Review

Hot Shots is a desktop utility that enables you to browse collections of artworks and designs which were shared on the Dribble.com website. This program comes as an alternative to using your default web browser for checking what's new on the aforementioned webpage and downloading your favorite graphic designs.

The application allows you to preview the posted designs, download artworks to your local directories, follow Dribble.com users, find detailed information about the shared pictures, etc. You don't need much computer experience for handling this utility as it's very intuitive and features easy-to-configure settings in its Preferences panel.

Furthermore, you can configure the program to refresh the design list at any interval of time you like, play a sound effect once a download task is completed, and automatically delete the cache data.

Unfortunately, the application occasionally runs slow. For example, in my testing, the app kept freezing whenever I tried to sort the artworks or to change the destination folder for the downloaded content. Another bad aspect is that the app is missing a built-in search tool which might prove to be of good use when looking for a certain type of graphic design.

Still, the program provides you with a simple solution for browsing Dribble.com designs and artworks from your desktop. It's easy-to-use, comes with an affordable price, and helps you keep track of the latest uploads from the Dribble.com website.
