Fences 2 beta demo video

Wednesday, June 6, 2012 by Frogboy | Discussion: Personal Computing

This is my first shot at demoing Fences.  It also gives you an idea of just how compelling the new features are.

The pages thing reminds me of the Android canvas, except it'll be much more useful on a desktop.

When will it be available?  Are you going to release a beta version on  control center for those of us who like to try the beta?  Looks like a very good thing; I would like to get away from the start menu; I have vision problems and the start menu, for some reason I haven't bothered to figure out, is very hard for me to see on some windowblinds setups.  I also have other handicaps which prevent me from spending as much time as I'd like to at the computer, so I depend heavily on things like Fences with different Windoblinds skins, usually darker skins which allow me to have a lot of contrast between letters and backgrounds, among other things....anyway, I am very grateful to Stardock for such wonderful products.  My preferences are like yours I believe, in that I do not like anything on my desktop -- usually -- but when I want stuff there, Fences has been an excellent way to pop them onto the desktop, then remove them when I am done with the desktop.  I have been using a "kludge" using Fences and two monitors, where I have a "bunch of" clusters of different fences which I put on my laptop monitor until I need them, then double click my desktop and drag sets of fences from it to the Dell 23" monitor I mostly use (IPS on that one is absolutely breathtaking!).  This is just barely better than not doing anything at all, but Fences2 appears to be the solution I have been waiting for, with its ability to have pages of Fences; now I won't have to make pseudo-pages on my smaller screen to slide over to my big screen when I need them etc.  So, you can see why I am impatient now that I have seen what fences2 will do for me!  I have been an Object Desktop subscriber since day one, which is the ONLY subscription I have ever kept more than one year!  Keep creating new and better products and versions, please.  You make life richer for people like me!

NOTE: Have you noticed what happens when you have a typo which leaves out the "n" in "fences"?  I just did and it gave me quite a good laugh, but it could be embarassing in some cases.  Just sayin'....)

With the addition of pages, I may begin to use fences more than just to toggle away desktop icons as I do now.  I can see replacing my OD+ nested stack docklet with fences I can easily shove to the side when not in use.  There would be too many for one desktop, which is why I don't just do that now.  The pages will expand my desktop real estate!
