I LOVE this program!

Unfortunately, it died with the Snow Leopard update. I don't know how I'm gonna survive without my 3-finger swipe-to-minimize!

Wow. I just dropped so much $ on another popular task manager for my mac AND my iPhone. 3 Weeks of frustration later I find myself avoiding my task manager because it stresses me out to use it.

2 hours after downloading THL I feel like I have control again and it's a joy to use. It thinks the way I do (and is flexible enough to think the way you do too.) Powerful, intuitive, and an elegant Mac app.

Even though THL doesn't have iPhone support (yet), I'm switching.

Finally! Stacks have been fixed!

So, I haven't had a chance to test out all of the items that this update supposedly fixed. But the update went very smoothly (other than talking a bit longer than usual) and all of my systems and applications, shares, networks, and printers seem to be working normally.

Nothing broke. Finder appears to be a little more responsive, and the horrid UI conventions that Stacks gave us have finally been addressed (as long as you change the settings on your stacks to "View as Folder" and "list".) It's also nice to see an opaque menu bar again that I can easily read.

After years of "futzing" with Microsoft Project and countless attempts at trying to use other Mac-only project planning software, here is finally something that works and works well.

Training time: Minimal.
I just went through the built in help step by step while working on my first project. It wasn't long before I'd abandoned it and was well on my way with more complex things.

I think I'll finally get back in control of my projects! Thanks Omni!

ical, website export, tasklist integration is great! Maybe a kind person at Omni would consider adding Basecamp support for tasks and milestones someday. That would be thuper!

I've spent hours futzing with other options over the past few months. The most reliable so far, DynDNS, works well for the most part but now and then the IP doesn't update correctly and I can't connect remotely. Now I finally have something small, out of the way, and EFFECTIVE to connect whenever and wherever I want.

Worked beautifully.

I've been using Dekfinity since the original beta and hade come to rely on it daily. It was a very slick, very efficient program and offered a new way to manage multiple sets of desktop file. As a neat-freak (someone who like their desktop as clean and organized as possible), it was a godsend.

The latest version is a re-write of that initial beta and addresses the only serious problem that users had with it: icon placement was getting lost when desktops were switched. This version replaces the finder desktop rendering completely and keeps your icons placed correctly when switching between desktops.

This structural change, however, introduced the complexity of duplicating finder desktop behavior and doesn't work seamlessly with all applications yet (e.g. you can't drag files from your FTP client or images/text clippings from your browser window to this new "Desktop", the "desktop" icon in the finder still points to the real "Desktop" folder rather than the active one.)

Yes, it expires but that is expected from a Beta program. CodeTek has always been good at having the next version ready in time in the past and I see no reason to speculate that will ever change.

While they still have a ways to go in getting the desktop functions better integrated with the Finder and other applications, this is definitely something to try out if you are a neat freak or might work better with multiple "workspaces".

Highly recommended.

I must admit. After using the "Free" version, I was very hesitant to spend $10 for what I felt was just a few minor enhancements.

oh how I was wrong.

As a web developer, I'm typing URLs all day long and doing searches on boards and forums and software repositories constantly. I had grown very dependent on the URL shortcut feature. Life without it mean typing ful URLs or multiple clicks through bookmark heirarchies.

I caved and paid.

Since that time, the developer has released 2 or 3 revisions. Each has included refinements to existing features as well as introducing new features that really add to the value of saft.

It's definitely been worth twice what I paid for it (or more). But then again, I'm a speed freak and any small utility that allows me to streamline and work more efficiently without hogging my resources is something that is worth $ to me. The more I use it, the more it's worth. Saft is worth more and more each day.

If you don't really have a need for these features, then it's not worth the $ to you and that's understandable. But that doesn't mean the software is of bad quality or the developer is greedy. For those of us that do need, use, and really appreciate time-saving features like this, and out of respect for a developer who is constantly making his product better and better, it's definitely worth it's price.

My only two criticisms (and I only post this to make the developer aware) are:

1) the installation process - the disk image sent to registered users requires a manual removal of the existing version and installation of the new version. I'm not sure why this isn't just packaged as an installer to handle that for me. To be honest, I don't know much about SIMBL and plug-ins (and neither does the average user) and messing with them by hand each time increases the risk that an install won't go as planned.

2) The user interface: It gets the job done and I understand that the developer is working within some constraints set forth by the Safari preference panel. I just wish there were an easier way to browse and edit my shortcuts (I have dozens and dozens.) This is a minor note but I figured it's worth mentioning. If it were simpler to install and use, the average consumer might start to see value in it.

Worth it for the average user? probably not but try it and see for yourself.
A Power-Tool for and advanced user or one who strive's for high productivity? DEFINITELY.

Keep up the good work Hao.
