Why is there no mention above about no further development? From the WJ webiste:
----------------------------------------------------------------

Due to the ban interfaceLIFT issued to us and to the constant content change, we sadly announce that Wallpaper Junkie has been canceled. We hope you enjoyed it in it's short but eventful life !

I'd say 3.04 has become a stable version. I have never experienced any issues so far.

Thanks for fixing a variety of problems and keeping us up to date. :)

After upgrading it did only download empty jpegs but as suggested by the developer clearing the cache in the preferences resolved the issue.

Still crashes on startup. Thanks for all the effort you're putting into it though. I appreciate your hard work. Keep on trying, and thanks for the nice free program.

The rather big number of recent updates are due to interfaceLIFT changing some stuff. In WJ 3.04 we rewritten some handling code that should fix the download & crashes. If WJ still crashes, delete the cache & preferences. We hope 3.04 will be a stable release. Sorry again for any inconvenience.

As I understand it, there are 2014 (currently) wallpapers to 'choose' from. The default number available to view initially is 25. This can be increased in Preferences. I increased mine to 200, but the program takes a long time to load (in those images). If you choose 200, or the default 25, Wallpaper Junkie will display the LATEST 200 or 25. The only way to see all the older (first ones) is to select the entire 2014! If a new wallpaper is added, and if you've selected 25, you'll see the new one, and lose one. I guess that's called LIFO (Last in, First out).

In any case, I'm looking forward to 3.03. The crashes have stopped, let the downloading begin.

Just downloaded 3.03. Every bit of 2.02, including its extra support files had been deleted from this computer.

With 3.03, we've returned to crashing.

Wake me when 4.0 is released!

Sorry to say 3.01 still crashes on startup though it was alright yesterday. Seems to be unstable.

WJ Tool is of no help.

Wallpaper Junkie is still crashing! 1:15 PM CST today

After deleting the program earlier, including the files that Hazel found: Wallpaper Junkie.growlTicket, Wallpaper Junkie (folder), com.limiter-inc.WallpaperJunkie, and two Wallpaper Junkie crash reports, I downloaded it again (fresh copy) from here. It promptly crashed again.

One of my favorite programs, Wallpaper Junkie will have to remain OFF my computer until it's totally confirmed that it is SLeopard proof and stops crashing on take-off!

this version seems to have quite a problem. once I launched the app, it started making my screen flash. I had to quit the finder to stop it. then it would no longer launch. strange.

I think I know what happened. First, I had to erase the previous versions cache and prefs before I could even get WJ to run. Then, once it was running I couldn't just type into your prefs dialog. I had to hold the up and down arrows in order to change how many pics I could view. I also had to quit and relaunch every time I changed a setting in order to see the effect.

I run Isolator and it seems there was some conflict. Even after I uninstalled WJ Isolator would no longer run until I reinstalled it.

The new GUI may be incompatible with some desktop apps. Also, you can try deleting WJ with AppCleaner. This should get rid of all the files that may cause problems.

Thanks, I actually did manage to get the wallpapers I thought I would like from the 2010 you have. I do like the program. I do tend to like certain types of wallpapers, which of the many you have, I liked a select few.

Good Luck

It takes 2 clicks on the Quick Download button to get it to actually download a file. Also, it's a real time waster to have to click through all the individual pictures and having to click the download button for each one. It would be nice to be able to just download "ALL" files at one time, then go through all the files offline and delete the ones you do not want.
