Ever thought that your screensaver would look really cool as your wallpaper? With Wallsaver this dream is now a reality.

The simple little application activates the change at the click of a button, and you can immediately enjoy your screensaver on your desktop.

If you'd like to change screensaver, you don't even have to go in your System Preferences. Just change it directly from the program's preferences.

If you are tired of seeing your screensaver on your desktop just restore your original wallpaper.

Wallsaver is easy to use and does not particularly use up a lot of RAM.

We did notice some text to still be in French in the application window, and it would be nice to have that translated to English for non-French speaking users.

Changes

  • Added "Wallsaver Information" under Help menu
  • Added new graphical disk image
  • Moved "Extras" menu to left of Help menu
  • Scaled down application icon

Wallsaver is a Cocoa application (written in AppleScript) that allows users to run their screen savers as their desktop wallpaper. Wallsaver doesn’t have to be running 24/7.

You can launch Wallsaver, activate your screen saver, and then quit the program. Restoring your desktop is just as easy. Open up Wallsaver, click “Restore”, and you’re set.

    "Does not work properly in lion"

    In lion, it starts off ok, but soon as you shift to another desktop or a fullscreen application, well it messes up. More.
