OSXPlanet – Live planetary desktop backgrounds

Mar 16, 2007 - Leave a Comment

Everyone enjoys a cool desktop background and OSXPlanet just might take the cake for its automatically updating planet wallpaper. You can choose any of the nine planets (eight if you’re anti-Pluto) and have them displayed as your background. Perhaps the most impressive is with our very own planet Earth, which you can set to display an automatically updated map showing where the sun is shining, where it’s night time, as well as current weather patterns. It’s an effect you really have to see for yourself, so check out the screenshots below and download OSXPlanet. The app is free so you have nothing to lose.
