This Wallpaper Pack is Hot: Plastexo

Now that you have a new icon pack to consider, wouldn’t it be great if someone gave you a wallpaper pack to go with it? Oh, well, would you look at that. Here’s one!

This pack is called Plastexo, and it is indeed hot. It’s very minimal and flat, with some Material Design influence, but you get quite a wide range of options in it that aren’t just MD abstracts. There are 110 or so 3200×2560 wallpapers that include a variety of landscapes, Lollipop classics, and even some ultra minimal hex art.

The pack is entirely free, includes Muzei support, and is one of the most well-designed apps I have used in a while.  (more…)

Download: 25 Wallpapers From the OnePlus 2

The OnePlus 2 may not arrive until August 11, but one of their lead OxygenOS designers just handed out the phone’s wallpapers ahead of time to “keep the hype up.” There are supposed to be 27 wallpapers in the bunch, but we’re only counting 25. Still, here are 25 free wallpapers that will probably look good on any device, not just the new OnePlus 2.

Below, we’ve put together a mini preview of the lot, but if you head through the download link, you can grab a .zip of all of the papers in full resolution.

Minima Pro Live Wallpaper Should be Your Next Purchase

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…)
