Less than perfect apps

Macworld Podcast #284

Just because an app holds a special place in your heart, that doesn't mean it couldn't stand a few improvements. In this Macworld Live session, I'm joined by a panel of luminaries to discuss our favorite apps and their flaws and how we would fix them. We also tackle why it's hard for even the best apps to achieve perfection.

The panel includes Daring Fireball's John Gruber, Black Pixel's Dave Wiskus, Aged and Distilled's Guy English, Macworld senior contributor Glenn Fleishman (also of Tidbits fame), and Paul Kafasis of Rogue Amoeba.
