It's a poorly done REALbasic app. Considering the Finder has previews, and slideshow, and a much better interface...

I have to wonder, what's the point of this?

I am a REALbasic developer myself, this program doesn't have to be so shoddy. The developers just need to learn that using common interface paradigms is a GOOD thing.

Scrap all this custom stuff kids, yea it's nice you can draw a gradient on your window background, iTunes wasn't improved by it and neither is your app. Use a normal metal or aqua window.

There's no harm in a little programming exercise for the fun of it, just don't expect anyone else to be enamored with it. I went through the same "oh wow isn't it cool!" faze and had to discover the same thing, custom UI is bad, no one cares you coded it yourself, they just want it to work how it should.

At least the app didn't crash...

Very handy and feels pretty stable. But that said, even though it's free it needs a little work: It doesn't look like an OS X app and it won't cache the thumbnails it generates -- so moving between directories is hampered by the fact that the app has to regenerate the thumbnails every time. A cancel button that responds quickly is provided though.

This is a nice idea but it needs a lot of work.
for instance, it doesn't look 'mac' at all. And it doesn't behave mac.

Things that need to be done before I start using it:
- Drag and drop support: I can't drop a folder on the icon in the doc to see its contents. And I can't drop a folder on a window, I have to browse which is too much work.
- Menu's, I want menu's. If I want to browse to a folder I want that option to be under File>Open. Not somewhere in the window.
- To view a file fullscreen I want to dubble-click. One click means selecting something.
- Support for more filetypes. Tiff and PSD are a minimum, I could think of more that need to be added.

Once these things work I'll use it.
