not compatible on Mac OS X El Capitan...

by Martin on November 29, 2018

I like the concept, but the animation for the flames is rather fast, which makes it fairly unrelaxing to have on the screen. The point of having a fireplace screensaver instead of, say, a waterfall or moving geometric shapes, is so that it can double-duty as a relaxing image to watch. As this one moves fast enough to induce mild anxiety, I'd say it meets only half of its goals. There's no option for 2.5 stars, so I'll round up to 3.

It's nice but I don't really like the logos at the bottom

by River on September 20, 2018

No sounds, even tough their is a speaker icon for sound adjustment in the screensaver HUD.

great

by bashar on March 1, 2017

I love it. I prefer quiet screensavers like this because I often fall asleep watching something on my computer, and loud screensavers wake me up. I think the flames are good just the way they are.

by Margaret on February 1, 2017

nice screensaver but there are no sounds to it

by skystorm on January 18, 2017

This screensaver is very realistic and I like it a lot. The only problem is that it crashes after a awhile...will not keep running.

by Viv on January 3, 2017

Flames are moving a bit too fast and there is not crackling sound. It would be really nice if you slowed it down to be more realistic and added the crackling sound.

by Toni P on December 29, 2016

Looks great, but sound doesn't seem to work in Windows 10. Knocking off a point because the sound of crackling flames really adds to the effect.

by Allen Lindgren on December 21, 2016

I think it's beautiful and gives off a warming affect

by Sharon on December 16, 2016
