A superb application for the musician. It will do everything that the paid music analysis apps do - and for free. Very powerful. And with the available plug-ins permits such procedures as chord analysis, beat and bar tracking, as well as slow-down, pitch change...in fact it really can do most anything a musician wants

@Prince_Isaac Your humour is a bit laboured - and I bet you spell those words 'humor' and 'labored'...

As a long-time user of Book Hunter and DVD Hunter I was pleased to see the release of Library Hunter. The trouble is it is a beta and it shows. I have had lock-up after lock-up when editing author names and then returning to the list. Moreover the functionality is much less than with Book Hunter. The available sources for data look-up are limited; there is no Export function; and it only seems possible to auto-complete when entering a new title. So for now I'll stick to Book Hunter and hope that Library Hunter will evolve.

I am finding Roccat Browser very fast and I like many of its features. But for the life of me I can't find any way to get it to launch without opening all the tabs from my last session. (I'd prefer it to launch with blank page, or a designated Home page.) Am I missing something?

@Sarah Lee Thanks for the info. I can confirm that this works. However it is rather non-standard behaviour. I would prefer a preference to open either with a blank page, a designated home page or a full tab restore.

@Thomas Langley. Delighted to see your response. An already great browser becomes even better...

Excellent utility. I had a small problem with updating from an earlier version. I emailed the developer who replied immediately and helpfully and produced a fix within a couple of days. Highly recommended!

An excellent application for creating greeting cards. It comes with a large selection of templates to which you can add your own shapes, text and graphics. I had a minor issue after downloading and received exemplary service from the developer who responded immediately, courteously and effectively. Highly recommended!

Interesting minimalist UI with no Menu commands at all. But it does the job rather well. The ability to loop continuously over a chosen section of a music file at reduced tempo but unaltered pitch is invaluable for transcribing purposes. Very promising programme.

Since they can't be bothered to tell us what is new in this version I don't feel like being bothered to download it. I did go to the Picasa site to see if I could find what had changed and found the following link:-

For a list of the cool new stuff in Picasa 3.9, check out the Picasa 3.9 release notes.

When I clicked on this it took me to a page where it said:-

We're sorry, but the information you've requested cannot be found. Please try searching or browsing the Help Center.

How very helpful!!

Why would one pay for this when the free LibreOffice can open WordPerfect documents?

Version 2.2 is problematical for me. The icon does not appear in the Menu Bar so I cannot access the settings.

I have found the fix for this. On relaunching after updating, MacAppBlocker was in Stealth Mode - hence no Menu Bar icon. So all is well. Great programme, highly recommended!

Version 1.7 crashes on launch for me. Version 1.4 is fine.

The previous version I tried had no "Quit" menu item - the current version has a non-functional "New..." menu item. Come on developer - please do more testing before release

This version looked more promising as a video upload seemed to go to completion. However during the completing upload process the following error message appeared:-
[Line 1, Column 585, element gphoto:timestamp] Text content must be non-negative: -2082844800000 (status 400)
Whatever this means, the result is that I still can't upload videos to my Picas web albums.

I am unable to upload .mp4 videos using the standalone Picas Web Albums Uploader. After around 1MB has uploaded the error message "An error prevented uploading from completing. Error NSURLErrorDomain -1" appears.
Using the iPhoto plug-in the Upload option is dimmed if I select an .mp4 video.
This is disappointing as I was hoping at last to be able to upload videos to my Picas Albums.

It is fast. But there is an annoying bug if you by mistake try to connect to the computer you are running the programme on - it seems to go into an unstoppable loop whereby it shows multiple copies of that machine's screen.

Yes, I see that you are correct. Chicken of the VNC displays the same behaviour.
