"Extremely useful, but has some annoying bugs"
Version: iconStiX 2.3.1
I use this every day all day to create customized folders on my Mac with varying shapes and images, some of which I create myself, some of which I get from photos I have taken, and many of which employ images that I have found on the web, and many of which combine all of the foregoing elements.
(1) The program quits frequently and when it restarts, the folders or other images that I have created are frequently fuzzy until I reboot the computer. This does not interfere much with the functionality of the program (unless it cuts out in the middle of creating a folder, which it sometimes does), but the annoyance of having to look at fuzzy images means that I probably reboot my computer 6 or 7 times a day when I would otherwise have no reason at all to reboot. (2) The other main problem is that the folders don't "travel" well. That is to say, when I email them to anybody (including myself) the images are usually stripped out when the email is received. I really wish I knew how to make my newly customized folders more "robust", so that would not happen.
Overall, I love this software. However, I am increasingly bothered by the buggy qualities that I have outlined above. It is noteworthy that this buginess has persisted over several versions and I experience on several different machines on which I have used it. It is very inexpensive, and given the amount that I use it, I would gladly pay more for it, if Trollin (or anybody else) could get these annoying bugs to go away.
