Well it was great with Jaguar, but doesn't work in Panther so I don't think it does either on tiger. It's a shame though. Hope the developper will wake up !!!

I was just about to install this application on my Mac, but after reading Jim, William & X9's posts I don't think I'll risk it.

Alright, well, i have everyone beat here. I was running 10.2.4 for about a week. No problems. Did disk repairs, back ups, the whole nine yards, yeah?

Well, then comes along this app promising good things. what it gave me was THE BLUE FRIKKIN SCREEN OF DEATH!


After restarting, it wouldn't quite get to the login screen, it jsut stopped at a blue screen. Hell, the Apple Techs couldn't figure it out after running me through EVERYTHING they new of to restart the system. fsck, pram, EVERYTHING.

I had to do a total reinstall of OSX on my drive, then manually copy everything back into it.

I hate this program til I die.

Tried to use with the same results as before and what others have experienced - Freezes and failure to work. I researched the developers web site and found no mention of the problems and the history document has no mention of fixing the problems or that they still exist - just cosmetic changes. He certainly can provide a legal disclaimer, ask for donations and display his resume, but can't provide a support page. Guess he is another victum of the CS virus - a virus that silenty invades its victums and leaves with no trace orther than leaving its victums with a total loss of common sense.

Seems to me this is one program to either ignore or to provide you with an opportunity to mess up your system.

The reason I am giving such a low rating is that by his own history log, he did nothing to address previous complaints about "showstopper" bugs. I have also learned that it is better not to have a tool, than to have one that does not work. If this is "BetterSound" then the developer must believe that silence is golden - i.e. a product that does not work should earn you massive amount of donations. Oops, I forgot - he is a CS Virus casualty. Lets all send him "get well soon" cards. If you have a .Mac account it is real easy. His email address is: acretet@free.fr

I hope the developer doesn't accuse me of "sour grapes", given that he is French and I'm from California. :-)

Just like JWEIL I also finished a system reinstall of Jaguar 10.2.4 and Installed BetterSound then restarted. Was also Confronted with blank screen that said "Loading" with nothing happening. Tried it again and got a blank screen forcing me to force quit System Preferences.

Everything else works on my Mac apart from that - so it's definately not my system at fault. Also chucked it since no app ever has been able to freeze System Prefs before. This is not a good sign.
Waste of time!!!
