I have used this for a while and in the past, it was reliable. Recently (since 10.9) it just does not work at all. Nothing launches reliably.

Very good software and very simple to use.
I use it to launch a specific url to update data on my remote server.

$30 bucks for something osx already does for free? I guess if you want the convenience of a no brainer gui, you might pay for something like this.

launchd has replaced cron on OS X.
Lingon is a graphical user interface for creating an editing launchd configuration files for Mac OS X Leopard 10.5 and it's free.

I tried Lingon a few months ago, but found that the mean time between Lingon crashes on Mac OS 10.5 was about ten minutes. Also, Lingon would not "load" the command (using launchcntl, if I recall correctly), so your changes would not take effect until you logged out/in. So, if I needed a scheduling utility I'd give this Cronette a try.

Terrible name choice, though, for something which is not supposed to use cron and I presume uses launchd. Should have called it Launchette.



I use Lingon all the time under 10.5 and it never crashed on me.


Never had these problems with Lingon.
