"major bugs are a real shame"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This thing about this app is that, although it looks very promising and useful, the Leopard beta (1.3 b5) completely fails to cut the mustard because of major bugs.
The hot keys you set to cycle between the desktops regularly stop working. You can get them working again by selecting a different desktop from the menubar menu, but that defeats the point of hot keys.
The pictures associated with each desktop regularly get mixed up - for instance, one desktop which had its own picture will suddenly show the picture of a different desktop, so you have to reset it. The same happens with the desktop icons. All in all the 'remembering' features don't work reliably at all.
The "identify current desktop" command very often fails to show anything.
It's not entirely clear how the app interacts with Spaces.
So there are at the moment major issues with this non-freeware beta software.
It would be nice if Apple extend their Spaces feature to accommodate some of this app's features.
