I ran into chandler and like the ideas implemented.
When I started using chandler I discovered some issues I like to
bring to your attention.
Chandler doesn't follow my mac's date view. Over here in Europe we
have the date view dd-mm-yy not mm/dd/yy
This is a important point if you like chandler being adopted also by
European user this should fixed. Chandler should flow the OS X date
preferences from system preferences. Many apps do why doesn't Chandler?
To my big surprise and big disappointment chandlers e-mail function
doesn't suport autofill from my OS X address book. This is a huge
caviate. I hope this is already on your roadmap with a high priority.
Really this just should work like in mail.app from OS X.
It's strange that a lot of things that usually goes in the pref panel
is arranges in different locations in drop-down menus and other
panels. (like the e-mail configuration) If you like to get a lot of
Mac users adopting chandler you really should follow this. Mac user
really like that applications behave like in a unified way and that
preferences of a app are grouped in the pref pannel Have a look at
mail.app Safari and the like.
Certificates. having a own certificate store really makes no sense at
all when working on OS X. Mac has it's own certificate store in
keychain. Having a other application with it's own certificate store
is a pain in the ass. FireFox does and really it's dreadful and ever
mac user using certificates dislikes this on FireFox. Please don't
take the same road in the end Mac users will despise your
application. Just invest time and effort to get things right using
keychain it will be a burden less for your app developers and for the
Mac users of chandler.
Having tested your application for about two hours and finding the
above described drawbacks. I come to the conclusion chandler has
still some major issues that developers should take care of before
chandler comes to maturity.
I hope my comment will be helpful in developing chandler. I will keep
track of future developments. And hope this promising app will come
to maturety soon.
