MacWall: Browse desktop wallpapers in Dashboard

4 April 2012 1,555 views No Comment

Dashboard Widgets in OS X haven’t gotten much if any love from Apple in, well, years. Nevertheless, this interface technology, which dates back to OS X 10.4 Tiger, has its fans and adherents as evidenced by the arrival of OneMac’s widget for browsing desktop wallpapers.

What’s the fastest way to access top Mac desktop picture websites like MacWall, Applewallpapers.net, Awesome Wallpapers, Beautiful Pixels, BittBox, FreeVector, HDW, Deviantart and TopDownloads? Browser links get the job done, but don’t offer instant gratification.

OneMag.org’s MacWall Dashboard Widget is pretty darned immediate vis-a-vis putting images in front of your face and it’s free. However, in order to get a photo or other graphic onto your desktop, you will need to use a browser.

Again, for what it’s worth, Apple’s Dashboard Widgets Downloads page hasn’t seen any meaningful updates since late 2010 — come on, guys, get behind Dashboard or just kill it already…
