Product Review of Live Desktop

icon256

I came across the App ‘Live Desktop‘ a couple of weeks ago on sale for free in the App Store. Live Desktop is only one of the Apps produced by Halfbit. I decided to give the App a try since it was being promoted for free. The idea of the App is to create a dynamic wallpaper page that shows the time and weather. I installed the App and it worked . . . sort of. I use a multi-monitor configuration, and Live Desktop does allow for that. After installation I configured it for my location and chose a desktop to be displayed on each of my monitors. It worked . . . for a while.

Then suddenly I would have Live Desktop only on one of my monitors and it would be showing data for the wrong location. After I went through this a couple of times I gave up on the App. It is not one I would recommend. You might have more luck with it though if you are using only a single monitor.

Pros

  • Free
  • Configurable

Cons

  • Intermittently fails
