Jumper has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
Jumper is a cool utility designed to quickly launch applications, open documents, or access folders. When there is not enough space in the Apple Dock, you can use Jumper to store an endless number of items! It can be used in conjunction with the Apple Dock or as its replacement. When Jumper is installed, a discreet icon sits in the corner of your screen, and you can click to activate it. A palette slides onto the screen, to which you can add your favorite applications (with a simple drag and drop), or of course, click them to launch them. The Jumper palette shows multiples applications at a time; however, you can search for more...

It is not present in the WayBackMachine if anyone is searching for it.

As a heads up to anyone using this, once opened the dock icon does not have a little white ball below it, nor can one quit it via its dock icon, or even with force quit (it doesn't show up there); rather one must use Activity monitor to kill the process (or terminal, of course).

Also the icon that pops up when the app is activated is little blue ball on in the LLH corner of one's window; this must be clicked for the little pop-up display.

You can still download the last version at Softpedia—as a last resort of course—MacUpdate rules!

My comment is addressed to Mac Update.

I noticed this application in my dock, but forgot where or why I had it, but I do know that -- without fail -- I don't download apps from the MAS store (or just about anywhere else for that matter) without first checking them out at MU, if possible. So I did a search within MU and this page did not come up, which left me scratching my head. Only from a google search did I come upon this MU page. Even if an application is discontinued, it should show up in a MU search.

Overall, we prefer to keep the discontinued apps out of the search results. Since we have more than 40,000 listings on our site, we've accumulated quite a few discontinued apps in our db over the years, and we don't want them to crowd the results sets for users who are looking for new apps to try out. However, we definitely appreciate this feedback, and I'll make sure that our developers take this into consideration in the future!

I appreciate your reply, and understand MU's reasoning; however, it makes it a bit more difficult to find the MU page for a now-defunct, but potentially useful app.

A suggestion would be to have the regular search and then a "comprehensive" search that would include all apps. Maybe just some additional special character -- an asterisk or whatever in the search window would get one the latter search.

The best application organizer and launcher I have found. I have separate menus or panels for Words (writing), Photography, Internet, Audio, etc. I would be lost without it.

This app seems to have disappeared from the App Store and I found no info on the developers website. What happened?

I emailed the developer and unfortunately it has indeed been discontinued.

My problem with this developer is that they provide no means of downloading prior versions of their software. There are still many of us out there running Mac OS 10.5.8 on Power PC machines, mine being a G5 quad that I paid a few grand for. Their response to my inquiry was to go buy a new machine. Apparently, they have no concept of the current economic conditions in this country.

I purchased a license from the app store back in August. I haven't used it much since purchasing it but just noticed Jumper now fails to launch (under Lion). I went to see if there is an update. Well the app store no longer has the application available and does not list it under my purchased apps even though I have a receipt. The developer has changed names (from App4Mac to ADNX). Their new web site does not even list Jumper as one of their apps. WTF? OK I only paid $1.99 for it but still, this is pretty bad...

Update: Jumper is back on the app store and is free until Dec 31st.

Funny, after installing this new version (which is working under Lion btw) my original purchase from August now shows up again under my app store purchases. I have some concerns over how and why an app I purchased disappeared in the first place though. Does not give me very much confidence in the app store.

A big middle finger to the MacCrapStore and apps that don't offer demos.
If I can't test out an app, then I'm definitely not interested in purchasing it.

I think MacUpdate needs to add two new categories to its filter list:
1. Apps with no demo.
2. Apps with no demo for under a buck.

Then we could just turn this nonsense off and focus on what we genuinely seek.

Apple will refund you if you do not like an app

So, this appears to be the procedure:

http://www.40tech.com/2011/01/31/how-to-get-a-refund-from-the-ios-or-mac-app-stores/

When you report a problem via the iTunes store, the options they give you are as follows:
1. I didn't receive this item
2. I inadvertently purchased this item
3. This item does not function as expected
4. I already own this item
5. This item was labeled incorrectly
6. My concern isn't listed here (with box to explain)

Odd, but nowhere do I see the option of "I was not happy with the application." As if that explanation is going to fly in the first place. So, I either lie or hope Apple will accept my rationale of unhappiness.

And since all of the articles I found that describe this "simple" process caution us not to abuse this process - and I'm unclear as to how many requests constitute an "abuse" - it's conceivable that I cannot really "demo" very many of these pay-up-front products before Apple won't let me do so anymore and will stop issuing refunds.

And then, if I do get lucky, I get to wait at least a week before Apple even decides, and then I get to wait even longer before a refund shows up in my bank account. In the meantime, as I await the coveted "unhappiness refund," I no longer have access to the money that I might have spent on a competing product that did allow a trial version and that might have satisfied what I was looking for.

And this is the new form of "demo" for an app? Buyer beware. Be very aware.

Thanks, but no thanks.
