Have it installed for ages and it does it’s job in the background, like a purring cat.

Strangely the lastest version 2.2.2 doesn’t work right on my MacBook, running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

Problem is: It’s not possible to tick any of the checkboxes on or off, mouse clicks somehow don’t get registered as it seems.

v2.2 and v2.1 are working, though.

Great little helper to hide icons on a cluttered desktop. A feature that set's it apart similar tools is a shortcut (mouse click on the desktop) to show your desktop content inside a new Finder window.

To round it off I would suggest the following additions:

- make the menu bar item optional (the show/hide state info appears not that important to me, altough some might be other opinion)

- make a "alt-click" on the desktop hiding the frontmost app's windows like in normal finder operation

BTW: DesktopSweeper (APE module) has those 2 features, but doesn't work in Snow Leopard anymore.

I did prefer the former simpler graphics of the dashboard widget, is there a way go get back to these more minimalistic looking plates?

Great little application! It perfectly expanded some intricate eBay-webarchive files, which WebArchive Folderizer (1.2.5) didn't.

Seems to be a interesting tool. Shame, that nobody else thought about how useful something like this could be, before. So, kudos to the developer!

DownloadComment is great because it also puts the download path in the file comment if you drag&drop some file (e.g. an image) into your finder windows or to the desktop!

Therefore: Great little helper!

I hope we will see a new version of APE working on Leopard soon, so we can get DesktopSweeper running there too!

I think, still no other "hide-icons-on-desktop" comes close to it, neither in simplicity nor in speed.

I advise anyone to be cautious with this codec, although this codec has a long development cycle and some good features, I think it makes more problems than it solves.

Let's take for example this QuickTime encoded MPEG-4 video:


if I have 3ivx installed on my MDD Dual G4 it crashes the host application (QuickTime Player, Safari, etc.) when opening the movie! When I remove the 3ivx codec, it plays nicely.

Download Link not valid right now?!

Most recent version doesn't work for me. Although it does upload files to the GMail account, I can't see or access them from within gDisk. If I check my account via the web frontend all uploaded files are there.

I don't know why, but in almost every other release of Transmission, the "magnifying glass" button doesn't work (it normally should bring up the finder and open the window where the downloaded file is located).

And v1.50 again is a "other" release. ;-(

Sorry, I really like Transmission for it's sleekness, but this one drives me crazy.

Running v1.50 on OS X 10.4.11 (Intel).
