Is the only device that can "run" the products of this software sill the iPad? If so, that, to me, is not a good thing about it. I'd thought Apple would eventually work up a compatible reader for the mac, if not iPod and iPhone and maybe non-Apple devices, but perhaps not. Until they do, I'll stick with other "book writing" software and miss the advantages of this if there's any.

Mistyped "still" as "sill" in first line.

It seems the AU VST plug-in version (sold on site) and the mac app store stand alone version are sold separately and don't include each other?

yes, so say developer who was very quick to respond with links to tutorials and the like which were very clear and succinct. Would give good stars just for that, but haven't tried program yet.

Downloaded via program's update, but it wouldn't launch so reverted to previous version 2.02. Maybe it's just me, or download corrupted, on Lion current version. Otherwise, like the program.

Living out in the sticks, third world, or second and a half world sticks with slow and iffy internet connection, the large download is problematic. What happened to the hard copy version of Lion Apple said might come? Guess these questions better sent to Apple, but... you know ...they are busy.

Question: how's the app store on interrupted downloads, like when your ISP goes off semi-regularly?

Question: Snow Lion doesn't install immediately after download without user interaction does it? I'd hate for it to finish downloading in middle of night and install without my final decision on when and where to install.

Can't get disk image to open, Finder says "Legacy disk image should be converted", on Lion. Tried 3 downloads.

Was kind of hoping for iBooks 2 for mac, or at least set the underpinnings for it: if they don't do that I will instinctively reassess my opinion of Apple's marketing and education strategy. Hope it's snappier because in Apple's list of changes there doesn't seem much for all the size as I've had few glaring issues except for having to rebuild launchpad's database reading a few times.

Good for Kindle, allowing their books on what seems most any device: wish apple would do same. Had one complaint that graphics didn't seem to show up in mac edition, not sure if this version corrects that and if previous purchases have to be downloaded again if graphics now show. I haven't spent a lot of time reading on screen, been busy, but even if the execution is not quite right (not sure), the ability to send them almost effortlessly to various devices is what I give it the stars for.

just a note: is this thing with the portable devices a replay of the apple/microsoft "battles" of last century wherein microsoft got the "market advantage" by having their stuff run on many hardware (computer) manufacturers (to oversimplify, I suppose)?

Oops, if you bought this at app store, shouldn't install this, I did and wouldn't work, fortunately I'd CC (carbon copied) Sys disk and replaced this download with previous app, which again worked.

Bought this since son needs it in school. I've only tried Word and there the one really big complaint for me is the dictionary is online; because of that I don't use it; If they offered option to use mac dictionary I might fire it up for large prose that required sync with Windows based computers.

Doesn't seem to support audio units (question); couldn't find any reference to them on their web site.

I have to say I like it, despite the adobe thing and all that. Been using for years, tried others, but for purely editing personal photos, either scanned from 100 years ago or taken last week, the program does what I need it to do though sometimes I got to mess around to get things looking OK (enough memory for undos make this not so bad). Can't compare with other programs much as I've stuck with this, despite upgrade fees. Don't think I'd use it to make a graphic from scratch and don't use it for importing photos/scans, but it's name doesn't imply those tasks. Rate today as I'm scanning whole heap of old photos taken out of storage.
