As promised yesterday, ReStartMe has just gotten a major update with the release of version 2.0! Some of the new features include starting with Windows, starting in the system tray so as not to interrupt your focus, and it's ability to remember processes between uses has been reworked and upgraded! Many thanks to my friend from www.thefreewindows.com for helping me test version 2.0 as I tried to iron out all the bugs! I hope you enjoy the update, you can check out ReStartMe Version 2.0 on it's page.
Hey to everyone! First and foremost, I'd like to make request something of those visiting this site, and that is that you highly recommend you consider visiting www.thefreewindows.com. TheFreeWindows is run by a friend of mine, (Though due to the fact that I can't find his name on his website, I will refrain from providing it here out of respect for his privacy.) and he has been an invaluable resource since he first got into contact with me about a major issue with one of the early versions of Folder Axe, and he has since been great about testing my programs in a user environment and giving great user feedback which is something I feel is a priceless resource for any programmer. So do me a favor and check out his site, it's a great place with down-to-earth reviews of many, many different types of freeware.
Now, second, some of you may notice that I've been playing with the site's layout, ad colors (The text ads blend in nicely now!), and a search box. I would like to apologize if at some point any of you have come during one of my "reconfiguration" times and have been confused due to some of the things that were (or weren't) there. For the moment I don't expect to change anything too major, but I always welcome comments and suggestions about the site itself!
Now, lastly, some updates about the state of my programs. Compare Folders actually really has nothing going on, and while it does seem to be a very simple and one-purpose program, (Well, because it is) there isn't anything I plan on doing with it at the moment unless problems crop up. It does what I meant for it to do when I programmed it, simple as it is. I'm currently in the process of adding functionality to ReStartMe, and I feel pretty close to releasing version 2.0, as long as I can get a few more things worked out. As for Folder Axe, I have a good number of things to do with it, but most of them involve time consuming coding so while I'd like to release a new version by the end of this week, we'll just see. I'll more likely add things in one at a time as I have time and release updates in that way. So, suffice to say you can expect some new stuff soon!
Last but not least, I always love to hear comments by users who enjoy or have suggestions about my programs, and I make sure to reply to every last one, so don't feel like you'll be ignored. And remember, if you like a program, refer your friend to it's page on this site! Have a great day!
I've just released Folder Axe version 2.0! In this version, there's a new way to split files, "By Name". This works by looking at the first x number of characters in all of the file names, and it creates folders based upon that. If that confuses you, I recommend you just give it a try, you'll then see how simple it is! Also, I've given the interface a small redesign which makes it easier to code on my side, and easier to use on your side! Don't worry, it's still just as easy to use as ever. Check it out on the Folder Axe page!
Recently I've been in contact with the author of TheFreeWindows.com, (Who incidentally, I'd like to give a big Thank You to for both being the first to report the problem with Windows 7, and being so willing to endure my endless queries as I went through the process of fixing the error.) and he has just published a review of Folder Axe on his site. I've poked around a bit more, and I've found his site to be a great resource for good reviews by the end-user, unlike some "review sites" I've seen which just spout whatever the software publisher feeds to them. So check it out, I feel it's a great resource, and a great read as well!
I've had a couple Windows 7 users contact me over the past few days reporting that Folder Axe was crashing when they were attempting to open it. While I am not sure why this only happened on some Windows 7 computers and not other ones (In addition to not being a problem known to me on either XP or Vista) I am happy to say that this error has been fixed in the latest build, Folder Axe 1.3, which you can get from the download page. Sorry for the inconvenience, and I hope you all enjoy Folder Axe!
Folder Axe has gotten editor's pick from Brothersoft.com! Check it out on the Folder Axe page on my website!
As with my previous post, I was looking through my traffic sources in Google Analytics today, and noticed another site I didn't recognize. Lo and behold, another blogger has written an article about Folder Axe! I encourage everyone to visit his site, as well as check out the review of Folder Axe on NirmalTV.com!
While looking through my Google Analytics account today, I noticed that there was a site I didn't recognize producing a bit of traffic to my site. I decided to take a look, on the off chance that they had written an article on one of my programs. To my surprise, they've written an article about my most recent program, Folder Axe. I looked around the site a bit more, and I think it'll be one that I add to my "regularly visited" list. If you'd like to see it, head over to the review of Folder Axe on Addictivetips.com!
For such a new program, I'm pleasantly surprised that I've already gotten three 5 star awards for Folder Axe, but I'm excited about it nonetheless. Check out the awards on the Folder Axe Page.
Folder Axe has already earned an award from Download32.com and DownloadRoute.com. You can check them out on the Folder Axe Page.
