Editors' Review

+

ShadowFX allows you to create custom drop shadow effects for your Windows 8 windows. The effect adds depth and a layer of aesthetic choice to your Windows 8 machine that the default settings do not.

Pros

Choose from numerous options easily: It's quick and easy to install and test any new shadows offered. The effects are simple but offer a nice layer of depth that is not included in the operating system by default.

Personalize the layout with built-in options: There are a number of ways to personalize these options with features built into the software. You can choose from standard or colored drop shadows that are freely available in the base set of ten downloads, or you can download from the developer's online library.

Cons

Limited: The tool only offers ten shadows to start. There are few other options to choose from, and you can't upgrade the features currently.

Bottom Line

ShadowFX is a fun upgrade to your Windows 8 windows. It's not a feature-deep visual upgrade to your operating system, but it does offer a nice way to make your windows stand out.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of ShadowFX 1.0. The trial version is limited to 30 days.
