What is the problem - I love this software! I orginally had lots of trouble with the Mac version from the Smith Micro website, but I contacted their support, they were wonderful. They tried to work through the problem with me, when we could not resolve the issues they refunded my money and told me to purchase the software through the app store. The app store version installed smoothly and has never given me any problems. This software has been easy to use, easy to learn and fantastic for setting up human models!

Version 9.0.3
Review by Cleverboy

Excellent Product - I really like playing with Poser to test compositions for my illustrations and to do character development for my writing (both of which I’ve begun working on in earnest). I have not used Poser in many, many years and have been extremely reluctant to get back into it. But, in the Mac App Store at this price, its an absolute no-brainer to recommend to everyone I know. I have some qualms with the user-interface (such as not auto-focusing in a text box that was just opened up, or some aspects of how the libraries are handled), but overall… there is much more good than bad happening all around. This version of Poser, I can easily see being an indispensable element of my creative workflow. Great job!

Version 9.0.3
Review by wayne cook

Avoid This App - I’ve put about 6 hours with poser debut and have found it to be the most frustrating app/program that I have EVER used. I started with the tutorial and quickly realized that the tutorial that comes with the debut version was a poor modification of a tutorial that came with something else. About 30% of the time when the tutorial references a library, the referenced items are not there.

Version 9.0.3
Review by Bleep9999

The cons of this downgraded version - My personal opinion of pros and cons for your reference: Pro: - Nice app that does some really cool stuff (when it works and doesnt become extermely slow or crashes), very nice graphics. - Comes with a pretty decent ammount of startup library and you can morph the characters nicely with the functions included. Cons: - Even I paid twice the actual price in the app store, I have requested for my serial number in case I want to upgrade. No reply received. - Often either gets too slow or crashes, does not retrieve anything. - Bought additional content both from the developer and it’s compatible counterpart, It wouldnt be a problem if at least they would have left an easier way to install it, at least same as base Poser, (figured out later this is still a downgraded version from it), but still doesnt make any sense to cause nightmares trying to install additional content you paid for. I am so frustrated with the infamous runtimes. At startup it went pretty well for a noob like me, but once I tried to do the slightest simple thing aside from the tutorial the nightmare started, figure compatibility, purchased useless content hard to know for a novice that the files for mats, obj, textures, colors and silhouettes) pretty often come independently and the merging of new content has been a true pain in the arse. Huge time.

Review by Benwood

Won’t even boot up. - I havn’t used this software in a while and thought I would like to play with it for a while. On launch I get a dialog box that says it is verifying the software, and then it quits. Going to have to give it 1 star. Very disappointed!
