"Painfully slow"

April 05, 2004  |  By TekWrtr

 |  Version: 3DOSX 2.0 Beta

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'm running a dual 867 G4 with a Gig of RAM. Clicking on a favorite that takes me 5 palettes deep takes about 90-120 seconds to render. Selecting the root of the drive then takes another 30-60 seconds to render the "tunneling" effect to get to the main platter. Opening another platter? Forget about it I was waiting for the thing to draw for well over 2 inutes when I quit the app.

Also, there should be an easy way to get to the main platter when only 1 platter is open, and <b>not</b> by using the menu. A single platter so completely occupies the interface as to make it unusable.

I remember trying this app quite a while back (first release maybe?). This is not an improvement on that earlier iteration.

The last version I had was better than this. If anything it's changed for the worse. Cool idea though, just wish it was working better.

"Bizarrely daft"

April 03, 2004  |  By Martin Turner--2008

 |  Version: 3DOSX 2.0 Beta

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is surely the most bizarrely daft application I've ever downloaded. This is not really a 3d finder - it's a nested set of 2 dimensional spaces viewed from an oblique angle.

The idea of 3d file management is intrinsically a good one. But there are two concepts which are confused here. There is the logical 3d of a spreadsheet system like Excel, or the multi-dimensions of a relational database like Filemaker Pro. Then there is perspective display, which can be used to create the impression of 3d space visually.

There is a great prize waiting for whoever it is who can marry up relationality with a display type that makes sense of it to the user. This would take us truly into Neuromancer territory. Unfortunately, this application offers a confusing perspective approach, but doesn't sort out the underlying logical problem. And it's also slow and ugly.
