How about adding a field so one can see immediately what kind of License the app is distributed under?

Screen Savers...
Posted by: Anonymous on Feb 23, 2001 06:46PM
How about including things that should be here that are not?

For example: epicware ScreenSavers Pack 2.0.

Epic is a respected name in the Mac OS X community and should have their products included in your listings.

Why did so many people vote for themes?

Those are so useless for a web site. This

site's look is fine, no need to mess with it.

Why are themes so important to people?

I think the links should open up seperate

windows. That way macosxapps.com

could stay anchored.

How about non-X-compatible apps?
Posted by: Anonymous on Mar 21, 2001 04:35AM
Although this database of X-compatible

apps is very useful, what I'm really looking

for is a database of all common Mac

apps and their level of X compatibility. For

example if I wanted to know when MS

Word was coming out for X, there would

be something related to their promised

October release, that it would cost money,

and possible alternatives that are already


This kind of stuff would be very useful in

planning for X; a user could enter their

commonly-used applications (or

hardware requiring drivers) and get a

sense as to when moving to X makes

Useful apps

How about a separate group of categories that would organize items from the set of categories you have differently. Here's two examples:

A category of tools that replace functionality "lost" going from OS 9 to OS X.

A category for OS X front-ends for well-known Unix tools.

one thing that i've noticed is conspicuously missing from your lists AND descriptions is the licensing. i for one would like to know before i get 3 or 4 pages deep whether the ap i'm downloading is freeware, beta, shareware or whatever. i think that would be a nice addition to your site.
