1. Description of Desktop Escape

Desktop Escape gives you over 90 desktop background images. Each one features a new travel destination to inspire your next trip. Your desktop wallpaper will update regularly to give you a new image and destination to explore. You can update how often your desktop wallpaper changes and favourite images in the app settings. The app also displays information on the featured destination – a cheap flight price from your nearest airport and the local temperature and time in that destination. By clicking the ‘Escape’ button within the app you will be redirected to the KAYAK website to see more flight options. The app provides cached values based on previous user searches. Prices may change and offers may no longer be available. Desktop Escape (and any updates or upgrades thereto) is offered by KAYAK Software Corporation (such entity together with its affiliates, “KAYAK”) when you configure use with KAYAK.com.
