So - now that their server is down - of course I LOST the download I'd done of version 1.81 b1 (never had installed it 'cause I'm still on Lion). Anybody have it somewhere?

This is me... cranky! Thanks Ed612 for letting me know.... :(

Anybody find ANYTHING else that's nearly as comprehensive out there? Looks like whatever MaxMenus did is also dead. I love FinderPop, but it doesn't have everything I used it for. Seems like I'd have to run something like 7 background apps to replace just the fundamental things I used this for... SAD!

This was a great app, I'd buy it again if I could. I've been using it for many years it has had stability issues here and their but it was still a #1 must have app for your Mac. When I upgraded to my 27"IMac I was so disappointed when I learned I could not activate my you control app.

Great app! I updated from 1.7.2 to 1.8b on an OLD Mac. I'd like to get 1.8b running on a NEW Macbook Pro. Is there any way to do that?

When I click Register I get something like: "Error in registration. Couldn't connect to the server." I'm GUESSING I cannot deactivate YC on my old machine (b/c YC has no active server to process it), but I'm afraid even to try, b/c then it might not work on either machine.

All suggestions welcome!

I think this app was great. My problem is that cleanmymac disabled it. I deleted you control and reinstalled it. Now I can't register the software. yousoftware.com can't be found. Can anyone help with this problem?

The same thing just happened to me. :-( Wish I'd read your posting before I ran CleanMyMac. Could you possibly send me the installer for 1.8b1? I only have an old version dmg.

YouControl has become such an important part of how I work over the years, I can’t believe it’s discontinued. I hope it is resurrected by someone.

Does anybody know if the version 1.7.2 works with Mountain Lion? If not, I'll never upgrade my OS - if so, I'll consider it.

I'll miss you, YouControl...

I can't believe they discontinued this.
I've never used, nor am aware of, another app that is as robust when it comes to custom menus.
Please find a way to continue this.

I'm disappointed to see that You Software has discontinued YouControl as of June 2012. I've used this app for years, and have never found an adequate replacement. I hope the developers someday can find a way to resurrect You Control - or perhaps let it go into the public domain as open source.

Absolutely excellent app!!
I used to use MaxMenus but this is enormously better in every way.
Well worth the money.
Thanks... keep up the great work.
