Create a list of apps that will not run on OS X 10.7.

Overview

Appsolete allows users to create a list of apps that will not run on OS X 10.7 Lion.

It's time to upgrade to OS X 10.7. But hang on there! You probably have a few older apps that aren't going to play nice...and that's where Appsolete comes in! It lists all of your apps that definitely will not work with OS X 10.7. Appsolete makes it easy to weed out the old apps and start the search for updates (or replacements).

What's new in Appsolete

Version 1.0b8:

New Features:

  • Significant performance enhancements
Fixes:
  • Shows some additional apps that may have slipped by earlier versions

Thanks Ryan, you should inform folks about that.

Why not just list them on a post-it note? Dear Macupdate.com: Please refrain from allowing random publications from hopeful developers that create nothing of use.

Might be nice simply to collectively post people's findings on your site. While you're at it, this idea would be nice for all sorts of extensions, plug-ins etc, provided the results are collectively available.

Apple Menu -> About This Mac -> More Info... -> System Profiler -> Software -> Applications -> ...(wait a few moments while it chugs)... -> Kind (a category) -> scroll down to ~the middle of the window, until you see the Kind being PowerPC, all grouped together. These are the applications that will not run on Lion. Appsolete is an easier, prettier (and equally free) way to get at this information.

Thanks very much for this tip. Very helpful. Don't need Appsolete anymore.

It's gets more complicated too. For instance, you have to force Photoshop CS4 to run in Rosetta in order to run Corel KPT plug-ins. That's going to be out the door too, but won't show up. I think what we need is a website with a database that shows all the issues and what updates are available or the status. Barring that, I think some will be in for some surprises.

What I'd like to see it located is some of those embedded applications like svn. I keep getting a couple of errors from things on my system that use a PowerPC version of svn. I already found all of the applications and removed the ones I do not want anymore. There a some that have updates coming, so I left those there. Embedded PowerPC applications is what I'm looking to remove.

Doesn't work on my system. Scans forever w/out results. Best option is still to select applications in your System Profiler, and look for apps with only PowerPC code. Those won't work under Lion.

Hi guys! If you have a minute, could you maybe crank up Appsolete, let it run for a few minutes then send us a System Profiler report at support@splasm.com? Thanks!

The update 1.0b6 works on my MacBook with OSX 10.6.8; thanks for that. But it shows two programs less then with Aetarias work-around. Missing: Pentax and TomTom Home.

Would you be willing to send us one or the other so we can figure out what the issue is? Right-click on one in the Finder and select the option to compress, then send the result to support@splasm.com. Purely scientific - we'll remove the files when we're done testing. Thanks!
