What it is
- The iOS 7 lockscreen screensaver for OS X reproduces the iOS 7 feeling on your mac
- It's perfect to match with your iPhone at home or even at work
- It took me some nights and a bunch of coffee to make it :)
- I took some inspiration at Andrew Ambrosino's OS X concept based on iOS 7. His work is to be seen here: link and the idea was used with his agreement
Notes & tips
- The custom text must be validated with 'return' key to take effect
- Double-click the wallpaper in the preferences to browse your computer for your custom wallpaper
Last update: Version 3.2 (See version history here)
How to install & configure
- Minimal tested working OS X version is 10.6 on intel chips
- Retina displays could encounter some issues depending on graphic card (see below for more details)
Troubleshooting & know issues
- Computers in polish language don't access options yet
- The dots in column between digits will only show round from OS X 10.8. This is because the Avenir next font is not installed by Apple on earlier versions. I cannot distribute it for free as it's not a free font
- Some graphic cards built with retina computers are not compatible with the program I used to make the screensaver. This is a known issues by the Apple Team. If someone with a retina display lives in Strasbourg, France, contact me so I could try to fix it as I don't have a retina computer myself
- Try turning off the HD, the Background animation or the 'show unlock text' in the screensaver options on retina displays or old computers if you encounter problems and see if it helps until next update
- Thanks for all feedback, articles, support, and kind words
- Special thanks to Pbell from Developpez.com who helped me creating the automated iOS 7 screensaver installer
