    "Wins on features, but UI is confusing"

    July 4, 2010  |   By jdtangney

    Version: Bookdog 5.3.13

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I don't use BD very much, but when I do, I rediscover why I keep coming back. It is jam-packed with excellent features. I am not much of a fan of cripple-ware, but BD makes it palatable. I needed to buy a license right in the middle of saving a file. Not a problem. The integrated purchase process (google or paypal) Just Workedâ?¢. BD does all kids of tricks with Delicious as well as with native Safari and Google (I haven't tried Google yet). My only complaint is that the user interface is crowded, verbose and complicated. I keep getting the feeling that I don't know what a particular button does. The long-winded explanations on some dialogs just make it worse. Look at the Preferences: What's up with the funky matrix of text and checkboxes? It looks like a tax return. Given the poor usability, it's not great value for money.

    Pros

    Automatic use. Updates when needed.

    No cons as far as I am concerned.

    It works to organize items automatically, and gives you a choice as to what to delete.

    "Best in Class"

    October 21, 2008  |   By MAC_1984

    Version: Bookdog 5.1.36

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Simply the best there is at what it does in the Mac world. The developer is highly responsive and cool to beat. Don't kid yourself with looks as under the hood beats the heart of Viper V10 ready to get bookmarks sorted in no time and keep them that way!

    "six stars"

    June 26, 2008  |   By neimen

    Version: Bookdog 5.1.21

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    i say this every year or so. if you run a web browser on a mac, you really should have bookdog, too.

    the app and the developer are a stellar examples of what mac shareware and developers can be. right up there with graphicconverter, launchbar, and little snitch in my book. that is: not only essential, but constantly improving.

    rock on.

    "Great App, Great Customer Support (even when you..."

    May 5, 2008  |   By Peakdale

    Version: Bookdog 5.1.12

    Summary

    ...don't need it)
    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I've been busily getting on with just letting this app get on with its job over the past year, without even thinking about it. I, like most people, have multiple Macs for work and need them all to be up-to-date and then (for me) a job the requires multiple browsers too, that also need to be synced.

    Bookdog, working in tandem with dot mac, helps me achieve all this - it's a great app.

    This isn't though why I felt the sudden urge, after all this time, to write a review: my mac lap top had to be wiped and in the process of reinstalling everything (don't you hate that bit), I found I'd lost track of my Bookdog serial . . . and low-and-behold (though I later found it) I woke this morning to find an e-mail from the sheepsystems crew with the details I required . . .

    Well done guys!
