#11, Fredward

BTW, all of DLL's that you were enumerating, exactly are not the QuickTime part.

They are from the Qt Framework "...a cross-platform application framework that is widely used for developing application software with a graphical user interface (GUI)..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_(framework)

QuickTime and the Qt Framework are different things.

Cheers,

I first thought this is absolutely fantastic as it was one of the fastest loading programes, it seemed to go downhill from then on !!
It took 2 attempts to register, it only gave 2 screens (No better than any freebe !! so the near $20 is vastly overpriced
I am really scratching my head how it actually serves any purpose as I was expecting a screen management program.

I could offer the company my help in designing the ultimate in screen capture and management as that is what I was expecting, but was extremely disapointed as I expect alot are and the thumbs down reflect this.

A word of advice to the company is to THINK !!! first to what is it you are actually achieving and not trying to baffle us with science.
This program is half baked and is screaming out to be redesigned.

A big thumbs down - sorry !

Running windows vista

downloaded and tried to install but the serial did not work either even tried it in on their download from website and got a no go!
So can not comment on program but I can see some uses for this type of program if your watching different stocks and such.

This is the Lite version w/ only 2 snapshots available. The Pro has 8. I use a software platform for trading, where each indicator for each commodity has it's own window. Even w/ 5 monitors, it's hard to manage the screen real estate, and I can't minimize and pull up a layout for each instrument without a lot of time and work. The tray icons for each one (about 40 of them) are identical, and I have to hover over one and wait for the popup window-list for each one I want to 'open', if I've minimized them for various reasons, or even accidentally. For me - this looks to be a Godsend, I'm as excited as a child at Christmas. This may not be for everyone, but is an answer I've been looking for - seriously looking for - for over about 1.5 years. The 'giveaway' won't cut it for me, unfortunately. I can see it's near uselessness, and kind of resent that the Pro version wasn't offered here. I understand their business-mindedness in that decision, but I think they've cut off their nose to spite their face, based on the reviews. 2 screenshots are virtually worthless. 8? That's something. I *may* buy it. But now that I know this is possible, I'm letting the programmer of the platform I use know about it, so he can offer this functionality w/in the platform. I've got a good relationship w/ him from discussing the functionality of the platform w/ him many times now.

After install I wanted to copy/past reg key, but the program won't allow it. Then I started entering the code and made a mistake, so I hit the back key on the keyboard and it didn't work. I closed the program and uninstalled.

"Chris," above, not sure if is a boy or girl, complains bitterly about program, proclaiming "'thus' (sic.) is a POS.". But his/her only issue seems to be his/her personal frustration with registering it. Is that fair to so vehemently condemn this product and its developer because of a personal annoyance?

I've tried this software few months ago and than uninstalled it after 30 minutes. It does not restore the windows at the same place after a shut down. They overlap and move around at random places. Creates restore points after every new window closed and does it over and over again. It slowed down my laptop and wasted over 500MB in creating useless restore points that you have no control over it.

GridMove is all you need. It's free, supports multiple displays, and can be customized (screen region templates, hotkeys). It's a compiled AutoHotkey script, so if you already have AutoHotkey you could get the AHK script version instead (and then you can truly customize it).

Today's Giveaway major use is on multiple monitors as for a single monitor there just not enough space or most programs do not co-operate in displaying the correct data in each segment.

However on multiple monitors to keep everything properly aligned (Such as for network administrators or Tech support agents) will do fine for their job as for the average user I really don't see the use.

I have two multi monitor systems with Win7-64 bit. The main concept here is very helpful and interesting except for one thing: This software should allow assigning a fixed size to certain programs OR windows. I have systems with 8 and 12 monitors and this works nicely except for those 3 or 4 windows that I need much larger. To be really helpful this system would do what it does (divide evenly) then allow me to pick certain windows (by program or specific window) and size it and freeze it while dividing the remaining space among those windows not resized-frozen. This is of no use to me on my 1 and 2 monitor systems so I see why others have said what they have said.

I can't get it to register, All I get is the buy or keep trying it for free screen! When I click buy it takes me to a page to buy it and when I click keep trying free it goes no where???

So, I can't tell you anything because it wont install and run properly. How did you guys get it to register?

#3 James - You shouldn't even be commenting about it if you didn't actually USE the software. Your comparison to Win8 is most likely flawed as well, as you said yourself you barely used it. Your comment doesn't tell anyone anything useful, nor help anyone make informed decisions.

Thing installs and registers just fine, works with dual monitors, but I hate to say it but for the kind of work I do this isn't a productivity boost for me. I can see how it might be for some, but it just doesn't fit my more dynamic workflow, I don't ever know that only a certain amount of windows are going to be open

The little utils "I Use for productivity" are as follows.

Custom Classic Theme (XP - ProLCD/Panther), on win7 /CLASSIC shell+(windowblinds My beloved proLCD won't run on it!)

Background is always either Black or Dark Brushed metal of some type

Allsnap - XP/7
Winroll - XP/7
process hacker ALL/win
Clockster XP (only XP)

I shell script the services using "sc" in windows(ALL) and tune what runs at boot, the tools needed: VB6, batch file programming.

ex:
Automatic Updates and BITS are off until I actually want to do updates
ex2: Print is off until I turn it on.

