Ok, not great, couldn’t get it to work consistently

This app does have a large seleciton of desktops and screens to choose from, but I was primarily interested in a desktop based live weather app that I could keep on the top/right corner of my imac and place my other apps (mail, calnedar, etc.) around. The only desktop that I found after purchase that seemed to work for this purpose was the Beetle van screen, which allowed me to edit the location (but no other features) of the weather app to the right spot on my desktop.

This would’ve been fine and I would be still using it, but although the settings seem to allow for it, I couldn’t get the weather app to sit on top of my preferred desktop image instead of the beach scene (which is fine as an image, but far too busy for a desktop as far as I’m concerned). Also, I had to keep rebooting the app throughout the day as it wouldn’t stay on screen and I’d frequently return to my home screen and see the beach scene image with no weather on top.

So, I’ve moved onto another app and am giving this 2-stars. Not expecting to get my $4.95 back, but wanted to share this less than satisfactory experience.

Does not work! Don’t waste your money.

You cannot change the background, and the weather portion of the app does not work at all! Please fix!

Do not buy!

Does not work with Sierra. The clock hands are all over the place. Says it’s 77 degrees in NYC. Really? It’s actually 46 degrees. Do not buy. This thing hasnt been updated in over a year. Do not buy!
