Redundancy par excellence
There's really nothing to see here. Format USB or Flash Drive Software is not only generic in name, but its functions are nothing new under under the sun. So much as they're actually a carbon copy of the Windows drive format interface. In case you don't know of what I'm referring, go view your computer drives and right click on either a secondary drive, or a connected removable drive. Select "Format". There! Now, carefully click on Cancel. You don't want to delete your games and/or entire video collection.
Format USB or Flash Drive Software detects all of the removable drives that you have connected to your computer. Checking a drive and selecting "Start Formatting" will bring up a dialog which is very similar to the original Windows dialog. In fact it even has fewer options. It's interesting to note that a confirmation dialog appears on top of the format dialog. Confirming it will begin the format. No need to check things first, right? The problem is of course that confirmation requests should appear after making changes and not before. Ah well...
Seeing that you could select multiple drives from the list, I plugged in two USB sticks and proceeded to format them. Well, in this case it appears that Format USB or Flash Drive Software gets a bit confused. Instead of opening a different type of dialog, for example one that would allow you to make bulk settings such as renaming or setting the file system, you're instead greeted by a series of the same dialog, each needing a separate confirmation. Of course, you could have done this yourself. Beyond the first, subsequent dialogs do not display the current drive's details. So you're left with guessing on which drive you're currently making changes. Not very productive if you ask me.
On top of that, the devs have the audacity to ask money for a premium version. Well, that would be fine and dandy as long as the basic version would not disappoint. But why would I pay for more features, when your demo doesn't do anything special?
- Removable drive formatting
I have initially expected some advanced form of formatting. Bulk formatting or at least some feature that would distinguish this application from the standard Windows tool. However, there is absolutely nothing of interest here. I have to give credit where is due though: Formatting works.
