One app that gives me access to all of my cloud storage accounts using a consistent interface, and lets me transfer files between them is a brilliant idea. This app shows promise but feels incomplete and lacks polish.

Overall:
The overall design is too bold and clunky. Everything is much too large.
There needs to be some way to turn off the bright red and yellow interface and replace it with grey.
The header bar is huge and get rid of the application name in the header bar.

Home window:
The statistics in the home window would be much nicer if they were replaced with a graphic (such as a pie chart) to quickly and easily see used and available space.
Either use “edit” and “delete” or use two icons. Mixing the word “edit” with a trash can icon is inconsistent.
Remove “Add Drive” from this window. Once I’ve added all of my accounts I don’t need to see this every time I use the app, plus it takes up a lot of space.

Functionality:
The icon and list views are great but there needs to be a column view, like in the Finder.
The list view needs a way to add or remove columns.
The numbers in “size” column on the right side are too close to the edge of the window.
Instead of needing to open two or more windows, this app needs a split-window function.
The “back” button needs a companion “forward” button.

Other:
This app is not very intuitive. What is the purpose of the dropdown drawer at the bottom of the window? The button to extend or retract it is all the way at the top, in the header bar, where there is no clue as to its purpose.

I guess I don't understand the benefit of this over the syncing apps that come with many of the services like Box. I also don't see any features that mandate 10.8.

Well when you become a programmer and can analyze the code, perhaps you'll figure it out.

My apologies. I should have asked if there was a reason it had to be OS X 10.8. That was my intention. There are a lot of people that are held back from running 10.8, and it would be nice to know there were still solutions for an os like 10.7 that is not that old.

Version 3.6.0 of Cloud Commander has just been submitted to Apple and will support OS X 10.7 Lion.

The advantage of Cloud Commander should be that - contrary to the desktop apps that come with the cloud services - does NOT sync your files / make copies on the local hard drive. Only the files you drag and drop to your desktop are downloaded.

Why note support also 10.6.8. I can't upgrade since trackpad I am using doesn't support newer OSX. Thanks.

@polocanada: we looked into that, but basically this would require us to redo the complete user interface design and code (and then maintain it twice).

To be exact: we are using view based tables and would have to use cell based tables in 10.6.

Currently, we don't see enough demand to justify this effort. Please convince me otherwise ;-)

@Chas_m - If you need to analyze the code to see an advantage then it's not worth it.

But - @PFO - "The advantage of Cloud Commander should be that..." - Do you mean "is"? In which case it is worth it.

I agree with the comments about the UI though - in particular lose that red! Why not just emulate the Finder and make Apple a bit jealous?
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
