I noticed there haven't been any comments on this in a while. I'm running the latest version of Mountain Lion and have the latest version of this installed (2.6.1) (non-Mac App Store version). I love this program. Whatever issues it had before with CPU usage are not there now. It's stable as far as I can tell (never had any crashing issues).

I don't have to open my calendar to find out what events are upcoming. It embeds right onto my desktop. 'Nuff said.

Here's my take: I own a license to SongGenie and I thought I'd give Jaikoz a try to compare the two programs.

I listen to mostly mainstream type music that should be easily identified by programs like these, and SongGenie was more accurate and filled in more missing metadata than Jaikoz.

Not to say that Jaikoz is bad at it, but it's nothing to write home about.

But the BIGGEST downfall of Jaikoz compared to more polished programs like SongGenie is the interface: ITS HORRIBLE. It follows NONE of Apple's User Experience guidelines, is slow to start up and quit, and is generally unappealing.

You could have the most powerful program in the world, but it doesn't do much good if its too complicated for the average person to use.

In contrast, SongGenie is beautiful, with a well-thought-out interface, and easy to learn.

Not a "real" application.

This is a Filemaker database turned into a run-time application, hence the Windows / OS X functionality. As far as I can tell, there is no mobile version, which really negates any usefulness of this app.

Compared to other productivity apps (Omnifocus, Things, or the awesome TheHitList), this program is HORRIBLE!! The interface is extremely un-mac-like and stressed me out just looking at it.

The price is crazy, even at a discount. Look for The Hitlist (in Beta form, abandoned software for the most part, but fully functional, supremely awesome, and free since it's still in beta). Unfortunately, there's no mobile version of The Hitlist since it's been abandoned.
