The photo on this page looks like it's from either Arches Natl. park or
Canyonlands, Utah. I used to live in Moab. It looks better in real life. For about the same price as this screensaver, you could probably travel there.

I loved it ... Put some mellow music on, this visualizer and I was out! Got an upgrade notice for a week time limit of $15. Whoa! Half of the original cost and no changes except a fix when an iTunes update breaks it. Shame these people are so greedy. Well I have dropped this visualizer. WhiteCap expires soon and I am sure that they will want at least $15 to upgrade, so I will be dropping WhiteCap next. However, when G-Force comes up for renewal I will have to hem and haw (really cool visualizer) until the grace period expires ... then I will drop it. A lot of good stuff coming out of developers these days and most are not greedy. Bye!

Yawn...a rather uninspiring dud, imo, and dreadfully overpriced. Just not very interesting. Esthetically, two thumbs down.

While the cloud theme is pleasant, it's just not all that interesting. Most of the features in the trial version are blocked, making a full evaluation impossible.
But, I can say without any hesitation, even with crippled trial version, SoftSkies just isn't in the same league with the brilliantly designed G-Force, which is always fascinating.
As a previous reviewer stated, SoftSkies isn't worth the $20 or $30 cost, while G-Force is.

Agreed. There are more interesting FREE screensavers out there and GForce is worth the cash.


Doh! I meant to say "visualizer" and not screensaver.

I think you're missing the point, bro. SoftSkies is the opposite of G-Force: mellow, subtle, chill vs. psychedelic, wild, etc. If I was running a viz shop, I'd do exactly that: create vastly different products that appeal to totally diff peeps. My 2 cents.

Sorry, but I'm afraid that SoftSkies just isn't all that interesting as a visualizer.
While G-Force, from the same developer, is incredibly unique and wonderful, SoftSkies is, merely, pretty pedestrian. While there are numerous settings to change the forground, background or colors, its still just clouds passing across the sky....I lost interest in it pretty quickly.
And at $20 for the Gold, and $30 for the Platinum edition.....the same as for G-Force, there's just no way I'd pay those prices for SoftSkies....it's definitely overpriced. And I think that the $20 or $30 for G-Force is well worth the money.
While I was, and still am, overwhelmed and awed by G-Force, SoftSkies is totally underwhelming.....it just leaves me feeling cold and disappointed.
I guess I'd have to say that it's somewhat of a turkey.
