What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Acess will let me know how the current functionality work on the clients' machines and what other features they would like to be added for updates. Besides, many other great features, such as multiple applications wallpaper, are in the development plan too.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“To the start of year 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have more features. It will have multiple applications running in the background of live wallpaper. It will support mouse and keyboard to help you play games in wallpaper. It will also support Mac OS. Great features requested by users would be developed too.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version can convert most of desktop applications to live wallpapers. It includes a window finder tool through which you can turn all kinds of things into live wallpapers, such as softwares like anime, games, videos, live streams, animations, 3d models and even emulators etc. You can watch movie/tv or streaming and play games as if you are playing a live wallpaper. It can hide desktop icons so you can use applications in wallpaper. You can directly play emulators in wallpaper using a controller without having to hide icons beforehand. Some multitasking scenarios become possbile in a new way. For example, editing documents on desktop meanwhile watching fullscreen movies in wallpaper.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of full vesion will be higher than the early access version since it would have more greater features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will carefully listen to my customers and accept their feedback from the community or via email. I will also quickly resolve any issues and fix bugs in time.”
