Here at DL, we have become fans of Roman Nurik’s latest creation, the Muzei live wallpaper. It lets us forget all of those hours of heated internal debate on deciding which wallpaper looks the hottest, and has essentially claimed its rightful place on most of our home screens.
Yet still, Nurik has only partially solved the whole problem with his newest app, because even now, we have to decide between hordes of different third party Muzei extensions, a problem I think we don’t mind having. The app displays wallpapers in such a beautiful way and there are so many good extensions already, that it’s quite fun seeing each outdo each other.
Which are the best five for the month of March? Let’s check them out.
It’s been exactly one year since Roman Nurik introduced the DashClock widget to the Android community. Since then, that app has seen crazy popularity, with many developers building onto its platform with their very own extensions making it even more useful. Apps like DashClock are a prime example of why Android is so sweet. With that said, Roman released a new app to Google Play last night, titled Muzei. (more…)
Phase Beam has easily been one of the greatest live wallpapers of all time. Introduced as the purplish, bubbly, floaty live wallpaper to Nexus devices, it has been a go-to for us even after so many years. But as you know, we saw the introduction of a new variant with the Google Play Edition devices called Sun Beam, that brought us the same bubbly floaty joy only in a red and orange colorway. It’s beautiful. Have you ever wanted other colors, though? Like, what if you could customize Phase Beam to match your current mood or theme? You can.
An app called Custom Beam LWP was introduced to the Google Play store within the last week that brings Phase Beam to you with a load of customizable features. You can change multiple colors of its appearance, adjust settings for things like the beam angle or gradient angle, tweak the speed, and even have it change depending on your battery state.
Did I mention that it’s free?
The new Google boot animation and SunBeam live wallpaper that are currently exclusive to the Google Play Editions of the HTC One and Galaxy S4 have already been pulled and released for our tinkering pleasure. Thanks to the release of the GPL files (similar to factory images) for each phone by JBQ, members of XDA were able to get inside and pull out these two goodies. We’re still awaiting the arrival of the new Camera app, but we’ll take these two for now. (more…)
One of the snazzy new features that iOS 7 users will be able to take advantage of once Apple has released it, is a sweet 3D-like homescreen/wallpaper. When titling your iOS device, the homescreen icons will appear to move around, allowing you a different viewing angle of whatever wallpaper is set behind them. It’s definitely neat, but definitely not new, either. (more…)
