Start Is Back - 2.1 release

Why this fantastic program has become a payment?

To reward the author (slightly - it's cheap), and help pay for some of his expenses to make and improve the program.

I want one license because they are mandatory two licenses? Will be updates free?

http://www.startisback.com/#buy-tab

Yes, 2PC license is the minimum now. 1PC license was sold during Black Friday sale. If you can't afford $3, you may wait for Christmas sale. Updates are free forever as outlined in FAQ.

3 dollars for license -

3 dollars = 6.6 US 1st class postage stamps

3 dollars = 1 big mac, with change left over

3 dollars = less then one US gallon of gasoline

3 dollars = 1 large bag of potato chips at the local supermarket

3 dollars = 1 average size birthday greeting card

Skip JUST ONE of the above JUST ONE TIME in your entire life and you have paid for a license that never expires.

My God! I cannot stand up under the crushing weight of this horrendous expense!!! :lol: :lol:

(edit: 1st time I pressed Add reply noting happened . This may be a double post - please accept my apologies)

I did as you said and skipped the gallon of gas. My truck died 18 miles away from work. I'll send you my road side assist bill :P

Will it be in Windows 8 Store ? as Desktop App ?
I'd say this is waaaay out of StartIsBack's context.

Aside from being out of place issue, it would not pass certification because of its loading / hooking methods. I could probably create a version which can pass certification, but i see no reason to do it.

U could get better sales from it... and more awareness... I'm sure it will be in the Top apps quickly

Very impressive! The themes look great and combining the context menu is something a couple users asked for. Although they'll have to wait until I have a way to roll this out to 300+ users.

Not sure what you changed there mate but I am getting some strange results now with the user pictures when using it with some of my other custom themes, last version was working correctly but now the user picture frame is placed too high, seems there are new properties that override the ones from the theme.

Edit: never mind I figured it out, I see that you changed some of the properties to read from the main style and not the one from the style folder in SIB.

I'd say this is waaaay out of StartIsBack's context.

Are there any Start Menu/Screen replacers in the app store now? I was under the impression that such apps wouldn't be allowed into the store.

Yes, there are at least three. I just came from the Windows Store and doing a quick search for "Start Menu" returned these three:

Pokki Start Menu, Classic Start Button, StartFinity

@ Tihiy,

Did you get a chance to look at this post, and consider whether there might be another payment option through the PayPal service?

regards,

Laurence

I'd like to make a feature suggestion, but definitely not a priority; just something to keep in the back of your mind for possible implementation later on:

Some sort of on the fly preview of the Start Menu when changing the visual style, either in a thumbnail or actually always show the actual Start Menu while in the Start Menu configuration or at least in the Appearance section.

This way it would be easier to spot any and all differences between different visual styles, without hitting Apply and then opening the Start Menu. The differences can be slightly subtle. :D

All that said, wonderful work on this; it's beautiful and thanks for the combined right-click context menu!
