Alien Worlds

Quick Look: This outer space themed screensaver displays original work by artist C. Shawn Smith along with images from NASA. Most of the images feature distant planets, galaxies, nebula, and other awe-inspiring deep-space spectacles. Images randomly appear and move about the screen. You'll sometimes be treated to a full-screen rendition of a single image, while at other times a half-dozen or more small images scroll, jump, and come and go.

A welcome addition to this screensaver would be the ability to select how you want the images to appear and behave. However, a nice departure from all the other screensavers is this app's ability to behave as a regular channel. It will appear in your "My Channels" list and selecting it will immediately activate the screensaver.

For regular screensaver operation after Roku inactivity, however, you will still need to go select "Settings" from the main Roku screen, scroll to "Screensavers", and select this screensaver from the list of those installed.
