Don't see the point of Object Desktop Subscription

Sunday, September 19, 2021 by NeverExists07 | Discussion: Object Desktop

I really don't see the point of the Object Desktop subscription that I've paid for the last few years seeing as only like 2 programs have been updated maybe 1 time every two months if we're lucky!. There is plenty of work to be done on the apps but nothing is getting done..... I don't think I will continue paying the subscription just to get maybe 6 updates in 2 years for my money. I feel like windowblinds is just stringing us along with nothing new in a very long time and just keep losing features that don't ever come back because they don't want to spend the time to work on it. Just taking peoples money and only update when windows update breaks something that's easy to fix.

Then, if I were you, I wouldn't renew.  In Stardock's defense, the way MS has implemented recent versions of the OS has significantly hampered SD's ability to modify the GUI via WB.  Curtains has been a response to that, at least in part.

I am not sure exactly what you are referring to but we, Stardock, have updated nearly every OD member app in the last couple of years and included new ones - Groupy, Curtains, DeskScapes 11, and just recently, Start11. 

While we hope you still find value in the product, it's hard to argue that we have not updated the apps or added new ones.
