A side note about free softwares : FOSS, when not backed up by a corporation or an organization, are primarily done by benevolent people who want tools for themselves or are intellectually interested by some aspect of the project. If they have a mac, they do a tool for a mac. If they have Windows, they do a tool for Windows, etc. They listen to the user base, they can sometimes be nice and implement a feature they ask but they're not a corporation, they do not need to please their consumers and, as a result, they do not spend thousands of hours for something they don't need to. So, no need to come and ask for a version for IPhones, Macs, Solaris or any other fancy thing. It won't happen unless some dev needs it and decides he will spend countless of hours to do it. ;=)

Now, you can use Wine to make EveMon runs on Mac. :=P

Guys, you're asking us to write and maintain a whole another application while :
* we are already short of hands for EVEMon
* we may not even have a mac (I don't, at least) and are therefore not interested at all in doing such a job nor have the skills for it (Cocoa ? What's that ?).


It won't happen. Ever. We're not a commercial editor to whom you can ask anything you want.

Now, maybe someone will write such an app for mac but it won't be EVEMon unless he wants to call it EVEMon. But the EVEMon team won't do that unless some Mac-fanboy (I use the word free of any pejorative intention) decides to join the team with that idea in mind.

And asking it again and again won't change anything to that harsh reality. You should better start to learn coding. ;)

Please see the thread titled "HowTo: Install EVEMon and EFT in Darwin", this is the closest we are going to get to a version of EVEMon on Mac OS X.

Even with Wine we are guessing in the dark as far as I know none of the active EVEMon developers have a Mac.
