What a blast from the past! I used to use the old version of this back in 2005 or so before it slid of the radar. (Back in my day, you didn't get a date picker; you entered dates as strings in a textfield!)

Best of luck with the new version. :)

Obnoxiously, this app associates itself with dozens of filetypes. Why would I want all my source code to default to this utility rather than my IDE?

I don't begrudge software authors charging for their work and this app could be useful, but $25 doesn't seem like the right price point to me.

I appreciate that it was no doubt a lot of work, I don't mean to diminish that, but certainly, for me, upon first blush the price appears high for what is at it's core a GUI. But of course I purchased Versions for double the price of this app, so I can't very well let that be the final word on it. ;)

You're clearly confident that you've added the features to warrant the price so I'm curious enough to try the demo. :)

I've been looking forward to Steam for Mac for weeks now, and I have to say that so far I've been disappointed.

Firstly, it's an Adobe AIR app. Now I acknowledge that this was probably the only way they'd bother getting a port for OSX, but it looks like it was designed by a 2-bit Flash developer and seems to barely work. It took me a few tries to figure out how to download Portal (though that could be my own failing) but when I did I needed to restart the app to 'enable the update'? What does that even mean? It then crashed on me twice while downloading and browsing the store simultaneously so I just left it and went to bed. This morning Portal still hadn't downloaded because it was suspended for some reason. I don't know why, but I resumed and went to work. Maybe it'll be done by the time I get home... Is this really on-demand gaming?

Steam is set to auto-run at startup by default, which is pretty ballsy, but at least you can easily turn this off. A bigger problem is that all game data is saved to the ~/Documents directory and there is no apparent way to change this. I don't know what the Windows setting is, but I imagine it's got to be somewhere more logical.

All said, it is an app that reeks of sloppy decision making and implementation but hopefully over time it'll mature because at this point I don't know if it's worth my time and effort.

"In the end, maybe it's just better to get a decent game console than to bother with this"

That's kind of my initial reaction. I'll give Steam it's fair shot-hence why I didn't review it-but I've been a content console gamer/ex. PC-user for many years now so I don't *really* feel like I'll be missing out if the experience doesn't improve.

That said, I'd love for Steam to improve and for the Mac gaming scene to get a good shot in the arm.

I got this app a year ago as part of MacHeist 3 and it's actually a pretty good app. Like others here have said, if you use it and it works for you, then by all means keep using it. If you haven't bought or tried it, then, again like others, I strongly recommend that you NOT. The updates have slowed to a trickle, the mobile app is vapourware, and the author is not forthcoming with information. At this point the only confidence rebuilder is a solid update and the release of the mobile app. Their word means basically nothing.

Check out Things-it's a little more expensive, but Cultured Code have proven they can ship products and good ones at that.

I didn't get very far with Squirrel. It crashed upon completing the first-boot setup so I had to start over. Annoying, but not a deal breaker, although it does shake my confidence a bit.

Regardless, I tried importing a CVS downloaded from my bank but it failed miserably by marking every transaction as a credit thus giving me a bank balance MUCH higher than reality (funny, but pretty useless). Maybe there's a way to adjust the imported data but this will be my primary method for populating the transactions so the app has to get it right, or it's got to go.

I've been trying MoneyWell and although it's a bit more complicated it works very well and has an intuitive and flexible CVS import feature.

Heh, I always do that: CSV, not CVS... ;)

I don't want to set up Mail on my work computer but still want to keep an eye on my email accounts and Notify is the best option I've tried. The free version alone is quite good if you don't mind opening up the web interface to reply, make as read, etc. I didn't think I'd bother upgrading to the paid version, but I find having access to these basic mail functions is really quite handy and I'm happy to spend the money to support good software. I'd like to just give 4 stars to give the room app to improve, but what's the point in that? It is already a great leap better than 1.x and does everything I was looking for.

Keep up the great work!

* One quick feature request: disable images in email previews with a preference, please. :)

I've only just begun trying this app out, but is it *supposed* to open all links in Firefox instead of the OS default browser (in my case Safari 4)? This is pretty messed up behaviour...

I can't say how it happened, but I've discovered that Firefox somehow managed to become the default browser even though I never use it so I retract my comment above. :)

Coda is a brilliant v1.0 product and well worth the price. That said, there are a few omissions I hope/expect to see in future versions (SVN, global find/replace to name 2) but as it is, I can more than recommend this app to any web developer.
