Cool. Have reviews been a regular feature in the past that I've somehow missed, or are they new? And do you want user reviews (not that I have anything to review now, but...)?

We've done a few official reviews over the years, it's not something we want to do all the time, but every now and then it's fun.

We greatly encourage user reviews, hence this section of the Forums. [Smile]

We already saw MTB Babe's backside. How many other user rearviews do you need?

Oh, misread that. My bad. [Wink]

I have been checking out one of their other apps Mail Factory. It aims to fill one of the gaping holes in the Mac OS Address Book, which is that you can only print labels/envelopes as either Name, Address or Company Name, Address, as opposed to something like Name, Job Title/Department, Company Name, Address. In case some others of you face this problem, this is my conclusion after looking at 4 apps.

Mail Factory produces the best looking, and most legible output, but it is extremely slow, slightly buggy, and $40. Its nearest rival Imprint is half that price, and is much simpler to use, fast and relatively bug free, but the labels it produces are sometimes in an excessively small point size, and less customisable. Chronos also have SOHO Labels and Envelopes at $30. This one has the most complex and baffling interface of all the apps. I may have missed something but I just could not get it to work. Blank fields in an address entry produced blank lines on the output, and I could not get the labels to resize automatically so the last line of an address was often lost off the bottom of a label. There is also a freeware app Pearlabelizer, but I could not make that work either.

I also use Mail factory. Although it was slightly buggy, the developers were very responsive to my e-mail questions. (I was using the previous version and have not yet tried the newest version.) The Tiger version of address book seems to print labels better than the Panther version, but you still can't add clip art and such.
