Fallout 4. It’s super legit. For fans of the franchise, NVIDIA has teamed up with the creators, Bethesda, launching a live wallpaper app of all things to Google Play. The Fallout 4 Live Wallpaper features an assortment of bobbleheads from the Fallout game, allowing users to deck out their home screen with their favorites.
The overall animations you will see are very basic, with the bobbleheads sitting on top of a table. When you swipe through your screens, the lighting and positioning will change, but the bobbleheads don’t move. In the settings of the app, you can choose five specific bobbleheads to show off, or you can have the app randomize which bobbleheads are shown. According to the app’s description, there are 20 Fallout 4 bobbleheads to choose from, including Sneak, Melee, Luck, and Agility. (more…)

Meet your next live wallpaper purchase – this is Minima Pro Live Wallpaper, made by the folks at Joko Interactive.
If you were looking for an app that perfectly tackles the current Material Design-style wallpaper trend, but makes it all interactive, alive, and extremely customizable, look no further. From dozens of pre-set themes, to automatic and random setups, to 3D parallax effects, to adjusting things like scale or rotation, this wallpaper could easily gobble up a couple of hours of your life. There is that much it can do. But at the same time, you could have it setup within a minute or two thanks to its randomizer setting.
It can even take a Material-style live wallpaper you have created and quickly turn it into a static wallpaper. Here are a bunch of examples from the app’s creator.
I would try explain the rest of its awesomeness, but the video below does a much better job. This is a visual app that needs to be seen. (more…)
