Attempted to update from 3.2.2 to 3.2.3. The update downloaded but hung when trying to quit the app. Also displayed some strange messages about Low Disk space in the Console.

In any case, after force-quitting, the app re-opened and the new version was there.

Think the developers might want to look into the in-app update issue.

WORD TO THE WISE: In some cases, after you install this latest LogMeIn update, it will completely fail to work until you restart the computer.

I discovered this after having various problems on my desktop (Mac Pro running 10.8.5), including not being able to connect to it from other computers on my same local network AND noticing literally hundreds of log messages about something going wrong.

A restart stopped all of this from happening.

Latest version looks very nice. Only one bug (on Mac). the "Connect To Computers" DOES NOT store the account password. Works fine on Windows.

Please fix this bug guys. Now that the service is moving to a paid-only subscription model, this kind of stuff will not fly.

Love this program, HOWEVER, the last update seems to have broken something on the Search screen.

Hoping the developer can figure this out and fix it soon.

In addition, you will probably hear from them and they'll ask you to take the download off of your site...

The "demo" lets you add addresses but does not have any way to add a "trip". Without being able to do this, the demo is completely useless. Also, would be helpful to allow locations to be added directly from the Address Book...

I had version 6.4 installed on a Snow Leopard system (10.6.8) and it ran fine. Installed version 7 and it crashes immediately upon launch.

The developer's webpage says it runs on 10.6 - so does the info on MacUpdate. Is it possible this is not accurate?

So.... this has the same description as the previous Java Update from Apple. How is it different??

Still crashing on my system. Does not seem to prevent display of forecasts, but crashes consistently.

Really want the developer to fix this once and for all...

"Update Improperly Signed" - Can't these folks get their act together ??

Just purchased Flux v.4 and the download is going very, very, very slow even over my broadband connection. Nothing else is going slow.

If you're going to offer an update, how about making sure the download site is working properly!!

Received a message from the developer. If you've purchased the update and are having trouble downloading version 4, try http://s3.amazon.com/Flux/FluxV4.zip

This update has proven to be VERY unstable, especially on my MacBook Pro, which after the initial update and reboot caused EVERYTHING to crash repeatedly.

After rebooting, it seemed to be fine. Running a permissions repair revealed ALOT of things needing repair.

Did someone in Apple's QA department fall asleep while testing this thing??

This widget installed fine but will not display ANY data. Kind of useless, which is unfortunate since their website is so helpful and their previous widget worked fine.

NOTE: I love this utility, I just think the developer should note that this version is ONLY for Leopard.

I think this one may be Leopard only, since on my system (10.4.10), it crashed the WindowServer process, then caused the WindowServer process and mds process to utilize 70-80% of the processor.

It also prevented me from opening OS X Archive (.zip) files.

Removing the software eliminated these problems.
