The Roku is an amazing little device. It plugs into any TV and turns it into a Smart-TV with apps like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, etc, and does a pretty good job compared to its competitors. That being said, it’s not “perfect”. Lets start with the screensaver… The default Roku screensaver is pretty boring, and the other downloadable 3rd party screensavers are nothing to write home about… So lets see if we can fix that problem.
One of the Roku competitors is Google’s Chromecast. The Chromecast is a pretty neat little device too. It basically does the same thing the Roku does, minus some features… But, where the Chromecast exceeds is it’s screensaver. It has a beautiful screensaver that shows the time, weather, and displays gorgeous photography in the background. So why can’t the Roku have something similar? Well, you’re in luck, cause it does now!
Introducing, Quintescenic! It’s a Roku screensaver that is inspired by the Chromecast screensaver. It shows you the time and current weather conditions, all while displaying beautiful photography in the background. Most of the Photography was provided by Shannon Ryan
