Description:

Farensius Desktop matches your Mac's wallpaper to the current weather condition.

There is a set of 5 default wallpapers representing different weather types.

For the avid photographers, you are in for a treat because Farensius Desktop also lets you assign your own photos to each weather type. Simply drag and drop your photos to the matching wallpaper previews in Preferences.

Farensius Desktop also does the following:

- Display the current weather on your menu bar.
- Display a 5-day forecast and extended weather report on your menu drop-down.

--

Note: If the temperature does not seem correct for your city, try to be more specific. For example you can use the following format for the City field: "CITY, STATE/PROVINCE, COUNTRY".

GREAT! - I really like using this app, it's simple and to the point. On the menu bar it shows the temperature. The wallpaper tells you if it is sunny, overcast, rainy, or stormy outside. I am thoroughly pleased by this app, though I do have some suggestions, like take into account night time. It just doesn't seem to fit when it's night outside, and the desktop shows sunny. Also, the ability to hide the background but keep the temperature indicator on the menubar would be nice.

Review by mcguireland

Doesn't recognize current weather - Version 1.0/May 6 2012 : It's been storming and raining the past few hours, but it still shows its sunny (along with the background staying sunny). I have it set to update every minute, switched it to every 5, and so forth. I've restarted, uninstalled, yadda yadda. Basically I troubleshooted it to see if it could change, but its still showing 75.F and Sunny as I'm looking at lightning out my window. Unless it can be updated and fixed, its not worth the 1$ if its not going to change the background accordingly like its one, and only, feature. The temp and icon on the dock are apart of the free version, so its kind of a waste. But thats what these reviews are for, right? Take care.

Review by VoicOfReason

Great! Lacking support for more weather modes and night modes - This is great! I love the ability to select your own images. My suggestions for improvement: 1. The ability to add an entire folder for a given weather "condition" (e.g. sunny, cloudy, etc.) and then have it randomly select an image within that folder 2. More weather conditions (e.g. sleeting, foggy, hot, sub-zero) 3. Night versions of weather conditions: a different image for cloudy will appear if it is cloudy but it is dark out)

Review by Prototype16

This is an awesome app - I love seeing the wallpaper change, and the app works without fail. I especially love the ability to change what you want each weather's wallpaper to be. The only thing I wish it had is nighttime support. For example, it's currently dark out, but clear, so my wallpaper is a bright sun over rolling green hills. Doesn't match up well with the overall stellar experience of this app. I still recommend it though.

Review by jax0809

Great App - Seems to be working very well so far! It is a very clever take on weather and is very user friendly. One thing that I would like to see added is a new desktop background for "night time." Other than that, no major complaints. Definitely would reccomend.
