They're now developing apps for iPhone and Android. No mention of this app on their site. Pity.

Does BumpTop use Flash? My MBP goes up to 98 degrees celsius with version. Maybe I'm doing something wrong ...

After following this project since a few years ago, I was very happy to see a OSX version finally come out. I eagerly started testing it to see if I could replace the default desktop but I immediately encountered several issues which are impeding me to switch. I hope the following observations are helpful: • Font sizes are too big and there is too much text truncation - by default font sizes should be the same as the Finder and it'd be nice being able to customize fonts. • Stacks expanded view is too small - the default size is a 3x3 icon grid which is too small and one needs to do a lot of scrolling. Possible solution: make the window bigger by default and make it resizable. • Files on a wall can't be moved to desktop as a selection - when selecting files from the wall and trying to move them to the desktop, only 1 file moves, the rest stay on wall. Solution: Allow moving selections to desktop. • Expanded stacks don't auto-close when launching files or opening folders - on a expanded stack when opening a folder, the stack doesn't auto-close like OSX stacks. Solution: stacks should always auto-close where appropriate to reduce clutter. • New Folders aren't placed on the right spot: When right-clicking and creating a New Folder, the folder gets created in the middle of the screen. That's counter-intuitive in a spacial environment. OSX had this issue and Apple fixed it in Leopard. The folder should be created on the spot where it was clicked with mouse or touch input. • No Spring-loaded folders - this is an excellent OSX feature that is not present on bumptop. The lack of this feature hinders productivity for many OSX users. • No formatting on notes - notes can't be formatted to have bigger fonts or colors. • Stacks can't be arranged by date or name. Request: Allow arranging stacks by name, date, size etc. • No icon grids - the lack of icon grids contribute to the "messy" look of bumptop. It'd be nice if there were grids. • No labels - Labels in OSX boost usability since one can tag and prioritize items with color. It'd be useful if bumptop had labels. Other comments, kudos: • Rearranging icons inside a stack spatially: awesome. • Big and small icons on the desktop are great, productivity boost. • Walls: excellent, placing notes there is great, also a clipboard may be nice too, productivity boost. These are my first impressions, I hope the project keeps improving and some of these observations can be taken into account. I'm rating it as 4 stars for the premise of the concept even though it's unfinished and in early stages of development. It has a looooooooong way to go to become usable, but the potential is there.

It runs kind of slowly on my PowerMac G5 Dual 2.3GHz. That said, I like the idea but a couple of things about the UI could be modernized. Why must I click the mouse each time I want to make the icon bigger or smaller? Couldn't I change the size using a drag action on a little handle, or with a slider that would respond to scroll wheel input, or something that lets me bind a keystroke to it, or some sort of clickless interface such as in http://dontclick.it ? Also John Gruber is right. It could and should be a complete FInder replacement. Whenever you open a folder, it could replace the whole BumpTop, as you are 'inside' it. Each folder could have different wallpaper (Floorpaper?). Also, a key to make the mouse 'sticky' such as in the utility Zooom would be great for quickly organizing files. I do like the nonsquare icon selection tool. Nice. Keep up the good work.

Suggestion: Include a 'filing cabinet' so that newbies will eventually figure out that it is far more productive to 'file' their info (i.e. files) in a filing cabinet (i.e. directory) with sub-directories/folders... than it is to 'lay' or 'pin' their files on the floor or walls. This way they can advance to a more organized and faster system so as to accomplish their daily tasks.

Having played with this a little more (despite the flashing but I reported hearlier -- memory leak?), given the bug reports I've read elsewhere I'm not even sure I would call it a beta version rather than a "proof of concept" mockup. Given which, I have trouble with the developers' asking for money for the Pro version. The 3-D concept is an interesting one. It's an alternative set of metaphors meant to replace the traditional Mac "destop" ones: files, folders, trash can, calculator, all the other stuff you'd find in an office cubicle. Which is cute and clever: it dramaticalliy reminds us that back in the 1980's Apple's designers could have used a different set of metaphors than the one they chose. What I don't see, however, is exactly how being different = being superior or offering advantages lacking in the present ones. The developers don't just need to clean up their act in terms of bugs, as evidently they do, they need to make a convincing case that their alternative is a better one than what we now have. And, speaking just for myself, I'm afraid I need a lot of help here.

I agree with RonL, looks very gimmicky and newbie. I have a very orderly desktop with folders arranged neatly in hierarchical order for all of my clients and all of my work, BumpTop would undo all of that. But thats not to say it wouldn't be very helpful to a person that needs order done for them (ie: a slob/newbie). It might also be very cool as far as the slick-factor. But not having tried this, so I can't say for sure, this type of thing usually wreaks havoc on your OS...that might not matter/happen if you aren't using your computer as a work station, what I mean is the more you have on your computer (software-wise), the more likely there may be some sort of conflict (just speaking of my experiences here), and the more you rely on your computer for work, the more you avoid that type of thing. I also have a work flow and this software would interfere. The multi-touch trackpad feature looks very cool though.

On my iMac it displays but it flashes off and on once a second. Needed to launch Application Monitor to quit it, because I couldn't figure any otehr way to get out of it (admittedly, hadn't read any documentation yet, I was saving that for next). Promptly trashed it. I have nothing against the concept, it's intriguing, but I can't live with the present implementation.

"...no business would ever use this" Meh...you're probably right, however I really do not think it is targeted at businesses.

Great for someone that does not want to advance to a new paradigm. What do I mean? I give tech support and the standard way of thinking when someone is new to computers is to think of their desktop as a floor with lots of papers and folders 'piled' around on it. However... and this a very big however... you can imagine that you will finally come to the point where you have so many 'papers' on your 'floor' that you have a problem finding what you are looking for. And yes... even if you 'pile' them up into stacks. For beginners this is another way of laying out all of your papers out on your floor. The paradigm (i.e. mind set) that I suggest one finally matures to is to create folders/directories in list order. This is analogous to what businesses do with filing cabinets. Of course the initial ostensible down-side of this is that one must actually label/name their files in such a way that makes it easy to organize them. Then instead of having all of your paperwork strewn all over your floor and walls... you have them organized in filing cabinets. Bottom-line: Great app for those that have not... or do not want to advance to a business level... but no business would ever use this.

This is an impressive application that really gets things right. In only one day, I don't just "use" it -- I enjoy using it. The piles really helps to organize everything and actually forces me to clean up my mess. The concept of the walls is tremendous as I get to tack on my most immediate projects. I'm sure there will be some things that I'd like to see in updates, but this really is such a nicer way of dealing with a desktop. Kudos!

hey there at bumptop, awesome application for the mac so far i´ve tested. there`s only one thing i`d really like to do: i would like to choose dynamically folders which i can bumtop! eg.: i have a folder for each project i am working on. so i would like to view those folders in a bumtop perspective which remembers its state when i open another folder or quit the application. is this kinda possible allready? do you have plans to develop this feature? just switching to another folder for bumptoppin' would be a nice intermediate step. would be great if you`d reply here.
