    "Very useful program, lousy <br /> company behaviour"

    July 26, 2014   |   By vetsense

    Version: Fences 2.13

    Pros

    easy to use and customize, neatly keeps desktop arranged to my specifications

    Cons

    none for the program itself, though the company acted shabbily in misdirecting users regarding the new release. Won't buy any other Stardock products.

    Summary

    This used to be a free program, and when they decided to start charging for it, they misdirected users into updating to the new release without telling them that it would cost them to use it -- and by they time they found out, they couldn't downgrade to the earlier, free version. What they should have done is offered the free version as a low-tech few-featured version, and given everyone the option of upgrading for more bells and whistles. But they didn't - they did a bait-and-switch, and it's deceitful.

    That said, I couldn't find a product that did the same thing, although I tried. I really would have rather given my money to another company that behaved better, but I decided to bite the bullet and pay for the new Fences, since it really does a great job and I love the organization it allows me. I won't buy any other Stardock program and I'll switch if anyone develops a similar tool.
