Whatever it is that lies beyond our skies millions of lightyears away has always fascinated humankind. We still wonder how another inhabited planet's atmosphere may be like, or the geography, or even the flora or fauna.

Faraway Planet 3D Screensaver is an app that will give you an idea of what might await beyond the stars

The entire premise of this screensaver is to showcase what it would be like to live on a foreign planet. While it does bring alien plant life to the picture, it does retain some earth-like elements, such as surfaces full of water in liquid state.

The colors that are used are very vivid and beautiful, and while they may be more or less realistic, they do manage to spark your imagination in one way or another.

There is no actual color palette, except for the fact that everything is colored in an almost borderline fantasy manner.

The music itself also contributes to the overall eerie atmosphere that is created with the help of soothing meditation music that will send chills down your spine.

The amount of 3D objects along with the heavy use of water as a reflective surface makes the app have some performance issues, such as a drop in FPS, making it unsuitable for older systems.

These problems were observed mostly while running the app in animated wallpaper mode, probably because of interference with the other apps running in the foreground.

If you are also experiencing performance drops, you may have to take into consideration reducing some of the visual features from the settings menu. These include screen resolution and aspect ratio, overall graphics options, volume control and much more.

Faraway Planet 3D Screensaver is a great way to escape the mundane life you may be living, as it is an excellent choice if you're the seeing plain green vegetation and blue skies.
