The 5-star reviews must be fakes. The application endlessly seeks updates that aren't available, won't let you download games (servers too busy), and without asking sets itself to launch on log in.

The application itself is ostensibly based on WebKit, but the scrolling is laggy and the UI is shoddy. It reminds me of an Adobe release (but their software is based off of decades of code).

I'm guessing this application will get better, but 5 stars? No way!

This widget does work, but it also exposes your password. (Click the widget and it will open up a Web browser view with a &Passwd= GET value revealed in plain text.) This is a major security vulnerability. Do not use this widget.

Transmit 4 introduces a new photorealistic app icon that's takes up too much of the frame and is not very appealing (IMO, aesthetic opinions vary). So don't overwrite your copy of Transmit 3 with this new version until you decide whether you want to swap icons.

I bought Flickery a few weeks ago and have been very impressed: loads quickly, lots of preferences, and integrates well with all the features of Flickr. It's definitely the best Flickr client available.

The developer responds to emails and considers feedback. I requested the copyright info in Spotlight comments feature just a week or two ago.

Flickery is a great value. I hope v2.0, if there is one, adds support for multiple account and has a tabbed interface so you can browse individuals' photosets and favorites without leaving your current view.

If you don't like the icon, here's a replacement I found:

I don't write many reviews, but Kitty Spangles Solitaire (KSS) deserves one.

It's an excellent solitaire game with all the major games including Klondike, Freecell, and Spider with plenty of variations for each. It's graphics are nice, and the window resizes brilliantly. It auto-saves your game, so you can quit any time and come back whenever.

The statistics are neat. I've (supposedly) played over 200 hours. It's nice that some game variations are longer than others. Basic instructions are included in-game for each variation. Autocompletion works as intended and saves you a bunch of "housework" when you've essentially already won. It updates via Sparkle too.

Annoyances: the time counts down even when KSS isn't the active window, only one card style (cartoonish, would prefer one or two more to choose from in the preferences), and wish the new hand button and keyboard shortcut would display a (optional) warning.

Definitely worth the cost. Hours of solid entertainment, way more than those silly arcade games (e.g., Bejeweled). Casual Mac gaming at its finest. I just wish they made a Hearts game too. Two thumbs up!

I have X11 installed, and it doesn't work for me. I wish the developer luck though, this is a much-needed application.
