Even though iOS and OS X are both very easy on the eye, that doesn’t mean some users wouldn’t like to make changes here and there.
As those running a jailbroken iOS device can vouch – the temptation to call in WinterBoard or Springtomize often proves too much, and before you know it, the one or two visual tweaks you intended to make have turned into a full-scale overhaul, with no stone left unturned.
Even if you’re not jailbroken, though, there are an abundance of App Store residents who are only too keen to help change the way things look. Pimp Your Screen is one such app, jazzing up the SpringBoard and Lockscreen with some superb, high-resolution visual effects.
Developed by Apalon, Pimp Your Screen has now been wonderfully re-thought and improved for the Mac. As with the iOS iteration, the Mac app presents an exclusive collection of optimized background images and wallpapers ready and waiting to grace your computer. Pimp Your Screen has been a popular choice hitherto because it is always updated, and fortunately the Mac version continues this tradition.
You can choose a large catalog of different designs by Apalon’s assortment of pro designers. From the minimalistic, subtle images to the loud, slick and colorful – there’s a design to suit pretty much every mood, and every taste. You can choose from 8 different categories, and images support all Mac resolutions for a perfect fit. You’re able to bookmark the ones you prefer by means of the Favorites folder, and you can check out what’s hot via the Popular tab.
Of course, those with a little Photoshop nous will probably want to create their own designs, but even so, Pimp Your Screen does a stellar job in what it claims to do. There’s social sharing via Twitter and e-mail, enabling those around you to enjoy some of the great designs this app has to offer.
