Muzei Plugin Brings Your Favorite Comic Book Covers to Your Homescreen

We have another plugin for those of you who can’t get enough of the Muzei live wallpaper, titled Comic Cover. With this plugin, fans of comic books – mostly Marvel for now – can access countless comic book covers, then apply them to their homescreen. 

Unlike many of the other plugins, Comic Cover has a refresh interval, which is perfect for people like me who can get easily tired of looking at the same wallpaper all day long. What can I say, I like change.

The plugin, much like Muzei itself, is completely free. Go check it out on Google Play.

    awesomen im gonna use it and swap between it and blipfoto extension (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mona.android.blipfotomuzei.blipfoto)

    This is awesome, just need to allow you to select the heroes you want to see!

    What can I say, I like change.

    I can honestly say I wish I was the same.

    And with that said, Comic Cover is a super nice addition to the fantastic Muzei.

    Idk if you guys have reported on the music extension. It changes the wallpaper based on album art. I love it since I’m always listening to music

      They have

      Are you talking about Taskei? I couldn’t get it to work for me.

  • GutterIsATool

    Yeah. All I’m getting are crashes.

    Also, I love Muzei, but as someone who only has one homescreen, I find it very annoying to only see the left side of every picture. I would really like a center on homescreen option.

    • nmaxfield

      i would love that. i use the google experience launcher on my moto x, so all i get is the left side of every picture as well. would be awesome if you could manually set where pictures would center.

        @GutterIsATool:disqus and @nmaxfield:disqus that’s a very good point. I’ve had some experience working with the launcher apps so I’ve added this in as an enhancement request. Oh yeah, I guess I should explain that I’m the author of the extension.

  • nmaxfield

    force closing for me on vzw moto x :-/ (tried uninstalling and reinstalling)

    • Pedro

      I guess VZW hasn’t certified it yet.
      It will be available in 6 short weeks.

    • Walter Partlo

      Same problem here. Tried to clear app data and cache as well.

    • Kevin

      No crashes on my moto x here.

      • nmaxfield

        what android version are you running? i’m on 4.4 rooted with xposed framework + gravitybox. just trying to narrow down what’s affected. judging by the reviews, its more than just moto x having issues.

    • Simon MacDonald

      Hey all, I have a feeling I know what was causing all the crashes. I’m running the backend for this app on a free Node hosting service and I don’t think it could keep up with the attention this post gave it 🙂

      Some of you have mentioned that it seems to be working now so if you can give it another try. If you are still having problems feel free to hit my up on twitter @macdonst and I’ll see if I can resolve it for you.

      I don’t make any money off this app but I still want it to be awesome!
