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…)

5 Fresh Icon Packs: Alos, Sawyer, Etched, Balx, and Tenuix

Within days of posting our last “5 fresh icon packs” feature, another 10 or so quickly popped up on our radar to be featured in the next round-up. I feel like I say this almost every time, but icon designers just keep getting better and better even though you would figure that ideas from this scene would plateau or stall for a while. Thankfully, that hasn’t even come close to happening, which is evidenced by the five packs we have to feature today.

We have packs that carry a vintage vibe, others that put a better spin on Apple’s flat iOS theme, and even one that puts to use the floating circle button from Google’s Material Design. If you can’t find a pack in this round-up to slap on your phone, then I’m not sure you have any taste.  (more…)
