Dead product. Does not work with current operating system. Was excellent when it did work.

Doesn't work for me either.. Developers need to check this. The idea is great

Simply doesn't work for me. It's enabled, but I get no signs of Google results as depicted in screenshots (e.g., the Yosemite example). Oh well.

Works just fine now that it's been updated, before I was having trouble with some of my other preferences showing I was constantly getting errors telling me that the system could not find them, but now since the update everything is fine.

This happened after I installed this software.

Uninstaling it didn't fix it, and neither does any form of relogging or rebooting:


The program didn't work either when I attempted to use it, before and after editing the preferences.

I like the idea but it don't work for me, it fouled up one of my other preferences, I could not lounch Tap Dex preferences after installing it so i had to remove it.
I really wish it would work it's a good idea, perhaps the next version.

I would like to add something to a previous post, after posting the develuper contacted me saying he thought he knew what was causing the problem I was having and that he would get back to me in a day or so with a fix well he sent me a fix to the problem and it worked like a charm.
This is about the best tech support I have ever gotten, better then some of the apps I paid for, all I can say is excellent ?????

This rocks! I was expecting it to slow Spotlight down, but it doesn't seem to. I wish, though, that I could set it to more than 10 results, and of course it would be better if the results were listed under a heading other than "Bookmarks", such as "Google Results", but I'm sure that's not currently possible.

I am aware of the problem most of you are having and am trying to figure out a solution. I will post an update as soon as I do.

Thank you for your patience.

I got the same problem.
I must admit it's a really good idea but it's just not working on my system.
