Together syncing doesn't work on iCloud. I'm sure the issue is iCloud but that doesn't relieve Reinvented Software from responsibility. They released a product that they claimed synced through iCloud and it doesn't. I've lost half my records. I've also emailed support 4 times imploring them for a fix or workaround and they haven't even responded. To be fair, I've written to them about issues other than syncing and they have responded.

I want their software to work and I want to switch from Yojimbo, but I need their database and sync to be bulletproof. Right now it's not close.

I wrote a glowing review of this product recently but I have to update my rating.

I just installed Lil Snitch. There should be another category for rating of developer integrity. Here's a list of the servers Yojimbo is talking to:

There's no option to turn it off and no notification they are SELLING your data without permission.

I'm having a few issues with large memory consumption. I had to write in, not to talk about that but to mention that the support I'm getting is outstanding - or should I say FANTASTIC! Kent has been working with me for quite a while trying to iron this out - so far it appears to be an issue on my side, not with the software.

Would I prefer a better/updated UI? Sure. Would I prefer they use DropBox instead of (whatever). Absolutely. HOWEVER. This software works as advertised. I've got it syncing on three different computers and it's flawless. I just bought Yojimbo for iPad - again syncing is flawless.

When this first came out I tried it for about two days, read the other reviews and decided it was time to switch. I bought Together and liked the UI, liked that I didn't have to pay for syncing, etc. After 2 weeks were up, I never could get it to pick my iCloud database for my laptop. Then I started seeing red entries - meaning it couldn't find the file. I gave up on Together after seeing half of my 1200+ entries show up missing. I switched back to Yojimbo and like I said earlier - flawless syncing.

At the end of the day, I want something I can rely on and Yojimbo is the best choice for me.

I prefer VMWare to Parallels mostly because my Mac is more useable when I run VMWare. The reason I'm commenting today is because VMWare's web store is down and won't process my CC or Paypal transactions. This is EXACTLY the same issue I had with Fusion 5 - unbelievable that no one seems to notice.

Dowe Gettum and Howe! Paid $10 last night; can't download (getting a permission denied error 403), so I go to the support forum to let them know. You have to pay $100 to post to the support forum. I think I'll instead cut my losses at $10.

Remote sync stopped working since I moved to Lion (despite the suggestion to delete items in my Keychain). This has been the most frustrating piece of software I've ever purchased. The auto mode (when working) was a dream. The manual mode is a nightmare and it's apparently intended to be. After contacting the developer multiple times it's clear to me he feels it's working as intended.

I did give it an extra star for making the uninstall painless.

This is an awesome piece of software. I use it multiple times per day (the Mac version as well as the iPhone app). They make getting logged in to secure sites painless - I can use long, complicated, (hard to break) passwords and yet can quickly log in. They keep a password history if you're one to change passwords often.

Awesome stuff - I HIGHLY recommend it.

The flashing red screen mentioned is now a flashing white screen...
