Finally... a nomad client for the non-PC crowd!

I'd like to thank dennisj00 for his excellent work on this.

Very nice to see a Mac client, as I no longer have any Windoze machines.

Now, where is that iPad native client we were all promised????

You say that as if having more expensive hardware with less power, less choice of applications is a good thing.

I put Apple computers, Linux Boxes and Tablets in that category.

YMMV

BTW, running a Mac? What Antivirus are you using these days? Since Mac viruses are becoming more common you need one.
Remember when your kids were the TV set's remote control?

This is not the thread for this. Let's not go off track here.

Erm... Where did the player install to? When I ran the installer (after I set my security settings to allow applications from "Anywhere" to install, for users running 10.8) the application install completed but I cannot find the app anywhere on my hard drive.

Nice work (as always) on the 2nd Look.

It's good to have further expansion of the nomad client supported device list. Mac fans - enjoy.

For $50, you can pick mine up. I'm on the SW side of town.
