It's difficult to find a good, reliable LJ client. Xjournal is perfectible, but it works quite nicely. Rather easy to use and customizable. Last release works nicely with 10.5.6.

need help trying to find the folder where your live journal entries are saved to when you download your history...

anybody know?

i tried the library/application support/xjournal/history file, but nothing is in there.

this would be a great program if it made it obvious where these files are saved...

ack. but other than that it seems great.

Doesn't work with Leopard. Crashes immediately.

Just so you know, this latest update fixes the Leopard crashing issue.

Honestly, I'm gonna say that in terms of OS X, I've not been disappointed with anything more than the selection of LJ clients available. This one is by far the best, but that's not saying much. The bottom line is that it's unstable and crashes for what seems absolutely no reason, it lacks rich editing capabilities (and if it has 'em, I can't find 'em.) It's slow to login, it's awkward to use and most of the options are hidden. I've found managing things with it like you can with the visions client is close to impossible. Really, after about a week with XJournal I just gave up and started updating via the website again. A complete waste of my time and really not worth yours. The web-based update forms are much more user-friendly and versatile than this.

Buggy, unreliable, often awkward to use, plagued by questionable design decisions, and in desperate need of an update.

But it's still the best LJ client for Mac out there.

Really good apps, this certainly beats trying to edit in the Midas style editor on the website.

One things I'd really love to see it support for Fotobuilder/Scrapbook facilities.

Best LJ client for OS X. Glad the 105 release notes were here, because they weren't on the developer's site yet. ;)

I absolutely love the simplicity of and user interface of this app. It works great! I only have two complaints:

1) This is a minor thing, but add a button for the HTML preview for the toolbar. I know its already in one of the menus, but its something I do quite often while writing an entry, so it would help me a lot.

2) Add more font/color formatting support!!!! This is pretty important. I can't seem to change the color of different words/sentences/paragraphs within a post without manually typing in the HTML tags. Changing things in the font window affects everything in the post, not just a section. :-(

Keep up the good work! Oh, and I love the poll builder!

It's a great little app, with everything that I need except that it won't let me view the history of posts I've made in communities and/or edit them.

1.0.3 is still working very well for me. The developer did a good job of getting this out quickly, to address a glitch caused by the Mac OS X 10.3.9 update.
