Frequently Asked Questions

What version of Mac OS do I need?
MacTracks requires Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite or newer to run. This is because MacTracks uses WKWebView to wrap around 8tracks.com, which was only released in Mac OS X 10.10.
Why is it free?
It's not guaranteed that MacTracks is going to work tomorrow. MacTracks is just a wrapper application around 8tracks.com, with a little extra JavaScript injected to let MacTracks control the music and give you track info notifications. That being so, a change to 8tracks.com could cause MacTracks to break any time in the future.
Why can't I log in with my Facebook or Google account?
Currently, logging into 8tracks using your Facebook or Google account from within MacTracks is unsupported, and no future support for this feature is planned. To use MacTracks with a Google or Facebook authenticated 8tracks account, you must first log into 8tracks.com in Safari (it must be Safari), then re-launch MacTracks.
Why are there ads?
MacTracks is just a wrapper application around 8tracks.com, so you get the same ads that you would get if you just went to 8tracks.com in your browser.
