Editors' reviewThis free application places a snow globe on your desktop, but has limited uses. In a nutshell, Silvas Digital Snowglobe can be used for fun, decorative purposes or as a calendar and clock. The program doesn't include a help file, nor does it need one since the small, animated snow globe also has limited customization options. It downloads with two available snow scenes, and you can download others from the publisher's Web site. You can change the globe's size, shake up the snow using your mouse, and drag and drop the globe anywhere on your desktop. Silvas Digital Snowglobe attempts to give the effect of a real snow globe by displaying a distorted view of any items seen through the globe. If you're looking for a cheerful way to display the date and time, you'll enjoy this utility's diminutive efforts.
The Silvas Digital Snowglobe is a virtual snowglobe for your desktops that can serve as a decoration, a desktop toy to play with, and a clock/calendar when not in use. The snowglobe features realtime optic effects that simulate the light bending of the globe s water and shell, distorting the appearance of whatever happens to be viewed through the globe. As with real snowglobes, when the Silvas Digital Snowglobe is shaken (by dragging it with the mouse), the falling snow is sent into flurries.
