By starting the app you get menubar menu titled PD which allows you to create new desktop folders, switch between them, open non active ones in FInder, or delete dektop folders you don't need anymore (they are moved to main deskop then).
All this can be done through the menu (take a look at screenshots), or with keyboard shortcuts.
Desktop transitions are animated, but that can be turned off. Switching of the desktops is done on the fly regardless of active application, so you can do it even while having save as dialog open which can be exeptionally handy.
Trial version: Unzip, drag and drop to Applications folder and run.
App Store version: Install through Mac App Store app.
