Google's Music Manager version 1.0 on Mac OS 10.5.8 fails to connect to the Google Music Service with an error message of "Couldn't connect to Google play. Check your Internet connection and try again."

It looks like it is related to bad certificates as the same problem happened on the Google Music Manager ( ), but I am not sure how to fix the problem on Mac OS 10.5.8.

Even with 4 GB of RAM this software is sluggish & bloated. Froze up several times. Features nice, bloat not.

Bought the triple suite for $39 and am working to catalog all of my collections. Would like more game centric focused features for gamepedia akin to dvdpedia which offers a menu for additional information on the current movie include bloopers, etc. Would be nice if gamepedia offered a similar menu. Also would like the ability to use plugins with the program to add functionality. Overall however, very easy to use and works well.

Great player that plays a lot of formats that Quicktime chokes on. Would like a more streamlined easy to use playlist so it could act as a replacement for iTunes, as iTunes playlist are great, but the compatibility isn't so great.

Glad that there are free options in view of Gamepedia. However, the interface is still very confusing. All I wanted to do was launch a game from the main screen and after searching sketchy documents online I couldn't figure it out - so I trashed it. Needs to have a more cohesive positive end user experience. I realize it is beta, however I hope in the future the application is more easy to use.

Excellent software. Easy to use. Hides so you set it, forget about it, and can still use it. Ideal for the older Bondi Blue macintosh keyboards which don't have volume controls.

Interesting concept at first, regret later. Needs ability to switch order of 'docks'. Slow to change docks. Froze my computer completely up. Needs serious work. Not a release, but more like beta.

Doesn't work properly for INTEL. Leaves application in dock. Interface needs work. Good concept, poor execution.

"The You Control: Tunes utility gives you full control over iTunes even when you are not in iTunes. You can set hot keys to control any or all of the iTunes controls including Next or Previous Track, Play, Pause and even the Volume."


Where and how do you set hot keys for play, pause, back and forward?

I have looked everywhere. Please make this more obvious for the end user.

More stable, but still annoying. When connecting an ipod shuffle generation 2, it brings up the following dialog, "Can't connect to the iTunes Store. Alert Message: "Cannot connect to the iTunes Store. An unknown error has occurred." Even after blocking the iTunes store in all of the iTunes preferences. The apple website offers no help on the matter:

It has refused to work under my computer's OS. It continues to tell me the drivers are not installed in the preferences, when they are installed from this installer. I am on 10.2, an ibook, 128 MB Ram, 800 MHZ.
