To an extent, but there is still a lot of leftover spam, some of which I know I rated negatively, so it may be automated and is just dependent on getting so many negative votes.

A decade from now I'll still be using the program without a thought of moving to something else.  I don't care if the online database goes offline.  I don't mind creating profiles from scratch.

I can live with that, but ... I'd be more concerned if the iPad version stops working. I depend heavily on that for selecting movies to watch, and marking them watched.


could you not just remote into the main app from your iPad - lots of paid or free services allow this, not as intuitive as a native app, but since the ios app is broken anyway....

Yeah, I do remote into my PC using Splashtop sometimes. The drawback is that the Desktop Profiler isn't as convenient as the iOS app when it comes to selecting movies to watch. And remoting in without a real keyboard makes it even less convenient.

If I had to forego the iOS app I would rather run a remote Profiler on my laptop. A bit clumsier than the iPad, but still OK.

And btw, I don't consider the iOS app broken when run on the iPad. There are a few minor bugs, but nothing that bugs (!) me.

Yeah, it works fine, and it's free as long as you run client and server in the same local network.

Edit: I just checked the Splashtop site, and it seems that there is now "a nominal charge" for the iPad and iPhone apps. It was free when I got it.

I'm grandfathered on the add-ons so they're free for me too but I use Splashtop pretty much daily to remote into my different PC's at home and out. The iPad app has gotten a lot better over the past few months. It's free for use for up to 5 PC's on one email account.

If your host PC is low powered or some apps don't render well in it, install the Mirror driver on the Advanced tab. It can help a wee bit.

You mean you haven't already started? 

Now would be a good time to make a plan, so you are not caught unprepared.


Has anyone found a suitable alternative yet?

Depends on your requirements.

For me the program will do until such day that Microsoft doesn't support 32bit programs anymore.

Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy the program almost as much as I did when I first bought it back in 2003 (if my memory is right). One big problem I have is that digital purchases aren't integrated properly into the software. Sure, I have added categories and even logos for iTunes but it still bugs me that I have to add and download a blu-ray profile and personalize it later in order to have it in my collection. Also, and this might be the biggest problem, I feel like the active community in gets smaller by the day. Many new dvds/blu rays aren't added to the database at all. Given that I collect many tv shows on iTunes, I cannot even add them to the database since those are not allowed for submission - and many of those tv shows thus never get fed to the common database. I thus have to work in private on all new profiles instead of making it a group effort like it once was. I'm most certainly not the only one seeing this as a problem.

I feel like we need a few alterations to this software in order for it to be viable in the future. It would be nice to have an IMDB integration as well to download cast and crew.
