I agree with Homer99 and Sjmagy. I purchased this app through Macupdate, and they won't let me update simply because I bought the app through Macupdate. So, either CoffeeCup is engaging in illegal bait-and-switch tactics or Macupdate is not sufficiently making clear--in advance--the CRITICAL limitations of software that it sells for third parties.

Transmit 4.4.x has been crashing out-of-the-blue ever since Mavericks was released. I have submitted very specific crash reports to Panic many, many times. Panic has not responded to my emails, either. They clearly have no desire to fix the problem or acknowledge that they can't. Very unprofessional.

Still crashes upon launching in OSX 10.7.3-10.7.6. Developer has done nothing to correct the problem, despite being aware of it for nearly a year.

The $50 price of this app is a complete joke. Hey, "developer," are you not aware that the PR-lookup functionality is available from countless web sites for FREE?

This is an absolutely flawless application. It does what it is designed to do better than any application on my computer (I have hundreds). PNG files from my Web site designer get reduced by up to 80% without any discernible loss in quality! ImageOptim is glorious in its simplicity and ease of use. It's drag-and-drop heaven!

Absolutely fantastic script! It enabled me to instantly create 706 folders from a list of 706 domain names that I provided. Now I have a unique backup folder for each one of my 706 domains. What a time-saver!

Great text editor. HOWEVER, when I change the color of some text in a document, the document itself erroneously disappears! To make things worse, when I go to the "FILE --> OPEN RECENT" menu to re-open the file, the "Show Colors" popup (containing all of the little squares of different colors) still appears and will not go away. Other functions do not work properly at that point, either. I have contacted the developer and hope that this problem gets fixed.

You obviously have a comprehension problem. Don't blame me because you don't understand my extremely clear post.

I absolutely LOVE 1Password.

That said . . . .

What happened to the ability to have the 1Password icon in the system menu bar? Also, I no longer seem to to have the option to automatically populate the username when auto-saving logins. Please tell me that these things will be returning, as their absence has made 1Password basically useless to me.

Very simple, yet incredibly useful! Excellent work!

Why are you now included this separate .dmg with automatic A-Dock updates via the "MacUpdate Desktop" application?! I don't want or need this puzzle app installed every time I update A-Dock.

Version 5.0.7 has some bugs. Namely, I get the beachball of death during any update. Deleting the "macupdate" folder, as instructed by Macupdate Support, did not help.

Version 1.9.3 causes the text in the "View Source" window of Safari to be a bigger, hard-on-the-eyes font.

Does NOT work on 10.6.3! Please release an update.

Crashes every time I use Time Machine to recover a file. Specifically, the finder window becomes one with the desktop background, and cannot be moved.

Why are roughly half of my apps suddenly grayed-out, reading "No information available"? GraphicConverter has no information available? iChat? iTunes? Omniweb? I seriously doubt that.

I'd been using MacUpdate Desktop 5.0.4.for quite some time, with no problems.

I paid a couple of months ago. After installing the recent security update from Apple, the screen saver no longer works. A black screen appears, with a message stating that "Marine Aquarium 3 does not work with this version of Mac OS X." I need a working version for the latest version of OS x 10.6.2!

Anybody else having a constant problem with the toolbar disappearing?

I've noticed that when I "hide" MacUpdate Desktop or collapse it to the dock while it is performing an operation (checking for updates, installing, etc.), the operation freezes and I have to start the operation over.

Not OK. Fix it already, please. This is a paid program. It keeps turning itself off and displaying the "Could not start" nonsense.

It is not blocking any ads from or It may not be working altogether.
