The Status of My Apps
Hi Everyone. I’ve been getting quite a few emails lately about my apps (or some features in my apps not working) as a result of people upgrading to Mountain Lion, so this is just a small update on the status of my projects. In general, everything is running normally, but there are a few things you should know about.
Please note that to use any of my apps, you must set your Gatekeeper settings to allow applications downloaded from anywhere to run on your Mac. For more information on how to configure Gatekeeper, see this Apple knowledge base article.
MacDropAny is still actively supported for syncing folders on your computer with Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive. MacDropAny runs on Mountain Lion for me without any troubles, with the exception that the right-click command in Finder does not seem to work properly.
MacDropUpdate is still actively supported for automatically updating Dropbox.app to the latest forum build. Please note that the Dropbox forums are (as of 11 August 2012) currently offline for maintenance, and as MacDropUpdate uses information from these forums to know when a new version is available, you will an error message will appear saying that MacDropUpdate can’t connect to the Dropbox forums. Please don’t be alarmed; this is to be expected. Once the forums come back online, MacDropUpdate should resume normal functionality. Notwithstanding the Dropbox forums being down, MacDropUpdate runs on Mountain Lion for me without any troubles.
Broomstick is still actively supported for hiding and rearranging icons in your Mac menubar. I apologise that I haven’t published any updates with new icon hiding functionality lately, but I hope to get back to this soon. Broomstick runs on Mountain Lion for me without any troubles.
All of my Alfred Extensions are still actively supported, and I have tested them all on Mountain Lion; they work without any troubles.
From the apps on my Goodies page, both MacPips and Shiboleet seem to work fine on Mountain Lion, and both are still supported.
So, to conclude, all of my apps (for the most part) are running as per normal on Mountain Lion. As I’ve just moved country, I’ve not had much time recently to work on my apps, but please rest assured that I’m still here, and I’ll try my best to fix any bugs as and when they arise.
Creating and maintaining all of these apps does take a considerable amount of my time, so if you find any of them particularly useful, please consider making a donation to help support future development.
