OS X gives us Desktop pictures (wallpaper), and options to move the Dock around, and not much more. Whatever customization we make is still surrounded by cold, hard (albeit durable) aluminum. Every Mac looks pretty much like every other Mac.
If what you’d like is a little customization that brings out your feminine side, there’s Cuptakes. The unabashedly personal Desktop wallpapers for the girly girl in you (which makes a great gift– from guy to guy’s girl).
Cuptakes design images work great on MacBook models, Air and Pro, as well as iMacs– 21-inch and 27-inch. How do the images look compared to Apple’s built-in Desktop pictures? Scroll the gallery, click, and apply the selected image.
Even better, Cuptakes lets you color coordinate chosen designs with your iPhone and iPad.
Change the design on your Mac or iPhone or iPad to match your mood of the moment.
There’s not much to complain about here. Cuptakes costs just a few dollars. The Mac version matches designs with the iPhone and iPad version.
Cuptakes has native resolution images for most popular Mac screen sizes, and automatically adjusts to match your Mac’s screen.
Many of the designs work on MacBooks with Retina display. But the entire library of images is decidedly feminine and not likely to grace a man’s man’s Mac screen. Do guys bother to color coordinate wallpaper pictures between Mac and iPhone and iPad?
Cuptakes is a good, inexpensive way to customize a Mac, but I’ve run into a few issues of note. The updates don’t seem to come out every month on schedule. And, on my MacBook Air (an older model) Cuptakes also seems to slow down the Mac’s performance (especially on Microsoft Word). Sometimes I can click on a specific design but a different design is loaded instead. A few clicks later and all is OK again.
