Snowfall – The Best Snow Screensaver for Mac OS X

snow screensaver for mac

Last week I thought I had found the best snow screensaver for Mac OS X with LotsaSnow, but I was wrong. This is the best snow screensaver for Mac OS X, and if you want proof – it is what Apple is using in the Apple Stores this holiday season!

Snowfall is a beautiful screensaver of falling three dimensional snowflakes rendered incredibly smoothly in quartz composer (so it only works in Mac OS X Tiger and newer, tested to work in 10.6.5).

It is a real treat for your Mac desktop and highly recommended to get you in the holiday spirit.

The default setting is snow falling on a red striped backdrop, you can change the color scheme to anything, but you can also set a background picture if you’d like.

The screenshots really don’t do it justice. This is pure holiday joy, check it out yourself!

Snowfall requires Tiger (10.4) to Snow Leopard (10.6) so if you have a later version of Mac OS X you’ll need to use LotsaSnow instead.

    No longer works for me. It seemed to work for many years, but now with the Mojave 64-bit transition it no longer works.
