Mac users come in two flavors. Those who use the Desktop onscreen, and those who use the Finder and app Windows. I fall into the latter group and seldom know what image is displayed in my Desktop wallpaper.
The other group wants to have photos or images or designs gracing the Desktop via background wallpaper. It’s OK. Different strokes for different folks. From my perspective as a non-wallpaper user, I think Desktop wallpaper needs something special. You know. Like digital water.
Hear me out because in all fairness, this is a cool idea. OK, at least it’s an interesting idea; more so if you use Desktop wallpaper. Enter LiquifyDesktop. This is a Mac app that fills the Mac’s screen with clear water that covers any wallpaper. Even better, as the screen pointer or mouse pointer moves across the Mac’s screen, the water ripples.
See? Digital water covers the Mac’s screen.
Yep. That’s digital water with a ripple. Cool, huh?
There’s not much to LiquifyDesktop. It runs on macOS High Sierra, comes with both automatic and interactive wave or ripple generation, and has optional background music so your Mac becomes kind of a nifty neato way to take a break with some soothing sounds.
Without interaction of automatic wave generation, the Mac’s screen displays whatever Desktop wallpaper you’re showing at the time.
Don’t look for too many bells and whistles in Preferences. You won’t find many. I don’t know of another screensaver-like wallpaper-like utility which turns the screen into digital water with mouse-based effects, so this is a first.
Some Mac users say it does not work with Macs that have an external display (I have only the display that came with my iMac to test). Still, it’s nifty neato.
