This is a beautifully made app. It really looks the business and in theory does an awesome job. Although it crashed a lot on Leopard 10.5.6 but now in 10.5.7 there is no chance, it won't even let me sign in now without crashing.

It's a real shame because this is a stunning app. I would happily pay around $5 for this or donate if it worked. Which it doesn't.

Nice looking app, but it is too unstable for me to keep it.

Crashes in OSX 10.5.7 on my iMac 24" Alu 2,4 Ghz... Worked ok with 10.5.6 except the fact that it could not auto log in.

4.0 is a huge improvement, I like how you can check your Halo 3 service record and pictures too!

I had the same error:
Unable to Connect to Xbox Live
The error returned was "NSRangeException : *** -[NSCFString substringWithRange:]: Range or index out of bounds"

Solved it this way: When you sign in to XBL with Safari, be sure to select "Save my e-mail address and password." This is essential, but is not the default on the sign-in page.

On Safari Cookies 'only from sites you navigate to' is on, but no change.

If you log in with safari and set it to remember your email and password then Xbox Live Friends will work.

Do you think it would be possible to cut down on the RAM usage? I'm not sure if it's just because it's Applescript, but it's using about 45MB of RAM (I have it hidden and running in the background and call it up if I need it)

Thanks,

Can't log in to Xbox within the application at all.

"Unable to Connect to Xbox Live

Gutted.. this app looks perfect.

Please ignore the above review. The developer is fixing the problem, which incidentally is related to Xbox.com messing around, and is not his fault.

I persistently get an error whenever the friends list goes to reload.

AppleScript Error

Can't make file (file "Macintosh HD:Users:USERNAME:Desktop:Xbox Live Suite 2.2:Xbox Live Friends.app:Contents:Resources:Scripts:Friends List.scpt") into type file. (-1700)

Also, this thing devours half of my CPU whenever it goes to check status. I don't think there would be a way to fix that, though (since M$ hasn't streamlined 360 checking yet).

I'm on 10.4.5, PowerBook G4 1.5GHz 1gig RAM

Thanks for all yr hard work!

Problem solved when I closed first instance of the program, as I did not notice I had two open. :) Thanks again!

It looks like it could be a cool app, but when I try logging in with my .net thing, I get an error saying that cookies must be turned on to log it. Cool use of webkit, though!
