. Legacy support where possible will make sales.

This worked where Preview did not. I had 10 pdf's to combine and Preview would not save them as a single PDF. Split and Merge did. On top of that the price is right. Great open source software.

Still doesn't let you look into files. Change of names from iArchiver to Rucksack to Archiver.

No updates for iArchiver users and no sign of a discount in the store.

I'm really sorry I didn't buy Springy back in the day when I bought iArchiver.

No easy discount available. $19.99 is the pricing I'm seeing.

Does anyone notice any real difference between version two and three apart from all the Mountain Lion and Retina compatibility fixes (neither interest me in the least: I'm staying Snow).

SnapNDrag (no editing though), Acorn (very powerful but pricey) and ImageWell (the 3.7.6 version) are the best replacements. Straightforward simple screen capture, allowing you to save where you like.

The other software listed above use weird database setups and lots of memory/processor cycles.
