Holding Pattern Screensaver

By Idle Time Free to try Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
If you enjoy gazing out of an airplane window at the landscape below, the Holding Pattern Screensaver gives you this sensation time and time again. This screensaver brings to your desktop an ample stream of cinematic images photographed through an airplane window. We liked the fact that Holding Pattern contains a variety of images, from picturesque snow-covered mountains to more average fare such as a resting baby. This program's only downside is that it takes up a little too much of your system resources for a screensaver. Nevertheless, we still think Holding Pattern is a beautifully designed, fun app to have on your PC.
