" I found Appearance OSAX to be nearly perfect at what it does. It's easy to learn and use, and I think the widgets it provides are adequate for the automation and integration tasks that AppleScript was originally intended for."
"I have been writing Applescript applications for years using AppleScript Studio to do much of what 24U Appearance OSAX does, but with great difficulty. I wish I had known about 24U Appearance OSAX long ago. It would have saved my a great deal of work."

"Been on the edge of my seat waiting for this day to arrive. So glad to see your product updated.
I have dozens of production scripts, tens of thousands of lines of code, that are holding us back
from migrating to Lion because of progress bars, dialogs and alerts that are broken but now
that will be a thing of the past."
