Review by Maurice Hutchinson

Very Realistic - I think this application is fantastic! Very enjoyable to watch, listen to and just overall relaxing. Its a great stress release for me. I'm running Yosemite on my Mac and the application runs problem free. However, it would be very helpful if the application could allow you to directly purchase and download in-app purchases like the Premium Pond and Twilight Waterfall. Other than that, I'm looking forward to the updates as they come out!

Excellent Graphics, but HUGE Energy Consumer - I was enticed by the graphics and am very impressed and pleased with the quality of the screensaver. However I rated this as 2-star because within the first day of the application running, I noticed my Macbook Pro battery life was drained within 2-3 hours (whereas it normally lasts 8-9 hours), and the fan is constantly ramped to cool the system. I decided to check Activity Monitor and the Energy Impact for Koi Pond was a staggering 257 units (vs 2.6 units for Messages and 2.8 units for Mail). And this is without Koi Pond actively displaying the screensaver, but rather running in the background. I’m not sure why this consumes so much energy while supposedly idle, but it is enough of a deterrent from running the application that I keep the app closed, which now defeats the purpose of paying $2-4 in the first place to acquire it. Nice graphical artistry, but extremely high energy consumption. Koi Pond developers, please find a way to make this app more energy efficient.

Beautiful! - This is a beautifully animated screen saver/wallpaper, it really looks like you’re looking top down into a shimmering pond full of koi fish that move quite realistically. Very relaxing and pretty to have and it’s fun to show this off when someone is looking at my iMac. Fish screensavers have dramatically improved since the days of Marine Aquarium on my older Mac! Maybe the developer can create something similar to looking into a tank or coral reef full of tropical fish. The only issue I had was that the screensaver mode turned on (I had set it to turn on after 20 min) in the midst of watching a movie on the computer, so it doesn’t seem to know that a movie being played is not necessarily inactivity but this is a very minor issue. Overall excellent app.

Review by Chromatic8

An essential component of my meditative practices - I wrote an automator action which coordinates KoiPond3D, iTunes and a timer application to play a shuffled meditative music playlist, turn on a timer and put Koi Pond3D into screensaver mode with its music turned off. The mix of Koi Pond’s sound effects and the iTunes music, along with the soothing visuals help me to relax and prepare for making decisions non-reflexively. For me at least, it beats focusing on a candle flame or looking at a static image.

Review by LoyLoy Gupta

really nice - i had been looking for a aquarium wallpaper and just didn’t see any that i liked. I stumbled on to Koi Pond 3D by chance and liked what I saw. It really looks nice and works very well. I had a little trouble figuring out how to use it as a screen saver but once i contacted the company and they told me what i needed to do it worked just fine.

Hypnotic and Calming - Working in a stressful environment, I’ve come to love my little electronic koi pond. Bought the extra fish and the additional ponds to add to the fun! The sound effects make it even more relaxing. Wonderful app!
