Disklens is an effective search tool. It's fast, it's handy in the menu bar, and it sorts the results in sensible fashion. I ran the trial version for about 10 minutes on my home iMac and then made the easy decision to purchase it. I have now installed it on my office iMac and have already used it for three searches. I asked the developer about an additional search feature and within minutes he got back to me to say he would look into it. Thus, Disklens is the hands of a congenial and responsive developer. Finally, in my view the price is a fair one. I recommend you give Disklens a trial run.

I really like this app. It's fast, easy to use, exports maps quickly. It simply works. It was obvious after only a few minutes use that a donation was in order...so I sent one along. Emanuele was quick to reply and to send along a non-nagging version.

Most of those who use RapidWeaver to design websites already know the value of YourHead's plugin tools for extending design in useful directions. Stacks is a startling and brilliant innovation; it provides the user a leap in page design capability. Stacks is easy to use and produces superb results. Isaiah Carew, the developer of Stacks and other YourHead plugins, is meticulous in his work and that attention to detail shows in the way Stacks was conceived and in the way it works. I am using Stacks to create pages for courses that I teach; Stacks allows me to combine schematics, photos, and descriptive text in ways that are attractive and effective in displaying information. Still in beta as I write, the plugin is stable and the initial documentation and screencasts will get a new user up and running in short order. If you are a user of RapidWeaver, or if you are considering RapidWeaver as a website design tool, give Stacks a close look. I think you will immediately begin imagining page designs that Stacks will enable you to undertake.

Evernote has become indispensable application for me. I am using it to collect material for three of my university courses-and I will be asking my freshman students to begin using it from day one. I will also be calling Evernote to my colleagues' attention. I need to keep my home and office computers in synch as much as possible. Evernote is an effective repository for material as well as a quick tool for synchronizing content for a number of different projects. I am a Mac user and will soon have an iPod touch in hand and will be using the Evernote mobile, thus allowing me to capture content no matter where I am.

I am a university professor and I make use of a growing number of YouTube and Google videos (public lectures on political topics, for example). I tried out a number of applications for locating and downloading the videos. iTubeX Ultimate topped my list for ease of use. I tried it for a few days and then purchased it. iTubeX Ultimate's developer continues to improve its functionality (today's release includes the ability to search sources from within the application--nice touch). I recommend giving it a try. It's a first-rate application.

The only haxie I have used is WindowShade. I gave the new version a whirl. It didn't work for me (running on a new iMac, 10.5.2). When clicked, windows ended up nearly out of view (just a few millimeters showed above the bottom edge of my screen) and in the wrong corner. I uninstalled it. I will wait for a later version.

iClipboard is working without a hitch for me now. After a rocky start, which was brief in any case, this version of the app has hit the mark. I appreciate the fixes put out by the folks at Chronos. They were quick to respond to the problems and the inconvenience on my end was minor. Give iClipboard a look.

I have anxiously awaited a version that would run under Leopard and now it's here. It works without a hitch. If you previously used this wonderful little app and then moved up to Leopard, give this beta a whirl.
