it is okay

by liagha on July 15, 2022

This is a good, free screensaver. It has a variety of settings and many scenes. It would rate very high except for one shortcoming: I cannot manually move from one scene to the next. So for me, it fails on this lack.

by Dave on June 5, 2022

3 stars because I have this on my macbook pro and apple tv and it's awesome on those, but trying to put it on my windows machine and I got the same "black screen" experience that some others mentioned. (WIndows 10, latest updates). I wonder if it's due to my graphics configuration or something. (multiple graphics adapters and monitors). Hopefully some day it will work for windows, too.

by Rob on April 19, 2022

Just shows black on latest version of Windows 10.

by Jaxson on April 2, 2022

Doesn't work on windows.

Screensavers Planet: We recently tested it to work on Windows 10 and Windows 11.

by Lukas on November 2, 2021

I love this screensaver, but this is definitely a battery hog when just using the OTA screensavers. If you download a lot of these screensavers it takes up a lot of storage so I like to use the screensaver OTA. Even on the M1 Macbook Pro the battery depletes rather rapidly using the screensaver that way. For that it gets 2 less stars.

Crashing many times. except it is good

Doesn't work on my new imac 24"

by Sherry on July 14, 2021

doesnt work for 3 screens

by Dankkster on June 18, 2021

I keep installing it but for some reason the screensaver stays the same every time. How do I change it?

by Dimitris on April 8, 2021

Downloaded for both my iMac 27", and MacBook Pro on Catalina and works perfect
Also installed on my Windows 10 Games machine and works well. You do however need a good graphics card on Win10, at least 2gb

by Marco on March 31, 2021

Awesome screensaver! My only issue with it is that you can't choose a specific one. A deticated button to choose a specific one would be nice. Also im missing the text that usually appears at the bottom for a biref moment

by Poochy on February 28, 2021

Running OS Big Sir, and it works great!

by pam on February 25, 2021

awesome that it still works

by Drugi on February 15, 2021

It works for me. Beautiful videos of clouds.

It was just giving me a black screen.

by Amanda on September 3, 2020

One of the best one but there should be 4k version.

by talhaboy on August 2, 2020

the screensaver is amazing but there is a small text that actually bothers me though, could anyone help me eradicate that texts? thank you

by Satria A on June 18, 2020

I love it!

Using it on Macbook Air with Mojave 10.14.2. The screen just goes blank when the screensaver is about to start. Any idea why?

by Abhishek Mitra on January 22, 2019

Screensaver Filename: Aerial.scr
VirusTotal: 0
Score: 4 / 5
Tested on: 2019-01-09
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro (full updated)

Need a good PC to run this one.

by Joe Dirt on January 9, 2019

Have I done it wrong? Downloading Aerial.saver.zip, unzipping ... Contents folder does not have .saver file. Tried to simply rename .saver.zip to .saver, does not work either

by matricaria on December 18, 2018

Awesome screensaver. If you're looking for an up-to date version of this screensaver with 4K videos and many other features, visit the project homepage to download: https://github.com/JohnCoates/Aerial

by tim on November 20, 2018

Is there any way to make it offline? Or download just 2-3 video and set its path within the app? It's bit disappointing that I need to connect to internet everytime to use this.

by Harry on October 6, 2018

It is - or rather was - truly stunning screensaver, however as soon as you move to Mojave (am on the latest Beta version) it ceases to function!!

by Howard on July 7, 2018

Great screen saver. However, I am beta testing MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) and the screen saver does not work with that version. It will need to be updated.

by Ken Smith on June 26, 2018

Running MacBookPro14,2 with macOs 10.13.5 (17F77) I've experienced total jamming after a few seconds of beautiful scenery view. Looked like synchronisation issue of display, healed as soon as clock is set to be displayed. Then, just awesome!

by Eva on June 18, 2018

This screen saver is not working on my Windows 10 machine. I think it would be very beautiful, but can't get it to work.

by Juan Rodriguez on June 9, 2018

Not working, any special requirements

by Rassie on May 12, 2018

Hands down, this is THE BEST SCREENSAVER I have ever come across.

by Jamillos on May 4, 2018

Great screensaver but only works while clock is displayed.

by Francis on April 30, 2018

This screensaver is excellent and is an amazing piece of software. However i had discovered a bug where certain screensavers appear to shake in a glitchy fashion. Almost as if it it is trying to adjust to a different screen resolution. I would really like this fixed to have a perfect screensaver.

by Sergey on January 9, 2018

its pretty good

by charlie on January 5, 2018

This is amazing as the other have said just tried it quickly and it is great - you get short Aerial videos each time. Great on a big retina screen.

by DRS on October 13, 2017

The most breathtaking screensaver in full performance.

by Mirza on September 30, 2017

This screensaver is BREATHTAKING on Windows 10, especially with a nice size display. Make sure to follow the instructions on unzipping a file. Enjoy!

by Hey! on September 12, 2017

I love the pictures, but i wish I knew where these places were! I suggest adding the information at the bottom
Of the screen!

by Kim Cromer on August 20, 2017

I was awestruck. It's so beautiful <3.

by Priya Thomas on June 22, 2017

I never give feedback on anything online. This screen saver is outrageously awesome!

by Brandon on May 23, 2017

It is the most incredible screensaver I have ever seen! Gold star for the people behind it. I'm totally blown away!!!

by IONAZ on May 11, 2017

When Windows Firewall blocks everything, then this screensaver gets an error message and cuts!

Screensavers Planet: The high-quality videos are much too large in file size to be included in the download here, so the screensaver streams them from Apple's servers. If you block its connection to the internet, the Aerial Views screensaver will not work.

by KC on May 10, 2017

Nice views

by Xicocf on March 18, 2017

Amazingly beautiful. Putting this on my 55" tv in my living room while music plays on my stereo is great for entertaining. Love it.

perfect best screen saver

by Amazing on November 26, 2016

Guau... It's amazing!!!

by raul on October 29, 2016

Gorgeous, but on Windows 10 my monitor stays on indefinitely, ignoring its auto-off setting. It's only supposed to do that when viewing full-screen video, not for screensavers.

by Steve G on September 4, 2016

mi piace , ma questo screensaver dovrebbe includere l'Italia
