Good progress! 5 stars now. - Andrew, besides of full screen, I really hope you can add an option to make it work on "desktop picture mode". Please drop me a mail if you need help as we did a lot on desktop picture mode related. Meanwhile, if you can add "local time display" to the city popup, that will make your app the best of this kind. BTW, as an developer myself, I did not do app reviews and you are the only exception. Updated 05/22/12 Good progress! 5 stars now. Our "wallpaperGUARD" monitored the change of desktop pictures in real time. You may use a layer staying there right in front of wallpaper just like our "desktopCinema" does. BTW, may we add an option of hiding the dock icon? it's really a full size dock icon there.

Version 1.6
Review by Peatree2

World Clock Support - Totally agree with the previous two reviewers… we need World Clock Support! If I enter a city, it doesn't even tell me the current time in that city! And the Command + Right Arrow command to move time one minute forwards (also backwards) doesn't work. That command just shifts to your next desktop. Please fix! We paid $10+ for this app and want better service!
