Honest Review... Posted by

So, this is a very intriguing app, esp for $0.99…you get 10 scenes, I actually thought that it came w/20 scenes due to the way the devs list that on the middle screenshot, I guess I should have paid more attn to the IAP’s on the side, but they start at #13, so it still appears like you would get at least 12 incl w/initial purchase, so that kinda bummed me out a bit…the scenes are good (some have an obvious loop point (esp if you have the audio enabled, but I don’t use the audio feature at all), but they need more night scenes, like a city w/some vehicles/lights or a thunder storm moving in w/some lightning (believe me, people would love it)… Developers: some of these scenes are just too close, way too close & really need to be panned back, I love Lions as much as anyone, but I don’t want to see just his big head take up my entire desktop, it would be nice to see these guys in their natural habitat, pan it back & give us the landscape with it (the rain scenes also, too close)…also, it would be nice to have a different scene on each monitor for those of us who run dual monitors… A lot more themes were added in Ver4.0 & there is an “Unlocks” tab that will let you get 02 themes/ea. for free for a review, A Facebook or a Tweet for a total of 06 themes if you do all three...

Doesn’t support multiple desktops Posted by

The only critique I have at the moment (I just installed it on both MacBook Air and 27” iMac) is that it only runs on a single “desktop” (what we used to call Spaces, before Apple took those away from us). That’s probably not a deal-breaker for most (it might have been for me; still not sure), but as I’m constantly switching between desktops, depending on which app I’m using at the moment, it’s kind of a deal. However, since I do the bulk of my work on my iMac, and have my MacBook sitting right here next to me, Live Desktop serves as a nice diversion using just the one desktop on my MacBook. I look forward to more themes; the ones they currently have are nice, but I’m not sure how long they’ll hold my interest. A couple have sounds in the background (you can toggle these off if you prefer silence, or work in an environment where it might be distracting to co-workers) which makes it nice…for about 47 seconds, and then you’re feeling the urge to run to the restroom because of the constant sound of running water. Really no complaints about it after just a few minutes of operation. I would give it a solid 5-star rating if it worked on multiple desktops, but alas…it falls short in that one area.

Not too shabby at all…. Posted by

I’m not, at least usually not, a big fan of “live” CPU & Network, Intrnet apps, Especilly on a 2016 12” MacbooK with the new M5 Intel processor and the, pardon my assessment but let’s call a spafe a spade, the new “onboard” built in Intel Graphics core isn’t exatly a racehorse or a bulldoxer when it comes to graphics processing. Getting to the real point, this is the first “live desktop”, even going way back to the graphically, pretty nice “Aquarium” out of that that hasn’t hogged the bloody hell out of ther CPU and slowed this machine to a crawl. I realize that this is not the most layman’s explamation of saying that this “Love Desktop”, uses, at peak, about 10-11% of CPU time. Ot does apparently stay in memory while “active” using about 110 MB all the time, Similiatr to Path Finder, my finder replacement that I prefer BY FAR. All in all, I’d say it’s asthetically very nice and doesn’t drain the system and bring it to its knees. I’d bvuy it, well I did, and I’ll let it run untilI I see it makign a diference in a very low end machine.

Complements the Mac Posted by

Saw it first at Life Hacker, intrigued, downloaded & liked it. It even makes me want to organize & declutter my desktop to appreciate the beauty of the live wallpapers. The nature themes are better. Some of the free live wallpaper are not seamless; doesn’t loop well that one will notice the begining & the end of the clip. Otherwise it looks great on multiple Apple hardware, even older ones. Parents like it too on their old iMac. Probably would look great if it’s available on an iPad but there might be battery concerns. Also would be great if it can do multiple-monitor spanned theme/wallpaper feature.

Another Honest Review Posted by

I’ve tried other apps that claim to do the same thing and have been disappointed with them all. I have been a fan of animated desktops since I first experienced them in Microsoft Windows Vista (the sad thing about that was back then you had to pay a premium to get it), enough about Windows. When I saw this app was only $0.99 I didn’t have a choice but to try it and so far it is working as advertised without any issues, even on macOS Beta 4. The only complaint that I have and it really isn’t that big of an issue is how obvious the loop is on some of the themes.

It’s beautiful and only .99 w/ 10 Included scenes. Posted by

I love this wallpaper app it kind of brings the AppleTV screen saveer to the desktop of a Mac. -Some suggestions: --Higher resoulution videos like AppleTV screensaver. --Pan out and not so close on ones like the lion. --Get high qualiy drone views creating cityscapes or landscapes. This one especially beause drones can get some of the most amazing footage I’ve ever seen. But if your debating on purchasing… Do it! it’s only a buck and has ten great included backgrounds and if you want more those are .99 each.

Super COOL App and GREAT Support! Posted by

Downloaded and instantly amazed and delighted with the beautifully created and easy to use living desktop! I can’t see what they have in store for future updates! I contacted support once because of an issue I could not figure out by myself….and was wonderfully surprised that I had a reply within just a couple of hours!! Easy explanation and fixed instantly what I needed help with! Thanks for the App and the GREAT Support!!

