Well worth the money - While I could have created the same new subfolder functionality for automator manually using applescript or a shell script, this producted saved me way more time than it cost in $. The function I needed worked perfectly and the support I got from the company both before and after the sale was fantastic. Definitely a good purchase.

Broken - OS X reports the file downloaded as damaged. Doesn't run at all. Deleting and re-downloading does not help.
