💬 Why a screen saver?:
In general, screen savers are not necessary on modern computers and operating systems. Screen savers were originally created to prevent image burn-in on CRT (cathode ray tube) displays, which is no longer a concern with modern LCD and LED displays.
However, some people still choose to use screen savers for various reasons, such as to display photos or artwork, to provide visual entertainment. Ultimately, whether or not you need a screen saver on your macOS device is a matter of personal preference. If you enjoy having a screen saver or find it useful in some way, then go ahead and use one. Preferentially the Emoji Saver 😎.
💬 How can you contact me?
💬 If you get the message “You cannot use the Emoji Saver with this version of macOS.”. What should I do?
This is a generic Apple error message. In 99% of all cases, this helps: Try closing and reopening the System Settings and switching from the Emoji Saver to a different and back again.
If the problem persists, have a look at the Help page or contact me by mail or Twitter.
💬 What is the difference between the standard and and the lite edition?
The lite edition is very small because it does only display the emoji graphics from Apple. There are no other differences anymore.
💬 Are there any keyboard shortcuts while the saver is active?
No, Apple stopped supporting keyboard input within screen savers as of macOS Catalina.
💬 Do you plan to support more brands of emojis?
Currently, only JoyPixels, Noto Emoji, OpenMoji and Twemoji offer licenses that allow me to use their emojis. The Apple emojis are already included on every macOS machine. Nevertheless, integration of another brand would be pretty easy.
💬 Is there a version for Windows?
Currently not. If you are or if you know a passionate Windows developer, please let me now. I would be happy to pass on my knowledge.
💬 macOS reports that Emoji Saver is signed by “Park Bench GmbH”. What’s that about?
“Park Bench GmbH” is a german company. It’s developer account is used to distribute the saver.
