Editors' review

For users who have password protection on their Mac, looking at the same old log-in screen may become boring after a while. With Loginox for Mac you can now change your log-in background in a matter of seconds. This app allows you to replace the Apple logo on your log-in page, too.

Available as freeware, Loginox for Mac supports the most common image file formats such as JPG, TIF, PNG, and PSD. This application is a straightforward OS X app that is small in size, easy to install, and easy to use. You simply have to drag and drop your image into the main window and the app will change the log-in screen to the desired image. If the image provided isn't in the right aspect ratio, the app will automatically crop the image. To revert back to the default background you just have to press the "reset to the default image" button. The app allows you to change the Apple logo on the log-in screen, too. The steps are basically the same as changing the log-in screen. There's also an option to completely remove the Apple logo from the log-in screen.

Users who love to personalize their Macs will appreciate Loginox for Mac. Since the app is very easy to use, it's suitable for both experts and beginners who wish to tweak their Mac's log-in screen.

    "Too much disk space for one function"

    July 06, 2011   |   By roro01

    Version: Loginox 1.0.3b5

    Pros

    Only one thing - it is free.

    Cons

    Loginox, 11.3 MB - one function.
    SuperDocker, 5 MB - numerous functions, including changing/restoring the login screen background image.

    "Does what it says, without hassle."

    December 26, 2009   |   By sheepguy42

    Version: Loginox 1.0.2b7

    Pros

    Simple, intuitive, fast.

    Cons

    Doesn't offer dual-screen option (which might be an OS implementation limitation).

    Summary

    I have to respect any developer willing and able to slap a relatively idiot-proof GUI on what would otherwise be a tricky and possibly dangerous operation. Not that one is THAT likely to screw their System files up doing this the hard way, but the fact is that it involves mucking about in parts of the System ? that we are not supposed to muck about in.
    However, it would be nice to specify a separate pic for each screen. I understand that Snow Leopard?in all its greatness?may be lacking in implementing this, but I have to wonder if there's a way to patch it in. As more and more people switch to MacBooks and their Pro brethren, I expect more people to be working in a dual-screen environment?at least at home.

    "I have tried it and I like it"

    December 20, 2008   |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: Loginox 1.0.1b1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Very nice idea on my opinion. I like it. Would be nice if the app could support multiple image formats. Maybe the developer should make the user clear that only JPEG files are allowed until now.

    My 2c,

    graphically & sincerely,

    Marc Klein

    "really slowed my system"

    June 06, 2008   |   By bobflorida1

    Version: Loginox 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Running 10.5.3 on an Intel Imac: installed easily. After loading I changed the login screen and restarted. System took almost 3 minutes to restart. Tried a logout and the image had changed properly, but again system was very slow. I used loginox to return to original image and removed loginox from the system. Restart was very fast but I lost all my "login items" from the system preferences. Program needs to be checked, as it wasn't really smooth on my Imac.
