SnowSaver is a Cocoa OpenGL screensaver. It's modeled on the pretty falling snowflakes animation that Apple have been running on an iMac in the window of the local Apple store. (Theirs is actually a QuickTime movie, and not available to customers. People have asked.)

What's New

Version 1.1b2 adds the following:
  • Fixed the "textures disappearing after leaving full screen preview" bug; it turns out startAnimation may get called multiple times during the life of a screensaver process.
  • Added support for multiple snowflake textures.
  • Texture code changes may also help with the "multiple monitors" bug, but I don't have a setup to test with.
  • Added support more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.1 or later

spoke with developer about updating the snowsaver app to work with intel macs and making a 64 bit version...his response:
Hi. I've written a SnowSaver 2.0 for 64 bit and Snow Leopard, and plan
to finish the last bit of polish and release it when the Mac App Store
launches. All new graphics code, which now uses algorithmically
generated snowflakes made from polygons, rather than just a small
number of textures.

Any hint of an update? I find nothing referencing SnowSaver on the developer's linked website here, nor in the Mac App Store.

Developer here. Apple rejected my screensavers, so you'll likely never see SnowSaver 2.

hey matt how are you?? just wondering if you still had that beta for lion you were working on and if its possible to tweak it to run in mountain lion? if the app itself is only looping a video file of some kind we could all just use another utility to loop that particular video file and use snowsaver as our screensaver again in ML. Why in the world would apple decline you posting it to the mac app store?? and if you did post it,then you must have a working beta that at the least works in lion right? can we buy the app directly from you???? i have never seen a better snow screensaver in years since yours!! making me crazy i cant use it again after all these years.

Since this is a PPC version, go here for a great intel snow saver.

Great app on my PBG4 main screen but doesn't work on the second attached monitor. I see falling rectangles. Keep up the good work.

Thank you so much, I love this screen saver! It's my all time favorite holiday screen saver. However, it doesn't work on my new MacBook Pro. Could you please make a Universal version so this can run on new Intel based Macs? Please, please, please?

I installed 1.1b2 on a Powerbook G4 with a second attached monitor. The flakes have texture on the external monitor, but look like falling squares on the powerbook's built in screen.

Very nice screensaver, but it would be nice if you could adjust the speed of the falling snowflakes. They seem to fall a little to rapidly for me.

I'd love to be able to choose a background image with this app in screensaver mode instead of just a solid color. Good stuff though!
