latest version 1.0.3 works initially then my iPhone disappears and iBetterCharge starts spinning perpetually.

Great idea that's close to working as advertised.

Also needs Setup instructions on developer's website since its not 100% intuitive, even for geeks

Nice app... but I'd really like to be able to assign more user friendly device names / locations to each device.. Like Kitchen Airport Express, Living Room Airport Express, Living Room TiVo, etc... and have LanScan remember these when I re-open it. This is especially helpful since often devices don't respond with any name... or the same name which is useless if you have more than one (we have FOUR Apple Airport Express extending our WiFi in our large house).

EXACT SAME PROBLEM HERE since the 12.2.7 "upgrade":

I have the Entourage prefs set to NOT auto show images in emails unless the sender is in the address book. Normally, when one receives a non-address book email the "header" of the email will have a "Click here to download images" area. Unless you click that message, no images will be shown. After the 12.2.7 update, either the clickable message is totally gone, or is tremendously slow to appear (10+ SECONDS for EACH email !!!). So far, about 80% of the time there is no way to show images with this security setting.

And yet another reason why we can't WAIT to be rid of MicroSLUG apps once and for all!

At least we only have to run WinBLOWS for 4 apps that are still WinBLOWS only... Hope to have that down to 3 shortly... but still not soon enough!

Didn't recognize my Vonage Linksys PAP2 adapter even with verified IP address.

GREAT feature set if it would only work! 8-)

Works GREAT! Easiest way to set Google Voice... Google should BUY this from you and offer it!

Only "wish" is to somehow have an additional GV Connect Widget for my 2nd GV number... Any suggestions?

Thanks for this great widget... It should be on MacWorld's GEM list!

Thanks! Your "How To" duplicate a widget worked! I should have read the Mac OS X instructions...
