macOS App Review: “MacLampsX”

Image from the webpage.

I like to try out new Mac Apps that I come across. One that I found today is MacLampsX. This one seemed appropriate for the season.

What does it do? it puts a border of Christmas lights and ornaments around the perimeter of your Mac computer screen. It can also simulate snow on the screen.

This is a ‘just for fun’ App. It doesn’t do anything other than bring some Christmas spirit to your display. The App has been around for a few years. At lease since 2005. It has been updated (version 3.0b3) recently enough to run without problem on macOS Big Sur 11.0.1. A few ‘third-party’ downloads are available with add-on bulb types so that you can customize your display.

if you want to make your desktop more of the Holiday season, this is an App you should try.
