I had tried version 1.4.1 when it came out last year but it had trouble loading its own files (db files). It would launch only after deleting these files each and every time I wanted to use MegaTrack. With the hurricane season upon us again, I recently reverted to version 1.4 and it works with no issues, running OS X 10.4.6

I am running Megatrack 1.4.1 on Mac OS 10.4.2. I am able to add cities to the Manage Places but I am not able to edit them or delete them once they are added.

On one computer at work, I went back to MegaTrack 1.3 for a while & then re-installed version 1.4.1 and it has been working for me ever since. On another, identical computer I found a copy of MegaTrack 1.4, installed that, and have had no problems since. Both are 1GHz G4 Powerbooks. Both had the "cannot open database" problem with version 1.4.1.

Won't launch anymore (version 1.4.1 under OS X 10.4.2)... Emailed the developer maybe a week ago and I am still awaiting a response.

Same problem here. Cannot restart it unless all three "trackdb" files are deleted by hand, losing all previous info and places entered. Does anyone know of an alternate hurricane tracker that works? (using OS 10.3.9).

Tried the program under OSX 10.3.9 but it can't read the database after restart and quits. I have to delete the db by hand to be able to start the app again. Any suggestions?

Works fine now (see 'Editor's Note, above on this MacUpdate page)... uses a *little* bit less RAM than previous version(s). Very nice app, and I have donated.

Also bounced in the dock and quit. I'm using Tiger 10.4.2. Where can I get the earlier version?

Version 1.4.1 bounces in the dock a few times, won't launch... I reverted to version 1.4, no problems.

Great little app that's really come in handy here in Florida. Have recommended it to family members elsewhere so they can see exactly when I'm going to get blown away again! (large grin) Small bug - if you add your own "places", you can't remove them. You can't remove the default places either, so now I'm stuck with New York and Newark overwriting each other. Minor inconvenience, but still...

Can't get it to even open. Dock moves slightly, but icon never appears, program never starts.

This is the type of app that would be a great widget.

Hey, nice, even more coverage (Pacific Ocean)! Since I live on the Pacific coast of Mexico, this new version is very welcome. I do realize the previous version had some useful (for me) coverage of the Pacific, but now it is so much better. Thanks to the developer. Muchas gracias.

MUCH improved. Many thanks, and keep coding. I gave it a 3 star rating for 'Features' because I'd like to see the app cover the Pacific coast. I live in Mexico. Easy to use, simple. 5 stars. Value, what could be better than an app that works and is free? 5 stars. I gave it a 4 star rating for 'Stability' not because it has ever crashed on me, but because it _has_ needed a force-quit or two which subsequently had the strange effect of making the OS X Dock inaccessible until I quit and restarted the Finder, but that happened in the previous version. This version looks to be much better but I am not sure yet, so... 4 stars.

Very cool software - one bug I've found, though; even if you select "Only Show Active Storms," the inactive storms remain clickable on the map. I was trying to double-click on Ivan, but it kept bringing up Charley (which followed much the same course) even though Charley was hidden.

Tried using version 1.1. The data from the National Hurricane Center is quite different than what is updated...location, intensity, etc. Plus there doesn't appear to be a way to contact the developer concerning problems. Plus I keep getting an error message telling me that it can't update the storm database. I check my internet connection, it is fine. Not sure what is happening. Given this active hurricane season this program has some real potential benefit. Hopefully he can fix the problems so everyone can enjoy his work.

I use dos based storm for PC which is not offered anymore but the best ever. This is a great second tracker for my Macs. This needs full storm archive, and ability to select storms by name and season and it would rule! If the storms were then animated and you could turn the projected path on or off it would really rule!!! still 5/5, great start and already better then most of the current trackers..

I live in FL, and with our busy hurricane season this year, it is nice to be able to quickly see where the current hurricane has been, is at present, and its forecasted track. It saves flipping through channels on TV or going to various websites to find the info. Thank you!

This is a GREAT piece of software. It even works with Jacquar 10.2.8. Now I'm able to keep up to date on hurricanes. Thanks.

Does what it says it will do. Wish it covered the Pacific coast of the Americas, say, from Central America to California.
