Instead of photos, images, designs, ore more kittens or scenery, why not make the Mac’s Desktop Wallpaper actually useful? You know; time, date, stocks, weather; that kind of useful.
A Truly Useful Desktop
Smart Wall is a very inexpensive app that brings more value to the Mac’s Desktop wallpaper than any scenery, animal photos, or graphic designs ever have.
A simple control panel gives you options to turn the Desktop’s wallpaper image into a center for valuable information.
Use Smart Wall to place information overlaid on top of the Desktop wallpaper image.
Add the weather forecast, complete with graphics. Setup the date and time in large letters and colors to match the wallpaper image.
Got stocks? Follow your favorite stocks with a list that is updated throughout the day. You control the fonts– size, color, font, and location on the wallpaper.
And, yes, a few pictures are worth at least a few hundred words.
And, another sample example with a rearrangement (all controlled by the Smart Wall app).
And, a quick look at the controls (which are actually fun to use).
There. Just what you wanted for your Mac.
Smart Desktop wallpaper.
Smart Wall rocks with a tiny 99-cent price tag, but turns the Desktop wallpaper into something useful as well as pretty.
Setup is simple, though a little trial and error is required to match your font sizes and colors with whichever Desktop wallpaper image you’ve selected.
All that’s available so far is time, date, stocks, and weather, but adding an RSS feed news headline would be a big plus.
