Is anyone running the current version of Labels X on OS X 10.6.7? I googled, but couldn't find anything recent (from 2010-2011) regarding users' experiences, just old stuff from the Tiger days.
In hope someone from the macupdate community could give his/her impressions... ;-)

Now that Lion has been released, I guess my question is irrelevant. The developers never responded to my email regarding the subject. I chose not to install.

Readers should be aware that with the move to have 3 work with Snow Leopard, there is now NO version of Labels X that will work with OS X 10.5.x. Having paid the developer for the app, this seems to me to be fairly shabby business practice.

I started using LabelsX when it first became available in the early days of OS X. I used to organize my workflow using folder labels in prior Mac OS's. In my view LabelsX corrects a real oversight on the part of Apple's design department: The stock colors and their application to only the file/folder names and not the icons are awkward-one of the very few areas where Apple goofed up on design (or at least where I disagree strongly).

The new LabelsX 3.0.1 seems to be stable and unobtrusive from a CPU and memory overhead standpoint. Well done and welcome back!

Labels X is one of the top 10 most important applications for the Mac.

Hi Profinite,

Your message is 7 months old, System Leopard is over a year and a half old, the messages at the URL you cited are a year old. How responsive is this?

Will there be a System Leopard compatible version of Labels X?

Yes?___ (if so, when?)
No?___
Maybe?___

Is there a plan to upgrade Labels X to System Leopard compatibility? If so, what is the plan?

If the coding is difficult, then why aren't Apple programmers helping out in accordance with the provisions of the Apple Developer Connection?

Helllllooooo? Anyone home?

For those who believe that Unsanity does not respond to inquiries, I suggest that you read the announcement in the yellow box at the top of their blog page that has existed for months now:

I own FontCard, FruitMenu, Menu Master, and WindowShade. All of their betas have worked well with Leopard on multiple Mac's.

I had this weird problem too since few days, and didn't have any clue about it. Now it's working again :-)

Thank you Unsanity, for version 1.8.2. It has corrected the problem that appeared with the release of version 1.8.1.

Labels X makes labels the way they are supposed to be. The only downside to my MBP was that Labels X did not work with the Intel processor. This upgrade is allmost like a Christmas gift. My file labels look graceful again, the way they are supposed to look. Looks nice and stable on my machine as well!

So what, Tiger doesn't have lables ? Panther did. What happened ? I think I'd rather have labels than widgets.

Yes Tiger does have labels. This app is for people with 10.2x...

And yeah I would love to know how many items a folder contains as opposed to just the size. I'm sure OS9 used to do it.

Listen here, American Idol, stop with the caps. If you're looking for any kind of response, that's not how it's done.
