Does exactly what it says it does. Sweet, simple.

I purchased this a few minutes ago and wow is it simple. With dual monitors and 14 applications going I was moving stuff around like a pro. Not that I need to do this habitually, quite the opposite. It was just fun doing it. Slick.

Hats off to MacUpdate too. The ability to have MacUpdate Desktop automatically download and install the program is sweet and a second click (or two) puts the serial and associated details in my 1Password.

(I gave it five stars for everything because it wouldn't let me out without rating everything. I'll come back and re-rate if it doesn't measure up.)

I've been using this for a number of years without any problems. The application is functional, easy to understand, no bells, no whistles. It's stable, it's free.

It's a shame the geniuses at Apple have yet to figure out how to include this (very important) functionality. Too busy counting their money I guess.

Love it. I hummed and hawed about paying for this for a long time. It's easy to use and a huge time saver.

In addition I think Macupdate is easily one of the few essential sites for Mac users.

Gets heavy use as it covers off all my personal and work stuff. Passwords, serials, notes, credit cards and on and on. I have about 400+ items in 1Password most of them work-related and this is the only way I can generate and track unique passwords.

The updates are steady and bugs never seem to go unaddressed for more than the blink of an eye. The tech support is fast however the product has become so tight that I haven't needed it for a couple years. These guys are really on top of things. There are a couple kinks since Lion came out that I think they need to address but I'll wait to see. The new toolbar interface took some getting used to but it's cool.

I initially balked at the price but have never regretted purchasing.

Thanks brenty. There are only a few programs that I find indispensable. I bang the drum for 1Password and a few other programs whenever the opportunity arises since I work in a Mac environment and we all appreciate good software. Imagine what I'd say if I worked for you guys.
