App Description

Magic Window is the absolute best and most beautiful motion wallpaper and screen saver available for your Mac. It includes complete timelapse views of coasts, beaches, cities, mountains, lakes, and more. Watch as time and light slowly paint the skies beautiful colors and the cities transform from day to night and back again.

Chosen by Apple as a Staff Favorite, What's Hot, and New & Noteworthy
#1 entertainment app in more than 50 countries worldwide

Created by the same team that brought you Magic Window for iPad and iPhone, Timelapse Desktop is a new style of desktop wallpaper made using timelapse photography. The wallpapers slowly blend over time revealing magical changes in scenery and color.

Magic Window includes 165 scenes: 6 are built into the app, and 159 are downloaded after you install the app. We use scene downloads so we can bring you more and more scenes without making the app larger and larger. There are no additional charges for scenes. You can install the app on as many Macs as you want and download scenes as many times as you want.

Magic Window scenes are full 16:10 HD resolution (1920x1200) and look fantastic on every single Mac as well as HD displays. These are truly high definition wallpapers, not stretched low resolution videos.

Magic Window fully supports multiple monitors, allowing you to have different scenes on each display and to selectively enable or disable displays. AirPlay can also be used to display the scenes on an Apple TV.

Magic Window offers a variety of speeds that let you control how much CPU it consumes. On the slowest speed Magic Window can consume less than 5% CPU, leaving your Mac free to focus on other tasks.

If you already own Tahoe Blue or Magic Window Yosemite National Park and are looking to buy this as an upgrade please be aware this is a separate app that runs independently. After you purchase this you will need to quit the other app and then open Magic Window from the Applications folder. You can still run the other apps however they should be run one at a time.
