Crashes instantly upon use. Impressive.

I like the subtlety of this app. No annoying Growl alerts popping up -- just a soft-glow icon when new tweets arrive.

Unless you are fluent in German, this widget will not be useful. Have a look at the Weather Underground widget instead.

Too many designers ruined the soup on this one. Flock is now in the same class as Opera; a good idea gone awry. There are buttons all over the place on this browser, for god knows what.

Also, anyone who thinks Flock is faster than Safari is drunk. At this stage of the game, webkit is simply faster than mozilla, end of story. If you are perceiving it otherwise, it is either alcohol or wishful thinking (or both) that is to blame.

So much money, so little functionality.

One warning to potential Google Desktop users: This is a very poorly-supported project. Do not expect to get responses from Google via email or via posting to the Google Desktop group in Google groups. You are essentially on your own if you hit any snags.

Minor quibble with the latest version: the b&w icon should be reinstated. Color looks out of place on the Safari toolbar.

Its amazing that after all these year, Opera *still* has not figured out the Mac UI. Back to the drawing board, guys.

Why on earth would you shell out for this when a far more robust statistical package, R, is available for free. Another bafflingly overpriced Mac app. (and there are many)

Give me a break. The UI?

R is for building statistical models, not painting pretty pictures. Anyone who is serious about doing stats on OSX will be using R, not StatPlus. I'm wondering who on earth is going to pay $200 for this software; it appears only to be able to do very rudimentary statistical tests. Can it do generalized linear models? Nope. Bayesian statistics? Nope.

Save your money.

The main issue I have with LaTeXiT is that often the very top, bottom or side of an equation will be cut off. I have tried modifying the font size, but this does not fix the problem reliably. Is there a solution to this?
