Last week I posted an application review about Ravissant. Ravissant offers many features and one is the ability to change your login background. Today I will be reviewing DeskSync. DeskSync offers users the ability to change their login background to their current dekstop wallpaper with one simple click. DeskSync was released by MacThemes user Joey Hoer, also known as joeyh. It is possibly the easiest application I have every used.
DeskSync is a great application based on another MacThemes user’s application called Desktop Syncer. All you have to do to sync your desktop wallpaper to your login background is open the application and type in your administrators password if you have one. When you type your password in, a window pops up telling you that “Backgrounds have been synced.” It’s that simple! Another way to sync your wallpaper is by dragging the wallpaper onto the application’s icon in the dock. This will change the user and login wallpaper. Do you want to know how it works? Joey explains to user’s on MacThemes, “DeskSync replaces DefaultDesktop.jpg, but offers an alternative method if the user knows how to edit applescript.”
The MacThemes post consists of one page. A couple people who commented on the post had problems syncing, saying that their background never changed. They did not, however, say that their background got messed up, it just never changed. I do not know why, but mine seemed to sync successfully. Therefore, I would like to warn our readers by saying that their is not a 100% chance your background will change by using this application. Other than this glitch, it seems like DeskSync is a very easy to use application, taking little time to change your login background to your wallpaper!
Here’s a quick summary on this weeks review. DeskSync, an easy to use application by Joey Hoer, changes your login background to your dekstop wallpaper. You can get DeskSync on MacThemes. All you have to do to change your background is open the application and you are done! A bug that was found is that your background will not always change, meaning this application is not very consistent. With these features and bugs in mind, DeskSync earns a four out of five stars!
