It's a useful app when it works. However, customer service seems nonexistent, no response at all. I am giving it a low rating based on poor client care.

I have paid for the licence, but never received the licence to my email address! Contacted support and it is already a week without response! THE COMPANY IS STEALING MONEY.

I had a fresh install of MacOS Catalina, then immediately installed uBar. I haven't had any issues and updates just fine. Have installed multiple apps and then uninstalled, no issues with uBar at all.

In general, I like the app. But it has bugs that are affecting me and the support site (hosted at brawersoftware.atlassian.net) has been unavailable for a month, with no reply from the dev to my emails. I'm not happy paying $30 for an abandoned app. That's not the way to treat paying customers.

This developer has ignored everybody for months, including my support request last spring. Wondering if the horrible bug with the dock has been fixed. I will test it out, but if it hasn't, I'm abandoning this app for good.

Since Dock-It ceased to work, being 32 bit, I have tried ALL the dock replacements until finally settling on uBar 4. Once one gets used to the why's and wherefores, its usefulness quickly becomes apparent. One thing I would love to see implemented is being able to grab and drag favourite apps along the favourites task bar, rather than one step at a time. This is cranky and time consuming. Admittedly, once its done, its done but still..... Also would be nice to have 100% transparency instead of just 95%. Finally its good value for money on my Catalina machine, extremely stable. Finally settled on the correct app to replace the dock. Really finally, support E-Mails have for me, so far, gone unanswered. Thats a negative.

In addition, uBar has a quirky bug. In macOS Catalina, In their applications folder from within uBar, non of the apple apps such as Contacts, calendars, textedit, pages - you name it, they are just not there. Ive reported it but who knows if theres actually anyone receiving feedback . Perhaps they are µbarred from answering lol?

I'm assuming now that this is abandonware since the develop doesn't answer anything. Totally fails on Catalina, and has major problems on Mojave.

Relatively useful when it works. As others have noted - zero support. This broke with Catalina, broke more with the latest update, and zero response from the dev. So ultimately, this was a waste of money.

utterly blows... but still far superior to the mac os dock and still worth the money in my opinion. i wish i could just install a proper free desktop (xfce etc.)
