I have an iMac 350Mhz. Why does my Napster Client crash when I download more than one song. Stupid app! I like Rapster more, but Kazaa is better than Rapster. A pity it's only for Windoze. But I think they'll release a Mac version in the future. Now, I have to do it with Virtual PC 4.0 (bit slow) and Kazaa. Works fine for me...

I think Napster is awesome, it's free and even throughout the tough legal problems it's still there pulling through. I think it's great, because Napster doesn't make me wan't to "steal" music, I probably download one mp3 and like it so much to go out and buy the cd. It's just like taping a song off the radio.

Wish it had a built in player. Maybe theres an addon for that, but I can live with a seperate app. Hasn't crashed on me yet.

Napster lacks soo much. First of all the format where there is that small control window from which like 7 other windows can be reached just causes clutter. The peple at Napster should look at rapster or even the windows version of Napster. Also Napster for windows has a player and a library embedded in the program which makes life alot more convenient. Napster rarely crashes for me but has bugs with the transfer window where sometimes when i download songs they don't appear in the transfer window but go to my download folder so i don' know about that. I'm hoping napster will come out with a version that resembles the windows version and well that's it.

this is not an update. this is the same damn program as before. literally. there's only one new thing. the "discover new music" button, unless i never saw that before. but seriously...i see nothing different besides that, and there's no note of an update in the read me nor in the version field in the Info window. but if it really is new, what's been changed/fixed?
