  1. Downloaded for Mac!

    Amazing product, you definitely made a good job!

    I have to admit it’s still pretty buggy (but i know, it’s a pre beta). If it’s ok i can surely send you the error messages i receive, maybe it could help you just a little.

    One thing i can tell you now is that i receive error messages everytime i click on the menu bar. So it’s kind of annoying to test the software
    but i’m sure you’ll make it. This program is amazing, thank you

    Let me know

  2. Hi jake

    Can you give us the error message you get and details how to repeat? Several such errors were fixed since 5.1.8, but it’d be good that you didn’t find something different.
