This is a great wallpaper and all of my friends think it looks wonderful too. I especially love that you can choose from various different moving wallpapers! 😍Would definetly recommend!

Great app overall, just fereezes at the “processing purchase” screen so I cant buy any extras (4.1)

This is a great app overall. Just has a bug when trying to buy extra backgrounds. It wont let me buy any extras walpapers because it freezes at the “processing purchase” screen and wont go any further. It did this on my 2011 macbook pro and now it on my new 2016 macbook pro. So its not the computer. No problem, that just means you cant sell me any more backgrounds:)

I installed it, tried it, removed it. (4.1)

Meh. It’s OK if you have nothing better to do than look at moving, looping wallpaper. It got boring very quickly. If you need to concentrate on your computer work, you might find it annoying. Each scene is accompanied by ambient sound which you can turn off. Be aware that running Live Desktop takes up a considerable amount of your CPU’s capacity, just how much depends upon the scene.

THis App is trying to get stars by pushing you (4.1)

This is great and works as promised. The additional desktops come at a more than reasonable price considering the quality. I don’t get hung up trying to catch the loop. Most important, their customer service, even for simple questions is very good, and fast.

Awesome Idea - But very buggy (4.1)
11/16/2016 2:29:00 PM 3/5 By Thuston
This is a great idea, but it is very buggy! The video background sound randomly comes on when working on your computer. Very awkward if you don’t have headphones plugged in and you’re in a public area. Also, the backgrounds are not HD. They don’t look good on a large monitor. Overall, it is a great app that I’m sure will improve. It is important to note that you need to pay for the app AND pay for backgrounds if you want more than the few that come as defaults.

Great App (4.0)

Love this app - it really can be soothing and mesmerizing. Love the ability to change the scenes and get new ones. Developer continually adds new ones so things never get old.

Good (4.0)

I love this app. The only thing is I would like a fireplace theme. I reviewed and rated this app but unable to get the two free themes as promised :/ Waiting on the new update that will fix the free unlocks!
