Many of us used to love the now defunct program, Sticky Windows. Many will also remember (perhaps fondly) the Mac classic's ability to turn windows into tabs. We've lacked anything truly capable along these lines for years, and I find more...

This is exactly the program I've been looking for. I like being able to have all my frequently used folders at my fingertip instead of having to go back to the Finder every time. It's a great time-saver.

After setting up the windows for various folders with “Popup Windows” I shut down for the day. When I restarted some of the folders I had set up were gone & 3 of the folders had duplicate windows!! I have written them & look forward to a solution. I’m runing 10.9.2 on an iMac

Sorry @Fishscale but I did look at what it said on the tin and it kind of promises a lot but then is a sort of very cut down drag thing, or a launcher or something, its not good value, it does not have a lot of features, ooh then we get in app purchases...that IAP is bleeding us dry.
I know there will be some that love it, but I am looking for innovation. I did think it was perhaps a little unfair so i have put it up to 2 stars

Works as advertised.

The price is a little high compared to other apps, but it works very well.

To be recommended.

Can't see the value.

OK this is not sticky windows or really similar, what it does is take a folder and create a tab from it. It does not allow you to drag a window to the screen edge and turn it to a tab. It a medium term organisation tool, that tabs folder to the screen edge.

Your right about the folder being turned into the tab, but the developer's video and description clearly state so, not like they are advertising it as something it's not...

so the 1 /12 review is founded on the fact that it's not a sticky windows replacement? Which they never said it was? I don't own the app but it seems like those who need a folder tabbed quickly via drag and drop seem to like it.

Did you watch the video before purchase or even buy the app? Just saying... one person's review about a false comparison does not diminish the app's worth or utility, at least imo.

Many of us used to love the now defunct program, Sticky Windows. Many will also remember (perhaps fondly) the Mac classic's ability to turn windows into tabs. We've lacked anything truly capable along these lines for years, and I find Popup Window to be the most promising program to come along that can do these things for us. I bit the bullet and spent the $3 on the program. It works, it's stable, and it has good customization. I'd like to be able to adjust the speed at which the window appears, but that's fairly minor. Overall, if you like this kind of thing, I suspect you won't be disappointed. I'm on 10.8.3, MBPR.
