OK, it has no competition across the features, admitted, but it's a pig-ugly, un-Mac-like application. Why the black on the left? Why no customisable themes or backgrounds? Double-clicking on a word doesn't select text properly. I'd just shout for joy if this thing had an overhaul that made it more aesthetically pleasing to use.

I love ForkLift, but I find it reports incorrect permissions on remote files. Be great if it handled cloud accounts too.

"Do not generate file names beginning with ._ (used for resource forks on non-Mac filesystems)"

Derp?

Aargh! Still wreaks havoc when you try to copy and paste with Numbers in Mavericks! Maybe other apps too?

I really want it to work because I don't know of another clipboard handler which has the great command-c-[whatever] to copy some item in the history and command-v-[whatever] to paste one.

I just had an email saying that unless I pay, my account and my files will be deleted from their servers. The help link that tells me how to remove my files before then talks about my "free limited 90-day trial" ending, but I opened my account in 2011. Not so sweet sugar sync. Think I'll stick with Dropbox.

It would be ridiculous to pay for this functionality. You can achieve the same thing with Preview, which is free with the OS.

I want to like this, but I note that it doesn’t support HFS metadata like resource forks, extended attributes or bundle bits, so not everything’s going to get synced.

What’s with the installation dialog that says, “CopyAgent has been moved or copied, and needs to repair permissions. Type your password to allow this.” And then I have to type in my Mac’s login password. ???

Can I trust this? What does it do?

I can only guess that this is a hack to get an ID of your device, to prevent multiple installs with different email addresses from benefitting from a ‘referral’ increase in storage space. As I say, that’s just a guess, but I notice on their zendesk forums that they are not answering the questions asking why this has to be in the first place. Decidedly dodgy and I know that I won’t be the only one to take a deeper look at this. Oh yeah, and @Strych9 - it does NOT support resource forks or any HFS metadata. They have a long way to go to clean up their act or get near Dropbox. Thus the allure of the big 15GB allowance so people won’t bother with these ‘details’.

One user reports that allowing this peculiar permission reset "managed to break my permissions so that Apache can no longer access my ~/sites directory". So not only dodgy, but not recommended generally. See: http://bit.ly/1dm1CaG

What's with the $397.00 price tag? Says $14.99 on the website.

Why can I not use ClickToFlash on any BBC video any more? It all stays as flash only.

There are some serious drawbacks to this app. I found that it doesn't keep track of changes in iCal - even when iCal is launched and its entries updated and quit again.

I update iCal, wait for quite a bit, then quit iCal, then look in Fantastical, and I see old entries that have been deleted.

Curiously, I found that Fantastical will accurately reflect what's in iCal *whilst iCal is open* but then it will revert to the earlier (outdated) pattern of events once iCal is quit again.

I therefore simply can't rely on it to show what's really in iCal.

It's a shame, because the eye-candy is nice.

On further testing I can confirm that the app is adding previously deleted repeating events into past dates, except when iCal is open, when the events re-configure themselves correctly. Once iCal is closed again however, the deleted past events return.

More problems with version 1.1 - now repeating events are shifted one day out! I just cannot rely on this software to show me what's actually in iCal.

Pleased to say these problems seem to have disappeared - now very happy with the app!

Trying version 3.0, I copy a chunk of text to an archive slot. Then, when I go to paste it back somewhere (carefully choosing the correct archive, by the way), something else is pasted! Furthermore, I look for the original chunk of text and it's gone! Losing data is the worst thing!

I so want to like this software, because it has one paste function I love: that is to press command-c and a key, like, any key (1, 2, K, L - anything), and then later press command-v [same key] to get it back. That, when it works, is fantastic for my coding workflow. But this "losing data" thing just means I can't trust it and is intensely annoying.
