Beautiful and Hypnotic
First let me just say I'm running this on my iPad 3 and I've never had so much as a hiccup in the way of bugs or malfunctions. This is one of those really entertaining apps that also serves a practical purpose as well. Part screen saver, clock and weather tool all in one with a really fantastic audio component as well. It's a really fun and beautiful way to show off your iPad even when all it's doing is just sitting there, or while docked or charging. It's not only a feast for the eyes but the ears as well. The music is so good I would actually buy it separately. Ordinarily I'd say its worth between $2.99 and $5.00 bucks so it's a no brainer while its still free! You can't go wrong at that price. If for some reason it's not for you then just delete it.
So do yourself a favor and just get it. Especially while its
It would look nice on my TV... ;(
I understand the business decision to create and release a separate version of this app specific to the new Apple TV, but I don't have to like it. To be honest I have gotten little use out of the iPad version and if they had updated it to work with my new Apple TV then I would have been likely to give it a much higher rating as the content would have been simpler to share with others... After all, It is sort of inherently a TV app. But, I see absolutely no reason to spend more money on this app that I already own. It's just not worth it to me. They will likely claim a technical reason (developers oftentimes do) but I doubt that greatly... This is a quite simple app and I have already seen other much more complex apps that I own made fully universal. So I am off to give those developers rave reviews, and my thanks for doing what I feel is the right thing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
