Rejoice Mac users who live in cold climates. Here’s how to turn your Mac’s screen into a beautiful fireplace with all the sound and visual comfort that implies, but without the heat or the option to burn your house down.
Logs And Flames In HD
One of my favorite Mac screensaver-like Desktop-like apps is called Fireplace Live HD. Except it’s an app, not a way to set your Mac’s screen on fire.
Fireplace Live can run in the background while you’re working on your Mac, or in fullscreen mode while you’re nearby.
Either way, you benefit from the sound of crackling fireplace, and the visual is merely a click away.
Because Fireplace Live is a Mac app it behaves like one. That means you control the size of the app’s window, the sound of the fireplace, and a sleep timer.
The app comes with eight fireplace designs, and it can smoothly loop through each one.
Yes, a screenshot is worth half of a thousand words.
Not bad, huh?
Fireplace Live HD comes with eight different HD (or, higher; HD starts at 720p) fireplace themes and the looping feature plays back each one, one by one, with an elegant transition between each.
That means the fireplace can sit fullscreen, or as a window open and visible while you work. This is so nicely done, simple, elegant, and looks and sounds– from a few feet away– just like fireplace from my parent’s home St. Louis.
