Ars Technica on Aperture 1.0 – this is the review I’ve been looking for. If you’re interested in Aperture, read this review.
update: After reading the review completely myself, I’m left thinking that maybe Aperture isn’t what I need, and maybe it is something I’ll want, evenutally. I don’t know, and haven’t made up my mind…
The Ars conclusion:
Maybe by 2.0 Apple will have the foundation sorted out. At this stage Aperture is a big, expensive misfire and considering the hefty price tag, I can’t think of a reason to recommend it. Reading this review, you may think I sound jaded, but I am genuinely angry for those who shelled out US$500 for a program that promised professional results and failed to deliver. Thanks for coming out Aperture, now get off the stage.
