Widgets, reinvented

No more boring screens

Easy to add, hard to be without

Add widgets you soon won’t live without: Clocks, calendars, countdowns, hardware stats, network traffic, images, videos and many more. Superlayer displays what matters to you. And it makes it all look beautiful, too.

Widgets as they should be on macOS

Even more capable. Even more you.

Design. Arrange. Repeat.

Widgets can be finely tuned to fit your needs. Change colors, fonts, layouts, everything! Create multiple scenes—each with a different set of widgets for a particular use case. Export your creations in a blink to share them with the world.

Superlayer widgets are high on customizability

Turn your screen in something truly spectacular
