Not responsive design
By , for WP 4.2.1

Image does not stretch to fill small/vertical (phone) screens. Instead it fits horizontally and scoots down the screen when user scrolls. Vast regions of the page background are white.

Doesn't work with WP 3.6
By , for WP 3.6.1

To make this work, make sure you don't have a background specified in your theme. Once I figured that out, it worked fine.

Unusable plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Unfortunately I could not use this plugin for two fundamental reasons:

1. The background image resizing mechanism is severely flawed. My images are 1920px in width but the plugin crunches it to a pixelated mess, in addition to displaying it in the wrong proportion. See side by side comparison of my frontpage with plugin I eventually found (left) and this plugin (right): http://i.imgur.com/IzcN7Z3.jpg

2. As far as I can tell there is no way to add different backgrounds to individual pages. You either have no backgrounds on all pages or the same backgrounds on all pages.

I appreciate the effort into creating this plugin but it needs a lot of work.
