Nice But Needs Work

I really like the app. Here are the issues that I hope developer will correct (would like to change rating to 5 star).

Pros:
Most themes have very low CPU usage.

Cons:
I contacted the developer but no response (hence the reason I'm writing issues here).
Temperature doesn't always update. It's 10:25 AM now and was last updated at 6:53 AM. It says it's 72 degrees and it's actually 93 degrees (Sometimes it updates, sometimes it doesn't).
In preferences I changed the wallpaper to a local image. When I run certain apps (Aperture, StarryNight Pro, for example) the default wallpaper appears. When I exit the apps the wallpaper I selected comes back after a few seconds.
Some themes, especially the custom ones, have VERY high CPU usage. Some go as high as 60%, I have a new quad core MacBook Pro 2.3 GHz 16 GB RAM.

Good value for the price

Nothing earthshattering, but the wallpapers are pleasing to the eye. The live part is some basic animation or clock and weather on top of a static background, but it works and its something different to dress up your desktop for a little while. I would like to see more dramatic animations, maybe something interactive, but I’m sure that would be more CPU intensive and expensive. Overall, worth a buy if you’re bored with your desktop and want to dress it up.

Excellent Aplication - a few simple suggestions

The app itself functions virtually flawlessly and looks wonderful! It would be nice if there were a simple way for users to create and share their designs, using custome wallpapers, with customizable fonts and widgets. Additionally, it would be remarkably convinient if there were an option to turn off Live Wallpaper whilst unplugged from AC power to prevent battery drain.

Great app, worth the money; thank you, developers!
