Appfall is an interactive screensaver just like the app wall at WWDC. It includes two mini games that can be played using app icons as giant pixels.
Appfall downloads app icons from the App Store top 400 charts for any region, category, or chart type, and drops them from the top of the screen laid out in a colorful rainbow. It can be set to display either Mac apps or iPhone or iPad apps.
It can also be set to display the more popular apps more often, can be set up to run as a screensaver, and supports multiple screens.
Appfall is also a great way to find new apps. Point at any icon to see the app's name, then click to see more information and a link to the App Store.
In the blocks mini game, the goal is to get as high a score as possible by clearing lines. Clearing more lines at once gives a higher score bonus. Use the arrow keys to move, rotate, or drop the blocks.
In App Command you must defend towers made out of the number one app, by sending missiles to destroy the attacking app icons.
Fixes issues retrieving data due to change in data format.

Nice little screensaver but have two requests - Great job on this and for $.99 this was a no brainer. I would like to see this APP get installed as a screensaver under OSX system preferences so that you don't have to manually run it. It would also be great if you could control how quickly the ICONS fell going down the screen. Otherwise great job!

Is not actually a screen saver... - I purchased this application because I thought it would work as a screen saver. It sort of does. You have to disable the built-in screen saver, configure the application, hide the application, and then the application will pop to the foreground when the timer expires. You cannot quit the application, or it won't work at all. I don't really consider that a screensaver, for the primary reason that it then disables my corporately mandated password lock, alternatively you can set both to happen at the same time, but the screensaver lock will overwrite this application. If you want a screensaver, keep looking.
