I am only an occasional user of this software, so that I skip many of the, for me too frequent, upgrades the developer makes. This does not take away however that this is very nice piece of software.It works very welland I like the (recent?) the possibility to see your trail with Google Earth. I think the software excels at showing where you have been (after having recorded your track with a GPS). It is not always as useful to plan a new hike, as it uses free maps which often do not trails marked on them. I do not hold this against the software, as it would cost money (usually) to get such marked up maps (via Topo e.g.). Some other sites have free trails in GPX format (I believe the backpacker.com site has these),sothe user has to download them first.

It says:
Price: $1.00 (exp. 12/11, was: $34.00)
in the box next to the description, but when I try to buy the software from the download it shows $34.
Please change it back to $34 if that is the rice or otherwise indicate hoe to get the $1 price

ars had trouble on 14 Mar 2007
After updating to Mac Os X 10.4.9 iSnip crashes when starting up. Here is part of the console log:
2007-03-14 10:26:15.042 iSnip[429] CFLog (0):
CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData(): plist parse failed; the data is not proper UTF-8. The file name for this data could be:
/Users/xxxxx/Library/Preferences/iSnipDatabase
The parser will retry as in 10.2, but the problem should be corrected in the plist.
