Serene but technical issues
This is so beautiful and serene! The authenticity of the images are gorgeous! It looks so real and lifelike! I love it! I especially like the one with the sharks in it, which looks just like you’re looking through a glass wall into the ocean.
*** However, I only rated it 3 stars based on performance.
- I have 2 monitors, and it only displays on what the computer recognizes as the primary monitor.
- Only displaying on one monitor, it is useless as a screensaver for the additional monitors.
- Acting as a screensaver it doesn’t remove the menu bar, desktop items or the like in order to be used like a true screensaver.
- Having it on also disables the computers screensaver, which is still important when working with multiple monitors.
-- I would only be okay with this if it worked on all of my monitors.
-- If it worked on all of my monitors, this would even be desired.
- For the cost, I don’t know if I would buy it if I would have known about these issues and with only 3 screen options.
-- If they resolve these issues and add at least another 1 or 2 image options, I would gladly change my rating to 5-stars.
Desktop Aquarium is Fantastik
I purchased Desktop Aquarium over a week ago and I can say it is such a Fantastik app! The fish look so real, especially the sharks! It is so relaxing to watch, I leave it on for hours every day, the colors are so vibrant. I’m very pleased with this app.
This is an good app when viewed as a living wallpaper background, however I cannot seem to get the screensaver to start after a period of inactivity. It works as advertised when I manually open the app, but that defeats the purpose of using this as a screensaver when I have to step away from my computer for a period of time. I own the Living Wallpaper, Living Weather, Weather Dock, and Fireplace apps from the same company, and this is the only one that does not work as advertised. I’ve checked the settings in Preferences and nothing seems to work. As such, it’s not worth the price.
Get the trial first!
So this does exactly what it (mostly) says it does, it puts fish on the background of the primary display. I was a bit surprised to see it was made by someone just filming some fish, then looping that clip. I was dissapointed to see they didn’t get the exposure right, and the whites are blown out while other parts of the shot fade to completely black. There are also some depth of field issues where fish in the foreground are out of focus until they swim further back in the tank. It appears to work fine, but for $3 I was hoping for more than a poorly composed film loop of someone’s fish tank.
