Just not that much too it. - Looked cool and I thought maybe there was more to it than the screen shots indicated but no, that’s it. List a couple of cities and the screensaver rotates the globe, places a pointer and shows current weather. The quality of the image on the globe is pretty poor as well. Globe image also is static, does not update to reflect current weather. Not worth the price.
Finally got it working. - I finally got it working it’s been 3 or 4 months since I purchased it. If you’re having problems with the app for example if it has problems even launching check your file system with Disk Utility and see if it’s a “case sensitive” file system. I switch from "case sensitive” back to OS X default of “case insensitive” which I hate but after the re-install the app launched. I didn’t re-install just to get this app working I decided to do it because my Mac was running on 4 years up OS X upgrades so I figured it was time to clean house. I’m kind of disappointed, it’s extremely underwhelming compared to the Clear Day app itself. It would be nice if there were more options for example to show the videos of the current weather condition for the city being displayed, but instead it just spins the globe to the city and displays weather stats. Honestly for all the it does I’m not sure why it needs to run as in independent app instead of a screen saver in the preference panel. This is an good reason for Apple to allow “trial/demo” periods for software. Had I know it was so crash prone prior to buying it I wouldn’t have purchased it. Also one of the “preference” is an advertisement for the “Clear Day” app.
Beautiful visuals, poor app design - It’s beautiful, however, it’s actually a stand-alone app that runs "on top of" your current screensaver. (Not sure why the author didn’t write it as a screensaver that lives in the Scrensaver section of System Preferences.) So it’s a little awkward when you press a key to dismiss Clear Day only to see your login box appear with a deferent screensaver selected in System Preferences. I also noticed Clear Day uses a good chunk of CPU while it’s inactive, which is unfortunate for laptop users. Great design, please rewrite it as a real screensaver!
works sometimes - When it works, I like it a lot. However, sometimes my mac screensaver starts instead and I don’t know why. Also, even when clear day is running, if the mouse moves or the trackpad is touched, the mac screensaver starts up. I sent an email for help but have not received a response.
For only $2 bucks, this visually & informationally-full app is a steal! - I love this app. Downloaded & installed it just the other day. I did find it odd that I didn’t see it in my list of Screensavers in the Display Preferences but rather, it ran as an app bypassing & apparently circumventing the existing screensaver I had set up (Ken Burns’ pictures). What’s most amazing to me about this SS when it activates is seeing the gigantic world globe with the cities I entered into my list showing as pinpoints, & the pinpoints progressively changing every 5 seconds or so, with the globe, which shows the continents, moving over to the next pinpoint to the next city in my list, showing lots of weather information about each of those cities as they each show up movie-style. So overall, great job, Clear Day devolopers! Beautiful & fascinating visual elements... Now…. Any way you think you could get your screensaver to show up in the Display/Screensaver Preferences window as a strictly Apple-like screensaver, a Quart type I suppose it would have to be? Other than that, I like your app a lot. Very similar to the slightly more visually detailed Windows’ Yowindow but still, beautiful work. Thanks! Kevin Kendall
