Finding the perfect wallpaper for your Mac takes some time and searching. Then, you get bored of it after a while and the process begins again. If you want a wallpaper that is forever changing, intuitive, and fun, then check out a new Mac application called Satellite Eyes by software developer Tom Taylor. The application will set your wallpaper to a Bing (Microsoft) Satellite image of your current location.
Satellite Eyes comes with a good deal of settings. First of all, you can change the scope of your map. This option, called Zoom Level in the preferences, allows you to choose between Street view, Neighborhood view, City view, and Region view.
The application also comes with a fair number of map styles. You can choose between Bing Aerialís default appearance, a Watercolor appearance, a Toner appearance, or a Terrain (US only) appearance.
Finally, you can also choose between three nice image effects including, the default (None), a Pixelated appearance, or a Halftone appearance.
Since Satellite Eyes requires your location to show you your general region as a Mac wallpaper, you will need to allow the application to use your location. It will update your location every couple of minutes to make sure that you location is always accurate and that the map always suggests your current location. As long as the application is using your location, you will see a location services icon in your Macís Menu Bar right next to the Satellite Eyes icon, which also appears in your Menu Bar. To make things easier, you can even make Satellite Eyes open up when you turn on your Mac.
Satellite Eyes is a free application, so if you have a Mac, you can give it a test drive from this link
. If you donít like it, uninstalling it is easy; just drag the application to the trash.
