Actually this is not too bad. It's a good start that's for sure. Things like this might tend to get swallowed up by Dashboard in the future, how important that is I don't know, but this is a step in the right direction. The author is right when he says there is not enough fun pointless stuff for OS X, i tend to agree with him. OS X takes itself too seriously.

I would say at 10.50% CPU when running just on the dock is a little heavy possibly. The less the better would be...well better!

I think at this stage this app possibly should be free. And the author should look at extending this application into a more customisable animation widget, perhaps with some sort of scripted functionality to it so it could be useful rather than just pretty (perhaps you click on the sprite and checks your email or downloads something for you etc)...

I know there is some ability to customise anyway when you register but a 'pro' version could use more options, like set the scale of graphic if floating, set a number of sprites, perhaps set how CPU instensive it will be etc.

good start though and I think the author is on to something. that is my constructive feedback

This is a joke right?

I've seen better, pointless apps for FREE... and here you are wasting time trying to make your app more secure from "crackers"? Put your time into fixing up this app instead, would be my suggestion...

sheesh...

Are you kidding me?

A) Who would BOTHER to crack this?
B) Why would you tell everyone "Hey if you want to hack this make sure you use a pervious version".

This update is bizarre... Am I in the twilight zone?

this app is pointless, you're correct. its hilarious too but it'd be cool if it had an aqua-look and the bowl contents could be changed without a small $2 registration annoyance dialog.

Well I dont know if I'd say its completely pointless. I have found several uses for this application.

1. Clicking on the fish makes him eat. When he does this he makes a rythmic "click click click" sound. Clicking on the fish in the proper interval allows you to play a song. Well, more of a rythem than a song. Well, more of a looping "click click click" pattern. But its sort of like a song.

2. Keeping the fish bowl behind your buddy list makes it easy to hide your open list from bosses with a simple click bringing the bowl to the front.

So I'd say its a steal at $2.

Could be worth it with better graphics. Now it's just pointless.
