Yes, I assume the focus will be on NowX too, however that doesn't mean that every NUTD5 user is going to update to it or be forced to because QC and QD don't work in SL. Personally, I'm quite happy with NUTD532. My main reason for updating is not because I really need it, but because I've been a loyal user since the first version and I want to support Nowsoft to help pay for the work that went into NowX. Anyone that has followed these forums, knows how arduous getting NowX done and out was. But... regardless of my reasons, I still think NUTD5 should keep up with at least one more OSX version, in these case Snow Leopard.
All that said... John can we expect a NUTD5 update for SL to fix the menu issues?
And yes to all reading... in ajr135's words, do take the plunge. Support your programmers!
I, too, have been a loyal NUDC user for many, many years, and I have taken the plunge (I paid for Now X two years ago). QuickDay and QuickContact do NOT work (either in Leopard or Snow Leopard), and that IS a deal-breaker for me. Very basic features, such as being able to add a new event or new contact from the QD and QC, do not work. Others on the Now X forums have reported additional basic features that are no longer available in Now X that were available in NUDC. Read, for example, http://forum.nowsoftware.com/content/viewtopic.php?f=99&t=2764
I have gone back to using NUDC so that I can quickly
and easily add events and contacts via QD and QC, can open my calendar and contacts, can open preferences, etc, via these menus. None of these options are available in Now X. The information site for Now X claims:
Donít worry. The features you loved in previous versions of Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5 are still there. We've taken years of know-how and the latest advances in technology to create a product that performs like never before.
This is NOT true!
If there is not a fix for NUDC for Snow Leopard (which I will be upgrading to soon), then I will switch to iCAL. I've waited two long years for Now X, but as I and others have discovered, very basic features from NUDC are no longer available in Now X. Now X hinders productivity rather than enhancing it.
