Doesn’t Stretch out your Wallpaper *Updated*
So called “Pro” version doesn’t stretch out your existing wallpaper. My resolution was 2560x1440 which much more common now and my wallpaper’s dimensions are 3840x2160 so it should have no problems. The first thing that you see when you launch this “Pro” app is a warning say it doesn’t guarantee that wallpapers can be used. While I have no problem believing that to be the case in every single circumstance, I just have a feeling that this developers technical wizardry and aptitude for developing efficient algorithms falls short.
This has been corrected! Well done! You see, I knew you could do it after a good spanking review!!!
Great app, one tiny bug
App is great overall and does the job. There is one tiny bug though, if you use full screen apps with split screen, and if you turn on HiddenMe pro, the black bar in the middle separating two apps disappears and takes the form of desktop picture.
Also, when you switch between full screen apps, momentarily destop icons are visible before they go hidden again, however, I am guessing this is apple’s background app policy as it does not run too many apps in the background to save battery life, but annoying to have it when the mac is plugged in.
Right click not working . . .
I turned on the option to instantly hide my desktop if I click the app icon in the menu bar. Now I cannot access the menu with any key / curser combination - I’m locked out of changing the settings.
I emailed the developer both before the purchase with a presales question and then after about the issue. NO RESPONSE. There is no customer support for this app!
Additionally, if you have apps working in “full screen mode” and slide back to the desktop, the icons are there for a second before they disappear. Not an app I would recommend.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
