Dumb name.
And not only did the dev. copy the name of one comparable app, they also included a ghost icon which resembles one from another similar app. No originality!

With so many apps available for hiding desktop icons, it might seem another wasn’t needed, but this one is free, so there’s that.

Thanks for your comment. There's only so many visual representations you can use to express the action of hiding something, but I'm glad that none of the bad things you mentioned have to do with the actual features and operation of the software. At least Hiide is not ugly like the others :)

I didn’t try it which is why I didn’t rate it.

I use Path Finder, so my desktop icons are always hidden, no need for an additional app.

I NEVER open files from the desktop itself, I either open them from the Desktop folder in the P.F. sidebar, or the P.F. icon in the menu bar.

Even the name "GONE!" would be better than stuffing an extra vowel into "hide" and turning it into a typo.
But I think if you took a few minutes to consider it, you could come up with a better name of your own.
