Excellent - Simple. Does exactly what it says and is free. What more could you want? It looks and feels like it was part of OSX all along. Thanks!

iCrash Browser - This won't stay open even once without crashing. I've tried removing with CleanApp to make sure I'm starting fresh, but same result EVERY SINGLE TIME. I'm going to use CleanApp one more time....

iMedia Browser 2.0.1 - This is an impressive upgrade, expanding the categories and making iPhoto Event browsing easier and faster. THANK YOU for this great app and improvements. I have used the previous versions and been happy, but this upgrade is even better... : ))

Review by bkcash

Almost Useful - I guess this is somewhat useful if you only want to see your photos or videos. What it really needs is the ability to copy a photo, video or other media via drag and drop from the iMedia Browser to the desktop or another photo. If there is a way to do this already, I haven't found it. When I try to drag and drop I get the green cursor pointer with the plus sign in it, but nothing happens.

Version 2.0.1
Review by Linda2009

Still does not search Sub-Folders!! Needed/Required Function!! - Tried this new version, and it still does not search folders within a folder (subfolders). So if you're doing a simple search by a name, it only searches the current [parent] folder and does not search any of the [child] folders. iMedia Browser 1 does search folders within folders. It is very helpful and a REQUIRED function!! I will still NOT upgrade. -------------PREVIOUS POST------------------------------------------------------------------------ I use iMedia all the time! I have really loved it. But, this new version is a real disappointment. You can't search folders anymore!! It will only search the current folder that you are viewing, not subfolders!! This was a BIG plus for me. I used the search all the time. Also, the image count at the bottom, reports the total number of images in the folder, not the total number matching your search. It's like Search is broken! I do like the ability to show thumbnails or list view. but, I can't give up Search for that. I can't find the Update option in the Menu. With iMedia Browser removing the search capability, I am going back to the last version. Sorry Karelia. I don't like it. I was also hoping for the ability to view eps files, but that would be a new feature.

Used to be a good app - This used to be a great app for quickly searching for images. Now it crashes immediately on launch. Hope the developer fixes it to work under Mountain Lion.
