My Favorite Wallpaper App: Backdrops

We take wallpapers pretty seriously around here. For the most part, I enjoy a few of the pre-installed wallpapers on select devices, but to really provide a sense of individualism for my smartphone, I require a fancy wallpaper and “hot” icon pack. Focusing purely on the wallpapers, there’s one app I tend to use more than any other, and that’s Backdrops.

We have written about Backdrops on a couple of occasions, but in reality, we talk about it all of the time. Whenever someone asks us about a wallpaper we are using, it’s typically always from Backdrops. This is what makes Backdrops so clutch. It’s not a set amount of wallpapers in an app, as people are always adding new and awesome papers inside. Only high quality content is approved by the Backdrops team, meaning you will only see great wallpapers.  (more…)

NVIDIA and Bethesda Launch Fallout 4 Live Wallpaper, Filled With Bobbleheads

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…)
