The developer is on top of things and fixed both of the above issues (saving strings and close the application via the red x) in version 1.9.

Well done, and thanks for the prompt fix :)

It's a decent application. The interface is kind of basic and the application's functions are very basic, but it has potential.

There is a bug, though. Start up iChatState and then click the red x in the corner to close the application. There's currently no way of re-opening or opening a new instance of the application. You'd have to quit the application for it to show the GUI again.

Otherwise, it's a decent app and does as described.

Also forgot to mention, there's no way of saving the custom string for the next time you open the application.

So for instance, if I have load averages as my first message and uptime as my second message and later close the app because I am done with iChatAV, I can't reopen the iChatState later and have my previous settings/messages saved, unfortunately. I'd have to recreate the messages, which is kind of annoying.
