Satellite Eyes for Mac 1.2.4 Review

Automatically see a map of your location with Satellite Eyes for Mac.

Some users find that their computer background images are important. Satellite Eyes for Mac, which automatically changes the background image to a map of the user's current location, is an interesting personalization option for Mac.

Available as a freeware program, Satellite Eyes requires no payments to unlock its full functioning. The program downloaded and installed easily, with no interaction required by the user. Upon startup, the program prompts the user to enable the computer's location settings. It would have been a nice feature if the program took the user to that menu automatically, but it did not. Once this was complete, the background image automatically changed to an aerial map of our location. Several welcome options allowed different sources to be used for the image. Options also existed to change the look of the photo, including adding pixelization and other graphics. When the user changes location, the program can relocate the proper image either manually, or automatically. Technical support was not available, but the program did not have any bugs that presented themselves during our testing, and overall, the setup process was straightforward.

Satellite Eyes for Mac seems suitable for Mac users who are looking for more customization options and enhancements for their desktop. This app sets local aerial images as the computer's background. It is free and functions as advertised.
