Vapor Trails is an animated desktop wallpaper app of planes flying at high altitude where the planes leave a vapor trail.

I love looking up at the sky and watch passenger planes leave white vapor trail (contrails) in their path. This app, in it's small way, simulates that look on your desktop.

Vapor Trails requires Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) or Lion (10.7)

➜ Runs transparently over your wallpaper.
➜ Appears on all Spaces screens
➜ Have it start automatically at startup at log in
➜ Does not require a a lot of processor power.
➜ Select the number of planes to your liking.
➜ Set the length of the vapor trails
➜ Set the wind direction

"Vapor Trials?" - I can read, I know the app is called "Vapor Trails", but when you open it and it appears on your Mac, it says "Vapor TRIALS." What? Learn to spell! No, I didn't read it wrong. Anyways, "Vapor Trials" fails not only for the spelling, but also for the... -1 Stars for spelling error -3 Stars for the so-called "low-processing power." One plane at the lowest speed, even no plane "trials" uses 2% CPU, which isn't a lot, but what happens when you use 15 planes (the max), super long trails and the highest speed? I don't want to know. Very good idea, but bad exceution.
