Fails to launch, the eternal bouncing icon in the dock appears and force quit reveals that the application is not responding..

Free is nice, but working is better. Probably just some minor tweak needed.

Running 10.6.8
[Version 2.8.4]

Excellent Work! Worked first time, no glitches, no hiccups.

Now if only Cydia would catch up ;)

I wish to point out what's been pointed out before.

The screenshot shows a PowerPC CPU. The System Requirements on the other hand specify Intel. What's wrong with this picture?

Caveat Emptor!

MacUpdate-Warren I understand. This isn't a criticism of MacUpdate.

My point has more to do with the information the developer is putting out 'verbally' versus that which is represented pictorially. ;)

It's all about him using truth in advertising. He's marketing this as an intel ready CPU accelerator. At best it's a gui for renice that based on what people that have actually are willing to use this isn't nearly as useful.

If he has time to roll out 'updates' he should surely have a few seconds to snap a new screenshot of this application running on an Intel machine.

Of course that's just my opinion, based on my years of working with developers of commercial applications. Somehow they always made sure they kept screenshots current to the hardware the applications were meant to run on on their product pages.

So, does this mean the app will go freeware?

Having bought it for my iPad I was looking forward to an update that would be Universal/iPad.
But no, the company is bought out by Google before that happens.

At least let us have an OS X version for free to make us feel less used and abused.
(Of course I know that's as likely as snow in the Sahara in July)

p.s. I was a beta tester of one of Micromat's first products: MacEKG :P

Here's a, (found), technique for guarding against types of malware attacks using launch agent/daemons.;title

I'm still laughing at the screenshot of it running on a PPC mac. Seriously.

If you're going to try to get people to pay for this and you say it's been updated for Lion you'd think the screenshot would show it running on relatively current hardware

Upon launching this application under 10.6.8 on my Mac Pro system performance lags significantly.

With the application in the foreground or background simply moving the cursor becomes torturous.
