For what it does, this app is awesome! There, I said it. :-)
When I first started Brush Pilot it automatically found all my brushes across two separate drives. This might not be surprising but what did surprise me is how fast it did it.
It is extremely fast, at least in demo mode where it will only display 5 brushes. Personally I would instead prefer a fully functional but time limited demo in order to see how it handles larger brush libraries. However, it still seems to load the entire brush library even though it only will display 5 brushes.
Brush Pilot is a bit light on the feature side of things but we're only at 1.0.x so I'm sure features will be added as time passes.
Some things I would like to see:
* Show brush size - Handy to know if a brush is 345 px or if it is 2178 px.
* Optional column view in the left sidebar - I use subfolders in my main brush folder and it would make it easier to switch between brush libraries if I could use column view.
* Bookmarks/Favorites - Would be nice if it was possible to bookmark a brush library. Quite handy if you have many libraries. It Would really ROCK if it was possible to bookmark individual brushes within a library.
* Taging - The ability to add tags to libraries or even to individual brushes within a gallery.
* Search - A must if you have loooooads of brushes ;-)
What would make me a truly happy camper is if Brush Pilot eventually went from just a brush viewer to a brush viewer/organizer/editor. I have wished for quite some time for better and more powerful brush editing tools. Not making actual brushes mind you but instead creating and editing brush libraries.
I find the Present Manager in Photoshop to be very basic as well as "clunky". It misses features like variable preview size (Brush Pilot already has this), sorting (name/tag/size/age etc.), drag/drop support.
I realize however that this might be outside the scope of Brush Pilot but a boy can always dream, can't he? ;-)
