View Full Version : Applications that work in Lion so far

Does anyone know of a list anywhere of the applications that work partially, fully or not at all in Lion? If not, should we make one?

Here is what I've found so far

Doesn't Work
1Password safari extension (chrome works fine)
Parallels 6
Click to flash (safari extension)
Dropbox - There is a hack to get it to work but it crashes finder on login anyway apparently
iStat Menus Apparently this does work, anyone else?
WebKit Nightly Builds
JITouch Preference Pane

I haven't tried any other apps yet, just been playing with it for a few minutes. What has anyone else found? I doubt this is breaking the non-disclosure agreement although anyone know any different? It's not actually talking about the os, just other apps.

Well so far I've only opened them. The only issue I found was that when I opened InDesign, the top toolbar was transparent and nothing was there, but I just changed the workspace mode to Advanced, then back to Essentials and it all turned up again.

I'll be using Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for most of today, so if I find any other issues I'll post...

Almost all apps work as expected. So please not fill this thread with ten thousands programs that work, but instead the hundred programs that don't.

Dropbox was mentioned earlier. The devs have said they're investing it already, and until they come with a solution there is a fix described at http://37prime.wordpress.com/2011/02/24/using-dropbox-with-mac-os-x-lion/. I'm using Dropbox myself now on 10.7.

Twitter - constantly reappearing even when you hide the app or close the window

So far, there are a lot of applications that work perfectly well with Lion, but there are some that just don't work quite right. Let's make a list here.

I'll go first:
gfxcardstatus. initially I thought it worked fine, but manually switching doesn't work, nor does power-based switching. Not really surprising.

What else have you all found to not work?

Big one; Logic Pro Studio does not work at all. crashes on startup. Mainstage doesn't work, but tries to startup.

i'll throw in another one, however, I suspect this is not Lion-exclusive: I have Lion on a separate smaller partition, and Photoshop CS5 won't run since it's installed on my SL partition. However, other apps, like Twitterrific 4, Twitter for Mac, Flight Control run fine from Snow Leopard.

Basically, what you do is open Info.plist inside the application bundle, and change "Bundle Version" to 2.0 .

Yes, I love the new gestures, and I think it's really useful. However, there are some certain things I use with BTT everyday, such as 3 finger swipes up/down to switch tabs, 3 finger tap to be middle click, and the list goes on. Hope the BTT dev fixes it when Lion comes out this summer :)

Hi guys, I wanted to understand how come there is this much incompatibility issues on Lion with SL software.

Is it because Lion runs on 64bit? is it because some API have been deprecated or others haven't been implemented?

I know it's a beta but I thought the core of OS X is the same of SL.

PS: I'm not using a beta and I don't intend to, I am just curious and I'd like to understand.

It's most likely due to the library files that are missing from an install. Since you upgraded your Snow Leopard, it would have kept the previous Library folder. Therefore, any app that has an installer would work fine unlike the partitioned apps.

Yeah, installed Aperture onto the Lion Partition and it now works.
Would have tried it before but I knew I'd have to install over 300mb of updates ;-) ah well.. didn't take too long. :)
I'll install Photoshop too. Strange though, Dreamweaver worked without a hitch, just opening from the SL partition. Hmm :/

Seems like you got really lucky. So far nobody else has got it working. Even deleted all com files and didn't work. using old SL ones didn't work either.
EDIT:Workarounds are available now. http://bs87.com

I can't get iPhoto to work. I need to install the new update and the verification fails when getting it off Apple's site with Safari and Software Update won't install it either.
Just delete it and all the preferences for it in \library\application support\ and ~\library\application support\ and reinstall. should work with a fresh install.

Skype 5 keeps crashing, esp. when trying to video-chat. Video doesn't seem to work properly.
tried every version of Skype for mac and found that the newest crashes constantly but 5.0.0.6378 works ok. also noticed crashes happen more often during screen sharing or when using video to another Skype for mac user but not as often when other end is windows. could be coincidence though.

Yes, I love the new gestures, and I think it's really useful. However, there are some certain things I use with BTT everyday, such as 3 finger swipes up/down to switch tabs, 3 finger tap to be middle click, and the list goes on. Hope the BTT dev fixes it when Lion comes out this summer :)
BTT is working fine if you delete all associated files and start from scratch. DO NOT import a configuration. importing or using old settings breaks it for some reason. Emailed with developer and he is already compiling a list of bugs and going to get started asap so submit bugs to help out!

BetterTouchTool stops inertial scrolling in Lion.
delete all saved pref and start fresh. had this exact problem and redoing everything fixed it. not sure why.


does not work:
iPhoto 9.1.1

does behave badly:
lions fullscreen apps on multiple displays
see previous comment about completely reinstalling. should work. and I see issues with the lion fullscreen apps and multiple displays also.

Launchpad also seems to leave some deleted apps in the list. anybody know how launchpad populates?
EDIT:Shortcuts found. http://bs87.com

I have not gotten parallels 6 to work and had to switch to vmware :( kexts install correctly. guessing they are 32bit?
EDIT:Fix also available. http://bs87.com

I can use LogMeIn Ignition from my Android and iPod Touch to access my Lion install.

