Let it snow on your desktop and have Santa and his reindeer fly around your screen for that Extra Festive Season Cheer, while snow piles up on top of your windows (really!) and at the bottom of the screen. Maybe there's a polar bear somewhere too.

There are lots of options to control the snow fall, the wind, Rudolf's red nose, the size of the snowflakes, Santa, the bear, the snowdrops, etc.

Optionally you can have snow on your second display too.

NOTE: If you have trouble starting iSnow you can hold down the option-key while starting the application, that will reset the settings.

iSnow Classic, the classic Snow since 1984.


Release Notes:

- fixes for multi-monitor screens setup.
- small update with startup of the application.

Fixed 2.0.5 Crashes - I have loved this app for a very long time. It adds a touch of wintery class to my desktop and cheers me up when I see santa and his rieghndeer fly a cross my screen. But today I updated to 2.0.5 and the app crashes instantly and is no longer usable. Needs a fix ASAP Update. The program was quicly fixed and working wonderfuly.

Version 2.0.1
Review by horserider936

fix please! - This app was GREAT for about 20 minutes. I closed the app and when I tried to open it again not 5 minutes later, it wouldn't open and hasn't since. I have deleted and tried reinstalling it and it still won't work. Once it is fixed, it will be wonderful. I just hope it is before the holidays!

Version 2.1.0
Review by mtdewulf

XSnow for OSX - A nice and simple app reminiscent of the old XSnow, which works well with a single monitor. Unfortunately, the multi-monitor support is lacking, at least on Mavericks. For one, I can’t get snow to display on more than one screen (even when “All connected displays” is selected). Also, it appears that the snow drifts are accumulating on the wrong screen. I.e. snow will pile up on screen 1 for a window that is on screen 2, so the snow just appears to float in the middle of the desktop. Update: Fixed in version 2.1.0. Multiple monitor support is working nicely now, though you have to disable separate spaces per display.
