Dear customers! Due to medical circumstances and technical problems (as well as some other reasons), we were unfortunately forced to close down our website and e-mail server for few weeks. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you. However, we are now pleased to tell you that as of today, we are back up and running and conducting business as usual and looking forward to a successful business relationship in the future. We ensure you that we will continue to develop Cocktail and you can soon expect a new beta of Cocktail (Catalina Edition). We would like to once again apologise for all the inconvenience caused by the situation. Sincerely, Maintain

What about validating my license key of my life time license? It is not accepted anymore!

I've used Cocktail for *years* and depended on it. Seems from some notes below that this situation has changed. I just recently upgraded to OS 10.13 (yeah, yeah, very overdue). Had to get the High Sierra version & noted the maintain.se website has gone dark. Was able to get the update elsewhere, but concerned if this is the end for Cocktail & Maintain.

Same over here. I am quite annoyed about this. Didn't know a life time is that short these days

It seems there is something inherently wrong at 'Maintain'. It has worked well for a few years, but now it has suddenly developed a glitch that I can only assume stems from the desire to take, but not to give. As several other complainants have stated; don't waste your time writing, there will be no reply.

I bought Cocktail a few years ago with an expensive lifetime-license, which according to the provider never expires. Since the last update this license and the serial number doesn't work anymore. Now I have to pay for Cocktail again. I contacted the developer several times, but don't get an answer. Such behaviour is untrustworthy! Therefore I cannot recommend Cocktail any more. Hands off this app!

I purchased this program back in August and have been trying to get my serial number to use the program. I have called and emailed since then still no number. I believe this is a scam. I can't believe there are this many good reviews and I can't get a response from Maintain,

0.0 stars. I've been a registered user of this app since Tiger, and have always thought highly of it -- the app and support from the developer -- but beginning with the Mojave version, both are now just awful. Avoid it. Save your money and use Onyx instead.

"What do you think about Cocktail ?" NOTHING GOOD at all. AVOID this application and don't purchase it, particularly for Catalina. It looks like aggravated theft : I bought the Catalina release on October 8th. Get the registrations key for High Sierra and Mojave I still own.. Receiving some days later the Catalina key which doesn't work for Catalina, message on screen was absolute clear. Another claim with copy to Paddle (who manage sales and activations for their partners). Email answer from Paddle : we'll take your question in account but stop to write to the developer (Maintain). Since this message on 12th of October, nothing new, absolute nothing.. Asking for news and explanations : Nothing. The 19th I have the release which works as demo but unable to activate. I think these entities still live ? My impression, but without 100% certainty, is that the developer never changes his software from one release to the next one or just a few here and there, only the release number and related activation code are changed. Each time at full charge of course. This could work until a certain technical state, but perhaps not with Catalina. 32 bits applications are out and many internal things are changed with 10.15 MacOS. His last release could be unfinished regarding the activation process ? The first guy (actually me) buying the Catalina release will be caught ! So, DON'T go to this pitiful provider.

This was once a good product. Now, although they claim to have a Catalina release, the OS will not allow that release to be opened. Attempting to open Cocktail results in this message: "Cocktail.app" can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information. Safari downloaded this file today at 11:22 AM from www.maiintain.se. So far, the developer has ignored my requests for help. At the moment, this app is useless.

I had spent a lot of time to get money back for the Catalina version which doesn't work, because of bad registration given from the editor. Who doesn't answer any request from my side and the Paddle's one. Thanks to PayPal I had get money back, quickly with no big discussion. The maintain site seems to be forbidden now or dead..? It's not a loss seen from my side. The worst IT provider I encountered during 30 years. There're a lot of other editors who offer better and cheaper solutions.

this developer does not update their app, but even when it was working it did not clear an item from trash that has been stuck there (a leftover backup file that terminal won't let me delete). That was the only reason I bought it, online comments suggesting cocktail would work. Now 3 months after buying it they won't update to the new Catalina, don't waste your money on this app of developer.
