Don’t buy if you have MacOS Sierra


I was modifiying which URLs I wanted to show on my desktop and suddenly, I couldn’t get Desktopr to activate again. I deactivated then reactivated. I tried quitting the app and then reopening it. I tried restarting my Mac. I tried deleting all of my URLs and putting basic websites in (Google, Facebook, etc). I tried turning on and off all of the settings. None of it worked. It remained inactive as if the app wasn’t even open in the menu bar. I consider myself a pretty technological savvy person, but I guess I’ll be using my generic default wallpaper as usual since there’s nothing that will make this program work again.

Love the Concept, Mostly Useless Execution


I bought Desktopr so that I could put my Google Calendar on my desktop and glance at it quickly, simply by using my "Reveal Desktop" hot spot. Since my Google Calendar is for personal things only, I wanted to assign it to my personal desktop/space in Lion and have my work space be something else.

But I can't do any of that. When I use the reveal desktop hotspot, Desktopr is hidden as well, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to assign it to a single space in Lion. It may be possible, but it's certainly not intuitive, and I can't find the answer anywhere on the internet. But the hotspot issue is the dealbreaker for me, since it means if I want to actually USE Desktopr, I need to hide every single open application. That defeats the purpose; it's easier to just keep a tab open for the calendar.

It's a fun program with a neat idea and an attractive interface, but it does absolutely nothing of what I need it to do.

I think I like this app, but...


I'm giving this app 4 stars. As with other reviewers, it will be worthy of my fifth star when multiple monitor support is added. I have a couple of issues though…

1) I'm stuck on a white screen. I attempted to point the application to a localhost file on my machine (that feeds from a DropBox folder) and it wouldn't open. I removed all of the other sites from the application settings and am now unable to get to the application settings when launching the app. My options when clicking the menubar icon are always [Activate Desktopr] or [Quit Desktopr]. No matter how many times I click [Activate Desktopr], I remain on a white screen with no new option to enter settings. I have uninstalled, rebooted and re-installed twice to no avail.

2) Both the [Developer Website] and [Desktopr Support] links above direct me to the developer Facebook page. I have no Facebook account and no intention to start one to receive support for this application.

(Yes, I'm the one guy under 50 who doesn't have a Facebook account. I'm a web developer and have plenty of friends - maybe it's my small way of being a hipster or something…)
