For better or worse, one of the most popular made-for-TV movies last year involved sharks and a tornado– Sharknado.
Just to prove that humankind is in no way advancing itself beyond the neanderthal age, 2014 brought us Sharknado 2: The Second One. And, yes, I admit to watching both movies. Why? They’re so bad they’re good. When sharks attack New York City, what’s not to like? Here’s how to put some sharks on your Mac.
Free. 3D. Sharks.
Sharks 3D is a free Mac Desktop wallpaper app with, well, mean looking sharks. It comes with four different 3D scenes so there’s some variety.
It also boasts (as if boasting about sharks is a good thing) six different shark species, and it’s all in 3D-like graphics with effects, perfect for MacBook Pro models with Retina display.
Did I mention that Sharks 3D is free? It seems like I should mention that.
Sharks 3D also works as a screensaver with password protection, and it has background music to suit the mood of menacing sharks occupying screen real estate on your Mac.
The 3D effect is surprisingly attractive; visually robust, if you will. It’s like having Shark Week on your Mac all day.
Or, just think of it as Sharknado without the tornado. After all, it’s the tornado that sucked up all the sharks to make Sharkado in the first place.
Sharks 3D works on Macs with multiple displays, too, and the sharks move from one display to another.
Sharks 3D turns your Mac’s screen into an ocean view (from in the ocean, where the sharks live) aquarium filled with sharks and other fish. But no tornado.
Did I mention that Sharks 3D is free? I think I need to mention that. Having watched either Sharknado or Sharknado 2 TV movie is not a prerequisite for using Sharks 3D, but it helps set the mood.
While the app is free and certainly valuable to any Desktop wallpaper or screensaver fan, additional sharks, effects, and underwater wreckage can be obtained with an in-app purchase.
