Rainmeter Review

Felix Cheng
Highly customizable desktop customization software
A review of Rainmeter by Felix Cheng

Rainmeter is a desktop customization and enhancement application which adds several tools to your Windows desktop which act as widgets/gadgets. Some of the most popular widgets include CPU usage, memory usage and network traffic. Rainmeter displays these on the desktop with various bars and indicators, depending on the style you choose.

Some of the other optional addons you can activate are RSS feeds, clocks calendars and other system monitors.

The skins and designs available for Rainmeter from online communities (like Devart) are varied and colorful. Many of the coolest ones get featured on the homepage of Rainmeter and remain popular.

This app actually used to be pretty complicated to use, but the developers have taken the time to simplify many aspects. At the moment, Rainmeter is probably 2-3 times easier to use than previously.

The theme which comes installed with the default package is called "Enigma" and immediately makes your desktop look impressive.

Even though this desktop app has some graphics-rich skins available, the program itself remains small and uses very little in terms of system resources, making it a favorite among many.

Rainmeter is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from desktop enhancement software without restrictions. Rainmeter is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
