The original video was out of focus so appeared lower in quality than it should be.
pretty good but not great
I don't like the slight pauses between loops. It's irritating and I know it can be done better. I think there is still too much backgroud noise pollution (hiss). It can be fixed with simple EQ technology, just make the effort to do it. Otherwise the sound is great and the video is very nice, except for the nearly intolerable pause in the loop. Loops could still be longer, I mean, how hard IS it? I think a couple of the pans are too far out. I'd rather see more of the fire burning than the outside of the fireplace. Crackling is nice, overall a nice app with great potential; needs an update to fix a few issues. I would recommend it (talk it up) if just a few modifications were made. Please work on it and give us an update, I would give it a 5 star rating if you fixed these few issues. Like I said, a lot of potential to become a standard app. just work on it a little more. :~)
small package, great delivery
There are alot of fireplace apps out there, and I've downloaded half a dozen of them over time, but this one caught my eye. yeah, it doesn't look like much, and you only get 3 visuals, however it really doesn't matter. Clarity is a big game changer when vewing any app on a large monitor. The 1080p video qualty is what a fireplace app should be and this one delivers. Not bad for .99. heck not bad for a few more dollars. If what you are looking for is a visually stunning, picture perfect mood changer, than give this a try. like I said, "small package, great delivery"
Overall this is an awsome app, I found you can resolve the popup issue when using a 2nd monitor by clicking Fireplace App -> About Fireplace App, It dosent accually bring up the about page but it prevents the popup untill the next time you click on the fireplace screen. Also you can click on spaces in the dock (because the hot corners are disabled).
I would consider adding the ability to change sounds (but keep the one you have now) however it would be nice to give it a bit more of the deep roar you might expect from a fire this size.
