Not worth the money. - This very basic app will display a slideshow of images placed into a particular folder; that is about all it does for $2.99. The app also has difficulties when it comes to moving or resizing the picture. First, it does not allow you to place the picture anywhere on the screen and has severe difficulties with multiple monitor setups. I was unable to place the frame onto my third monitor without moving the app using OSX; I could not simply drag the window to the other monitor. Second, it does not allow dynamic resizing of the picture size or full-screen mode. You are allowed to select from a few fixed picture sizes. I would not recommend this app even if it were free. For $2.99 you will come away feeling robbed.

Enjoyable and works - This app does exactly what it claims - it puts a nice picture wherever you want on your desktop. You can tell it which pictures/folders you want it to go through and set timing and size options. I enjoy seeing pictures I have long forgotten were on my hard drive. If you have any problems or questions with this app, the developer is EXTREMELY helpful and supportive and gets right back to you. I was having trouble moving the frame exactly where I wanted on my screen, and he fixed the problem for me. I really enjoy this app.
Not polished - Needs work - It is a good start, but it seems very buggy. It does not consistantly work. It also gets corrupted as well. The sizing of the image is buggy and the movement of the image on the screen is restricted. Bottom line, needs work.
