I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue?

I recently bought a new 13" retina MBP, which works great, when I install MMumenu 2.1.4 (latest) it does not start at login even though it's checked in preferences. On my old Macbook 2,1 running lion 10.7.5, it worked fine and it had a login item. there is no login item on the new macbook u;under mavericks 10.9.1. I'm thinking it's MUmenu specific as all my other apps that have a start at login option work fine. Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks!

Just wondering: anyone using MU Menu with Bartender (on ML 10.8.5)? I noticed that when I put MU Menu into Bartender, it always shows as "Updated" not as "Regular"; even if no new apps are listed in MU Menu. The MU Menu icon set works just fine when it sits in the OS X menu bar. Anyone else experiencing this?

FWIW: latest Bartender update appears to have fixed the issue.

MuMenu 2.1.4 no longer works for me having just updated to Mac OS 10.8.5.
Simply will not open or sit in my top menu bar.

MUMenu stopped working for me within the past 24 hours. I am now getting the following in the MUMenu menu:

Error: Couldn't parse list

Is an update in the works?

It should be fixed now. There was a brief outage with a big site update.

Hi MuMenu-developer,
MuMenu now highlights some programs in red text. Would it be an idea to color the promos in another color? Extra attention for the offers and visually a smaller list of updates.

Furthermore, imho when selecting a program, the info can be simplified/combined: Both the description as the 'More info' lead to the MU-site with info on the program.

A very useful menu bar addition -- but that said, it is very frustrating to use. VERY FREQUENTLY when I click on the "Download XXX" item, it takes me to the "Order XXX" site instead. I wish that whoever manages this from the MU end of things would realize that ORDERING is not the same as DOWNLOADING. As a result I often have to go the the MU site, find the item and click the DOWNLOAD button to download it -- which rather defeats the purpose of having a convenient menu bar item.

Hmm, odd... I use MUMenu very frequently and have never experienced the behavior you describe. I have noticed that MU's new listings appear in MUMenu before they appear on the MacUpdate main page.

Those listings in red are "hot apps", apps that are especially good/popular.

One of the problems that's always plagued me with MUMenu is when I "completely" uninstall an app using an uninstall utility, MUMenu still thinks I have it installed. Good example is Google Chrome, which I fully uninstalled the other day (and have rebooted several times since)...still shows up as a colored icon, indicating it's on my system...but it's not.

The MuMenu menu icon has disappeared after installing OSX 10.8. Reinstalling the MuMenu application brings it back to live for a short time, but it dies away when touched. This is the case on two of my macs, an iMac and a MacBook Pro. Is a fix on the way?

after updating to 2.1.3, why are most of the icons generic? Is it because they are not retina icons? In 2.1.2 the same apps had their own icons.

Any apps that are not installed on your Mac will show the generic Application Icon from the OS. Apps that you have installed will show their own icon, allowing you to easily see which apps you have installed that have an update available.

It is 1:55 PST and MU Menu is not updating either by manual or periodic setting. I concur with Archmission something is a miss since yesterday when I first noticed it. I am using OS 10.4.11 on an early Intel iMac.

I removed MUMenu from my start up and then have loaded it this morning and it updated. I will verify if it updates through out the day, but it seems to be working again...

I have been running all morning with it set to update every 15 minutes. It is not updating at all this morning.

Oops, I meant 30 minute updates. It has not updated throughout the day and even when I manually update it, it does not update.

FYI, Desktop does not seem to be updating the communities either. Could this be a web access issue? While not connected, maybe something is similar. Just speculating.

It only updates when I shutdown MUMenu and restart it. Beyond that, it will not update anymore.

I have been on Snow Leopard since it came out so this did not seem to be an issue with SL.

Desktop 5 and MUMenu aren't connected in anyway. None of the resources are shared between the two solutions. I'm currently running MUMenu and Desktop 5 on my Mac without issues.

My guess is that you see MacUpdate Desktop 5 as the top listing and aren't noticing that the new releases are being updated below the top sponsored listing.

Actually Joel, that is partly the case. I see it as the top listing, but the listing below is not updating at all. the list shows up as the same list for over a day. I have stopped running MUMenu today and will try it again tomorrow to see it it changes at all.

Same here, Joel. It's not that the top item (MacUpdate Desktop 5.0) is keeping itself at the top of the list, giving the impression that the list isn't updating. The entire MUMenu list has fallen well behind the updates showing on the MU site. In other words, it isn't updating. Glad you aren't having issues with this, but a number of users suddenly are. Please look into the problem further.
