Love it

I have it on my wallpaper now. Love it. Can adjust the sounds of the wallpaper musics as well as the effects individually, both as wallpaper and screen saver. Very realistic looking except for when the water washes over the conch seashell. There should be bubbles or the water should be going around it instead of through it. You guys really should have just not let the water go up to it at all, the water also doesn’t look very real when going over the tree roots that are sticking up out of the sand. Again, if you had just limited the water washing up you could have avoided this altogether, a really simple adjustment, but it’s all good. I still enjoy it. Would have really knocked mysocks off if you had just limited the water waves so they wouldn’t go up to the shell and tree roots.

Reminds me of Belize

The artwork is stunning, and the scene reminds me so much of the beaches in Belize.

I like to turn up the volume so I can hear the waves throughout my house and pretend I’m living on the beach.

I can’t remember what I paid for it but it was well worth the price.

I agree with the reviewer who pointed out that the waves washing up on the conch and the roots don’t look very realistic. The developer should pull the waves back a bit. Otherwise, this is an outstanding screensaver/wallpaper app.

Love it!

Very nice animated desktop / screen saver that doesn't use too much resources. Would like to see a brighter skyline.
