Mac and Windows users are different. My Windows-using friends have desktop wallpaper, usually a photo of a child or pet (it’s difficult to tell the difference sometimes).
Mac users have Desktop Pictures (sometimes known as background) but often don’t both to change the default setting. I like change. Change is good. Here’s how to drag and drop to change change Desktop Pictures.
Drag And Drop Is Your Friend
There’s a new breed of Mac app developer on the scene. They’re the keepers of the one-trick-pony flame. Simple apps that do one thing, don’t cost much, and clutter up your Mac.
Clutter? I’ve got the Mac App Store. That takes care of my clutter for me. One-click downloads. One-click updates. Low prices. No clutter.
My most recent find is a totally unnecessary Mac app that’s handy if—and only if—you change your Mac’s Desktop Picture (nee wallpaper) from time to time.
Desklet is more like an applet. Drag and drop an image to Desklet in your Mac’s Dock and, Voila! (or, Poof!, if you don’t speak French). The Desktop Picture changes.
It’s so simple to use that the app developer doesn’t even bother to tell you how to use it. No step-by-step instructions. No 1, 2, 3. There’s not even a web site.
So, how do you check out the details and even buy this one-trick-pony app that’s so worthy?
Thank you, Steve Jobs for giving Mac users the Mac App Store. Where else would we go to purchase 99-cent apps? Oh, yeah. I forgot. The iPhone App Store.
Desklet is one of those 21st century new-breed apps that more or less only live on the Mac App Store, don’t have a web site to call home, and don’t even bother with simple things like instructions, or help screens, or a link to get support.
That said, it is a pretty nifty app if you can handle the intricacies of drag and drop and like changing your Mac’s Desktop Picture to little Freddy or Fido or photo of Bali when you live in Michigan (at least the folks in Wisconsin have the Packers).
