"DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS CRAPPLICATION !"

June 10, 2010  |  By Kudrabar

 |  Version: Instinctiv 0.9.4.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

THESE DEVELOPERS HAVE GONE OFF IN A TERRIBLY, TERRIBLY BAD DIRECTION, AND I FEAR IT'S THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF ALL THE FUN WE'VE HAD UP 'TILL NOW.

Instinctiv 9.4.7 (which hasn't been posted on VersionTracker.com yet but has on MacUpdate.com) is pretty, and the interface is slick, BUT IT RUNS YOUR CPU/GPU RAGGED AND CALLS OUT TO AT LEAST 43 DIFFERENT PLACES IN A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT COUNTRIES -- I'M NOT JOKING. After installing Instinctiv on my new Core i5 iMac and year-old Unibody Aluminum MacBook -- both with tons of RAM, are running Mac OS 10.6.3, and have recently been DiskWarrior-ed, etc. (so they were running in top form), EVERY TIME I RAN INSTINCTIV IT CONSTANTLY USED BETWEEN 30% AND 70% OF MY CPU/GPU (plus many, many peaks of 100%), AND LITTLE SNITCH 2.2.3 REPORTED A NEARLY CONSTANT CONNECTION WITH songkick.api.mashery.com AND NONSTOP CALLOUTS TO THE FOLLOWING LOCATIONS (it would have called out to many, many more, I'm sure, but after typing the addresses of the following 42 callouts, I began to cry and had to quit).

LITTLE SNITCH REPORTED THAT INSTINCTIV CALLED OUT TO:

ajax.googleapis.com, api.instinctiv.com, ws.audioscrobbler.com, images.uulyrics.com, static2.last.fm.edgesuite.net, static.rateyourmusic.com, img19.picoodle.com, covers.mp3panda.com, www.thecouchsessions.com, www.beatportal.com, www.canyouseethesunset.com, 1.bp.blogspot.com, pagesperso-orange.fr, toddsplanb.files.wordpress.com, shinlist.com, www.concertsinyourhome.com, i25.tinypic.com, www.israbox.com, www.the-fly.co.uk, www.progarchives.com, pic.ipicture.ru, i.ytimg.com, i11.photobucket.com, api.ning.com.edgesuite.net, www.ilike.com, themusic.fm, www.metalsucks.net, www.beat-boot-ique.co.uk, 2fm.rte.ie, mt4-prod.advance.net.edgesuite.net, verygood.com.au, www.hung-truong.com, c4.ac-images.myspacedn.com.edgesuite.net, www.365albumsayear.com, c3.ac-images.myspacedn.com.edgesuite.net, img524.imageshack.us, www.comfortcomes.com, i307.photobucket.com, www.informatik.uni-hanburg.de, www.pettingzoo.nl, discotecaxaranga.com, www.coversproject.com, blogs.kcrw.com, motortorque.askaprice.com, 211.115.79.143, img.noiset.com and www.chinadaily.cncssr.chinacache.net .......

INSTINCTIV IS NOT AN 'APPLICATION' AS WE HAVE COME TO KNOW THEM. AN APPLICATION IS, FOR THE MOST PART, SELF-CONTAINED AND DOESN'T NEED TO REACH OUT TO A HUNDRED DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO PULL ITSELF TOGETHER. NO, INSTINCTIV IS AN INTERNET BEHAVIOR AGGLOMERATING, REPORTING AND MARKETING SERVICE. SERIOUSLY, THERE'S NO REASON A MUSIC APP SHOULD CALLOUT TO OVER 42 DIFFERENT PLACES ON THE WEB -- NO REASON! I DON'T MEAN TO SOUND LIKE A PARANOID CONSPIRACY FREAK, BUT IF CORPORATIONS BEGIN TO BELIEVE THAT WE DON'T MIND SHARING WITH THEM EVERY SINGLE DETAIL OF OUR PRIVATE IDENTITIES (in addition to the aspects of self that we've already ceded to them), THEN THE FUN IS OVER.
