Very Cool! Works for me on 10.8. Could use broader contrast range... - This is simply awesome. I love it as a screen saver and wish it had more features as a standalone app (like outputting a text file with the image for other uses or a way to take still frames) BUT my biggest complaint is the contrast. Even set at lowest contrast, it leaves large, dark gaps in the image. I can see why the afircan american reviewer was frustrated. Still, I HIGHLY recommend this, and would have happily paid a couple of dollars for it. OH, and BTW, I'm using OS X 10.8 and have no issues with it.

$1 to enter the matrix… done! - This screensaver is great, it just works like you’d expect.

Review by KidCastingCo

Cool, but has conflict issues - So, this app will not work if you have certain plug-installed. I had to manually remove iGlasses.plugin AND CamTwist.plugin from Library->CoremediaIO->Plug-Ins->DAL to get the app to work. That just isn’t practical (too much trouble). The simple soluation would be a preference so that the user can select the camera so that Textify Me doesn’t (for whatever reason) opt for both incomptible drivers.
