"Voila" is designed to capture screen, simple image editing an sharing. That's not much, but it does it very well. Screen capture is what you expect, plus a bit more (like capture from isight). Image editing allows resize, add text, arrows, plus some simple drawing tools. Finally, you can easily distribute the result, sending it by email, to flickr or an ftp account.

All in all, the only question is: is this application worth its price tag? Consider it if you share & annotate images once or twice per day. Other users can do with less expensive solutions!

I have been looking for an easy & light solution to know what movies I have backed up where. This means I need to identify a movie, and know on which disk/hard drive it is. None of these are actually on my laptop HD. Looks like a good match with Multiplex, right?

Unfortunately not... let me tell you what doesn't work for me:
1) Presentation - part 1: Images seems to be the most important thing in the world for this app. Fair enough, but what if this is not the case for me? Then I get a black rectangle, with the file name (no extension). Somehow, I also managed to have the black rectangle, without the filename. Then you basically have an invisible movie. Next step, ading an image. Don't do it wrong, because you can't remove it. You can probably change it, but NOT remove it.

2) Presentation - part 2: I don't like the default view (which is similar the the most visited sites in safari 4). The other view is an horizontal scroll, where the scroll bar is not displayed (why??). And going left or right is possible ONLY with mouse keys. And in any case, it doesn't work with the gesture on the trackpad. Last but not least, you will see very few of your movies with this setup...

3) Once you have added the movie to your collection, you remove the media. There is no way to know from which hard drive or disc you have taken this movie from. In my case, it says "disk1", while the volume name is Lacie, and the disk identifier is disk4s1 . I am also pretty sure that Multiplex will not warn me if I try to import the same movie a second time (TBC)

So let's be clear: Multiplex is exactly what I need. It is just lacking a few details, that make it a poor solution for me at the moment.
