That's what the profile say. But another three months and no response. Guess it's Abandonware.

do people realize that at least two of MondoMouse's functions have been present in the OS for years? you can move and resize background windows without bringing them to the foreground by Command-dragging their title bars and resize corners, respectively - no additional software required. so you need to use the title bar or the resize corner - so what?

you can ignore my star rating because i've never used MondoMouse - because i've never needed it!

If only we had more reviewers like you, with the courage to say what they think about, and rate, a product which they’ve never tried. More, please!

You make a good point, but since you haven't used Mondomouse, it should be in the form of a comment instead of a review.

I personally wouldn't bother with software that's been in beta for over four years. The developer obviously doesn't care about this software and is unlikely to fix it once a new OS X version finally breaks it.

Appalling customer service. A month with no reply whatsoever, despite several reminders. Avoid them like the plague.


N.B. I would have left the Rating Stars 'Features', 'Ease of Use', and 'Stability' blank since without a license I cannot use the software I paid for. However, macupdate requires all to be rated before it'll submit.

Macupdate emailed them on 22nd November on my behalf. They ignored it.

I've used their websites 'Contact Us' form for the second time just to send a duplicate.

I've tried to contact the developers three times (twice with email, once with their websites contact form) asking if I can get a replacement licence file. It's been two weeks and they have yet to reply. Anyone suggestions welcomed. Thanks.

This is a great addition to the Mac OS GUI. Haven't had any problems with latest version.

I'm happy with these recent betas. After Snow Leopard was released, I experienced hangs and crashes of MondoMouse Tool occasionally. I find MondoMouse utterly indispensible, so I was just re-enabling it in System Prefs when this happened. The recent betas fix all my problems, however.

I haven't tried this beta long enough to be able to comment on it, but I do have one general comment. Since the release of Snow Leopard, both this app. and SmartScroll have been buggy and their developers haven't yet succeeded in making them stable and reliable. I suspect that in both cases the reason for this is the same: the developers don't fully understand changes introduced by Apple in the interest of pushing touch technology in general and the Magic Mouse in particular, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the reason for this is that Apple has not fully documented its changes for the benefit of third-party developers. So I'm resisting any temptation to think bad thoughts about the developers of MM and SS. My hunch is that they aren't lazy and indifferent, but rather that Apple has put them in a bad place. These have both been great little utilities in the past, and I hope they will be again in the future (it might be helpful if these two developers would talk together and pool what they have learned so far).

You make a very fair point, and I don't think that the developer of MondoMouse should be faulted for having difficulty, only for being so incommunicative. The dev of Smart Scroll, on the other hand, has been putting out regular updates since Snow Leopard came out, and, in my experience, is very responsive to customer emails. Even if he hasn't worked out all the glitches yet, at least his customers can see that he's trying. I submitted a bug report to MondoMouse's developer shortly after 1.4.4b1 came out. I never received a response, and now, almost 6 months later, an update comes out with the same issue apparently not fixed. If his difficulties with MondoMouse were such that he couldn't put out any updates for a long stretch, the least this developer could have done was post some information on his web site letting people know what was going on. He could also acknowledge bug reports, so those of us who do submit them know that he's aware of our issues. The fact is, when you pay money for software you have a right to a functional product or, at the very least, a good reason why the product isn't functional. I'm sorry, but a 6 month stretch with a basically unusable version of MondoMouse and not so much as a peep from the dev on what's going on is simply unacceptable.

Hmmm, is it just my machine where beta 2 doesn't actually do anything it's supposed to, but instead starts TextEdit whenever it's activated and won't let it close, to the point where the only way to restart the machine is to deactivate MondoMouse so that TextEdit won't stop the machine from restarting? Weird............

It is a rather weird glitch, and one I was experiencing in 1.4.4b1. I reported it directly to the developer, but it obviously hasn't been corrected. I hope for the sake of people still using MondoMouse that the space between b2 and the next update isn't as long as it was between b1 and b2 (close to 6 months). MondoMouse is a great utility, and I understand that its bugs in Snow Leopard have been difficult to deal with, but I think the dev needs to be more communicative so his customers at least know what's going on. His long silence and the long lack of an update to MondoMouse to get it working properly on Snow Leopard caused me to abandon it in favour of Zooom. I'm not trying to trash the dev here, just offering a constructive suggestion.

I am using it on Mac OS 10.5, so I don't have any mentioned problems. Generally I like MondoMouse, but it lacks one very important things.

Since this app is for moving/resizing windows, it MUST have a feature to reset the window position and size to predefined or saved settings.

I record screencasts, and sometimes I have to re-record a part of a screencast, that was recorded some time ago. I need to place one or more windows to exactly the same position.

MondoMouse should be able AT LEAST to snap windows to the center and screen edges. Ideally it should be able to save and restore position of any window.
