I agree, it looks like a good candidate to eventually replace Spirited Away (which hasn't worked real well for me in recent Leopard versions). I'll keep an eye on this app's development.

Cannot get update from developer -- it goes to the Apple Ap store, the when you click on support it takes you to the developer's website but no way to contact. The software I have won't self update -- says there is no update but obviously there is a newer version. Not an issue about money as much as it should not be this hard to get an update without needing to buy it a second time -- the principal of it.

The program crashes too frequently. Please fix this problem.

Huh, odd - the application opens for a second and then closes. I see the item in the menubar for a couple of seconds, and then it disappears. I checked my activity monitor and the application is definitely not open...

I see similar behavior on my G5 and Intel iMacs, both running Leopard. Window Cleaner opens as expected and seems to do its job for some time, but eventually vanishes from the menu bar. I haven't yet tracked down what kills the application.

On my computer too, it crashes every once in a while. I'm running Snow Leopard. I hope they can soon identify the problem.

Hi, great app idea - but i am wondering if you have thought about the following modification: * shorter time (5 minutes can be very long ;) Apart from that ... its a good software and i'm looking forward to replace Spirited Away with it. Best regards fidel
