The World View Wallpaper uses gallery-quality photography to transport you to locations around the world, from Jerusalem to the Teton mountains.
Never settle for a boring, static wallpaper again. The World View Wallpaper changes your desktop background once every minute. You can set the app to use your local time - or, use it as a world clock and display images based on the location's time zone. Are people awake in London? Find out by looking at your wallpaper!

The World View Wallpaper app lives in your taskbar. To change which location is displayed, simply click the taskbar icon. Location images are downloaded slowly in the background, and only one location (~500mb) is cached at any time. We've optimized our code to have minimal effect on performance and battery life, so enjoy your world wallpapers without worry!

Installation Note: Because the app overwrites all of your existing desktop wallpapers, we encourage you to make a backup of your wallpapers before running the app for the first time. If you have any questions about the app, please do not hesitate to contact us at Contact@Fabricate.IO
In spite of being a computer geek at heart, I’ve always striven to maintain my connection to nature and the world. I try to be mindful of the day as the sun progresses into the night. It helps put my daily life in context.
This app enhances that approach to living. For the last day I’ve been using San Francisco. The photos are gorgeous, so far centering on the Golden Gate Bridge at various times of day, against various hues of sky. I’m pretty sure the angle / location may change each day. (? I haven’t used it long enough. If not, that could be cool!)
Great idea, but...
I would love being able to change the time it stays. I don’t really want it to update every minute
Neat idea, but...
It doesn’t resize the wallpaper to fill my screen. Instead, it leaves horizontal black bars above and below the image, which drives me nuts. I won’t be using it unless they update the app and allow users to specify “fill screen” instead of “fit to screen"
