Due to the nature of UU, I doubt it will ever be ported to Mac. BobaFett doesn't even own a Mac.

I've been getting this question more often. The reason why Ultra Utility is not available for linux or mac is not because I'm lazy or because I don't have a mac myself. It's because of limitations in the design of unix-based operating systems, which includes Mac OS.

See, for Ultra Utility to operate, it requires to integrate itself into Jedi Academy's engine, thereby gaining access to information, the ability to control it and alter it, which is a vital component of Ultra Utility and mandatory for most of UU's features.

In order to do this, UU needs to manipulate the Jedi Academy process to allow integration, something which can be done on Windows operating systems without too much of a problem, but is technically impossible to do on unix-based systems. As such, it is very unlikely Ultra Utility will ever come out for mac. And even if it does, it would have a significantly reduced feature set.
