Interesting! 5 stars by stickywicket Sep 14, 2006
Pretty nice. It displays a scrolling ticker of your photos at the bottom of your screen. It's kinda like filmloop but it runs on your desktop. I went to the roxio labs website and discovered that they have a beta of version 2. Tried that out and found all sorts of cool new stuff - RSS feeds, flickr fedds and so on. I was pretty impressed with both versions, but the beta is definitely a step up. Nice work roxio (and, it's free!) show Review details

Agree with Snapfiles Review plus it tried to run Installshield Update Service after intallation -also installs a Roxio Update Manager........ The main pics cannot be resized and if you click on the edit picture button it takes you to roxios site-I dont like this program,neat idea but a pain..... show Review details
The software developer responded to this review on Sep 25, 2006: Thanks for the comments - they ll help us to improve our products in the future. BTW, the update manager stuff is to ensure that you always have the latest version of the product. We thought users would want that feature. Perhaps in the next version, we ll provide a way to turn it off. Thanks again!
