Capo actually looks very cool, though limited audience.

Fantastical ($19.99) - Calendar application with natural language processing

I have owned Fantastical for a while, and I must admit it's once of the most useful calendar tools I have ever used.

How about typing this: Meeting with John Tomorrow 8pm to 9pm at AppleBees:

However, 40$?


- iRip ($19.95) - Transfer songs from your iPod or iPhone to your Mac
Might worth a look..

But Really? 40$?

And Freeway Pro? Quite a joke.

DJay is now FREE on the iPhone and I'm sure it will become free for Mac shortly as they are releasing newer products...

Capo *is* really cool, and can be extremely useful for musicians of many kinds.

Useless comment, if you don't like it don't buy.

CopyPaste for instance is an oldie and comes in handy many times.

Good question. Fusion drive is too new so I doubt the devs would have been able to get it to work by now. Obviously the OS can handle a lot of hard drive operations, but there are some that the OS cannot.

Exactly. I have bought a bundle or two in my time and find that for the most part they are filled with low to average quality apps that will provide little use to many and are extremely overpriced when listed as an individual app. They bundle about 8 of those with one or two apps that are actually good and hope people will buy for that. Not to mention a lot of apps found in these bundles have free alternatives that work just as well, if not better.

Yes, I agree, good question, I would not trust it unless it is confirmed to work by the makers of TTP.
And, to Me DiskWarrior has always been the better choice.

You bought a Mac and an iPhone, didn't you? Seems strange to be so price sensitive now.

I cringe about people shelling out 2500 bucks for the iPhone (ATT plan included) and having the audacity to complain about 1 or 10 bucks price.

He is price sensitive because he spent a lot of money on Mac and an iPhone.
Because it was tough for his purse, he cannot afford spending more.

It's an open forum, and I can comment on whatever I like.

Beamer is better for desktops as all of the transcoding on-the-fly is done on the computer and not on the ATV. It made my Macbook quite toasty and gave the fans a high impact workout. Still, it seems to be the only workable solution for unsupported codecs.

Capo looks great, but I wonder how accurate it really is in tabbing and capturing chords. $50 doesn't sound a lot for what it is trying to do.

To call these apps useless is pure ignorance. Have you (who state this) actually tried these? I mostly familiar with Fantastical and Capo. Fantastical is brilliant, can't recommend that one enough, if you have a job with many things, meetings etc. to remember. Much better than iCal.
Capo is great for learning songs, by (amongst other functions)slowing the audio down while not changing the pitch. This is of course available in various other powerful audio software programs, but if you don't have any of those programs, Capo is very nice indeed.
