GT Ripple is a software application that adds a rippling effect to the desktop and active windows. It includes a useful configuration set that can be managed by novices with ease.
Once started, the tool creates an icon in the system tray area and applies the rippling effect with default settings.
From the tray icon's context menu you can bring up the Settings panel to adjust the ripple frequency, height, amplitude, perspective, and speed.
Additionally, you can make the icons transparent, set the refresh delay time, enable GT Ripple's autorun at system startup, disable the mirror effect, hide desktop icons or avoid rippling them, change the wave direction, edit the region, as well as pick a ripple mask color.
It is also possible to temporarily suspend GT Ripple's activity instead of exiting the tool. It runs on a very low amount of CPU and RAM, so it doesn't affect overall performance. Since the app minimizes to the tray, it doesn't interrupt user activity either.
Unfortunately, GT Ripple has not been updated for a while, and it does not work on newer operating systems. Nevertheless, it gives dynamics to the desktops running on older operating systems, making it seem interactive.
