Don't waste your money. I tried the previous version for a while and, though it had a disturbing tendency to crash while loading every fourth map or so (sending the syslog process into hyperactivity, jacking up the heat/fan and slowing my entire computer down...), I thought I'd plump for 6.0 on the theory that they probably fixed what ailed it and I was getting tired of going into Parallels to play Risk.

Bad choice.

Aside from the fact that I still haven't received my license code after two days, the same problems remain: if you play different maps, inevitably, one of the maps won't load and syslog will go nuts. You can kill the process but sometimes that doesn't do it, so you have to kill it again. Or several times. Eventually, everything returns to normal, but it starts again the next time you boot up. Oh, and this problem persists on both my laptop and my family iMac, so I'm pretty sure it's not just me, but it's the code.

Anyway, I know I'm the sucker for trusting the developer, but like I said, I've always been a Risk fan. In this case, the risk cost 25 bucks and was definitely not worth it. Take my advice and stay away.

This is a brilliant program and a perfect solution for anyone who needs to keep anywhere from a few to a few hundred files secure and, if you use the file mimicking feature, hidden in plain sight. File mimicking is a very, very useful option and makes this app a superior solution to anything else I've tried, paid or not. The app is fast and easy to use and the developer is the most responsive and helpful I've yet run across.
