"Nasty Programmers"

October 29, 2005  |  By jlaflamme2002

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I tried BurnoutMenu for the trail. Was not impressed w/ the program and preferred Stickies from Mac ( its main competition). When I uninstalled it, it left a BUG in my Mac that CREATES A NEW STICKY NOTE EVERY TIME I LOG IN. I guess as punishment for not purchasing their product.
DO NOT INSTALL!!!

"Avoid for the moment"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Both 2.0 and 2.5 unexpedly quit on start up. Developer's support email returns undelivered.

The interface is really good so it's a pity this app seems to have "gone down" but we watch this space in hope that someone at clichesw will yawn and stir . . .

"Well..."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I periodically do a search for to-do list managers and recently bought BurnoutMenu because of its integration with iCal, which I use in conjunction with my Palm.

Good: It has an icon on the main toolbar, so I can call up the list with a minimum of fuss. This works well. From that toolbar, I can invoke the "manager" screen, the preferences, and several other tools. In manager, I can see/edit entries which are listed by categories (that I can define in addition to the calendar/categories from iCal). Price of around $6 is quite reasonable. Oh, I've checked the virtual memory usage and do not have the problems others have reported.

Poor: The to-do list when invoked from the toolbar is not as compact as I'd like. When I create a new filter to view some of the categories, I cannot edit it once it's defined. If I do, when I press the OK button, nothing happens. I have to cancel in order to close the window. The only way I can change the filter is to delete it and redefine it. Finally, iCal integration is very poor. When I first set up the app, it got the iCal entries. However, if I add/edit entries in iCal or add entries in BurnoutMenu (those connected to iCal categories), there is no integration. Changes to iCal do not appear in BurnoutMenu and visa versa - even after 24 hours. Also, BurnoutMenu does not support hierarchical to-dos, other than having top layer categories and entries within each.

Bottom line - it's got good features, but some don't work well, if at all. I'm on the verge of going back to my former to-do app, which doesn't integrate with iCal, but otherwise does a better job.

"Crap software"

Burns up CPU cycles, hogs virtual memory. Only intermittently reads iCal. And smartass developer . . . WHEN he is decides to respond. And I paid for this. So, it's a pretty app that doesn't do what it's supposed to.

"Best menubar to-do list"

June 06, 2005  |  By smolka

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Works well and flawlessly. I do not use iCal myself, so I don't know about integration with iCal (I still prefer Personal Organizer despiote a lack of updates).
I did notice additional functionality over against, say, 18 months ago. It is very easy to use, the due date is an extremely welcome addition, the folders a are helpful.
I would like an icon or sign for things "in progress", as PO allows, but for the time being I have selected a colour to reflect this state.
I checked Virtual Memory and found no problem with it.

"Flawlessly here..."

May 10, 2005  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: BurnoutMenu 2.5pr1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a great little app without a real competitor around. I believe I tried all to-do list managers for OSX. All of them are standalone apps without the menubar acessible interface. Most of them do not integrate with iCal and tend to be have too many details.

"Crashed before I even had a chance to try it !"

December 11, 2004  |  By croettger_dotmac

 |  Version: BurnoutMenu 2.0.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Just downloaded the latest version 2.0.3. When I start it, the applet's symbol appears for a fraction of a second in the menu bar, then the applet crashes, offering to send the usual report to Apple. I use a three month old 15" PowerBook with 1.5 GHz running OS X 10.3.6.


I had a look at the release notes and found plenty of bug fix descriptions that seem to indicate that the developers do not have a clue as to how to design, develop and test software. That means with every bug fix there is a very high probability of adding more bugs.


Developers: get some professional advice on how to develop software.


The marketing people are doing a good job, but without a decent product ... ?


The product idea is great and it really deserves a neat applet !


Are there any competitors that offer reliable software? I did find none so far and would appreciate a recommendation.

"28 Days Later..."

December 01, 2004  |  By Karsen24

 |  Version: BurnoutMenu 2.0.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I downloaded this program and gave it the full 28 day trial before deciding whether or not to purchase. The verdict? I bought. The integration with iCal is smooth and fast. The UI is clean and intuitive. And the developer listened to my input and added a feature I requested. What more can you ask, except maybe a lower price. $15 is a little steep but I found I was using this app daily. If you use iCal I think you'll find this application a very useful addition.
