DashSaver v1.2 released - Universal Binary

I recently recompiled and released DashSaver as a Universal Binary. It now will run fine on Intel and PowerPC computers.

Go give it a download. There are still two major feature requests:

  1. Secure screensaver - when 'Ask for password on wake' is turned on, it will hide the dashboard
  2. Dual Screens - the semi-transparent, colored background under DashSaver won't show up on the second monitor

You can also catch a great audio review of DashSaver over at the MacReview Cast (mp3, it's at the beginning, the first reviewed freeware app)

Update July 30, 2012: I've compiled a version for 10.6 and higher that you can download here.
