Great app, but DON'T download 34.0.1847.116 version. Seems some basic functionality is broken. On two different computers with 34.0.1847.116 tried going to google images and right clicking an image to download it. Crashes the program every time.
I don't know what else is broken, but the complications of downgrading if you run into trouble are enough of a headache for most people to probably want to stick with 33.xx for now

... I can now add "quits on launch" to the basic functionality problems I was having.:(

Great player, clean interface with lots of advanced options (just took me a sec to find them). Much prefer to vlc or mplayer

Upgraded to Mybricks, um Mavericks last week. Surely Apple must have learned from past recent failures, I thought.
Everything went fine for two days, then Final Cut Pro X started getting flakey... Then I realized my iPhone wasn't backing up because I hadn't been using iCloud now the only option. Mad about that, but tried to reason it would simplify things for everyone. Wish they'd told me..... But now after sudden and inexplicable Finder flakeyness my iMac WILL. NOT. START. AT. ALL.
wtf Apple?!?!! flagship app FCPX is flakey, ios7 failed to deliver half my messages
You killed iDisk, MobileMe, duplicated all my contacts when iCloud launched, Maps is a disaster, but , oh "Just trust us" with all my info now
I'm not a troll -check my history. This OS upgrade sucks and Apple's messed up soo much lately... Going back to pen and paper

To clarify: safe boot doesn't work, Diskwarrior says the disk is physically corrupted, disk utility says the same (booted from dvd and via target disk mode respectively). Recovery mode at least got me to a screen for restoring from Time machine (don't understand how there could be "physical corruption" and that works). Anyway, now trying to recover from backup I did just prior to upgrade.
Apple discussions boards have a number of people with the same problems

Partial retraction - there may have been some bad sectors on the drive and after a Time Machine restore everything seems to be functioning normally and a little quicker than Mountain Lion 10.8.5 was

RavenNevermore, I would totally agree - the drive seems like it's borked, but after the reinstall everything is working great and the drive was a Crucial ssd that was only a year old. Also, other people were reporting weird, but severe problems like mine.
Again, I re-installed from a backup and all's working great now. DriveDX says the ssd is 100% fine.
What I found outrageous was that somebody else would have been screwed, lost their data, and shipped off their hard drive for replacement for what was apparently actually a Mavericks software glitch triggered by a Apple's update.
Anyway, I'm giving it 5 stars to balance things out.
I generally do like it a lot now, even though it blew up in my face initially.
Thanks for weighing in - I'd forgotten I'd left it rated at one star.

Just adding my name to the list of people that DON'T work for the company and are very happy with this program. It's recovered more data - pictures, docs, video, etc - and more quickly than any other app I've tried, including Data Rescue and Mac Data Recovery.
The only thing it couldn't fully recover were a few pictures that had been overwritten. I could only see half of those image and the other half showed random data. No other app could recover those either. Pretty hard to recover stuff that's been overwritten.

Went hunting because Spotlight was frequently locking up my computer as it indexed files. I tried removing some folders from Spotlight's indexing sweep, but it was still a problem. Tried a few apps, but Quicksilver's been the best and then some.

Where's 64-bit for Mac? Not like Google doesn't have enough developers under their roof. Also, Google's sense of user interface graphics is lame - mostly evident trying to teach people basic things like where certain preferences are (often buried and undifferentiated) in Chrome as they are in the other Google product I use a lot - Gmail. Anyway, I ppreciate that they're free.

Couldn't figure out why my hard drive wouldn't show in the popup menu of drives to rebuild. Responsive tech support (returned my call 5 mins after I left a message) let me know it's because Diskwarrior 4.4 disc is running Snow Leopard and can't decrypt my Filevault 2 (Lion or Mountain Lion) - encrypted disc.
Two optionss - create a bootable Lion or ML disc image with DW on it or use target disc mode
Been using the program for years and it's performed wonders for me. Alsoft is apparently at Apple's mercy for when Apple releases Lion or Mountain Lion to developers like them. Glad this hiccup was just that - a hiccup

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have to use twitter for work and having Tweetbot's ease and functionality on my desktop is a Godsend.

Apple, what gives? My desktop's hung at the grey linen screen with jsust a cursor showing after this update. I repaired permissions and updated using the combo updater - as I always do with point updates. Don't know what to do next...

I clicked "Sync notes" in iTunes, but when I click "Apply" iTunes a syncs everything else, but unchecks "sync notes" and doesn't transfer the notes on my first generation ipod touch to the mail app. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks. That worked for me. Thought I'd already tried re-plugging, but I guess not. :)

Been trying to uninstall all remnants of this program, but I can't figure out where part of it is - it's still listed as a possible web browser when I chose a default browser in Safari's preference pane. Help, please.

It's saving video files as mp3 for me. Changing the file name doesn't allow me to see the video, still just the audio.

My dock won't auto-hide since this update. Not sure the two are related but an odd coincidence if it's not.
