I don't know if Evernote is the only one to blame (or Macupdate ?) here for mixing up versions, information about each version and reviews related to a given version..., but I can't even evaluate this product as what is written above is wrong first of all: I read 10.5.8 PPC/Intel ...but the version v 3.0.2 which can be downloaded here from from Macupdate obviously doesn't work with 10.5.8/PPC (on Evernote's site, I can't even identiify any version number, but it says that for Mac the OS 10.6.6 or higher is required ...with no obvious link or solution towards an older version of Evernote working on 10.5.8 PPC)

Besides, I agree with Dasein888 below about the issues with the concept in the first place, i.e. the proprietary format and the concept of storing (all?!) your (possibly numerous or important) notes in this propiretary format somewhere on a very small unknown "cloud" in the cyberspace (and when this product/service is supposed to be before anything else an easy to use universal light word processing and filing tool...). I tested briefly Evernote with my phone (Android 2.2) and with a browser online (Firefox 3.6.23 Mac OS 11.5.8)... and my main feeling, before any technical consideration is a bad feeling about this whole concept (including the possiblility of taging my notes with my automatic location thanks to Google !). If you are a (grown-up) kid, or in sales or PR, this kind of stuff, like Facebook, with photos and chats and links, online for everyone, may be ok, on top of a dozen of other "sharing and storing networks"; but not for just personal quick (and possibly onfidential) notes, mainly for yourself... They should just call it "syncing", and with more open formats...

Evernote should leard from Skitch their new property (weird, shouldn't it be the other way round; business angels sometimes walk on their heads !), the exellent Skitch is an amazing small tool on an Android 2.2 phone ! (not tested it yet on my mac)... Should learn why ...beause on Macupdate the old version of Skitch working on 10.5.8/PPC is still there (for how long ?) and it is clearly explained with even a link towards the other newer version working only on 10.6.6 well ...cool app, coll info ...bad app, bad info !

I wrote this review in order to do better justice to CoconutBattery v2.7 and improve its rating -3.5 stars- by comparison with Battery Health monitor v -4.5 stars-. In my view the former deserves at least the same rating as the latter !
in fact, well, I avow... I couldn't compare exactly right now the 2 above versions; I could only compare these 2 products on 2 PPC macs (I had no Intel mac available), one iBook G4 with OS 10.4.11 et the other Powerbook G4 with OS 10.5.8; CoconutBattery v2.7 works only on Intel macs; so I could only use respectively:
OS 10.4.11/iBookG4 CoconutBattery v2.6.7 & Battery Health Monitor vv1.5
OS 10.5.8/PowerbookG4alu CoconutBattery v2.6.7 & Battery Health Monitor v1.2 to v1.5
The key issue is that Battery Health Monitor, whaterver the version, cannot read (at all or partly) the battery status data on the PowerbookG4alu as the developer Sonora Graphics acknowledges candidly on its website (recommanding to use older versions such as v1.2, but it didn't work at all in my case)... while CoconutBattery works well in all cases without a glitch !

For the record (yes I know it shouldn't be here ^v^ !), similarily I used the excellent "iStat pro" v4.9.2 widget by http://islayer.com/apps/istatpro/ on both mchines & OS without any problem; iStat pro has, on top of many useful indicators about your machine, has a small section with your battery key figures
(just a very minor issue: below the key battery figures, a bit weird and rather unuseful (?) large white bar which I suppose is some kind of visual indicator (?) I say weird because this bar is topped by the word "Unknown" on the PowerbookG4alu ? and this word becomes "Charged" on the iBookG4 -anyway I can, amongst the figures, read "charge: 100%"-, but this bar may mean something else ?)
[Version 2.7]
