I paid for this and it used to work for me but does not now. I have made several attempts to discuss this with the developer. However, the developer neither responds to direct emails on his web site or to communication attempts via the macupdate troubleshooting area. It seems the developer had either abandoned this app or is neglecting paid customers when they have a question or concern. Why develop a product if you won't respond to customers problems?
I have been using Freespace for a year or so and just noticed it was no longer loading. I upgraded to the latest version 1.2.2, on my 10.6.8 Mac Pro. The program still does not load, as the icon does not appear on the upper right of my screen. I have removed and reinstalled. I have rebooted. All to no effect. I emailed the developer on 1/23/2013, but they never responded.
Thanks for your input! Version 1.1 is out and you can customize the number format in the menu bar. It saves even more pixels than shrinking the font size alone and more readable. I hope you like the feature!
Would be nice to be able to reduce the font size in the menu bar - all my other menu bar items are smaller but FreeSpace font is large and takes up a lot of menu bar - please either give users the option of a smaller, pre-set font size, or allow users to select font/font size.
