Safari would be a lot more popular if Apple would make the same features available in all Mac OS X versions. I can download the same version of Chrome or Firefox for Mac OS 10.6 - 10.9. Yet I need to update my whole OS to use Safari 7. Doesn't make much sense to me, particularly when there are no features that are so crazy that they could not be made to run in 10.6.

This is the best name I've ever seen for an app. You win.

This is a great alternative to Apple Mail.
The one thing that annoys me is that it keeps popping up a bar at the top of the window asking my to sign in to facebook and twitter and linkedin. I don't want to use any of those services with this app, yet it keeps asking me to do so.
Is there a way to turn that off? I looked in the preferences and it doesn't look like there is.

It has asked me 4 times now for different ones. How many more times is it going to ask me? I wish there was just a preference to turn this feature off.

Does the app interface really look like that? I take it this is a port from Windows?

Raised the price to $30 now, huh?
Good luck with that.

So, let me get this straight... the Mac app costs $60, the iPhone version another $5, and the iPad version another $20!
That is nuts. MoneyDance is $50 and the iPhone/iPad app is free. I could see charging $5 or even $10 for a universal mobile app, but to charge for each one is ridiculous.

So, basically what is being stated here is that if you have the iPad app you can't sync with the iPhone app unless you:
a) connect through wifi to a computer running the desktop version
b) sign up for their $40 direct access thing.
That makes the extra money charged for the iPhone and iPad apps even less appealing than I originally thought. For a money app that is trying to help you with your budget, that seems kind of ridiculous.
Really, what would be the point of having just the iPad app and not being able to transfer the data from that app to any other software/platform?

I've been using Painter since it was Fractal Painter, watching it change hands multiple times until Corel got hold of it. Since Corel bought it they've increased the price (especially for upgrades) considerably. However, right now I noticed they have a discount going on their website for both the full and upgrade versions. Perhaps it's just for the holiday season? In addition, if you search RetailMeNot for Corel you can find a discount code for another 10% off. This is a good deal for either the full version or an upgrade.

So, I bought Painter X3 with all the discounts. The program has become very complex over the years - and the interface along with it. For real artists (who will most likely be the ones using this software) the presets are not all that great. You have to tweak them to get them to where they are usable for your style of painting. Therein lies both the power of Painter and unfortunately the complexity.
It takes a long time to get the hang of what all the options do in the brush palette. That's why I gave ease of use only 1 star. The feature set is outstanding and no other painting program comes close. However, I have had a couple crashes with X3 so far. One was just entering the serial number. Not a good start to using new software.
The icons in the toolbars and palettes look terrible. They are heavy and cartoonish. The interface REALLY needs to be simplified and redesigned. It is not intuitive or nice to look at no matter what operating system you are using.
Overall, if you're an artist you can't really pass up this software at the current price on Corel's site. Plus, it is a bit faster than previous versions. I hope Corel takes the interface more seriously in future versions, though.

Why is this $293.50?

I wish Adobe would explain why they are keeping Flash alive and trashing great apps like Fireworks.

"Enter the new process of 'live' design with XPressive."
Well, no… CSSEdit did this exceptionally years ago. Espresso does it ok, but not as good of an editor as CSSEdit was.
Xpressive may be that CSSEdit replacement? Will have to download the trial and see.

The server is so slow. I tried to download it using 3 different browsers. It gets to about 200k if I'm lucky and then stops. Is there another site to download it from?

Has anyone had problems using their Apple remote with Boxee? My remote won't do anything in it.

Since updating to 7.0.2 iTunes will no longer get album artwork for songs. I've repaired permissions, still no luck.
