My Apple computer won't open QIM after the download was completed. I then got an email with a link to glider.ismac.cn/QIM_Sogou_2_0_0_SL.dmg.zip So I click the link, it won't open again. Can you help me? Thanks!

Thus, Download QIM 1.8.3 for Mac OS X 10.4 no longer can access the website to download.

Please assist.

Thank You.

Regards,
Garry Khoo.

This isn't free, it's trialware. It's free to download but the notes in the installer say that after 30 days you have to register.

QIM 2.0.3 is avaiable for Lion. And the main download site was down, so 'Check for updates' won't work -_-||

By far the best Chinese input for Mac.

X'mas just came early. Thanks to the dev for releasing this as a freeware.

The new version is free now. And compares to Sogou, QQ, or the disabled Google input, this is just mature and adjustable to everyone that uses it! Good job, Glider!
But one thing to notice is that every third-party input method including this one has minor problems with wherever it could be or you think could not be. But even the internal one would be strange sometimes.

The download link at the top of this page only yield to the Leopard version, it won't install if you're on Snow Leopard or Lion. To download the OS X 10.6+10.7 release, you have to go to the developer's site or follow this link

The QIM website now says its freeware, so do grab it while you can! However I just hope the developer will continue to develop it even if there is no income coming in. Hope to believe that though, since its coming from China!

Simply so much better than the Apple input system. I've been using QIM/IMKQIM for years. Really good with QIT installed alongside. In Steve Jobs-type parlance, "It just works".
I don't know why this system will only let me give it 4.5 for value. Does it think only something which is free deserves 5 stars?

Though I am an expatriate in China, I live and work here in Beijing. I like QIM. I want to buy QIM but my many, many emails to the software publishers have been ignored. I do not want to use Pay-pal, as Pay-pal wants my PIN for my American bank account! I won't give them that. But why cannot the publishers of QIM, who are here in China, answer emails, whether sent in Chinese or English, about how to buy their product!? How in the world do local Chinese buyers buy the product (answer: they don't).

Publisher: what is the matter with you?

I would give four stars for overall rating, but the stars on Macupdate seem stuck!!!!!! I can't change original clicks.

This is a excellent method of inputting Chinese text, which can also learn your most common combinations.
I use it daily.

In the what's new should state:
IM now remember the 简拼/全拼 frequency separately.
