Although MacUpdate lists version 1.0.4, the developer's website provides version 1.0.5. I was finally able to open DealAlert in Mountain Lion) with version 1.0.5

The developers website has replaced version 1.0.5 with the earlier version 1.0.4. Nevertheless, since I started having problems with version 1.0.5 and Mountain Lion, i reinstalled version 1.0.4 and it works OK now.

I don't know what's wrong, but this app simply does not work. It just crashes a few seconds after opening. I would have preferred to have contacted the developer before submitting a review. However, I can't find a way to make contact with LittleFin.

I was having the same issue. It appears to be a glitch with the update prompt, and no fix or redistributed update seems to exist. I managed to get around the issue by doing this:

1. Go to "Applications" and fine "DealAlert" (if you moved it there, otherwise wherever the .app is).
2. Right-click and click "Show Package Contents" (second from the top) on the context menu.
3. Navigate to "Contents/Library/LoginItems"
4. Double-click the "DealAlertHelperApp" .app file

This appears to push around the update prompt and the app loads up fine. You can quit and then access it as normal without issue. So far it seems the update does not prompt again - so not sure if this will be a problem down the track - but for now, at least the app can be launched.

Hope this helps :).

Heads-up: If you are running Default Folder X you must exclude DealAlert in Default Folder X's exclude preferences.

System Preferences/Default Folder X/Settings (button)/Advanced/

If you do not do this DealAlert will crash upon starting up.
