What are the licensing terms?

A Bartender license is for 1 user, for use on all their Macs.

Bartender is not working with an Application?

There are a few things that can cause this:

- Mac OSX has a bug we have reported that will prevent some apps working with Bartender after it has been installed, until the app not working is relaunched, or in some cases the mac is restarted. This will only be necessary after the first installation, after this all apps should work okay.

- The other cause can be if the application that is not working is sandboxed (from the Mac App Store) these apps are not allowed to access all locations on your system, and as such may not be able to access Bartender, the easiest way to fix this is to make sure Bartender is in /Applications/ and not in /USERNAME/Applications/.

After performing both of these steps all apps should then be working.

The trial ended early?

Before version 1.0.3, we had left our test trial period of 2 days in the code by mistake, we have just found this and release 1.0.3 to fix this. Simply download Bartender again and replace the one on your Mac and Bartender will continue to work as before.