Customer Service! Posted by

You know I was having problems trying to figure this app out and sent the company an email. Of course, I did finally firgure out that I needed to look at my menu bar. Duh! In the meantime they emailed me in record time and sent me a link of instructions. That alone deserves five stars to me. I appreciate good customer service. This app is very pretty, and I can barely wait to purchase some more. Thank you Live Desktop!

As fun as it seems. Posted by

I’ve had a colection of backgroud images I’ve collected over the years that I would cycle thru. That’s served me well for many years untill today. This app brings a fun (and quick) way to chnge to motion background images for your desktop. There are several avaliable and can be changed with a few mouse clicks. I’m so happy to have found this app and look forward to the devs making more images to use.

fun app Posted by

this is a fun app that adds a sense of whimsy to the mac. nicely done backgrounds and while not a must have, definitely a good addition for anone looking to add a little fun to the desktop after puchasing pack 1 I find that fireworks won’t run (play symbol with a slash through it) and husky doesn’t work at all. disappointing. update: quit and restarted the app and all seem to be working now

Best app I’ve bought in years Posted by

It’s not a technical utility, it’s not a game. But it’s still the best app I’ve bought in a few years. I have a stressful job and being able to focus on a calm waterfall or something is worth the price. The recent update adds multi-display support, which is great. The latest update plugs my remaining issues with the app. Love it. It helps keep me from beating users upside the head. ;-)

Seem like a very good app and easy on the resources Posted by

First thing I did was check cpu and memory usage, and it was much better than a similar app. I too, would like the lion and other animals a bit farther out and not so up close. It seems the new screen saver feature is keeping my computers from going to sleep. The good thing is, that I emailed support and they responded quickly and are working on a fix. Overall I really like this app.

Enjoy Just Staring Posted by

I’m enjoying watching my screens. I have dual 27” monitors and most of the animations appears nicely on both. The sounds are cute but need to be shut off every now and then when talking on the phone. As some others have noted, the clips are short, but this isn’t meant to be a movie. The nature scenes are easy to watch even when they repeat. All in all, a bargain for $0.99.

Naturally Beautiful Posted by

With all the hurry and stress that we have seemingly everyday this product for me is a must use. I find myself actualy taking a few minutes and closing my tabs and screens and just kicking it. Yes this product reminds you of the simple natural beauty that is probably right outside your door. So for us that just cant get off the computer this is perfect. Wonderful product, Thank You

Great app overall, just fereezes at the “processing purchase” screen so I cant buy any extras Posted by

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:)

This is so cool Posted by

I had one of these type of Wallpapers/Screen Savers on my Windows computer a number of years ago and loved it. This one surpasses that app by leaps and bounds. I love the sound and the different Wallpapers that are represented…Great App!!! I gave it only 4 stars because I would like it to go into the sleep mode after a designated length of time.

Great idea and execution, could use some tweaks. Posted by

I’m really enjoying this application. To get a few moments of serenity during the workday is well worth .99. My one suggestion to the developer is to use higher resolution HD video worthy of the retina display. The video (at least the pre-installed free one I’m using) is very compressed. Still worth it though.

Works as expected Posted by

App works as expected, but what I was most impressed with was the customer service. When I downloaded the app, it was missing the beach and wave live wallpapers. Within a few hours, they responded by adding them to the server for download.

Fantastic desktop backgrounds Posted by

Great “living” backgrounds that are more interesting than just a wallpaper. Great if you’re stuck in an office with no windows. My only wish is that they add password resume feature once it went to screensaver.

Awesome! Review for free unlocks Posted by

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!

3 Stars for Now.. Please earn the last two and fix the loop bug! by KG6EAR 2016-08-08

The software needs to be better buffered so there is no “stutter” or pause between the end of the video and audio loop and the beginning. Please improve this part of the program to make it much less annoying and more fluid like it is intended to be! A great idea is a read-ahead buffer or just put the whole clip resident in memory so there is no read-seek pause for a hard drive to relocate the beginning of the video and start playback again.. It should be continuous.. Heck even old versions of QuickTime made flawless video loops if you enabled clip caching for audio and video and set your loop markers right. This could instantly go from OK to great! with one little investment into fixing this problem! Until that’s fixed, audio is muted on mine, because I hate the ½ second pause where all audio drops out while it finds the beginning of the loop again...

Cool but incredibly demanding on CPU by nothappycustomer2017 2017-03-11

Pros: 1. Beautiful scenes Cons: 1. Demands a lot from CPU. I have a new Macbook pro with i7 and 16GB RAM (still my fan when crazy everytime I run this app). Will not use it at all. Wasted my money. 2. It does not support multiple monitors. Either I didn’t know how to enable it or the app can’t display different scenes on different monitors. 3. App continuously ask you to rate the app. If I paid for the app, why do I have to rate it? 4. It is unclear on the app whether the “Default” scenes is all that it is included on the price. I saw a tab called “extras” but I got I feeling that you have to pay for extra scenes. The app does not indicate a price per download or anything. That’s it, I like the idea but way too demanding on my computer. I can not work while my fan is going crazy trying not to over heat. Not worth it….sorry App Developer..

