    "Easy Install, Easy Interface"

    January 8, 2011  |   By carolee1124

    Version: Wallpaper Cycler Lite 3.6.0.180

    Pros

    The above says it all. Also lots of options for a free program and no interfering ads, popups etc.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    This does exactly what I needed/wanted plus gave me some options I never thought of--setting display for each individual picture, for one. It's very user friendly.

    "Not for the casual user."

    September 6, 2010  |   By buchster

    Version: Wallpaper Cycler Lite 3.6.0.180

    Pros

    Has many nice features, if you can find thru the blizzard of options.

    Cons

    The blizzard of options. It (or I) could only partially load 229 of 700+ images in the single folder I wanted to use. Not what I'd call a simple interface.

    Summary

    I was looking for a simple interface to randomly rotate wallpapers from a folder of 700 or so images I have collected for this purpose. This sounded very simple to do, but after partially loading the folder it stopped and gave me a message that I needed to navigate thru several menus to find a list of "exceptions" that needed to be deleted so that all the different image formats could be used. After several attempts I gave up and deleted wallpaper-cycler.. I have no doubt that this was my fault, but being a casual computer user I am simply not prepared to navigate, what seems to me, an overly complex menu of options. Several of the reviews including the CNET editor used words like "simple" & "easy". I think you folks are overestimating the computer literacy of a large swath of users.

    "Excellent, everything you could want is here."

    February 19, 2010  |   By reviewer28

    Version: Wallpaper Cycler Lite 3.6.0.180

    Pros

    easy to use, most used commands are in notification tray, options for everything you could possibly want.

    Cons

    nothing! Took a minute of searching to figure out how to make the program automatically synchronize with the folder/s of my choice, but not a problem.

    Summary

    I noticed the last reviewer said there were too many options, but the program installs with the options configured for normal use. If you take about 5 minutes to look through the options (yes there are a lot) they are very easy to understand. this program is configurable to any possible setup you could imagine, I absolutely love it. Every time i save a wallpaper it automatically synchronizes. I can choose whichever folder/s i want to monitor, or if needed you can of course turn these options off and synchronize manually. I especially like the icon in the notification tray, because it too is filled with options! you can change the wallpaper from right there. It doesn't seem to take up any of my cpu power at all. this is a wonderful program that i would pay money for. Thank you very much, i never thought it would be so nice and refreshing to have my wallpapers change.

    "Nice Wallpaper Changer"

    November 2, 2009  |   By youko_matsumoto

    Version: Wallpaper Cycler Lite 3.6.0.180

    Pros

    Fast and Light to the processor (0.05%).

    Cons

    -There's too many options or should I say the GUI is not user-friendly. Not good for non-average computer users.
    -Eats up to much memory for its process (26,660K).

    Summary

    Bottom line is, its still a Nice Wallpaper Changer.
