Where does one get a copy of version 10.6?? My copies (10.4 & 1.5) both say (Get the new version at Stockmenulet.com) in my menu.

I bought this app about a year ago, and except for one glitch which Phil (developer) fixed last July, it has worked fine, til now. Suddenly the whole thing has fallen over, doesn't update, doesn't respond, won't display the stock I request, all sorts of problems which make it useless. To top it all my e-mails are unanswered leaving me with useless software. Can anyone recommend a decent ticker for Snow Leopard? BTW Don't take any notice of the star rating as at the moment I can't give it any stars.

Does anyone know if this application still exists; i.e. is anyone keeping it up? I have tried a t least 4 or 5 times to contact the developer. but I have yet to receive an answer.

The application sees to be working again although not always. When you click "Visit developers" site , you just receive a notice that the "Account has been closed". I would NOT advise buying now, but I would suggest that some programmer make an application that does what this one is supposed to do

Everything is working again but I have yet to hear from the developer. Perhaps he died at some point; I do not know!! Do not pay for this app unless you do not care about money!!

Hi,
I now realize that I bought a copy of this error at the Apple app store. It is version 10.5. The latest version at this location is 10.4. Yet both versions constantly say to go to the developers web page to get the latest version of the software. Is there a version 10.6 somewhere?

What I love about this stock ticker is the NEWS. I've used several tickers over the years and this is the *only* one that provides instant access to news items. This arrangement mirrors my own thought process...when I see that the stock price is changing, I immediately want to know the reason for the change.

Stock Menulet shows Twitter updates in addition to news items. I thought I wouldn't like this but it is actually pretty cool. Seeing these items gives me the feeling that I am in a very active chatroom.

Stock Menulet 8 is the answer to my quest for "instant status" of my entire stock portfolio! Accurate - always available with a mouse click - or via automatic scrolling in the Menu Bar. This easy-to-use and personalize "MenuWidget" is faster than F12 for widgets and does so much more! (News Flash feature saved me from making a bad buying decision just last week!) Plus the developer listens to feedback and gives personal service! Give me more programs like Stock Menulet!! A MUST - should be standard issue on all Macs! Steve

Save $3 and check out StockMeter... now that's a menubar app that handles stocks to the fullest and it's free. I know this app [Stock Menulet] was out before Stock Meter so your response is valid up until StockMeter was released making a new standard for menubar stock apps.

This app is dead-simple but has some nice flourishes. My favorite feature is the news links. When an interesting price floats across the menu bar, I can click and get a list of news articles to try to figure out what is causing the price movement.

Version 7 did crash on me a few times but Version 8 seems very stable.

Convenient. Does what it says. Links to latest news feeds is useful. Could be more customizable, like set order of stocks and data tracked. Fixing date in columns rather than separating by commas or whatever could make the list better visually. it is unclear what the difference is between the trial version and the paid version. Ratings are therefore provisional.

still no auto-update within the app and to make it even worse, if you paid for the app they don't even email you the new version. I don't get it. Promise but no passion at getting customers what they want. I would not recommend this app to anyone until items such as this are fixed... instead look at limit-point and buy their utilities package which has stocklookupMBI (does what this app does + more for the same price, + you receive all their other useful utilities)

I would eMail the developer. When I had questions, I did that and have received support and features and more. When I think I have purchased some programs for $100 and more and received virtually no support; and then this $3 program which I use everyday and the support is like having a personal programmer in my office-- yeah, just eMail Phil and I'm sure he'll assist 100%. Best regards, Steve
