Best Windows 8 Apps
7 July 2016
I really like this app, I can look past the ads even! But what annoys me is that the Facebook tool will not work. It opens and instantly closes, or opens, has me connect then closes and will not login. Any help, tips or ideas?

BEST APP for an Actual Desktop PC that i have used yet, Even for a Tablet im sure its good. maybe not the BEST. I have one complaint that i thought i would never have, I like this so much i want to get rid of the dang advertisements. Well atleast on the desktop version I have found no where to actually purchase the APP?? please advise so that i may use your app the way it was meant to be used. Other than that annoyance, Great job keep it up and keep adding tools. (update the conversion calculator to include more things. ex.(Tip calculator, and Power calculator

Me gusta mucho la aplicación. Muchas funcionalidades y Es gratuita. La publicidad que aparece, no me es molesta. Me gustaria poder ajustar el tamaño del texto de la función Notes.

So far it works for what I intended. I keep it at its minimal size on the right side of my external monitor. Displays current time, weather, tasks and calendar.
Downfall is it does not seem to have a calendar sync option. My workplace uses Google for business and I use Google's calendars for everything.
If it would sync to Google calendar and Google tasks, this would be a product worthy of my cash. But for free this is still usable and acceptable.

Good collection of functions within the app allowing me to delete others that I no longer need. The functions need some tweaking to make them excellent. Currency converter has not worked yet. General converter needs touchup to complete it. Other functions in the app work well and prove useful. It is an app worth keeping on my system.

So I woke up this morning and launched toolbox like normal, only to be confronted with ads. I tried hitting the 'disable ad' button and guess what? It forwarded me to their paid version of this app. What?! This thing has been free and then suddenly decides it wants to put ads into it? Like I said, it was an alright app to begin with, but now it's not even worth keeping on my computer. AVOID THIS APP!

The idea is great I like it, but forcing me to use their apps, is a big disappointment, I would love the possibility to use my own apps, including the desktop, maybe this app was meant for RT devices.

Love the design and utility of this app!
I would strongly urge that you incorporate the option to save a default view so you can start using your favorite template design immediately after opening the app each time. Its a bit inconvenient and annoying to have to select the same one every time I open it.

I have not seen any app designed as thoughtful and elegant as Toolbox for Windows 8. I always refer to this app as a one of the best examples of good Windows 8 app development. Wow!

So I couldn't actually try it out, but it seems like a really helpful tool. Sad I can't find out. Everything I got to play worked well, except it never did load my gdocs in the browser tool.

Very cool UI; you can certainly tell the developer spent a great deal of time on this app that SHOULD honestly cost money--but only once. The fact that they try and getchya with add-on widgets and "tools" that each cost an exorbitant amount (like $2.00, for real?!) is just a shame.
That is why it gets a 2/5. Had I paid $4.00 outright I'd have given it a 5...

good and useful

A: No prompts on icons B: Cannot make layouts accommodate calendar even though you can reshape the windows C: Cannot get to calendar even after you save it D: "Remove from list" ? What does that mean? I want to uninstall it the way most apps work. I don't know if it will still be on my PC and just off the list of apps. !!!

I am enjoying the tool box but there is one problem. I would like to post something on the calendar and I can't seem to do that or I just don't know how. There is no help menu for this. Several of the tools you can get free so why pay for Twitter or RSS feeds? Otherwise this is an excellent extension to the Microsoft stable of 'goodies'.
