If you are the kind of person that enjoys keeping and showcasing a beautiful and clean desktop, you may be interested in finding out how you can inject some life into it with a simple application.
If so, let us introduce you to Live Wallpaper. Live Wallpaper is a small application that gives your wallpaper added functionality. Granted, it may not be as intricate as other applications like it, but let’s take a look at how it fares on its own.
Whether you got your Mac from the Apple store, customised it online, or found it on the street, for the most part your Mac is the same as pretty much everyone else’s Mac – at least as far as the eye can tell. For some people, that’s okay. But others strive to make each machine their own, to show the world that they are different. You could do something simple like changing the wallpaper on your Mac, perhaps using one of the many wallpapers we’ve rounded up. Or, you could get several monitors to turn your Mac into the perfect workstation. Customizing your wallpaper then, though, can be a rather difficult task if you want a continuous picture across your screens that looks perfect.
This is where Multi Monitor Wallpaper comes into play. No longer are you forced to open photoshop and manually split the wallpaper into parts and attempt to align it perfectly for your display setup, only to find you misses it by a few pixels. With Multi Monitor Wallpaper, you can now get a wallpaper to span across your displays perfectly every time. Read on for our in-depth review of the app. (more…)

GeekTool is a really neat preference panel that allows widget-like functionality on a highly customizable level.
Unfortunately, if you aren’t particularly geeky, this app can be a bit confusing to get up and running. Luckily enough, here at AppStorm there’s definitely no shortage of geeks such as myself to help you out! I’ll take you step by step through finding and installing scripts to make your desktop the envy of the office.
There are two types of Mac users, those that keep their desktops sparkling clean and those who use their desktops as a digital junk drawer that holds every random scrap of content they come by.
I’m the former type. I like a good, clean desktop, often with an extremely minimal wallpaper graphic. However, I also really like added functionality. GeekTool is one of my favorite apps because it lets me make use of that void of desktop space in an attractive manner.
Today we’ll explore an alternate use of that blank desktop space by taking a brief look at Desktopr, an app that allows you replace or add to your wallpaper with a functioning web page
While the iPhone can already be considered beautiful in itself, there’s nothing wrong with adding some personal touches to it. Specifically, setting your own custom backgrounds – after all, it’s your phone so why not make it look like it belongs to you?
So far, for creating backgrounds on your computer, you had to manually set the size of the desired image (which at least for me involves Googling around a bit) and then send it in some awkward way to your iPhone. Not to mention setting images for your contacts.
With Ensoul, a nifty Mac application, you can create backgrounds and set images for your contacts with just a few clicks, work in a beautiful interface, and transfer everything to your iPhone easily. Meet your iPhone’s new beauty advisor!
I’d like to take a moment to say a big thank you to our weekly sponsor, Wallpaper Wizard. If you’re the type of person that likes to keep their desktop wallpaper fresh, this new Mac App Store offering may be right up your street.
The great thing about Wallpaper Wizard is that it’s a one-stop wallpaper dashboard. You can flick through thousands of high-resolution wallpapers that are all ready to use, immediately apply them, or add them to a regular rotation through your favourite images (it’s also possible to upload your own wallpapers for other people to use).
On the whole, I was really impressed with the range of wallpapers available through the app. There are some stunning images, and it’s not hard to find something that suits your taste.
Wallpaper Wizard is priced at $9.99, and is available now on the Mac App Store. Be sure to take a look and let us know what you think!
