The reason for the absurd file size is due to absurdly bad design. The program stores all these "quotes" as hi-res JPEG files! The screen saver is made with iScreensaver, which if I remember correctly, makes it easy to package up quicktime movies/images into a shareware screen saver.

So essentially:
1. Use someone else's quotes.
2. Make hi-res images of the text of these quotes.
3. Use someone else's software to package these images into a screen saver.
4. Profit!!

My suggestion; go back to the drawing board with this one. Learn to use Xcode, look at apple's screen saver examples, and program it properly. A basic text-on-background screen saver like this should be a matter of a few hundred kb at most.

Heck, you could probably accomplish the same thing using Quartz Composer (included in the apple developer tools), not have to write a single line of code, and still have a small file size!

I like it. Simple and does what it says. But again, I love quotes. Worth the $5.

WHo care about the file size. 11mb's is nothing with high speed internet.

Anyway, about the app. I like it a lot. Been using it for about a day now. The quotes are very cool. I donated the $5 the developer asks for (you don't need to dontate) and he emailed me back a very nice email.

Overall, great screen saver!

How did a screen saver that displays 50 random quotes get to be 11.2 Mb in size.

Perhaps a couple of the random quotes are

1) The entire content of the Bible, Koran, and Bhagavad-gita

2) The complete works of Shakespeare

Another likely possibility is that it is RealBasic bloatware, but I am not going to spend 2 seconds downloading it to find out, let alone pay 5 bucks for the thing once I have it

Looks promising.. I'm experiencing difficulty in downloading though. The file gets cut-off after a while.
