Oceanic Won­der­land HD

Calm sea wa­ters

Mac|Life - - HOME LIFE - J.R. Book­wal­ter

If you love the ocean but can’t af­ford to travel, there are plenty of ways to bring the spirit of the sea into your liv­ing room, with­out the smell of salt wa­ter and dead fish.

Oceanic Won­der­land HD is one way, and it’s sim­ple to use. A main menu is used to se­lect from five “amaz­ing oceanic video wall­pa­pers”: Trop­i­cal Is­land Waves, Fishes Swim­ming, End­less Waves, Amaz­ing Ocean, or Blue Sea. That’s it, but the video qual­ity is de­cent, and hey, it’s free, so there’s that.

Aside from leav­ing us want­ing more, the app could ben­e­fit from ac­com­pa­ny­ing sound ef­fects. As it stands, there’s no audio at all, pre­sum­ably so the viewer can play back­ground mu­sic or pro­vide their own sooth­ing ocean sounds. But it does seem like an odd omis­sion, even for a ba­sic app like this.

Oceanic Won­der­land HD en­ables you to watch the sea, but sadly pro­vides no sound.
