Editors' Review

Artdocks' Animated Fish Desktop Wallpaper is freeware that animates your desktop wallpaper with a realistic-looking tropical fish. The fish swims around your desktop in an overhead view like you're looking down into a pond. The program's own background image is a soothing view of water, but you can use the fish with your own wallpaper pictures, too.

Animated Fish Desktop Wallpaper can be activated from its desktop icon, a Start Menu entry, the system tray, or the program's Start Menu Folder, but not from the usual Desktop Background control on Explorer's Personalize menu. Opening the program let us click Yes to replace our desktop wallpaper or No to keep our current background image. The program's attractive, watery background image opened, and it wasn't long before the animated tropical fish swam slowly across the screen. We could change the background image normally without stopping the animated fish, too. A system tray icon let us pause or exit the program or access more animated wallpaper programs at the developer's Web site, but it offered no additional settings, such as the ability to alter the size and type of fish or its swimming speed.

Animated Fish Desktop Wallpaper is attractive, interesting, easy to use, and free. Its animated display even offers a kind of screensaver-like function by varying pixels. It's really quite pleasant and soothing, and much like watching real fish in a tank, it can help banish stress, too.

"It was exactly as described."

May 28, 2011  |  By missd10

 |  Version: Animated Fish Desktop Wallpaper 1.0

Pros

You get what you are told to expect.

Cons

I would have preferred a side view of the fish. Not as active as I would have liked and the addition of several more fish would have helped.

Summary

I uninstalled because I wanted more than was available.
