Great App, Does not work with multiple desktops

This app is really a great app that let’s you change your desktop wallpaper to some more live and beautiful ones.
First of all, the “live” effect is really cool and goes very well with the wallpapers included in this app. This effect really blends in your wallpaper and sometimes I don’t even notice it is there.

My only problem with this app is that for users like me that like using multiple desktops, this app is not really working well. I though this app would allow me to have one live wallpaper per desktop but it appears that I am limited to only one wallpaper for all of my desktops. I have the possibility to remove the “live” effect and therefore have a different wallpaper for each of my desktops but this option removes the point of buying this app. I hope that I am not the only one with this problem and I hope that someone knows the answer for this issue. Please fix that in a near update, I would highly appreciate that.

Needs work

Great concept and value, however for those who are very attentive or want fluidity, this app needs some work. The title is a bit misleading, as the background images are not all animated, rather they include animated elements like a weather widget or clock. Those that are animated are poorly animated and show frame lag, even on high end Macs. This is evident with the Nebula and Polar clock themes. I like the idea of live wallpaper, but if the implementation is not fluid and streamlined, it is not worth it.

Also I have noticed that when the app is quit, it does not revert back to your old wallpaper and instead leaves the image from the theme you were using before the app was quit.

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.
