Version for macOS El Capitan (10.11) and higher. The app natively supports Macs running on Apple silicon, as well as older CPU architectures.
Previous versions can be downloaded in the Releases Section of our GitHub page.
The installation file comes in the form of a dmg file. Mac users will likely be familiar with this type of installer. Open the file and drag MoloVol into your applications folder.
When opening MoloVol for the first time, a warning may appear saying that the application is from an unknown developer (see image). This is because Apple requires a fee to registered as trusted developer. To get around the warning, you can navigate to your “Applications” folder and find the MoloVol executable. Right-click or control-click the executable and select “Open”. You will be prompted with a dialog box where you will need to select “Open” and add MoloVol as an exception. Apple’s support website provides a more detailed guide.
