Comments and Ratings for Live Desktop - Animated Live Wallpapers and Themes

Paid for the “all themes” option but only got some (4.1)
18/02/2017 05:01:00 3/5 By PromaneX
Plumped down the £9.99 for “all” themes but its still asking me to pay for some of the default ones.

Awful app, I want a refund (4.1)
24/11/2016 00:57:00 1/5 By catpower80
Downloaded this a few minutes ago and now my backgrounds won’t work AT ALL. This app is not only awful, but it has potentially damaged my OS Sierra macbook. I WANT A REFUND

Like it! (4.1)

Even some of the free clips are great!

Very Poor (4.1)
15/11/2016 16:45:00 1/5 By Jon0149
The application works in theory but dont be fooled, the animated backgrounds are very low quality and last only a few seconds before an obvious video restart. The looping is obvious and distracting. Nice concept, poorly executed. Obviously a huge battery drain. Don’t buy.

One of the best live wallpapers (4.0)

This app is amazing! Easy to use. Highly recommend. Worth to spend though.

Nice app easy to use, would like the option to span over two monitors rather than the same picture diplayed on the two displays.

good app (4.0)

love it brings you iMac to life

A good app that could be even better (4.0)
06/09/2016 16:04:00 4/5 By Stevingo
I like it and it runs well on my 2013 iMac. I am not aware of it taking up lots of memory or cpu resources so thats a bonus. It would be nice for a better price to by all the videos as I’m not that bothered about a handful of them. One feature that would be really good is that the app remembers what speed you want your videos to play at because i have to set it again every time i reboot my mac. another great featrure that would encourage people to engage and get more involved with the app would be a feature to be able to add your own videos so you could have a home movie of the kids doing something cute in the background, etc :)

Fun yes, battery friendly? I’m not so sure (4.0)
06/09/2016 01:18:00 4/5 By James Delaney
Resource wasting tools like this are nice once in a while and although I don’t run this the majority of the time it is nice every now and again. A change is as good as a rest as they say. It would be better value if more videos were included - and if some of those videos could be a little less distracting. e.g. the water running down glass is could be much more restrained - steam condensing into the odd rivulet here and there might be more useful. Apart from that, this doesn’t really do my battery any favours and the fan on my Late-2012 MacBook Air kicks in almost immediately. One for when on mains power I think. Download it, waste a little cash and a few system cycles. What’s the worst that can happen?

very intriguing app (4.0)

very intriguing app

Pleasant distraction (4.0)
22/08/2016 02:47:00 5/5 By AdePCox
As my title suggests it is pretty gorgeous to look at and so I fear that if you have just purchased one of the many anti distraction apps on the AppStore you probably shouldn’t have bothered as you will just want to try another theme… and then another… and another :) That asside the app is really easy to use and thus far isn’t appearing to hit performance of anything else in an obvious way. That’s a good thing because far too often it seems to be a trade off between beauty and speed when it comes to these types of app. The themes supplied are a good enough spread to get you going and from a glance at the “In App Purchases” note on the product page others seem reasonably priced I guess. OK so maybe I don’t sound so convinced of that last statement. I find it difficult in these days of austerity to justify some in app purchases, not that these are a rip off, they most certainly are not. I just have this concern about the ongoing cost that mounts up to a horror story if you aren’t paying attention. £0.99 doesn’t seem much considering the work that has gone in to the product, but they are obviously wanting you to buy many more and before you know it you could have easilly spent a lot of money. That said you can buy the lot for £7.99. Anyway, overall I like Live Desktop and I feel sure it will live on my menu bar for a long time to come.

OK but a little lo-res (4.0)

OK but a little lo-res

Default purchase is….Ok. (4.0)
11/08/2016 15:19:00 3/5 By Capricorn One
I’m a bit disappointed by the very low resolution live wallpapers you receive with the initial purchase. There are quite a few additional live wallpapers available via in-app purchases but they are all pretty much the same. I.e.: Cute young animal sitting in grass doing not a lot. Kittens, ponys, ducklings….that’s about it. There are a few 4K ones that do look okay but still not very exciting. We need some proper exciting live wallpapers please and they should be HIGH DEFINITION at the very least. And by the way. This app is advertised as being designed for optimal power consumption etc etc, but I can tell you, my fans come on within 1 minute of the app opening so I strongly disagree with the claim of it not consuming ‘much’ additional battery power.

very nice! (4.0)

Very pleased! (4.0)
08/08/2016 01:21:00 5/5 By William Tell the truth
I have had older versions, but there was always something a little lo-res about them. This is very nice on my biiig monitor, and the scenes are 1000% better. Recommended - Also, less of a performance hit this time around.

Great quality! (4.0)

Easy to use, convenient top of screen on/ff and selection icon. I can flick between my on screen piccies and the moving scenes from the app. Good selection too included in the price.
