What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing desKuick for Mac OS X

Mac OS X software desKuick

TOKYO (MacHouse) – I have released four desktop applications so far this month. I have never been so productive since my mother’s death. That’s probably something to do with the weather. February is definitely not my favorite month. Finally, we are under March. And we’ve been enjoying warmer days. Well, I have already submitted my fifth Mac software title to Apple‘s Mac App Store more than 12 hours ago. This new software release is called desKuick.

desKuick is a desktop application that lets you change desktop wallpapers quickly. That’s made possible by its status menu. All you have to do is to explore desKuick’s status menu and select one, and the application will instantly swap desktop wallpapers. Of couse, you could alway change desktop pictures by opening System Preferences. I’ve developed desKuick because I don’t want to open System Preferences each time I have to change desktop pictures.
