Real Aquarium HD for Mac is quite possibly the most beautiful application available for the Mac platform. It's like having Discovery's "Planet Earth" right in front of you presented in a fun and interactive manner. Either use it as a screensaver, or an interactive app to learn about some beautiful animals!

Real Aquarium HD includes:

- Absolutely breathtaking High Definition footage of underwater life
- The built in interactive encyclopedia called "Animal Info" which allows you to learn about what you are viewing
- Built in music with options to choose from your iTunes library with a beautiful cover flow interface.

- A super easy way to change the footage that you are viewing
- A gorgeous "animal info" full screen mode which allows you to step away from your "aquarium" and learn about the species you were just watching

**This is the type of app that is great to use when you want to just sit back and relax, or if you wish to learn about some new underwater life, you can delve into it and learn something new.

Jaw Dropping - This is a truely beautiful app perfect for anyone. Whether you sit back and use it as a screensaver, or delve into it and learn about what you're watching using the interactive encyclopedia, it's a great app to use. It's built in music adds a nice touch, but what really makes the music system innovative is it's beautiful iTunes cover flow interface that allows you to select music from YOUR own library. If you have any questions on this app, click the support button on this AppStore page

Review by Beach Bum Brent

It - It is MASSIVE HUGE FILE SIZE! Realize that this will take probably an hour or more to download, since the file size is 2.44 GB! I didn't realize that this was such a large file before I bought it, and that would have changed my purchase to a NO. Now the app performs well, I have no problems. Then again, I have the most powerful iMac possible, with the max RAM (16 GB) installed, and the i7 has 8 processing threads. I can see how this might not perform well on an average system. If you don 't have a powerful computer with plenty of hard disk drive space left, I would stear clear of this one. The app displays some beautiful HD video of underwater creatures. Very elegant and gorgeous overall.

Review by Bend person

Not worth the download time - This app is a good idea: turn a movie into a screensaver. That's where the goodness ends. The video is of low quality; plays smoothly but looks terrible and low-res on my 24" display. Music is OK and you can change it, but I found no prefs to set music volume or just plain silence (why would I want music playing all the time in Screensaver mode???). I watched/listened for a while and decided it's worth chucking, which I did. Glad it was free.

Review by Foreverblu

Enjoying - This app REALLY gives you a BIG break. You get to watch lots of animals including my favorite, dolphins; sharks, oysters, jellyfishes and more. It never crashes or has any bug that i have experienced, just a little lag when loading the about me screen, but overall is great, with all the music and everything. I wish, though, in the future the makers would make a virtual version where you could take care of all those, since the app store deosnt have much like that. Great Job, Tap media.
