[Solved] Will iScreensaver work for this?

edited September 2018 in General Discussions
I'd like to create a cross-platform screensaver for vocabulary building, similar to the OS X "Word of the Day" screensaver as seen at: -- the animation is less important than the concept of randomly drawing from a pool of words and definitions.

Would iScreensaver work for creating such a thing? If so, would I be creating an image or video for each word?


  • iScreensaver might work for this, using a combination of several features:

    1. The Image layer : could hold a background image.
    2. The Overlay / Caption layer: allows you to create a styled text block. This could include your word definition.
    3. The Overlay /Image layer: could contain an optional logo.
    4. The Sequence settings with Shuffle and using the "Resume with previous item"

    Most of these features are described here:

    iScreensaver is available as a free unlimited time Trial Download, so you can test this out before making your purchase decision.

    Good Luck!
