YoWindow for Mac OS [BETA] is available!

Post by par » Mon Aug 09, 2010 7:43 pm

Hey, Mac people, you have it!

You may download the latest Mac OS build here.
http://yowindow.com/mac_beta.html

We expect this version to run on Mac OS 10.5 and higher.
Please let us know if it is running well on your Mac and please report your Mac OS version.

YoWindow was ported to Mac OS in a very short term by our Mac guru - Dima.
Please give him kudos :)

I want to stress just in case, this is a BETA version only.
That means the software is working, but we still need time to polish it to perfection untl the official release.

We collect all known problems on Mac OS in this topic
http://yowindow.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1329

Your bug reports, questions and compliments are very welcome in our new forum.

Nice! Works JUST like my Windows laptop version. One minor thing missing:

I cannot use the arrow keys on my keyboard (left & right) to go forward or back 10 minutes, nor does Enter bring me to the current time. I can drag the time bar indicator. Up or down does not navigate between my locations. Note: my keyboard is the iMac aluminum keyboard, with 19 function keys, the arrow keys, and the numeric keypad.

Other than that, I have seen nothing wrong.

Good job guys!!

Update: It appears that I had to let YoWindow run as a screensaver first before the arrow keys and Enter key work. It seems to be okay today.

Please give Dima an extra portion of dessert. ;)

Hello Par,

Thanks for the note (and thanks loads for the email letting me know the Mac version is up).

I tried to update from the beta. I got a Page Not Found screen on the link:

Not a big deal. The arrow keys work sometimes and not at others, but they are not critical. I will check back for an update tomorrow.

Job well done.
Aaron :-)

Sorry, the link was broken, I have fixed it.
In case the keys problem still occures in the new build, can you catch under what conditions the error occures?

Hi!

I've tested beta7 recently on my MacMini 2006 with Tiger 10.4.11

Unfortunately the installer worked well but the installed programm crashed at the startup. There was just one "boing" in the dock, after that the icon disappeared. :(

Furthermore the uninstaller reads: "Wrong version of OSX" :cry:

Dear Jerry, thanks for the reply, please send a screen-shot of YoWindow.
What is your Mac OS version?
Can you let us know the version of Flash player installed on your system? (Right-click inside YoWindow, you will see the version in the pop-up menu)

Friends, does anyone else experience this problem on Mac?
