Wallpaper Cycler Lite
Full user review
"Not for the casual user."
Has many nice features, if you can find thru the blizzard of options.
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.
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.
