This version doesn’t work

Reviews on previous versions are good, so I gave the new version, 1.2.2, a go. Unfortunately it does not work on my 2010 Macbook running Yosemite. When I open the app it displays a menu with an install button, which I select. Then the next time I open the app it displays a menu asking me if I want to unistall it. I have downloaded the app twice and the same thing happened both times. I have reported the problem to the developers, but they have not responded.

Don’t waste your time on this until the develper releases a new version.

Works but seems abandoned

The application does work for me on El Capitan. However, a key reason to use it over the many alternatives were native icons, ie. icons that don't look out of place in Finder's toolbar. The version here in the App Store does not have native icons. The one currently on the developer's website (v2.3) has icons for versions of OS X up to Yosemite, but not for El Capitan, which came out nearly a year ago. So, I don't see what sets this apart from other solutions. And some of the alternatives are open source.

Still going strong in Sierra

I had a couple of false starts where it didn’t find the %path% but after opening in the Application Folder it sorted its self out.
Great tool and something that Apple should have added years ago.
