Yo, @dustin. I don't see any cats. What's the deal?

@rrhoover There's a cat right on my menu bar.

Hi folks! Excited to share Wallcat with the Product Hunt community! Wallcat is a simple app that automatically updates you Mac's desktop to a new a new beautiful image every day. If you've had the same stale image, are still rocking a default Apple background, or are simply looking to keep your computer feeling fresh, feel to check out Wallcat. I'm the sole developer / designer on Wallcat, happy to answer any questions!

Feel free to read more about the origins of Wallcat over on Medium: https://medium.com/@dustin/wallc...
@dustin I noticed this doesn't seem to change all the desktops (at least in El Capitan), just the first one (or whatever was the active one when I launched the app). Is this within your control?

@joostschuur unfortunately I haven't been able to find an API from Apple that exposes this. I have another approach in mind that may do the trick. Thanks for the feedback, when I solve this problem, it'll absolutely be in Wallcat <3
@dustin beautiful! I wonder if there will ever be a day where gifs can be wallpapers.
👊I've been loving the serendipity for months now. Congrats on getting Wallcat out there, @dustin.

thanks @dougw. I really appreciate the kind words and your help testing it :)
Been really enjoying having this on my computer while testing. It's fun because you forget about the app and then suddenly there's a great new image you notice. And the curation's top notch. People have complimented me on my background image a few times already.
My daily routine: Get to my desk, commence trackpad gesture for Show-Desktop (a lot like giving your computer a high-five), breath in the Wallcat “Structure” channel newness. A nice little eye-candy gift waiting for you every morning. Bravo @dustin!