Good but could be better by Fezzywig 2016-07-18

Nice idea. However I feel it would be much more useable with a few more features. In fact if the developer would add these features I’d be will to pay more for this app. First it would be nice to preset a volume level. Currently the sound is either on or off. With a preset volume level it would be OK to have it playing softly in the background while working online. Then you can still have your online volume at a higher level. Second it would be nice to be able to cancel it with mouse movement like a regular screen saver. That way it wouldn’t be running around the edges of your browser window as a constant distraction. And finally a timer to turn it on after inactivity again like a screen saver. Still a worthwhile app for just 99 cents.

Nice but limited by kreeft234 2016-07-23

Firstly, Its a great idea and it works very well. Also a very sound marketing idea as each new theme is .99c - a greatly temptive price point. So both dev and customer win because you get enough to start but some will want to build out their collection of animated screens. Pros: Easy download, nice price, works well, most animations are pretty good quality, and they are not distracting at all. Cons: If you use multi-screen desktop on one iMac (one physical screen) and switch between them, this only loads and works on the first one. No independent sound control. What it needs right now: Independant sound control. What it needs to be fantastic: Multi-screen capability.

Does not work in Mac OS X 10.9.5 by Brainwave44 2016-07-03

When I open this application in Mac OS X 10.9.5, nothing happens. I have heard that Mac OS X 10.9.5 has a programming bug in it that developers have to work around, in some cases. Perhaps that is what is happening here. I paid my money and got nothing in return. And why don’t the Apple employees who check new applications for the APP STORE check each new app for this Mac OS X 10.9.5 programming bug? Makes you wonder how much they care.

Give me a break. by Uli-D 2016-07-20

I spend money in the App store. I do not mind. But this app is silly. Once desktop and the sound is horrible. Why do I loud horrible sound. It’t not my MacBook, have the latest Pro Retina. Besides, at my home office, I am connected via Bluetooth to Bose system. I removed it from my system, but I feel that’s not even enough. I wish I could remote it from my purchase history forever from the App Store and my credit card statment,

Does not work with Mavericks by anamorphica 2016-08-02

I bought and dowloaded this but it kept crashing on boot. While it is true that their tech support got right back to me about the issue, their answer was to upgrade my OS, which is not possible due to some other apps of mine that are not compatible with El Capitan. I wrote back asking how to completely uninstall it and and am still waiting for an answer. Don’t wanna sound like a jerk, but OS requirements should be noted.

Mute button does not work by SoulJahJay 2016-07-28

This is a fun app. It does use 5-7% processing power and for me personally and it heats my memory module in my 13” macbook pro to 135-139 degrees, which Im not thrilled about. I also noticed the volume button to MUTE the sounds does NOT work. I click it on and then off and hear sounds no matter what - I hope they fix this…..So as of right now I can only give 3 stars until the sound issue I mentioned is fixed.

Meh. I wrote a review and…. by 80's Kiddo 2016-07-29

I went to download my “2 free unlocks” and it only let me unlock one. I was going to say that I really like the fact that I can change the ambiance with my mood! It’s still nice, but I wanted one more unlock as promised. Some backgrounds are grainy and make it slightly poor quality, but if you are using a smaller screen (I have a 27 inch and a 13 inch dual monitor setup), then it looks a little better.

I installed it, tried it, removed it. by Frumious9 2016-12-31

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.

Only works on one desktop on one screen by Henrik Johnson 2016-07-05

This seems like a really cool app until I realized that the only screen/desktop where the animation is shown is the first desktop on the first screen. If they fix that I would give it 5 starts, but as it is now I’ll never see the animation because my first desktop on my main display is always covered by a browser window. :(

Loop continuuity by Greg Zenitsky 2016-10-20

Image and audio quality is pretty good and surprisingly, memory and CPU usage are moderate. Nice user interace. However the slight hesitation as the loop recycles is annoying and particularly so when audio is on. If this issue could be solved the app is definitely 5 stars.

I love it with one objection by JRMacumber 2016-07-30

I really wish the loop was longer than ten or so seconds. The stop and start in the audio is very distracting, which means I leave it off most of the time, defeating half the purpose. But, other than that, purely as a video animated wallpaper, I enjoy it very much.

Good Idea Bad Performance by Ali-Majidi 2016-07-28

This is nice but it has so many bug 1. too much memory usage 2. Short movie repeat every 10 second 3. When VLC play movie desktop show every 15 minute 4. high price , every theme new cost , why we bought the app 5. sound quality is bad tested on imac late 2013

It’s ok, could use more free desktops. by kula_jon 2016-10-20

It’s ok, could use more free desktops. Sound is “muddy” on my MacbookPro so I just turn it off. I have another one of these programs that is much smoother; renders in 4k. I’m pretty sure this one doesn’t. For 99 cents I’m not complaining too much.

THis App is trying to get stars by pushing you by Tabriz.Shams 2016-12-24

This app is trying to get you give them 5stars by forcing you ok guys it is not great app i tryed it and not great at all Pls do not download it, and do not wast your time on it thanks guys heads up that is all.:)
