"Finally a working 3.0 release for OS X"

July 01, 2004  |  By ed.bindels_dotmac

 |  Version: XNap 3.0-pre1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I use OS X Panther 10.3.4 on my PowerBook Titanium 500Mhz. I am a happy fan of XNap 2 for a long time. The first 3.0 releases did not work at all at my system. I decided to give this release a chance. After going through the setup procedure (I might have skipped it the first time - Mac users are used to click and run applications); installing, updating and starting the plug-inns (OpenNap & LimeWire) AND â?? IT WORKS!!! It even seems to have solved the problem of logging off at servers; in 2.5 the server thought I was still logged in after a restart (User with this name is already logged in...). The search 'Text' window is sometime not very responsive (slow). The program gave some error messages (wich I send back) but seems to be stable. It finds lots of files and I downloaded several without problems. Keep up the good work!

IRC 1.2.1/LimeWire 1.1.4/News 0.2.0/OpenNap 3.0.1/Stats 1.0.1/Video Info 1.1.0

"Still buggy"

December 16, 2003  |  By DrColossus

 |  Version: XNap 3.0b5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Getting better but still has major problems. Choosing the wrong look and feel will render it unusable... why are they there? Running a previous version will screw you over too. Some big interface problems, particularly in the search pane. Maybe next release...

"I ain't no rocket scientist so...."

October 29, 2003  |  By g3user1usa

 |  Version: XNap 3.0b4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
...this version is not for me. For a full version ya gotta download all the friggin plug-ins. I never got the gIFT to work. The icons in the click-on menu were invisible on my machine, so I turned them off. It works no better than the 2.5 pre I was using and seems to be more confusing to set up. So far, I definitely don't like this 3.0 version. I want it to be ready to run with one download. For me, it's back to 2.5 which is far simpler to use with just the OpenNap network. I'll use acqlite for Gnut and Poisoned for the rest. It's a beta, so I got no beef. It still downloads files from OpenNap which is fine. It just seems way more complicated than Poisoned for my taste. I really like XNap, but I don't recommend this version.

"Completely unusable"

October 15, 2003  |  By Giorgio Boccalari

 |  Version: XNap 3.0b3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The wizard starts up but nothing else happens. The only visible button is "Cancel": one clic and the app quits.
This is not even a beta! It could be an alfa pre-pre-pre-pre-pre release.
Better stick with the 2.5 pre 3.

"Freezes my machine"

August 11, 2003  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: XNap 2.5r2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This app causes my machine to freeze up completely.

It's unfortunate, because otherwise, this app has allowed me to get some pretty rare and precious files, that few people are interested in.

But the constant freezing makes it a real pain in the arse.

I'm using Mac OS X 10.2.6, on a Dual Processor 450 MHz G4. I wonder if the multi-processing aspect of the app is part of the problem. Are people with single-processor machines having this difficulty?

"The best Mac p2p client"

August 04, 2003  |  By Robert G. Serafini

 |  Version: XNap 2.5r2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have used them all. Acquisition, Poisoned and Drumbeat are solid performers and mlDonkey reigns supreme for huge files. But after a period of using the other good clients, XNap feels like the best. XNap allows direct browsing of other XNap computers - most Windows clients require traversing a server. And the clincher is that transfers from XNap Macs seem consistently faster and more certain than from other clients. The developers could take interface cues from Acquisition: there is too much information that cannot be tweaked for improved performance and I would be happy to not see it. This revision fixes some flakiness in the last version. This is a great app.

"Xnap freezes my machine"

July 10, 2003  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: XNap 2.5r2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Since I've installed Xnap, I've been experiencing freezes occasionally when I've been running it.

These freezes only occur when Xnap is running, and I am quite certain that it is Xnap that is causing this.

I'm using a Dual G4 450, with a cable modem, and Mac OS X 10.2.6.

Is anyone else experiencing trouble?

What's new in version 2.4pre3
This release is mainly of interest to Windows and OS/2 users since it should make uploading on these platforms possible again. (This was actually broken in all versions after 2.3.) Apart from this critical bugfix this release only contains updates to the Japanese and the Dutch translation.
