Dead product. Does not work with current operating system. Was excellent when it did work.

Simply doesn't work for me. It's enabled, but I get no signs of Google results as depicted in screenshots (e.g., the Yosemite example). Oh well.

Works just fine now that it's been updated, before I was having trouble with some of my other preferences showing I was constantly getting errors telling me that the system could not find them, but now since the update everything is fine.

I like the idea but it don't work for me, it fouled up one of my other preferences, I could not lounch Tap Dex preferences after installing it so i had to remove it.
I really wish it would work it's a good idea, perhaps the next version.

I would like to add something to a previous post, after posting the develuper contacted me saying he thought he knew what was causing the problem I was having and that he would get back to me in a day or so with a fix well he sent me a fix to the problem and it worked like a charm.
This is about the best tech support I have ever gotten, better then some of the apps I paid for, all I can say is excellent ?????

This rocks! I was expecting it to slow Spotlight down, but it doesn't seem to. I wish, though, that I could set it to more than 10 results, and of course it would be better if the results were listed under a heading other than "Bookmarks", such as "Google Results", but I'm sure that's not currently possible.

I got the same problem.
I must admit it's a really good idea but it's just not working on my system.

I think Google Importer is a great idea. I downloaded and tried it out, but so far it's not working for me.

Hi,
I am aware of the issue, know the cause, and am trying to figure out a solution.

I did say that this was a beta, right :)

Thanks for your patience,

This happened after I installed this software.

Uninstaling it didn't fix it, and neither does any form of relogging or rebooting:

The program didn't work either when I attempted to use it, before and after editing the preferences.