Also, if you are on a local network you should be able to use a vnc client(i tried realvnc and it worked) to access your computers using screen sharing(sharing tab in system preferences). You may even be able to set up a dyndns and port forwarding to access elsewhere but that is not very secure.

I use Chrome as my main browser, really only because its sync feature is so well implemented, particularly if you use multiple machines on different OSes etc.

However in Lion Chrome runs, but I cannot get chrome sync to work.Checking the preferences it says I am synced to the correct account and that the last sync was completed "just now" but none of my passwords/bookmarks/extensions etc have synced. I still have a browser that looks like a clean install.

Has anyone got this working in Lion?

(I am running the latest normal release, 9.0.597.107)

Edit
Managed to resolve the issue by deleting my Google sync data on the Google dashboard and then resyncing from another computer. Chrome in Lion then downloaded the info. Not sure what the cause was!

interesting. this happens because lion now requires a physical keyboard button press or mouse click to wake the screen.

hopefully there will be a fix from either logmein or apple for the final version.

if you set up a screen saver and leave your screen on it seems to work ok. definitely not a great solution but can get you up and running for now.

Yea just set your screensaver to how long you want and then in energy saver just set display sleep to never.

i assume you already have computer sleep set to never but if you don't that would need to be set to never also.

Please, has someone tested this?

Fruit Menu

http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/fruitmenu

Fruit Menu is a haxie that gives you the ability to customize the Apple Menu and contextual menus. Using a visual editor you can edit the contents of the menus to suit your needs and taste. FruitMenu will also display the contents of the FruitMenu Items folder inside of your Library folder, launch applications and shell scripts from the Apple Menu and contextual menus, to allow easy file navigation and launching. To make the haxie completely flexible and customizable, you can assign hotkeys to particular menu items.

Little Snitch worked somewhat. I had it installed on Snow Leopard, upgrading to Lion kept it "live" but wouldn't allow for configuring.

Toast Titanium 11 works aside from Disc Cover 3.

Otherwise I've had no issues with any applications so far.

I recently installed Lion, but Apps don't auto resume after I quit them or restart the computer. When I restart it only opens the app back up in dosnt save where I last was.

EDIT: other Apps like text edit work, but not Safari. is this normal?

EDIT 2: It seems like it only works in safari and preview and others when I quit by right clicking on the dock and selecting quit ( it dosnt work from the menu bar or cmd q)

smcFanControl does not work. Cyberduck does work.

SMC FanControl works just fine on my 2010 MBP i7. Have no issues with it.

Things works
Elgato video capture software/hardware works

iPhoto buggy and crashes occasionally
Aperture even more buggy

Mail crashes rarely but still does
iCal will not quit and stay that way. Filling logs with re-spawn messages

All Angry Birds games (including Rio) seem OK

GFXcardStatus works on mine

Had to remove Little Snitch AND Intego Virus due to errors in logs



I'll update if I come across anymore ups/downs

Cubase LE4 -- works, but I haven't tested it extensively.

USB Overdrive -- works in demo mode (unregistered). The program launches and custom [mouse] settings can be created. HOWEVER, upon a reboot of the system, USB Overdrive does not launch automatically. It has to be "manually restarted" by clicking on its icon in System Preferences, after which it seems fully functional again.

Features like the Resume, Autosave, and Versions have support from the Lion OS but must still be implemented in the applications. So all applications will need upgrades to use this feature. This is why I expect a new iWork released coincident with Lion.

Good news: I was able to successfully remove all of the ARD 3.5 files (plist, bom, etc.) and re-install 3.4.

Bad news: Although it remembers preferences (lists, searches) it doesn't remember the serial number/registration...

Basic permissions repairing failed to correct that (I haven't dug too far down to suss the particular files(s) related) but it does work great, once open.

I realize this removes the 3.5 advance features, but being able to do regular work while testing the 10.7 environment has proven useful...

After upgrading my home machine to Lion I found that Click2Flash and AdBlocker didn't work. Well, then I realized that the new Safari just didn't have them correctly installed. To get them to work I just went to the extensions and added them back in. The latest versions were downloaded and both now work perfectly.

So maybe by default all extensions for Safari are automatically removed?

Any word on iLife '08? I will be moving to Aperture and then soon to FCPX for video, (I am very happy about how Apple reduced the price of both of them:), I used to think that it was a dream that I could ever afford pro software at home) but I think the learning curve is to high on these for the rest of the users in my household. I will of course be testing lion fully on a separate hard drive before migrating all the Macs in the house.

MouseZoom not working for me with Lion GM.

I spent a few hours zeroing in on MouseZoom as causing bizarre behaviour of the mouse or touchpad within a VMWare virtual machines running Win7 or WinXP. I even tried an updated version of MouseZoom and it also failed to work in a VMWare virtual machine. VMWare do not a Lion-specific version available, but except for the MouseZoom issue, VMWare Fusion seems to work OK once MouseZoom is removed.

Boot into safe mode, launch Activity Monitor, quit iStatLocalDaemon, download and launch latest version of iStat3. Reboot into normal mode, job done
