This program crashes constantly. The image looks great but only allows me to view pictures by hitting the left arrow. If I hit the right arrow, it crashes. I have tried for days but cannot find anyone who supports the product. I am using the latest Yosemite on in iMac 27.5 Retina Display.

I really like the idea of a simple no-frills, drag-and-drop image viewer with either thumbnails or full frame. But this crashes constantly on my Mavericks MBP. Stepping from image to image using the arrow keys crashes it every time. Using the mouse scroll wheel or UI buttons works fine though. I find the UI often crashes leaving an empty black panel with no images visible. I have to quit and restart the app to fix this. Also usually crashes when switching to thumbnail view. Would also prefer if the open file dialog didn't open automatically on start-up (I like to drag and drop) It seems very unstable - is this just a OSX 10.9 issue?

It's definitely just a viewer - not good for anything else, not even renaming. You gotta love keyboard shortcuts to love this app, and I don't. The toolbar only has basic functions, you can't even rotate or trash a file unless you use a shortcut or do it from the menu. Only 7 preferences that don't offer any real customization. I HATE not having a sidebar with thumbnails visible ALL THE TIME. There's no fast way to jump to a specific image in a full folder. I also don't like the hiding toolbar - although it appears quickly, it still takes longer to press a button than if if were always there (should be a preference). JustLooking offers more features (including resize, rename and a thumbnail window) and is FREE. It's not perfect, but better - it offers a bunch of preferences and can be set to replace Preview as the default image viewer. https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/23377/justlooking Only tested this briefly on 2 folders, so I can't comment on stability, but since I must provide a rating I'll give it a 5 since I didn't see any negative comments about crashing or freezing.

Hmmm. Promising alternative to my current image viewer sequential. For now, sequential beats Viewer hands down when it comes to both speed, stability and functionality, but sequential doesn't seem to be updated anymore, so therefore i'm looking for alternatives. I really think Viewer has potential though. It's minimal, simple, looks rather ok (it falls short of being beautiful though) - just what i look for in an application. But, for now, it doesn't have what it takes to become the default image viewer, at least on my computer. Cons (IMHO, of course): - HUD instead of a proper main window. It's not wrong, just look weird. - Doesn't remember (or keep) previous window size and position. - Sometimes opens up obscured by (overlaps behind) the dock. - All animations are jerky/laggy (Quad + 6750m iMac) - Thumbnail mode in fullscreen has no pointer to select with. - Zoom is rather clumsily implemented, and not very smooth. - Perhaps it's too minimalistic (never thought i'd say that)!

For some reason, all my images look kind of blurry with this application. In addition to this, the window doesn't resize when browsing multiple images with different sizes. Back to Xee.

Since there isn't a demo, just wondering if the slideshow feature has different transition effects? Specifically, a pan/zoom or Ken Burns like effect. I'll buy a copy happily if it does! Thanks!

I don't know about developers publishing phony reviews of their own products (happens all the time!) in this case, but this product has NO Trial Downloads! This should be totally discouraged. No way I am just plopping down cash without checking out an application first. Boycotting such developers helps us all in the long run, and it is going to be a sad day for the Mac community of people end up on the Apple AppStore encouraged to sell products without providing this critical process of FREE evaluation. I'd love another good thumbnails browser (like ViewIt!) but if I can't check it out first I am highly suspicious).

This app keeps getting better and better. I really like the new redesigned interface. However, I do feel that a preference option to start in full screen is missing. Overall, great job!

Ok, bought this app on the heels of two things: 1) it seemed, by the screenshot on the MacUpdate page that this app allows batch viewing of images & 2) that it will play animated GIFs. As of this for number one, I cannot get this to work. I browse to folders that I want to view or try to select all within a folder that I want to view, where I get my error beep. I came across this app while performing a search for "batch image browser" and it seemed like the best choice. I would have gone with Lyn, but wanted to pay a bit less. Maybe I was mistaken in my purchase. I have searched within the developer's site to no avail. If there is an update on this soon, I will be patient. But as it stands, I am close to asking for a refund from the Mac App store. I just want to be sure.

I'd like to make a couple of suggestions to the developer: 1. Add preference option to start browsing in full screen. 2. Implement hiding of the mouse cursor while browsing. 3. Add rotate and save buttons for the current image (actually the "save as" option is already there, but with no image processing features its purpose is unclear).

Ok, so unlike the Finders 'Quick view' this stays about after you click on something else. That's good. But is that all it does... There are no 'tool tips' on the buttons ? You can't drag and drop a selection of your own choosing onto a 'Viewer' window. You can't press a modifier key and select multiple items from within the open command. No automatic advance feature, press a button and watch a slideshow neatly in the viewer window. Which can more useful than fullscreen slideshows, that stop other work dead in it's tracks. I could go, but you get the general idea. Not the most well thought out software to ever hit the market place. Overall, it's OK. Cool for the developer to experiment and learn on the job. But surely this should be free ?

I think version 2 is a definite improvement over version 1. Still, I'm missing full screen option, my personal preference to toggle full screen would be Enter key.
