Lacks some features

This is a really nice, minimalist app that does what it says. Great for screen recordings, which is why I bought it. Slick animation, cool drag/drop feature for selecting an image.

I do wish that the chosen background would stay in place in Mission Control, or when using commands like “Show Desktop” to push away all the windows with the trackpad. I have to be careful not to do these things when recording my screen.

Seems overpriced for what it does, especially considering that it doesn’t work in Mission Control or with multiple monitors. I don’t mind paying for good software, but $10 is more than I’ve paid for much more complicated tools.
