One of the coolest features of the new Apple TV is its absolutely stunning new screensavers, which fly you through some of the most gorgeous locations in the world.

Apple hasn’t announced any plans to bring the screensavers over to the Mac yet, but they’re such a perfect fit that developer John Coates created a new Swift app that lets anyone get the beautiful backdrops on their desktop.

Here’s how to do it:

1) Download Aerial from Github.
2) Open the .zip file and double-click Aerial.saver to install.
3) Go to System Preferences >> Desktop & Screen Saver >> Screen Saver
4) Select Aerial
5) Click Screen Saver Options to customize which scenes Aerial uses.


The app has a couple of nice extras, like Auto Load Latest Aerials to keep you up to date. There’s an option to play a different aerial on each display if you use multiple screens, and you can pick favorites to have only certain aerials play.
