    "Great. but...."

    March 4, 2014  |   By DaDreamWizard


    Does almost everything very well. As an all-in-1 image browsing app it's hard to beat! Wonderous built in functions in an almost perfect and impressive browsing window.


    It has always had 1 image problem all version past and present. It cannot recognize certain 256x256 icons created by some of the best icon editors available to man. If the icon holds multiple sizes the issue still exists and has existed since it's inception. Yes, that long. How the programmers cannot know this is an incredible mind blower, as it's programmed so well and every other editor or viewer does not have this one single deal breaking issue.


    If you don't create or manipulate icons this program is top notch. The single flaw cost this 1 star. A shame as it has many excellent tools and is quite the browser.
