An amazing Mail add-on - genuinely useful, just the right amount of features and a well-thought out user interface. I rarely give a five star rating to software as there's usually some deficiency, but I can't think of anything that Herald is missing (especially with the latest 1.2 update). Great work!

I was more than happy to give the author a $10 USD donation and encourage others who find this useful to follow suit.

Earlier this year I did an in-depth review of online backup solutions for Mac - both for my own benefit and to provide recommendations to my consulting clients. I started putting Backblaze through its paces shortly after they added Mac support and have been using it ever since.

The software is well thought-out and works very well in my experience. I contacted their technical support department on one occasion regarding some messages that were appearing - I have a cloned version of my hard disk and, while all the data was getting backed up as expected, the software got a bit confused. The technical support was amazing and I had a workaround within 24 hours. Their software was updated a short-time later to address this issue and this minor inconvenience is now resolved.

I have 70GB of data backed up to Backblaze's servers, including all of my cherished photos, and sleep better at night knowing that my data is secure. Well worth $5/month (or $50/year) in my opinion. I have tried several restores and in all cases the process was intuitive and quick.

I highly recommend Backblaze.

I'm very happy to stumble across WiFind. It's one of those little extensions that makes life just a little bit easier and certainly more convenient.

I was using iStumbler to seek out WiFi connections. It works well and is certainly affordable (free), but I appreciate the simplicity of WiFind. There's no application to launch and all the information I could need (signal strength, channel and secured status) is available at the click of a button.

I'm happy to pay $8 for this sort of convenience.

I licensed this application soon after putting it through its paces, and I'm glad I did!

I use a wide variety of applications and utilities and in the past it has been a bit of a chore keeping track of all of the serial numbers.

LicenseKeeper has made this tracking easier than I would have thought possible. I especially like the ability to be able to be able to select one or more e-mails in Mail and import them into LicenseKeeper with the click of a button. The software is even smart enough to extract the serial number and other information from the imported e-mails. Brilliant!

I highly recommend this application to anyone with more than a few serial numbers to manage. I've tried using more general information management utilities (including using SplashID for years), but see the benefit in having a dedicated utility for the task of serial number tracking.

Wow - I'm impressed! I've looked at many menu bar clock replacements, timers and alarm clocks over the years and have found a winner! Meridian is a text book example of a beautifully crafted Macintosh application. It's very flexible and sports a sizeable list of genuinely useful features all wrapped in an efficient, intuitive and uncluttered user interface.
