cool idea! but the app... its pretty bad. doesn't do anything except waste space on your hard drive. all these warning windows pop up everytime you try to do something, but you can't read any of the warnings, they are running out of the window cause the text is so effing large. so i blindlyy click the buttons in these windows, still get nothin. not even sure why this was release yet.

This is still buggy software... I just downloaded 1.5 and opened it up (while ichat was closed) to see what options it had. I clicked through all the panes and decided not to use it/change anything. When I next opened up my iChat it hangs every time I try to change my status. In fact at this point I can't change my status. This is a new problem since I downloaded iChat Extender. i do not recommend this software.

I'm really very sorry for you're trouble. I would recommend restarting you're computer. iChat Extender doesn't change anything in iChat unless you click apply. However, if it persists, try enabling the iChat menu item and changing you're status via the menu item. Sometimes there is some error that causes things to falter that happens when iChatAgent (the menu item) varies from iChat. Dan

A simple but effective little addition to iChat, this and Chax address most of the shortcomings of Apple's chat app. I've never had any problems whatsoever with iChat Extender.

"Fixed a mispelling in the Styles tab" That's great but you've misspelled misspelling.

Downloaded and installed with 0 hitches, as did several of my colleagues. If you end up with a Artist% Genre% status, just switch the status to something else, then back to Current iTunes Track and it works after that. Excellent support as well.

If you manage to get this software to do the thing it should do, then you will get disconnected every time there is a track change in iTunes. Not a very usefull app...
