I'm confused. I have an application that I love called Desktop Tidy, from Light Pillar Apps. Version 1.0. This application, DeskTopTidy seems to do the same thing, but behaves differently and is from AlphaSoft. They will run concurrently. Are they the same application? I much prefer the older one, since it runs as a menubar item instead of a dock item. And it has more preferences. Please clarify.

@Loehman DesktopTidy and Desktop Tidy are two different apps, maybe I should change the name so it won't cause feature confession.

Yes, you should rename it. I thought Desktop Tidy had gone into version 2.0.

You should REALLY change the name of this app, not just change "Desktop" to "DestTop". That just doesn't cut it.

How about Clean Desk? The MU site doesn't list anything with that name.

@Dana Sutton it looks like changing the name won't be an option :( Because a lot of our users won't be able to update the app, and a lot of the download links would be broken.

Nice idea but really needs to offer more control as opposed to a complete sweep of the Desktop.

I did not stick with it long enough to give a fair review so my only other comment is with respect to the ugly nag screen upon quitting. To place a "Donation Ware" pop-up that attempts to require clicking it to dismiss it in order to quit the app completely discourages me from any further use of the app.

Make it clear up-front that you encourage donations to reward you for your work and time.

@Wile-E thanks for your suggestions, I was planning to add a feature to make exceptions, but it was giving me problems. I hope that I can release it in a feature update :)

@Wile-E I have great news! I have added a feature to add exceptions. I can send you a beta version to test it out :). Please email me from my website if you're interested.
