A fairly popular group of apps for the Apple TV has been those that add a bit of scenic ambience to your living room. I’m talking live camera streams around the world or footage of gorgeous waterfalls. Even Apple’s own Aerial screensavers are stunning. One such app with a special twist is Aqua TV, which puts a customizable aquarium on your television screen. It’s beautiful to glance at in your peripheral vision, but also fun to build and personalize.

Apple TV app will wow you with stunning shots of Earth

I’ve always wanted to go into space. The now-familiar view of our “big blue marble” have always fascinated and entranced me, even as a young boy.

With Earthlapse TV, I can stare out of a virtual window from the International Space Station to watch the coast of Northern Australia spin past my high viewpoint, see the aurora borealis as it shimmers above the northern hemisphere, or watch as the world turns from London to Africa beneath my gaze.

This is a gorgeous app and a perfect fit for the big-screen TV in my living room.

Mastering iTunes: Make A Visual Party Playlist With Album Artwork Screensaver [OS X Tips]

iTunes Artwork Screensaver

One of the trickier things about creating a playlist for any party is making sure you have the right music for the people you’ve invited. Sometimes, though, you might want to give this entire nerve-wracking process a miss, and let the guests at your house choose the music from all the songs and artists you have in iTunes on your Mac.

Here’s how to do just that, using nothing more than your Mac and the iTunes Album Artwork screensaver.

Update: Looks like Padbury has taken the screensaver off his Dribble account. If anyone has a mirrored link for others to download, please post in the comments.

We love beautiful wallpapers and screensavers here at Cult of Mac. When Apple User Interface Designer Robert Padbury posted a beautiful screensaver to his Dribble account, we fell in love. The “Minimalist Clock Screensaver” comes in 12-hour and 24-hour versions, and you can grab it now for free to install on your own Mac.
