The Meetro website will (without asking, or even mentioning myspace) attempt to sign in to myspace using the username and password you supply to sign up for Meetro, and then spam all your myspace friends from your account when you complete the signup process. AVOID IT!

Like MySpace, but with an even worse interface. It uses an odd mixture of stand alone application and web interface that just doesn't work well.

Many of the forms don't have "submit" buttons, closing such a form then asks you to submit it.

It incorrectly placed my location as being in New York, though I'm in California. I've updated my location but it still thinks I'm in New York!

There's no actual web interface to the service so you have to download this custom app to access it. This significantly educes the overall usefulness.

Bottom Line: Avoid

Seems pretty neat so far. Needs a Preferences window under the App Menu, though. I like the design and the concept. Keep working on it :).

Crashed within 2 minutes of installing on my MacBook C2D.

Further, I don't like the interface at all. And customization of it seems entirely non-existant. Further, its just loading webpages inside it's embedded browser. and those pages are rather ugly by today's standards as well.

Further still, they're a bit misleading on the whole "myspace" integration, or any other kind of integration as far as i can tell. you may actually be able to use it as a chat application for other networks, but i couldn't find where with that ugly and confusing web 0.5 interface, and frankly it crashed when i was just clicking around, so why should i care -- let alone trust it to replace adium or ichat?

and finally.... there's no upfront indication of their revenue model here. they say they're anti-spyware, anti-adware and that it's free, but how are they making their money? everyone needs to make money to stay in business, and the ones that don't tell you how are usually doing it in ways you don't like.

oh and guys.... um subdomain names of "dude" and "meth" are not confidence instilling. if these are the things you're thinking of at work, i don't want to give you permissions or my passwords... oh shit. now i have to go in and change my msn, yahoo and gmail passwords. dammit.

This thing is waaaaay beta. I can't do much of anything in it without it crashing. It does seem to remember the settings I've changed, but it doesn't seem to be able to upload a profile photo from my local disk or remember my usr/pw from one session to the next, even when I quit it instead of it crashing. Not ready for prime time.

Well, I have an Intel Mac. I noticed that acording to this page, currently they only support PPC Macs. This might be why I cannot log in.

Anyone else expriencing the same with an Intel Mac?

As of today the network was having bandwidth issues. The app works for me, but I haven't seen the yahoo/msn/aim functionality mentioned on the Macworld article.

The people at Meetro was very helpful. At first sight it's an issue with my ISP, or something like that, but they sent me the right version by e-mail, because for some reason I was linking to an old one.
It's great to find developers with such love for their work.
Anyway, it's working ok right now, even from a regular download.

For some reason the last update it's not working, but any of the previous versions are working. I hope the good people developing this for the Mac, good people indeed, can fix the issue soon.
