Cycle Launchpad backgrounds – OS X Lion

When Apple announced the release of it’s latest OS X variant (OS X Lion) one it’s flag ship features was the ‘launchpad’. Providing mac users with a ‘pad’ similar to the screens found on their other iOS devices, where all installed applications can be organised into ‘pages’ and folders, much like the iPhone and iPad interfaces.

Well this new feature clearly was enough for the avid developers over at Infinite Loop, as the launchpad also hides a little secret/easter egg. With the launchpad … erm … launched, press and hold the applecmd key on your keyboard and press the ‘b’ button to cycle through various variations on your desktop wallpaper..
