hey, thought it would be interesting to find out what everyone's favorite and least favorite iapp was (from iLife or iWork)

my WORST has got to be iPhoto, it is so slow, freezes all the time, i know theres some kind of problem with mine in particular as well because half the time it won't show the images and just freezes, i tried reinstalling but nothing. oh well.

aside from iphoto i'd have to say iDVD its rele hard to use and confusing, plus i dun have a superdrive so dvd burning is already a no-go

my FAVORITE iApps are iTunes by far, as well as pages/keynote. they are so easy to use, and i love the way that tables are done in pages.

Favorite has to be iTunes...

Least favored is impossible to say, because there are quite a lot Apple apps I have no use for and thus have no idea if are any good or not... but since I have no need for them, they're not exactly my favorites... ;)

Hmmmm.... Least favorite took me some thinking. Excluding any app that I don't have a use for, but only including the ones that I either use or replaced (like I replaced iChat with Adium), I think I would have to go with:

Favorite: iTunes -- does exactly what I need it to, excessively well. :)

Least: I think I would have to go with Mail.app -- aside from the outstanding search capabilities that Tiger brought it, it's the one place where I consistently feel like other apps (particularly Outlook) do things better. Which, of course, begs the question of why I don't use Entourage 04. To which I don't have a great answer, short of the fact of better Address Book integration in Mail.

iTunes and iPhoto are tops; partly because I've become hooked on iPhoto book creations!

Automator is creeping up there. That might just because of the sense of achievement I get seeing my 'app' in the Applications folder since I can't really code.

Least favourite? Dictionary. I hate that you can't search definitions to find words and that it refers you to other entries but you can't click through on them

Favourite has got to be iTunes. Least favourite is probably one that I haven't used or bothered to look at yet. But so far, even though I love Safari, it's given me some trouble these past few days. Crashes. :(

This is off topic, but even though it's an essential application for me right now, Illustrator is my least favourite app at this time... it keeps beachballing while starting up, or refusing to close, and I've had to force quit it several times now.

I'm sure you know that's not typical of Illustrator. I'd reinstall. Illustrator is a relatively light program... it shouldn't be beachballing at all.


Fave... iTunes/Garageband

Least Fave... iPhoto. by Far.

Favorite: iTunes
Least Favorite: iTunes, because I use it so much. :)

Seriously, I do not think I have a least favorite. Everything works well.
