I have used this program for several months and registered it almost immediately. It does not have a huge range of options, but it does one thing that I really want, which is to have lots of different groups of applications. I know many launchers allow you to select from a list or type in a few letters and then they find the app you want. But I can't remember the names of all the apps I have, so they don't work for me!

Fidget reminds me of an old classic app called Apollo, which was great. I read here that there are lots of other launchers which work better or have more features. Well, Fidget does exactly what I want and I'm very happy with it. Incidentally, the new version didn't work properly when I downloaded it so I sent an email to the developer last night. When I got up this morning a new working verison was waiting for me. So, great service too.

This application works flawlessly. It isn't a matter of this being similar to other utilities of this kind, it's a question of whether this program does what it proports to do, and if it does it well.

It does.

We might all try being just a bit more positive in this one shot we get at life - rather than always running to share with others, everything that we find wrong in it.

Actually, it IS a matter of it being very similar to other products. That's often part of the point of bothering to review an item... to guide fellow users toward other products of superior quality, better features, and higher value.

Quite frankly, this product has been done MANY times by other developers, and... in my opinion... better by other developers... like Butler for instance... it's free (donate if you can), has many more features and a great developer.

As for trying to be more "positive"... I dunno... how is being positive with nothing to support that position any more useful than being negative? Some reviews are going to be negative because there really isn't a whole lot positive to say about an app that does less at $15 than it's competition that is free.

ANOTHER menu extra that holds items?

Do we really need to 30th program that does this?

Especially one that costs $15?

Folks, save your money and grab any of the 20 other programs that do the same thing for free.

Thank-you for saying this so I don't need to. But I will second your opinion.

If you feel this program is unnecessary, don't use it.

I like it-and I bought it.

I tried the other 20, and this one works better than all the others for me. But that's just me, and I'm not you.

Hey "Jimmey",
Your thoughts should have been posted as a comment and not a "review".
Why give this talented author a bad review for his application when you're really not reviewing its features, etc., but commenting on another matter entirely.
