    I've been pretty happy with this app. Some of the pics that they've used have been breathtaking; most of the rest have been quite good; but here and there there's been some that actually have me scrambling to display one for my old saved copies of personal favorites for the rest of that day. Other than that, the app itself seems to work just fine. I haven't noticed any problems with it at all. Nice job guys. =)

    Gave me a bit if hope. The app market for windows is so terrible so this was a gem to find
