Some months ago I got a license for Default Folder X inside a bundle.
For those who don’t know:
Default Folder X enhances the Open and Save dialogs in all of your applications so you can…
— Go faster: Quickly navigate through folders with hierarchical menus that expand as you mouse over them.
— Do it all: Preview, tag, rename, compress, delete or add comments to files in any Open or Save dialog.
— Just click: Need to save a file in a folder you have open in the Finder? Just click on the Finder window!
I was happy with the software, even if sometimes it made Finder behave slowly opening the save dialog windows. And then El Captain arrived and things went ugly.
The developers were caught off-guard by its coming – even if every developer dealing with Cupertino knows about the yearly OS upgrade – and things were delayed for months … Their first blog post of incompatibility with Default Folder X 4 and OS X 10.11 dates back to July 10th, 2015.
For the record I must underline the fact that OS X El Capitan was released to end users on September 30, 2015
Finally January 11th St. Clair Software released the v5 of their software. If you purchase the app after June 1st the new born is a free upgrade, else not. This time they want me to pay ~15$ for a license renewal, after having paid their app and not being able to use it for 100 days for their fault.
For me this is not acceptable, and in the last 100 days I have unlearned to rely on their software … so I’ve removed the app and ciao! Farewell St. Clair Software, it was an half-decent experience with you!
