Introducing Mach Desktop 4K version 3.0: The most advanced and beautiful wallpaper application ever conceived for a personal computer! Mach Desktop 4K features 50 stunning dynamic Themes; allows you to load your own Videos, GIFs, or Quartz Compositions as Wallpaper, and allows you to add over 30 different Widgets to your Desktop. Choose from a huge variety of meticulously crafted dynamic Themes from categories including: Space, Fantasy, Architecture, Fields, Nature, Holiday, Aquariums, Fireplaces, Abstract Themes, and much more! Mach Desktop 4K also features GPU-acceleration support so Themes use little-to-no CPU — freeing up your computer for other tasks.
If that still wasn’t enough, with the Widget Manager you can add Widgets to your Desktop with a single click! Select a Widget and set its size, font, foreground color, and background color — and easily position a Widget anywhere you want. Choose from over 30 different Widgets including Time, Date, Current Weather, 12 hour Weather forecast, 5 day Weather forecast, a variety of Clocks, and much much more. You can even add Web pages to your Desktop with the Web Page Widget, or add your own Custom Text Widgets (including Emojis) to your Desktop super easily. Don’t feel like adding and customizing Widgets on your own? No problem! Mach Desktop 4K can automatically add Widgets positioned, colored, and tailored for each individual Theme. With all these features, Mach Desktop 4K has no equal and is the only application of its kind!

Ratings and Reviews
Downloaded app which is kind of big (927MB). The app is easy to use and runs smooth. However, out of the entire set of ‘live’ backgrounds, only a few are actually have decent active graphics. The ‘Milky Way’ background seems to be the most detailed one. Others have very littly, to no animation at all. I would recommend the regular Mack Desktop and not the 4K.
Great App, needs more!
Thanks for this great program.
For the most part, it does what it's supposed to do...
However, there are weak points:
- "Reload" menu option doesn't seem to function
- "Automatically Add Recommended Widgets" doesn't seem to do anything
- Sometimes, after OS sleep/lock, the computer crashes/freezes, especially with videos > 30 FPS and with AUDIO tracks
- Even with "Allow Audio" off, the app prevents MacOS from sleeping due to an active audio signal
It would be nice if it could load a url and playlist, too.
Either way, it's still the best in class... Now, take it to the next level!
Won't run with Big Sur
I liked the app before I upgraded to Big Sur, OS 11. Now it will not run. Is there an update? I can't find it.
