  • Same problem as iMovie

    This application has the same problem as iMovie has when your laptop is connected to an external monitor with the lid closed. It crashes everytime with that scenario. If you open the lid, launch the app and then close the lid again… you are in business. Clearly using some of the same underlying kit somerwhere. Maybe you can help Apple actually fix this problem.
  • Not Bad. Not As Great As It Could Be And I Wonder Why?

    I debated downloading this app. A lot of mediocre reviews. But then…I read an update from the developer that made it seem like the one major complaint about this app had been updated — and that is the size of the scroll bar itself. Yes, you can adjust the size of the scrollbar, but you cannot stretch it to the total width of your desktop. This is a major problem. The scrollbar, in essence, is tiny. The develpper needs to allow the scrollbar to extend across the entire length of any display. Additionally, another problem is that only one news story appears at a time in the scroll window. Perhaps the reason why it is so tiny. Why the developer couldn’t create a real news ticker that displays several news stories across the entire span of the scroll bar is beyond me. Appearance wise, this is a really nice ticker. It could be the most phenomenal news ticker available in the Mac App Store — that is, if the developer pays attention to these complaints and addresses them. Wish the deveipper would put a little more work into what he/she started and make this a really great ticker. In the meantime, it’s a useful app, but downloading it will make you wish it was so much more. Let’s hope for an update.
  • Useful and has some options to customize

    much better compared to another ticker i downloaded earlier. Here you can choose the soruce of the news, and the stories load up quickly. very useful for a desktop. Happy so far.
  • More space.

    It would definitely be nicer if you could slow down the ticker further, and/or be able to widen it all the way across the screen. I do like the simplicity and the price. Advanced users probably should look at more expensive apps.
  • Good, but could be improved!

    This app has to be the most reliable and available news ticker for the mac to date. You would think with today's technology and advancements news tickers would be a dime a dozen! But, no, they aren't. This is the best functioning ticker app for the mac next to "Universal Ticker," which is an awesome ticker for the mac, even much better than this one, but it constantly crashes. So, I decided to purchase this app instead. I also see it has been a while since this app has an update and I hope that there might be one again soon. Some future recommendations for this app: *Change font/sizes. *Allow color for fonts and box background; even full transparency of box. *Option for placement within the Menu Bar itself. *Option to inscrease the box both horiziontally and vertically. *RSS option for latest news (breaking news) only that cycles continuously until after a certain time (ex, 5, 10, 15, or 20 min.) as this would alleviate the constant repitiveness of cycling through headlines that are old and dated.
  • Great concept, some changes needed.

    I like this program, there are some modifications I would make, however, and I write them in order of priority. 1. Slow down the scroll, even on the "slow" mode it's awful fast. If the ticker were wider, it'd be okay. But the ticker is narrow to begin with. 2. Allow users to customize the font, window color, etc. 3. Perhaps allow the ticker to be expanded more, both horizontally and vertically. 4. Keep finding news sources. Decent app, worth the $0.99.. hope to see some good updates in the future.

  • Points for effort

    Love the concept, nice and clean. It just needs to be a real ticker: - Stream the news one after the other (i.e. the begining of the next headline is showing as the current is leaving the screen) - Go all the way accross the screen (resizable) - Custom background (opacity)
  • nice app
