Talking iRex-Feeder - Yet another stupid Manga-to-Pdf Converter

I used JE-Comics a long time and i think it's a great tool. But there where two reasons which forced me to develop an own converter:
  1. The gui had some missing functions like remember the last used directory
  2. Bored nerd searched something to code
Instead of writing a text about the features i make a little comparison with pro and contra:

Pro:
  • Nice gui
  • Remove images
  • Move images
  • Search images
  • Remember last used directory
  • Insert images sorted
  • Inserting the selected folder and all subfolders
  • Auto select the rotation for horizontal pictures
  • Set the dpi, width and height of the device (-> application is compatible to other ebook reader, default values are for iLiad 8" with toolbar)
  • very fast pdf generation (about 5-6 times on my computer compared to JE-Comics)
  • Showing the number of inserted and total images

Contra:
  • very slow image insertion
  • no splitting
  • no filtering
  • Actual only for windows (maybe linux and mac will follow)
  • Bigger pdfs (about 2 times compared to JE-Comics)
  • No presets for dpi, height and width of different devices (if somebody knows one i can include this)
  • No cbz support

The images converted with iRex-Feeder are a little bit smoother. I'm not sure if this is a pro or contra

Any ideas for new features or criticism?

Update: Added a preset menu. Actually it contains only iLiad 8" Normal and Fullscreen. For more presets i need the dpi, height and width (all in pixel) of the screen.

Update: Fixed a bug when move items down. Added an auto scroll function.
