I'm confused by the "Today" function. Seemingly, it should show all the items due ... today. But this doesn't appear to be the case. Items due in other "areas of responsibility" don't appear in my Daily Review/Today area on the day they are due. To see them, I have to navigate to their specific "areas." Twice now, I've missed due items because of this.

On the other hand, I find Tags very helpful and they work well. The interface is clean and the iOS app is very useable.

Many thanks ... I breathe a sigh of relief. Whew...

For heaven's sake, who ever thought my Mac should look like an address book from the 50's!

Running 10.8.2 on a Retina MBP. Installed this after seeing a review in LifeHacker.

Locks the screen with a simple shortcut. But once locked, the unlock process is not clear. No on-screen button ... after a few experiments I could click to shutdown. I didn't want that. And the button seemed to do nothing. The battery meter wasn't much use. So eventually, I found that simply typing the password from the locked screen did the trick.

However, I was not able to find a way to click the menubar icon and access the submenu settings. The help video on the developer's site did not load, so no joy their.

Not bad ... but not polished. I find a quick, one-step lock useful ... not sure this is it.

I downloaded and installed a trial copy of DO. When I first launched it, DO asked for my password for "permission to make changes." This didn't appear as the standard Mac installing new software screen.

Nothing in the ReadMe explained the use/purpose for the password ... and I was unable to select and proceed without my password, so I deleted DO.

I'm sure this is benign, but what an unfortunate choice of words.

Quick "correction," the "permission to make changes" screen DOES appear for things like Attachment Tamer ... apps that add functionality by using bundles.

iCal continues to disappoint while BusyCal improves. But the missing link for business users is a connection to MS Exchange. Many of us have no choice.

I've been using Fantastical for calendar entry. It connects thru iCal to Exchange.) And I'm considering using BusyCal for its excellent interface ... a sort of read-only window into the parts of my life that are controlled by Exchange. If this works well, I could recommend this to many of my users.

Has anyone tried this ... and discovered problems/issues?

TIA

An excellent application ... a workhorse on my desktop. My only wish is that it were integrated with ActiveSync so that I could send out invitations from within QC. (BTW- is there anything sloooower than the App Store? Whew.)

Curious ...

The latest version requires that Safari be shut down before installing the update. Wondering why that would be necessary.

As I write this comment, with the installer in the background, the "You must close Safari ..." box has begun popping up in front of Safari repeatedly.

Taking a pass for now ...

FWIW - This cropped up with the new Office 2011 install. I suppose it could be an officelive or sharepoint plugin. Just hadn't seen it before.

Definitely resource intense! I am impressed with the features, functions, and speed. But the fact that my CPU jumps up some 20 degrees hotter when RocketBox runs really surprises me. What is happening behind the scenes to be this resource intense? (MBP 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB, 10.6.4) As no one else has reported this, it's possible that it is something in my configuration.

First day of new service and software ... Not able to connect.

Seems like they are not prepared for the roll-out. Is Wunderlist ready for prime-time?

Later in the day ... Wunderlist released an update saying that due to heavy server load they decided to make error reporting less verbose,

Apparently, the desktop app will not open - at least initially - without a network connection.

Literally a non-starter. ;-)

Hmmm ... trying this out and like it much, but my text is not centered in the object, but rather centers in a "box" that extends to the right of the object.

What am I missing?

After the upgrade Lion. it looks like I have an odd issue with ME:

I'll be replying to a message in Mail or moving a window in finder ... and suddenly the window disappears. Sometimes I find it down at the bottom left of the screen, with only the title bar showing. Other times, it will "walk" to the bottom of the screen on its own ... a "stutter step at a time," while I try in vain to stop it.

In Mail, this tends to happen if I start typing in the reply before the Genie has openened the message all the way. In the Finder, it seems to happen if I move a window too quickly to the edge of a screen or across to my second monitor."

The problem stops as soon as I turn off Menu Everywhere. I've written BB but no response so far.

Since my upgrade to Lion, my Console floods with "kernel: IPV6 Non Local address" messages. Turn off GB and the messages go away.

I've worked with the developer - VERY responsive - but haven't been able to solve the problem. So far, the conclusion has been that it it is a bug in Lion.

With the 10.7.2 no more messages in the console. Great to see this. GB is best in class and Peter is a fine, responsive developer

I have removed WideMail. I like it very much, but it doesn't fit my work habits. But now I've lost the column in individual mailboxes and in the View>Columns menu. Does anyone know how to restore this?

Alas ... the SBOD.

Was very interested in managing my airport locations and did a quick download, but all I get is the spinning ball of death each time I I click on the menubar icon ...

Excellent response from the developer: timely and thorough. The working theory is that something blocked network traffic. Perhaps Little Snitch. I cannot replicate so the problem is open, I suppose. But the Dev gets "high marks." AL now working at home and work.

There may be a conflict between Airlock and the OSX ScreenSaver. When the regular time-out on my screen-saver kicks in, it is set to lock the screen. But when Airlock has also locked my screen AND I do not have my iPhone nearby, I click on the unlock padlock in the lower right portion of my screen BUT I cannot get the cursor into the Airlock dialog box. I cannot enter my password and am stuck. Ugh. The solution -- so far -- has been a restart.
