    It sure does. In fact, it's been mentioned before by Gomi in this thread. Also, we're up to 2.5GB already, more or less.

    Sweet! My Gmail account has been ignored for my main .Mac e-mail account, so this is really good news. Thanks for sharing! :D

    all we need now is for someone handy with applescript or automator to have us do backup/sync of important folders in the background.

    Is it me, or does the application crash a lot? It crashed twice when I tried uploading a couple of small documents.

    Same here, crashed twice too. Was able to upload 2 small files but after uploading it suddenly quits. Will check later on my Pbook if I encounter the same thing.
    App looks promising though. :)
    Nice find Piedad. Thanks for sharing.

    This thing was in fact first available on the PC when I read it from Adel's column in Manual before. I like its nifty AI. When I created a pictures folder, it displayed an icon of a camera just beside the folder :winkgrin:

    Gosh. it's crashing on my Mac (PB 12, 1Ghz, 10.4.2) as well. I can't even get beyond the log-in stage. Could have someting to do with our proxy server, though. I'll try it later when I get back home...
