    huh?

    Anyone else think this looks like a complete rip off of Sticky Brain 4?

    I was thinking it was too much like Zoomracks from the mid-1980s on the Atari ST.

    Whatever it's a rip-off of, it certainly looks like a UI trainwreck.

    My favorite part, though, is this bit of copy from their site:

    Uhm. This is a 1.0 release. There are, like, four users of this program, so what exactly are you telling us about your product?

    OK, yes, it is derivative, but I've been using it for a while (ok, ok, an hour or so, not weeks), and it isn't so bad. Will I keep using it? Dunno. But it's free for a month and is a full version, so I'll try it out. The name and the icon are goofy, but I've been a fan of BBEdit - another of their products - for some time, and the few times I've called them up they've been very friendly, so I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt on this.

    Besides, I've long lamented the lack of a martial-arts-guy-in-a-red-circle icon for my Dock, so now I'm happy. ;)

    Any of their apps that have more than a perfunctory UI do.
