Aerial overview

Aerial is a Mac screen saver based on the new Apple TV screen saver that displays the aerial movies Apple shot over New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, China, etc.

Aerial is completely open source, so feel free to contribute to its development!

Features:
  • Auto Load Latest Aerials: Aerials are loaded directly from Apple, so you're never out of date.
  • Play Different Aerial On Each Display: If you've got multiple monitors, this setting loads a different aerial for each of your displays.
  • Favorites: You can choose to only have certain aerials play.
  • Preview: Clicking on an aerial in the screen saver options previews that aerial for you.

Beware. I recently updated to Monterrey. I had been using Aerial. But this "aerial companion" does not work! It does put an app in the applications folder, but nothing happens if you click on it. It does not show up in the screensavers in control panel. The most frustrating is that you cannot delete it! Force delete does not show it. Manual delete says it is "running" and there is no way to stop it. Restart does not help. Beware "aerial companion."

NOTE: v.3.0.5 IS working with macOS 10.14.x. From what I can tell, v.3.0.4 had bugs and is now no longer being installed by Aerial Companion. v.3.0.5 is now the default. [I'd delete my previous 'warning', but we are no longer allowed to pull old comments.]

WARNING: v.3.0.4 does NOT run on macOS 10.14.x. Attempting to use it will black out Screen Saver System Preferences. Quitting and restarting System Preferences won't help. Stick with an older version on macOS 10.14.

This is a fun screen saver. Works great on my late 2015 21.5" 4K iMac running macOS 11.2.3.

It says version 2.3.0 requires macOS 10.12.0 or later. I guess we'll have to wait a year or two.

This is my FAVORITE screensaver - it's astounding! By the way, its current version is 2.0.10, not the 2.0.6 shown above by MacUpdate.

Great screensaver. I'm a high school teacher, and I'll often have this projected onto my screen, the kids love it.
