I get quite a bit of use out of UIBrowser as I do a lot of UI automation that Automator simply can't handle.
UIBrowser is stable and well documented; the developer is also very responsive.

Excellent tool. I don't use Charles much, but it's wonderful knowing I have it when I need it. The developer is also very responsive.

Retina Users: I just wanted to let everyone know does work properly on hosts with a Retina display. Viewers will see your screen at a reasonable resolution, unlike other tools like Google Chrome Remote Desktop.

I've been very happy with Droplr for the past few years and I'm thrilled to see it moving forward and adding new features.

While I too use Dropbox, Droplr serves a different function for me. It's almost like a dumping ground where I put files I'm not interested in organizing, but want to keep and/or share.

I use Droplr for:
- Screenshots for support emails.
- Quick files to friends.
- URL shortening.
- Adding links to files in my todo manager, which doesn't support attachments.

Forgot to mention my favorite use-case. I love how Droplr shows you many times an item has been viewed. This can be handy when collaborating with someone so you can get a feel for when and what they're working on. It's funny getting a "Looks great!" reply from someone when Droplr tells me they haven't even looked at it yet.

I would love any feedback on the design, usability, and sounds (which I'm particularly fond of).

I keep KeyUp minimized and running all the time so I can type away to the splendid clatter of a typewriter.

Spotlight is nice, when it works, but there's always a need for very specific, scoped searching like Find Any File (FAF) provides.

FAF is necessarily slow as it looks at files as-need, instead of looking at an index like Spotlight. I prefer this as FAF isn't always running in the background taking up resources like Spotlight's mds process. And since I have an SSD, searching is pretty darn fast with FAF anyways.

I mostly use FAF for stuff that Spotlight won't do, like searching inside bundles (applications, frameworks, plugins, etc) to find icons and sounds that Spotlight won't find. Also, FAF has QuickLook, so I can easily see files right in these search results.

I usually start by casting a wide net with my FAF searches, then I further filter the results that come up by file extension. Very handy.

Overall, I find myself using FAF twice a week or so. It's just nice to know I have it when Spotlight isn't behaving.

Wow, absolute genius. I used apps like App Tamer, but the "all or nothing" solution wasn't want I wanted. Being able to dial down an app, but keep it running, makes so much sense.

I find myself using TextSoap on a weekly basis. It's nice looking and very well laid out.
