Poor Optimizations, Poor UI, Help us out.

 First, you might want to put a link to your new support forums on the top of the old forums, the ones you are directed to when you click support from the Raptr UI. Maybe even have that support button lead you here, unless you are trying to make it hard to find this. It just seems like it makes sense to have people quickly sent here, and not have to open a thread to find this link, just makes sense.

As for the app itself: First, it would be nice if it was capable of using windows snap-to function, like even the most simple programs do, so we can quickly resize the windows and dock it to the edges, that just seems like it makes sense too. Why is there no way to stop it from re-scanning for games on every launch? What is the reason for NOT including that as an option? Why can I not resize the list and sections INSIDE the app, I can't tell what some games are if the share the same first part of a name, because I can not make the section that shows my library any wider? There is more, but lets just try to start with the big stuff.

And then the optimizations.....   I have a Sapphire Dual X R9 280, which is as we know an Overclocked 7950, yet this is what Raptr suggest for good performance on Far Cry 3: Everything Low. If by good performance you mean 200+ FPS or 120 with vsync, then yes. Everything set to high on that game will run 60+ FPS on this card WITHOUT the overclock that Saphire enables it with. Why is this? Then there is the quality setting as well, which, as I have it set averages 45-50 FPS, yet your optimization for quality, which you would think would be the best possible setting that is playable, is telling me to turn most things down but turn the MSAA up from 2 to 8? Most players cannot tell the difference between a 2 and 8 pass MSAA, but they sure can tell the difference between High and medium textures. The GPU has 3GB's of VRAM, one of which will never be used even with the Highest texture settings, yet your app is telling me to turn that down? THIS MAKES NO SENSE. Here are some screens of what I'm talking about. Do you guys need some help, I will work for real cheap if it would help you....
