"Since when did a Cadillac start to pass for a HUD?"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The ability to program doth not an Interaction Designer make.
I?m sure it?s just me. I?m simply not one of those users savvy enough to leverage a HUD that requires a second display to accommodate it's size. My GOD! I could deploy the whole of Africa as a task HUD and manage to save more room that this bit jerky!
The sizing options under the application's preferences are great for a laugh! I mean seriously, this is what there is:
"High?" "Wide?" What the hell is that supposed to mean to me!? Could these options be any more ambiguous and altogether worthless!? What ever happened to clicking and dragging on a window to resize it?
Most of the Pluto Menubar preferences don?t really offer anything that can be seen as ?preferred.? Either they hardly offer any real choice at all or they're so ambiguous you have to waste your time experimenting to figure out what they are.
Thankfully my gigantic Pluto HUD doesn?t remember the last position I had it opened to on the display. I love constantly fidgeting with stupid little things right in the middle of my work!
Are developers that out of touch today that it's too far beyond their comprehension to hire Interaction Designers (IxD) these days? If nothing else, then at the very least they ought to try and wrangle up their own little focus groups; preferably not their own families and friends either. I'm ticked I has to waste my time futzing with this thing because the developer is too cheap to farm out the usability portion. What a waste of money too.
