"Easy to use and works as advertised.(WORKS IN VISTA 64)"

January 14, 2014  |  By bfbo

 |  Version: InstantStorm 2.0

Pros

Easy to use, and has many good customizing options for creating Screensavers.
Works with Flash! - one of the best ways to create Screensavers with rich content.
Free to use - even for commercial use!
Create Executables or Standalone (.scr)'s.

Cons

Absolutely need a Flash (.swf) file, and the free Adobe Flash Player. So either you find a Flash file you like, or make one using your own Flash editing program. There are no other ways to make a Screensaver.
There are no built-in Flash tools either, and you can't use (.flv) files.

Summary

If you have the means to create your own Flash (.swf) files, and don't mind taking some time and effort into creating usable Screensavers out of them, with the help of InstantStorm, then this Program is for you.

"Didn't Work On Vista 64 Bit"

May 14, 2012  |  By Leahm37

 |  Version: InstantStorm 2.0

Pros

Seemed like it could be a great program!

Cons

I'll never know because I couldn't get it to work on my machine with Vista 64 bit, it just locks up, bummer.

Summary

Vista users, stay away.., stay very far away!

"Always Wanted to Do This!"

October 22, 2010  |  By legerema

 |  Version: InstantStorm 2.0

Pros

Sleek, easy-to-use, and can convert all those .swf files I created into screensavers!

The screensavers won't go away in the desktop settings box after I had deleted them.

"did not work on Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit o.s."

July 26, 2010  |  By AAS2010degree

 |  Version: InstantStorm 2.0

Pros

I do not know, some very neat screensavers require this "extra" bit of software.

Cons

did not work on Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit o.s. I could not find any real help information either. Either it works for you or their is nothing else to do about it.

"Great working, small program!"

June 20, 2010  |  By donnyjrmail

 |  Version: InstantStorm 2.0

Pros

Not only converts .swf to .scr for a screen saver but puts it in an install package so that you don't have to know where the OS keeps them. After installing your screen saver it shows up in the menu list of screen savers!

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

Works fast and easy to use makes me like this program and leaves me nothing to dislike.

"Fast and functional, but would like more choices."

August 26, 2009  |  By Zenbob96

 |  Version: InstantStorm 1.5.3

Pros

It is fast, functional and creates a compact, fully useable screensaver, but as far as I can tell, only in SWF format.

Cons

Only SWF format output. Does not accept all graphic formats or sizes despite suggesting that it does. Minor quibble, but this functionality could be improved. Does not include any ability to insert sound or music. Sad.

Summary

I think this program has a lot of potential. It already does most functions very well, very quickly and has an interface that is relatively user friendly. However, it should allow for sound insertion, better tailoring of various image formats and resolutions (rather than simply kicking the image out of the set) as well as an easier method of moving the order of the graphics and I would like to see a randomize function for playback. All in all, I would suggest trying this program out for yourself to see if it will satisfy your requirements. Some people will love it, some may be less thrilled. But, I hope the developers keep working on it and receive enough support to deliver improved versions. That is why reviews and feedback are so important to the programmer/developer. As a former developer of software, I used to solicit responses by email/mail, and in forums, but most people were either so nice "it's wonderful!" or non-committal, that we had to drag the real details out of them. "I'd like to do this, but cannot" sort of responses that allow programmers to revise and improve the product in ways the users really desire. So, please do comment back to the developers and urge them to keep working on the product, and thank them for their efforts and generosity. I do appreciate the hard work and time that was put into this application.

"Excellent tool for the creative person"

March 16, 2008  |  By sephkane

 |  Version: InstantStorm 1.5.3

Pros

I love how easily Instant Storm lets you make screensavers. There are so many options to customize the installation process for your screensaver. You can visually edit every page of the installation interface, turning it into your own imaginative baby. And being able to use .SWF files gives anyone with imagination the ability to make remarkable and unique screensavers for friends or even for sale.

Cons

I can't think of anything wrong with this program. Download it. Use it to it's (and your) fullest potential.
