When switching apps using Command+Tab between two other apps, the Finder repeatedly becomes the last used app even when it wasn't. Disabling FlyingWindows stops this behavior and Command+Tab works as expected again. Please fix this misfeature as FlyingWindows will have to stay unused until then.

Found a new bug unfortunately although Spaces _might_ be the one responsible here... When using Spaces together with the single-app/hide mode in FlyingWindows, something makes the cmd+tab-switcher to default regardless to Finder as the last used app. This makes it necessary to keep pressing twice on tab, which defeats the possibility of a quick flick on cmd+tab to return to the last used app. Although in regard to Spaces, disable FlyingWindows and everything is back to "normal" with the tab-switcher. i.e. quickly flick between the two last used apps. Sorry if this is confusing... yet so is figuring out why I kept ending up in Finder all the time without having the mouse cursor anywhere near the tab-switcher. o/t, the tab-switcher feature is actually something that other OS does better as in OS X this feature is clearly "over-thought". As it is prominently a keyboard feature, Apple could at least give us the option of making it disregard the mouse but no. :/ For now it is either Spaces OR FlyingWindows. Thank you.

It would be very nice to see the "Hide App" function respect the excluded apps list. That's the only thing missing imho.

I downloaded this application on my Macbook and it works great except one issue, When any folder is open Flying Windows minimizes the folder but does not unminimize that window and opens new finder window and finally dock ends up with lots of windows. I hope Developer comes up with fixes this issue.

This is a great little utility. I like the option for window minimization as opposed to just being able to hide the app. Thanks a lot for making this free.
