"Run Google Analytics as a native application"

I do not think that phrase means what you think it means.

it's basically a browser (without address bar), it's not an app that pull data from GA.
anyway, it works.

That's it. The app icon bounces one time and nothing happens.

have you tried using the console application, included as part of OSX, and see if the logs provide you with more information?

I did not want the app in my applications folder, so I installed it under "Utilities". It needs to be installed under "Applications" or it won't function properly. After all, it is a utility.

As I have not yet found anything unique about this utility that differs from Analytics (WEB), I'll stick with my rating.

This is actually working great on the Utilities or any other folder in my Mac, you must be doing something wrong.
Oh well, I am sorry to hear that though.

It's really not a big deal. It's probably a permissions problem that is not worth trying to figure out. I am happy using Analytics on my iPad and the web. BTW, it is working on my MBP after reinstallation into "Applications".

Permissions, unlikely, requires a specific location, probably, though rare, only one other program I have installed
requires this.

Ah ha the answer

Yep. That was it.

Would it be so hard to code an error message into all your apps to log in syslog that the app needs to be in the /Applications folder?

Or to actually ask the user if they want to move it there? If they say no, have it delete itself.

Or change the art in the install DMG to saying YOU MUST MOVE APP to /Applications for it to work.

Personally, I can't think of any technical reason why an App would only run in /Applications and no where else. That's just sloppy coding. But not bothering to check that this is the problem is worse. It's lazy coding.

iWebApplications don't actually write their applications. Rather, they're built using an experimental piece of software from Mozilla which generates single-site browsers in a few clicks. This seems to be a limitation of that software, and as it is long-since abandoned, it's unlikely to ever be fixed.

It seems that they've added a message to the DMG files, however.

All your other apps don't run on 10.6.8 on my system:

% java -version
java version "1.6.0_29"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_29-b11-402-10M3527)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.4-b02-402, mixed mode)

This is the most current version of Java for 10.6.8 that I know of.
