Minimal macOS application allowing Google Earth View images to be seamlessly used as a wallpaper.


ℹ️ About The Project

Our planet is a beautiful place. The Google Chrome Earth View extension by Google is a wonderful way to deliver stunning satellite images to us every time we open a new tab, inspiring us on our next web adventure. But why stop there? Why don't get impressed by these the wonders of the earth as well when gazing at this more important rectangle on our screen, our wallpaper. PrettyEarth now grants you the opportunity to bring our blue marble to your desktop.

PrettyEarth can be downloaded from the website »
