    "Essential add-on for Mac Spaces; not too customizable"

    October 11, 2011  |   By topher_hunt

    Version: SpaceSuit 1.1

    Pros

    Very easy to install, change settings, and use. The interface is simply the right-click menu of the dock icon; there is no preferences window to find. Add images by moving to the desired space then dragging the desired image file over the SpaceSuit dock icon. With a different desktop image for each Space, now it becomes much easier to keep track of which space you are in, and to give a different meaning or functional role to each space.
    I would not be able to use Mac workspaces in any organized way without this feature.

    Cons

    Startup seems slower than I would expect.
    I wish there were more options available - for example, disabling the Growl notifications would be a nice option...

    "Nicely done and a couple suggestions"

    January 28, 2009  |   By summerstormpictures

    Version: SpaceSuit 1.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I don't know why Apple hasn't implemented this little feature, so kudos to someone for finally putting one together that works. Something tells me Snow Leopard might find this capability.

    My unsolicited suggestions:

    *Create a menu bar accessible drop-down that can more or less replace the Apple/Spaces one that includes the preferences only accessible from the dock item now. By the way, I had no idea they were there--which is why I suggest the menu bar item. I had no idea I could rename each individual space.

    *On that same note, allow for the ''hiding'' of the dock icon--basically, like some other utilities, allow for menu bar + dock, menu bar only, and dock only.

    *Perhaps allow for the space title to appear on each space/desktop or next to the menu bar item if you decide to create it.

    *Allow for patterns in addition to images--this of course means you will have to add the ability to repeat the pattern along with the stretch to fill and other ''fitting'' items.

    Look forward to adding this to my little list of ''absolute must have'' free utilites for the Mac.
