CNET Editors' review
ThGCube is a desktop enhancement that lets you create a slideshow of images displayed in a cube or other animated format. It's a nice idea and has a surprising number of features, but in practice we weren't too crazy about it.
ThGCube offers six options for displaying images: the cube, a star shape, horizontal and vertical wheels, and horizontal and vertical lines. Some of these are kind of hard to describe, but all involve animated 3D displays of your images. Our first beef with ThGCube was the large watermark displayed on the unregistered version. We have nothing against trial versions of software, but we do feel that there are plenty of programs that do what ThGCube does for free. We also found it strange that ThGCube only displays a small number of images in the selected directory; if you're using the cube display, for example, the program will keep showing the same six images over and over again, no matter how many images are in the directory you've chosen. Images only change when you refresh them manually. We did like that ThGCube lets users adjust the size of the display, the speed of the movement, and the image transparency. There's no Help file, but most of ThGCube's features can be figured out by exploring the program's menu. Overall, ThGCube wasn't awful, but we don't necessarily think it's worth spending money on to get rid of the watermark.
ThGCube comes as a ZIP file. It installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.
With ThGCube you can watch your own picture on a rotating on the desktop. The Size, the position and the speed of rotation can be set. All few seconds a new picture will be integrated in the cube. The directory of the picture can be freely chosen.
What's new in this version: Version 1.1.4 includes bug loading images.
