Tranquil App, Love it!!


I really like this app. I use this app often, I have ibooks on my macbook pro, I enjoy reading with the fish swimming in the background.
I get lots of comments on it when I am out with my computer. for those who like a bit of tranquility this is the perfect app.
I do not find it very distracting as the fish are realistic and move with respect to the motions of a fish. My favorite
scene is the short tank. The presence of the sharks just gives the scene a little majestic appeal. Does not make my computer
run hot like I thought it would, can use it all day with not stress on my laptop. You will not be dissapointed in this app.

Screen Saver?!?!?!


This is an good app when viewed as a living wallpaper background, however I cannot seem to get the screensaver to start after a period of inactivity. It works as advertised when I manually open the app, but that defeats the purpose of using this as a screensaver when I have to step away from my computer for a period of time. I own the Living Wallpaper, Living Weather, Weather Dock, and Fireplace apps from the same company, and this is the only one that does not work as advertised. I’ve checked the settings in Preferences and nothing seems to work. As such, it’s not worth the price.

Pretty Poor


Was expecting a lot more for the cost. This app should be free. It comes with three screens to choose from, none of which are customizable, all of which the fish are blurry. I have an amazing 5k monitor, so I know it’s not my screen.

Also, there is no screensaver. Despite advertizing this, the app does not come on when my machine goes inactive, even though I turned off my regular screen saver.

This was poorly slapped together is not NOT worth $3. Pass!
