      "Not recommended for OS9"

      March 01, 2005   |   By gmanno

      Version: iSwipe 1.7.2

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      If you are currently using a prior version on OS9 I recommend you NOT download any 1.7 version (except the beta versions which worked for me). This app no longer functions in OS9, since 1.7.1 and including this 1.7.2. There is a Yahoo newsgroup of iSwipe users which has chronicalled the difficulties. I found upon trying 1.7.2 that my prior versions are now not functioning either! I get an error message that they have expired and the app quits.

      "Indispensible but still needs a lot of work"

      September 22, 2004   |   By gmanno

      Version: iSwipe 1.7b2

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      For file sharing on the Mac this has been indispensible for me, but the app remains unstable, causing my machine to crash generally every 30 to 60 minutes (plus or minus, sometimes less and sometimes more). Quite a few actions still puzzling or not well functioning. Emails to developer go unanswered despite fact that I am a longtime user and have donated. I dont know if this is planned as an interactive beta development or not. A lot of ground unanswered in the documentation also.

      "Very promising"

      November 22, 2003   |   By Lee613

      Version: iSwipe 1.5

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I've been using this sort of thing on Mac & PC for just over a year now and I must say that iSwipe is one of the best. The programme is still quite unstable but the returns are very impressive. It seems to be able to find lots of stuff and get good down load speed but unlike others of it's ilk it can crash after a short period unlike say Mldonkey (Mac) or Shareaza (PC) but it's still beta. Let hope it stay in development. What a great name for a software company (perhaps you need to come from 60-70s England to appreciate this?).

      "Seems to work ok"

      Summary

      Running OS9.2.2 using PPC version of iSwipe. No trouble, got the thing up and working in no time. Downloaded a few files, seems to work just fine. Search options are not good (no multiple searches allowed AFAIK) but I'll probably keep this next to LimeWire in the future.

      Summary

      ...readme*
      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      Well, as I just said, it won't freeze your mac if you bother to read the readme... Which has been telling OS9 users for the last three months to use the classic version of the App, as the current compiler he's using seems to be causing this problem in the OS X version when run on any non-X System.
      This app has been getting better in various ways. Even though, while it may slow the heck our of your internet connection, it is providing connection to a very large amount of different fileservers and sharing system types. Some of this will take processing power...

      "Developer Does Not Listen To You"

      June 29, 2003   |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

      Version: iSwipe 1.4b3

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      The developer does not respond or acknowledge any e-mails from me. There have been minor longstanding issues in this product that seem to be ignored over and over again. The most annoying problem, is the preview window. It cannot be resized and does not resize to fit the content. What a joke. This program is instable and slow as well and has looked increasingly ugly on Mac OS 9.

      Features are good, and so is the price, but with such a lousy developer, these things don't matter.
