    "Not for the casual user."

    September 6, 2010  |   By buchster


    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.
