Editors' Review

The 3D Fish School Screensaver is an attractive way for users to transform their computer screens into burbling aquariums. The simple interface and realistic graphics make this program a pleasure to use, but the limitations of the trial version are a somewhat significant drawback.

The trial version of the software allows users to choose between one freshwater and one saltwater scene; the full version includes additional options. Users can customize such features as the number and types of fish, amount of bubbles, background, and lighting. The screensaver features both bubble and wave sounds, each of which can be turned off or adjusted independently. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate, and the graphics of the screensaver itself are fairly realistic and come as close to simulating a real aquarium as a computer program can. Multimonitor support is offered for users who wish to work and enjoy their virtual aquarium at the same time.

The only major drawbacks to the program are the limitations of the trial version. In addition to limiting users to two underwater scenes from which they can choose, the trial version of the software prevents users from saving changes to the program's settings. Trial users are also subjected periodically to ads encouraging them to purchase the program. The ability to customize the contents of the aquarium is one of the program's coolest features, so the limitations of the trial version are pretty serious. Still, the program installs and uninstalls easily, so even the limited trial version is worth trying.

Sale pitch pushed too hard in trial version. Too high of frequency of the reminder-screen prevented tester from fully evaluating the porduct and lead to its dumping from selection list.

"overall a good screensaver"

August 08, 2010  |  By dennislowes

 |  Version: 3D Fish School Screensaver 4.96.1

Pros

Very realistic fish and scenery

Cons

The trial version is useless since the window to buy full version annoyingly pops up every 5 seconds regardless of hitting the buy later button. These pop up messages give me great incentive NOT to buy the full version due to its frequent reminders.

Summary

only download if you are willing to buy it.
