Still fantastic after many years!

I have been using this app for many years now. I love the time lapses and the scene control so much. The unique method of presenting the time lapses offers so much more than videos would.

I just got a new iPad and when I plugged it into an external monitor for the first time (via usb-c to HDMI) Magic Window automatically displayed a beautiful scene on the monitor and a control center for the view on the iPad screen! I am just blown away.

If there is one addition that I wish for it is higher resolution scenes to take advantage of the full resolution of modern iPad monitors and large external displays. If the original files are in higher resolution and updated versions could be re-exported, I would pay more for higher resolution versions as an add-on - this app deserves more of my money!

Truly Beautiful

Beautifully captured scenes from all over the world generate feelings of peace and calm almost as good as the real thing. It’s not always easy to get out and into nature but this app can make you feel as if you have visited that part of the world in person. The audio/video can be used alone but together they are very effective for relaxation which in turn improves focus.

It’s a great way to take that ‘time out’ and re-center in the middle of a busy day and equally valuable, for different reasons, at home and the office. Bonus the different packages are reasonably priced and there is a nice variety all in HD which is especially glorious on an apple display.

Peace and relaxation Second Review

I’ve had this app since 2011. This helped me after being sent to Walter Reed after being wounded. This was my best relaxing tool and I used it every day.

Everything in this is top notch by far. The support is the best I’ve seen. I had some problems that had nothing to do with them. Yet Josh helped me and took time to make sure everything worked to what I needed.

You will not regret buying this. Everything they make is excellent quality and is as advertised and then some.
