Interface is definitely not the strongest point of BioniX Wallpaper, although you would imagine it has a 3D. No, it does not. In fact, interface is quite dull and unimpressive in terms of looks and customizable skins. It is possible to change the opacity and switch to minimalist mode. Developers have produced a quality piece to help users enhance the aesthetics of their desktop, but have disregarded the aesthetics of the software itself.
Despite the looks, the interface is simplistic and easy to handle. It reminds any audio player interface due to Play, Next, Stop, Playlist, Shuffle and other buttons typically found in audio players.
