Purchased the app, installed it, opened it and it changes my desktop to a spiraling galaxy. That is all it did at first. There is no interface to make any changes. There are no menus, There is nothing but a new desktop which changes back to the static picture I had set before installation upon restarting.
Had to go to their website to find this….
No icon appears in the Dock for Mach Desktop. Instead of that, a desktop icon shows up in the Status Bar near the top-right of the screen. Click on this to bring up a menu, in which you can start/stop the desktop animation, customize preferences, and quit Mach Desktop.
All is well.
Useful customizations. Provided Desktops are not color balanced very well (some are washed out or flat and lifeless) but worth the price at 2.99
