A desktop live wallpaper app made for Mac.


Status: Alpha
Due to the app being an alpha build, expect bugs and not to be as sharp as other applications.


🚧   Please note that this is an alpha release. Also the higher the quality the higher cpu usage. 1080 seems to have the best quality/performance ratio but i still need to test it. 🚧

  1. Download the latest release from releases page
  2. Extract the zip file
  3. drop the app into your Applications folder
  4. Open the app
  5. Enjoy!

How to use

Uploading and changing background



  • Accepts multiple media files (mp4, webm, png, jpg, gif)
  • Can chose between 60fps, 30fps (might add more options later)
  • Media type can have audio (Might add option to add custom audio later)
  • Supports all screen resolutions (Tested on 4k, 1080p, 720p screens)
  • More to be added


  • Detect multiple monitors and create a wallpaper for each one (different instances)
  • Improve image quality of the wallpaper 
  • To add an optional particle system
  • To be able to reproduce background music on the wallpaper 
  • Cursor interaction
  • To be able to detect wheter the user is using an app and stop the wallpaper to save resorces (like battery)  (Unstable and experimental, available on next build)
  • To be able to launch the app at startup (Optionally) 
  • Make it laptop friendly (reduce battery drain and all of that) 

All of those points are planned but can be changed or removed in the future. Depending on the time I can spend on the development of the project and the need of features.

Ideas are welcome, please if you have one leave it on discussion or make a PR with a change you want to add, if it's cool it's gonna be added on a future version!

Keep in mind

  • Enabling the app to run at startup might have a negative impact on battery life.
  • Using power save mode increases the cpu usage since it disables hardware acceleration.
  • The app is still in alpha and might have bugs.
