Just downloaded!


The best thing I ever used on my fair. Folks just plays with it...


Really worth it!


FANTASTIC. Can't believe how professional it looks and is so easy and cheap. You are a bit unsure at first, so simply try demo and see just how simple it is. I use it right now.


Might be good but can't tell. It does not work with the Mac you see! Software is not available yet and no suggestion as to when it will be. Mac owners, hold off buying until you check the website for the Mac software!

An absolutely amazing product. I ordered mine only yesterday and it arrived instantly :o. It's a great viewer for my pictures, and it doesn't usually get things complicated. Would recommend to someone with a lot of taste =P.


Whats the program you used to create it?