I might not be the smartest in the world, but my boxes are snappy quick and have 10+ years worth of debugging wisdom. I always meet my deadlines on time or ahead of time. Hardware failures don't kill me anymore cause I clone the drives 1:1, and buy 2 ea. motherboard, 2ea sound card, 2ea capture card, 2ea video card, 2ea hard disk.

If I was going to KEEP this and experiment, I would disable the HKCU/Run key so she doesn't start at windows boot.

Sadly, I will be uninstalling this one, cause I like to keep things nice and CLEAN.

The other thing I noticed (I always notice these things) when INSTALLING is the use of some either static or webkit quicktime DLL files. Without doing further research I know these files
QtCore4.dll
QtGui4.dll
QtNetwork4.dll
QtSolutions_SingleApplication-2.6.dll

need updating when Quicktime is updated for Security exploits. (Catch 22 for un-updatable program, though you could probably copy these files from something else that uses QT. Now I guess it could be argued that this program doesn't have actual files flowing through it like a streaming audio app, or photo editor, it CAN be a risk if the DLL's become exploitable and the REMOTE attacker knows the PATH to these files.

More info here.
http://www.johanpaul.com/blog/2011/07/deploying-qt-and-qt-quick-applications-on-windows/

Definitely QT WILL be exploited in the future as in the past
http://www.google.com/search?&q=QtCore4.dll+QtGui4.dll+QtNetwork4.dll+exploit

SO anyways, like I said, I'm just a dummy..

I have to register twice before being registered. After installing, opened several applications, and arranged them. Was able to do such twice and took 2 snapshots successfully, but on trying the 3rd time, cannot take 3rd snapshot. I wonder why, when it says that you can take 9 snapshots. Tried closing all applications and clicking on a snapshot to restore. It becomes confusing, because when I click on it, only one window appear, and sometimes at random location, and also the applications GUI shadowing through the desktop makes it confusing to see through it, that I cannot tell whether my mouse click will be on the GUI or on the opened application. For one monitor, definitely it makes things more confusing than orderly. Maybe for double or triple monitors, this may help. But still I cannot understand why I can only take 2 snapshots on my WinXP 32 bit.

I'd much rather recommend WinSplit to you guys. It does the same and it's probably better than this. Also it's free and I don't feel like this app here is worth its price, even $5 would still be pricey.

Downloaded and installed without any difficulty.
#4 Registration was also trouble-free. I didn't register straight away but closed the program and then started it again by clicking on the desktop icon. The Registration screen is under the Settings tab - not the "?" one. A cursor is in the centre of the registration box so I right-clicked on that and pasted in the key from the readme.txt file.
Registration in the name "PROMO" was immediate.

I used an earlier version of this program on Win7 (32-bit) but stopped using it in favour of "Fences" which was free at that time. "Fences" has now been upgraded and is subject to an annual license, so I thought I would give Mosaico a second chance on my Vista 932-bit) P.C.
Only time will tell if I find it useful.

That review is for version 1.3, what is different about 1.4? There does not seem to be anything on the website like a changelog. Also no statement about Windows 8 compatibility?

Thus is a POS,, First off, why would anyone pay for this? Second, when I run it, it asks for the serial, buy, or keep using the trial. Third, the serial given in the zip doesn't work, I tried the copy and right click to paste but it wouldn't let me right click and pasre, so I put the cursor in the blank space where the serial goes and used crrl + V and it pasted in but was invalid serial. I tried it two more times and then typed it in and still isn't the correct serial. And finally Fourth, all that happens when I try and use the trial is a big rectangular white box pops up and stays on top of everything. If I click it, it crashes and a window pops up telling me to close it or check for a solution and then close it. The following link is a picture of the white rectangle that just sits there doing nothing except stay on top of everything until I click on it and it crashes and I have to close it out.

Free alternitives are to move the windows where you want them and not waste your time downloading, installing, and then uninstalling this POS.

Final Verdict...This company is a joke. They even sell a program on their site that will turn off your monitor and turn on your screensaver, lol.

Please don't waste your time like I did, but if you do, please let us all know how well it works for you.

By the way, I have a Windows 7 64 bit computer.

I am not voting on this software. I can only COMMENT on it.

From reading their description, and from having used windows 8 (for about a day), it sounds about the same as windows 8.

If you like your windows phone, grab this, if not, dont!

I'm just going to make some general comments for those unfamiliar with these types of utilities. Some people like these sorts of utilities that save and restore window locations and maybe launch the apps. I like the simpler utilities like NTWind WindowSpace that allow you to easily size and position windows on-the-fly, but I no longer use them. Win7 has some built-in support, yet some other window management features were eliminated. Of course, Win8 has its super-crippled window management in the Win8 UI. A lot depends upon your number of monitors and resolutions, higher-resolution displays benefit more.

Pros
*‘Snaps’ or ’tiles’ open windows together side-by-side
*Windows can be resized to different sizes or all the same size
*Allows you to drag and drop where you want the windows to be placed
*Offers both automatic and manual window placement
*Supports multiple monitor setups
*Supports keyboard shortcuts
*Can take snapshots of 8 different window configurations that you can restore at any time. These window layouts can be restored with just one click.

Cons
*Most of their ‘automatic’ setups are not worth using
*Can be frustrating to get windows where you want them and at a ‘usable’ size

Free Alternatives
WinSplit Revolution
