I can't figure out the version scheme. I bought version 3 a while ago, and did not upgrade to version 4 when you (Maris) bought it from the previous developer. Then your company said you had shifted to the Mac App Store and to buy from them. On 5/21/13 the Mac App Store said: "Redshift - Astronomy: Version 7" which I added to my wish list. Now the Mac App Store says version 2 (dated 9/26/13) is just released. 7 down to version 2? Can you please explain all the versions?

Remove Redshift sandbox folder. Run Terminal and type the command: sudo rm -Rf ~/Library/Containers/com.usm.Redshift Then try to start the app. If this won't help remove the app manually: - remove sandbox again (even wrong start of the app can create it) - remove /Applications/Redshift folder - reboot the system (to clean possibly cached info about the app) - try to reinstall from the App Store

I have removed the majority of this crash report. Please do not post crash reports or console logs to the MacUpdate listings, but send them directly to the developer.

The last Redshift version for PowerPC Macs was Redshift 3 in late '90s. Redshift 4...7 are Windows PC software only. The new program for iOS/Mac app stores is named "Redshift - Astronomy" and the latest versions are: 1.8 for iOS; 2.0.1 for OS X.
