Over the past two weeks, I’ve received over 500 requests for new apps to be included in Broomstick. To include an app in Broomstick, I have to download the app, launch it, open up its internal bits, and then find which of its files are the icon files it uses in the menubar. This isn’t a very hard thing to do, but it does take about 5 minutes for each app. To get through all of the existing app requests would take me about a week of solid work. This is obviously unsustainable.
To solve this problem, I’ve decided to offer you, the users of Broomstick, the opportunity to help find the icon information for apps that you and your friends want to be able to hide. This means that you can go and find the icon information for the apps that you want to be able to hide, submit this information in to me, and then I’ll throw this information into Broomstick, meaning that in the next update, you’ll be able to hide the apps you want!
