Good value for the price - Nothing earthshattering, but the wallpapers are pleasing to the eye. The live part is some basic animation or clock and weather on top of a static background, but it works and its something different to dress up your desktop for a little while. I would like to see more dramatic animations, maybe something interactive, but I’m sure that would be more CPU intensive and expensive. Overall, worth a buy if you’re bored with your desktop and want to dress it up.

Review by iceicekristi

Used to love this app, now it doesn’t work - I downloaded this app probably 4 years ago and I absolutley loved it when I first downloaded it. I always used it around the holiday times to “decorate” my desktop. I also loved the ability to see what the weather was outside. I got so many compliments on my desktop. Now the weather doesn’t work at all. The app is really laggy and when I tried to contact support, I got no reply back whatsoever. I agree with other reviews. This app should be taken out of the store so more people don’t buy it with high expectations only to realize that the developer abondened it a long time ago.

Mediocre at best - Lucky this app is only 99 cents, so I dont really care about the loss. In all honesty this is not even worth the bandwidth used to download it. Most of the themes are awful. The only one I enjoyed was the moving stars over the apple galaxy wallpaper, although the animation could have been done a bit better. The real problem is that it uses a serious amount of system resources to display the theme. At times it would make my new mac book pro so hot it would become totaly unusable. The developer has the right idea, but there needs to be MUCH more work done before its released as a comercial product in the app store.

Review by Austin Guevara

Excellent Aplication - a few simple suggestions - The app itself functions virtually flawlessly and looks wonderful! It would be nice if there were a simple way for users to create and share their designs, using custome wallpapers, with customizable fonts and widgets. Additionally, it would be remarkably convinient if there were an option to turn off Live Wallpaper whilst unplugged from AC power to prevent battery drain. Great app, worth the money; thank you, developers!

Version 2.6
Review by FireHunterX

Needs work - Great concept and value, however for those who are very attentive or want fluidity, this app needs some work. The title is a bit misleading, as the background images are not all animated, rather they include animated elements like a weather widget or clock. Those that are animated are poorly animated and show frame lag, even on high end Macs. This is evident with the Nebula and Polar clock themes. I like the idea of live wallpaper, but if the implementation is not fluid and streamlined, it is not worth it. Also I have noticed that when the app is quit, it does not revert back to your old wallpaper and instead leaves the image from the theme you were using before the app was quit.

Review by Overcast Skies

Beautiful, but one MAJOR flaw - Make no mistake, the wallpapers offered in this app are stunning to look at. You can customize them also, and (if you are handy with javascript, html and css) you can even make your own personal wallpaper. That being said, there is one fatal flaw- it is a HUGE drain on the battery. After setting up my live wallpaper, I could literally watch the battery percentage tick away every minute or so. Only use this app if you are plugged in!

Review by DiesleADogg

Okay - I would reconmend this app for people who are running a mac with 8GB or more. I was running this on a MacBook air 2013 with 4GB and it would lag a ton with apps like Pixelmator and Screnn Record Utility. I ended up delete this app because it would make my computer lag so much. It does work great on computers with 8GBs though. I really like the app and it really makes your computer have a fresh look. Themes are cool and it displays the weather and time and updates fairly well. For 0.99, I think it is well worth it and would reconmend downloading it
