"Interesting, but needs some fixing"

September 14, 2004  |  By Juande

 |  Version: Live Deskpicture X 3.0b18

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Just downloaded it, I think it's nice to have a look at it every now and then, lying under all open windows... but crashed on me on the first time I ran it, made Dock app spin up to 92% in Processes monitor and had to force-reboot because there was no way to get out of there.
Anyway if it gets fixed I'll give it another try.

"Best product of its kind!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Live DeskPicture continues to evolve and just gets better with each iteration. Contrary to earlier postings, it works fine with Panther, Jaguar and all the rest. All you must do is turn OFF "Change Picture every..." in your System Prefs so the System isn't fighting for your desktop.

When I was a young bank executive, coporate boardrooms used to have this wonderful -- and very expensive -- picture of the world with the actual sunlit and darkened areas reflected in the current local time. It was an impressive and dramatic display. Now it is on the Macintosh Desktop, and it is just as dramatic. When I show this to clients and explain that this is actually where the sun and moon are, actually where it is night and day right now, everyone is facinated. They want this! Do yourself a favor and try this for yourself. There are others that have tried to copy this package -- and added lots more features -- but none are as elegant (a word I use of the Mac OS and very little else).

"No Cinema display support?"

June 22, 2004  |  By nitricshrew

Summary

This works great on my powerbook for work but as soon as I try it on my 23" Cinema Display at home the program gives an error and quits.
This is using both my powerbook and MirrorG4 to run it.

"ugly"

Thank goodness I kept a copy of 2.04. This 3.0 version is ugly with a bunch of time zone lines all over the map that make no sense what so ever.

"Price is outrageous!"

Summary

I don't want to rain too much on your hard work, but the graphics are not pretty at all compared to the gorgeous geographical rendering of the competing (0$) program called OSXPlanet which also adds live cloud patterns, various other data, more view options, with the bonus of live-sunshaded 3D views of all the other planets. Charging for this program just isn't right when there's better stuff for free.

"Development stalled..."

 |  Version: Live Deskpicture 2.03

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I would be happy to pay an upgrade for:

  • Removal of the dock item
  • Proper screen saver module mode (ie as a screen effect)
  • Password protection option on screen saver
