Hey guys
Have you found an alternative to the outdated AppStartSaver, which is not running on the actual iOS?

Thanks for your answer!

  • Hello Thomas,

    I'm afraid not, and with the release of macOS Catalina it's likely to become impossible to start an app from a screensaver, as all screensavers will be running in a sandboxed environment where they can't access other files or apps.

    Unfortunately, that means we can't ever have Johnny Castaway as a screensaver again on Mac. In fact, most 3rd-party screensavers are likely to stop working.

    Having said that, we'll remain on the lookout for a solution.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!
