Developer website: Alloc Software

RandomExtra is a tool which helps you manage your screen savers. It picks a module according to your configuration and uses it when screen saver starts. If you don't want a screen saver to be picked for the time being, just "deactivate" it in the config dialog. With RandomExtra, you don't need to delete modules from various screen saver directories.

What's New

Version 3.0:

Note: A user has informed us of the following.... "In the Options>Extra tab, the Basic options under Pick Mode don't work - Basic Black or Basic Transparent. It doesn't affect the ability to randomize screensavers." We owe him thanks for the information, and for a copy of the file for download.

  • Works on OS X 10.7.4
  • Added "screen" option. For each module, you can specify among "Any"(default), "Primary" or "Non-Primary".
  • Any: The module can be displayed on any one of your screens.
  • Primary: Primary screen only (the screen with menu bar).
  • Non-Primary: Any screen, except the primary screen.
  • iPhoto albums should be able to work now.

Known issues:

  • The options of the iPhoto album modules are ignored, only default options will be used.
  • If two different iPhoto album modules are picked for each screen, the behavior is undefined. You may see photos from across the albums on different screens.

Requirements

  • OS X 10.6 or later
