Hi, I seem to have run into a bit of a problem and I was hoping I might be able to get some advice here. Here's the situation that I'm in... A few weeks ago I stumbled across a really great Pandora client called Pyrcast. It had a really sleek, beautiful desktop interface and managed to bypass the Pandora ads, as well as allowing me to scrub through the songs. All really great features and well worth the $4.99 I spent on it. Then, Pandora issued a takedown request saying that Pyrcast was creating a "fragmented user experience" and Pyrcast is no longer allowed to sell their app. Unfortunately, I never downloaded or installed it to my MacBook and I really want it on there, but I can't seem to get it to work. I'm signed in to the same Mac App Store account, but when I copy the app to that computer, it simply won't open. I was wondering if anyone knew any tricks or workarounds so I can keep using it.

Thanks!

Hi,
It looks like you won't be able to download the app. This is because apple signs the apps that you download in the mac app store, just like in the iOS store. It may have been possible to install the app if you had downloaded it before but it looks like you may be stuck.

You may want to either contact apple as they should give you a refund, or alternitavely contact the app developers themselves which hopefully will provide you with a download link (if they are nice!) this is the email address; support@pyrcastapp.com

Hope this helps and good luck,

Jack
