A very nice utility, though perhaps needs few more things. But truly a lot of value for free and fun little doohicky. And as to whining about interfaces, etc., MacHeads need to pull their heads out. It's a multiplatform world, and Macs are not the majority that they think they. Any developer willing to do crossplatform work for free deserves a little respect for trying, keeping at to refine the work, and keeping it free on top of it all.

Yes, Wally's interface is a bit obtuse, but it didn't take that long to figure out, and it in terms of functionality, it does what it says and I've really enjoyed using this program and have discovered dozens and dozens of great images I've been able to download and add to my own desktop image collection.

I see this as an image exploration tool; it's fun; I get to learn about amazing new images, and I've not had any stability problems with it. I like it! And it's free. I would definitely recommend this to friends, and have.

More Linux shovelware, with a wretched interface, no native integration, and dubious purpose - but hey, it works with a dozen window managers and desktop environments, NONE of which exist on the Mac!

Seriously, why does this kind of crap even show up on MacUpdate? I'm sure we'll now also be inundated with every-couple-days point releases as well...

Very "Windowsish" GUI. Also, does not seem to be a way to select image folder/files from an externally mounted volume. Weird.

If you like to have random desktop backgrounds, be it from your own disk or from the net: this is the application you need. It does what it promises. If you miss something, the author is very helpful.
Best of all: available for major OSs.
One thing I would like to see: availability to efficiently handle very large collections (more than 100k images) with the local disc module, maybe via using spotlight on Mac.

Hmm, I've downloaded this three times, and tried to install, but it gets all the way to the end, past validation and writing files, and then just says the installation failed..but no explanation.

Anybody else able to install 2.4.2? I'm running OS 10.6.8 on a duo-core iMac.
