3rd Party Tiger Updates


It’s time to query the community of TAB readers. If you’re anything like me you’re thinking ahead 1 week, to Tiger. With that comes the nagging feeling that there will be some issues with broken 3rd party shareware apps scattered among my Applications folder.

I’ve begun scouring the internet (ok, an occasional Google search) for news of OS X shareware updates in preparation for Tiger. Unfortunately the results thus far have been somewhat low.

So I’m starting a list here. I’ll encourage you to add yours in the comments section so we all have a spot to reference come Upgrade Day (so we know what we can upgrade, and what to turn off to avoid headaches until there’s an update). Thanks for your help everyone. Let’s make this thread a great resource for all our fellow OS X Tiger users!

(Obviously pretty much all the largely used apps out there will get an update sooner or later, but here are the ones that are either out now, or have mentioned updates for shortly after Tiger ships.)

Yeah, sorry, I admit to being an ignorant American. :) Sorry for the mistake.
But those Canadians aren’t THAT bad… ;) So mistaking me for a canuck is fine by me. And most of us speak Spanish (it seems )- so that’s ok. :D

jean-paul buquet

Gee, guys, this is embarrassing! Confuse Belgium with Switzerland, German with French (and Flemish, not German, is spoken in Belgium anyway), come on! Maybe I’ll start confusing you with Canada, and think you all speak Spanish. (Just kidding!)


Toast will probably need an update, a few functions seem to be wounded.

nick santilli

Ronald – if I could speak [I think that’s] German, that would be fantastic! :) Care to translate it for us?

(I suppose I could use a translation tool, but they’re generally innaccurate)


Nick, Pithhelmet will install under 10.4, but when Safari is launched, a dialog says “Pithhelmet has not been tested with this version of Safari (412). As a precaution, this plugin has not been loaded.”


Micromat’s Tech Tool Pro will be Tiger compatible next revision as well.


I have word from Chonos that StickyBrain and F10 Studio will be coming out with updates for Tiger soon. I assume Organizer will follow suit.

A Developer I know says Office 2004 seems to work OK with Tiger, in spite of claims from MS that it is not and that a patch will be released.

Nick Santilli

bb – the 10.3.9 release contains Safari 1.3 which Pith Helmet was not working with. The update to Pith Helmet works for Safari 1.3

The word is (around mac forums) that 1.3 is basically 2.0 without the RSS fuinctionality available.


Where is Pithhelmet for Safari 2.0? The developer’s page makes no reference to it, and the only versions available are for 10.3.9 and below.


The Current version of Little Snitch does not work with Tiger, there is a beta available on the developers website.

NetMonitor also has a new version.
