Learn how MacUpdate Desktop makes installing apps from MacUpdate.com one-click easy.
Next time, install Locket with 1-click

Learn how MacUpdate Desktop can install apps on MacUpdate with the simple click of the Install apps with MacUpdate Desktop icon. Plus, keep all your apps updated.

Locket sets your desktop background to a picture taken from your friend's iSight at specific intervals, and putting your picture on your friend's desktop. The inverse happens on your friend's computer.

Now you can feel like you're up-to-date with your loved ones - see your child at school, your friends on holiday or your partner at work - all with the subtlety of a desktop picture. Rather than the hassle of organising a video chat, stay visually connected to friends while you're left free to carry on working or playing with your computer.

Sorry, but I lost the source code, so Locket isn't supported any longer :( I would consider more...

  • Usernames must now contain at least four numbers to avoid clashes with other users.
  • Higher-resolution loading images, without the confusing similarity to a window!
  • Tool-tips
