It's a great little free bit of software, very pretty, and also quite easy to use once you get the hang of one or two little tricks.

I did manage to crash it a couple of times, mainly when I tried to use Transform on a selection rather than a layer, but otherwise it's stable enough.

There are a couple of serious omissions though. Although you get Exposure, and Hue/Saturation, you don't get Levels, or Colour Balance, both of which I think absolutely essential in any layer-based image editor.

But, for a free app, it's neat. Just make sure you download the 0.5 Beta, not 0.1 which has far less in it.

I used versions of iBackup up to 5.1.7 quite happily for more than a year, and apart from the confusing help manual, I found it was a great little app that did what is was supposed to, efficiently and with the minimum of fuss.

Now, at one stroke (5.2.6) the app has been stripped of much of its usefulness. The log report no longer lists the files which have been amended or added during the backup.

Is there ANY user who doesn't want to know what has been affected by the backup? I don't know of any, and I have had to restore 5.1.7 to get this functionality back. I won't be updating to any newer version. (The developer tells me the change is to get extra speed, but I did not notice any difference during the backups I did using 5.2.6).

I would strongly advise any users who need the BASIC ESSENTIAL MINIMUM facts of file updates, to download a previous version if it is still available.
