I am new here and just recently started to play online poker again. So, I'm way behind! Can anyone recommend any poker tools for mac/betonline? I was looking around and it doesn't seem like poker tracker works with BOL. I also tried to use ICMIZER but I don't know how to download my BOL hand history. I looked it up online and the instructions don't seem to match the mac version, that or I'm doing something wrong.
Thanks for any help you can offer!

If all else fail, you can always try using parallels or WINE.
DriveHUD works in BOL, its just that its a windows program.

***UPDATE*** I tried all today to put drive hud through Wine. Maybe I'm not good enough to understand it. I got it to kind of work but then realized that I needed to install betonline on wine as well. That seemed liked too much since I already had it on my mac. I deleted all that work and continued my search. I found iholdem indicator. It works for mac and betonline. I have been testing it out for an hour now and found it to be a little glitchy but seems to work for the most part. I will see where it takes me and hopefully it doesn't have too many other problems.
One problem I saw was that it froze a bet action from one player from a previous hand. It went away eventually but still weird. Another issue I have encountered was that at first it would automatically remove the HUD when I selected the table then brought it back when I click back on the side HUD panel. But now the hud just seems stuck and plastered to the table. I have to go into menu options just to turn it off and then back on. Wish that automatic on/off feature would come back.
If anyone has any other experience with iholdem indicator let me know.

*** 2ND UPDATE***
I've been using iholdem indicator for a day now. Here is my experience. I like the way it lays things out in their manual. They break down all the stats and even assign a player icon after 40 hands of tracking them. I like the hud and the customization of it but there are plenty of issues.
1) The hud loses track of players. If I am moved to another table in a tournament, my HUD stats move to a random position and everyone else's is thrown off as well. There is supposed to be a menu option that lets you rotate the hud but as I right click on it, it will not show those options and I can't move anything.
2) Support is borderline rude. With the bugs I was having with it, especially the HUD not being in the correct player positions, I reached out to support. They were quick to respond but it quickly went down hill from there. I sent the guy my screen shots of where I was right clicking to try to get the menu command that would rotate the hud to show.
(Sidenote: Here is a little about myself. I have been on a computer since the days of aol.com and earthlink.net. My job requires me to know how to work a computer both mac and pc and troubleshoot these machines.) Now that you know that, let me continue.
When it showed on his end with no issues, the support guy literally told me "...I'm not trying to offend you. But looks like you don't know how to "Right Click" on a Mac. Maybe you can google it... Thanks. "
As you can imagine I nearly flipped my ish. Also, when you start a sentence with "I'm not trying to offend you", we all know what is implied. Good gawd! I am literally on a trial of this product to see if I want to buy it. Instead of maybe assuming there's a bug in his program he instantly assumed I don't know how to use a computer. This is 2017, just about everyone in America and the rest of world, and especially online poker players, know how to use a computer.
Anyway, rant over.
Conclusion: iholdem indicator is the only tool for mac and BetOnline, as far as I was able to research online. Will I buy this? No! Maybe after the bugs have been fixed and after I have cooled down but I won't hold my breath for an update or a fix since support believes their program to be flawless. Oh well! Back to the drawing board.
Also if anyone knows of any other HUD for Betonline/MAC please let me know. Still looking.
