The good, bad and ugly.

Good: When it works, it works well. It pulls down lyrics, art, dates, names, etc.

Bad: It doesn't have a lot of customization (yet). It needs to allow for more consistency in tagging per an individual user's likes. Do I want all text in Title Caps (with prepositions in small text), etc.? Then again, perhaps it's using the label's metadata/tagging and keeping that "original" to the label.

Ugly: This thing cannot get through more than about 20 songs without bombing. It's just constantly bombing. I would like to just select my entire library, and run it and have it beef all my metadata up. Currently, not a chance.

I was so excited to get Steam. I was even more psyched that it installed like a real Mac App, just drag it into the app folder. And then I was totally bummed beyond belief to see the following error:

"Steam requires that /Applications/ be created on a *****case insensitive**** filesystem, with read-write access."

Are you freak'n french fry kidding me? The only other company so lazy as to not modify some file system string code is Adobe. Their solution for installing Acrobat Pro on a system with case sensitivity is to WIPE it clean.

Let me provide you an alternative. You can make a case insensitive read-writeable disk image and install the application in that. Then drag out the application and put it on your dock. Then every time you click on the app, the OS will automatically mount the DMG image and run the app. It's a ridiculous solution.

I hope they fix this. The case sensitivity has been a primary format option for years.

Ummm, other than telling people who have case sensitive file systems how to actually use Steam without wiping their hard drive, reformatting and reinstalling everything just to use Steam...yea I guess there was no value in helping people out by giving them the disk image workaround.

I *think* that version 2 is better. If I recall, version 2 had an "auto" preset feature where iWow would see the genre of the music you're playing, and automatically load the sound profile/preset that best matches that genre. This seems to be gone in 3? Also, if you install 3, even after you uninstall it, you cannot reinstall 2. The installer keeps saying you have a newer version on your drive (even though you uninstalled it).

So if you're unsure. Don't install this. I just paid $10 for the upgrade. It sounds basically as good, but I'm really bummed at the loss of the auto preset feature.

Thanks, but I uninstalled and did that, and it still won't re-install. I'm not sure why. I actually want to downgrade because the auto feature really was great. :(
