I use my Atari ST to do essays on, simply because I'm too distracted on my iMac, so labelling floppies is important to me.
This app isn't too bad, but there are some places where the dev has slipped up. Just little things, really, like the colour picker not changing any colours at all, and the quit option in the menu says "Quit NewApplication...". Certainly not much worth paying for.
What really ruins this promising sounding app is that it doesn't even label correctly; I can type the title and it all appears correctly, but then, if I type anything in any of the other boxes it pushes everything up a line, so the title appears further up the disk than it should do. There is a work around, where you can change the font size of the other labels down to ten, then it seems to look presentable. The point is though that I shouldn't need to change the font size whenever I want things to look tidy enough.
Speaking of tidy; the interface is *mauled*! The current label slider makes the window about twice as large as it needs to be. The buttons for Font, Calender and Colour (which doesn't do anything) are huge and really should be push buttons rather than round bevel buttons. As a developer myself, I can see why NiteOwl have made this software, but they needed to be more careful.
So, all in all, I give this app a generous 3 stars, simply because it's helped me label my Atari disks, barely. That, and it's probably the only one out there.
Thank you for this program and ignore the negative comments. I am forced to work with Floppies so I use an external Lacie Floppy Drive and this is just what I need. A fantastic app. Please consider updating it to include other types of Floppy media.
If they only had a version for 5.25 floppy media! Seriously, who is still using floppies? Talk about producing for a niche market.
Is this a late April Fools joke?
Apple's iMac without a floppy disk drive was released in 1998. This program is about 10 years too late... although 10 years ago it wouldn't've run os OS X!!!
NiteOwl.... Maybe they only develop software in the middle of the night. Their 2.2 meg program won't even fit on floppy.
What's a floppy disk ?
Damn...I'm still using K7 tape to backup my hard disk
and maybe some support for "labeling" pen drives?
Wow! This is just what I needed. I'm hoping we'll get support for 5 1/4" and 8" floppies in the next version.
Hold on..I'm updating the Quadra 800.. To Mac OSX 10.2.9..I'm sure this will work, then..
