I don't know what's wrong, but this app simply does not work. It just crashes a few seconds after opening. I would have preferred to have contacted the developer before submitting a review. However, I can't find a way to make contact with LittleFin.

I have the same problem as Mrtomato: the app version 1.0.5 simply isn't working (it crashes each time the app starts) and there's no way of contacting the developers. There's no support and the version 1.0.4 can't be found anywhere.

The developer has a support contact form on their web site here: http://littlefin.com/support/ . There is also a support email address on that page: support@littlefin.com .

Now, whether they will actually respond to requests...that I couldn't say. I did just use that form to send them a support request about the version 1.0.5 crash. We'll see if anything comes of it.

Following up: I got an email reply from the developer a little while ago, not long after I submitted the contact form. His reply was prompt and helpful. So at least currently, he is actively responding to support requests.

He said that he discontinued the app some time ago, which is why there is no download available on his site. The reason for the crashes appears to be StackSocial—they made changes to their feed that the app can't handle. He provided the following steps to fix the crash:

1. Turn WiFi off, and then launch the app.
2. Go to the app's preferences, then de-select the StackSocial option.
3. Turn WiFi back on, then relaunch the app.

This worked for me, and it runs just fine now.

Although MacUpdate lists version 1.0.4, the developer's website provides version 1.0.5. I was finally able to open DealAlert in Mountain Lion) with version 1.0.5

The developers website has replaced version 1.0.5 with the earlier version 1.0.4. Nevertheless, since I started having problems with version 1.0.5 and Mountain Lion, i reinstalled version 1.0.4 and it works OK now.

I was having the same issue. It appears to be a glitch with the update prompt, and no fix or redistributed update seems to exist. I managed to get around the issue by doing this: 1. Go to "Applications" and fine "DealAlert" (if you moved it there, otherwise wherever the .app is). 2. Right-click and click "Show Package Contents" (second from the top) on the context menu. 3. Navigate to "Contents/Library/LoginItems" 4. Double-click the "DealAlertHelperApp" .app file This appears to push around the update prompt and the app loads up fine. You can quit and then access it as normal without issue. So far it seems the update does not prompt again - so not sure if this will be a problem down the track - but for now, at least the app can be launched. Hope this helps :).

Heads-up: If you are running Default Folder X you must exclude DealAlert in Default Folder X's exclude preferences. System Preferences/Default Folder X/Settings (button)/Advanced/ If you do not do this DealAlert will crash upon starting up.
