The app works pretty good, but it constantly gives me an error saying "Error (-1009) The Internet connection appears to be offline." which is never the case. It seems to work fine even with that error message up, but its really annoying!

Does the job. Can see friends status, check and send messages. See acheivements. Nice little app for a nice price ;) Have not had any issues with stability on 10.6.x or 10.7.

Good app, but it just crashes like nothing I've come across, like at least once every hour or so, same on PPC G5 running 10.5 and now on a Intel Mac mini running 10.6.4.

This app is easy to use. You just have to enter your email and password and it displays your friends list.
The problem with this app is that after a few moments, the friends list disappear and you have to re-launch Friendz to get it again.

Cool app-- it's a perfect addition to my dock. The interface looks like iChat and Mail had a baby... wish it were a little slicker, but it gets the job done! thx

This program hasn't given me a problem yet! It's a great thing to have since I'm way to lazy to set up ICS in home so I can actually log on to xbox live. Thanks for the app!

I use this app almost every day, checking to see which friends of mine are on. Nice job with the Growl support--it looks great. The only suggestions I have are:

-Make a dropdown list of themes (in preferences, duh) for the Growl notifications and the entire app (if possible). That would attract more users, being able to customize their environment to certain sizes, etc. Check out Adium X as well, and look at the options for the buddy list. The option that I use makes it very small and unobtrusive. Just some food for thought.

-Add a lot to the Get Info pane (i.e. last time online, last message they sent to you, and other things that you can't really do on xbox.com). Then people would feel more of a "need" for your app, which would attract even more users!
