"Extremely useful. Been very stable for me."

February 12, 2008  |  By fredfass

 |  Version: You Control 1.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I use this app a lot every day. With the Apple Menu crippled as an application launcher I use You Control's "File System" module to create an organized file list that allows me to navigate through all of my folders -- just like the original Apple Menu. I also use the clock / calendar module to show both date and time at a glance, something that apparently was beyond the capabilities of Apple's programmers. The Mail module allows me to quickly scan my email inbox without bringing Mail to the front. Overall, one of my favorite programs.

"Not ready for release"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Installed, launched, worked fine for a couple of hours, hung opening a menu, force-quit engine, now engine will not load at all. This update isn't ready yet.

Kudos to the company who picked this up for continuing what is a fine product, but gotta get it up and crystal solid or it's effort wasted guys.

"Credit where credit is due"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
YouControl has certainly improved and many bugs have been fixed. Finally it's usable for me, and again it's part of my login items. I don't use the News Reader and Stocks modules.
With the modules I'm using, it works fine under 10.4.11, Dual G5 PPC 2GHz.

I don't understand your comment, Groucho6:
"Kudos to the company who picked this up for continuing what is a fine product..."
As far as I can tell the product is a You Software product. Hasn't this been the case for the past 4 years?

"Why so many updates and no real new improvements"

January 06, 2008  |  By petervrolix

 |  Version: You Control 1.6 b6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Well, it's a nice piece of software but so many updates for so long and no real addon's. I wish they listen to the customers and start adding on more modules.
A bit expensive at this point in time.

"B is for buggy"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I really think this is a great app. It's smaller footprint and better calendar make it far more usable (for me) than Butler. The fact that it has seizures on my MBP makes it useless to me though.

Hopefully an update will fix it.

"What's the problem? This is a great product!"

October 10, 2006  |  By oceansailing

 |  Version: You Control 1.4.1 b2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Have used You Control for years. It's one of my favorite additons to the Mac OS. Couldn't do without it. Never ever had a problem. Now to the beta. Yes it has a few problems. But that's why it's a beta! It's not a final. I have all the confidence in the world that when this beta comes out in it's final version, it too, like all the prior versions of the program, will be great. I've recommended this software to many friends. They all love it.

"agree... on the beta anyway..."

Summary

Yep: the beta sucks. Crashes under 10.4.8; no news reader; configure crashes... pretty bad. I trashed it...

and went to their website for plain old 1.4... their current non-beta release. It runs just fine.

"I gave it a chance... and it crashed."

October 06, 2006  |  By Sidhartha

 |  Version: You Control 1.4.1 b2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Looking at some of the more recent feedback I decided to download You Control and give it a try. I currently use Butler, which seems to do a lot of the same stuff as You Control (but Butler is for free!). However, if You Control was that much better I would buy it...

So, Day 1... and it crashes/locks up within 5 minutes of use. Literally clicking on a menu bar item of You Control locked it up on my MBP.

Tried a few times and the same thing happened.

It got dragged to AppZapper pretty quickly after that!!! Shame.

"You Control works great"

Summary

I have never had any problems with this software.
Don't believe negative hype.
The new version also has less of a system load...
which was small before the update.
