There are other TV listing sites/services they could have chosen that offer FREE TV listings. Why did they opt for a service that you need to pay for? titantv is the first free service to come to mind, they should have gone with that. I don't think I will ever pay for a TV listing widget or TV listing service - there will always be a free alternative.

This used to be my favorite widget but it's no longer really free. Through no fault of the developer, the (previously free) source for the TV listings went under (labs.zap2it.com). So now you have to pay a subscription to a third party to get the same information we used to get for free. Particularly annoying to those of us with, for instance, TiVo, who are already paying for the information. Still a great widget but not really "free" anymore. Would have rated Version 3.0 as a 4 (uses a lot of RAM and crashed - but useful none-the-less) but, because of the (what I consider) excessive charge, I rate 3.5 as a 2. The charge is not a one-time cost either - it's a subscription charge.

As someone else mentioned, not having the titles rollover in 3.0 is a bit of a pain. However, the main problem is it leaks/uses massive amounts of memory. After running it for a couple days it was using 400+ MB of physical memory vs 2.0 which only uses 15 MB. Back to 2.0 until 3.0 gets the kinks worked out.

I kind of like version 2 better (while it worked). The main addition is resizing, but it works really slowly (sort of like resizing a window on OS X 10.1) - also, sometimes show titles get stuck outside the viewing area. Also, scrolling is pretty choppy (and not helped by the "smooth scrolling" animation). Still, it's a pretty slick widget, and hopefully version 3 will improve.

Okay last comment... Don't bother telling the authors, they ignore their emails. Free app or not, that's just stupid to ignore your users.

I agree, it takes FAR too long to update, and often won't update at all, and often won't even let you choose the dropdown menu to UPDATE NOW. At this moment at 7 pm, TV Tracker is STUCK at 9 am this morning and refuses to let me do a thing. It wasn't quite as bad until the 10.4.7 update to OS X. Now it's such a pain in the ass it's gonna get dumped off my system til they get a decent update to it and update their servers to handle the traffic. It's really VERY cool when it works, and I especially like being able to select only the channels I watch. The other thing is, they COULD make the scrolling work with a mousewheel scroll, but it doesn't right now.

I can confirm after numerous weeks of testing that this widget does not work. While at times the server appears to upload the information necessary for the widget to perform, the sheer percentage of time this widget is "offline" makes it unuseable in its current incarnation.

Takes 4 EVER to load...other than that, if/when it loads, it's great.

Doesn't work at all if you already have a zap2it account. You have to create a new account to enter TV Tracker's certification code, and even then the widget doesn't display TV listings.
