ScreenSleeves for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / June 10, 2013

ScreenSleeves for Mac allows the cover art and other song information to be displayed as the screensaver while a song plays, a useful feature for those who have long playlists during parties or other events. The program easily detects which song is playing and displays the cover art in good quality and with some additional options.

ScreenSleeves for Mac downloads and installs directly into the typical screensaver area, meaning users simply have to navigate to the system preferences menu to activate it. Once selected, the application automatically reads the song that is currently playing on iTunes or Spotify. When the screensaver is active and turns on, the display area takes up approximately one quarter of the screen and moves around as it operates. The cover of the album is displayed well and in good detail. In addition, the album name and the title of the track currently playing shows up along with rating and a slider indicating the song's progress. Both progress bar and rating/popularity options can be switched on or off via the app's appearance settings. Users also have the option to animate the cover art by adjusting the artwork size and 3D effect.

ScreenSleeves for Mac works well to add cover art displays for the currently-playing track to a screensaver, and may be a good addition for those who use their computers as music centers.
