  • (2015-04-16) cheryl cotter: The view of Pittsburgh is amazing. Only wish it was real time :) but he is working on that.
  • (2015-04-09) D Di: I really enjoy this chrome extension. It's nice to see the photograph change with the time of the day. The locations are awesome, especially the Pittsburgh image. Photography is great and just like the whole layout. I also downloaded the Desktop version for my Mac. It replaces your default wallpaper and just like this extension it changes through the day. I have had no issues with it and highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys great photography and who is looking for something different and unique.
  • (2015-03-22) Scott Martin: I'm definitely a fan of the random mode... it's cool to see Jerusalem when you open one tab, then the Caribbean the next time.
  • (2015-03-22) Dean Webb: I love having the views available through the day. I don't have a window near my cube... unless I run this program, and then I always have a great view that changes through the day.
  • (2015-03-21) Lisa Limeri: Looks so great!
