I'm not sure if its justified having a mark twice that of wallpaper developers such as dualboot,maxelus etc. And what the heck are the white specks that hold floating all over my screen? They're really annoying, if they stayed still I'd be trying to pick them of the screen.
This is one unbelievable looking app! Definitely a worthwhile for anyone wanting a visually stunning weather-based live wallpaper. However I have to dock it points for weather accuracy. Google keeps thinking it's snowing where I am when it's currently 15 degrees and sunny (also it hasn't snowed here in over a century lol). Googling the weather in my zone retrieves correct weather conditions, so it has to be something in the application that's causing the snow condition. Also OpenWeatherMap is often less accurate than HTC's weather application using AccuWeather. Perhaps add AccuWeather as a provider option to alleviate both problems?
Amazing wallpaper i have purchased this wallpaper and the real weather wallpaper and i noticed the scrolling on the homescreen when swipeing from left to right just isnt as smooth if only u could fix this then i would rate 5 stars because the visuals of this LWP us awsome man amazing work.
Using it on HTC One X in Dock mode. Works brilliantly, graphics are good, movement of sun and moon is regular.. unbelievable application. It looks so much amazing in dock screen mode since HTC dock scrren is beautifully laid out giving ample zone for this wall paper to present its graphics along with weather data.
Pls developers your support!!! For unknown reason, after updating to JB, this FAVORITE lwp, stopped reacting normally as before on ICS!!! This what I mean is ....that in any of my device restarts, your lwp disappeared and returns to default wallpaper. Kindly request your help on this issue
I was impressed with his first edition. Then his second comes along and blows the first one away. I did not expect such a leap on the third edition, but it is another such "quantum leap." No more black-and-white photos. Every major listing has a color photo, and one can see the evolution of this nature photographer's talent. It's a stunning and amazingly helpful tutorial book and delightfully readable with his usual wit. Anyone wishing to visit North Carolina's waterfalls should create the acquisition of this book a top priority.
Just when I thought the 2nd edition was the greatest thing, here comes Adams with another attractive collection of his photography and experience! Since my old 2nd edition copy is falling apart, I was overjoyed to see this fresh one. It's loaded with stunning fresh photographs of nearly every fall, as well as including a lot of more fresh ones not included in the 2nd edition. You'll be tempted to 2 copies -- one for hikes and one for the coffee table!
I had the previous ver of this book and love this updated 3rd edition so much more. The full color pics are wonderful, but even better are the GPS coordinates to every trailhead and waterfall, which is exactly what I was missing with the 2nd edition. It's extremely thorough in describing the hikes, which I search very helpful since I hike with my dog and need to know if the conditions require climbing or other things he can't do. The organization of the book by region is amazing with maps in each chapter to present the proximity of the waterfalls to each other; amazing for planning your route. I love that he rates the beauty of each waterfall, and although subjective, he gives some reasoning for his ratings to support you decide if that hike is worth it. I refer to this book before every hike and highly recommend it to any waterfall enthusiast in NC!
This book is just ESSENTIAL for anyone serious about making the most of seeing every waterfall possible in North Carolina! This is THE best tutorial to all things waterfalls in North Carolina, hands down. Kevin has done an awesome and most thorough job I've seen documenting and mapping waterfalls and their similar info. Not to mention he's just a swell guy. I cannot recommend this book high enough! 10 stars!
There's a whole lot to like about Lisa's very amazing tutorial to the waterfalls of Minnesota, including the superlative photos, thorough coverage, ample descriptions, and tabulated data (e.g., zone of and directions to falls, length of hikes, quality of trails, difficulty of hikes, etc.). But the organization of the book renders it, in my opinion, fairly difficult to rst, although it's helpful to organize the falls by geographical zone (i.e., different regions within the state), the extra placement of falls in the book by means of other criteria (i.e., top 20, must see, other) results in the need to look here and there throughout the book to search falls which are actually in close proximity to one another (e.g., in to view the entries for the different falls around Gooseberry State Park, one must look at three sets of pages: pp. 100-103 [for the Lower Falls], pp. 150,151 [for the Middle Falls], and pp. 190,191 [for Fifth Falls]).Second, although the Minnesota map on p. 12 is cross-referenced to a numerical designation for each falls on p. 13, the listing of these falls on page 13 includes no reference to the page numbers for the main articles on these falls throughout the book. And although the table of contents on pp. 4,5 includes these page numbers for the main articles, this listing of the falls does not include the numerical designations from pp. 12,13! All of this makes for a amazing of flipping back-and-forth to locate the main articles for each of the waterfalls. Exacerbating this difficulty is the fact that the book includes no alphabetized index to the waterfalls (and neither are the numerical designations found in the main articles). Interestingly, the 4th edition of Minnesota State Parks, also published by Adventure Publications, contains a related listing by region (in this case, parks) with a Minnesota map on a two-page spread (pp. 10,11), but in this case the numbered entries also contain a page number for the main article!Third, although I appreciate the detailed instructions for locating each falls, it should be noted that there are no detailed hiking maps in this tutorial (unlike the very amazing and detailed maps in Eve & Gary Wallinga's "Waterfalls of Minnesota's North Shore & More"). Of course including maps would greatly lengthen the size and cost of the guide, but I'm quite sure those like me who visit dozens of waterfalls would benefit from such maps.I raise the above concerns about this tutorial not to minimize Crayford's very amazing and helpful contribution (it may very well be the best tutorial to all Minnesota waterfalls), but with the hope that future editions could be created much better and easier to use - especially with a two-page spread of map/numbered falls/main page number (as in "Minnesota State Parks"), along with an index. Furthermore, I want the main organization of the book would also be changed so that all waterfalls along a particular river would be found in the same section of the guide, since I think this would render it much more user-friendly. As for the detailed maps, I can always dream!
