    "Neat"

    March 15, 2004   |   By aprillovesmacs

    Version: Tidy 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I tried it on a few folders, it worked really well. I would have liked to try it on the desktop to shrink the distance between icons but the app doesn't give you the opportunity to turn off the Sort function; most people organise their desktops according to their own concepts of what should go where, not necessarily in any calculable way - so there really needs to be a way to turn "Sort by" off. Despite that complaint, I'm giving the app 5 stars because it does what it says, and does it very well.

    "OCD"

    March 15, 2004   |   By Xeater

    Version: Tidy 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I've always thought that with OS X, Apple wanted to keep the desktop less cluttered with aliases and such, and thus, the dock. I remember seeing guys running OS 9 with the entire desktop covered with aliases--want to open an app or document that's on the desktop while several apps are open? Tough luck. In OS X the desktop is meant to be a temporary repository of miscellaneous items, downloads for example. I think Apple has purposely left the options for viewing and arranging desktop icons relatively bare.

    Of course everyone has their own organizational styles, so I can see how this application would appeal to some users. I like my icons neatly arranged so I tried this app for kicks, and it's nice, but not worth anything, and $8 is just nuts. Anyone would pay $8 for this neat-freak app should instead see a shrink with regards to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and maybe get a script for Paxil. Seriously.

    "Better than Apple"

    March 15, 2004   |   By Uncle Asad

    Version: Tidy 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    While I wish Apple would let us adjust grid spacing--even just add a "tight" setting to go with their "wide" default, a la OS 8-9--that's never going to happen. So although I can't have Tidy just "shrink the grid" and not arrange files, it's still a definite improvement.
