Save scenes as Live Photos and use them as Live Photo Wallpaper with 3D Touch on iPhone 6s, 6s+, 7, and 7+. Use them as Still Wallpaper on other iPhone models and iPad.

Sunsets, sunrises, cities, mountains, beaches, and coasts will liven your office or any room in your home. The touch time control will amaze you and your friends.

Includes full support for external displays. We recommend using our Apple TV apps on the 4th generation and newer Apple TV (sold separately in the TV App Store.) On older Apple TVs this is the best choice.

Magic Window also includes an Alarm Clock, Sleep Timer, Live Weather Conditions, Daily and Hourly Weather Forecasts. All cleanly integrated with cutting edge design.

More than 100 additional scenes available for purchase through the Destination store in the app.

All scenes in Magic Window were captured by professional timelapse photographers including Mike McCabe, Chad Richard, Hal Bergman, Jose Manuel Segura Alvarez, Sean Stiegemeier, and Ben Wiggins. These are some of the best timelapse photographers in the world.




Magic Window 6.0 comes with 22 scenes. Three of those scenes are packaged with the application. The remaining scenes can be downloaded free of charge from the application. If a scene hasn't been downloaded a preview is available. You will need 1250MB space to store all scenes. You can freely delete and redownload scenes as many times as you want.
