So I have googled my app, and every day i seem to find a new review.

and the app seems to get either one of three reactions.
1> "It's free, has glitches, is beta, lets hope it gets better"
2> "Free version is basic, Pro mode costs, best stuff is in Pro"
3> "Not worth having unless you have Pro, Developer seems greedy"

Well... ok.  For an app that costs $1.25 (less than $1.40 due to taxes added in?) yeah, best features will be in Pro version.  However, looking for suggestions.

What should I make available in the Basic as far as "extras", aka, give-away effects?  Metro Tile "Skew" effect as mouse over has been made a free Basic effect, but any this else?  Make Full screen mode Free?

(I am debating a Big tile/Small tile toggle option that is "pro"/paid only... so it'n not like i am giving the milk for free...  just give one option for a better option to be paid)

Also, what would you like to see in the app?  suggestions?
  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: Kittens wrestle on my floor
  • Reading: to much Syntax
  • Watching: Limitless
  • Playing: Diablo III and Minecraft
  • Eating: A LOT of Chocolate...
  • Drinking: Water. Always Water!

What i woulkd really like to see is a exclude list. And the ability to save it. Like "unpin" from the win8 startscreen.
Paid version= Can be saved
Free version= Can only be saved for the current session.
I have no clue if this is possible or how much work it is. So if it is a dumb suggestion, simply forget it.:)

so you would like an "exclude this app" list? say that when it loads up all menus as you click, it looks for app son the list, and if it finds it, it wont make a tile for it?

Thats a great idea! I may set it up as Right-Click on an icon = add to Exclude list... or something like that.

It would be great if you can add this.I don't use some of the listed stuff. So why making a useless tile?

on less thing to render = faster list to show. I agree. Will try as hard as i can to get it in before the friday update. Should only take about an hour to add in... If only .Net did not change file opening and saving from how it was in VB6...

I think that with my update i have made it somewhat faster, getting the icons is now much faster, working on a better and faster directory list sub...

Thanks!

Do You utilize threading for it?

no, there was not very much, if any at all, speed gain from threading.
Of course, i may have done it wrong... but VS did not complain...

It's not about speed(it's side gain), but responsiveness and scalability.
