FlyAKite

CNET Editors' review

This freeware application computes detailed flight data for a kite, but its complexity doesn't seem appropriate for such a fun activity. FlyAKite has an unfriendly interface with buttons to configure and calculate data, but offers little guidance on getting started. The program has a confusing abundance of parameters that are more suited to a mathematician than a general hobbyist. FlyAKite computes flight data based on measurements such as string length, tension, and angle and wind factors. The data can be plotted in unappealing graphs and saved to a text file. FlyAKite has taken an enjoyable pastime and turned it into a dry theoretical model. This program isn't for the novice, especially the math-challenged, and has little appeal for other kite-flying aficionados.

    "Clear crisp display-well you know microsoft didnt make it"

    October 13, 2006  |   By knock_out_uk2002

    Version: FlyAKite 2.0.2112

    Pros

    Read cons first.

    after removing the program and using system restore i just couldnt get use to not having that layout so i decided to create a new system restore point and try again. This time installed hardly anything, but i did install the cursor pack, wallpapers login screen and folder settings, ie mac styled folders, yellow green red min,max,close option and all that. I have never owned a mac, never really used a mac, but i do admire the clariety of the layout although sometimes confusing the colour scheme makes it work. I also installed objectdock. This makes my mac styled theme complete with a few added touches i use alfaclock to replace the windows clock, moved the taskbar to the top and run object dock at the bottom, using auto hide. SO far no major flaws, netscape runs and so do the apps that didnt work last time do now, but sometimes the text in menus and options doesnt fit or display might just be me. Would love some Linux themed desktops to be released, if anyone knows of any, desktop themes not the actual operating system contact me via email at:

    knock_out_uk2002@msn.com

    Cons

    I got this from a pc magazine, i had a few apps with mac skins downloaded my ad-aware being one of them. Liking the layout i gave it a go, went the whole hog and installed everything, mistake. At first i loved it nice layout clean, but i found a few apps were crashing or just loading/working netscape 8.1.2 being one of them, add that had all my passwords etc. Decide to use system restore, failed twice manage to get it done eventually in safemode on the third try. Now read Pros.

    "You Have an option to mess with all system files...Use wisely."

    April 10, 2006  |   By jssshashi

    Version: FlyAKite 2.0.2112

    Pros

    Mac look alike ... Never used a mac , but looks and sounds good.

    Cons

    Eats significant resources.(yeah all do)

    Be careful when you try to patch system files. I personally recommend not to , if you can.

    I patched , and had a improper uninstall...(I ctrl-alt -ended it since it look like hung)

    So teh system files were half patched , and The help / SYSTEM RESTORE stopped working.

    YEah system restore did not work. so did IE, or add remove programs.

    I had to Reinstall My whole OS+ applicatioons spending 2-3 days to get it back to normal.

    (2-3 days for backup -> format -> windows install -> Network -> updates -> and then my softwares and my data ....)

    Have firefox handy... As i did when IE did not work.
