Editors' Review

This wallpaper and screensaver hybrid gets points for ingenuity and points for effect as photorealistic snowfall dots your desktop. You'll find SnowFall Living Desktop listed in the screensaver tab of your display menu. Yet you tweak the settings from the icon that's active in your task tray. Select from of of eleven frosty backgrounds, then adjust wind speed to create a light snowfall or blustery conditions. Then, sit back and enjoy the powder drifting onto your desktop.

"Nice but could have been better"

December 24, 2008  |  By benjamin7531

 |  Version: SnowFall Living Desktop 2.1

Pros

Does what it says one the tin, enjoyable snowfall

Cons

Occasional hic-ups, where the software doesn't work, and technically there is still areas for improvements.

Summary

There is a shadow on every most things that pops up on the windows e.g like icons, and it starts to bug me a lot especially when you have a white snowy background that looks great, but when you have the living desktop on, it looks AWFUL, perhaps this only exist in demos but such a shame, and i have such a high expectations, but to say the truth i expected a lot more though.

"OMG Awful!"

December 17, 2008  |  By GTiManDan

 |  Version: SnowFall Living Desktop 2.1

Pros

It could be good if someone legitimate created it

Cons

Upon installation, it opened a browser window that my AV software stopped from proceeding any further. App never worked - held my CPU at 94-99% capacity while it was doing absolutely nothing at all. PC wouldn't work at all.

Summary

Horrible. Absolutely dismal. I rarely install anything at all "free" on my PC since I like to keep it running in tip-top shape. I made an exception and regretted it. What an utter piece of craptastic garbage. It looked like it was trying to hijack my browser right off the bat. Download needs to take this one down - I'm surprised they recommended it at all.

"Excellent Product"

December 17, 2008  |  By paul2706

 |  Version: SnowFall Living Desktop 2.1

Pros

Does what it says on the box, downloaded it for my daughter she finds it a calming influence after a few hours of hectic studying

Cons

Non that I can think off, it didn't work on a lower spec machine so I think it is fair to say this is a high end application.

Summary

General all round product which has really good graphics, one fault is that it cannot be used as a screensaver
