As Mac's OS becomes more complex and customizable, inexperienced users may have trouble accessing appearance options. Deeper (Mountain Lion) for Mac displays many potential customizations in an easy-to-use and effective menu.
Available as a freeware program, no payments or subscriptions are required for full use. Download and installation completed quickly and without any problems. When initializing the program for the first time, you must accept a licensing agreement. Deeper (Mountain Lion) for Mac then begins automatically as a small bar in the display screen. Detailed instructions also popped up separately and were well thought out and comprehensive. This is especially important because beginners are those most likely to use this application. Buttons are easy to identify by name and graphic. From the main section, you can select options in several categories including the dock, Safari, iTunes, QuickTime, and others. Each section has a drop-down menu with clear labels and changes that can be made. Each of these functions well and performs exactly as described in the menu. It is not clear if technical support is available for the program, but there were no programming issues that came up during testing. Outside of the ability to change the appearance and preferences, there were no additional features, but this is to be expected from a freeware program.
With its detailed instructions and well-designed menus, Deeper (Mountain Lion) for Mac seems suitable for beginners. However, more-experienced users would probably find it redundant.
