The perfect Fireplace - All the great features the classic Fireplace App provided plus more! This elegantly simple application lets you enjoy a beautiful fireplace. The audio is superb, the roar and crackle of the fire heart warming. If you're this review, you owe it to yourself to give Fireplace Plus a try.

video loops skip - Downloaded the free version, I liked it so much I thought I would support the product and buy the full up version. I was excited by the "no obvious looping" claim in the description. However, all 3 extra video sequences have VERY obvious looping! Stick with the free version.

Kind of a novelty - One can't help but believe that a real fire is more alluring than a digital one. Right? The use of this application is pretty sparse, but I suppose this depends on the person. The video quality is good, although the colors are somewhat pale. The video quality of this plus version is only minimally better than the free version. Side option window could be improved.

The sounds are fantastic! - Definitely worth a buck. Turn the crackle all the way up and enjoy the ambiance!

Stick with the free version until stutter loop is gone - Tried the free version and liked it so thought I would support the developer and buy the plus. The original fireplace looks and sounds great. The three additional ones all have an obvious and noticeable stutter where the video loops. For a paid app, I would expect the video to be seamless. Hope there is an update soon to fix that. Otherwise, if you want a real soothing fireplace experience, just download the free version.

Review by LookItsAlex

Upgraded after loving the free version... - Great app. Can't deny that. The classic is, well...classic. I reallu enjoy the stone background and even the camp ground one...but the modern one...yikes. Watch HGTV. Modern = Simple. Aesthetically pleasing. What you have looks like the making of a meth lab in a bad part of town. Image search 'modern fireplace' and the first rows are spot on. Other than app. (if the modern didnt look so crappy, this would be 5 stars) (please take this into consideration) :)

YOWZA!!! - I almost never bother to review - well, actually, I don't think I have EVER bothered to review an app, but I had to write in and thank the makers for this one. I've searched high and low for a good fireplace emulator (would have settled for decent), but all I've ever found were so-so graphics looped embarrassingly badly and sound like crackly plastic cups crunched in my hands. Until now. This fireplace is so real, I almost felt the heat on my face. It looks and sounds more like video of a fireplace looped so seamlessly that I almost fell asleep watching before I caught the skip signalling it had looped back. This is a completely realistic emulation - the flickering flames mesmerized me, startling me every now and then when a log popped and spit a flaming piece of itself at the glowing embers underneath the pile. The sound was perfectly in sync with the image on screen. I was even able to play my smoky jazz low in the background. I couldn't have asked for a better experience - I'd pay many more times what I did. This IS a fireplace, sans the mess and heat. Trust someone too lazy to ever bother reviewing and buy this. You'll be so glad you did.
