And I just wanted to see if the Print Magic is something to write home about... But seriously when seeing this Web site I get worried.... That "design" won't sell a lot of products. Top "news" on the site dates back to 2002 and 2003.
I think Steve Becker and MacEase are an interesting example of how the pendulum can shift the other way; if apps like Disco and AppZapper are examples of "Style over Substance", then PrintMagic and MacMagic are obviously "Substance over Style". I'm sure they're good apps, but I think it's hard to argue that the UI of those apps, is, well, really, pretty ugly. MacMagic has an incredible amount of depth to it; the problem is that it's packaged in a UI which completely overwhelms the user with options and is very much user-hostile. It and the other apps like Print Magic almost seems to give off the vibe that having a nice visually appealing UI is beneath them.
A happy medium *is* possible - you can have a good nice UI while at the same time having a functionally powerful app; I can think of Yojimbo, OmniFocus/OmniWeb, and Things as examples. Just because you have a good app doesn't mean you have don't have to hire a designer or two to help make it presentable. It's sad that somehow people have come to associate the importance of a good, nice UI as being "fluff".
