This is an unsolicited review/comment on the general use of Wifind. It's annoying when people can't or won't take the time to contact the developer for resolutions but rather go off half-cocked and post a slag against the developer.

1. The submenu change in Leopard is due to Apple and out of the hands of the developer. Bitch at Apple if you don't like it. Apple has made menu items a moving target for developers.

2. About their reliability. I have nothing but good experiences. Bought the product over a year ago. Worked fine. Recently came across the app again and decided to install for Leopard. Needed to get my reg code again, emailed and it showed up within an hour.

It's also my understanding that RealLife® took the developer off the map briefly - it happens. Doesn't mean that they're a rip-off operation.

Overall, it's a handy application to have for mobile road-warriors. It's simple and elegant and does the task it was written for very well. I didn't want to have to run another app all the time to see the infos I get with Wifind. I've got iStumbler, Kismac..etc. They all have their uses, but Wifind is just there when you need a quick glance.

The Cow gives it a thumbs up!

Seems broken on my MacBook since the last OS update. Now only get Question marks '?' instead of info. Reinstalled but still the same. Virtually useless now. Anyone else have this trouble?

Hello Akrobat !

This is Tim over at TastyApps....

Leopard threw us a curve ball with this latest OS update and we had to fix/patch WiFind - so it *should* work great now on the latest release of Leopard.

If you are still having issues, head on over to our site and let us know. We'll totally take care of you !

-Tim

iStumbler will do all this as well, and is free. But iStumbler could take a hint as this app's menubar intergration is very handy.

After getting the new licensing system in order, I have had great success with WiFind and VideoBox from Tasty Apps. Both programs are simple to use, the instructions are simple and the products work great. I especially like the way they both integrate into OSX 10.5.2 and do not interfere with permissions or any other aspect of my system. I use these products on a 2.16G MacBookPro Intel Core 2 Duo machine.
Thank you, Tasty Apps,
Mark Fenning

After a licensing problem of my own doing I contacted Tim. Although I didn't get a response for some time, as soon as he was able, he conscientiously followed up with me and resolved my problem immediately. I get less service from suppliers to whom I pay significant sums of money. Thank goodness for independent developers!

WiFind was the first app I put on my macbook when I got it and I've really missed not having it since Leopard.

I'm very glad to have it back for general use, but mostly because I can now see what my best option is at work where there are several networks available to me.

It's not as slick as it was in Tiger but does what it needs to. No regrets about paying the few dollars it costs.

The developers have always been most helpful and specific when dealing with my questions. Thanks guys!

Wi-Find, while not an essential application under Leopard, is still a very useful addition to the system software.

Thanks to Tim Breslin for his personal attention to recent update issues and I look forward to seeing this project grow.

After some time with no answer from the developers, I just recieved a new working serial (because the licensing system changed with 1.4) and it works now perfectly in OS X 10.5.1

I hope that a future version will have the same great integration as in 10.4, but maybe it will never work like that in Leopard.

Anyway, thanks to the developer again for the upgrades and the work they put into their programs!

Excellent app - can't see why Apple didn't provide this functionality.

Worked great in Tiger - okay in Leopard (not quite as neat but still functions well). Not free - but so cheap that it might as well be.

Good support - mostly next day reply to emails (and that includes the time difference).

Highly recommended.
