I bought DVDxDV when it was first released with a "permanent license key." The "permanent license key" no longer works, and the developer insists I pay another license fee even though I've already bought a permanent key. Prospective buyers should be aware of the developer's dishonesty.

I've had this app for a couple of weeks, and I bet I use it at least 10 times a day. What a brilliant idea. A lot of the utility is also available in iMessages, but BeamApp works smoother.

In iMessages you first have to either enter your iPhone number or look it up. In BeamApp it's all preconfigured.

One feature I really like is beaming a URL from the iPhone to the Mac, as BeamApp actually opens up web pages for you on your Mac so it's ready and waiting on you when you get back to the Mac.

Just today I updated so I can now send text back and forth between the two devices. Who knows what's next.

The BeamApp is yet one more reason to get an iPhone and a Mac.

Ecoute is a great app that I generally use instead of iTunes. It would be greater still if it incorporated AirPlay.

When will we see AirPlay in a future update?

I purchased as part of either a MUpromo or MacZot while using 10.6.2, am now on 10.6.3. I like the design and the interactiveness--however it constantly crashes and is really not useable. I'm disappointed but looking forward to an update to correct the crashing.

If I could give Lightzone negative stars, I would. I first got LZ in a software bundle two or so years ago when I was running 10.4 with a G4 PB. I tried again when I upgraded to 10.5. It crashed upon every attempted launch, asking me if I wanted to reset the settings. I did. Still crashed. I now have an Intel MBP, and it does the same thing with v3.8.5. It's a piece of crap. They should pay me $200 for the time I've spent on this piece of junk. If it was freeware, I wouldn't waste my time or hard drive space to download it.

v3.9: Still a piece of crap. Never launches. It crashes with this message,"Unexpected failure Error starting Java virtual machine." There's no crash report log so it can't be reported to Apple or the developer(s)--whoever they are. Again, if I could make this zero stars, I'd make it zero stars.

Also works on PPC running 10.5. Very easy. No fuss. Most incredible, the developer is very responsive and open to ideas.

This might work well with a screen capture to QuickTime app such as iShowU. That way you wouldn't have to make PDFs or worry about losing previous thoughts.

I just downloaded and installed v 0.4.1. Wow! James Chan is to be congratulated. This is great. It works perfectly. On a side note, I wrote a review the other day and gave 0.3.5 six stars out of five and v 0.4 just one star. Mr. Chan and I have corresponded, and I have told him my difficulties and he has been very generous with his time to try and resolve this. I hope that has been helpful to him because this works great. This gets 10 stars out of five.
