"May be good for some, consistent crash for me"

February 19, 2006  |  By Joe Wheeler

 |  Version: CoMa X 7.3.1


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
...after installation, I began to attempt to set up the program in demo mode. It crashed. I rebooted the program, again it crashed. Sometimes it would take a menu access first, but always it would crash; crash log would start:

Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)
Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS (0x0001) at 0x72656464

I don't know what this means. I do know the software is unusable for me.

Other issues: English manual and online help are written by a German speaking person whose translation skills leave much to be desired; to get both fax and ans. machine capability going, cost rises from $49 to $99, and to $149 if one wants to also provide faxback/fax retrieval function.

I had all of the above features in OS 9 with Smith Micro's HotFax Messenger Pro (with the included FaxSTF 5 upgraded [free] to 6.0) which for the most part worked quite well. That software cost me $69 5 years ago.

If it could be made to work, it has many desirable features (hence the 5 stars under features, and supports Class 2.0 fax protocol. Bottom line is, for what one gets it is too expensive, as well as, at least on some machines, buggy.

This is doubly too bad, as this is the only software for OS X that makes use of voice-capable modems for a virtual answering machine.

"Ignore the idiots here, this software fills a need"

Wow, what a bunch of idiots. What do you people do, search VT for apps you have no use for and then give them bad reviews?

First of all, CoMa is more than just a fax app, it also is an answering machine. The price is pretty fair, though I prefer the more expensive Phone Valet for my needs. Still CoMa fills the need for one of my offices where I inevitably get people who try to send a fax to my voice line.

Also in regards to DSL, WiFi, etc...

You can't send or receive a fax using these, meaning you can connect straight from a DSL connection to a fax machine. Net services like Send2Fax are email to fax gateways.

Net faxing services of course can seem silly as compared to simply emailing the document directly to the recipient.

However, there are many instances where a person doesn't have a scanner, can't receive attachments, or whatever. In these cases, as well as being able to receive faxes sent to your voice line, software like this comes in handy...and avoids the spam and costs associated with net faxing services.

"Again a bunch of incompatible fragments"

July 07, 2004  |  By kaida

 |  Version: CoMa X 6.9

I really don't know what this PoS ist supposed to be.
From the early days of Atari on I never got CoMa to work at all, not to mention in a reasonable way.
And it still looks like some homemade patchwork ... a horrible GUI.


And even charging money for that? Ridiculous!
