Editors' Review

by   / June 13, 2011

Why use one static image for your desktop wallpaper when you can automatically rotate a whole slew of your favorite images instead? Cyclone Wallpaper Changer is an easy-to-use program that lets people do exactly that. With an intuitive interface and plenty of options for customization, Cyclone Wallpaper Changer keeps your desktop fresh and interesting.

The program's interface is plain and easy to navigate. Users can select images individually or just choose a folder full of favorites. Next, choose whether you want the program to center, tile, or stretch your images, and set a background color for those that are centered and don't fill up the entire desktop. Our favorite thing about Cyclone Wallpaper Changer was the multitude of options it offered for the rotation frequency; users can set the program to rotate images after a certain number of seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, or months, or on start-up. If you want to disable the rotation for a while without exiting the program, just choose "never," and then switch it back when you're ready. The program can display images randomly or move through the selected images in order, and users can even create different albums of images and switch between them. Although everything about the program is intuitive, it also comes with a well-written Help file that explains its features. Overall, Cyclone Wallpaper Changer doesn't do anything that we haven't seen before in other programs, but its commonsense interface and useful features make it among the better programs of this type that we've tried.

Cyclone Wallpaper Changer installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
