The app includes our advanced ProTime wallpaper engine which supports 4X more images per day than macOS Big Sur Dynamic Desktop and allows you to customize time and location.
The wallpapers in this app are still and only visually move when changing. If you are looking for motion wallpapers that visually move all the time please see our other apps Magic Window.

75 wallpapers included are from a fixed viewpoint ("Fixed View.") This means you get the exact same view changing to match the time of day. This is most like macOS Dynamic Desktop. To achieve this we set up and manage a professional camera for 24+ hours at the same location.
30 wallpapers are mixes ("Mixed View") where the view changes but the location generally remains the same. To create these we put together several time-lapse sequences and still images to build a narrative wallpaper that feels like spending a day exploring the location. This is most like Microsoft Windows Themes.
Unlike our Magic Window series of apps, the wallpapers in this app are still images set as system wallpaper. There is no visible motion which means no battery drain, no CPU drain, no GPU drain, and no interference with other applications. The wallpaper works with all facets of macOS including Mission Control, Spaces, and Expose.
Internet access is required to download wallpapers.
Downloads can consume up to 12GB of disk space.
This is a premium product that took care and dedication to build. You will not find anything else like it anywhere. The 24 Hour Wallpaper app is designed exclusively for macOS.
