Beamy, thanks! Though you posted this download URL months ago, someone just pointed it out to us. (Been just a *bit* busy!) I've edited the listing so that everyone will be able to access it easily. And yes, it will even run under OS X 10.9.4!

Doesn't work if you're using Camouflage. If the icons are hidden by Camouflage, the chosen screensaver will not display. Odd: While trying out Wallsaver (with Camouflage running), and finding it didn't work, I Zapped the app and all associated files. Then I noticed my screensaver flashed, and on a hunch, I told Camouflage to Show Icons. Bingo, the program was running. I guess the script had run it course, and deleting the program had no effect (until I reboot, I assume). Odd. But since I really enjoy Camouflage, I'll not be re-downloading Wallsaver. Otherwise, good program - just makes you kinda seasick when your desktop is moving around.

Works just fine on my MacBook Pro Intel core 2 duo w/10.5.8. Wallsaver's U.I. isn't as polished/slick as xBack's (been using xBack for several years...it's $10), however, Wallsaver runs my all time favorite screensaver, "Electric Sheep" smoothly and without issue while xBack crashes every time when trying to run it. It would be nice if Wallsaver had a setting to utilize screensaver options just as xBack does, though. A menu bar icon to invoke Wallsaver's features would be sweet....xBack has one. With the above mentioned additions, I'd be willing to pay a few drachmas for Wallsaver.

Both MacUpdate and the developers website claim this version should run on 10.4. I don't know about that, but I can tell you that it will not launch on 10.5.8. It unexpectedly quits every time.

Please re-download Wallsaver 2.5.2 from http://www.wallsaverapp.com. This update fixed Mac OS X 10.5 compatibility. (Since Wallsaver crashes on launch, you won't be able to update using the build in update feature.) Sorry for any inconvenience!

Awesome! Snow Leopard compatibility! Now works great. After installing SL, I missed using Wallsaver - thanks so much to the developer for this great *free* app!

Doesn't seem to work correctly - 10.5.4 Uses SysPref choosen saver fine. Shows black screen if you make WSaver choose.

MacUpdate won't let me edit the previous post, so here's a new one. Some screen savers are not compatible with Wallsaver. When those screen savers are run, a black background will be displayed. Again, please contact support. They can provide more information & help.

Nice and simple. Works smoothly. Would be sweet if it could be accessed via a menu bar icon. Not nearly as slick and refined as xBack, though. That one's $10.