I own a lot of waterfall books; probably over 20. Up until now the best book out of all of them has been Kevin Adams' "North Carolina Waterfalls", 2nd edition. The 3rd edition, the book I'm reviewing, surpasses the previous one by miles!! It is extremely well-written, includes valuable info about hiking and waterfall safety precautions, and is probably the most complete tutorial to the state's falls in existence. Not only are all of those things true, the photography, all color, is phenomenal! I don't believe I've ever seen such astounding pictures of water flowing at night with the Milky Method galaxy spread gloriously out above it!! This author is talented in a multitude of areas. Buy this book! You will not be disappointed!!
Amazing book with amazing material! Never ending possibilities. I love that it lists nearby waterfalls. I like that it is printed in color but it also makes it feel like a coffee table book. Which is probably best, would ruin it like my other one if I took it out. Directions are amazing and it provides various ratings for falls. I have found some items in this book that I simply could not search elsewhere!! Thank you Kevin!
This book is jam packed with info about waterfalls in North Carolina. Has a lot of waterfall that I did not even know existed. And I am an avid hiker. The navigation of the book is nice becuase you at a map to search the section of North Carolina you are looking for a waterfall. He rates them on beauty and photographability. If that’s a word. It has pictures of the waterfalls that might be worth making a unique effort to go look at. It is a amazing book to hold up with all the falls that you have been to. And also all the falls you wish to go to. I pinpointed my zone on the map and used a string to search which ones were nearest so I could begin close and explore. Worth having in your library. He also references some other sources of info.
For anyone seriously in love with waterfalls and especially North Carolina waterfalls, Kevin Adams is considered one of the foremost leading photographers and authors in his field. This book is a must for those wanting to discover North Carolina's Land of the Waterfalls. Very informative and detailed info on how to obtain to them and how to search them.
Amazing book! Used it when planning my trip to the North Shore. Only giving it 4 stars because waterfalls aren't organized by region, which created it somewhat difficult to figure out which waterfalls are at the North Shore. But I was able to figure it out with the support of Google.
I bought this to take on a week long trip to NC. The pictures are beautiful, the directions I used were accurate, and I can see how this book would be of value to someone who spends a lot of time in NC. As it turned out, it wasn't the best choice for my latest trip, but that's no reason to reduce the rating. I can, however, see using this on a future trip. Here's why it wasn't the best choice for me this time. First, I wasn't familiar with the area, so the organization of the book was not helpful without an actual map. (I should have bought the map by Kevin Adams that goes with this.) Second, I'm not so enthusiastic (or fit) to go bush-whacking to see a waterfall or anything else, so perhaps an index of falls with difficulty levels would be helpful as an appendix. (Perhaps this was also part of the map I didn't buy.) Third, my plan was to hike with my dog to waterfalls, but I wasn't staying in the zone where there were any waterfalls close by, so I could only use this for a few waterfalls, and those were ones listed on most websites. Now that I have the book, I will be able to plan my next NC visit to take in more of the lovely falls.
Kevin Adams continues to provide detailed info and attractive waterfall photography. I do not have experience with his previous editions, but I have heard that this edition is even better than his unbelievable previous editions because he continues to modernize the info for accuracy and to reflect current conditions at the falls locations, including accessibility. Don't go waterfalling in NC without it!
This a nice walpaper. So the reasons I only give it a 3 star is because a cpl things. 1st please add more cities, I think u should add 1 major town (the state capital) in all states. And 2 add some airplane's in the skys and 3rd create it work even when ur not running on wifi. Create go off 4g as well as wifi. I do alot of traveling and am in my vehicle a lot so it be nice if it went off 4g as well as wifi. And allow it let us to choose the town we wish as a background. And then it be 5 star.
Love the wallpaper, love that you can even see the small people walking in the park on the fresh york scene. Couple of suggestions, having small planes in the sky every now and then would be nice. Also I love the day and night theme but surise and sunset would look better if it had a more orange tint. Otherwise this wallpaper is awesome!
Still my favorite wallpaper, even after three years, but by now the same scenes are starting to feel a small old and tired. There are very few apps like this one on the shop place. My only gripe would be with the Moon. The phases are close enough to the true thing that I could overlook that, but the Moonrise and Moonset are never right. The Fresh Moon should never be high overhead at Midnight!
Love tapping thru the visual forecast! The winter\spring\fall scenes are more interesting than the summer stage that is pictured! Tip: I switched application settings to Google weather for a better forecast. My children like finding the moon in its phase, twinkling falling stars on clear nights, mist, flying birds, streaming rays of sunrise and glow of sunset. Tapping the screen switches to how tomorrow will look, then each day for the next week. If rain or snow is forecast, we can stay there & see some of the [email protected]#$%! the glass & fog up. Very smooth!
Weather transparent. j for!! Can't change zone and. Weather is usually actually right? It only shows the windmill. I have the Internet but won't. present the other seasons and it stops when downloading. This is the very best of wallpaper I have ever had! so please correct this program That You
Nearly there I would give 5 stars if you could have the moon, birds and clouds like your other lwp. I have purchased your other Lwp but got a small bored with the same stage that's why I went looking and found this one, I know you have a amazing quality application that very few can match. If you could fix the above mentioned would not hesitate to give the 5 stars!
Almost excellent :) I would give this 5 stars if there were raindrops on the screen (when it's raining) and a choice of islands or scenes. Update: 17/10/16 Still love this application after 3 years but PLEASE... can we have raindrops on the screen then I would give you 10 stars if I could!
