"In Greek, 'nostalgia' means 'pain from an old wound.'"

March 08, 2012  |  By desktopia

 |  Version: Flying Toasters Screen Saver 3.1.0

Pros

Love the nostalgic quality. The options are nice. It's close enough to what I was hoping for, and I'll probably keep it as my default screensaver for a while.

Cons

First off, the most glaring thing is that the toasters come from the left. In AfterDark, the toasters came from the right. With so many options, you'd think this would be one of them.

I agree with the previous reviewers that the quality is low. I'm not exactly sure why the toasters are lower quality than they were in AfterDark 10 years ago.

Also, the density settings aren't very accurate. The bread and toasters don't seem to cross your screen at an even rate.

Summary

I wouldn't necessarily recommend anyone use this if they were looking for a Flying Toasters replacement a la AfterDark, but I do recommend that you try it out and see if it works for you.

"I don't like it at all!"

October 11, 2010  |  By bsii

 |  Version: Flying Toasters Screen Saver 3.1.0

Pros

Can't think of anything.

Cons

The options simply don't work on my core 2 duo iMac. I set number of toasters to one and there are hundreds. The quality isn't up to standard. I set it to slow and it's fast???

Summary

it just doesn't work on my machine as advertised.

"Should I have my toast lightly brown or Burnt? LOVE IT!"

August 29, 2010  |  By markeymark69

 |  Version: Flying Toasters Screen Saver 3.1.0

Pros

Love being able to create my very own screen saver based on how many toasters and pieces of toast I want on my screen along with the speed.

Cons

Can't really think of any. (maybe allow for different kinds of toasters in a magnitude of colors

Summary

If you want a fun and fabulous screen saver, this would be the perfect thing.

"Love the retro feel of this screen saver"

June 19, 2010  |  By rgunther

 |  Version: Flying Toasters Screen Saver 3.1.0

Pros

I've been looking for something reminiscent of After Dark's classic Flying Toaster's screen saver for a while now. This brings back the memories while bringing it up to date.

Cons

Cons? What cons?

"Tune and Jam"

November 30, 2006  |  By jon33

 |  Version: Flying Toasters Screen Saver 3.0.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Where has the music gone that butiful music i thought I would be singing the words to the song that brought me so much joy back in the old days on my macintosh performa!!!. (and its clap clap clap salvation from above the prescious gift they bring gleaming angles of love...........) i could go on.

Also the lack of jam on toast is sad please guys bring back the jam bring back the songs.

The toasters can be changed from there new blue look, back to the old silver though wich is a bonus.

Come on guys we can bring back the tunes jam and butter.!!!!!!!!

"Preview OK"

 |  Version: Flying Toasters Screen Saver 2.1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
but Flying Toasters are grounded when Screen Saver is activated (the Toast is toast, too.) So sad that another bit of nostalgia is denied reincarnation.
